Three sentence movie reviews: Battle Royale
Thanks to The Next Picture Show Podcast, I watched this incredibly brutal story with a plot similar to the Hunger Games books written by Susan Collins. It was a much more violent movie than I usually watch*, but I appreciated the realistic range of feelings expressed by the teenagers. That said, I’m happy to have watched it, and don’t plan on watching it ever again.
*I needed a palate cleanser after finishing it, but alas it was past my bedtime.
