Boring documentary follows Web designers in mid-90s
This film had possibilities, but it never took advantage of them. Studying the mid-90s rise in Internet and WWW popularity, the director lucked into interviewing Justin Hall, who toured the country and got hired by Hotwired and Electric Minds. Unfortunately, he only gives us brief insight into the lifestyle of the Webhead crowd, trading instead on a soap opera affair between Hotwired employees and footage of Howard Rheingold getting interviewed by foreign news crews. A sappy Baby-Boomer ending doesn't save the film from its own pointlessness; nothing of relevance emerges from the screen. Save your money, and just stick to reading about the modern relevance of the Internet.
