This was a year of hard lessons. Movie attendance and ticket sales fell. Television shows struggled and died. Book publishers faced an electronic future. And through it all, some great works of the imagination thrived. What did 2010 teach us?
With health care a source of fierce debate in America, a movie like Repo Men was bound to be made. A bloody satire of the marriage between medicine and capitalism, it's about repo men who collect on overdue artificial organs.
Repo Men is a smorgasbord of absurdist futurism references, according to director Miguel Sapochnik. He showed us which science fiction classics he drew on, from Brazil to Clockwork Orange. But no, Repo! The Genetic Opera isn't on the list.
