What if phones, but too much? the movie. JOKER but with YouTube fame.

It pains me to write this review. I wanted to like this so bad, but it drips in fake deep scenarios and is a little too on the nose. Will there ever be a GOOD movie about social media and influencer culture? (Probably not given the shallow source material….)

On the bright side, Devonté Hynes’ score soars over the film, his second score with director Gia Coppola. As a big Gia Coppola fan, I have to say… just watch PALO ALTO (2013) again instead.

It’s available to rent on VOD.
