Things to Come

16 Jun

Filmed in 1936, based on H.G. Wells book The Shape of Things To Come – this movie has barely aged in its articulate clarity of the nature of war and progress, screenplay by H.G. Wells.

The story of a hundred year war that starts in 1940 and lasts so long no one remembers why it began. After a plague kills most of the society, small groups survive and finally reconnect to rebuild, until it grows so prosperous a new uprising begins again progress, claiming it is what starts wars in the first place.
