While another viewer compared the doc to that of a horror film, saying: “You want to see a film scarier than any horror movie that you’ve seen in your life? Watch the great hack in Netflix. I got terrified after.”

The critically acclaimed documentary directed by Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim follows Brittany Kaiser, a former Cambridge Analytica employee who blows the whistle on her previous employers’ connections and Christopher Wylie, a programmer and data analyst.

The official synopsis reads: “Data has surpassed oil as the world’s most valuable asset. It’s being weaponised to wage cultural and political warfare. People everywhere are in a battle for control of our most intimate personal details.

“Academy Award nominees Amer and Noujaim (The Square, Control Room, continue their tradition of exploring the seismic ripples of social media with this riveting, complex film.

“The Great Hack forces us to question the origin of the information we consume daily. What do we give up when we tap that phone or keyboard and share ourselves in the digital age?”

Someone wrote: “When’s the “The Great Hack part 2” released? There has to be a sequel the first one was epic!”
