Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World Reviews
"I deeply regret the fact that deep critical thinking ... creative thinking is lost.
In my opinion, computers and in some sense the Internet are the worst enemy of deep critical thinking.
Our youth of today are using machines to replace their examination of the things they are observing ... they rely on the internet to decipher ... they fail to understand concepts."
It isn't perfect by any means. But people should watch it.
This time he takes a step into the world of technology - the mighty Internet. Usually he does more nature-themed films, but this one is something we all know lots about, but never enough. It's parted into nine or ten pieces, from the beginning to the future. From the pros to the cons. Most of the parts are great, some are OK. It's very informinative, still speculating and fresh. The score is swell too.
The problem is that there is not much new here. Well, you don't know half of it in forehand, but the things they go through is never mindbending. Maybe it is, but we know it is. It's no shockers. Still, a great film that I feard would be a lot worse.
7 out of 10 bits.
