Okay, yesterday I managed to get over the bulk on my second sit through, and while I'll finish up today, it's enough to say a final verdict. Some spoiler could be below:
It's a motley of crude ideas which fail to unfold in their entirety, and the inconsistencies in the story prevents me to build a speculation on them which could offer a closure to the story. There is no real moral to offer here, even making the ultimate sacrifice doesn't lead to a salvation, and even the promise of change is so thin, making the clemency seem just a pointless act.
I think what the viewer can get out of this really depends on what mindset he/she already has. On the part of the creators and the most likely target audience it might be just a mental masturbation over a topic which won't get ever resolved - similarly to ecological problems and alcoholism how it is mentioned in the article I wrote about here: >>36878
In certain circles it's fashionable to talk about these societal problems, and this movie is a great opportunity to nod knowingly and act deebly goncerned and empathic in front of their peers.
I already wrote, for a horror it's worth a watch (but don't repeat it as I did), I'm gonna hold to this opinion. It's depth is knee high, at least not ankle, but fails to bring us in to the waist.
