Cinetrii Traces Artistic Lineage in Film

Yesterday, we discovered Netflix’s mind-reading prototype called Mindflix. Like something out of a science fiction film, Mindflix’s sensors basically tap into your brain in order to recommend something for you to watch. Now, since this technology is not yet available on the market at this time, you might be looking for a little help in a more realistic sense. This is where Cinetrii comes in. The site connects you with films based on mentions of related work in film critic reviews. By tracing artistic lineage in film, it searches quotes from critics that compare a film in question to others that are similar or are influencers. Yes, it is a very specific type of curatorial help in navigating you towards similar films if you already know your tastes. Even if mainstream film critics aren’t necessarily your top source for discovery, why not at least give it a try and possibly uncover something new! We tried it out with our recent favorite "The Love Witch" and the suggestions were all pretty spot on recommendations! Looks like we've got a list of new films to watch! Fancy a try? Read more about Cinetrii over on Gizmodo!
