Desultory and jejune
5 February 2002 | by (Toronto, ON Canada) – See all my reviews



I was disappointed that the subject matter of this film was covered in such a desultory manner. Ultimately the result is to make Steve Mann's work seem jejune, even if he does appear to be an interesting and brilliant guy. I don't know if this is on account of Mann's inability to articulate his philosophy or because the director did not allow him to do so except in gnomic sound bites. We learn that Mann is concerned with the intrusion into the mental environment by phenomena such as billboards and other advertising, and that he is somehow concerned with hidden surveillance, but we don't find out how his devices provide either a symbolic or practical antidote to these things. We don't even learn much about the technology itself.
