A pointer concerning Viral (2021) Hot Docs 2021


VIRAL follows 7 people's lives on social media through 2020.

I am exactly precisely the wrong person for this film. I have zero interest in vloggers who stream their lives to the world as if it's a reality TV series. In a weird way I'm barely interested in my own life so I can't imagine what makes people think that anyone would care about their lives.

That said, if you are interested in how people present their lives on line, especially during a pandemic, this film is for you. Despite my bitching this is actually a pretty good look at 7 lives over the course of a year. While my dislike of the form kept me from fully connecting it was interesting to see ow some people live their lives.

Because of my bias going in, I am not reviewing this film but simply putting it out there for anyone who thinks this might be of interest to them
