Renton47's rating of the film Human Flow

Precisely because it aims to capture the insurmountable, Flow is an essential visual document. It imagines something that in text remains unfathomable, therefore alien and unreal. Because this grasp is so large it is intimately removed, the moments of human connection few and far. It might be viewed with Cameraperson for sense of contrast; its humanitarian voices are ineffectual to these images.
