‘The Inventor’ Review: The High Price of Good Intentions| Sundance 2019
It may be a Silicon Valley ethos to “fake it till you make it” but Holmes lacked the humility and the honesty to say, “We haven’t made it and it will take an unspecified amount of time until we do. Hard things are hard and revolutionary technology doesn’t happen overnight.” Instead, she constantly worked to further her deceit and cover up her company’s inability to fulfill its promises.

However, it’s also difficult to see The Inventor as a story about Silicon Valley since Holmes largely got her money from private investors who didn’t look at her books rather than venture capitalists who would demand a full accounting. There are certainly stories to tell about the toxic culture of Silicon Valley and how it facilitates fraud, but The Inventor never seems like the best vehicle for it.

Instead, The Inventor is at its best when it looks at how Holmes conned respectable figures who bought into her narrative rather than taking a hard look at the data. The cautionary tale at the heart of the movie isn’t about self-delusion in service of noble ambitions, but how smart people can be hoodwinked by those noble ambitions. No one wanted to look too closely at Theranos because Theranos was aiming to do something good.

It would be nice to think that victims of con artists are simply greedy. But as The Inventor shows, it’s just as easy to be conned by someone pushing good intentions. And perhaps that’s a darker con because rather than preying on our avarice, it preys on our conscience.
