~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Look (2007)


Starring: Giuseppe Andrews, Rhys Coiro, Jamie McShane, Chris Williams, Ben Weber,
Director: Adam Rifkin

Premise:
The lives of several individuals are pieced together through surveillance footage.

My Take:
This is the movie which spawned the short lived TV program on Showtime.
We view the tragedies and high points in the lives of several loosely connected individuals including a teacher who succumbs to a moment of weakness with a student and faces the dire outcome, a insurance worker who is constantly picked on who is hiding is own secret, a lawyer who has a wonderful family hiding his homosexual affair, a department store manager who is promiscuity with many of his female employees, a late night worker at a gas station with dreams of becoming a rock star, and two men who kill a police offer then take off on a crime spree.
As I said in my review of the TV show, it's scary how much of our lives are taped and we have no idea or think nothing of it. At times it can be good and other times its an invasion of privacy. The movie holds it together with its rather captivating human tales.

Rating: In the middle
