Picture Character (2019) Tribeca 2019
There is no doubt that the use of the little symbols is growing exponentially everyday. And you'e probably wondered where they come from. Covering everything from their history, to the way they are created and "regulated" to the debate about whether they should be considered a new pictorial language is here. Its breezily told and moves like the wind.
How you react to this film will entirely depend upon how interested you are in the creation and use of emojis. If you love them then this film is going to be manna from heaven , if not this this going to be little more than an extended puff piece. For me this was really interesting up to a point but then it kind of ran out of steam because for me there simply isn't that much interest. I didn't feel the need to know this much about the emojis.
You will forgive the lack of discussion but there really isn't a lot to say other than if the little characters interest you by all means see the film.
