I know Netflix likes to make knock-offs of other highly popular productions to keep us hooked to its platform, but usually there's a tad more effort put in to not be so blatant about it. This one is truly ridiculous. It's basically a worse French remake of "Perfetti sconosciuti" from 2016. Just watch the Italian original and skip this nonsense.
Better than I expected. I thought it was probably going to be just dystopic at first and then primitivist toward the end, recommending some kind of "ditch technology, return to nature/RL" nonsense, but no. It actually went the progressive route and took a step forward rather than back, leaving you with questions to ponder on your way home. In that it did much more with its chosen topic than Ghost in the Shell 2017 did with its own (the latter taking the conservative and quite cliched way out, which was a disgrace).
I couldn't explain to you with any coherence why I liked it, but then the movie itself isn't terribly clear or coherent in what it's saying. I just... know I liked it. Must be the technical execution of it. And finding it at the right time, when I really felt like steeping in a slow-moving upturned world with all normality thrown out the window.
