Pompeii

Pompeii

A very rare occasion where a movie that deals solely with social media addiction actually gets it right for the most part. Almost the entirety of the story is told through phone screens, and while it reaches an admittedly bombastic part at the end it feels authentic for much of its short runtime. However, I do wish we get more of the character beyond the phone screen and actually going about their life in the real world. But flaws aside, a great look at the self-conscious fear and sadness that comes from being chronically online.
