Science fiction is always more about the present, and even the past, than it is about the future, which by definition we don't know anything about. That's certainly true of Oblivion, the sly, surprising and visually magnicificent Tom Cruise vehicle. I'm sure some people will see Oblivion as another Philip K Dick rehash, but to my mind director Joseph Kosinski and co-writers Karl Gajdusek and Michael Arndt have synthesized all these influences into a witty and elegant post-apocalyptic parable that's well suited to our age of asymmetrical warfare and even asymmetircal reality.
