The future is not what it used to be. No march toward space-age utopias, no super-technological fascist states. Just utter destruction and debased, near-extinct humanity. Hollywood is having a fiesta profiting off all this media-fueled Apocalyptic fetish (2012, The Road) and if the world really is on the verge of a meltdown, I can’t even begin to comment on how fascinating and depressing it is that we moviegoers can’t get enough of seeing it before it even happens. The Book of Eli (2010) isn’t just any post-apocalypse film, mostly because it’s a mash-up of every apocalpyse film (and done surprisingly well). Name one–I’m sure you’ll find a scene in Eli that was damn near bitten from it.
