  1. There's heavy influence from the "Brave New World" brand of dystopian fantasy, but engaging performances and a stylized visual approach lend it originality.
  2. Hartley's soft spot for offbeat romances is trumped by irony and sloganeering dialogue.
  3. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler

    Unconvincingly attempts to update the futurist dystopian traditions of Orwell, Huxley and William Gibson.
  4. 50
    Hartley's score is lovely and he makes excellent use of digital video, but the film's paucity of provocative ideas is its undoing.
  5. As satire, it doesn't add up -- but it's an admirable, if dull, experiment.
  6. Reviewed by: Ed Halter

    A monotonous, unenlightening experience.
