This is not funny-"Children of Men" about future but seem a lot like today

"Children of Men" is among one of the few films today to tell both the way things are now and what they could become. It says do something now! I wonder if that's why
it is being ignored?
Common criticisms I have heard:
"It's not religious enough like the book". Excuse me I am not even a Christian
and I knew it was a future vision of the Nativity story.
"It doesn't explain things." I love films that don't seek to entertain but
force you to think. ("Picnic On Hanging Rock" hear hear!)
Very well filmed. The art direction was excellent. That and the cinematography completely set the mood. the background set was like a character itself extremely horrifying. It may have been classified as sci fi but like "Syriana" has a realistic
documentary feel.
That's all folks. Viva la Mexico!
