Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid Goes West ★★★★

This is being sold as a comedy, and there are some laughs, albeit very uncomfortable ones. This should be seen as a psychological/techno thriller. Never once are you made to feel comfortable with what's playing out on screen. It's not a movie about friendship, but about the dangers of social media and how it allows us to manufacture our images to be something we are not. And also serves as a warning that we can get so sucked into the illusion that we start to think it's real. That everyone else has such a better life than you. It's so sick. Just like Ingrid. She went west to chase a delusion. And we are too.
