Here are some press on The Rise of the Synths:
“Carpenter 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 segments”. – The Guardian
“There is something in this fascinating documentary that could be dystopia, the one that made the success of an episode like San Junipero of Black Mirror”. – Les InRocks
“This has more entertainment potential than some fictional stories released this year”. – /Film
“Directed by applying content to the form (…), avoiding the classical boring talking heads documentary”. – Contraplano
“It will delight music lovers and fans of synthesizers… but also the 80s nostalgics”. – Cinemania
“Hits 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
“It builds a (…) manifesto that has in its epicenter the director of ‘The Thing’, which is too awesome to overlook”. – Espinof
“A narrative and audiovisual achievement… This movie smells like popcorn… and passion”. – Heraldo
