The Circle (2017)
A young tech worker takes a job at a powerful Internet corporation, quickly rises up the company's ranks, and soon finds herself in a perilous situation concerning privacy, surveillance and freedom. She comes to learn that her decisions and actions will determine the future of humanity.
Terrible acting, screenplay and direction.
Memorable, crazy movie
Very interesting film. Was caught on the premise when seeing the trailer but unsure as to what the outcome would be for the showing. As it turns out, it was a very good film.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
An interesting movie about the necessity to control everyone in a society more and more attached to the web. On one side the ideal of a perfect democracy and transparency, on the other the abuse of control and violation of privacy. It is a well done movie and an opportunity to think about the world in which we are living, but also the direction that we are taking, sometimes loosing the sense of the reality. Emma Watson is always a great actress, the plot is good, the idea original. I liked it.
I get the premise. How much can social technology influence our society and how good intentions go bad. The plot is so far fetched that audience has to ignore the gross ignorance of the characters despite their tremendous technical competence which just doesn't gel. Big names in this film can't save it..
Emma Watson delivers some Bad acting. The story could have been interesting but is extremely boring.
All I can say is don't read the book 1st otherwise it will be even worse. Poor acting and they have removed so much from the book that most of it makes no sense whatsoever. Emma Watson's character is unlikable and you have no sympathy for her. Even Tom Hanks can't improve the overall movie and the only sadness is this was Bill Paxtons last film, he deserved so much better. Do yourself a favour, read the book (which is pretty good) and steer a million miles away from this car crash of an event. Ironic that was only shown on Netflix's in the UK (did not get a cinema release) as would probably have been quite good as a mini series where they could have explained the backgrounds better.
