Critics reviews

I’d seen the movie about a decade ago and found it just as tiring this time around; it has a lot of bulleted thesis points and low-budget production-design ideas and no clue as to how to use perspective or hold an audience’s attention. Stanley is exhaustively caught up in close-ups of decrepit kitchen gadgets, TV screens, and glowing robotic eyes, and I’ll give a prize to anyone who can figure out the floor plan of the junkyard-futuristic home where more than two-thirds of the movie is set.

Now that the incredible Lost Soul: The Doomed Story of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau floats in the Netflix-sphere, viewing Hardware today is a bittersweet experience. It’s difficult not to see the mysterious, wandering junker in the psychedelic red desert, collecting and repurposing machinery, as Stanley himself.
