children of men

children of men looks like a good movie. it's about the near future, where women have lost the ability to concieve. the really interesting thing about this movie, is that it takes a theme that i have long held dear to my writer's heart, that of women and their ability to produce life, and how without women, there really is no future. imagine that: where do you go, what do you do... without women? without their ability to produce? what is the point?

anyway, watch the trailer here in quicktime. notice the music in the beginning of the trailer, a cover of the rolling stones' gimmie shelter done by a string section. also, i think it is absolutely brilliant that the future of mankind depends on a woman of colour. brilliant.
