The story of Chris Crocker, an uncanny young video blogger from a small town in Tennessee. Chris is part of the first wave of young people developing into adulthood under constant self-surveillance. At 270 million video hits to date, Crocker is patient zero. He is the product of a hyper social Internet experience offering a virtual ticket out of town. Chris Crocker is still one of the most controversial Internet video personalities to come out of the short history of this genre. This documentary is an intimate look at a complex astute and surprisingly media savvy young video blogger, regarded by millions as the Internet's first rebel folk hero. Written by Anonymous

new kind of celebrity
26 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

it's been said that this doc is a tarnation rip off. what makes tarnation superior is that it's a completely different movie. it's a memoir, a family album that flipping through, you peal back the pictures stickered to the page and see the age and experience gathered underneath. me at the zoo, on the other hand, is about one of youtube's first celebrities, making chris crocker a center piece of the new invention of celebrity, how a younger generation has introduced a totally new definition of celebrity. using his footage helps us know that he's not just something born from Britney spears fame, but an individual who's form of expresion was influenced by the artist, although ultimately shaped by his environment; a ridiculously loving grandmother (one of the best documentary characters i've seen in a long time), a broken, but loving mother, and a town that tried to eat him alive. i thought it was pretty bad a**.
