Human Resources

It’s a documentary about Social Control, examining the history, the philosophy and ultimately the pathology of elite power.

Overall, Human Resources is rough around the edges but still overloaded with gems. Set aside some time to digest this – and take notes.

Scott Noble does an admirable job of fitting ten hours of material into two. He gives the space to all the people he interviews… there’s a metric ton of ideas here and he lets almost all of them unfold and breathe at their own pace.
The footage itself is very low-fi and some of the interviews feel like they drag on for too long, or wander in circles. Impressively, those moments are few and far between.

Noble can’t cover everything, but the scope of this movie alone makes it the most ambitious entry in this strange genre so far, more complete than The Century of the Self and less hysterical than the Zeitgeist franchise.
