Future perfect societies (utopias) are highly improbable, and there are only a few examples of filmed utopias. It is more common among writers and filmmakers to portray the reverse of a utopia, a future world gone wrong, that is, a dystopia. These future societies are nightmare worlds where the inhabitants have been deprived of their freedom, individuality and even their self-esteem.)

A typical dystopian film is one which is set, usually in the future, in a society where the government is corrupt or ineffectual, but by no means all such films are dystopias. The world within the film often has nightmare-like qualities, though it also usually includes elements of contemporary society. Often, dystopian films function as a warning against some element of modern society.)
