Garfield's acting is everything. Love the setting and the cinematography that gives such a perfect vibe to the movie. Perfect colors for a movie full of anxiety. It tells everything bluntly without being over the top. It played with my emotions, kind of intensely, but it got me good.
I think it questions the whole idea of rehab/punishment system and puts a serious problem regarding public surveillance through media, cctv, photos and all that. Not to mention friendship based on identity.
