A timely film that ought to summon everyone's outrage.

Cynthia Lowen, who produced the disturbing 2011 doc Bully, scores another infuriating triumph with her directorial debut, Netizens, which follows three victims of online sexual harassment and defamation.

...keeps covering the same ground, and never quite tackles the root problems of this kind of aggression and how it's facilitated by online media.

April 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Lowen's technique represents a refreshingly new dynamic of an uninterrupted 90 minutes of close-ups to women's faces as they address the still patriarchal entertainment and social media industry.

April 26, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Insightful and quietly furious.

A powerful and honest look at a global epidemic.
