    I think this movie portraits one of the most realistic futures that ever made in history of cinema industry. No flying cars, laser guns, advanced ai, gigantic spacecrafts but the awful tomorrow that we might leave to our children as a legacy. 5 years ago

    What makes the movie hard to watch is the MacGuffin. Because while you kind of know that you aren't supposed to think about the Human Project. That the movie is really about the journey, and not the reason to go there. But then again, you know, I'd like to know more about this dystopia: how did Britain become the only country of relative order? Was there a war? How did that play out? It's all very curious to me.

    And it isn't completely irrelevant to the plot. Maybe the overall big picture of their times explains why there's so many dogs and cats. You want to see the big dystopia reflected in the small details. Rather than guess together a vague picture of the dystopia, you want to see how the overall structure of their dystopian world breaks down into minutiae.

    Good movie, still.
