  2. captainfez's rating of the film California City

    This new instalment of the Fallout franchise sucks.

  3. findfilm's rating of the film California City

    A bright sunlit portrait of neo-apocalyptic rural America where our protagonist routinely plies his trade of dispensing insecticide. The characters he encounters are so real it feels like a documentary but the nostalgia of his lost love provides a dramatic counterpoint. Mad Max imagery is also perfectly conceived and the sparse soundtrack is equally haunting. A stunning film that is as stark as it is foreboding.

  4. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film California City

    Think Schizopolis, set in a post-Big Short world, with a dash of Ballard, Baudrillard, and Mad Max.

  5. Daniel's rating of the film California City

    The film didn't hook me initially, but as it progresses there is some really clever reframing that begins to happen. It moves away from what seemed to be a lazy apocalyptic storyline and becomes something else entirely more meditative and enjoyable.

  6. tristanetyseut's rating of the film California City

    Great movie on post crisis California. I liked this lonely walk in suburban ruins, interspersed with nostalgic flashbacks on the ex girlfriend. I loved a suburban girl too.

  7. OrfgenT's rating of the film California City

    Ein hervorragender, intensiver und dabei sehr komplexer und beunruhigender Film. Tolle Regie, faszinierende Orte und Menschen/Figuren, die von Verlorenheit, Einsamkeit, Verlassenheit erzählen. / An excellent, complex, intensive and creepy film. Great direction, fascinating places and people/figures who tell about loneliness and desertedness.

  8. Stefan Drees's rating of the film California City

    A deep insight into the consequences of a thoughtless and irresponsible lifestyle, but also - through the narrator - into the American self-conception. Something like: "Take off and let the ruins of your life behind you, no matter what others have to do to cope with them."
