    Incredible, hilarious, hopeful, and depressing Distopian film. It's been one of my favorites for years. The zany sense of humor is superb. Sadly, I think this film is even more apt now than it was in 1985. We haven't improved our society and culture at all. 10 years 2 months ago

    1984 meets Monty Python meets Wallace and Gromit. Excellent pacing, great balance between comedy and drama. As far as dystopian films go, this is quite uplifting. 8 years 10 months ago
