I really loved the subtlety in this film. The lead actor was great. The whole world set up was masterfully done without over explanation. It was very beautiful, artful and a bit thought provoking.

Love the story, felt it could have been done better and it was too slow.

It's pretty much like a feature length black mirror episode focusing on a dystopian near-future where celebrity obsession has gone too far. Very well filmed and the acting is captivating. Totally worth the watch.

It was a very solid premise and extremely good concept but it was incredibly slow for me all the way through. I agree with the one reviewer that it was very Black Mirror in style.
