satirical jump into future dystopia.
Coming off like a showreel for an old school Paul Verhoeven sci-fi epic, K-Michel Parandi’s From the Future with Love is a satirical jump into future dystopia—a world where society’s policemen only provide protection if you’ve paid for it. It’s a fantastic premise, and fortunately, the short strings together a series of vignettes that really explore it in compelling ways. Ultimately, the movie’s allegorical sci-fi roots aren’t subtle, but really they’re not meant to be. This is a showpiece for great, gritty science fiction ideas, bolstered by top-notch production design and impressive visual effects.
