Quotes

Pam: Remember how, like, when you used to call people, either they were home or they weren't? You know, like, you got their machine? Now, everybody has a cell phone, but when you call people, it's like, they pick up even less.

great indie film
21 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. I saw it with my brother the other night on netflix. The African-American actor was amazing. that guy should be and could be in a lot more films... His performance was captivating. I read about the film and heard the scenes with the talent was done with hidden cameras and mirrors. It is clear because the people who come in are all so real and distinct. The film is unique and original and that goes a long way. The film uses humor and an original story to deal with the American dream, and our obsession with recognition and the current wave of talent shows and reality shows, of fame, fortune and morality. Great first film from a new American director-- someone to follow for sure.
