The Israeli Sci-Fi/Cold War Masterpiece
13 June 2011 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

{Hard to believe if you read on, but this review actually does NOT contain any plot spoilers...except that it would be much more fun to know nothing of this film and dive right in if you are the adventurous sort - in which case stop reading, buy a ticket, and take the ride. Incidentally "tickets" aren't too hard to find with a little looking.}

This film follows the adventures of a shiny jump-suited, telekinetic stranger from a strange land in his time-traveling disco chamber from where he guides the leaders of the world towards nuclear Armageddon so that mankind might be saved. Wait, no, it's about the evil Japanese corporation that has developed karate robots to demonstrate their hypno-controller with which they will dictate the fate of mankind. No, wait...what's happening? Suddenly this is a near slapstick political farce that is too broad for Woody Allen yet hinting at dark undercurrents of unpopular ideology...wait...did this just have hardcore sex in it? that an apocalyptic new-wave Israeli rock band somehow blending punk with the BeeGees for the sake of all mankind? head hurts...

All that and more await you in Message From the Future! This film is ten pounds of movie in a five pound bag!

What's it about? What's it about indeed.
