A vivid view of where the world is right now singled in on one persons cause and effect.

This movie will be remembered as the first movie to talk about YouTube celebrity and is already a cult classic alongside other great cult movies.

I had no idea what to expect, but it had just enough twists and turns to get you into Chris' world in a raw and uncut sort of way.

ME @ THE ZOO (HBO Films, 2012, 87 minutes) tells the story of the life of infamously famous Chris Crocker - who says he thinks he is "the first person to be famous for not being famous." In case you do not know, young Chris is a gay fellow from Bristol, Tennessee, who became famous on You Tube for a hilarious video defending Britney Spears. It was loved and lampooned, copied and ultimately forgotten.

This fascinating documentary is the first of a special summer of documentaries HBO mounted for 2012, making 2012 officially the year of HBO documentaries which is leading into 2013 being HBO's year of docudramas. This excellent documentary shows that Chris Crocker has in fact never been forgotten. Just the way he'd like it. After all, I did call him a megalomaniac, but that's not to say he is unlovable.

He may be famous for being the world's most lovable megalomaniac, so he does not share the list with the likes of Hitler or Stalin.

After losing track of him and waiting to hear about what would become of his proposed reality show (it fell through before Chris even managed to meet with everyone properly), I was stunned and thrilled to catch this documentary on HBO at its premiere on a hot Monday night in June.

Since I think Chris is one of the most talented, beautiful and in his own way loving people I have ever watched, I may be biased. (I DID say he was a megalomaniac though.) The message of crass commercialism and what it actually means to so many people is loud and clear in this documentary.

At one point the film aims its laser beam concentration on the history of videos on the web, videos going viral, and the minor celebrity that Chris had on My Space for a while.

This is a real good doc. I had no idea what to expect, but it had just enough twists and turns to get you into Chris' world in a raw and uncut sort of way. I'm intrigued by the viral superstars. What a strange phenomenon.

THIS IS A MUST SEE DOCUMENTARY. IT IS AWESOME.
The character Chris Crocker (famous for LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE video) is portrayed in his home environment. The film touches upon several impt themes and has a great depth to it. For instance, I loved the Brittany montage and the 666 on her forehead as a sign that all Pop Media is not benevolent. The movie also shows us how bad bullying is to young people - even pushing them out of school and onto the internet. Chris Crocker is a creative gentle soul - and yes he is gay but who cares about that when the real beauty is in the storytelling. This movie will be remembered as the first movie to talk about YouTube celebrity and is already a cult classic alongside other great cult movies.

Director Valerie Veatch and her artistic filmmaking style is clearly a product of a deep creative passion. Absolutely riveting and worth the purchase.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE. A MUST SEE DOCUMENTARY ON TODAY'S INTERNET CULTURE.

So much more then just the boy who cried about Britney. A vivid view of where the world is right now singled in on one persons cause and effect. Great film.

Awesome documentary!! This movie brought to light a lot of things I either didn't know or didn't remember. Really showed a timeline of how social media has changed the lives of people around the world.
