dionysus67's rating of the film Family Romance, LLC

What rescues Herzog's latest take on the irrevocable wave of simulated society, is the wise aesthetic decision to approximate documentary style. Thus, the entire Japanese cast acts as non-dramatically as possible and the camera turns to a neutral observer. Thus, uncanny imagery, as in the robot-fish aquarium, recalls Herzog at his best. Ishii is superb and the finale warmly underlines humanity's deficit of intimacy.
