    Film: Collapse

    Anyone heard of the film Collapse?

    It's an economic doomsday type film about the upcoming shortage of resources the the resulting fundamental social collapse that the author anticipates around the world. It's about economic/social TEOTWAWKI, and a bit of what to do about it.

    The LA Times perspective is a bit more along the lines of conspiracy theory. NPR is a bit less caustic in their appraisal.

    Thoughts?

    Anyone seen it?

    Is this being distributed into theaters?

    No I haven't heard about this movie, but may check it out. Economic collapse is one of the scenerios I believe is possible in todays world, especially after the events of a year ago.

    It's been released to DVD, but I don't know how readily available it is yet. Netflix option right now is to Save.
