Making the world weirder... One podcast at a timE
Children of Men (2006) is one of the finest dystopian future movies ever committed to film… that no one seems to remember. Which is weird, because it has one of Clive Owen’s best hangdog performances, and a supporting cast (Julianne Moore, Michael Caine & Chiwetel Ejiofor) that most movies would kill for. Plus, Alfonso Cuarón directed some of the most amazing “single-shot” action sequences of all time in what should have been a sure-fire classic of speculative fiction. Instead, this very prescient story about the world falling apart at the seams came and went with a shrug from most. Which is a damn shame, because this movie packs a real wallop. Do yourself a favor and watch it, then listen to this very special podcast!
