REVIEW: Cam

Published

on

Netflix dropped a new thriller recently, one that hit home for the world of streaming and webcams.

In a refreshing take on the true life issues that lie in the world of webcam, and cam girls, Daniel Goldhaber’s ‘Cam’ takes a real approach in touching on the fallout of becoming too obsessed with streaming.

While this focuses on cam-girls, it also speaks to the world of Twitch streams and Mixer streams, which have become more and more ingrained in our culture.

Madeline Brewer stars as Lola (real name Alice), a popular web cam girls trying to make her way into the Top listings of the streaming site.

As she gets more popular, and obsessed with her goals, her channel is taken offline and reappears, only she no longer has control of it.

Furthermore, her identity has been taken by a lookalike, who is not only continuing her channel, but making it more successful and popular.

While the idea of identity theft, hacking, and self-obsession is certainly haunting, this movie lacks any real suspense, or any moments to drive any intensity.

Remove the shock and impact of what is going on with Lola, specifically when it initially happens and unravels, and you’re left with a movie that lacks much emotion, tension, or any true entertainment.
