my top 5 tech movies
I recently binged watched Maniac on Netflix over about 3 days and it got me really inspired to consider my favourite tech movies or series and hence the reason for this blog article. It’s really just an excuse to document them in case I forget but if you’re reading this and you discover something new, well that’s a great bonus too.
I love these futurist flicks because of the combination of their storyline and amazing art direction. Their storylines get me thinking about culture in fresh ways. I feel like we are living in a time of huge change where we are seeing culture shift quickly because of new technological developments and in many ways these drama’s help us to anchor ourselves in the moment to reflect on what is and what could be.
Although these stories are fictional, they give us insight into what could be, helping us to prepare for the social, ethical and cultural questions coming our way.
Anyway, if you have seen any of these flicks before or after this blog article I’d love to hear why in the comments section.
