    ★★★★½

    What an awesome film. Amazing piece of narrative scripting here. It’s just so well written and paced from a dramatic perspective and then cinematically is captured with precision.

Alarmist, fear-mongering (as it criticizes fear-mongering) and is built to be a cheap confessional for a bunch of White people who got rich off of social media and are now promoting themselves as ethical tech folks cause suddenly they see the light. Rubbish. I don’t see them giving their fortunes back cause they…
