Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film ominously conveys a world of too much information but too little communication, where people have become slaves to glowing hand-held devices that were designed to make life easier but have made it busier and more complicated.
Fresh: Worst-case scenarios for our forays into chat rooms and social network sites are laid bare, as are the illegal and immoral contours of the digital landscape in this well-acted dramatic thriller.
Fresh: What works is the uncomfortable intimacy of peering over the shoulders of, say, Patton when she watches YouTube videos of her dead son, and the shudder of recognition that our hard drives are our external consciences.
Rotten: Journalists lie, spouses stray and thieves steal, but "Disconnect" keeps trying, unsuccessfully, to pin the blame on technology rather than its users.
An amazing movie that depicts the reality of our Social Networked lifestyle
This movie is amazing I am surprised it did not get more of a chance in theaters. Disconnect depicts the reality and threats of our new modern social networking lifestyle where some of us don’t know who we are talking to all we have sometimes is a user name.
This was a good movie with characters that the audience will be able to relate to. Definitely worth a look
Current state of our society
Most people in our country greedily consume "steroid" technology - when the new and modern advancements are simply beyond what we actually need - and this movie just points it out. I don't think it's necessarily people who consume phones like water in the desert, but it's worth debating
