Storyline

Welcome to Terminal City, a decaying world where the citizens wallow amidst a mind-boggling profusion of discarded consumer goods; a ruthless world where television is exploited to its fullest to sell yet more needless junk to eager consumers; a bewildering land where the unreal is real and the real, unreal. Alex Stevens is hurled into this bedlam where he finds himself pitted against the maniacal Ross Gilmore, Mayor of Terminal City, and the evil Bruce Coddle, agent of Gilmore's Social Peace Enforcement Unit. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Excellent! Why can't I find this now?
3 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is excellent. Funny political satire for the whole family to enjoy. Very hard to come by these days. The soundtrack was also very good. DOA, Nomeansno, Jello Biafra, Gerry Hannah (of the squamish five and The Subhumans). Several excellent Canadian actors appeared here that also appear in Canadian films of note such as highway 61. This comment is more of a jumble of warm thoughts this movie brings rushing to my head than it is a review. Good movie and a nice piece of punk rock history to boot. The Jello Biafra team ups with DOA and Nomeansno were probably a direct result of time spent together on this film set. If you get this chance give this movie a try. Thanks for your time. The last scream of missing neighbours.
