I had to put off seeing the end of this until today. Very cool vibe, more dream-like than apocalyptic, even though shit definitely goes down.

The messaging--that the young people see disaster coming and the authorities not only don't listen, they're so contemptuous that they blame the young folks, giving the disaster time to accelerate--isn't exactly subtle, but it hits hard anyway.
