Dave Kehr reviews Things to Come (being released on DVD & Blu-ray) and makes the case for its influence:
This retro-future, where rusting automobiles are pulled by horses, colonnaded halls are heated by bonfires and ragged mobs march by torchlight, may have been a vision of hell to a progressive like Wells, but for the romantic neo-tribalists of the present generation of movie heroes, it looks like a land of opportunity, free from corporate oppression and technological tyranny.
