How might your life be better with less? Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things examines the many flavors of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life -- families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker -- all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less.
We're not going to ever be able to achieve the environmental gains that we're seeking, while still expecting our lives to be the same. We're going have to give up a lot. The secret is that a lot of that we're not actually going to miss.

I really wanted to like this but it rubbed me the wrong way. The bros came off as egotist more than minimalist. My concern is that while they are perhaps trying to promote a lifestyle, they are move actively trying to promote themselves.
As experts that were featured in the documentary noted: consumerism threatens our mental health and environment. Instead of focusing on this compelling argument--the bros wanted to talk about their moms, previous corporate success, their very successful blog spot #theminimalist and book which is available for download on Amazon. I would have preferred a focus on the reasons for converting to a minimalist lifestyle rather than a fun memory book Josh and Ryan's Excellent Adventure.
