  • The Inventor is one of those documentaries that -- unlike The Edison -- really gets under your skin.

  • It is also a stunning emblem of our delusional, self-aggrandizing, fake-it-till-you-make-it times, a cautionary tale of the tech era and the insidious culture it has created of would-be legends and short-lived genius.

  • The Inventor was a devastating warning of where these unchecked messianic tendencies lead and the lives they can destroy along the way.

    April 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley was a perfect contained tale of the now.
