The very possibility of future technologies
24 May 2016 | by SchrodingermindSee all my reviews

You give man excitement, a source and niche. The pleasure is so much that he would even fail to ask whether he is manipulated or not.

One of the best short creations I have ever seen. Hope this would turn into a feature, just to reach more people as it is already awesome. Though it slightly reminded me of psycho-pass, this live action has good feel and an awesome moral. The execution is very neat and this is a next-gen making. Screenplay is real good. With just match cuts, the story is unraveling. I wish the team creates more of this brainy movie stuff.

10/10.
