Cam (2018, D: Goldhaber) S: Madeline Brewer -- Netflix





From Blumhouse, the producer of GET OUT and UPGRADE comes CAM - a technology-driven psychological thriller set in the world of webcam porn starring Madeline Brewer (Handmaid's Tale).

It follows Alice, an ambitious camgirl, who one day discovers she's been replaced on her show with an exact replica of herself. As this copy begins to push the boundaries of Alice's internet identity, the control that Alice has over her life, and the men in it, vanishes. While she struggles to regain what she's lost, she slowly finds herself drawn back to her show and to the mysterious person who has taken her place.

Been seeing a lot of buzz on this over the last few days. It dropped on Netflix on Friday.

I thought it wasn't too bad but does leave some unanswered questions.

Yup. I enjoyed it until I didn't understand WTF was actually going on with the end/explanation. I mean I get it... but I don't think it was explained enough. I was kind of tired when watching so maybe I missed something.

Caught this last nite. For a cheapie little technothriller, this was really well done. DTV/Cable production values but they made the most out of them.

I've seen Madeline Brewer before in Orange Is The New Black, Black Mirror, and A Handmaid's Tale, and she was really good in all of them, but she completely carried this movie. If she didn't work, the movie wouldn't have worked, and she KILLED it. Amazing performance. The way she conveyed so much emotion using her eyes alone was revelatory. And she is ridiculously freakin' sexy.

Watched this last night also. I have the exact opposite reaction you have unfortunately. I didn't care for it at all.

Fantastic performance from Madeline Brewer.

Not all of the film's moving parts work but when they do, it's an alluring & slimy experience.
