I can't help but give this four stars. It rocked. I was actually a little nervous to watch this movie for a long time having been described its contents. I finally saw it around 20 and I was blown away.

I believe there is a real possibility of our society falling into the world depicted in the movie. Some people could argue that we're already there.
