Back when the Internet introduced itself to the world, American filmmakers quickly embraced its possibilities in a long string of cyber-minded films, most of which used genre tropes to show the Internet’s darker sides. Covering everything from popular entries like The Net and TRON to lesser-known sci-fi/horror examples like Brainstorm, avant-garde filmmaker Amanda Kramer uses her first foray into documentary filmmaking to give that moment in time a transfixing and hypnotic evaluation, anchored by essayistic narration from pop culture icon Debbie Harry. —Matt Barone
