Documentary
While it has an intriguing premise, Surviving Progress—a documentary about humanity’s ascent and descent due to technology and other advances—is not as interesting as it could be. Most interviewees come off as long-winded and pretentious, and anything they may have to say gets lost as a result. On a technical level, this documentary is stunning; everything looks sharp and crisp. An elegant style cannot save a documentary, though, and this is yet another example of an interesting premise getting squandered. This is quite a shame, as this topic should be exceedingly thought-provoking.
