View from the Tank: Children of Men (2006) - Commentary by Slavoj Zizek
I saw this film back in 2007, but I thought it worthwhile to post about it now. I'm in complete agreement with Zizek: this really was one of the greatest films I've seen in the last decade. The attention to detail -- especially in the backgrounds, as Zizek discusses -- is overwhelming. The scenes in the immigration camp in particular are some of the most terrifying and fantastic film scenes I can remember watching.
Speaking of images of dystopian futures, I just found out that Ridley Scott is signed on with Leonardo DiCaprio to direct an adaptation of Brave New World
