A thought-provoking, and at-times creepy, bit of hands-on reportage.

For the most part, Bond is not the most effective fugitive.

Audience Reviews for Erasing David

Might be a good movie for those in the UK, but sucks for security in the US

An exercise in paranoia. This is a documentary about a man named David who decides to go "missing" for a month to see how easily he could be found. He leaves his 7 month pregnant wife at home alone with their 2 year old daughter to do this. What a star.
This whole movie felt kind of boring and actually a bit pointless. A bit hard to feel the suspense when the two guys hunting him have been paid - by him - to do so. It's not like there is going to be a shoot out at the end.
Amusingly enough, in the end he is "caught" by something obvious - not facebook, mobile phone, CCTV, credit card or any of the usual things people get paranoid over. Yet he still feels "data raped" at the end.
Yes, I agree, people need to have some common sense with the things they reveal, but I really get exasperated with people in general who seem to think all are out to get them and their "personal information" and this is just an indulgent 80 minutes of that non stop. I know it happens, but all this is going to do is make people who are so inclined even more paranoid and tiresome.
