Southland Tales. I just watched it today... It is weird, to say the least. Definitely worth the watch, IMO. Seen it yet?


Movie Trailer


Plot

El Paso and Abilene, Texas have fallen victim to twin nuclear attacks on July 4, 2005 – a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions which sent America into war. The Patriot Act has been upgraded to a new agency known as US-IDENT, which keeps constant tabs on citizens – even to the extent of censoring the internet and using fingerprints in order to access computers and bank accounts. In order to be able to respond to a newfound fuel shortage, the German company Treer designs a generator of inexhaustible energy which is propelled by ocean currents, entitled "Fluid Karma." Unbeknownst to them, the generators alter the currents and cause the Earth to spiral out of control through space, ripping holes in the fabric of space and time.

In Los Angeles, a city on the brink of chaos, we follow the criss-crossed destinies of Boxer Santaros, an action film actor stricken with amnesia; Krysta Now , ex-porn star in the midst of reconverting; and twin brothers Roland and Ronald Taverner, whose destinies – on one evening – become intertwined with that of all mankind.

Yeah, the text was from Wikipedia. I wouldn't have watched it based on that.


I'll tell you right now, it is obvious that it was the same writer as donnie darko. You'll understand after you watch it. Let's just say... there are certain obvious obsessions at play in both.

I liked this comment on youtube about it...

I just watched this movie. My head, ass, and penis exploded one after another. This is where movies need too go people. Ideas and thoughts and have us think. Americans need too think.


Good quote, but funny how he spelled "too"

I was able to watch that movie a few days ago, and I thought it was great. Good star list, good story, and right up my alley. I'll be picking up that dvd later. Nice find.
