    If you ever dated a possessive person this film will hit all the levels of familiarity. It’s really spelled out perfectly and Tierney does a strong job portraying it. What really works about the film is the depiction never seems to go over the top, it’s the quiet almost loving nature of her obsession that makes it the most scary.

    Let me get this out the way, this doc is absolutely awful. It’s the equivalent of “Say no to drugs” campaign infomercials they had in the ’80s. Alarmist, fear-mongering (as it criticizes fear-mongering) and is built to be a cheap confessional for a bunch of White people who got rich off of social media and are now promoting themselves as ethical tech folks cause suddenly they see the light. Rubbish. I don’t see them giving their fortunes back cause they…
