Battle Royale

2000

Kinji Fukasaku
Director

A classroom full of kids is dumped on a remote island with a bunch of weapons and told to kill eachother off. Violent satire on reality TV and human mores and although reminiscent of Running Man or The Most Dangerous Game, this version is carried off with such glee and flair that it stands alone.

Absolutely brilliant if you can take it.
