What’s not to like?Children might find Judge Doom a bit too scary and especially towards the end when his villainous scheme reveals itself (I don’t think I’m giving too much away announcing a character called Judge Doom being a baddie). The plot might also confuse younger viewers as it encompasses themes of corruption, corporate sabotage and blackmail certainly, I didn’t get it when I first saw it as a child all those years ago although I’d be lying if I said it ruined my enjoyment of the film.

Mandel plays with the word “terminal” as both an ending and a passage (as in an airport terminal, which takes you to another place), and the book seems to thematize this play on words. Is the apocalypse simply an end to society, or is it the gateway to another world? And even if it is the latter, will our nostalgia lead us to relinquish that potentiality for the prospect of familiar comforts and familiar threats, the ones which lead to this situation in the first place? The characters all exist in this sort of paralysis between nostalgia and adaptation.
The Indigenous Peoples who are defending the lands and water are descendants of cultures with powerful identities stretching back for centuries, long before white European settlers arrived. They had alphabets. A deep matrilineal tradition of communalism existed in tribal villages where people worked their lands in the presence of their ancestors graves, in harmony with the natural world, believing the land and water belong to everyone, considering the earth their mother and that they are connected to the stars, part of a seamless web of life..
