    Ten years ago, satirist Mike Judge told of an impossible future in which our collective intelligence had dropped so low it threatened to destroy the world. In this future, America was run by a corrupt, sociopathic former pro-wrestler with severe anger management issues, and the most popular entertainment in the land was a YouTube-esque video playlist called “Ow My Balls.”

    Flash forward to today. We are approaching the end of the most bizarre, absurdist presidential race in U.S. history. Over the past months, thousands have questioned in social media whether IDIOCRACY was actually a documentary. Mike Judge’s sadly prescient film has transcended its cult classic status to become a vibrant and essential facet of this election conversation.

    The Alamo Drafthouse, along with the network of Arthouse Convergence Theaters and local League of Women Voters chapters, want to invite everyone to revisit and rediscover IDIOCRACY on the eve of the 2016 presidential election.

    Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with director Mike Judge and star Maya Rudolph streamed live from the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. Questions will be taken via Twitter using the hashtag #IdiocracyToday.​

    This should be the most depressing fun evening ever.

    Typically I find myself saying "It can't have been that long ago." when talking about stuff from my past. But for the first time, after reading the opening sentence, I thought "It had to have been more than 10 years ago that Idiocracy came out."

    He missed the part where the leader of the free world is a white supremacist.
