We’re All Going to the World’s Honest (2022) Movie Evaluation

We're all going to the world's fair still

There’s a really attention-grabbing story in We’re All Going to the World’s Honest. It profoundly resonates inside a dialog about our present relationship with know-how and social media, and the implications of the shortage of management this tradition is related to. Nevertheless, this story is discovered very deep inside an already cryptic movie that doesn’t try to maneuver in the identical rhythm of different style movies. 

Jane Schoenbrun has created a world that doesn’t name for lazy exploring. It’s an natural and excessive rendering of the impact social networks are able to inflicting. And sure, I don’t assume Schoenbrun meant issues to be straightforward for viewers. Ought to we respect that? Completely. However We’re All Going to the World’s Honest isn’t a movie for everybody. 

This isn’t dangerous after all. We’re simply used to movies being an open window to recognized worlds and when that doesn’t occur, we will confuse an inventive resolution with lack of expertise. In We’re All Going to the World’s Honest, issues appear to be random, however they aren’t. They’re something however random. We’re watching a youngster’s life being damaged aside by… one thing. And it’s less than us to investigate what’s on the opposite aspect of the battle. We all the time like to speak about management in know-how environments that would operate as poisonous for the weak elements of the inhabitants, however generally it’s just too late. 

In We’re All Going to the World’s Honest, Casey is a lonely teenager whose awkwardness appears to fade away when she’s in entrance of the pc. Solely not. Her reference to the Web isn’t the remedy for her shy habits. Casey decides to enter the viral “World’s Honest Problem”, and takes the primary steps. It’s solely a horrific show of conduct that hints on the outcomes of one in every of many challenges obtainable on-line.

Casey complies. She simply retains getting into. She doesn’t even cease when a mysterious man decides to assist her and clarify to her about unusual habits Casey isn’t answerable for. What she’s aiming for is a thriller. One which lies within the deepest recesses of the Web. 

The movie seems to go nowhere with its definitive story line within the third act. But Schoeburn drifts away from a conventional type of storytelling and grounds the film when it must conclude. That is horror due to the way it appears like and due to a robust and uncooked aesthetic that makes your pores and skin crawl. However there’s extra past a primary look.  Nonetheless, when We’re All Going to the World’s Honest concludes it shifts its focus deliberately. It’s a decisive transfer by a inventive staff who’re satisfied this dramatic checkpoint is related within the movie’s formulation. It’s one thing I didn’t join with. However I can perceive the rationale behind such a choice. 

Once more, We’re All Going to the World’s Honest isn’t a movie for everybody. Not as a result of it seems experimental or something, however as a result of the actual story it tells isn’t as exploitative as different movies painting these sorts of conditions. Schoeburn has created a singular movie which might’t be in comparison with its friends as a result of there aren’t any. It lies lonely in a cultural panorama of thriller, know-how and existential chaos.
