Cheer up; worlds gonna end in ten minutes anyway.

Strange Days plunges us into a seedy neo-noir Los Angeles in the waning days of the 20th century. As New Years Eve approaches, violence between the increasingly militarized police and the citys residents reaches a suffocating fever pitch. Lenny Nero, a smut-peddler who sells other peoples recorded memories on the black market  be they robberies, sexual fantasies, or numerous other depraved acts that will grant a fleeting thrill  stumbles across the most vile disc of them all: a recorded act of horrific violence that not only threatens to put his former partner in danger, but unravels a deeper labyrinth of abused power within the LAPD.

Kathryn Bigelows neglected-upon-release film viscerally sums up an era of anxiety around technology, exploring how often the utopian promise of technology mutates to reflect our basest instincts and desires, and provides the means to establish and maintain power structures in new ways. In turn though, this film smartly explores how technological advancements can also become tools to dismantle and hold accountable abused forces of power. However complex these themes might be, Bigelow never strays too far from what she does best: action. Utilizing a particularly clever use of point-of-view cinematography and a healthy dose of blunt-force pulp, Strange Days nonetheless contains a haunting relevance few films of its peer group can claim.
