Little does he know how insidious the business really is. Written by Stephen Abell.

Visionary retro Sci-Fi that makes you think!
28 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

I've seen this movie at Fantaspoa festival in Porto Alegre in Brasil. I didn't know anything about it and I was more than pleasantly surprised.

Very interesting and visionary premise about a new social network, in very close future, about live streaming videos of people's lives. They have contact lenses camera that shows everything people see. A rebel streamer is killed and his brother takes over his avatar in order to find the killers.

A lot of car chases, very well executed, a lot of exciting scenes. The cast is very interesting. They all have some 60s look and reminded me of Steve McQueen movies and James Dean. But it's very modern in ideas and style. Main actress - Kate French - is awesome. Would like to see more stuff with her.

Beautifully shot, well directed, good writing, visionary ideas, exciting chases, interesting characters. Subplot with sister is a nice addition to the universe of future that is around the corner. It makes you think...

I was missing a spectacular car chase climax, but I feel that the director wanted to make it more personal and direct closure.

Check it out!
