Critic Reviews

Liked
Cutting to the emotional core of what social media says about us, the result is as much a time capsule of our relationship to (and reliance upon) modern technology as it is a cutting-edge digital thriller.
— Peter Debruge (Variety)
Didn't Like
Searching is so smart about how we interact with computers that it's surprising how lame it is about moviemaking basics like characters and plot.
— Daniel Eagan (Film Journal International)
