  • The political message was great, the story was so so

    8.0
    Devastating "Matrix" and "V for Vendetta" style political allegory about mass indoctrination vs. individual liberation.



    The Editor: Is a slave a slave if he doesn't know he's enslaved?

    The Doctor: Yes.



    The Editor: Create a climate of fear and it's easy to keep the borders closed. It's just a matter of emphasis. The right word in the right broadcast repeated often enough can destabilize an economy, invent an enemy, change a vote.



    This is not about "the future." This is about now. This is about us. This is about Bush/Obama's post-9/11 Amerika.



    Notice how opposition to the enslavement comes from anarchists? Now how great is that?



    The political message was great, the story only so so.
