Erasing David (2010/FilmBuff/MPI DVD)


Picture: C†††† Sound: C†††† Extras: D†††† Film: C



Privacy is an issue that concerns many, but too many are not concerned enough about the issue in the most naÔve ways and David Bondís new documentary Erasing David (2010) makes one question more seriously the situation.So, how much of your data exists out there? In the age of technology and modern society how much does the government know about you? How much can anyone access your information? Is there such thing as privacy anymore? Bond hires two private detectives to find him before the month is out to see if he can disappear for a month and evade detection. Will he remain unfound or will he learn that everyone can be tracked and found?
Ever paranoid about the government? You should be. Information about you exists everywhere in the age of computers, cell phones, cameras, cards and IDs. It is virtually impossible to for a modern person to survive with out the usage of some of electronic devices. Just know each time you use one, someone else can track what you are doing. David Bond decides to test that theory by going off grid for a month, leaving only his name for two private detectives to search all of England for him, but I hoped this would go further and say even more about its subject, though it has its moments.
Sure, information and technology has made modern life easier and better, but what happens with the abuse or error in information? If your information falls into someone else hands (has it already?), if a report accidentally marks you as a wanted criminal? That anyone can find you, know you without you knowing them? And that just all without any government technology or information? That even if you don't use any technology, what can you do?Others can find you through your friends, family, and even your garbage.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 picture is about as good as it can look, but the location audio here in Dolby Digital has its limits.There are no extras.
