Profile (2021)



Critic Consensus: Profile's unique narrative gimmick is enough to carry the film partway, but it's ultimately overwhelmed by an increasingly ludicrous plot.

The ratcheting tension is sadly punctured by unintentionally hilarious scenes...

I got caught up in it. I think it's a gimmick in many ways... but it works in this format, and it's kind of compelling.

Profile's formal brilliance also one of its near-fatal limitations: Just because our world is now entirely online doesn't mean that reality is actually there, too.

Is it a great movie? No, but it's something rare in any medium, film or otherwise: a work in which form really is content.

May 16, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"Profile" works on several levels - as a cinematic feat, dual character study, gripping thriller ... and as a cautionary tale.
