“I don’t do public shows, I don’t tell my guys I love them and I don’t fake my orgasms.” These are boundaries that Alice (Madeline Brewer) strictly maintains in the daily hours that she becomes her webcamming alter ego Lola. She keeps her performance work tightly sandboxed from her personal life, as it must be. One day, Alice finds herself unable to log into her account. Someone is already on, using her profile. She hits the site as a guest and discovers that somehow, against all reason, she’s been replaced on her page with an exact duplicate of herself, inexplicably camming from her very home. A duplicate that knows personal things only she could know. And is extremely less guarded about any issues of privacy.

An extraordinary genre vision and one of the smartest films about sex work we’ve ever seen, this relentlessly tense surrealistic thriller is the creation of Screenwriter Isa Mazzei and Director Daniel Goldhaber, who share an authorship credit. Herself a former camgirl, Mazzei takes an ingenious, almost Lynchian approach to exploring the anxieties and conflicts of sex work. Like few films have, CAM brings pulse-pounding life to the ways in which workers develop an enhanced awareness of the perception of others, an invaluable skill for performance – and self-preservation – that can take a significant toll. It’s a stunningly gripping experience, propelled through the stratosphere by a fierce lead performance from Madeline Brewer (THE HANDMAIDS TALE), who’s simply never been better. Vibrant with a supporting cast that includes Patch Darragh (SULLY), Melora Walters (MAGNOLIA), Devin Druid (13 REASONS WHY) and THE LOVE WITCH herself, Samantha Robinson, CAM is a provocative nightmare that ponders what happens when the online personalities we shape take on their own lives.
