Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Children of Men

The world as we know it is beginning to look dangerously close to the one depicted here; but with its backdrop of militant-based terrorism, civil disobedience, refugee crisis & general post-millennial tension, the film always did have its finger squarely on the pulse. Children of Men now looks like the masterpiece it always was; bold, prescient, intelligent & profoundly moving; a perfect combination of content& form.
