Dashcam (2021)

Jake has been trying to get into reporting by starting as a video editor. While editing a story on a routine traffic stop that resulted in the death of a police officer and a major political official, Jake is sent dashcam video evidence that tells a completely different story than the report he’s told to make.

Working alone from his small apartment in NYC — most of the film takes place on his computer screen — Jake studies the footage and figures out the truth behind what actually happened. But has he uncovered a conspiracy or is he seeing something where there’s nothing at all?

Shades of, well, the entire last year and some months of our lives.

Citing Blow-UpThe Conversation and Klute, this is director Christian Nilsson’s feature film debut. It’s an interesting take on the story as Jake keeps going deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole.

Your mileage may vary when it comes to the way the story is told, but I found this an intriguing journey.
