Storyline

Nobody Needs to Know is a story of Fame and the towns and industries and the people who create it and support it. It's the story of two actresses on divergent paths who unwittingly illustrate the power of Fame and its ability to pursue those who run from it and run from those who pursue it. Aesthetically. it's an alchemy of Nathaniel West's The Day of the Locust, The Shadow radio serial, Ralph Ellison's The Invisible Man, and Juergen Teller's Go-See's mixed and sampled to create a sublime cinematic Paul's Boutique for the Era of the Image and beyond. Written by Curtis Winter

The best film I've seen in years
20 May 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this film at a festival in New York and hope that it will somehow be distributed to theaters where everyone can appreciate it. The film is told from the perspective of security cameras located in various points of the city, unraveling a tale of rebellion and breaking out of a mold.

The performance by Tricia Vessey (and the other talent as well but her especially) is amazing, the slightest gleam in her eye conveys more emotion and depth on the screen than I've seen in a long time.

Part of that is of course enhanced by the amazing cinematography, it's composition, shading, etc. all combine to make each frame incredibly chilling and inspiring at the same time. Jacobs' work is ingenious and anyone who remotely appreciates the art behind film-making should see it and pass it on.
