Silly tired ass clichéd manufactured mechanism. A series of words forced together to be passed off as dialog in a boring meaningless movie. Preaching self-absorbed--Identity Politics is bullsh*t, identity is an illusion, that's a biological fact--anyways this movie is a product of sad wishful thinking. The 1990's as awesome as the grunge scene was, was a decade built around false hope. Poetic Justice is the perfect metaphor for the 90's failings, desperate clinging to hope rather than actually doing something-catch phrased based reasoning- unfailing faith in people being able to be more than just sh*t throwing apes. At least the 90's gave us Pavement- maybe someone's gonna save me my heart is made of gravy.
