As the NERVE movie media machine is shifts into high gear, it’s becoming harder and harder to find any thoughtful commentary. Well, here is one short piece of commentary that won’t totally let your down.
“The only dystopia on display is the one in which we all currently reside, with its reality show obsessions and descent into a push-pull between greed, fame and the desperation to break the tedious monotony of daily routines”
The author basically is saying that Nerve “is potentially something quite different from the usual Young Adult adaptations” because it provides thoughtful commentary on the world we actually live in, rather than on a dystopia that is purely fiction.
Would an actual Nerve app reveal dystopian qualities of the world we live in? Or maybe our world isn’t so dark at all.
