Alexander Payne's Downsizing has had a mixed reception - including from us, but the concept itself is pretty solid. It explored the question of whether we're doing enough to combat the waste caused by our own existence, as a character muses that humanity is heading to an extinction-level reboot of the species. But in the original version of the film, this wasn't a hypothetical.

I feel like a bad reporter for admitting this, but when I heard Alexander Payne -- the director of movies like Election, About Schmidt, Sideways, Nebraska and The Descendants -- was making a new film, I just assumed Gizmodo wouldn't cover it. I didn't even look into it. I knew I'd see it, probably love it, and it would probably be nominated for a bunch of awards. But I had no idea what it was actually about.
