SO Unreal (2023) Fantastic Fest

Narrated by Debbie Harry this is  look the history of cyber cinema and how technology was viewed over the years.  Interesting to a point, I’m not certain that the film adds up to much.

More essay than documentary this is a film that is going to have any well versed film fan arguing with the screen. This is very much Amanda Kramer’s take on things and while that’s all well and good, I’m not certain that she is always right. I kept talking to the screen making the people around me shush me for much of it’s running time.

I suspect that part of the problem is the narration which is delivered in a low key way that is intentionally mechanical. I initially thought it was a machine voice and then I saw Harry’s name.

While not bad, it’s just not that interesting.
