Explores the question of whether a human being can be reduced to data and stats
5 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I ended up enjoying the film because I come from the tech industry and I am generally interested in the themes explored. I felt the acting / dialogue / cinematography was a bit mediocre.

The main theme throughout the movie was the question of whether a person can be reduced to a collection of data and statistics. The main character Joe, believes this to be true, however most people resist this notion and find it uncomfortable. I really enjoyed the exploration of this idea and its effects on people. In the end, Joe's endless statistics and self quantifying make him so rigid that he is terrified of change, and he decides he must overcome this.

Not sure the film makers quite nailed the ending, but still enjoyed the film.
