Someone commented about how many more times must films like this be made. My answer is, as many more times as is necessary to illustrate the point that the people in the film not only created victims but are also victims themselves. Descriptions of politicians, government and a mirrored society are apparent and analogous to current situations. Some may ask why a film like this one that is so similar to others that are already out there must be made over and over again. The film puts a mirror to society and attempts to make us question ourselves and our actions. And films like this will continue to be made until those questions can be answered, and as of yet the only response is either silence or blame. I sincerely hope that this genre of film gets so old that it becomes a part of history that is no longer applicable.
