Dystopia at it's finest...

Equilibrium (2002)

The population of Libria (and we're going to assume the rest of the world as well) have given up the highs and lows of normal human emotion in favor of a mood altering drug and the promise of a world without war.

Christian Bale plays a Cleric with a slowly developing conscience...though "cleric" means something entirely different in this little twist on Brave New World.

Plot holes and total disregard for reality aside, Bale's acting is superb, but this one gets my top place for introducing us all to the amazing art of Guntaka...and for providing us with some eye candy while doing so.

"Remember, remember the fifth of November..." And thanks to this movie we all just might. At least while we're watching Hugo Weaving take bullet after bullet in order to bring an end to the oppression of the latest totalitarian England.

Natalie Portman takes on one of her best roles to date as Evie, one woman more in a society that seems to have sat through the usurping of every form of English government and succumb to a complete censorship of basic human liberties. A chance encounter with a mysterious masked stranger causes her to question everything and inspire the type of chaotic plan that always seems to work in the movies.

This one makes number two on my list for its amazing representations, a well thought out story line, and the sheer balls of Natalie Portman, who had to be under the influence of something when she signed a contract saying, "No. I have no problem with you immortalizing the moment that you shave me bald. Image in Hollywood is nothing!"

Clive Owen takes us into a future where the birth rate dropped to absolute zero nineteen years in the past. Facing extinction, part of Great Britain has placed their faith in Totalitarian control, while another part has decided upon anarchy.

We follow an unlikely hero and a foreign born child prostitute's painfully improvised escape from a country where immigration is illegal and immigrants are deported into ghettos. Their mission is to save the first infant born in two decades.

This one gets number three on my list for the reaction of squadron after squadron of raiding police as they realize that the sound they are hearing is the first baby cry they have probably ever heard in their lives. Pretty powerful moment.

Just what we needed with the 2012 destruction date looming just around the corner--a look at a list full of anti-paradises. Careful, children. This may be what the world is like if it survives to 2013...you never know!

These are the absolute best dytopic worlds created in film...in my humble opinion.

Great list and great movies.

maybe you can add Brazil.

Cool to see "City of Lost Children" get listed! Nice list!

I'm afraid I haven't seen any of those except A Clockwork Orange. I've read Brave New World and agree entirely, but I didn't even know it was a movie! And if you don't get to see enough of society in Blade Runner, then you also don't get to see enough of society in Clockwork Orange. I saw it when I was very young and untraveled, but I pretty much just figured that that was how the slums of England were in the 60's when I saw it. I had to read it to realize that it wasn't supposed to be normal!

Great list, how about The Hunger Games?
