Battle Royale (1990) is one of the most challenging and controversial films ever made… and is The Hunger Games, Lost, and Survivor mixed together, ramped up to a fever pitch.
An instant classic in Japan upon release in 1990, it’s the story of how, in the future, as a way of keeping their youth in line, the Japanese government yearly captures a random class of ninth-grade students, drops them on an island, and it’s survival of the fittest…helps if you know how to use a cross-bow or semi-automatic rifle. Given three days to off your classmates and survive…how would you do? Battle Royale is based on the shockwave novel by Koushun Takami — we’ll be raffling off a copy at the movie night.
