Southland Tales (2006)

Southland Tales

Directed by Richard Kelly

2006 • R • English • 144 min.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson leads an all-star cast (including but not limited to Saturday Night Live alums, pop-singers-turned-actors, an ex-vampire slayer, and the original Highlander) in this weird and wild satire about a near-future American dystopia that looks more and more like our current American dystopia. Justin Timberlake’s blood-soaked, lip-synched musical number (J.T. is one of the pop singers in the movie) is one of the greatest movie scenes of the 21st century.

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Seann William Scott
