Critics reviews

How prophetic can we expect a near-future satire on 24-hr news and politics to be, given that just a few years later saw “the end of history,” an event that sent the United States spiraling into clinical insanity and ushered in a new and far more dangerous world? Well, the weird thing is, Dante’s film, written by documantarist Martyn Burke, seems to have come true in almost every key particular. Watching it today is a jaw-dropping experience, far more so than it was when the piece was new.
