Battle Queen 2020 ★★ 1999 (R)

In a frozen post-apocalyptic future (eternal winter after asteroid crash), Gayle (Strain) leads the downtrodden masses in a revolution against the Elites who live above ground. She's a courtesan by day, freedom fighter by night…or is the other way around? This one is at least as good as “Battlefield Earth.” It's certainly shorter and was made by people who were under no illusions about what they were doing. 80m/C DVD . CA Julie Strain, Jeff Wincott; D: Daniel D'or; W: Michael B. Druxman, William Hulkower, William D. Bostjancic, Caron Nightengale; C: Billy Brao; M: Robert Duncan. VIDEO
