insightful and revealing
3 August 2014 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

Technology makes it easier than ever to find information, and yet more difficult than ever to determine the truth. With so many sources of information and ways for data streams to be manipulated, technology becomes as much a trap as it is a solution. In Trap Street, a young man uses electronic gadgets to earn extra cash as well as an edge in the dating scene. Through the use of the gadgets he also invites some unwelcome company. Falling deeper for a mysterious woman, he finds it increasingly difficult to turn away from what he wants to know and feel. This insightful and revealing film explores issues involving the use of surveillance technologies. While lacking in depth, it is intriguingly portrayed and in a non-judgmental manner that allows the audience to come to their own conclusions. Seen at the 2014 Miami International Film Festival.
