Writer-director Christos Sourligas's first feature deals with the tough but important topic of online hazing, and the consequences for five high school friends who become increasingly obsessed with creating something viral. Shot captured footage-style, and most likely inspired by the wave of random "Knockouts" perpetrated across the country, the film is equally entertaining and disturbing. In rare instances, the movie verges on heavy-handed, but this is understandable given the serious subject matter. The best parts of the film are the ensemble moments that allow the cast to breathe and play off one another - like the excellent bar scene in which an aging, philosophical busboy allows his new underage pals to have the run of the place - equally touching, hilarious and tense. All in all the film is deftly executed and thoughtful - the writing, acting and direction are very well done. Sourligas keeps his fly-on-the-wall camera engaged and natural, but still cinematic. I definitely recommend this film.
