About this movie

Meet Kurt (Joe Keery), a 23-year-old rideshare driver for Spree, who is so desperate for social media attention that he'll stop at nothing to go viral. He comes up with a plan to livestream a rampage as a shortcut to infamy - coining his evil scheme ‘#thelesson’, he installs a set of cameras in his car and begins streaming his rides. Wildly miscalculating the popularity that would come from his lethal scheme, Kurt’s desperation grows as he tries to find a way to overcome the plan's flaws. In the middle of all this madness, a stand-up comedian (Sasheer Zamata) with her own viral agenda crosses Kurt's path and becomes the only hope to put a stop to his misguided carnage.

This movie is insane! Teaches well on how not to go too far on Social Media because you can do bad things and that's not good. Joe Keery delievers a terrific performance as a killer on the loose picking up people through the fictional app, Spree. Killing people in horrendous ways at times- (The dog scene) and doing well planning, this is quite effective. It However I disliked it on Google because there is wayyy to much bad launguage. So for that alone I cannot reccomend the film.

An interesting take on social media and narcissism, which the utilizes innovative film techniques Karyenko is known for, creating a social-media like form through the emulation cell phone screens and Go Pros.

Amazing movie with a suprisingly great performance by Joe Keery that is not only entertaining but also has a great underlying message about the internet.
