Southland Tales (2006)

Samuel Goldwyn Films
Directed by Richard Kelly
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
(Blu-ray, Sony)

In the near future, the war on terrorism has escalated to a nuclear attack on the US and World War 3. Fuel shortages have lead to the development of an alternative energy source in the ocean near LA. However, it comes with a cost: it has lead to a rift in space-time which threatens to destroy the planet. It is up to an actor with amnesia and an ambitious porn star to try to stop it. Ambitious film can't decide if it's sci fi, comedy or political satire. Uneven but still manages to hold one's attention for nearly 2 and a half hours.
