Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Essential? Maybe. Powerful ? For sure! Too late? Sadly probably. Yup the latest documentary from Netflix (whose fact based films are often far superior to their scripted originals) arrived with the stamp of “Must Watch” written all over it but, in truth, whilst it’s message is strong if there’s anyone left out there that DOESN’T think social media is bad for them then I doubt this will change anything! Yes the content here is super scary but the direction of the film is equally strong and the impact significant… staying with you long after you turn it off.
Best Bit: Oh god it’s THAT detailed!
