The Seventh Continent

The Seventh Continent ★★★½

The Seventh Continent is a critique on modern society, about how it has led middle-class individuals and families to strive for goals, yet provides nothing when they get there. The movie presents the mundanity of everyday life with little dialogue, it simply allows us to experience the boredom and cyclical events alongside the characters. While it is a good and important film, to me, the worldview is a bit overly pessimistic. I feel like there should have been some glimmer of hope, however faint, for it to be truly great.
