[A] thoughtful but slow and random snapshot of life in the former Soviet republic of Georgia.

The film produces moments that catch in the throat, like the man who sheepishly admits he would need rehearsal to laugh on cue. Then he adds, softly, "But cry, no problem."

No doubt it's affecting, but Gurchiani hasn't effectively connected the pieces to shape a larger story about Georgian youth.

A film less regional than universal in its presentation of the human urge to reshape oneself with others' help.

The experiment isn't more than a slice of life, but at least it's a generous one.

The effect of "Machine" is similar to an anthology of short stories woven around a singular setting. Every life in it is a window onto both a unique and shared destiny.

Tinatin Gurchiani's accomplished first feature The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear offers an impressionistic, somewhat poetical view of current life in her native former Soviet territory.
