May 2002

A cool site that ranks "Futurist" movies based on three criteria: plausibility, entertainment, and futurism. A Boy and His Dog, Planet of the Apes, and Sleeper are ranked too low; Gattaca is ranked way too high; The Boys from Brazil at #12 is about right. (It features one of my all-time favorite movie lines. Larry O. playing Simon Wiesenthal, says in this amazing, schmaltzy Austrio-German accent: "I may leef here emp-ty-hand-ed, but you . . . you are not goink anyVHERE!")
