Landscape With Invisible Hand — Cory Finley [Sundance ’23 Review]

February 2, 2023

Cory Finely’s Landscape With Invisible Hand is an innocuous, flimsy little sci-fi movie, bandying about high concepts and reasonably detailed world-building but resolutely refusing to engage with any of its ideas in a meaningful way. It’s a game of spot the metaphor — aliens as disruptive tech bros, reality TV escapades, haves vs have nots,  artistic integrity, etc. It wants to be a movie about the now, but it’s barely a sitcom. All it needs is a piped-in laugh track.
