Thread: Idiocracy

  1. #1

    Default Idiocracy

    Anyone seen this film? I watched it for the first time this past weekend, and instantly billed it as one of the greatest acts of genius that I've seen in film.

    Yes, the theme is funny, but what a profound and almost frightening statement on the dumbing down of our culture!

    Sounds like some good satire. I had not heard of it. I was laughing just reading a description of some of the scenes here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiocracy.

    On a similar theme, but not so satirical, I really enjoyed Susan Jacoby's recent book "The Age of American Unreason" (although it has its critics).

    This is also an example of the subtle humor in the film.

    There are some funny moments in the movie. What is scary is that there are people that actually act like that in this country.

    That's where the genius in it lies! The show, "Ow, My Balls!" is Jackass!

    Idiocracy is very funny. Pretty much everything Mike Judge does is great, and has provided the source for my TWT name.

    The first time I watched this movie it just annoyed me. However, when I was overseas working it was on HBO all the time so I watched it a few more times and this time caught more of what they were saying.
