This is a scary movie... [And] there's a lot of interesting characters.
This high-profile... documentary about the Cambridge Analytica scandal is... frequently gripping, gorgeous to watch, occasionally thought-provoking, always entertaining and yet, ultimately, a tiny bit vapid.
[T]he show is worth watching to make you re-evaluate the use of data and the willingness of the powerful to corrupt.
An intentionally disturbing examination of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, it both explains and offers a warning shot about the misuse of personal data and how that influenced past elections and might well do so in the future.
It is, admittedly, a lot to process. Yet at the very least, this sobering documentary should make anybody who clears two hours to watch it want to learn more, to be more skeptical about what finds its way into one's inbox.
The Great Hack worked best as a prologue to a looming crisis that should be of concern to us all: how can electoral laws be deemed fit for purpose when democratic processes are at the mercy of apparently unaccountable, amoral tech giants?
