Trivia

The film's producer met with Elizabeth Holmes early in development, before criminal charges were filed, to determine whether she could be interviewed for the film. Ultimately the director decided he wanted to portray how Holmes carefully crafted Theranos and her own image to be seen by the public, up until the story unraveled. Accordingly, aside from brief footage from her deposition, all footage of Holmes seen in the film is from archival material from before she was charged, most of it her own commissioned promotional video for Theranos. Alex Gibney remarked "She made the documentary she wanted me to invest in and I used it to a different purpose." See more »

Important story, but unnecessarily long, repetitive, and overstylized
21 March 2019 | by blakekhodgesSee all my reviews

Grateful to see this story told, but the documentary is unnecessarily long, repetitive, and overstylized to make up for it.
