Meine zehn liebsten dystopischen Filme

15. Januar 2015 at 17:58


Hach, ich liebe Zukunftsvisionen und ganz besonders liebe ich die dystopischen Zukunftsvisionen, gerne auch dreckig und düster, vielleicht ein Endzeitszenario, unbedingt aber in irgendeiner Form desillusionierend sollten sie sein. Diese Liste zu erstellen war gar nicht so einfach für mich, es gibt viele gute Vertreter des Genre und einige starke Filme mussten auf der Strecke bleiben. Viel Spaß also mit dieser Liste!
