Storyline

Nick gets his girls the same way he gets his music: online. On a first date, Eva invites him to an exclusive file-sharing community called 'The Lionshare'. From there, Nick's own creative frustration fuels his consumption of pirated music and other media while he produces nothing of his own. Eventually, he finds inspiration in the unlikeliest of places.

Propaganda
31 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Even though I'm actually in favor of the political message of the film, we have to be honest that the film itself is basic propaganda. It's like a product-placement movie where file sharing is the only product.

There isn't much plot or characterization to speak of, and in fact the film could easily have been better as a short.

And I don't really feel the need to have an extended joke with three people discussing the variable taste of cum. There's a reason some things only work in porn. Bear porn.

I felt the acting was actually quite good. I believe these people are who they appear to be. Of course, maybe it wasn't acting... Except, who smokes any more? Gah.

SO TRUE about the seniors, though. And we're only getting more of them. Some day, I may even be one. What is the world coming to?

It was a good first effort. But writers and directors should realize that the story has to be the story, not whatever political points they want to score. Subtlety and finesse count.
