Peter Watkins United States, 1971

Timbo of Boston's rating of the film Punishment Park

Not to be missed. This stunning faux documentary fashioned with anger and utter disenchantment with the American system. It is frighteningly prescient. . When I show the film to college students, there is usually a foreign student who asks seriously; "Is this what really happened?" The film made me a real Peter Watkins fan. His commitment to the agit-prop style is inspirational.
