Above average documentary. Very interesting and sad.
22 May 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This documentary proves that love, or a twisted version of love, can lead to horrible things. This is not a simple case of online fraud. From the title and plot you can guess the true story is not going to end happy.

People who say this is brilliant obviously don't see its flaws. The POV fake narrator (which to me I would kinda find insulting) or the cross fade cuts to edit out the interviewees blabbering just looks bad.

But this story is explained very well, the pace is brilliant, the twists just make you as a very feel interested. Its a budget documentary that presented well. They did their research. If you keep with it it gets very interesting and shocking!

Stayed up late, watching this on ABC iView as an online "catch-up TV" documentary. I couldn't help but think how much the world depends on the internet. I could lost my job on Monday for complaining about work on Facebook. But then I have a network of contacts to email my resume to find another one on LinkedIn. I have meet people of the internet too. Luckily I said who I was truthfully. But what if I lied?

To me this documentary hits home. People live out their lives over the internet now. Its a fact and its sad. The internet has private information about everyone for anyone to seek. But you can also fake your life over the internet. Start chatting with people who are lonely and love hungry, its a recipe for disaster.

This documentary will clearly show just that. You never know who your talking too. The ending so worth the boring parts.
