This could be the most important documentary of the last decade. It should be required viewing for everyone on the planet. Currently found on Netflix.

I was really hoping more people on here would have watched this. I think there's a tendency to just not want to know how the sausage is made when it comes to social media. Personally I think this is one of the most important docs of the last twenty years.

It wasn't exactly news to me but the people they got on camera was impressive. I am going to watch it with my 14 year old daughter. I think she might be surprised at just what is going on. She is frequently freaked out or enraged by stuff on TikTok. She might like to know that they want her to be, freaked out and obsessively clicking. Also, she may find the stuff about body dysmorphia and suicide rates upsetting but edifiying.

I really enjoyed it and, though most of the info was not surprising, the story telling of the family was pretty good and enlightening.

Tristan Harris was on Joe Rogan's podcast October 30. That discussion is a great follow up to the movie:
