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

David Bond is a citizen of the United Kingdom. He has a wife who is almost ready to pop out a baby and also has a little toddler to begin with. With technology growing and growing, data of us is kept in even the smallest instances. From our cell phones and Facebook profiles to hospital registrations and credit cards, you can find out even the smallest bit about someone that can lead to something huge. Bond is out to prove how much information is kept of us. How? He has hired two private investigators to try and track him, as David tries to disappear off the grid. They have 30 days to find him, by only knowing his name and what he looks like. What We Think? This review might a bit short, but it doesn't mean that it's a bad film.This documentary is actually a very insightful look at a system in which we live our lives, normally. Security cameras, the stuff we throw away, and everything in between leads back to us in some way shape or form. Armed with a handheld camera, we follow David through the countrysides and cityscapes thinking that any move could be the one move that gives everything away. Who he calls, what he buys, where he stays, becomes a case of "viewer paranoia". Yet a very real, raw look at how we live our lives. Our Facebook and Twitter profiles, our cell phones, all tracking where we are and what we are doing. Our Grade: B+, Bond brings out the big guns and backs up exactly what everyone has been worried about...security. Documents and video footage has obviously been some of his biggest proof. But did he last the 30 days of being on his own? You'll have to watch to find out. -Phx.

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.
