The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
This movie was written by Noah Baumbach. He has screenplay credits for The Life Aquatic, Greenberg, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Squid and the Whale, and one of the first Screened Besties, Kicking & Screaming. I have no idea what to make of this situation.
