Sotto-voce futurism, definitely not made by the usual nitwits.
2 September 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Unjustifiably ignored sci-fi indie is a lovingly handled little gem, and provides one of cinema's less trenchant visions of post-apocalyptic Earth.

Glen and Randa are young lovers, born years after the nuclear decimation of worldwide civilization. The nth-generation of a handful of survivors are tribal, searching daily for life's most basic essentials. Glen has seen a tattered Wonder Woman comic book, and believes that the fictional city of Metropolis in its pages does, indeed, exist. With his curiosity piqued, he and pregnant Randa embark on a journey to find it.

Not an action-packed film by any stretch of the imagination, GLEN AND RANDA is an otherwise very solemn, thoughtful film which won't be appealing to everyone, but will leave some to chafe inwardly. I was personally quite moved by it, and would recommend it without hesitation to anyone looking for a unique film born miles away from the questionable influence of Tinseltown.

6.5/10
