I think this is an allegory for our time. I’m mystified as to how the director and writer and whomever else pulled this off. It’s remarkable that something so complex could be manufactured in the midst of this ignorant state. This is art.
When I have time, maybe after I get the raccoons out of my HVAC system, I might explain why I think this movie is so poignant. In brief, it has a lot to do with paternalism, the All Father (or whatever), the hubris of white-male-capitalist-America, the searching for salvation from a savior instead of using reason and human intelligence to solve problems and create a better world.
