Effective early experiment
29 October 2000 | by (Framingham, MA) – See all my reviews

I have just viewed this movie, after about three sessions (the quizzes and tours of the Overtons' residence take up quite a bit of time, and as they also break the flow, are convenient points to leave the story for later viewing). You cannot just pop the disk in and expect to be done in two hours. It is true that the acting is less than stellar, and the interactive nature of the plot means that the scene transitions can be jarring and sometimes lack flow when the software selects the scene according to the personality questions you've answered. Additionally, there are the typical gaffs you see in grade "B" movie making, such as when the camera revolves around Michael in a phone booth and you see the crew reflected in the glass. All this I can overlook, however, as I think this is a very laudable attempt at coming to grips with a new genre. For me, the emotional impact of the story was definitely heightened by its attempt at identifying, then pushing, my emotional buttons, even in such a ham-handed, primitive way. Of course, the more honest you are with the many questions, the more satisfying is the end result. The highly personal nature of the questions suggests that it is best to view this alone, at first. It would be interesting viewing for couples who are comfortable communicating with each other, but caution is recommended. As this genre becomes more sophisticated (assuming of course the fickle public buys into it), becoming more incisive, I think it will have a larger effect on society than violence in the media, maybe even the television itself. If it succedes in reaching into your guts and shoving that stuff in your face, who knows how different people will react when confronted by that level of truth?
