Captivating and incredibly compelling look at a subculture that's been around since the 60's and somehow remains "underground." Also serves as a melancholy look at the successes of an oppressed group of people... Particularly poignant given the recent gay marriage advances.
A bit sad but also filled with hilarious characters and absolute perseverance.
If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.
Must see for anyone. Period.
I saw this alone so there was no moment to converse openly about the implications of the Singularity and what it means to be conscious and "alive" - worthwhile topics evoked by this.
Rather amazing CG and great performances all around. I read a lot of reviews having issue with the machine being female and, thus, automatically a fetish object... Not so sure about that myself. It may say more about the reviewer than the film implies. Tho I guess that's another topic best wrestled when viewed with others.
