Ambitious, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if fan of SITI and missed this piece.

Don't see it if like a linear story. this is repetitive and more performance-theatre. need a background on McCluhan would be helpful.

Dizzying, Indulgent, Excruciating, Dated, Cliched

See it if you are interested an outdated and very loud commentary on technology.

Don't see it if you are not interested a confusing and excruciating presentation on complicated ideas unfortunately reduced to a semi Luddite level. Read more
