Review: Ingrid Goes West

"hashtag GO SEE IT"

The most accurate and relevant commentary on contemporary social media use in cinematic form I have seen so far. Both comical and disturbing, "Ingrid Goes West" is a dark warning about narcissistic self loathing. Aubrey Plaza is transcendent and gives an impeccable performance, in this feature from first time director Matt Spicer.
It absolutely nails the Instagram generation, the image obsessed, selfie addicted, image manufacturing millennials- with wicked wit and humour ... and admittedly if you use social media, you more than likely will see some of yourself in it.
