SXSW '12 Film Review: Welcome to the Machine

Link, Movies

I reviewed Avi Zev Weider’s Welcome to the Machine, a documentary about humanity’s relationship to technology, over at Heeb Magazine:

Weider refuses to make up his mind about what kind of a film he is making. The film weaves multiple talking-head narratives with the story of the filmmaker’s family, but none rise to the occasion of actually telling a story. The film serves as a decent taste of the teachings of its characters, but nothing more.
