  • I went into their documentary excited, hoping it would be like Marie Kondo. It made me so minimalist, I gave little to no fuck about the empty documentary. Like, sure, I liked them during their tedtalk days but they really need some substance and fresh new specific idea to approach minimalism already if they want to make a new documentary, if not, then just why bother.

  • Marie Kondo's take on decluttering (which is a subsection of minimalism) is milder and more of a "breath of fresh air." this documentary however feels so intense, forced and culty lmao

  • This minimalist trend is one of biggest BS I've ever seen in recent years. SLworldsrs go: "Look at my minimalist closet", and the guys shows like 50 shirts, 30 pairs of shoes, 25 pairs of pants... Dude, if you're a minimalist, you would 7 shirts, two pairs of shoes and two pairs of shoes. dnevom

  • This wasn’t a doco about minimalism it was a doco about The Minimalists in identical terms as the last doco!! So boring and disappointing. LOVED your video to know I’m not alone in my disappointment. I recommend the documentary The True Cost if you want to learn more about the dangers of fast fashion and consumerism generally, and of course Marie Kondo for a how to of minimalism.

  • It reminds me of the saying "money doesn't buy happiness". It comes across as patronizing and happiness isn't that simple. If you need a doctor, shelter, food, etc., yes money can buy happiness. Minimalism can cross into the same propaganda, excusing the decline in wages and assets. The movement became popular because younger generations are facing lower standards of living than previous decades.
