How I learned to stop worrying and love the Apocalypse, part 1: A Boy and his Dog (1975)

A boy and his dog poster

So, with apologies to Wolf, who’s already done some of these films, it’s time to launch a new open-ended series. This one will be all about the end of the world and the dystopian mess left behind for the poor survivors to deal with. First up, is the Harlan Ellison penned (and later disavowed) 1975 classic A Boy and his Dog. I’m depressed to say this is billed as “a rather kinky tale of survival”, something that is inaccurate, misleading and gives a big hint as to why Ellison had such a downer on the film.

Contains serious weirdness and spoilers below. I’m not joking at all about the spoiler here- it’s enormous, but impossible to talk about the film without addressing. 

Goddamnit, I am totally sick and tired of reviewing rapey films. I seem to have been on a bloody run of them at the moment and was completely disappointed to discover that A Boy and his Dog is yet another film with rape as a central plot point. At the very least, this film is wide open to accusations of flagrant misogyny. The problem with the above is that it clouds the opinion on what is a very good film, and a landmark of the entire genre.

A boy and his dog 1

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and Vic’s got the horn

Meet Vic (Don Johnson). Vic is (apparently) 15, and a lone nomad in a scorched earth. With only his dog, Blood, for company, Vic searches the charred landscape for the two things that keep him going: women to rape and food. Blood, thankfully, is telepathic and can not only converse with Vic, but can also sense when there are either groups of raiders to hide from/ fight or isolated women to molest. This is a nasty, co-dependent relationship, and probably one best not dwelt on, although Blood does keep it sweet holding out the carrot of a mythical place called Over the Hill that they could, in theory make it to. Into their pretty miserable existence comes Quilla June (Susanne Benton), a refugee from somewhere called “Downunder”.

Initially repelling Vic’s rapey advances, she eventually succumbs to some grubby sex, although Blood remains consistently untrusting of her. Soon enough, the pooch’s judgement is proven sound when she ups and buggers off home again. Blood begs Vic not to follow her, as he’s incapable of foraging food as a by product of his telepathy, and eventually resigns himself to waiting for Vic at the pit opening.

What's that boy? Woman alone stuck in bunker? I'll get right on that.

What’s that boy? Lone, unprotected woman stuck in bunker? I’ll get right on that.

Vic follows Quilla June down beneath the wasteland, and is initially pleased to discover that he’s a hero in a fucked up 50’s version of Topeka existing in a self-contained biosphere. He’s even more pleased to find out that they’ve got fertility problems and he’s the equivalent of Jack Hell with the magic love spuds to reinvigorate their tiring gene pool. He’s less chuffed to find out that Quilla June was a honey trap, and he’s actually to be wired to a table and given electro-stimulation to the junk to force ejaculation for their artificial insemination programme before being sent “away to the farm”, which is blatantly execution. Not to mention that he’s only got a maximum of 35 squirts to go.

So, Quilla June (complete in wedding dress), gives Vic a nasty dose of the facts of life, before busting him out for her ill-fated rebellion. Unsurprisingly, this goes completely tits up at the hands of an unstoppable robot redneck, and the two escape to the surface to find Blood loyally waiting up there for them. Quilla proclaims love for Vic (quite why, I’m not sure, but if I had to guess for some manipulative purposes based on her entire MO of the film), but Blood hasn’t eaten in too long, and if Vic’s going to survive in the wasteland, then, well, he needs the pooch. This is bad news for Quilla June, and the film ends with a happy, full Blood following Vic on their lonely trek and no sign of Quilla June. No need to spell it out, really, although Blood does, but more on this in a moment.

Helpful. Imagine if I were watching this film and only had to pay attention to the dialogue telling us this multiple times. How would I cope?

Imagine if I were watching this film and only had to pay attention to the dialogue telling us this multiple times. How would I cope?

This is a very, very strange film. No, lying poster, it’s not kinky in the slightest, but it is desperate and weird. If we were to try to work out who the villain is, we’d really struggle as at various stages of the film every single character seems to fit this role, bar Vic, and he’s a rapist. Quilla June, the honey trap, is the most obvious, but Blood also takes the mantle at several points. Not to mention the Topeka council and killer farming robot. Basically, this isn’t just the end of the world and humanity nearly extinct, but the end of the world, humanity nearly extinct, and what isn’t extinct consists of total fucking arseholes.

Tonally, it’s incredibly odd. We’re introduced to Vic when Blood sniffs out an isolated woman in a bunker. Vic goes down (against Blood’s wishes) to liberate her, and is miffed to find out that she’s been raped and mutilated. This leads to this charming exchange between our hero and his pooch, which I’m highlighting for when I talk about the end:

Vic: Hell! They didn’t have to cut her! She could have been used two or three more times!

Blood: Ah, war is hell.

Even in a post apocalyptic wasteland, when a dog's got to go, a dog's got to go.

Even in a post apocalyptic wasteland, when a dog’s got to go, a dog’s got to go.

Vic misses the sarcasm in Blood’s response, as he’s clearly thinking with his penis, but the loyal pooch consoles him with a smutty limerick to keep his pecker up. Cue alarmingly happy theme music. The bickering between the two for the entirety of the first third of the film is based wholly on Vic’s case of blue balls and his overwhelming desire to find a woman to rape. Yet, Johnson is charming in the role and the dialogue feels “light”- it’s clear that this is simply how you survive in 2024. I’m not justifying it, but after a while what they were actually arguing about stopped registering with me. While I’m sure we’re not meant to condone Vic’s actions (I hope, anyway), this is clearly normality for him and his pooch.

This isn’t where the weirdness stops, though. Once we get to Downunder, the film finds a whole extra gear of crazy to go to. Why they’ve turned their biodome into 50’s small town America is a total mystery to me. maybe they want to hang on to a forgotten past that probably never existed in the first place. Even in this event, quite why they all slap on Geisha makeup is an even bigger mystery. Having said that, though, I do like the symmetry of serial rapist Vic being tied to a table and effectively raped over and over again. There feels like a nice sense of justice to this, and really, you can’t argue that he hasn’t had something nasty coming to him.

Vic didn't realise the Moonies lived underground.

Vic didn’t realise the Moonies lived underground.

Then there’s the character of Quilla June. Benson is exceptional in the role, but this is one odious villain/ victim. She’s sent to the surface by her dad as a honey trap- instantly setting him up as the big bad, but when she entraps Vic to bring him down, she flat-out tells him that she bought him down not for the good of the community, but for her own nefarious purposes. Even when she frees him, it’s so he can help her with the rebellion, and her declaration of love at the end isn’t real- she’s had little more than contempt for him for most of the film. Rather, it’s an attempt to force the walking hormone to pick a side, and offering up the one advantage that she unquestionably has over the dog. She’s a horrifying, manipulative, scheming shrew (insert joke about all women being like this here…) but even though this is obvious, you can’t say that she’s not the way she is for legitimate reasons. She’s trying to survive, and her actions are merely the female equivalent of Vic’s rapey hobby. And yet, it’s her that ends up in the pedigree chum tin.

This is, frankly, a film that everyone deserves to die in, which neatly brings me on to the finale. Yup, 1 out of 1 telepathic dogs prefer to eat Quilla June. To be fair to L.Q. Jones the director, this is straight from Ellison’s pen. What isn’t straight from Ellison’s award-winning novella is the altered final line of the film. The original line goes to Vic when he’s musing on what love is with that he now knows and it’s “between a boy and his dog”. This is incredibly bitter and bleak, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that it wouldn’t have worked in the film- just as the reappropriation of the final line of I am Legend doesn’t work in the Big Willie Style v crap CGI vampires mess. Instead, and in a film as consciously full of symmetry as this one, this does make sense, the final line goes to Blood with:

Well, I’d certainly say she had marvelous judgment, Albert, if not particularly good taste.

Yuck. This is monumentally misogynistic and tasteless, yet it’s completely appropriate to the film and mirrors almost perfectly the exchange between the two at the start. As the end is shot intentionally to look like the beginning with the two of them meandering off into a heat haze, and it’s said in the same sardonic tone by Tim McIntire (voicing Blood) as the smutty limerick, it’s clearly meant to be black humour.

Do you take this man to be an electrically stimulated sperm producer?

Do you take this man to be an electrically stimulated sperm producer?

Ellison, for the record, hated this alteration. This change to the dialogue changes the meaning and impact of the end, according to him, and it also allows the accusation of rampant misogyny- because, let’s face it, murdering a woman in a wedding dress who’s just proclaimed undying love to feed your dog isn’t the act of a third wave feminist. However, I can’t help but think that this interpretation actually misses the point. This isn’t, really, a misogynistic film (despite what I’ve said all the way through), it’s deeply, and hugely, misanthropic. We haven’t got a battle of the sexes here, rather what we do have is a cynical look at a future where survival is measured in terms of securing commodities. For Vic and Blood, men are a source of danger and ammunition, while women are useful solely for sexual release. Neither sex has any value beyond being instrumental for survival. It’s worth also pointing out that the situation is wholly reversed in Topeka- men are useful solely for their DNA.

Furthermore, Vic clearly isn’t happy about having had to turn Quilla June into pet food, but he’s had to as, when push comes to shove, the telepathic dog is not only his earliest and longest companion but (crucially) is more useful to his chances of survival. This, here, is the dreadful algebra of necessity (apologies to Terry Pratchett) writ large for our main character, and he’s sacrificed what may be his only shot at emotional satisfaction to keep the organism alive. Moreover, and I feel this is worth emphasising, Quilla June is a truly awful person, intent on exactly the same goal as Vic- survival at all costs.

Would you let these people organise your barn dance?

I’ve mentioned repeatedly that A Boy and his Dog is tonally odd, but I’d quickly like to go into this a bit more (if you’ve made it this far into a long-winded load of guff). The music can only really be described as “jaunty”, and is a key contributor the strangely upbeat weirdness. I’m semi-convinced that it’s a big part (along with Johnson’s charm) to why we can find the reprehensible scumbag Vic remotely likable. Then there’s the strangely childish names to the places: The Farm, Over the Hill, Downunder and so on- this feels very much like a kiddie’s nightmare of a post apocalyptic wasteland.

While A Boy and his Dog is blazingly misanthropic, it’s also incredibly rich with detail. This was my first viewing of it and I noticed so many different odd touches (Dessert recipes read out of the PA in Topeka, for example), that I bet it would reward many a rewatching. Overall, this is a really good, rich, well shot, well acted slice of end of the world mankind hatred, and one that I do recommend. If you can stomach it.

Quick summary:

  • Date: 2024
  • Extinction Event: Nuclear War that lasted a whopping 5 days (helpfully, we’re told this is World War 4)
  • Main Hazards: You’d think radiation poisoning, but no, it’s actually other people, including radiation altered mutants called “screamers”. Or a severe case of blue balls. Maybe starvation.
  • Chances of Survival of the Species: Pretty fucking grim, if I’m honest. The morlock weirdos stuck in the 1950’s underground may make it, if they can find a cure to the whole fertility problem,  but who the fuck wants to live like that? I don’t believe that Over the Hill exists.
  • Rating: Despite it all, I rather like this film, and am going in at a whopping 3 smiley faced mushroom clouds out of a possible 4. Just don’t make the sequels, please. Or remake it for that matter.

Aboyandhisdograting

Not a bad start to a series, this one, and I’m pleased to get it underway. I’ve got no real plans for where to continue here, and would rather stay off Wolf’s stamping ground where possible, so any suggestions Below the Line for films may be taken up- my only rule is I’m not doing repeated films with the same doomsday scenario- so no endless reviews of apocalypse after mankind has been overrun by a zombie horde, for example (although I will do one). I’m already lining up Rover after Droid helpfully pointed it out to me the other day.

Until next time,

Workshy cynic, given to posting reams of nonsense on the internet and watching films that have inexplicably got a piss poor reputation.

  1. Jarv says :

    Got a bit carried away here.

  2. tombando says :

    Do Damnation Alley! I liked the review, you liked the movie more than I did. Agreed on the strange tone throughout, one thing I remember is that grade z pornie you see 4 seconds of. Forgot this was an Ellison story.

    • Jarv says :

      See- I missed that. But I did notice the exploitation film- I’m told the porno is cut in to the other stuff.

      This is what I mean about multiple viewings of it.

      Damnation Alley is a good shout- what’s the extinction level event in it? Aside from Giant Scorpions.

      • Jarv says :

        I’ve looked it up- it’s nuclear war again. So out. I may do it for the Vault though.

        Did you know that they actually built the truck in it? And that it had a bigger budget than Star Wars?

      • Xiphos0311 says :

        I’ve seen the heavily armed recreational vehicle they built Damnation Alley up close and personal. I was like 8 and had seen the movie recently and my Mom and I were poking around the studios where there are(or were I don’t know anymore) a shit ton of prop houses. Looking behind one in a fenced off area was the RV. I went over the fence and got chased around by a fat security guard. Good times.

      • Jarv says :

        I’m impressed that it actually worked as well

      • Xiphos0311 says :

        looked kind of crappy in real life sad to say.

      • Jarv says :

        Disappointing. Should be awesome.

      • Xiphos0311 says :

        by the time I saw it it was probably a year after filming so it wasn’t cared for.

      • Jarv says :

        That’s not a surprise, really. Why bother building a road-worthy one then leaving it to go mouldy?

  3. Jarv says :

    While I’m thinking about this- these are the one’s I’m considering:

    1) Disease: Doomsday
    2) Undefined: Rover
    3) Undead Horde: haven’t decided.
    4) Capitalism: Soylent Green
    5) Water Shortage (hehe): Solar Babies
    6) Alien invasion: Undecided
    7) Totalitarian Regime: Logan’s Run

    I really want to do Technology, which should be Terminator territory, but I think I’ll go with Hardware for that one.

    Any more end of the world scenarios and accompanying film, greatly appreciated.

  4. Jarv says :

    There’s also Vampires- with Daybreakers, Stakeland and, er, Ultraviolet obvious candidates. and demons and whatnot too. But I’d probably have to do something like Wicked City for that, and I really don’t want to.

    and weird ones, like Ratmonsters- Mulberry St.

    Haven’t decided for Global Warming.

    • Jarv says :

      Ok- to update the list, having done some research- and none of these are certain:

      1) Rapture: The Apple
      2) Disease: still Doomsday as I’ve not thought of anything else
      3) Undead Horde: Undecided
      4) Capitalism: Still going with Soylent Green
      5) Totalitarianism: Logan’s Run
      6) Fertility: Children of Men
      7) Alien Invasion: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (although I am tempted to do The Faculty to be rude about Gingerfats)
      8) Water Shortage: Solar Babies

      All up for debate.

    • Xiphos0311 says :

      Global Warming = Ice age level extinction event so that one from a few years ago where the world goes cold in like 5 minutes.

  5. Xiphos0311 says :

    Good review for a flick I haven’t seen in like 30 years that I barely remember.

  6. Continentalop says :

    How about THE ROAD? I find it a disappointing movie, but would make an interesting review. Plus, the cause of the Apocalypse is vague and mysterious, so it could qualify as anything.

  7. Continentalop says :

    Also, DAY OF THE COMETS (Cometopocalypse), REIGN OF FIRE (Dragonopocalyse) and as a gift TERMINATOR (Robopocalypse).

    • Jarv says :

      Night of the comet?

      Ugh. Reign of Fire. What a fucking gyp.

      • Xiphos0311 says :

        Oh man Night Of The Comet I have pleasant memories of that fun little flick. i have avoided seeing it again since the mid 90’s fearing that it is a product of its time and the fact that i was a an early teen when I saw it the first time. I don’t want to be disappointed in yet another film from back in the day.

      • Continentalop says :

        Yeah, I’m afraid to rewatch that as well. In my head it is a piece of classic 80s pop culture – I’m afraid it will be just a classic POS.

        But I remember back as a kid thinking those two sisters were hot.

  8. Continentalop says :

    Actually, replace TERMINATOR with MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE (the machines take over).

  9. Judge Droid says :

    Ive never heard of this. Sounds strange but an intriguing kind of strange. Good review.

    Question. Does he actually rape anyone in the film or is he just a guy that considers rape a viable option?

    • Jarv says :

      No, he doesn’t. However, having said that it’s made apparent that he has in the past, will do at every available opportunity and would have raped QJ if she hadn’t given in.

      • Judge Droid says :

        For Disease, you could do The Stand. That’s disease isn’t it? I know its a TV miniseries but still, it’d be better than Doomsday with its Fine Young Cannibals musical interlude.

      • Jarv says :

        None of the disease options are very appealing. I like doomsday but it’s a colossal mess. I did think about 28 days later mind

      • Xiphos0311 says :

        Why not chose a disease flick to savage? I nominated the one with fucktard hydrocephalus headed Matt Damon. It’s the one where they kill off the monumentally um-selfaware Gwyneth Paltrow in the first five minutes much to the delight of the audience. It was the only good part of that crappy flick.

      • Jarv says :

        I’ve got Solarbabies on the roster, and that’s getting a kicking.

        I’ll have a look for the damon thing. Be more interesting than any Doomsday review.

        Sadly, I don’t think I can avoid both Day after tomorrow and 2012, so one of them is getting it.

  10. tombando says :

    End of the world: well there’s On the Beach w Fred Astaire etc ’59, they’re in Oz waiting for this big fallout cloud.

    Omega Man with our man Heston. Andromeda Strain. Hmmm does Book of Eli fit?

  11. Toadkillerdog says :

    Great review Jarv, really in depth and a great analysis.
    I saw this movie a very long time ago, it had reached legendary underground status back in the early 80’s.
    I was disappointed when i first saw it. Tonally odd is a great way to put it.
    upon subsequent viewing, i can’t really say i enjoyed i, but i did appreciate what it was trying to do

    • Jarv says :

      Cheers TKD.

      It’s a strange and hugely misanthropic film this one.

      • Echo the Bunnyman says :

        This is a really odd movie. Good review of it–I’d agree that ultimately it’s not as much misogynistic as suggesting how exactly human nature under those circumstances could progress, even if it is pretty bleak and sardonic about it.

        Ellison also has a habit, ala Alan Moore, of disregarding almost everything people do with his work. I’m not saying it’s not understandable, but he’s one of those writers–genuinely very talented–who almost has a second career as dedicated whiner.

        Also, I just realized the director is the same L.Q. Jones who did tons of character actor work in western and war movies over the years. His last movie was Prairie Home Companion. I most recognize him as Three Fingered Jack in Mask of Zorro.

        “Odd. That’s the second time I’ve shot that man while he was flying through the air.”

        Speaking of end of the world movies, what about The Rapture with Mimi Rodgers? I recall that being particularly weird.

      • Jarv says :

        Cheers mate. Was a bit of a struggle, and I think I went on for a bit too long, but there’s a lot to talk about here.

      • Judge Droid says :

        If you wanted to go out of the box you could do The Last of Us. That’s infection I think.

      • tombando says :

        Yes LQ Jones, real name Justus McQueen. That’s him in The Wild Bunch, Casino, he is a baddie teamed up with Lee Marvin in an episode of Big Valley, chasing after Stanwick and Bruce Dern. Pretty good actually.

  12. M. Blitz says :

    I wouldn’t mind watching this again, it’s been probably 7-8 years maybe? Always felt a little uneasy about this one, but I feel the same way about the story (though for somewhat different reasons). The story is mildly annoying in the sense that its overwhelming bleakness leaves me with a what’s-the-effing-point kind of downer feeling. The movie makes up for it somewhat with weirdness, but then it’s got that ending.

    I like the reasoning that you’re using looking at the end though. Makes me want to watch it again with that in mind. Will have to take a look around for it!

  13. Just Pillow Talk says :

    Cyborg with JCVD!

  14. Just Pillow Talk says :

    I think this was one of your better “analytical” reviews. I’ve never seen this, but your review almost makes me want to check it out.

    • Jarv says :

      It’s definitely worth a look, but bear in mind that it’s seriously unpleasant and misanthropic. Worst natured film I’ve seen in ages.

  15. Just Pillow Talk says :

    To get the wig in your list, how about Knowing?

    Or for sheer stupidity, Skyline?

  16. ThereWolf says :

    I do like this film, was considering it for the sci-fi series (can’t shake the idea somebody else reviewed it on here) but I’d never have reviewed it as well as that – good work, Jarv.

    It’s a crude and brutal movie and the second half doesn’t really work for me but it’s one of those flicks that always sticks in my mind.

    Fertility – you could do Zero Population Growth.

    Elsewhere, don’t worry about treading on my toes – plenty of these flicks to go around!

  17. Echo the Bunnyman says :

    I also concur with damnation alley. So, you can’t do nuclear holocaust twice?

    There’s a movie from the late 90s–very low-budget, but I recall it being enjoyable–that was called Six-String Samurai. I can’t remember the ELE–it was probably the bomb–but it happened in the 50s, which set up a weird Mad Max alternate world where Elvis became the King of the remainder and resided in an Emerald City enclave called New Vegas. Once he dies, everyone sets out to have a shot at the kingship. Main hero is dressed like Buddy Holly, he’s tracked by Death–who looks like Guns N Roses Slash, and is attacked by evil bowlers, Neanderthals, and I think a vague version of The Beatles. There may have also been cannibals, a trash monster, and the whole Russian army.

    It was basically Wizard of Oz spiced with Lone Wolf and Cub. I do recall the production being so cheap that Death’s hat was blatantly construction paper.

    Other apocalypse movies:

    The Last Days–everyone comes under epidemic of agoraphobia which has unusual effect on populace.

    When the Wind Blows–although it’s obviously nuclear fear.

    The Quiet Earth–quite recommend this, particularly since I believe the reason for people vanishing is never quite explained.

    Its not post apocalypse, but I remember one of my favorite apocalypse movies was The Last Wave with Richard Chamberlain and directed by Peter Weir. It was the end of the world via Aboriginal dreamtime myths and eschatology. It’s pretty spooky and hypnotic if you haven’t already seen it.

    • Jarv says :

      When I decided to do this, I wanted to do the cute summary at the end of each review. I came up with the stipulation because of the fucking millions of zombie apocalypse movies out there.

      If I go through a complete cycle I’ll come back, and add Damnation Alley as the first of the second run through.

      Seriously considering The Last Days- it’s the end of the world through Agoraphobia, IIRC. Not a bad film.

  18. Echo the Bunnyman says :

    I do think you should give Snowpiercer a whirl too. I liked it for a one-shot, but it’s allegory doesn’t really work as a visceral place. That’s the end of the world by deep-freeze.

    • Judge Droid says :

      Snowpiercer is terrible.

      • Echo the Bunnyman says :

        I didn’t find it terrible, but its highly overrated. Its really just a long action scene, but I did enjoy the trip up through the train. The ending was just over the top. Felt like it as trying too hard to be Gilliam at times. Still, there was enough there that I was entertained on the first watch.

      • Judge Droid says :

        It seemed like a film made by someone who’d watched Oldboy and thought to themselves “I really wish the hallway scene went for two and a half hours.”

      • Echo the Bunnyman says :

        ha! Kind of reductive, but that’s funny.

      • Judge Droid says :

        This is the internet. Of course it’s reductive!

      • Echo the Bunnyman says :

        Droid. have you seen Schwarzenegger’s newest yet, Maggie? I saw it recently. It’s interesting in that it feels like the first movie where the role hasn’t been tailored or specified or Arnold at all. Very low-key. Perhaps ultimately too low key, but I did like his performance and the relationship he had with Abigail Breslin in the movie. Probably his best ‘acting’ to date.

      • Judge Droid says :

        I haven’t. I saw the trailer and am very interested in seeing it.

  19. Echo the Bunnyman says :

    Also, if you’re looking for a different style of alien invasion for your apocalypse, I’d suggest Nacho Vigalando’s Extraterrestrial–this isn’t necessarily a recommendation for the movie, since I wasn’t quite sold on it–but it is a legitimate apocalypse scenario, and it’s done like an expansion of The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street with a smidge-less moral superiority.

    Most of the alien apocalypse films are anime, aren’t they? Evangelion, Blue Gender (I recall that being particularly good as an apocalyptic setting–and Final Fantasy: Spirits Within? (to the extent that was anime).

    There’s always Skyline. Heh.

  20. Judge Droid says :

    Rapture: Left Behind.

    The Hairpiece FTW!!!

    • Echo the Bunnyman says :

      Knowing is kind of Rapture-like…That’s a really underrated movie.

      I tried to watch Left Behind lately. Good lord. I think Megiddo: Omega Good 2 is better for batshit crazy Rapture-style movie. You may have already reviewed that though.

      • Judge Droid says :

        I’m not sure what the rules are for this series. Is it end if the world or post-apocalyptic or both? Cause theres heaps of good end of the world movies. Knowing, Seeking a Friend…, These Final Hours and about a billion others. But I thought it was post-apocalypse movies.

      • Echo the Bunnyman says :

        I’m not sure either, seems like there are movies listed on both sides of that line. If your theme is just apocalypse, I’d go for flexibility and embrace both. There’s an interesting movie Don McKellar made called Last Night years ago–Cronenberg was in it–that was good.
