We saw Snowpiercer´╗┐ Friday night at the Rialto - medieval great chain of being laid out on a train holding all of humanity left after a global warming cure goes disastrously wrong. An unrecognizable Chris Evans with John Hurt leads a peoples' revolt against Tilda Swinton and Ed Harris. French graphic novel adapted by the director of The Host (one of the best Godzilla-esque movies of recent years) and the unsettlingly disturbing Mother. Some great performances, several very cool fight scenes, lots of class inequality and dystopia reminiscent of The Hunger Games and Bioshock Infinite but more much reminiscent of Rollerball in pacing, sequencing, and tone. Recommended.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen Rollerball in years, and I just got the recent and fantastic Blu-Ray transfer recently. Should watch it.
