Elena Lazic's rating of the film Punishment Park

For a society that functions on the image it gives of itself, maybe the camera is the most efficient weapon of the revolution. Fanon's argument for violence as the only legitimate answer to oppression seems to hold. Watched the film the day after the Ferguson verdict and it's hard to call it fictional in 2014.
