Slow, Resonant, Relevant, Dizzying, Clever

See it if You are interested in tech, the future of tech and maybe if you listed to Pivot podcast. (and are a little worried about Meta, Elon...)

Don't see it if You don't like to look through the looking glass

Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking

Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Relevant

See it if you want to rock your brain about seeing how powerful an Alexa like product can do much to destroy humanity while trying to be good.

Don't see it if you aren't ready to not be "spoon fed" from a flawed and slow-starting piece. Or aren't ready for some heartbreak.

Slow, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Quirky, Confusing

See it if you want to ponder the negative effects that technology can have on society. Solid effort by the cast with interesting set.

Don't see it if you do not want to drown in a story that could be told in a more efficient manner.

Thought-provoking, Meandering, Provocative, Relevant, Confusing

See it if you'd enjoy an intermittently interesting exploration of interplay and clash between technology and humanity amidst a messy unfocused play.

Don't see it if you need coherence and developed characters. Some engaging moments but overall too long, too confusing, and with cringy musical interludes.

Slow, Disappointing, Ambitious, Confusing

See it if a valiant effort to do a futuristic commentary on our current age, but it misses the mark.

Don't see it if you have low tolerance for trying to piece together a coherent story from incoherent bits. The 90 minutes felt like hours.

"The art of dystopian literature can be found in the pathway one suggests from the world of today, and Hartman charts one that is eminently plausible. It involves crushing debt legally transformed into a new age of indentured servitude, with free citizens and their consumer choices becoming the product harvested and sold by multinational tech firms (this part is already true)."

Time and again, stories about what the future holds for technology and humanity have enthralled audiences—think of the rabid followings for The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, produced 50 years apart. But whereas those TV shows grabbed viewers with suspense, plot twists and amusing allegory, New Golden Age mainly offers talking. More than three-quarters of its run time is occupied by one long scene, and it consists mostly of people standing around talking. That tedium outweighs any emotional reaction that Karen Hartman’s Facebook-run-amok scenario may elicit.
