For 12 hours on this night, an experiment runs on Staten Island where all laws are suspended and citizens are encouraged and even paid to participate in the First Purge, which is billed as a necessary way to reduce crime and other societal ills.
The fourth film in the Purge franchise uses the current political environment to craft a truly horrifying vision not of some dystopian future but of the disconcerting present. It’s violent and nearly hopeless.
A new political party has risen to power, The New Founding Fathers, who have convinced Americans that the way to reduce crime is to sanction it for one night. This is experiment is one that must succeed for the Party to claim a win, and they will do so at any cost. The site selected for the First Purge centers on poor communities of color.
Nya and Isaiah are siblings living in the projects and trying to survive through the threats of living in a place of desperation. Nya, played by Lex Scott Davis, takes on the role of activist leading some community members to protest the purge experiment. It’s a losing battle as the Party is paying people $5000 just to stay on the island for the experiment. It also incentivizes “participation” in the purge by promising more money for acts of violence monitored by highly creepy light up camera contact lenses. Dmitri (Y’lan Noel) fills the complicated role of local drug lord and hero who both poisons the community as well as supports it.
The ideology that supports the trial of The First Purge is based upon the idea that people need to release their negative feelings in violence. When the risk of punishment is lifted, the expectation is that people will race to have their chance to purge. As it becomes clear that this will not happen (and perhaps that people function a bit higher than this base level) the Party calls in hordes of foreign mercenaries to get inject the violence the experiment needs to succeed and take the horror nationwide. These paid purgers come in Alt-Right khakis and white polos, Klan sheets and frightening Nazi garb (like a latex trench coat). There are plenty of politically charged scenes in the film including a black man on a sports field surrounded by blinged out police officers wielding batons, a sewer dwelling pussy-grabber, and an image of Nya and Isaiah standing in front of a poster of the American flag with a pair of hands in chains painted over it.
Nya and Dmitri are strong heroes in the film: Nya staying behind with the goal of saving as many people as possible without regard for herself; and Dmitri in all out action hero mode slaughtering Nazis-for-hire to get to Nya.
Part horror, part action movie, The First Purge is all politics with searing commentary on everyone. The film’s message might be to look to marginalized communities for advice on how to resist and survive in these dark days but to survive and resist at all costs. By the way, it’s scary as hell.
