Director: Steven Soderbergh
Year Released: 2022
Traumatized Angela (Zoë Kravitz), who has difficulty leaving her apartment (due to a past incident), works as a "voice stream interpreter" for the Amygdala Corporation (which is about to IPO) and on one of the recordings she believes she hears an assault, but when she tries to report it to the proper authorities, she faces a lot of ... hostility. I like how it addresses anxiety about "going outside" during this on-going global pandemic - Angela regularly scrubs her hands with sanitizing lotion - and it acknowledges the influence of Hitchcock (Rear Window and all that), but kind of falls apart/becomes ridiculous when Angela's on the streets of Seattle, which is where Steven's worse impulses come out and his camera goes buck wild (Dutch angles!) ... and when it turns out she can be a combination of La Femme Nikita and Master Chief, I checked out. I'm also relieved to know that being assaulted a second time actually erases the first horrifying incident - clearly, someone needs to make an adjustment to the DSM. Kimi, play "You Must Be Out of Your Mind" by The Magnetic Fields.
