Nerve (2016, dir. Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman)

A young photographer becomes part of a pop-up viral game where contestants complete dares for money. Slick and great-looking social media thriller which plays with a number of contemporary tensions, and makes New York feel like a European capital city.

  1. On the flip side, I thought this was an awful, vacuous mess of a movie, desperately wanting to be edgy but playing out like a Tales of the Unexpected episode for today’s teen market. Woeful.

      1. I think I was expecting it to be darker, and not some tween film. There’s a really good idea in there, but this didn’t deliver on it for me.
