Sharp, satirical, chilling. And utterly hilarious.,
This review is from: Idiocracy [DVD] (DVD)
This is the best film I've seen in a long time, and it's surely destined for cult status.
It presents a view of the future which is totally opposite from the conventional hi-tech Utopian vision. The world's population consists entirely of puerile idiots who haven't a clue about anything. The attention to detail in the way the moronic goings-on are depicted is quite incredible - kind of reminded me of the Fifth Element in some respects.
The cinematography is also rather beautiful in a melancholic way, even though the world it's portraying is poisonous, artificial and utterly unwholesome. The "garbage avalanche" scene is awesome.
Highly recommended. I rented this at the weekend and have had to purchase it immediately - I can see myself watching this over and over.
