Somewhat amusing satire on the superficiality, social inadequacy, lack of imagination, anomie, ennui, spiritual emptiness, the emotional repression and the violent tendencies of Whites - and their fundamental desire to preserve a way of life that is inherently miserable for fear of the hard work involved in any suitable alternative. The movie works quite well as metaphor for the War on Terror and Globalization and their attendant paranoias by suggesting that without a generalized fear and ignorance of unknown others there would be no way of life worth preserving.

Overall, however, this movie never really gets beyond being an example of the very things it satirizes. The best it can manage is the Hippie dream of a reversion to childhood and the resultant drapetoresponsia.
