Theatrical report

Wow, I was really moved by this film. Not what I expected at all. In the lead up to it, I couldn't decide between two films, this one and, The wrong man. In the end, I just randomly picked this. I had hoped to feel some level of confidence with my choice but since I had received mixed opinions, including "the most beautiful film I have ever seen..." from the redhead at the video store. The blond said, "I hated it", and the Director of Intelligence suggested it might be "surprisingly good". Good is one word I would use. In conjunction with "deeply moving" and "sad".

This film really bothered me, it got into my soul, because I could really see this happening in real life, and what's more is that I don't think it's so much fiction as it is a distinct possibility. The largest problem that I have with either post-apocalyptic or near apocalyptic films, is that they tend to be too far-fetched, and way to far into the future, whereas this film puts what's already happening to the world, advances it a couple of decades, and voilà.
