  1. Ariel_'s rating of the film Punishment Park

    The now defunct Internal Security Act of 1950 is used to ground the plot in a real world foundation. Under the authority of powers granted by Title II of the Act, Nixon sets up secret tribunals for trying and sentencing political radicals, black power activists, leftists, and draft dodgers. The story itself was interesting enough, but would have been much more suspenseful if the radicals weren’t so wimpy. 80/100

  2. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Punishment Park

    A masterpiece with limited resources.

  3. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Punishment Park

    A very angry, uncompromising film dealing with fascistic tendencies in the American political system. The montage is intriguing and complex, the sound layer with its shooting and fighting sounds as well as the documentary radio messages contribute to this complexity.

  4. Dimpfelmoser66's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Five minutes into the movie, you know how this is going to end, and being this predictable, it is rather boring. Also, they overdid the Cinéma vérité style slightly as documentaries of the time are never shot as amateurish as this. They could have built up so much more suspense with the actual storyline whereas portraying all policemen as sadistic losers, gives the whole thing a rather one dimensional feel.

  5. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Love Watkins overall, but this one felt a bit forced. A great, great concept though.

  6. Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Punishment Park. PETER WATKINS États-Unis, 1971. toujours aussi vrai et actuel. On retrouve, 50 ans après, des "Punishment Parks" partout dans le monde, une franchise qui s'est bien exportée et qui n'est pas prête de s'arrêter !

  7. ikkini's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Une puissante fable politique !

  10. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Punishment Park

    What a disturbing and relevant quasi-science fiction film/mockudrama- this is an absolutely haunting film!

  11. JCPJD's rating of the film Punishment Park

    My first Peter Watkins film. What strikes me is how this very powerful and cost effective method of storytelling isn't used more often by filmmakers. Create a scenario, film it using script and improv, cut it with a voice over and you have a film.

  12. Samuel Nashaat's rating of the film Punishment Park

  13. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Peter Watkins arrastra esa diléctica narrativa de sus primeros filmes, sobre ficciones hipotéticas que son documentadas simulando un tiempo real. El director ejerce un filme que se inclina al simulacro, uno que se infiltra entre la acción en un inicio de forma pasiva, pero luego activa. Esto último es propio de "Punishment park". El discurso es contestatario y literal. Es la denuncia frente a un compromiso coyuntural

  14. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Punishment Park

    “You’re a lying sucker, you’re lying to the camera, you’re lying to your mama...you lying punk” Devastating and disturbing. Brilliant film making.

  15. Nikola Enchev's rating of the film Punishment Park

    I fascinating exposition to the world we find ourselves in today.

  16. dmol's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Incredible. Wish I could fire words as eloquently as those rebels do.

  17. Roshi's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Very timely and poignant film. Remarkable. Please watch.

  18. lostlevel's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Powerful and sadly as relevant then as it is now, if not more so. Uncomfortable but necessary viewing.

  19. Real_Stephanie's rating of the film Punishment Park

    A remarkable piece of work - bold and well put together. I feel genuinely thrilled at having had the opportunity to see this.

  20. Bogomil Gospodinov's rating of the film Punishment Park

    A great work. Sadly becomes even more important after the introduction of the Patriot Act and various laws enforced in the 21st century. It is unfortunate but not surprising that good cinema is often a well-crafted prophecy.

  21. Laia Gordi's rating of the film Punishment Park

  22. Squashua's rating of the film Punishment Park

    Excuse me for cursing but fuck. This is perhaps the most brutal film i've ever watched. It is absolutely SCATHING on its critique on the American government & society and i'm not at all surprised to hear it was quickly swept under the star-spangled rug upon release. Clockwork Orange, Mad Max, Hunger Games dystopia stripped of artifice - raw mockumentary coupled with the dread that this could easily be today's world.

  23. Adam Rapley's rating of the film Punishment Park

    An incredibly well produced and well written film! The script is remarkable and the conveyed emotions are captured perfectly! Causes genuine anger directed towards the panel and national guard in the film, most shockingly because of the fact there are individuals today in power with that mindset!

  24. Steven Dawson's rating of the film Punishment Park

    This provocative and convincing satire of American totalitarian tendencies is a fantastic relic of the failed revolutionary generation which hasn't aged as much as it ought to have.
