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.
Weiwei doesn't break any new ground in covering the global refugee crisis, but he vividly illustraes - in straightforward yet artistic terms - the scale of the problem without compromising the dignity or humanity of the survivors.
Ai [Weiwei] clearly wants to take a macro view of an impossible problem, to find some clarity in abstraction. But whenever he just talks to the refugees face to face, we learn more than any drone shot could tell us.
The film is long ... but the cumulative effect is not exhaustion or boredom, but rather sorrow and outrage at the violence, economic despair and persecution - whether religious, ethnic or political - that have driven these people from their homes.
