Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things

Even though the main story revolves around two pretty ‘interesting’ guys that have some pretty ‘interesting’ ideas this documentary does touch on a lot of topics that concern how we – the human populace -live and consume.

It does a particularly good job at highlighting how:

  • we are far too happy to throw away and replace even when we don’t need to
  • advertising can brainwash us into thinking we need things when we don’t
  • it’s sometimes better to be who we want to be rather than try and follow the rat race to survive.

This is not an endorsement of every idea that is expressed but it should have enough to make you think deeply about the world around you.
