83. CODE 46
dir. Michael Winterbottom
world premiere 2003
U.S. release 2004
Because it furnishes one of the few sci-fi glimpses of the future that feels fully and plausibly realized,
despite having a tenth of the budget this genre usually exploits. That wealth of detail is even more suggested than it is
directly depicted, so the story has the fertile, impacted, kernelish feel of a top-drawer novella.
