Power To The Clickers, 4 August 2002
Author: rufasff from Los Angeles

Even in the realm of the weird there is nothing else quite like "The

Creation Of The Hummaniods." Sure it's cheap, and it's got Dudley

Manlove(too small a role), but this dense, futuristic drama is miles

from Ed Wood and explored ideas (yes, "Blade Runner") that would be

judged profound coming out of a film with a budget.

The movie has about as many camera set-ups as "Rope"; but

a million times more story. Sure, it has unintentional humor, and

the most interesting thing about it; in the end, is it's an

unintentional exploration of boredom(hence, I think, the tie to Warhol).

It is moralistic, but avoids easy morality. Pax is a victim, but

also a seducer. Those who embrace the wave of robots are are hopeless as

those who attempt to enslave them.

This is a one of a kind film, and should be seen. Ten out of ten.
