Sunspring full movie review - The start of a new renaissance
As we start to get closer to algorithmic technology in our lives, we have to figure out how it's going to take place in the creative field.
We might think of technology and robots as a separate entity but in the end they are based from us. We have finally began to teach technology to be creative and this short is the equivalent of a child's first semi- coherent drawing. It has it's dialogue flaws, of course, sometimes things don't make sense or feel a bit wonky but it doesn't really matter, those flaws actually have a certain degree of charm to them. This might be the beginning of a new short lived genre I would like to call "algorithmic surrealism cinema"; something similar to the short Italian white telephone cinema movement that emerged after WWII. I believe this will be one of the most influential pieces of cinema in the years to come. It's the start of a new renaissance.
