You guys blew me up 2 or 3 days ago when The Platform released! Twitter DM’s, furtive emails, THiNC. recommendations, the works. So a shout out to Mir, Pancake, Frederic, William and Maria! Thanks for bringing this one to my attention. The Platform, or El Hoyo (ACK it’s in SPANISH?!?), is a movie crafted by the director Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia. And it is a mindjob to end all mindjobs… So, OK. Here we go: Netflix Movie The Platform Dissected and Explained.

Well, what is it? Hrmmm. Hard to explain. It would appear, that in the future, society has created a vertical jail of sorts called “The Pit.” And in this tower, the food for all the levels is placed on a platform the descends a level at a time. And as the platform moves its way into the bowels of tower, the occupants eat as much as they’d like, causing issues for the people further down. Obviously, this could be a fair system, if only the occupants of the tower were to take a sensible amount of food. Dot dot dot.

Alright, let me get out my copious notes…hold on a second. OK. Let’s do this – oh, wait. Please do not continue further down the page if you haven’t seen this movie. Just don’t. It’ll make my heart sad. And you’ll find your passage to this site barred when you come back. Trust me, you don’t want that.

The Rules of The Platform

  • There is one platform of food for the facility
  • The platform contains enough food for everyone
  • The platform only stops on each floor for a few minutes per day
  • Each level contains two inmates
  • Each inmate can bring one luxury item
  • If food is kept after the platform leaves, the heat will rise or fall until the occupants die
  • If the platform comes to a floor without inmates, it doesn’t stop
  • Each month, every inmate switches floors randomly

Goreng, our intrepid hero, heads to the offices of The Pit to sign up for a voluntary stay. In return for a six month stay, he will receive an advanced degree (and, oh boy will he receive an advanced degree, wow.) But generally, most people that come to The Pit are paying society for crimes that they have committed. At least, that is what I assumed the film was inferring.

As the movie starts, Goreng wakes to meet his floor-mate, Trimagasi. Trimagasi is a Pit veteran. He’s been on floor 72, 26, 43, 78, 11, 79, 32, 8 and his previous month was 132. Trimagasi introduces our naive Goreng to the rules of the system and the social hierarchies involved. Goreng had innocently assumed he could break his habit of smoking, as well as finish Don Quixote, a book he hasn’t seemed to be able to complete before. In a word, Goreng thought this would be a rehab, of sorts. A place that would allow him to improve. And afterwards, he’d have his degree, be absent his smoking habit, and have Quixote under his belt. (Talk about Quixotic!) His floor buddy on the other hand tells the story of his personal item…which happens to be the The Samurai Max. Trimagasi kept seeing ads for knives that were sharp, and easy to sharpen. Maybe his life was horrible because he didn’t have sharp knives? So, he purchased them, and then came the Samurai Max which sharpened themselves while he used them! He was so frustrated, he threw his TV out his window. And, in so doing, he accidentally killed an “illegal” walking on the street below. “Was it my fault I killed this guy? He shouldn’t have been there. They gave me a choice between The Pit and a psychiatric hospital.”

One day, Miharu rides the platform down, apparently she’s looking for her young daughter. Every month for her is the same. She kills her level-mate, and then rides her platform down to the bottom in search of her daughter. And as she continues on, she’s attacked by the floor below – but eventually, wins the day, and continues downwards on her journey.

Goreng: “Do you believe in God?”

Trimagasi: “This month, yeah, I believe in God.”

The Platform: Let’s Take Stock

So the setup and the layout of this movie is formed. We know we’ll be change levels…and, obviously, we will go up and we’ll go way down, as we learn how the different layers of our society (I mean The Pit, sorry…slip of the tongue) waste, and want. But is this a story about food conservation? I mean, literally that is what this film is about. But is that the message that it is pushing? I actually don’t think so. There is something more going on here than just a morality tale about sending your leftovers to the third world. But what?

Well, we hear that the top levels readily commit suicide. Why? Because they have plenty of “food” but nothing to look forward to. We hear stories about societal change and thinking holistically about everyone. Is it about socialism, or communism? Maybe it’s a political manifesto that would make Stalin or Marx proud. No, it’s not a political manifesto either, though, I’m sure you could make it one easily enough. Keep thinking about that though, what is this story’s larger message? Food, Stuff, Position, Power, Change, Politics, Revolution…it has to be something of note.

The Platform: Level 171

When Goreng wakes the next morning, he finds himself bound and tied to his bed. Apparently Trimagasi has anticipated their massive drop in social status, and has taken matters into his own hands. Goreng struggles, but finds himself unable to move no matter what he does. And then, after a week of not eating each day, Trimagasi decides he is going to have his first bite of Goreng. After taking a strip out of Goreng’s inner thigh, the platform begins lowering its empty contents to them. And on it is Miharu who saves Goreng from Trimagasi, kills him, and then flees lower again on the platform. And as Goreng suffers from his wounds and his starvation, he eventually decides he needs to at least eat some of his dead floor-mate.

The Platform: Level 33

The next month he drops into level 33, which means, food. Also, it means a new floor-mate since he ate his last one. And it is Imoguiri, who happens to be the same woman who was his registrar. She’s the woman that received his application, and evaluated his desire to enter The Pit. She’d been working for the administration for eight years before she decided to go herself. Her luxury item was her little pet dog. Once she sees it herself, she is horribly ashamed of what she had been doing. But she was determined to come and help, to convince the individuals in The Pit only to eat a limited allotment, thus ensuring survival for everyone at The Pit. Her plan, was to create a plate of food for each person in the level below. And for them to create plates for the level below them. And thereby, guaranteeing enough food. She wanted to create “spontaneous solidarity” from the inside out. One day, Miharu, rides the platform down and eats Imoguiri’s dog. Yeah, that’s the kind of movie this is. Normally, with any sane film, the number one rule is that you don’t kill the pet animals of the film. It just isn’t done. But not only is it killed, but eaten. Well, it turns out Imoguiri has cancer, and she’s beyond caring about anything anymore.

The Platform: Level 202

Yeah. This is bad. Originally we were told by Trimagasi that there were 200 levels. But now we are on floor 202?? And Imoguiri is already dead when Goreng wakes the first morning. Now Goreng has Imoguiri as well as Trimagasi firmly embedded in his head, constantly talking to him. Imoguiri is actually telling Goreng that he is The Pit’s Messiah…the Messiah of Crap. Goreng, through Imoguiri’s voice, is convincing himself he needs to eat her to survive. “Unless you eat my body, and drink my blood, you cannot have eternal life.” (Which, is an interesting passage of scripture. Because when Jesus originally said it, He was just as controversial as this film is. It blew the disciples’ and his follower’s minds. Many actually stopped following Him after He said it. They just couldn’t grok it. We’ll talk more about this later.)

The Platform: Level 6

When Goreng wakes at the turn of the new month, he’s greeted with a new level-mate, and his name is Baharat. And Baharat has brought as his personal item, a long run of rope. And he’s heard from God, and he’s told him that he needs Baharat to climb his way out of The Pit. Well, when Baharat attempts to climb his way up, utilizing the help of the layer above, they crap on him. The fact that Baharat is black, and the couple that live on the layer above is white, basically guarantees that we need to reevaluate everything we’ve seen up to this point through a racial vantage. How much of The Pit is racist? How much of what we’ve seen is society’s racism by even who they’ve put in here? Yeah. Personally, that was a rough encounter that really made me rethink what was happening here from top to bottom.

Now that Goreng is on level 6, he tells Baharat that he attempted to count how many levels there were. By counting the average time per floor, and when the platform returns to the top, he figured there were something like 250 levels. Goreng figures the two of them can head downwards on the platform and force people not to eat more than their fair share. And that they’d do that by not allowing the top fifty to eat anything at all.

“Only a lunatic leaves 6.”

“Or two lunatics on fire.”

The two do just that. On the way down, they do pretty well keeping the people off the food. Then on one floor, they come across a wise man, Sr. Brambang, and he tells them they should send a message back to level zero. And they decide that the Panna Cotta will be their message – that they will send this untouched desert all the way back to the surface, and it will cause a revolution of change. So the two men protect the Panna Cotta as they go.

They come across a level wherein two men are viciously attacking Miharu. Stabbing her to death even. Goreng and Baharat jump into the fray. Baharat catches a Katana to his gut, and Goreng is repeatedly beaten senseless and bloody. Somehow though, the two continue their progress down. And after they get to fifty, they begin handing food out, and things get easier. And when the dynamic duo make it to 333, they are confused. But it’s because they have found where Miharu’s daughter has been hiding.

The Panna Cotta & The Girl

But, because all the food is gone, the two men have a decision to make. The Panna Cotta remains, but it was going to be the message that would get the administration to take notice. Goreng finally convinces Baharat to let the Panna Cotta go. And the young girl consumes it whole. But what is their message going to be? They need to think of something that will convince the people running The Pit of the horrors committed here, and to change. And that is when Goreng comes up with the idea that the girl will be the message.

The Ending of The Platform Explained

Wait, what? The insanity that is The Platform is really hard to reconcile. Obviously there are parallels to society today. The have and the have-nots. Food inequalities. Power disparities. Political chaos and turmoil that exacerbates inequalities. There are racial injustices and fault lines that have long divided our world. But what could this movie really be about? Why don’t we walk through a couple of different explanations in order to kinda think through some of the ways this movie could be interpreted.

The Tragedy of the Commons

But before we do, we have to discuss a simple economic concept called, The Tragedy of the Commons which is a concept that comes into play when a system is driven by shared resources. All others will independently work to maximize their own self interest, and will actively disregard the overall common good. Wait, what? OK, look – if you have ten sheep, and I have ten sheep, and we have chosen to share our backyards to take care of them, we have a problem. Why? Because I will do absolutely everything I can to get my sheep as much of the grass as I can. Worse, I will even go so far as ruin the grass entirely, I will let my sheep eat the grass into oblivion as opposed to caring for the grass in both our yards. And worse, you are going to do your very best to get yours, which perpetuates the problem. This movie is a field study into the reality of the Tragedy of the Commons and human nature. The only way for this problem to be solved is through someone breaking the cycle of selfishness. OK, now that we understand that, let’s walk through a couple possible explanations.

Explanation 1 – Food-ness

One way to look at this movie is solely through the lens of food. The movie is casting a light on those that have food, and those that don’t. It is literally taking this platform, of food, and showing the problems that our capitalistic, world economy is doing to the least of these. It’s intended as a spotlight on the most unfortunate among us. Yeah, well, that’s one way of looking at it, but I think if you are guessing that this is the movie’s goal, you probably got pretty bored with the movie really fast. YES, I KNOW, my MOM says I need to eat my green beans for this very reason! There’s a starving kid in Africa somewhere!! Yeah, I just don’t buy this as a real explanation. I mean, sure. This is obviously there. But I don’t think it’s the main point the movie is making. I mean, maybe?

Explanation 2 – Politicalism

OK, if it’s bigger than food, and the point needs to be broader, what about politics? Could it be that the movie is pushing against the west’s capitalist agenda? Maybe it is saying that through a more compassionate approach, a more socialist position, we could care for people and their more dire needs. I mean, is it too hard to expect that everyone would be fed, and everyone would be cared for in a modern society? Politics does deal with the problem of constrained resources. That is really what politics are for. But did you notice when, in the beginning, Goreng tells the people below that they should ration the food for the people below? Trimagasi asks Goreng, “What are you, a Communist?” Even those individuals that are going without in this film make fun of socialism. So it just doesn’t seem like that is what is happening here. Narrow. Seems too narrow.

Explanation 3 – Power Strata

Is Netflix’s movie saying something about the power strata in our daily lives. Those that have and those that do not? Could it be that maybe the movie is commenting on the natural way in which society clumps into hierarchies and these hierarchies naturally look down on those that are below us? This seems feasible in that we literally can see these social structures literally look down on each other. But the flaw in this theory is that these structures are built up, and torn down again each month. So, there isn’t much in the way of permanence in these structures. Or maybe that is the point. Given a chance to be a level six, there is little chance that you’ll be giving up your position to a level seven idiot. Hrm. I don’t know.

Explanation 4 – Spiritualism

Of all the references that are in the actual script that support one theory over another, it’s within the world of spiritualism. I mean, even before Goreng gets but maybe a month or two in he’s referred to as a Messiah. Then later on, when his dead level-mates are talking to him about eating Imoguiri, we have Bible verse after Bible verse quoted (obviously taken out of context). Then, as Goreng and Baharat are heading down the platform, the people being kept from eating are asking whether or not they are the Messiah, and didn’t the Messiah multiply food, not withhold it? No, it isn’t purely about spiritualism, but I do think we are actually getting closer now.

Explanation 5 – Ethics and Duty

Goodness. Basic goodness. Where was the goodness in this movie? Hrm. There wasn’t much of it at all. Maybe Miharu? The cannibal. She was good to our Goreng. Saved his life even. But where else? Goreng attempted to be good on occasion, but failed repeatedly. It was a recurring theme throughout the entire film.

There’s a field of Philosophy called Deontological Ethics, founded by Immanuel Kant, which places special emphasis on the relationship between duty and the morality of human actions. Kant said that we must act out of duty, and that our motives in these actions define the rightness and wrongness of these actions. So, I am on level 12, and I forgo eating anything from the platform…this is a moral good. Because people below level 12 will now be able to eat. But, if my reason for not eating was that I was dieting? Yeah, not so much. But throughout this film, there was nearly zero effort from any of the characters to do the right thing. To help others. To be good.

The entirety of The Pit is defined by hundreds of individuals driven completely by self interest. Totally. When am I going to get mine? And when I do, how can I maximize mine, even at the expense of yours? There is literally no one deontologicaling here.

But Which Is It?

This is a dark, dark movie. It is a metaphor, or maybe an allegory, telling the story of human life on earth. All of it. Think about it, global over-fishing… tragedy of the commons. Global food crisis… tragedy of the commons. Global warming… tragedy of the commons. When humans are unregulated, and unchecked, they will do anything and everything to maximize theirs. The only way to solve this problem is to find a savior. (There actually are thinkers out there (like Elinor Ostrom) who have solved the Tragedy of the Commons, but they almost exclusively assume collectives, or state actions. But that is beside the point here.)

And yes, our Christ-like savior figure in this movie is Goreng. He came to The Pit with the hopes of blissfully spending his six months there and then earning his degree. But when he realizes what is really going on here, he has to do something. He has to change. And he needs to do something in order to break the cycle for everyone else. And even though we are well over 3,000 words so far, there’s one last thing we have GOT to talk about. And that is Miguel de Cervantes’ novel, Don Quixote.

Don Quixote and The Platform

I’ve always said, when watching movies, if a book is introduced, even if it’s just sitting on the counter, it is important. If you are lost for what is happening in a movie, head to the library, and check the books out and flip through them. The only real cultural reference given throughout the course of this movie is, as I’ve mentioned, Don Quixote. In 2015, Cervantes’ novel, Don Quixote, turned 400. FOUR HUNDRED! And regularly, Don Quixote finds itself being voted as the best book of all time. OF ALL TIME. It is a really important book. Trust me on this. It’s big. It’s big because Cervantes himself has said that his goal in writing the book is to undermine the influence of the chivalric books of the day. And he did that while making his readers laugh with some really funny entertainment.

Don Quixote is a novel about a man at the age of fifty who has completely run out of ideas or motivation to move on any further. And so he decides, he will just read his way to the end of his life. And our hero dines exclusively on a diet of romantic novels regaling the reader with heroes and chivalry. And poof, while reading one of these novels, his mind goes crazy, and he thinks he is one of these heroes in the novels he’s been reading. From this moment forward, Quixote is living on a different plane of reality. You know, the reality that makes Don tilt at fake monsters that are really just windmills. But it justifies his existence, it justifies the rest of Quixote’s life.

Netflix Movie The Platform Dissected and Explained - one of the craziest, and insane movies of all time. And it really is possible to figure out.

I mean, look at this photo of Cervantes – and consider what Goreng looks like! Here – I will help remind you!!

Come on! This isn’t accidental. This is all on purpose. It is important in helping us understand what is going on here.

My Final Thoughts on The Platform

I believe that this movie is a modern day Don Quixote. Goreng wakes up, in the middle of his life, and decides, I am going to spend the rest of my life, reading books. And he believes that The Pit is a great place to finish this book he’s always wanted to read. And in the middle of his reading, he wakes up, and realizes he would spend the rest of his life tilting at windmills. He was going to do something incredibly stupid. And that was, he was going to send a message to the administration. He didn’t know what that message would be – but he was going to send a message. At first it was the Panna Cotta. Then he realizes that the right message to send would be the girl that they find down at level 333.

Goreng is our modernist Christ figure, intent on turning the tables in the courtyard. He’s going to do this insane, flawed, and utterly futile thing! Do I think sending the girl up to level zero will change anything? No. I don’t. And we are even told it won’t work through the movie’s references back to Don Quixote. He is going to die in making this play. And yet we know it will ultimately do nothing to change the make up of how The Pit will work. It is a Quixotic tilting at windmills. Alright, I’m done talking. Now, what do you think? What do you think this crazy movie is all about?

If you’d like to find other crazy closed box movies that are extraordinarily well written, tight, and worth watching…you might want to consider: We’ve Forgotten More Than We Ever Knew, The Exam, and Faults.

    No comments yet with everyone home in quarantine? Wow. This is hands down one of the craziest, gross and best films that Netflix has ever released. I’ve been fairly disappointed in their releases as of late. The end really makes you think. It’s relevant to society in so many ways and of course as you mentioned, the book is important. I don’t have anything groundbreaking to add here as I think you pretty much got it covered. Now I’m off to see if I can watch The Lighthouse!

    Agreed with you, Lisa, this movie is possibly the best I’ve seen in recent memory, it was that good for me. But what about Monos, someone asked? Pfffttt. Not even close (sorry, Taylor, ha).

    What’s stopping me from commenting was the thought that, whatever I could add would simply not do justice to this singularly brilliant piece of cinema. I mean, what else needed to be said when the proceedings were so gripping for me that I had to pause every now and then just to catch my breath, all the while dreading the inevitable that however much I was enjoying this, all good things would still have to come to an end.

    One possible gripe, nay, one minor imperfection, is that this movie is not very subtle in what it’s trying to say and how it’s telling it. But what it may lose in artfulness and artiness (?), it more than makes up for in making the movie more accessible to the average joes and janes. This is one thought-provoking movie that is also thoughtful enough that it can be enjoyed and understood on so many levels regardless of the, er intellectual level, of its audience. Contrast this to other intellectually-stimulating movies that are just too high-brow that they should probably come with user guides. Looking at you, The Lighthouse, er I mean Starfish (sorry again, Taylor, haha).

    Maybe just a final bit of remark from someone who’s supposed to have none, and that is, this movie is based on such a wonderfully simple idea and executed in such a precise and efficient manner, it makes a refreshing change to the current trend of rambling movies that take close to 3 hours to get not much of a point across. I’m thinking Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (sorry yet again, Taylor, er wait, you probably don’t really like this one for once, all the same, hahaha).

      Hey DeKev…
      I actually disagree. I mean I agree with all that you have said, but not the bit you said about it being too obvious. This movie is not about food. It’s not about the wealthy versus the poor. It’s about tilting at windmills. Now, the windmill he chooses to tilt at is about food. But I don’t think the point of this movie is obvious at all. Like, not even a little bit.

      But maybe I’m wrong just this one time! Hahaha. It was amazing though. I can’t stop recommending it. And all my real life friends think I’m insane for liking a film about cannibalism! Hahaha. Oh well. Can’t win em all.

    I came here to recommend this movie and instead found this awesome explanation.
    I cant help but agree with the problem of the commons but i also this this movie has a deep nod to society at multiple scales. You mentioned classes or hierarchies but stopped there because of the monthly changes. I think the monthly changes could be a way to show how fragile a hierarchy is. Sometimes its out of our control when we fall from grace (I hate to be that guy but recent wold events prove that) On the other hand accidental choices can let you jump the ladder (all the lucky bitcoin millionaires..?)
    Did you also notice the ‘head chef’ acts like a kind of god? I got the greek or norse vibe from level 0 where the head chef is the god of gods and the other cooks are the lesser gods. Especially the scene with the hair in the food. There is plenty of religious story’s where the main god is unhappy with the actions of the other gods (/angles depending on your religion)
    On a seperate note I cant work out if the little girl was even there or not. I agree that Goreng has lost sanity by the end, I’m just not sure how far gone he is. There are too many things that could have happened to the little girl as you see throughout the movie. Also wouldn’t the bas ass mother have made it to the bottom at least once? We are also told that Miharu (bad ass mum) doesn’t have a daughter..
    I think Goreng got to the bottom and on his death bed was like YOLO I’m eating the panna cotta.
    What a movie though! :)

    Haha, you’re right, of course, Taylor, what was I thinking? The movie cannot be less subtle if it’s possible that just about anyone can have a different take from it, and for someone like you, likely from the upper levels so to speak, multiple takes, even. But here I was, on some low 60s level I think, yet still so smug in the knowledge I had the movie figured out as basically an observation of how human behaviour changes according to circumstances. My reason being the Administration must have set up The Hole for something in the first place, something loftier, nobler than for sadistic or entertainment purposes, that is, yikes. In any case, you have just made the movie even better for me… truly mind-blowing.

    I felt the same. I was so excited to comment and found that I’d just be repeating things already said. I agree this film is better than Monos and I wasn’t a huge fan of OUATIA. Someone below mentioned the obsession of the head chef which I found interesting as well because usually in a prison setting no one would care so much about presentation. This movie for a closed box movie is a lot to unpack and I’m still thinking about what it all means 2 days later, especially in regard to the little girl since it had been said in the film that the woman had no daughter at all.

    I also wondered if he just cracked by the end and had some kind of dying delusions since he was already speaking to his dead previous cell mates. Especially since it was made known the woman had no daughter. I think the ending was great being left up to interpretation like that but I’d love to know what the writer intended there.

    Is it possible the little girl is real after all, rather than just a figment of Goreng’s imagination? I say this because Baharat was able to see the girl too. Or is that because Baharat was already a figment of Goreng’s imagination by that point? But if we follow this line of thought, how far back along can we assume Goreng has already cracked and things we see on screen were already entirely his hallucinations? It probably doesn’t matter anyway, because to me, the girl is largely symbolic. Depending on what one takes from the movie, the ending with her riding up the platform can be representative of ‘transcendence’, ‘rescuing the princess and beating the game’, ‘sending a message’, ’tilting at windmills’, ‘perpetuating the cycle’, etc.

    I find the mother, Miharu, equally, if not more, interesting. To me, she serves as a barely controllable outlying force, introduced to the system by the Administration, whether by design or by accident. While she is wont to throw a spanner or two to the works, she also has the potential to initiate change to what is more or less an inertia, as things stand in The Hole. Again, following this line of thought further, she can even be seen as the harbinger, someone who has the potential to herald a saviour. She does this simply by sowing the idea of a hidden child, or perhaps more correctly, by cultivating a conviction in others that there exists a far nobler selfless cause than one own’s mere survival in The Hole.

    I think he cracked as soon as he ate his first cell mate. Reality was likely too much to bear. Remember he thought this was some kind of rehab to quit smoking and get an accredited degree and boy, was he wrong!

    *Slow clap* You always blow my mind with the explanations. I was watching this movie and just thought I want to read Taylor’s thoughts about this piece of work. Piece of art for me, really, although it’s a dark, dark movie and not for everyone that’s for sure. Thank you! I knew you would appreciate it! Completely agree. It’s not about food. It’s about so, so much more than that. Killed my heart with that line, ‘We need to send a message above even if we know it won’t work’. Too much to think about our daily self revolutions. But the message always has to be sent, hasn’t it?
    Best!

    I really loved this movie and your take, but I’m curious how your theories fit with the character of Imoguiri. She seems relatively selfless to me. She volunteered to try to help the people trapped in the pit; continued splitting the rations despite the lower level mocking her; alternated feeding herself and her dog to avoid taking from anyone else; and (probably) killed herself in the cell rather than by jumping to leave Goreng with her body. Without her, I don’t think Goreng would have ever made the choices he did on Level 6 – it almost felt like Imoguiri was the messiah and Goreng was her disciple. Would love to know what you thought about her character!
