Getting paid to ... do nothing(?)
15 May 2021 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I do wonder - if everyone was following everyone and we liked each other posts ... I mean it would almost be impossible to see millions of post on a daily basis ... but what would that do to the machinery and to those who are being called "influencers"? A definition and word many of them seem to dislike themselves as this is showing.

The next question one might have concerning this documentary: does the end result and what it shows us excuse the way it is achieved? As someone else already noted, the way the filmmaker (and star of this) goes about asking people and how he treats many of them - at least the bits he is showing us, makes you wonder ... because it is super creepy and makes one feel very uncomfortable! Why would anyone give away the adress of Selena Gomez - especially Danny Trejo? It's also strange that he pixilates the first two people we see here, but almost no one else for the rest of the movie ... and there seem to be some secretly filmed sequences here to say the least.

If you watch this to find out how to get more followers .. well you won't get that. If you watch it to become more aware of ... whatever is happening online ... you might get a few things answered. As I already stated, many things that are being done here, go against almost everything I morally can accept - but it seems to be a way to get either certain things done or show character traits (by accident or not) that will probably make you sick ...
