    ★★★★

    A very cynical take on social media that would fit well in the controversial season 5 of Black Mirror. As an insecure individual who envies the kind of attention people get on social media, it's perhaps due to that bitterness that led me to appreciate films that highlight the superficiality of the platform users. There's a comfort being told that becoming the most popular person online isn't necessarily the most important thing in life. Add that to the fact that…
