This is a fantastic commentary on social media and the cloud...the thin line we tread between privacy and being completely exposed. It delivers on all fronts and definitely lives up to the marketing campaign pushing how "graphic" it is. Perhaps some parts were a little obnoxious and overly self-aware but wow was it a fun experience. See this in a good theater with proper speakers and you won't be disappointed.
