Equilibrium (2002) Retrospective: A World Without Emotion

Let’s take a look into the dystopian world of EQUILIBRIUM, a 2002 sci-fi masterpiece directed by Kurt Wimmer and starring Christian Bale.

I explore the oppressive society of Libria, where emotions are illegal, and the art of Gun Kata is born. Christian Bale delivers as Cleric John Preston, a high-ranking enforcement officer who begins to question the system he upholds after skipping a dose of the emotion-suppressing drug, Prozium.

From the destruction of the Mona Lisa to the intense action sequences and the moral quandaries faced by Preston, we break down the key moments, themes, and critiques of this cult classic.
