All Critics (27) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (4) Like the start-up company from which it takes its name, Empathy, Inc may be a modest, low-budget operation, but it nonetheless accommodates some very big ideas... A killer concept falls frustratingly short of the finish line in "Empathy, Inc.," a dark morality tale that ambitiously casts contemporary technology in a throwback visual setting. September 13, 2019 | Full Review… A clever indie suspense that draws on fantasy-tinged notions of virtual reality and identity exchange to create an ingenious tale more in the realm of an intimately-scaled thriller than sci-fi.
Sep 4, 2019 ... Film Review: 'Empathy, Inc.' An "extreme" virtual reality breakthrough leads a financially desperate protagonist down a rabbit's hole of deceit ... Film Review: ‘Empathy, Inc.’ An "extreme" virtual reality breakthrough leads a financially desperate protagonist down a rabbit's hole of deceit and peril in this ingenious indie thriller. Director Yedidya Gorsetman and scenarist Mark Leidner’s first feature “Jammed” was a well-reviewed (if little-seen) comedy set in the twirlydancing stoner universe of a jam-band festival. Their sophomore effort does an about-face from that rainbow tie-dye milieu to the monochrome severity of a black-and-white neo-noir. But surface aesthetics are hardly the only factor that shifts in “Empathy, Inc.,” a clever indie suspense that draws on fantasy-tinged notions of virtual reality and identity exchange to create an ingenious tale more in the realm of an intimately-scaled thriller than sci-fi. Opening on a single Los Angeles screen on Sept. 6, with more cities added Sept. 13 and VOD launch on the 24th, this arresting tale should not only prove a career leg-up for all involved, it might also attract remake offers. Venture capitalist Joel (Paul Rudd-looking Zack Robidas) begins the film at a serious low ebb: He’s had to take the fall for a high-profile, Elizabeth Holmes-like Silicon Valley boondoggle. Learning that his trusted inventor falsified data to suggest a technological breakthrough he was nowhere near delivering, Joel gets publicly scapegoated for sending nearly $100 million in investor funds down the drain. He and loyal spouse Jessica (Kathy Searle) crawl back to her parents’ home on the East Coast to start afresh. There, the in-laws (Charmaine Reedy, Fenton Lawless) make it immediately clear they plan to be “helpful” in the pushiest, most controlling and invasive ways possible.
