Assassination Nation (2018)
October 3, 2018 4:42 PM - Subscribe

When someone starts hacking phones and leaking the texts, members of the town of Salem start turning against one and another. Lily, a local teenager, guides the viewer through how a town could lose its mind and turn murderous in a short period of time.

In an opening sequence,the viewer is treated to a long list of trigger warnings transphobia, misogyny, nationalism, violence, substance abuse etc. Amazingly the film really does manage to cram all of that into a dark satire about what the world (specifically the white male world) expects from teenage girls and what happens when they don't get it. A particularly timely social satire.

Okay, so I really liked this, flaws and all. It's been a long time since I've seen Spring Breakers, but it had that kind of vibe to me a little bit.
