Another Body does a service in bringing the enormity of deepfake porn violation to light. The number of deepfakes online is doubling every six months and will reach 5.2 million in 2024, according to the film's estimates. Ninety percent of the deepfakes are nonconsensual porn of women and, the movie suggests, much of it is generated by disgruntled men who feel that their victims slighted them in some way. The filmmakers choose to focus on the personal impact on women who learn they've been porn deepfaked rather than on statistics or a need for political and legal reform to combat the problem. Instead of the filmmakers exploring the legal landscape or public policy, much of the screen time is devoted to conversations between two victims trying to find their perpetrator, conversations that at times are as banal and uninteresting as conversations between people we don't personally know often are. One woman finds a website that instructs wannabe deepfakers on how to superimpose women's faces on porn. They advise "scraping" women's Instagram and Facebook accounts for the main ingredients: photos.

The filmmakers and their subjects all seem to accept without question the seeming necessity for everyone in modern life to regularly post photos of intimate moments, daily activities, meals, selfies, and what used to be private thoughts and opinions online. Unfortunately, it is unrealistic to expect most people to refrain from posting their lives on social media. As teens educate themselves about this crime, they might think twice about the content they share.
