Reboot

Reboot ★★★½

The December Project: Film #98

A woman wakes up, unsure of who or where she is, with an iPhone glued to her hand. I read that synopsis, doubtlessly spruced up with typical PR language, some months back and laughed at how terrible it sounded. When the film's producer sent me an online screener for review, I was terrified it would be as bad as it sounded. It wasn't, thankfully: for all the silliness of its setup Reboot is a fine insight into our modern digital world, a perfectly paced and finely mounted techno-thriller with a damn strong cast and impressive independent production values.
