This movie is reasonably well directed by Adam Bhala Lough, but it's far too dependent on and indulgent of its subjects.
For such a cerebral documentary, "The New Radical" packs a wicked punch.
For all his talk of Friedrich Nietzsche and Michel Foucault, Wilson essentially seems like just another capitalist bro ...
By nature of its central subject, it's a piece of work that infuriates and excites. It's a deeply upsetting movie, and then, sporadically, a hopeful one.
The New Radical excels at venturing into the thick of that void to reveal the men eager to dwell in its darkness.
Locating the common ground between pro-gun activism and anti-big-bank subversion, The New Radical is as complex as it is discomforting.
Lough takes it easy on his subjects, turning the documentary into a YouTube conspiracy video instead of a sharply constructed and confrontational understanding of the digital revolution.
The New Radical turns out to be pretty much the Old Radical with a smart phone in his hand.
Had it incorporated women's voices, Lough's documentary would be exceptional, but as it stands it is a good primer on the "dark web."
A stunning reminder of where we are and can only hint at where we may be heading.
Fails to present its subjects' views with cogency.
The great strength of "The New Radical" is that it's not on its subjects' side (or totally against them either). It's the rare documentary that lets you decide.
