Southland Tales

Southland Tales ★★★★½

[Cannes Cut]

Three years ago, when I last watched this, I wasn’t as politically-aware or cinematically patient, I guess, because watching this now feels like watching a video of an oracle correctly predicting the future. Civilisation has become too much, all the time, a constant maelstrom of misinformation and misdirection conspiring to keep the top and bottom as far away from each other as possible. Everyone is connected by screens in this movie, but the only ones actually speaking truth to each other are actors who are acting off camera.
