Mini-Review: Disconnect

A contemplative ensemble piece set in today’s tech-savvy world.

Disconnect is a flawed narrative of characters whose lives are in one way or another connected either by chance or by technology. It explores the new ways of building relationships with people nowadays through the use of the internet, but more importantly it also brings up the dangers that follow it. Identity theft, child pornography, bullying – these are issues brought up by the media from time to time, but they’ve never been discussed in great detail in a feature film; at least from my knowledge. The film has its hiccups in the story, but I have a penchant for certain types of presentation and director Henry Alex Rubin’s style fits right in with one of them.

GRADE: B
