HQ Trivia Is a Harbinger of Dystopia - The Atlantic - via Theatlantic
It would be a far leap to say that HQ allegorizes the present moment of media, politics, and civic life. But not too far. Sensation is more important than thought, intuition wins out over reason, and on online platforms anyone can subject anyone else to whatever idea they prefer, in any context. This is trivia as a measure of intrinsic merit, not of lived experience, let alone reasoned choice.

MACKINTOSH: I used to be a poet. So for me, having the language be beautiful is always a priority for me. And I wanted the rhythm of the language to kind of reflect the water, to reflect that timeless, kind of dreamy atmosphere. You know, it is set in the future. But it could be set 50 years ago. It does have a timeless quality to it.

Dystopia, Apocalypse, Culture War: 2018 or 1968? - The New York Times - via Nytimes
If “2001: A Space Odyssey” represents the pinnacle of the cinematic art circa 1968, or at least its critical adulation, “Planet of the Apes” — one of that year’s other sensations — has often been viewed as more of a light pop diversion. In “2001,” an ape-man turns a bone into a weapon, initiating a progression that traces humanity from, as it’s been described, ape to angel. In “Planet of the Apes,” humanity has blown it, surrendering the world to our primate overlords. “Planet” is the cruder science-fiction freak-out, but its vision of human de-evolution retains extraordinary power. Even decades later, I can instantly see Charlton Heston collapsing on a beach under the pitiless gaze of the Statue of Liberty as he bellows at a world that has betrayed him (us). “We finally really did it. You maniacs! You blew it up! Oh, damn you, goddamn you all to hell!” I think about that scene a lot. (M.D.)
