Snowpiercer (2013)A post-apocalyptic story that takes place entirely within a huge train of a thousand carriages. The world as we know it no longer exists: an ice age has devoured everything leaving humanity confined to the enormous perpetual motor machine that prevents freezing with its constant movement. But, on this train, not all cars are the same.
While the compartments closest to the front machine have all the privileges, the rear cars are a ruthless and overcrowded place, the site of the greatest human misery, crass and full of disease. The story begins when a man manages to survive the harsh cold that has consumed the world to get out of the back cars and reach the privileged area. If you want movies like The Platform, this is the #1 must watch.

Parasite (2019)A static image places us in a house located under the pavement. We can see through its window the outside life, and with a slight panning down, we abandon this view and get into the house, where Gi, the son of a family that subsists as well as he can, is worried about not having a wifi signal. This image, -among many others that swarm throughout the film-, could synthesize Parasite in a precise and concrete way.
Because the film is the universal story of social inequality, but told with a black, acidic and cruel humor, applying these inequalities to our present - with all the opportunities this implies - and showing how feasible it is to reverse the status quo, and whether it is finally possible to move from the underground to the surface. Even if this means literally becoming a parasite. An Oscar winner and a great recommendations for fans of The Platform.
