A dark, dystopian future where emotions are outlawed, but we aren’t spared Taye Diggs gorgeous smile. We don’t really care about that plot though. ‘Equilibrium’ delivers action porn in spades through the ridiculous creation of a new form of Kung Fu! Thankfully the film takes it seriously enough for this action porn to be fun. GUN KATA!

Mathieu Kassovitz (The Crimson Rivers) took the film world by storm with La haine (Hate), a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieues on Paris’s outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz, Hubert, and Saïd. White, Black, and Arab, they give human faces to France’s immigrant and marginalized populations. Their resentment simmering until it reaches a boiling point. A work of tough beauty, La Haine is a landmark of contemporary French cinema and a gripping reflection of its country’s ongoing identity crisis.
