“If you are not paying for the product, then you are the product..”
The Social Dilemma takes you through the cons of social media, with real people from the industry explaining how their contributions have lost their original purpose, through a family in focus.
Verdict : 5/7 stars.
Vincent Kartheiser, who features in the film-within-the-film, ironically has no connections with social networks in any shape or form. He and his wife Alexis Bledel eschew all the trappings of Hollywood in favor of a simple living lifestyle.
Jeff Orlowski was a heavy Facebook user before making the film. He’s not now.
Premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
One of the subjects, Tristan Harris, is a college friend of director, Jeff Orlowski.
