Let’s face it. The world is a pretty shitty place to live right now. Climate change, impending wars and societies that are so split down the middle that you feel they could collapse in on themselves at any minute. So why not watch a couple of films that could put some of that melancholy into perspective?
First up is Lauren’s choice, with Mike Judge’s allegorical smackdown, Idiocracy starring Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolf and Terry Crews. Jordan follows that with Sidney Lumet’s 1957 classical depiction of systemic racism, 12 Angry Men.
