Punishment Park

Punishment Park

Directed by Peter Watkins

In a desert zone in southwest California, a civilian tribunal passes sentence on groups of dissidents and gives them the option of participating in law enforcement training exercises in the Bear Mountain Punishment Park. In an atmosphere of aggression and intimidation and in soaring temperatures, the prisoners have to fight for their lives as they are hunted down by the forces of law and order.

As a civilian tribunal passes sentence on groups of dissidents and gives them the option of participating in law enforcement training, the prisoners in an atmosphere of aggression and intimidation have to fight for their lives as they are hunted down by the forces of law and order.

Cast: Patrick Boland, Kent Foreman, Carmen Argenziano

Fascinating mock-doctumentary that was certainly ahead of its time. The dialogue felt relentless at times. Maybe its because it feels like history repeating...

A strange concept for a movie - political, relevant, interesting but also a little slow.

I dont enjoy western files, political or war or older stuff. But this movie/docu was really interesting. To the point that i stayed up later than usual just to see the ending. Very relevant to the current times. Now i need to look it up to see if its for real or based on something. Either way the message is very clear. Provocative!
