The new Netflix original movie CAM starring Madeline Brewer (The Handmaid’s Tale, Orange Is The New Black) is a disturbing glimpse into the life of a professional camgirl. Saying that the film was not for the faint of heart would be putting it lightly. Nothing was hidden from the camera, which made some of the scenes hard to swallow. It seemed that the director Daniel Goldhaber was trying to show the uncensored reality of the life of a webcamer.

All that being said, the plot of the movie was not entirely about the cold reality of the dark web, it morphed into a dystopian thriller about a half hour in. It was almost as if two different plots had been sewn together into one movie. The second premise was a bit less realistic, but much more terrifying.

Brewer’s character was suddenly locked out of her online account, and worse, someone else was using it, someone who looked just like her. While the idea was far fetched, Goldhaber was able to pull it off. The second half of the film was well executed, cohesive, and entertaining.

The movie was enjoyable, although it was certainly not without flaw. It did get a bit confusing during the last twenty minutes. The resolution seemed hasty, but still plausible. Overall, it was a fun movie to watch, and definitely worth it for fans of Black Mirror or The Handmaid’s Tale.
