The Circle (2017)

Updated: Jul 31, 2019

This starts well with a slow increasingly sinister build that feels like a spritzed up Hollywood version of a Black Mirror episode. Lots of reference to the current crop of tech giants and paranoia over privacy and big data. It stumbles into Truman Show territory too, but more voluntary. It’s not really as good as either of those, but Watson is pretty good and it’s always fun to watch Hanks play the bad guy. Social media is taking over, watch out folks!
