It isn't common for movies to come out in black and white these days, but I found that cinematographer Darin Quan's decision to make this a film noir added greatly to the intense subject matter within the plot by creating an eerie tone.

Yedidya Gorsetman has crafted an engaging Sci-Fi thriller on what it means to be on two sides of society within his latest work, "Empathy Inc." The lead actor Zack Robidas delivers a powerhouse performance as Joel, a venture capitalist facing the steep downfall of his latest investment.

Thrilling twists and turns .

I found this film thoroughly engaging and incredibly realistic.

The whole concept is mind blowing and unravels really well without being predictable.

Thrilling, thought provoking, and completely entertaining .

This is definitely worth the watch.

It was a slow start ...

The film's commentary on the balance between the good and bad of humanity raises an intriguing question: can advanced technology be a danger to society, or is the danger within the person holding control of it?

With an unexpected choice in color palette, the eerie black-and-white only adds to the film's suspense, and displays a veteran filmmaker's homage to the great noir films of cinema history.

If you are looking for a film with an exciting story and phenomenal script Empathy Inc. is for you!

Throughout the film, there are suspenseful moments where Anghel decided to have no sound at all, which only added to the intensity of those sequences and the film overall.

Mark Lidner's screenplay does an excellent job of making the viewer feel the intense discomfort and uneasiness that Joel (Zack Robidas) and Jessica (Kathy Searle) feel throughout the film.

Actors Zack Robidas, Kathy Searle, and Jay Klaitz all contribute to the thrilling atmosphere of this film with their phenomenal performances.

I highly recommend checking out this film, it's worth the watch!

This is a fast paced, and wildly entertaining film that will keep you guessing exactly what your watching until the credits and I highly recommend checking it out on VOD when you can!

Now I love hidden gem films like this, reminded me of timecrimes, primer, and other lower budget but still very engaging films!

Really enjoyed it.. .

Empathy, Inc. is an engrossing film, one in which I would highly recommend, as it made me question the imminent danger our society potentially awaits with the ever-progressing innovation of electronics.
