The Hunger Games. The first of the movies.
Taken me a bit of time to catch up with this now cult movie but there you go.
Anyone find it as disturbing as me?
The “two worlds” bit is not new, yet this gladiatorial theme, the rich watching the slaughter of the “poor” in an arena? That got to me from the get go.
The gap between wealthy classes and poor workers portrayed so very strongly. The use of life as a political plaything. The depth of the depravity of a totalitarian government and how that form of government works with the media to exercise total control.
What, I’m reading too much into a simple movie?
If I am then what sort of a message was this?
