Reduces a complex social environment to a trifling spectacle of fakery, peopled by faux-hemians who offer up trivial confessions as if they're earth-shattering.

Fails to convey what brings thousands of people to this place every year. Guess you had to be there.

I emerged charmed by some characters, a bit more informed than before about Burning Man as a whole, but decidedly non-immersed.
