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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking August 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie certainly makes one think about our world today and takes away that "I-can-get-away-with-anything" sense of security that some people seem to have. If you allow yourself to "feel" what you're watching, you might actually benefit from seeing it. If it doesn't disturb you at least a little, you aren't "feeling."

4.0 out of 5 stars LOOKing for a Truly Good Bad Film? July 1, 2012
Format:DVD
There are a lot of improbabilities in "Look": e.g., Isn't it illegal to install surveillance cameras in dressing rooms? Ah well, I guess some department stores do that anyway, especially when there is a film to be made and nubile young flesh to be shown. Many of the characters--Sherri the spoiled and hormonally crazed teenager, Marty the arch-nerd, etc--are utter stereotypes, yet they are well-done (especially with the help of realistic scripts) even as stock characters, and the reasons why they must be so clichéd become evident as one watches. One of the biggest redeeming virtues is the excellent pacing of the film: It moves quickly but smoothly from one to another set of characters and situations, and there are enough interesting twists to where the audience hardly even has to make an effort to suspend disbelief. Unlike many films that utilize this multiple frame-story technique, each episode of "Look" is well-developed and contributes in some meaningful way to the grand whole. Along with the fact that it's simply very fun to watch, perhaps the best things about "Look" are the morals to its stories. It clearly shows the pervasive impact of hidden cameras in our society and how they have the power to acquit as well as condemn,even if they don't generally capture voices and details in quite the way that's shown here. Many other important messages can be found, most notably "No matter how overwhelming the temptation becomes, adults MUST avoid affairs with minor teenagers." Those looking for an exercise in sober realism should look elsewhere; otherwise, most with some tolerance for violence and grit will like, perhaps even love, at least some aspects of "Look."

Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The entire movie was shot from the angle and typical locations of security surveillance cameras, often imitating blurred images and the low quality of the typical low-resolution cameras used in real life for surveillance. As several stories develop in parallel, the Director managed to produce a film that feels like a documentary, allowing the viewer to almost always have the impression that he is watching actual video surveillance materials, and making you wonder and reflect on how you could be caught in embarrassing or illegal situations, but hopefully, without the typical boredom of a documentary.

As surveillance in western societies takes place everywhere, the film successfully delivers its main message, making the audience aware of the actual lack of privacy we all are exposed to. The film makers claim at the opening of the movie that in average a normal citizen is filmed 200 times a day. This figure seemed exaggerated to me at first, but after watching the movie I was persuaded that this order of magnitude is reasonable after all. In the positive side, the movie proves how useful so much video surveillance can be when needed. However, the movie completely missed a relevant issue regarding the "Big Brother" side of so much surveillance, as the film did not explore in any of the parallel stories the potential abuse of the materials being filmed.

Due to this huge omission, I was going to rate the move three stars, nevertheless, I enjoy it, so this explains my upgrade to four stars. For those concerned about the "Big Brother" effect, the movie is still worth watching, as you can draw your own conclusions of all the possible misuses from all the situations presented in the movie. Finally a word of warning: some folks might object some sex scenes and brief nudity, but that is part of what real surveillance cameras record everyday in public places, at work, and at home.
