There is no plot, no aim, no storyline.
5 May 2019 | by jezabelpoirierSee all my reviews

I created my account just so I could express how boring this movie is. I could have done a similar work just by walking around downtown and ask random questions to strangers (such as "What do you think of the future?), filming and jumbling those answers together. Most people interviewed were ordinary people.

The movie could have been engaging and interesting if it followed 2 or 3 people with radically different values and lifestyles and went deeper in their thoughts and everyday life, instead of juxtaposing dozens of people and featuring them for 2 to 20 minutes each.

You may as well just lay in bed for 1h30 and think about the future or just scroll through your Facebook newsfeed and you'll get a similar result / sentiment as this film would give you.
