Recommended if you don't know about Minimalism, otherwise not so much...

If you have not heard about the minimalism movement and feel curious about it I totally recommend this movie (available on Netflix), it could be eye-opening and inspiring for you.

However as a person who has read a few articles and watched a few videos on minimalism and consumerism issues, I found this documentary lacking in deep, new and engaging ideas. It felt more like a long promotional video for the book with interesting stories of people thrown in between.

The excerpt from president Carter's speech was the most interesting part to me, the message might not be new but it was delivered with clarity and strength.

Lacking

I really wanted to like this but it rubbed me the wrong way. The bros came off as egotist more than minimalist. My concern is that while they are perhaps trying to promote a lifestyle, they are move actively trying to promote themselves.

As experts that were featured in the documentary noted: consumerism threatens our mental health and environment. Instead of focusing on this compelling argument--the bros wanted to talk about their moms, previous corporate success, their very successful blog spot #theminimalist and book which is available for download on Amazon. I would have preferred a focus on the reasons for converting to a minimalist lifestyle rather than a fun memory book Josh and Ryan's Excellent Adventure.

Great idea, but lacks visual info.

There is not much in the documentary. They have documented their walkthroughs a little but that doesn't help the idea of minimalism.
