Critic Reviews for Web Junkie
The campers, of course, hate it, and many seem to suggest it becomes basically another game to them. Figure it out, get released, go back to the computer.
The film is fascinating and often darkly funny, but it's hard not to wish for some actual analysis to flesh out the many scenes of grim people in gray rehab.
The human stories in "Web Junkie" are instantly identifiable, stories of a world where everyone has been brought closer together and simultaneously kept apart.
The kids are as uncommunicative as teenage boys tend to be in every country, and shots of them marching in unison or looking sadly out from behind chain-link fences are only compelling for so long.
The film lacks either the immersive intensity that would galvanize emotions or a context that would provide enlightenment. Its brief tour of an unpleasant corner of reality feels less revelatory than voyeuristic.
