Exploitation Made Almost Palatable
26 May 2006 | by B24See all my reviews

Most films of this kind call strictly for a kind of voyeuristic response on the part of the viewer. This one rises well above that level because of its message and its unique manner of execution. It displays an interdimensional technical structure that works well, especially within the context of internet effects on ordinary human behavior.

In other words, it takes what might ordinarily pass as borderline pornographic scenarios and makes them the vehicle rather than the main focus of interest in showing how people respond to that novel kind of intercommunication. Skillfully moving from the computer screen to real life situations and back again, the film overcomes weaknesses in plot and credibility to succeed in creating an overall sense of purpose.

Not that the story or acting are uniformly deficient. Indeed, there are a few fine performances of difficult material here, as well as production values that rise well above those of most independent films. This is one of those films that require some serious reflection on the part of the viewer in order to get past preconceptions or prejudices.

Everyone can and should see it a little differently.
