According to Snarkerati the films below are the greatest dystopian films ever made. I have put the films I have seen in bold (and I’ve seen a few!) – how many have you seen? My number one is pretty predictable… yep, it’s Bladerunner. I also have a soft spot for Strange Days – a brief Ralph Fiennes infatuation, what can I say. Still hate The Matrix though.
