Battle Royale

What's it about?

In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill each other under the revolutionary "Battle Royale" act.

Why did we pick it?

Equal parts dark dystopian horror and laugh out loud satire, it uses its shocking premise to pull you in and disturb but subvert your expectations holding a mirror up to how ridiculous it is, going full circle in its self-awareness.

Who's in it? Tatsuya Fujiwara - Shuya Nanahara (Boy #15)

Aki Maeda - Noriko Nakagawa (Girl #15)

Who made it?

Kinji Fukasaku - Director

Koushun Takami - Writer (Novel)

Kenta Fukasaku - Writer (Screenplay)
