  1. ajdehany's rating of the film Buy It Now

    Harrowing interrogation of our consumer culture, drawing connections between consumerism, sexuality, mental health, and family life now. Clever film-making.

  2. Criss Fletcher's rating of the film Buy It Now

    An interesting concept, but never quite achieving anything. A girl with an unstable family life and mental health problems decides to sell her virginity on ebay, and documents her experience on camera. It always feels like there's a moral message to learn, but there isn't other than, 'don't sell your virginity on ebay if you have mental health problems. The second half felt arbitrary and out of style with the first.

  3. Penelope q's rating of the film Buy It Now

    Painful at times, a crude representation of the pressures on teenage girls on today's consumerist society and the break up of family communication.

  4. Vanessa Good's rating of the film Buy It Now

    Hard to watch but a very true expression of the pressures & struggles of teenage girls.

  5. Rebecca aka the big boss man's rating of the film Buy It Now

    first half is cleanly edited with an authentic performance from Chelsea Logan, second half is too self conscious with too much flashy editing, which whilst on its own could just be stylised, but feels false in parallel with such a pared down beginning.

  7. milhouse94's rating of the film Buy It Now

    At times obvious, self-conscious and unconvincing, at others authentically disturbing and effectively uncomfortable, with a main character who proves herself to be simultaneously irritating and sympathetic. Though some of the writing, acting and structure grates somewhat, this film is intriguing nonetheless and certainly worth the watch.

  8. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Buy It Now

    The second hotel scene was one of the most excruciating things I've ever watched. In a sense it is a shame that the character of Chelsea was made 16 (and thus underage) rather than 18 because if the sex shown had been legal, the film would be an effective argument for making affirmative consent laws as they have in California mandatory across the U.S. As for the film, compelling but chilly. Well-acted though.

  9. raggiodisole's rating of the film Buy It Now

    uncomfortable viewing, just the wrong side of voyeuristic, and somewhat creepy. Hardly wonderful acting, either

  10. sebastianbarronmubi's rating of the film Buy It Now

    Reminded me of one of those ads you see on television "Kids, don't do drugs" Appalling script as well.

  11. Steve Thompson's rating of the film Buy It Now

    Like Michael Haneke, Antonio Campos has a fascination for the dark and pathological influence of social media. "Buy It Now" is a convincing simulation of a young girl's degrading experience via a seductive and corrupting online culture. However the film has serious problems with its formal realisation and its structure and this is best viewed as a promising experiment by a director yet to produce his best work.
