Web Junkie, 2014 - ★★

A disappointing entry in the Storyville series wasting a potentially fascinating subject area. There's little insight in to any of the groups: "patients", parents or "counsellors". All of the adults come across as clueless, making knee-jerk reactions which only appear to be putting the children in more danger. This aspect isn't even touched on by the film makers and we're left with a dull fly on the wall documentary which isn't even about web addiction (as far as I recall all the "patients" are being treated for addiction to games).
