A Really Great Performance From O'Shea Jackson Jr and A Good Message, But Has Unlikeable Characters And A Confused Tone
16 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Ingrid Goes West" is an indie film about a social media stalker (Aubrey Plaza) who moves to Los Angeles to follow and befriend an Instagram user (Elizabeth Olson).

I had no idea what to expect from this film, but its premise interested me. There are probably people like this out there in the world (not to call anyone out), and creating a film that showcases how someone can lose their mind over a celebrity on social media and stalk them is a smart idea to make people aware of the issue. That's what this movie does very well. It addresses the issue of social media stalking and shows the dangerous consequences this type of crime has, and how it affects not only the perpetrator but the victims as well.

O'Shea Jackson Jr. is by far the best part of this film. Every time his character is on screen he has witty dialogue and his character is just really likable. His character has this weird but funny obsession with Batman which really added to the hilarious nature of his character. Every time his character wasn't on screen and you were watching other characters, I wanted to see him instead of the other characters so that he could add some of the comic relief this film offers a lot of.

The reason I didn't like watching any of the other characters was because the other characters were really unlikeable. The main antagonist is one of the most unlikeable characters I have seen in a film all year long. I couldn't get behind her in her quest to have a friend. Sure, it's a sad situation that she has no friends and you find out some background information that makes you sympathize for her a little bit, her character just goes way out of the way to unrealistic lengths to try and get noticed and have that one friend. She's really just a psychopath. Elizabeth Olson's character was also really unlikeable. You like her at first, then there are some things revealed and when those things are revealed you're like "yeah I don't like her as a person." The only character that is the only likable one is O'Shea Jackson's character.

This film really missed the mark with its tone too. For most of the film it's this light-hearted take about social media stalking, then is dives into more of a dark and disturbing type of film and these two tones don't really mesh well with each other. I also found most of the situations, not the overarching situation of social media stalking, but some of the lengths the main character goes to to be noticed unrealistic as well. Some of the situations that play out just seem like they would never happen in real life.

This was an interesting "enough" film about social media stalking, but it's unlikeable characters and confused tone really bring the movie down.

I'm going to give "Ingrid Goes West" a rating of a C+.
