User Reviews

 
Disturbingly relevant AND eye opening!
23 December 2019 | by tquillaSee all my reviews

This movie has me pondering every product I use now. Excellent storytelling. Fantastic casting. I even loved how some of the real characters were actually in the film as well. Good cinematography. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because it was slow in some parts. Overall, a must see that hopefully changes your life.
