Cyber Punk 

When: Fri., Aug. 16, 9:30 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 17, 7:15 p.m. 2013
Price: $9
Much like Steven Soderbergh's often-imitated 2000 film Traffic, Henry Alex Rubin's (Who is Henry Jaglom?) Disconnect weaves a variety of intersecting storylines together and creates a precarious balance that seems to be on the verge of bursting apart at the seams at any minute. A critique of the way in which our obsession with social media doesn't enable us to see the consequences of our actions, the film includes a terrific cast that features Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Alexander Skarsgard, Max Thierot and Paula Patton. While it's not an easy film to watch — the tension surrounding the school bully episode at the core of the storyline is palpable throughout the entire film — the movie manages to intrigue as much as it unnerves. It screens at 9:30 tonight and at 7:15 p.m. tomorrow at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Jeff Niesel)
