I Watched A Documentary Movie: Less Is Now


I’m interested in social issues and the self-help culture, which is why I watch a lot of documentaries. As I wrote about minimalism, I found out that “The Minimalists: Less Is Now” came out last year.


“The film’s title was inspired by the popular maxim “Less is more,” popularized by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), who used this aphorism to describe his design aesthetic; his tactic was one of arranging the necessary components of a building to create an impression of extreme simplicity. The Minimalists have reworked this phrase to create a sense of urgency for today’s consumer culture: now is the time for less.”

The movie surprised and shocked me at the same time. Even though the movie is not new, I decided to write a review. I invite you to enjoy my thoughts: “The minimalists: Less is now—An Honest Review.”

By the way, although this documentary is a great example of a bad movie, I still recommend watching it. To understand how not to act when you are already successful. After all, the heroes of the movie do everything they can to prove how wonderful and happy people are. I don’t know if it’s wise to do so. Why prove to everyone that you feel better than others? Admittedly, when I was young and stupid, I also tried to prove to everyone that I’m perfect and my philosophy is the most correct, but now I believe in a philosophy that combines all positive philosophies. So sometimes I go for minimalism, and sometimes I’m a maximalist. For example, in design, I like minimalism, and when I want to write a good article, I’m forced to use maximum words, otherwise, it will be difficult to reveal the idea. That is why I carefully watch people who promote only one minimalism or maximalism.
