Children of Men
http://imdb.com/title/tt0206634/

Just saw this flick. WOW.

There is more happening in the background in this movie than I can explain. I wish I had a PAUSE button in the theatre, to be able to analyze each frame, as there were lots of "messages" (graffitti, and advertising etc...) and also EXPLAIN the subleties to the morons in the audience who were taking everything at face value.

A very good rendition of the direction we are heading in.

They touched on a few topics like "False flag terrorism", and what I call a "double-double cross", but I'm sure it went right over the heads of most of the audience.

"... the government is behind the bombings... to keep the fear alive..."

There were quite a few "hidden" in plain view messages, if you were fast enough to catch them. I'm sure this one will warrant a few more views on DVD to catch all of the little gems.

One of the cleverest touches is the ancient, manky sweatshirt Theo wears -advertising the London Olympics of 2012. To us, it is a symbol of London's last-ever demonstration of untroubled national rejoicing, when this country was awarded the Games, before that mood was cruelly shattered by the 7/7 bombings. Now London 2012 is Theo's veteran-badge of despair, and a memento of his lost career in political dissent.


This film is disturbing. And that's the good news. Maybe a few more people will wake up after seeing this.

The director also made this film, which I highly recommend (if you are into movies of "non-typical" storylines.
