Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film Human Flow

A lot of great movies have been made about global migration. Despite having a bigger budget and slicker footage, this is not one of them. Both documentary and subject demand better editing. Seriously, I felt like I was at a test screening and someone forgot to give me a feedback card. The movie's dull reliance on talking heads explanation also distrusts and undercuts the truth of its images.
