INGRID GOES WEST: A Biting Satire About Social Media Addiction
I thought “Ingrid Goes West” painted such an elaborate, satirical picture about the Social Media age, the politics of which are shallow bullshit. It wonderfully displays that these #perfect, #blessed lives aren’t quite so perfect after all. We learn that each character has their obvious flaws. Everyone is sad and pathetic. It uses black comedy to instill into the audience that Ingrid isn’t the only one who is aggressively ill. We are all a little bit like her; we are all a little bit sick.
