Welcome to the Machine (2014)
What the Heck, Man?!!?
Amazing premise in the description. No delivery of anything remotely promised.
The problems start immediately with an inflammatory quote that is not followed-up on. Instead, we get a long introduction to a new band, and the longer the introduction goes on, the less interesting the band becomes.
Not really an exposé of the Machine, but a monotonous contemplation by several individuals of their journey through it. Nothing revelatory. At times repetitive, slow, and just very clumsy.
It picks up about 45 minutes in, then drops again and offers more lazy editing and poor story telling.
Kudos for the effort of interviewing a large number of players for it; I just wish the outcome had been better. :(
Oh, it's pretty bad
It's only 15 minutes so maybe it won't hurt that much. Didn't like the shaky cam and extraneous sounds for no reason, lack of character development for protagonist, which made her actions seem erratic, lots of looking straight ahead/in the mirror before something substantial happens, and that last action there at the end... just dumb.
Maybe if we knew more about the damages suffered it would be easier to understand that last decision but without that information, it seems like he just grew impatient. Didn't like this one.
I wish the film maker will make a more balanced effort in the future, as well as discard junk editing techniques.
