Hoboken Movie Lineup
Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ
Opening up in theaters this weekend is my God, a totally retarded “current events” film called “Ingrid Goes West.”
“Ingrid Thorburn is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing “likes” for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane is an Instagram-famous “influencer” whose perfectly curated, boho-chic lifestyle becomes Ingrid’s latest obsession. When Ingrid moves to LA and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star’s life, their relationship quickly goes from #BFF to #WTF. Built around a brilliantly disarming performance from Aubrey Plaza, Ingrid Goes West is a savagely hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the modern world of social media and proves that being #perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.”
Yes – I understand that “social media” is pretty much EVERYONE’S LIFE these days – but that doesn’t mean movies should be made about the dumbing down of human beings.
While I see the so-called “logic” for making a film like this (it will make money, and many can relate), it shouldn’t be done in this way. It should be done a la IDIOCRACY. To utterly MOCK the insanity that is taking place. Not to give it screen “reality.”
Ugh. This just makes me gleeful that I do NOT engage in that mental nonsense. No wonder I can fall asleep with my own thoughts. Hashtag #ANYONETHATUSESHASHTAGSSHOULDJUMPOFFACLIFFNOWPLEASE!
