Documentary


 

A look at the rise and fall of Theranos, a start-up in Silicon Valley that was valued at $9 billion until its founder and CEO was indicted for fraud.

"The Inventor: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley" is a fascinating production. This cleverly constructed documentary expertly showcases the light and shade of this absorbing story; from the ground-breaking ideas to the pathological lies touted by the founder and CEO. This is a welcome look behind the secretive curtain of Silicon Valley start-ups and the weird world of venture capitalism. In the end, it shows that it really is all about who you know, but just because you know them doesn't mean you should trust them. Bad blood.
