How does what one posts on one's home page create a new reality?
Home Page is an insightful, thoughtful and well crafted piece of work that follows the life of Justin Hall over the period of roughly one year from Swathmore College to a job in San Francisco. Using Justin's unique relationship to the web, the film coaxes the viewer to perceive reality through this digital medium of the 'open' notebook. Justin tells it like it is on his home page; Doug Block tells it like it is as he follows Justin around and meets others who bare their souls in the public forum of the internet. My favorite aspect of Block's film is the way in which he allows the object of his study - the internet and home pages - to form a new context in his own life. Block creates his own home page and juxtaposes interviews of his wife with his own self-examination through the one year + making of the film. In the end, I walked away feeling like I had participated in other people's lives - an experience that I may have gotten by reading the characters' home pages, but probably not with the same intensity as I did by watching this film.
An excellent and timely piece of work.
