We just finished watching the first two seasons of Luther on Netflix Instant Streaming. It is a crime series starring Idris Elba, and it can be very disturbing. One thing I like about it is that even though it is set in present-day London, it has a pronounced dystopian flavor. I was trying to come up with other examples of present-day dystopias in film or fiction — not set in the future, or in superhero-land, but in our world we live in — but I couldn’t.
