This weekend, I watched The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley; and it was very interesting! Directed by Alex Gibney, and starring Dan Ariely, Erika Cheung, and Tyler Shultz; The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley, is a documentary film about the rise and eventual fall of blood testing company Theranos, and it’s founder Elizabeth Holmes. The documentary is a long one but very detailed (and at times, pretty graphic too). It doesn’t beat around the bush as it talks about the founding of the company and the vision of it’s founder. But gently over it’s run time it begins to describe the events that lead to the exposure of the company’s operations and it’s eventual demise. It doesn’t hold back on any of it’s information, rather highlights what made the company grow, and in time shifts focus from a story about a young entrepreneur turned business role model, into a very disappointing character in the financial world!
