Meh. The funny parts are in the trailer. Skip it.
Breathtaking. The best film I've seen all year. Hillary Swank breaks my heart. The bleakness of life juxtaposed against the irresistable desire to find meaning or god on earth are shown plainly here and it's hard to watch but TLJ's "fuck you" to the universe almost make you get a little faith back. A bleak couple of hours, but well worth it.
Spoiler Alert. Netflix Canada has added this piece o' crap to their lame Canadian lineup (we don't get the good stuff you get in the states). It's a very boring soap opera with guys dressed in motorcycle suits and pointy leather hats as the aliens overlain with canned tinkly piano and sobbing cellos soundtrack. I'll save you an hour of your time. Everyone dies in the end. boo hoo. Two of the 3 actors pictured on the poster don't appear in the film, and the name was changed to Alienate from Alienated, probably because the rights were sold on the condition that it have no ties to the studio that made it.
Excellent presentation of the concept of how progress may be our undoing. For a further exploration of Ronald Wright's "A Short History of Progress", upon which this film is based, look up CBC's audio series of that name, presented on the show "Ideas". This film is essential viewing for parents and their children, and for anyone with an open mind.
Bleak, but excellent. Ignore the reviewers that pan this film. It is one of the most perfectly crafted representations of the human condition I have ever seen.
