In his latest film Assassination Nation, director and writer Sam Levinson taps into the nightmares of the Instagram and Snapchat generation. As the film opens, audiences are greeted with a trigger warning, which prefaces an hour and a half of pure chaos.
Every point the film wants to make has to be roared via lengthy speeches and declarations made straight down the lens. Any deeper meaning becomes lost. When the fires finally subside, there's not that much to be found in the ashes.
Assassination Nation has the seed of a good idea at its core, but as a satire on social media and Donald Trump's intolerant America it is about as subtle as a laptop falling on your head from a great height.
This funny, exhilarating film's teenage heroines do, though, represent a better future. Unlike the often imprisoned, regularly showering tough chicks of the exploitation pics Levinson channels, these women have prospects.
