Ingrid Goes West

Ingrid Goes West ★★★½

You: A scathing critique on what it means to live in a media-saturated world where everything we see online is a lie, yet despite knowing this exposes us to a lifestyle we now want and need despite being completely unsustainable and utterly front-facing, as well as the ways in which managing such accounts creates mini-fandoms where content creators must slavishly interact with their followers while maintaining their guise of perfection or else risk being tossed aside as yesterday's leftovers while a newer, better facade of a lifestyle persona is found and worshiped until the cycle repeats itself and all is left with naught but burnout and hollow aspirations.

Me: Aubrey Plaza goes another month without missing her rent.
