The scattershot and lengthy documentary doesn't attempt to be a news report...but the cumulative impact of its often haunting images brings home the plight of millions of the world's people.

The imagery encourages viewers to adopt a global perspective in considering the subject matter.

It does not browbeat or preach, it simply shows, and what it shows is overwhelming.

November 10, 2017 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Ai's film becomes more digressive than discursive. Rather than contending with the information saturation around the crisis, Human Flow falls prey to it. Footage is layered without clear logic, poetic or narrative.

The film is all the more powerful for being so calm and unhurried. Ai doesn't castigate or preach. He doesn't have to. The facts, the images, speak for themselves. Instead, he bears witness.

Ai Weiwei has made something beautiful: Human Flow is neither indulgent nor pedantic, but clear-eyed in its view of the enormity of the crisis too vast for most of us to comprehend.
