Southland Tales ★★★

It's admittedly a problem that the central plotline - about an amnesiac action star whose hackneyed screenplay may or may not be coming true - is the least interesting thread here, but as a piece of pop prophecy you could do far worse than "Southland Tales." What seemed like an exaggerated pantomime of Bush Era paranoia in 2007 now reads as a strangely prescient rendering of our current political divide. And it's pretty funny too.
