The Human Surge (El auge del humano) Reviews

July 11, 2017
There are two bravura shots in The Human Surge... Otherwise, well, it's tough going.

There is something exasperating in the way it withholds the pleasures of film from its audience, allowing long stretches to unfold with no lighting and semi-audible dialogue.

Though the picture is admirable on a conceptual level, its execution is incoherent, interminable and a colossal strain on the eyes.

Just when you think you've got the movie pegged, it pulls a daring switch of perspective. While the thrill of that little coup is short-lived, it suggests that Mr. Williams may come up with something more substantial with his next feature.

This is a heckuva stimulating cinematic achievement for a relative newcomer. The Human Surge offers a shrewd commentary on the dissonance of technological connectivity and personal communication.

Surreal and wordlessly unsettling, Eduardo Williams' globe-crossing feature The Human Surge is intimate and pleasurably inscrutable.

Lacking in narrative or character (the film is all theme and no story), the payoff moments for all one's carefully invested attention are few and far between.
