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>

One word: Brilliant
23 March 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film exposes TV and the political connection in brutal detail. It is hyper-reality to the extreme & like the end credits say, "Any relation to real life is because that's just the way it is" or at least something along those lines. I just wish that it was available to purchase so I could add it to my collection.
