Storyline

Science fiction has long anticipated the rise of machine intelligence. Today, a new generation of self-learning computers is reshaping every aspect of our lives. Incomprehensible amounts of data are being collected, interpreted, and fed back to us in a tsunami of apps, smart devices, and targeted advertisements. Virtually every industry on earth is feeling this transformation, from job automation to medical diagnostics, from elections to battlefield weapons. Do You Trust This Computer? explores the promises and perils of this developing era. Will A.I. usher in an age of unprecedented potential, or prove to be our final invention?

is this art?
8 April 2018 | by muellschoeneSee all my reviews

It's comes across like a series of animated memes. Distracting moving images without informational content are interrupting a senseless string of short aphorisms spoken by various actors of the industry. The required and expected attention span of the target audience is about 10 seconds. That's when the beat changes. bam bambam bam bam bambam.

I don't get the idea behind the piece. It's not at all informational - so it can't claim the label 'documentary'.

Is it trying to be a video opera in seventeen thousands acts?

Instead of enlightening the viewer it's aiming to create emotions. As such it might claim the label "piece of art".

But as long as the director sells it as a documentary it gets 2 stars out of 10 from me. 2 instead of 1. Because apparently, he put in some effort to collect what you might call "interviews". It's a real shame that someone with that kind of access to the industry players doesn't create a more intelligent film with his material.
