Serge's Review of Things to Come
Things to Come(1936)
Very ambitious epic futuristic story that goes very far in the future. Even 2036, still the future. Credible with lots of decent effects. However, the whole timeline ressemble a lot the fall of the roman empire and the dark ages with warlords. Then we have a society that becomes advanced enough to overcome the small warlords, followed by a long period of peace. Then people become populists again, reject advances and science and war is about to restart. We have all this in a few years just listening to the news nowaday. This film is nice but too simplistic for our earth.
