Directed by Robert Mockler
After posting a video of herself robbing a convenience store, Kiya amasses a huge social media following. A reckless loner, she seeks some form of genuine human connection. Through her travels, she encounters a drifter, an Internet troll and a paint huffing outsider who are all pulled into her circle of chaos, junk food, and drugs.

Visual candy. Sharp script.
★★★★ review by Heather Forrester on Letterboxd
This is the kind of film you come to see at festivals.
★★★★½ review by PennyDiamond on Letterboxd
Haunting. Hypnotic. Surreal. Fantastic performances. There is a scene involving a VHS camera and mountains of junk food that broke my brain. This film is not for everyone, but it stuck with me. There is a remarkably unique sense of style on the surface layer of this film, but there is also something underneath that layer that is quite wonderful.
★★★½ review by Matt Donato on Letterboxd
The internet can be a lonely placed filled with temptation, and Like Me is just one warning scenario. A movie like Tragedy Girls plays a bit more on the nose, but writer/director Robert Mockler goes the more fever-dreamy route. Consequence echoes as loudly as actions, tracing back intent to typed words that some random username didn’t think twice about posting. Addison Timlin plays a systemic product, born from human desires that are warped into a crippling addiction. Feast on Nightmare On Elm Street inspired rooms and car rides through a jelly-floating vortex (very Willy Wonka-ish), but don’t lose focus. This is a cry for reassessment that needs to be heard. You know, before we’re electing presidential candidates based on their Twitter followers…

★★★½ review by Felix Hubble: Boy Donkey on Letterboxd
Not perfect, but this is great. Cast kills it and film is far less interested in being preachy than synopsis suggests. A strong, hallucinogenic-tinged rumination on loneliness and brand creation.
