Storyline

In a dystopian future with absence of resources, people can freely to inn The Pit, a vertical underground jail where after an interview to check the possible admission, the volunteer passes a determined time in exchange to get more social position. Hoping to get an approved title, Goreng wakes up in the level 18 to discover The Pit's structure: only one cell of 6 meters height (so-so 20 feet) per level with a rectangular hole in the middle in all them, used by The Pit's administration to descend a too rectangular floating platform with the food for all prisoners, downing from level 0 (the restaurant where food is cooked) to the bottom, staying 2 minutes per level. With veteran Trimagasi as cell's partner, Goreng learns eventually The Pit's main rules: 1st, each inmate arrives The Pit with a personal object from the exterior; 2nd, the inmates can't keep food off the platform under penalty to die by extreme heat or cold; and 3rd, one time per month all inmates are asleep with gas in ...

Brazen, Imaginative and Uninhibited
16 September 2019 | by Raven-1969See all my reviews

The prison of the future contains a pit in which a platform of food descends room by room until nothing is left. Inmates are allowed one thing, anything, from the outside world into their cells and while most choose weapons, some bring odd things like a dog or a book. Many inmates resort to killing to survive, but one of them - a reader of Don Quixote - decides instead to send a message to the powers that be.

If you find frequent stabbings and rotten, half-eaten bodies offensive, this uninhibited, brazen, graphic, raw and irreverent film may not be for you. While I appreciated the intense and primal nature of the film, at times it was a little too bizarre and orderless even for me. Seen at the Toronto international film festival.
