Life 2.0 Reviews

Life 2.0 cuts deep into its subject of with laser precision, getting right to the emotional heart of the matter, exploring a problem no one had to deal with even ten years ago, in a fascinating and very human way.

"Life 2.0" would have been more interesting and original if it, like its subjects, had dwelled more in the virtual world, and if it had told us more about that world's mechanics and folkways.

At once a disturbing vision of escape, a cautious portrait of liberation, and an exploration of authenticity and artificiality, it's a documentary that trades not in absolutes but unsettling ambiguity.

[Spingarn-Koff] films computer screens with no borders, as if putting viewers into the graphic creations, while he listens to his obsessives describe the function and emotional power of their created personae.

A disturbing but nonjudgmental study of online addiction and the lure of manufactured identities.

An honest, fair and quite voyeuristic look into avatars and the real-life humans who control them in Second Life.

As Life 2.0 reveals layers of life and experience, you realize that they are not confined to Second Life. These interview subjects describe their experiences, in both Second Life and what they call First Life, that is, Real Life.

Not so much a documentary of an Internet phenomenon as a deconstruction of 21st-century culture, Jason Spingarn-Koff's unsettling film explores the online game Second Life, in which players create avatars to live in a virtual world.

For a moment you wonder, or hope, that this will be a film entirely shot in Second Life.
