The director of this film is a former TV documentary director and you can see he really knows his stuff in this mock documentary.
The main topic seems to be how a documentary director can manipulate the subjects of a documentary to achieve his own ends. The results are at first rather comic but become increasingly disturbing. Television documentary makers in Japan have often been criticized for faking material and this film takes it to an extreme.
Shot on video you always feel like you are behind the camera and present as the events unfold - this can make it very difficult to watch. But like being present at a tragic accident it is difficult to look away.
As a comment on the media I think that this low budget movie is a masterpiece as telling as (or perhaps more so than) Network or Broadcast News.
