What's the focus?
12 February 2019 | by clk264-649-716463See all my reviews

As a male who used Bumble, Tinder, and coffee meets bagel, I can say that the portion of this documentary that focuses on using those apps is fairly accurate. A lot of the times, women just wanted to meet up to hook up, and I'm sure men do as well. That part was well done, however that was only a small portion. The rest of the film focused mainly on making men look like idiots and pigs, I'm not sure if the director specifically chose men who were borderline brain-dead, but, it was almost insulting to see that every man in this documentary had the speech pattern of Someone in a coma. Nearly every woman tells a story about how men treated them badly or how men treated them disrespectful. There is a brief interview with me sociologist at Tinder, where, for some reason, they try to get her to say that the app is used for hooking up. I'm not really quite sure what that scene was supposed to portray, but, it really didn't fit the flow of the film. I don't really know what the focus of the film was supposed to be, but, it briefly talks about the history of dating apps, Then talks to college students about how they use the app, then talks to mainly women about horror stories when using the app, and then female empowerment with using the apps. I'm not quite sure what the filmmaker was trying to convey, but, that's what I gathered from it. It's worth watching, don't get me wrong, but it seems like the filmmaker was trying to do a feminist documentary with the subject being about using hook up apps.
