Everyone has been binge-watching shows during this COVID-19 lockdown. Some people want to watch things that distract them, and others want to watch relatable films for our current situation. For me, its the latter. Since it is the end of the world, supposedly, I am suggesting you watch “Snowpiercer.”
The beginning of the film asks a resonating question for me: “Do you remember what steak tastes like?”
What if five years from now, we have to explain to our children what restaurants were? Or maybe a concert? A movie in theatres? Wow.
“Snowpiercer,” like other apocalyptic films, has this theme of disappearance of societal norms that is similar to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the movie, people are rationing blood blocks to survive. The film portrays classicism, showing people in the back of the train having to fight to get to the front of the train to make a better life. Does this sound familiar to you?
It’s an exhilarating watch that will make you forget about life for a minute, putting you into a different reality to inspire you further this COVID-19 pandemic will come to an end soon.
