Watching Snowpiercer on Netflix, it's a dystopian future type series where everyone on earth has died in a massive freeze other than those on a 1001 carriage long train that continually circles the earth. The people in first and second class are the paying customers, those in 3rd class didn't have to pay for a ticket but have to work on the train, and the 'tailies' are a group who fought there way onto the train before it departed and are living in s*** conditions locked at the back of the train. You get the premise...those with privilege want to keep it for themselves, those with nothing want it to be shared more equally.

First episode didn't really blow me away but really got into it after that.
It's a film, no? By the same bloke who directed the really exceptionally good Parasite....

Just looked it up...you're watching a US remake of what is actually a decent film by a very good director! Okja is worth a watch too (same director and on Netflix) but his standout is Parasite (on Prime) which if you haven't seen is, I think, very good. Got to be prepared for subtitles though.....
