User Reviews

 
Excellent view of a dystopian future
5 April 2020 | by vovers1See all my reviews

I can't stop thinking how realistic is this view of the future of a trickle down world, hiding behind the cloaks of computerised and anonymous social systems. Well worth watching, a social commentary wrapped up in a scifi blanket. With humanity struggling and failing to define itself.
