    Its one of my favorite films. A well made tale with a message of how mass media shapes everyone's perceptions of life.

    i was expecting a comedy or a scifi story which was how it was represented when it first opened, but that movie is neither of those. instead it seemed to be a shallow, negative evaluation of modern life as related by "the beautiful, special people of LA". Since I am neither beautiful or special, i was unable to relate.

    btw, i always found Egbert's reviews contrived: if anyone ever needs a visual explanation of "politically correct" they need only watch any of his reviews of movies featuring black female actresses.
