Editorial Reviews

Product Description

There are an estimated 30 million surveillance cameras in the United States. On any given day, the average American is captured approximately 200 times. Every one of us is constantly being observed at our jobs, on the street, while shopping, and sometimes even in our own homes. Every one of our secrets, lies, crimes and most private moments are all being recorded. But who is watching us? Look is an award-winning drama from writer/director Adam Rifkin that takes the ultimate look at our ‘Big Brother’ world.

 “...a powerful, provocative and disturbing new drama…” ~USA TODAY

"A disturbingly inventive piece of entertainment" ~THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

“What LOOK Reveals May Shock You!” ~NEWSWEEK “practically dares you to look away.” ~THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“A brilliant Hitchcockian suspense film” ~LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Unexpectedly amusing and inevitably disturbing....” - Robert Koehler. ~VARIETY

 “A fascinating, if frightening statement on the way we are.” ~Maxim

Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
LOOK is my first Amazon Vine DVD and I was delighted to receive it, having read all about this film and watched the trailer on Amazon's Daily Blog about a month ago.

The concept of the film is its best feature; the movie is filmed entirely with surveillance cameras. In fact, better than the movie is the outtakes in the special features that show the director as he scouts the perfect positions for stationary elevator and drive thru cameras.

There are other special features on this DVD but none are promising. Particularly disappointing is the "alternative and deleted scenes" section. The "alternative scenes" are really extended scenes and only one or two scenes are actually worth viewing. Cutting these scenes was the right decision, but some of them shouldn't have been filmed at all as they hardly add anything to the story.

There plot of the movie is simple and complex at the same time - show people in the glimpses of different cameras as they go about their daily lives. What results is surprising and shocking at the same time - almost 100% of our lives and stories can be seen if one follows all the cameras that are watching us - from the mall cameras in the fitting room to the bathroom cameras to the garage to the cellphone cameras of strangers to the nanny cameras installed by us to spy on others but which, in fact, monitor us as well.

The characters in the story all have tangential lines and some have interactivity among themselves. sometimes this results into a story that's a bit too neat, but often it just underscores the interactivity of our lives.

Whereas Watchmen asked "Who is watching the watchmen?", LOOK asks who is watching YOU? Or me? or all of us? Where does the information from the cameras go? How can it be used?

4.0 out of 5 stars LOOK=KOOL May 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
LOOK must surely be among the most unusual dramas I've ever seen. The basic premise of a seemingly random group of citizens whose stories gradually intersect is hardly a cinematic novelty. What does make this film unique is its central conceit: it is shot entirely from the point of view of surveillance cameras. One would assume that such an approach would bore and annoy the viewer, but such is the skill of the filmmakers that LOOK draws you right in and actually makes you feel like a voyeur of sorts. The cast does an outstanding job of keeping it (virtually) real. To describe the characters and situations would create too many spoilers, so let it suffice to say that LOOK is sometimes humorous, often rather disturbing and occasionally as chilling as any horror film. Even the title is provocative: LOOK at what people tend to do and say when they believe that no one can see or hear them, and LOOK at the unfortunate consequences that can often result. For that matter, LOOK at yourself as you peer into the behavioural abyss of others and ask yourself why, if you dare. A one-of-a-kind film that demands repeat viewings, LOOK carries this reviewer's high recommendation.

The DVD, from horror specialist Anchor Bay, features plenty of outtakes and a better-than-average featurette. Director Adam Rifkin has attitude to burn and is a personality to watch in the future, so LOOK for his next project!

Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Look is a movie that surfaces a rather disturbing subject, for there are millions of surveillance cameras in the United States that capture our every move, some of rather intimate nature.

Today, there is hardly any natural disaster, event or news worthy moment without a video having captured all details. The average American is captured by a recorded device at least 200 times. For example, if we use a prepaid pass device, the motor vehicle authorities know wherever we have been. Cellular phones provide records of our every call and of our location at any given time. Cell phone cameras are able to capture our image and send it over the Internet at any given time; our navigational pattern through the Internet is now recorded and used as a sales tool... But the movie tells how we are being observed at our jobs, at school, on the street, while shopping, in the dressing room as we try on new garments, at the airport and even in the "privacy" of our own homes.

The movie probes into subjects that leave us wondering if there is such a thing as a private moment, or a secret. Just look at the scandals of the day and realize that no one can carry a secret affair without some form of detection, whether a photo, a recorded conversation, or the paparazzi following our every move.

No one seems to be able to lie, deceive or commit a crime without some form of record surfacing, and while some aspects of this loss of privacy may be good for society, the movie shows the desperate situations resulting for some innocent victims.

A rather powerful movie, would highly recommend seeing it to understand the reality of our modern times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a LOOK May 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I thought the idea seemed interesting but possibly limited when I saw the ads as the film was released,then I heard some positive things about it,so I wanted to see it...

I found myself engrossed by several of the assorted creeps,losers & felons that showed up on the surveillance cameras around town and I enjoyed watching their stories as they unfolded.

Some (most) of the people caught by the cameras are idiots and there were good laughs to be had,while some were truly evil people up to no good and it was interesting but disturbing.

I enjoyed the film so much that as soon as it was over,I watched all the extras,wanting to see more.

The extras include a making of film and a bunch of extra scenes they didn't use and some extended scenes that were in the film.

I liked the film and I would recommend it for the over all fun it created.
