Storyline

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

Different than what you would expect
28 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been a fan of Chris Crocker since I was a sophomore in high school (Soph in college now). Out of everyone I follow on youtube he has by far been the most inspirational to me so I had to see this film.

I thought the film took a very interesting direction, it was very tamed; thats the best I could describe it. The film did not just talk about Chris Crocker but it was more focused around how the internet has changed the world, and the turmoil Britney Spears went through and how Chris Crocker related to her during those hard time.

I enjoyed the documentary and thought it was very well done. My only problem with it is I did not feel it went in depth enough about Chris Crocker. I would have loved to hear more about him, maybe hear some stories about his short time in LA after the Britney video. Maybe more about his childhood, specific times he was bullied, maybe his relationships. I watched the doc because I was interested in Chris Crocker not all this the history of youtube, which a lot of the film was about.

All in all it was very interesting, and even if someone isn't a fan of Chris Crocker but knows of him they can take something out of this film. I definitely recommend it
