Objectified: A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit

Have waited a long time to watch this. Now that it has become available, I can only recommend it. Although the after taste felt something like this:

It strives to cover just about every possible facet of industrial design, but with a 75 minute running time, there are a lot of ideas that don’t quite get all the attention that they deserve. Which is not to say this isn’t a fascinating documentary, only that it flies by so fast that it’s hard to grasp and fully digest all of the questions being asked.

Which consequently asks for a re-watch soon and worth the watch ‘cause…

Objectified is a movie that will open your mind to the hidden world of design that influences virtually every aspect of our lives. Gary Hustwit has once again taken a mundane concept and made something both compelling and artistic out of it.
