This movie is about a world where time is used as a currency instead of money (you can find more about it here). It is so interesting and f*cked up, that I’d like to live in it. It combines the hunger for money we have with the lack of time. Wouldn’t it be interesting if we would get paid with time instead of us being paid with money? Because that’s what we actually spend in our life and we can never get back. That’s what it actually matters.
The fact that you can actually see when you’re going to die if you do nothing about it is really scary, but I believe it can also be very motivating. Of course there is a system in place which is controlled by some fat cats, but that’s not the point. That’s just pure greed. It seems that only when we know we have so little of it, we can actually start to appreciate time. And this applies to everything. When we know that something is close to an end, we start appreciating it. Humans are strange.
I don’t remember how they got to have this system, but it’s sicker than this capitalistic one we’re living in right now. It’s a great way to keep constant the number of people. Even though there is enough time out there, only a few control it. That’s a world where literally every second matters. Do we really need to be limited so we can enjoy each minute?
Anyway, it’s a great movie and it really made me think about the way I live my life. What do you think about this movie?
