Fresh off of the news that Sony has dubbed their Spider-Man-centric movie-verse the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, also known colloquially as S.P.U.M.C., the studio is making further strides into the at-home market. As movie theaters remain closed in most of the world, major content producers (whose names aren't Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, etc.) are looking for ways to get their very expensive moving pictures in the hands of audiences who make their big-ticket productions possible. We've already seen a shifting of VOD release dates and a …

We shared the (mostly) non-spoiler portion of our e-mail interview with The Platform director Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia yesterday, but now it's time to get into those burning spoiler-heavy questions we sent his way. With that being said, do not read this article if you haven't seen The Platform on Netflix yet! The movie concludes with Goreng (Ivan Massagué) teaming up with his new cellmate, Baharat (Emilio Buale), to ride the platform down from Floor 6 to ensure that everyone below gets a portion of food. Eventually they hit a point where no one is alive …
I can't get enough of The Platform. It was all I could think about back when I first saw it in September and that continued straight through to the film's March 20th release on Netflix. The Platform features an unforgettable performance from Ivan Massagué as Goreng, a man who agrees to spend six months in a prison-like facility called "The Hole" in exchange for an accredited diploma. It sounds like a reasonable trade at the start, but Goreng quickly comes to realize that the facility's meal delivery system has a devastating effect on the residents. The …

It’s an unusual time to be a movie fan. With the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down movie theaters and film productions internationally, the release calendar just went blank for the near future and got a whole lot more uncertain in the distant future. But fortunately, we live in an absurdly robust time of entertainment, and while theatrical distribution may be out for the moment, streaming platforms still have plenty of new content on the docket for the time being. And wouldn’t you know it, Netflix’s The Platform dropped last week and the Spanish dystopian thriller is one …
The Platform really did it for me back when I first saw the Midnight Madness selection for its big debut at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival. The Spanish horror thriller is a social allegory that’ll make you think twice about the world’s abysmal distribution of wealth, rampant selfishness and how challenging it can be to spark lasting change for the future. So yeah, a worthwhile message movie for just about any day of the week. But The Platform has been on my mind quite a bit the last few weeks in particular and it isn’t just …
Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia makes his feature directorial debut with an astoundingly creative and well crafted film. The Platform is a must-see feat of production design, score, performance, and high-concept execution that will likely leave your stomach extremely unsettled - and in this movie’s case, that’s a compliment. The movie stars Ivan Massagué as Goreng, a man who voluntarily agrees to serve six months in The Hole in exchange for an accredited diploma. The facility is a prison of sorts that’s structured vertically. Two inmates call each floor home for exactly 30 days. At the end of …
