A pretentious repeat of previous doco and talks
How can 50 minutes seem so long? Just when I thought these guys couldn’t become anymore pretentious, they go and one-up themselves.
They have somehow released a clone of their previous documentary and TED talks. They both stand and talk more about themselves and their lives than they do anything resembling minimalism. It’s an astounding level of self-indulgent detail. This means I’m now equipped with more knowledge of the drinking habits of Joshua’s dead Mother (she preferred Milwaukee’s Best beer) than I do about the minimalism movement itself.
I was motivated to declutter my place prior to watching this. Now I feel like holding onto everything just out of spite for these guys and the way they presented this “documentary”. I use the term “documentary” very loosely, because this mostly resembles some kind of ad for themselves and their blog than it does anything else.
Throw one item out each day for 30 days and see how it feels. There, I saved you the trouble of enduring this.
This is a documentary about Joshua and Ryan – not about minimalism; pretentious
If you want to learn what minimalism is or how it can help you, you won’t get this from this documentary. This feels like the rehash of the first one, and it’s basically a retelling of the TED talk that you can find on YouTube. There is nearly nothing new of substance in here, unfortunately.
The documentary starts by selling us a premise of “you’ll learn why less is more but for that, you need to learn our story first”. But the fact is we never get past their story, I was listening through stories of Josh and Ryan and was waiting for the “actual documentary” to start. But it never starts.
It touches multiple issues, it feels like it lacks substance and direction. This is a documentary about Joshua and Ryan – not about minimalism, keep that in mind.
The camera work and the choice of secondary guests is great, and I wanted to see more of that and more of them. Josh and Ryan, despite being prominent figures in the minimalism scene, are not relatable for most viewers.
Unfortunately, the criticisms from the first document, are even truer in this one and both Josh and Ryan often feel like they are humble bragging their wealth, six figures, their cars, or houses and telling us how awesome it is when you decide not to have it. I believe they are honest and if I ever have as much as they – I will try to live within my means. It feels very pretentious.
While I understand the message – don’t buy a BMW on credit if you can’t afford it – most people don’t have the luxury of NOT taking debt to own a house or a flat.
If you wish to learn about minimalism: I highly recommend Matt D’Avella’s YouTube channel (he is “behind the camera” in this one), the TED talk by The Minimalists or even the first documentary, not this one.
