Half World | Chicago Reader

Half World

In this mannered science fiction film from 1993, the sun's rays have become deadly; people venture out mostly at night or in sealed-off taxicabs that operate with video monitors, and banned postcards of idyllic daytime scenes are traded clandestinely. Austrian director Florian Flicker means to suggest that we already live walled-off from nature, but his ecological theme is undercut by the grating imagery used to depict the toxic sunlight and by MTV cliches such as a love scene illuminated by a strobe.
