Beautiful, smart, exhilarating and risky, Creative Control is the most satisfyingly ambitious and excitingly fresh movie I've seen in a while. And I don't say that lightly.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better looking movie and a more interesting premise. But, dramatically, the film suffers from unlikable characters and a certain smugness.

At times, I felt like I was out on a date with "Creative Control," only to find the movie kept checking its hair in the mirror every five minutes.

Like Antonioni, Dickinson is less interested in narrative structure and character development, but there's a problem here: He has nothing new to say about technology, alienation and the lost art of romance.

"Creative Control" is a hypnotic voyage into a society where technology addiction comes to rule and ruin those who fall under its seductive spell.
March 16, 2016
Handsomely made, but lacks grit and knowledge, recycling tired relationship woes and chemical excess other, more inventive features have explored to greater success.

Watching Creative Control ... is like seeing Steven Soderbergh's Kafka and Woody Allen's Manhattan distilled through an Instagram filter.
March 14, 2016
An exploration of the drawbacks to a technologically dominated society where the biggest challenges are intimate relationships.

"Creative Control" has a lot to say, and style to spare, but stronger performances and better-drawn characters could have made its message even more effective and enjoyable.

Creative Control questions our current direction ... [it's] a movie with enough dramatic pizzazz that not even Reggie Watts's psychedelic performances can steal the show.

The more we augment reality, Dickinson seems to suggest, the more we reveal what's true about ourselves.
March 11, 2016
If nothing else, I would have been happier with a film that did something unexpected with its technology. Gorgeous cinematography aside, this was a tough slog.
March 10, 2016
Depressing in the extreme, "Creative Control" surfs its subject as if unaware of the possibilities.
March 10, 2016
For a film about technology's growing dehumanization, this stylized beauty is a frisky, formidable temptation.
March 10, 2016
While watching Creative Control I couldn't help but think back to the first time I saw Shane Carruth's Primer or Duncan Jones' Moon.
March 10, 2016
Amounts to little more than a preening ode to one filmmaker's contempt for a very particular subset of humanity.
March 10, 2016
Shot in gorgeous black and white with an expansive widescreen palate, this drama blends elements of science fiction with a touch of comedy for good measure.
March 10, 2016
Combines a satire of corporate hipsterdom with a metaphor for personal alienation and sexual fantasy, without ever completely committing to either.
March 10, 2016
Creative Control is the bleeding-edge tech drama we hoped Steve Jobs would be. It's always the start-ups that surprise us.
March 8, 2016
The film's monochrome palette and crisp lensing lend it a well-defined severity otherwise wholly lacking.
