Fantastic substantive material, though not catchy.
6 July 2015 | by bassinsonp904See all my reviews

As a member of Generation Y, it was fascinating for me to see a recent movie that thoroughly explores the long-term social impact of social media and the Internet in general. Though it appears this was yet *another* film that explores the various aspects of this second dimension of humanity from a removed perspective (the director, Dominic H. White, does not appear to have a bio page on IMDb, and it therefore cannot be determined if he is a member of Generation Y), it was a perspective that people need to see. Topics ranging from how hyper-connectivity counter-intuitively decreases the connection of everyday "real" life that we as humans are hard- wired to crave through millions of years of evolution, to the obsession with video games leading some to negligently let their own infant die from malnutrition, to the way today's children are being raised in a world they've never known without the Internet, this film has something for everyone. Though it serves as a dire warning against over-reliance on social media and the Internet in general, the (seemingly) endless possibilities for good are also addressed, though not in as thorough a manner as the problems facing us today as the ever-evolving realm of Cyberspace continues to seep into every crack of our everyday lives, leaving us to wonder, when, or if, it will ever stop.
