10 Best Dystopian Movies To Binge Watch On Netflix


Snowpiercer (2013)

Survivors of a failed climate-change experiment that wiped out most of all life forms on earth are forced to ride their lives out in a perpetually moving train called the Snowpiercer. Inside, a caste system dictates who gets to live or die.

Naturally, those who fall in the lower class are subjected to prejudice. They live in inhospitable conditions cramped up in the farthest part of the train. They struggle to live through meagre food rations.

Meanwhile, the affluent continue to live like there is no suffering, sickness, and death happening farther down. They live in grandeur, unaware of the strife that surrounds them.

As with any class system, there tends to be a revolution against discrimination. This film culminates with those poor brave ones making the journey forward to revolt against their unjust treatment. They risk their lives for a taste of justice and opulence.

Snowpiercer may be set in a steampunk, dystopian future but its story is very raw and real. It tells of despair and rage and of the hopelessness that poverty can bring.
