apple tv: idiocracy

Idiocracy is one of those movies like Three Kings where it defies belief that someone funded the production of the story. An average person from today is put into suspended animation, and awakes, hundreds of years later, to a society where he is now the smartest person in the world. Its crass (in a frat-boy humour way) portrayal of a life taken over by corporations has moments of insight into the kind of culture that the West risks embracing to greater and greater extents.
