kubrickhallway's rating of the film Punishment Park

I love the pacing here. There’s basically just a tent and the desert, yet it’s all so wonderfully done and edited together that it feels like a thriller. The politics of it, especially concerning police violence and the nature of men with power, resonate today in a way that surprises at first but infuriates once it sinks in.
