Frank Yan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Though the presentation of violence and sex is not as explicit and as dense as in Natasha, make no mistake that Degeneration is more hardcore. Through the 6-hour runtime, the audience falls into the abyss of chaos with the institution on the screen. The authoritarianism created a monster that even itself cannot control. Total destruction is thus inevitable. If Natasha is merely a reenactment of the history, Degeneration is both a fable and a prophecy.
