Storyline

The recent "new" economy with its unprecedented highs and frantic reversals of fortune is rife with fascinating true stories. e-Dreams turns it's focus to the recently defunct Kozmo.com. Once upon a time, a story like this would have been unbelievable, even among those intimate with the workings of Wall Street. But Kozmo.com is now a case study of how an entire economic sector went awry. Just three years ago, Kozmo.com was just an idea in the minds of two 20-something Korean American investment bankers: an online convenience store that made deliveries of snacks, videotapes and other products within a half hour. Beginning in an unfurnished warehouse, co-founders Joseph Park and Yong Kang and their small group of employees did everything from build the website to making deliveries on bicycle.

As a veteran of several dot-com companies, watching this film was like watching home movies. Other vets of that era and I watched this film with sick fascination, seeing events and situations that we ourselves had endured. This film perfectly captures the thoughtlessness, greed, and insanity of those years.

This film serves well as a documentary of one of the most spectacular dot-bombs but it serves even better as proof to those that lived through it that they are not alone.
