I don't often feel the urge to leave reviews, but I felt I ought to for this.
The artwork, the music, basically everything was great except for one critical fault that I cannot ignore: The meaning.
Despite all the imagery, despite all the symbolism, this video felt utterly devoid of any real meaning. If I had to ascribe any political stance, I'd call this some kind of anarcho-primitivist screed written by someone who wishes they weren't vaccinated as a child.
Speaking of vaccines, there were a few positive aspects of modern society (or aspects that COULD be positive if properly utilized) that were seemingly presented as wholly negative. If anything, the whole thing felt tediously hopeless, droning on and on about how awful the world is with some kind of pseudo-spiritualist ending tacked on about how there's totally hope in the end, guys.
Throughout the entire video, there was never any sign that any of this could be changed or improved in any way. In spite of this, the ending seems to insist the opposite; that we really can fix it! Or, rather, it seemed more like it would fix itself. Still running counter to the rest of the video.
After the five minute mark, I regularly found myself checking how much longer the video was because I was ready for it to be over.
Mr. Arsov, you're pretentious as hell. You seem like you stand around in modern art museums going "Hmm." at everything. You probably sit around all day thinking about how much smarter than the rest of humanity you are. It's likely that if I ever met you, I would do my best to not have to talk to you ever again.
The sheer work put into this earns it 1.5 stars, but the writing and meaning (or lack thereof) fell so flat that I can't go any higher.
Vaccinate your fucking children.
