* Post-WWII Berlin in ''Film/AForeignAffair''. It's played straight at times, since some of the residents were happy when the Americans turned on the gas... so they could kill themselves, but it also shows the resilient people of Germany who are trying to repair their destroy homes, lives, and beliefs.

* ''Film/TheThinning'' is set in a post-apocalyptic future where, in order to conserve dwindling nature resources, the United Nations has mandated that [[PopulationControl every member country must reduce their population sizes by 5% every year.]] America has chosen to do this by issuing [[AchievementTestOfDestiny an annual aptitude test]] for grades 1-12. Those who do poorly on the test are eliminated. [[spoiler: Or rather, they're shipped off to a factory to be used as forced labor, likely for the rest of their lives.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/WallE'': The entire Earth centuries earlier had been reduced to a trash-filled Hellhole, the human population fleeing when it started to become too difficult to breathe and the "throw legions of trash-compacting robots at the problem" approach failed. By the time of the movie, all the WALL•E unit (barring one) have broken down, with the [[{{Woobie}} last one continuing to pile up the trash into layers surpassing the skyscrapers, with only a cockroach as a friend]]. [[spoiler:Still, things had improved enough for plant life to be viable.]]

* The world of ''WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}}'' to an extent is filled with racism and prejudice based on what animal you are and which animal your interacting with. There's even implications of racial profiling just because 'that fox looks suspicious' and the hero is even accused of being a racist when she's told that ''all predators look savages to you bunnies'', only for said {{Jerkass}} to follow it up with ''You think I'm going to listen to a fox?'' when she tries to reason with him through a key witness.

* ''Film/TheActOfKilling'' portrays Indonesia as this.
* Russia and New York are essentially portrayed as this in ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail''. It's amped up a notch in ''Fievel Goes West'' to justify the Mousekwitz family leaving New York to go west.

** In the Film/DCExtendedUniverse, we haven't seen much of Gotham yet, but its reputation precedes it.

** Even ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' pales to ''Film/BatmanReturns'', which is set in the crappiest of {{Crapsack World}}s where Batman admits that he's as twisted and neurotic as the villains he goes after, a despicable CorruptCorporateExecutive gets away with multiple acts of murder and pollution and still remains well respected as the "Light of Gotham", and the citizenry in general are gullible, decadent, and unlikeable. Seriously, if Heath Ledger's Joker turned up in the world of ''Film/BatmanReturns'' and set up the Prisoner's Dilemma with the two ferries, they'd blow each other up before he finished talking.

* ''Film/VForVendetta'': This is set in a London turned fascist with PoliceBrutality being the order of the day. The closest thing this work has to a hero is a ByronicHero who would very much be considered a terrorist.

* ''Film/VForVendetta'': This ''Film/VForVendetta'' depicts a future where a nuclear war wiped out the Middle East, America has collapsed into pestilence, poverty and civil war, and Britain is set in controlled by a London turned fascist with PoliceBrutality being regime. Britain's only hope is an insane superhuman terrorist who wants to destroy the order of the day. The closest thing this work has to a hero is a ByronicHero who would very much be considered a terrorist.government and replace it with... [[UsefulNotes/{{Anarchism}} Erm, nothing]].

** To a lesser extent, the original 1985 Hill Valley. The gates to Marty's subdivision are covered in graffiti, the streets are filled with litter, a bum unabashedly sleeps on a bench right in town square, many of the buildings appear to be re-purposed by cheaper businesses, [[ArsonMurderJaywalking and the clock tower doesn't even work.]]
