Slide 1 of 10
A Scanner Darkly (2006) vs. The Postman (1997)
The year: 2013
The similarities: Scary ruling entities that govern by fear
The differences: Basically everything else. Pick your poison: Drug-fueled, technologically advanced Orwellian nightmare or bleak, desolate post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Our pick: We’d rather just keep living in the actual 2013, which has elements of both.
