'The Great Hack' Is the Kind of Documentary That Keeps You Up at Night

By

Netflix’s new documentary about the Cambridge Analytica scandal isn’t an easy watch. You’re bound to be more traumatized by the end of The Great Hack than you were by Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.

The feature mainly focuses on Brittany Kaiser, a one-time employee of the now defunct political consulting firm who had a hand in exposing their unethical use of data mining to target impressionable voters in the 2016 presidential election.

"When we met Brittany, we didn't know what to think about her. We questioned what her motivations were," co-director Jehane Noujaim admits. "What we found, we believe, was that she was really looking for redemption, a way to understand what she had been involved in."
