"Control is an illusion"

 

In addition, to the accurate portrait of society, Mr. Robot aims to show us the search for control of its habitants.

Who would thought that a show that disguises as a geeky-technical type could reveal great insights on the present world?

In fact, displaying the deeps of power, the web of geopolitics and just simply, the consequences of our digital revolution, Mr. Robot is a must if you want to expand your mind into reality.

Mr. Robot introduces you to the chess match between Control and Power.

A society of Elliots, Darlenes, Angelas, even Doms, as every citizen of this world aims to have the control of its goals, decisions, dreams.

But, in a Consumerism Paradise such as today, Control is an illusion.

MR shows us a society of consumers of new drugs shape as likes, retweets, apps, saves and favorites that fill the artificial feelings of the people.

Dictate by the hands of the owners of corporations, governments, and armies.

To sum up, give me a massive social network and we will control the world.

We warn you, you will open your eyes with MR.

So, not your typical show, we told you.

Stylish shots and, frames that enhance the disconnection of its characters + society, as well as, the clever use of darkness make worth the ride.

And, if you want a free lesson on filming, take a shot on the style of Sam Esmail's Mr. Robot.

BTW, crisp hack sequences and opening titles.

(Psst… a masterpiece, get on it).

Ok, we got the likable character, the plot (become a hacker, save the world, down with savage capitalism (?)), gorgeous shots and camera work.

However, what is missing?

Well, the on-point sound edition.

And, MR keeps on it with an engaging soundtrack by Mac Quayle (Great for your computers gigs).
