In the post-apocalyptic, post-nuclear world of Hardware, our worst environmental fears have come true. Temperatures hover at a balmy 110 degrees in the shade and the omnipresent radiation has wreaked havoc with the societal gene pool. For your entertainment there is a 24-hour television broadcasting porno films and heavy-metal music videos. Radio offers the rantings and ravings of Angry Bob (Iggy Pop), a lunatic disc jockey who broadcasts bad news all day. Good news has become a thing of the past. If you are looking to escape reality, try smoking the mind-altering "Major Good Vibes" - the painkiller of choice. But, if you're looking for comfort or safety, forget it: just lock your doors, turn on your super-sophisticated security system and pray that nobody knocks. For in this world, everything can harm you - whether it is the air you breathe, the food you eat, or a seemingly harmless bit of hardware... Upon its release in the US, Hardware became the most successful British independent movie ever released over there. This is the DVD premiere for this cult classic from director Richard Stanley.
