"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.
