    Anne at 13,000 Ft.

    ★★★

    I get the A Woman Under the Influence comparisons, but I think if you try to hold this movie up to that standard it’s not going to stand very tall since what Cassavetes was aiming for had larger reach. But if you hold this film to its own standards it def can sit on its own merits. Lovely lead performance and a committed cinematic concept that for me isnt necessarily the right one (I will get to that later) but…

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…
