Basic in tone, cartoony in animation, but it has a crude anger to it that does work to a point
24 May 2015 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Prole-514 works in a cleaning job in an area of the city populated the "B's" – a perfect white race who have everything and live a life of happiness, beauty and freedom. There is no way into this society apart from being drawn in a lottery to join. While 514 longs for this life, and hates his current, a moment of connection is made with his current world, although the promise of so much better remains.

Set in a dystopian future where the haves have it all, and the have- nots, well, don't, this is a story that is not unfamiliar in terms of the message it brings with it. In case the message is not clear enough either, the characters are divided by color with the poor black and the rich white; on top of this we have celebrity, sexually-heavy videos and adverts, and many other aspects which seems a bit like tick-boxes. In terms of where it goes as a plot, it does borrow heavily from many other sources, and at the same time feels like it is struggling to find its own voice. The animation is also very crude in its detail and in its meaning – everything is very black and white (literally) and it has an odd cartoon style look to much of it.

All of this does rather limit it, but in a way this blunt tool has just about enough frustration and crude anger behind it, that it does make it watchable for this aspect of it. I do not pretend it is a good film speaking generally, or that it really brings much to the table, but there is something in the crudity of its anger that I found quite engaging for all its simplicity.
