Stern's screenplay touches a nerve-the audience is nodding their heads at the outset of each of the stories and Rubin's excellent cast perfectly embody these familiar, everyday characters whose lives are suddenly upended.

Disconnect turns out to have a complicated view of life in the digital age. Rising to scenes of real intimacy and insight, the movie is stimulating, and, at times, touching.

Disconnect is disturbing and haunting, but most of all, it's an immensely compelling and taut thriller.

While "Disconnect" may not offer anything new to the argument against the overuse of technology, it remains a well-made film with strong performances from the entire cast.

...long after Rubin's absorbing menu of issues intersect in a sparkling and unpredictable climax, his film likely will leave you thinking about much of what you've witnessed.

A powerful tale about the dangers of spending a lifetime online or losing one's self to online fantasies or ideals.

It doesn't all work -- and it sometimes feels like a much smarter take on Paul Haggis' Crash -- but enough of it works to make it a worthwhile film.

There's no way to see this film and not be concerned each time an electronic device is used. That kind of visceral reaction is what makes the film so disturbingly brilliant.

A dramatic triptych of loosely connected stories that mostly avoids the pitfalls of an easy target with solid work from all involved.

It's left to the actors to make up for the gaffes, and they're definitely up to the task.

Even in the heightened awareness of a post- age (and its ), Disconnect is naturally gripping.

As cautionary tales go, "Disconnect" is a pretty good one, but it's not really a whole lot more than that.

In the sobering drama Disconnect, technology is one of the culprits that separate people from each other - but not the only one.

A penetrating examination of who we are as a people and culture living in the advanced electronic age of the here and now—a place as potentially dangerous and harmful as it is radically convenient.

...a movie with mounting tension, not an easy one to watch, that ends with a thud...up until the last five minutes, though, this is thoroughly engrossing.
