Ice, ice maybe

‘Snowpiercer’ is a glimpse into an odd future

By Ryan Syrek
In quite possibly the most literal scifi metaphor ever, the rich live lives of luxury at the front of the train. The poor are bound to the back, where they are crammed in tight quarters, eating “protein bars” made of stuff that makes hot dog ingredients sound delicious.
