Review this tv show
Holmes commands the screen as if it belongs to her. She surely must have known all along that it would. Much of the footage here is of the dog-and-pony variety, once commissioned by Theranos and designed to sell the con. But it's so high-gloss--so weirdly hypnotic--that neither Gibney nor "The Inventor" can get to the real human behind the image. A shortcoming of the film? Sure, but the only one. Must watch.
In two hours, Gibney does an efficient job of recapping the rise of Theranos to a $10 billion valuation and its epic fall. ... But Gibney never quite connects the dots between Holmes and the factors that facilitated her rise.
