Nerve ★★★

Ridiculous if mindlessly engaging zeitgeist cyber-thriller / social network nightmare. It's an online version of dares pushed to illogical extremes, where safety and sanity are recklessly compromised for cash rewards and celebrity status. Nerve doesn't really merit deep examination as it doesn't make much sense, but it rattles along at a fair pace, and for me, the highlight here is the glossy visual style as New York City is given a dreamlike neon-lit sci-fi sheen makeover.
