The Hunger Games (2012)

Post-apocalyptic America: a fascist state rules by fear and entertainment. The entertainment being Running Man crossed with Battle Royale. Through the protagonist, it explains functional sociopathy to a teen audience.

Highly predictable script but TWO reasons why this film is so worth watching:

Beautiful cinematography and a set design that's literally an actor in its own right, and easily the best actor in the cast.
