Now, more than ever, it probably feels like we’re living in a sci-fi movie. A pandemic has spread across the planet, killing thousands, while governments have taken varying measure to try to contain it (while, to varying levels either taking care of or ignoring their own citizens). Meanwhile, a few heroes — doctors, food service workers, et cetera — are doing whatever they can to save humanity. You literally can’t make this stuff up.
In these precarious times, perhaps it’s best to explore the dystopian warnings of the past in the hopes of finding solutions for this terrible present. And if that doesn’t work, at least a little bit of escapism would be nice. The best sci-fi movies of our generation can help you with that.
