LX 2048 (2020)



Critic Consensus: LX 2048 tries grounding its sci-fi conceit in relatable family dynamics, but is ultimately too thinly sketched and narratively diffuse to work.

Movie Info

It is 2048. Mankind has by now destroyed the ozone layer to such a degree that normal human beings cannot be out in daytime. People spend their waking hours at night and almost everything is done inside the virtual realm. From work to school to socializing, most people just stay home and conduct their affairs from their Virtual Reality designated spaces. Mental depression has become so prevalent that the entire population is required to take the state issued pill 001LithiumX. In this new world order, Adam Bird is a rare breed. Adam insists on waking up during the day. He insists on leaving his house and going to work in a physical office. He has 3 kids in a time when most people barely breed, and he adamantly refuses to take 001LithiumX, fighting to stay human in a world that is rapidly transforming into the artificial. But things change when Adam discovers his heart is mysteriously failing. With no possibility for an organ transplant, Adam is now scheduled to be replaced by a cloned upgrade -- an improved version of himself that will be supplied to his estranged wife as part of the Premium 3 government insurance plan. Spiraling out of control, Adam starts living on borrowed time, seeking to find a solution before his replica will be sent to raise his kids and replace his existence across the board.

[A] quirky, low-budget science-fiction feature...

January 19, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Guy Moshe's dystopic science-fiction movie LX 2048 feels particularly timely and on-point, essentially channeling the nightly climate-change news (floods, hurricanes, wildfires, and so forth) into a wry, fantastical form.

I enjoyed it, but man -- there's a lot going on, and maybe too much.

It's always fun when a little film comes out of nowhere that has the ability to surprise.

I'm not sure how good a movie it is, but it would be an excellent basis for a streaming series, in which its ambitious ideas would have time to develop.

September 24, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

While LX 2048 isn't equally satisfying on all fronts, it's more than successful enough to add to the where-are-we-going? syllabus.
