I saw this and it has some very good directing, great acting and a captivating story.
The end is dissapointing, sort of indulging and un-imaginative but very good film up to that.

It deals alligorically wtih upcoming tensions and social unrest.
It's good the aligorry is good, my only objection is why they have to almost always bring in the mental illness part.
Just let it free no need to be scientific about it, it narrows it down. (but also makes it very much more poignant).
Good film though, very contemporary unfortunately.

quite enjoyed this one as well. Yeah I think the mental illness thing was a bit far fetched and overdone, particularly as he ended up seeing the tornadoes he always feared. Could have been left a bit more ambiguous...
