Review of Children of Men (2006)

Moving picture, 109 minutes

Technically brilliant. As with The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) I can’t see why infertility would lead to this manner of dystopia. Compare Last and First Men: A Story of the Near and Far Future (1930), where it is the last human being ever born who delivers the famous conclusion that “It is very good to have been man”.
