Movie Info

Our modern world through a 1930's lens.... Future '38 is a "lost" classic film from 1938, recently rediscovered in a Hollywood attic! (That's our story and were sticking to it). Filmed in blazing early Technicolor, it's the story of a man who must save the world by travelling to the future. All the way to 2015. And man, did those old-timey filmmakers get a lot right.

Critic Reviews for Future '38

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

Future '38 can suffer at times from kitsch overkill, even if the playful tone and committed cast makes it a fairly pleasant romp to sit through.

It's an extremely clever comedy riff on cinematic history that should especially please the film buffs among us.

The film's abundance of charm plays into its absurdity, owning it in a way that ensures its lack of self-seriousness isn't misconstrued as a lack of respect for the audience.

As puckishly inventive as it is deliriously cheesy [it'a] perfect puntastic piffle of an entertainment that refuses to take anything seriously, but that still comes through with an enigmatic twist for the ages.

Future '38 is a memorable adventure which perfectly reflects our time, as well as reminisces about the films and sensibilities of the past.

December 14, 2017 | Full Review…

A swell idea harnessed to leaden style and execution, sci-fi comedy Future '38 doesn't take off.
