Owned & Operated is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the Internet. Showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control. But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system... and fear in those who are pampered by it.Written by
OK, the topic is interesting, the marks were good, good reasons to watch it. But only after 20 minutes, it become hard, first due to the technical reasons: images changing hysterically, there just to add weight to the statements without any real context, scenes too vivid, too quick, too imposing... Than a narrative, with quick, taken segments, bits and peaces from countless videos, again frantic, without chance to hear more, to have a chance to digest. During all that time, there is a sound, too strong music in the background, irritating really.
Cross section of the society, the first part of the documentary is fine, but there are better ways to do it - in this way is as the author wanted us to feel all of the information bombardment heavily criticized inside. At least, it is not clear whether is it deliberate.
Finally, the story - well known the critique of consumerism, shallowness, inequality, government control, financial moguls, lack of liberty... As said, we already know those quite well, and having in mind the year Owned & Operated went out, it is really nothing new. The final part is the offer, or the way out of this nightmare: And what we see - reflect on the various movements appeared in the last years (but again, just desolated), few alternatives, bits and peaces from various parts of the world, but again without any strength and any connection. Besides, all of those movements are already long disappeared or just marginal.
Don't get me wrong, the topic is important, but if this is a substitute to the gloomy realm, we are in trouble.
