Things to Come Reviews

Matthew Sorrento
Film International

As troublesome as Wells' philosophy may be, especially his faith in technocracy, Things certainly helped urge the medium into a new era - another Nation's Birth of artistry, and ignorance.

(Wells) never imagined our 21st century gadgets would be so tiny; pocket-sized streaming devices for a population more interested in gazing at navels than at stars.

Its lecture-dialogue stilted and ideas simplistic, 'Things to Come' is nevertheless a worthy visual experience.

Essential viewing today for anyone interested in the history of celluloid science fiction, but general audiences will most likely find it to be dull.

Things to Come is an unusual picture, a fantasy, if you will, with overtones of the Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon comic strips. But it is, as well, a picture with ideas which have been expressed dramatically and with visual fascination.

Spookily prescient in many of its ideas, this is fascinating whilst being a little clumsy and dated, even for its time.

In the realm of 'prophetic science fiction', it is a genre landmark.

Wells' heart must have sunk as audiences avoided his impassioned and idealistic -- yet dour and didactic -- cri de coeur.

At once dated and weirdly modern, this may not be the film Wells wanted it to be, but it's still more ambitious and impressive than most fantasy cinema of the past 30 years.
