Born in Flames ★★★★

No, but seriously: can dialectics break bricks? As compelling a master class in revolutionary theory as I've seen, a dystopian utopia, a stream-of-consciousness so freeform it feels more like flipping channels than anything that could be consciously edited, like it's the filmic version of Kerouac writing on endless scrolls of paper, but of course that's an illusion. Like freedom, like equality, like justice. There's plenty to drive people mad in this movie, especially if you're allergic to bad acting, but for me it's mostly just flat out overwhelming.
