Critics Of "The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley"
March 18, 2019 Like most any Alex Gibney film, this one is sleek, well-produced, focused and journalistic. But The Inventor, given the Gibney-perfect subject, is a little surprising in its softness. As competent as it is, the film just doesn't bite very hard.Read in Source

March 18, 2019 Gibney finds himself unable to show why Holmes was such a compelling figure. Instead, the viewer is lost in an endless maze of dry re-enactments and footage from Theranos promos and interviews.Read in Source
The Daily Dot
March 19, 2019 The Inventor does a lot of telling but not a lot of showing. We still don't know Holmes any better at the end. Is she just an invention too?Read in Source
