The Circle Movie Review

movie review...spoiler alert

I watched the Circle. This movie explores the reality and morality of the all seeing eye.  Supposedly, it is futuristic, but I would imagine that there could already be multitudes of spy cameras in our realities. Would we all surrender our privacy for a safer world?  Safer for who and whose agenda? The movie makes an unclear statement, but could be forecasting a future where secrecy is no longer permitted for the sake of the wellbeing of all citizens.  It is unclear because this world without privacy is creepy, but the movie sort of supports that stand.  It supports it because the protagonist does not rebel against the loss of privacy.  She eventually exposes her superiors, uncloaking their lives, as hers is.

This is probably where the world is headed or already clandestinely there, in part.

Emma  Watson does a good job with her role, but she still strikes me to be an adolescent.  Her character comes across as more of a highschool girl than an adult.
It is her features that are perhaps perennially young, which will serve her better in years to come.

The movie raises a good point though, perhaps to prepare us for a world to come, when privacy no longer exists.  Funny, the cameras are eye size.  In reality, with nanotechnology, cameras can be much smaller.  Recall the the Paul Simon line from the nineteen sixties song, (his bowtie is really a camera). That was fifty years ago.

When I was mentally ill I perceived myself to be spied on and be the inspiration for the movie Secret Window.  What connections does my sick mind make to the Circle?  I looked like Emma when I was her age.  I have a lot of paintings on my walls like her bedroom depicts.  As a possible secret cinema star, the eye has been on me for a long time.  That is my psycho take on how the movie relates to me personally.  Since I identify that perspective as psycho makes me not psycho.
Project bluebird/Mk Ultra is the circle of my psycho reality, celebrated in needle point.
