Spanish movie on Netflix (english subs available) that really goes well with all the quarantining and self-isolating!

Movie genre: Science fiction horror-thriller film
Quick summary: Inmates are in a large, tower-style prison where they are fed by a platform that gradually descends to all levels of the tower.
The catch: There would be enough food for everyone if inmates took their fair share of food... but do you think they actually do this?? Of course not! Inmates end up resorting to any means necessary to survive in a tower that they can't escape.

There have been some pretty cruel scenes... do NOT watch if you have a weak stomach!! sick2.gif You have been warned!!

I watched it the other day. Very “Cube” with its simplicity and shot so well. Really incredible and intense.

Great film, very grotesque, but intriguing and captivating at the same time. My only qualm was that the logistics of the world/what was going on made very little sense, but I can accept the main point of the film is allegory so can look past it, and it did have some really effective and extremely bleak commentary on society that is quite literally perfect for the time we're living in.

I liked the film. Interesting concept and the ending was a bit "lol what". But it was good!
