Unfriended: Dark Web ★★★

nasty, and useless as any kind of commentary on the economy of spectacle and suffering, but still riveting on the level of construction and filmmaking, using the laptop screen as less a claustrophobic conceit than a playground for informatic and visual manipulations. this might just be a needlessly cruel remonstration of its own audience, but goddamn if it isn't the most baroque and tightly controlled possible execution of that (rather myopic) subgenre of exploitation
