Trivia

The "Verticle Self-Management Center" is an allegory for society, with those at the top provided the best of everything and a willingness to consume far more than necessary at the expense of those below, while those at the lowest levels of society must suffer and go without. This can apply to society within a country or the worldwide society of first world to third world countries. It also attempts to show this is the case whether there is a capitalist or socialist economy. In either case, those with the majority of the power generally take what they want. See more »

Tense

The movie was really tense. I like the scenario. But I don't get why they made such a bad end for such a good movie.
