The film's title was inspired by the popular maxim "Less is more," popularized by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), who used this aphorism to describe his design aesthetic; his tactic was one of arranging the necessary components of a building to create an impression of extreme simplicity. The Minimalists have reworked this phrase to create a sense of urgency for today's consumer culture: now is the time for less.
Really liked the first one. But this one just feels meh. It felt like if the protagonists were declaiming a poem and not speaking about real life. Would have appreciated a more in depth before and after comparison of one or two real life people that made the change, rather then just little clips of a lots of people saying things without knowing their context.
Love the subject and the guys, did not enjoy the documentary.
