Southland Tales ★★★★

Southland Tales is still a jumbled mess of a film; it only starts to feel like a movie with structure and rhythm about halfway through its 2 and 1/2 hour running time. But in the 10+ years since the film was released, it’s become increasingly less bizarre and more prescient. The end of the world occurring due to corporate destruction of the environment, political extremism and clueless celebrities seemed like a Philip K Dick-lite lark a decade ago, but now seems like it could happen tomorrow.
