Few films use truly contemporary aesthetic to explore truly contemporary conditions. Even fewer do so with a modicum of the bravado exhibited in director Daniel Goldhaber’s outstanding debut feature Cam. The filmmaker borrows imagery used in day to day computing and recently beamed into ‘screen’ thrillers Searching and Unfriended, which, while commendable experiments with an emerging visual style, appear weak-kneed by comparison. Cam's images are given a hot neon glow by cinematographer Katelin Arizmendi, infusing Isa Mazzei’s screenplay with twitchy, techy, post-millennium art and angst.

The plot of Netflix techno-thriller Cam doesn’t entirely satisfy, but the compelling concept, excellent lead performance, and brilliant details win out.

Should appeal to genre fans looking for something different - but not too different - from the norm.

Cam is a suspenseful mind-bender with plenty of timely feminist subtext.

The set-up is primed for rich psychological thrills, and Cam by-and-large delivers, following a commanding performance from Brewer.
