A Serious Man (2009)

"While his wife and Sy Ableman blithely make new domestic arrangements, and his brother becomes more and more of a burden, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry's chances for tenure at the university. Also, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation. Plus, the beautiful woman next door torments him by sunbathing nude. Struggling for equilibrium, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis. Can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person -- a mensch -- a serious man?"

Description: The story takes place in a newly built city, after the world has run out of all forms of conventional energy. In this city a new source of energy is used: excrements. The leaders of the city pass two new laws to generate and control the new energy: 1) There is an ID-chip installed in every citizen´s anus to monitor their defecation level. 2) For each defecation the citizen receives a bright blue, suckable "juicybar" (which contains addictive substances). As a result, defecation amounts have rocketed, but the addictive nature of the juicybars has created an illegal trade market. As a side effect of the juicybars some people have mutated into blue, penisless, dwarf-sized mutants. As these mutants are unable to defecate, they form the "diaper-gang" to attack and plunder juicybar-transports.
And this is just what we are told in the first two minutes of the film! I´m not making this up, I swear. But whatever these South Koreans mix into their food, I want to have it too.
