Here are some press on The Rise of the Synths:

โ€œCarpenter is employed as a sensei-like narrator, recording his observations on to a cassette tape to be taken back in time by a Gosling-type pretty-boy street punk driving a DeLorean, in a series of impressively produced interstitial segmentsโ€. – The Guardian

โ€œThere is something in this fascinating documentary that could be dystopia, the one that made the success of an episode like San Junipero of Black Mirrorโ€. – Les InRocks

โ€œThis has more entertainment potential than some fictional stories released this yearโ€. – /Film

โ€œDirected by applying content to the form (โ€ฆ), avoiding the classical boring talking heads documentaryโ€. – Contraplano

โ€œIt will delight music lovers and fans of synthesizersโ€ฆ but also the 80s nostalgicsโ€. – Cinemania

โ€œHits all the right notes in terms of why and how the music and iconic imagery appeals – even to those who weren’t born in the 70s or 80s.” – ForeverSynth

โ€œIt builds a (โ€ฆ) manifesto that has in its epicenter the director of โ€˜The Thingโ€™, which is too awesome to overlookโ€. – Espinof

โ€œA narrative and audiovisual achievementโ€ฆ This movie smells like popcornโ€ฆ and passion”. – Heraldo
