"Blackberry is funny, fast and nerve-rattling. And it is always—always—intensely entertaining”—Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail. Way ahead of its time and literally too big NOT to fail, the Blackberry was the Smartphone of the future…except (in an ending we already know), it ultimately wasn’t. But director Matt Johnson has turned a technological true story into something much funnier than mere truth in a definitely non-documentary story of the meteoric rise and catastrophic demise of the world’s first smartphone, Blackberry is a whirlwind ride through a ruthlessly competitive Silicon Valley, making “a colossal story, a Greek myth about rage, greed, naiveté, and exploitation that thuds, landing hard on the earth from a great height”—Anne Brodie, What She Said.
