Movie Info

NETIZENS delves into the lives of three women whose lives have been transformed by online harassment. Carrie Goldberg is an attorney in New York City, who launches an internet privacy and sexual assault law firm in the wake of her own cyber harassment. Tina Reine, in West Palm Beach, is a successful businesswoman whose career is derailed after an ex-boyfriend creates numerous reputation-harming websites. San Francisco-based Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of a popular web-series, "Feminist Frequency," critiquing representations of women in video games, who is the target of a cyber-mob's ongoing campaign of rape and death threats.


Critic Reviews for Netizens

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

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

May 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.

What Netizens ultimately does is make a case for a complete rethinking of how society views women and sex, arguing that the right to privacy does not have to conflict with First Amendment concerns.

Perhaps Lowen's greatest achievement, though, is the way she conveys aspects of patriarchy and misogyny that are much more complex.

...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.

Apr 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.
