Disconnect | Chicago Reader


Rated R 115 minutes 2013

This dour would-be art movie posits that social media might be alienating people from each other rather than bringing them together. (Spoiler alert: the title is a metaphor.) The interlocking story lines involve a TV news reporter investigating an online child pornography ring, a young married couple whose financial information gets stolen by a hacker, and a lonely high schooler who falls prey to an Internet scam. Like many bad student filmmakers, director Henry Alex Rubin identifies his thesis early on, then hammers it home at every chance he gets. Not only is the film unsubtle, it's mirthless; rather than provoke serious thought, Rubin just wants to make people feel bad. With Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, and Alexander Skarsgard.
