AFS (Away From Screen), 11 February 2013
Author: Karl Self from Yurp

LOL is an experimental, low budget movie about young men who are so preoccupied with the internet and their cellphone that they miss out in their social life, in particular with the ladies. It's shot on wobbly low-res video, the dialogue is improvised (or feels that way), the actors are newbies. There's a subplot where a protagonist films people making strange noises and makes "Electronic" songs from the samples. But that's not why this movie is somewhat difficult (tiresome) to watch. It's because the film makers make no attempt to make us want to follow the story. And the pure observations aren't that captivating to begin with. One guy constantly chats online, even when his girlfriend waits in the next room fixing to get busy. Why does he act like this? We can make up our own theories, or -- in my case -- just not care.

Watch this if you're into low-budget experimental movies, or curious about the beginnings of the Mumblecore school of filmmaking.
