Raw, black satire of didactic films and overly optimistic utopian progress films associated with vintage newsreels of the mid 20th century. Edited in with the super cheerful female 'official narration' are dramatic tableaux of intense emotional pain suffered by individuals who still maintain a semblance of humanity. This handful of individuals resist or never fully adjust to the artificial and soporific lifestyle instituted and promoted by the 'future' society's power bosses- the power mad and sadistic Bozos, characterized as sleazy clowns.
Difficult to categorize...it's too real for science fiction, the humor is too black to call it a comedy.
Perhaps it can be considered a social mockumentary...
Highly recommended and thought provoking.
