Humanity's trancelike relationship with technology produces massive effects.
Director: Godfrey Reggio
Godfrey Reggio's symphony of pristine 4K images doesn't add up to one grand epiphany, but an intermittent cluster of small ones. show more
It's Glass who gives Visitors something like a structure, alternating between long, contemplative stretches and moments of ecstatic grandeur, like the crowd of sports fans who erupt in (extreme slow-motion) joy at some victory. show more
Non-narrative films can be opaque in deep ways. Visitors slips into pseudo-profundity. That said, I’d see it again. show more
So awful, that it I couldn't watch it. Super long takes done in extreme slow motion and no dialog.... at least there was no dialog for the first 15 minutes I could sit through before I turned it off. You could get the same effect by turning this movie into a Photo Book, that comes with a free CD of the soundtrack.
I assume the goal of the completely uninformative trailer is to make the potential viewer more curious and that curiosity would motivate them to watch the film. Well, it had the opposite of the desired effect on me. If the director is going to insult his audience with a trailer consisting of nothing but close-ups of child actors staring back at me from the other side of the camera lens, then my response is to simply not watch the film. So this review is of the trailer, and it gets the lowest possible score on the chart. The movie could be the greatest film ever created, but I - and most of the people who watch the trailer - will never know, because we'll never watch the film. Utter failure of marketing.
