i thought everyone got it? It was, like, pretty damn blatant about it?

like, it's a fascist government indoctrinating youth and demanding military service from them before it grants them full citizen status then throwing them into a meat grinder.
it's not at all subtle. it basically turns to camera every few minutes and goes “you are getting this, right?” basically bashes you over the head with it.

‘Verhoeven made "a movie about fascists who aren’t aware of their fascism." The approach made sense, given that the director grew up in a Nazi-occupied Holland and therefore had some strong ideas about the subject.’
