Though the subject merits serious attention, the tone feels unduly alarmist, echoing panics of previous decades about things such as comic books and rap lyrics.
Given that we're not even sure of the effects that always being connected have on the world, it feels somewhere between premature and panic-y to make the children the primary cause of our hand-wringing.
...a relentless information dump that's rarely able to live up to the promise of its initial setup.
It's an interesting choice of subject matter, let down by an overuse of archetypal scenarios that outweigh moments of relevance.
It's unsettling viewing, and smartly sidesteps allegations of parental paranoia by talking directly to those "digital natives" whose lives are being transformed (for better and worse) by the web.
Arguably the most important documentary about our rapidly-changing lifestyles since Super Size Me ( ... ) food for thought for parents and media students alike.
Imagine a documentary on this awful internet thing made by your mum - presuming your mum is something other than cool - and you will have an idea what to expect from Beeban Kidron's woeful whinge.
A dense and serious-minded study. The results feel like an intermittently fascinating springboard for something lengthier.
Everyone has their drug of choice. All we can do, suggests the canny Kidron, is be aware of who's supplying that drug and monitor the quantity, and quality, of what we consume.
It's a watchable film, though it tends a little too far to the moral-panic way of thinking ...
Film-maker/documentarist Beeban Kidron explores the IT age in InRealLife, surfing widely and provocatively.
The ideas linger long after the credits roll and you check your smartphone.
