Amazing adaptation of the original text to show the dangers of the greed of humanity and technological improvement without a clear set of rules. Perfect for anyone who red Faust as well as theatre and indie film lovers as the film's style is a combination of both.

A film showing a dystopian future caused by AI as well as the roots of it. Story takes the viewers through the journey with the protagonist Faust and slowly reveals the capacity of evil that human being is capable of doing.<br/><br/>Enjoyable but not an easy screening. Faust and Berkoff fans should enjoy it.

Besides the exceptional acting of Steven Berkoff and Glyn Dilley, the coherence to Goethe&#39;s Faust, the quality of the image and sound, the merge of postmodern and classical were pretty impressive.Equally intriguing was the political cue, especially in the scene with the video walls showing news of all around the world. The discussion -which was indeed a self-reference- and the tense between utopia and dystopia combined to this political aspect, opens a new interpretation on faustian intertextuality.In addition, the idea of setting the scenes theatrically like vivid artworks indicates successfully P. Humm&#39;s personal style and artwork and at the same time manages to show an achronical presence in faustian intertext, which differentiates this particular movie in both its point of view and its directing.Maybe this movie addresses more to an audience familiar to the book or to scholars but it could be an example of how we can see a complex text nowadays.
