Equilibrium is a 2002 science fiction film that was poorly received and underviewed, largely seen as an also-ran to 1999’s The Matrix, which set the tone and style of cyberpunk thrillers to follow. Equilibrium is unjustly forgotten, a sleeper non-hit that deserves revisiting; a thoughtful and condensed statement on huge volumes of preceding dystopian literature and cinema.
Equilibrium plays to the strength of film as a medium in its ability to succinctly put salient points into character narratives that otherwise require full-length novels and academic treatises.

And here I thought I was the only person in America who saw this gem! Great article and interesting take. The way the left has bastardized dystopian literary warnings is nothing short of amazing. They have entire generations of morons honestly believing that some right-wing authoritarian dictatorship with repressive and murderous tactics is right around corner. Despite over a century of government overreach from the opposite direction, they still see The Handmaid’s Tale lurking behind every shadow. Dipshits.
