Like Short Cuts absent Altman's metaphysical heft, Look is an oddly compelling little film.

Starting out like goofy comedy tinged with a police show, 'Look' soon shows its capable colors. Implications are there to be read, frightening or reassuring.

Beginning and ending his film with a strip tease, Rifkin suggests some leering adolescent who's gotten his hands on a pair of X-ray glasses and sees nothing but randy, flatulent fools in his midst.

A funny, filthy, dark-hearted ensemble drama.

The whole thing feels so heavily scripted that it brings down the overarching impact. The misguided route raises the question of what kind of juicy stories might be produced by the real thing.

...Rifkin's voyeuristic modus operandi ultimately transforms the film into an unexpectedly compelling piece of work.

Look isn't processing, critiquing, or even warning; in the end, it's just recording.

Once or twice a year, if we are lucky, a movie comes out of seemingly nowhere and grabs ahold of us, with thoughts and ideas that stick in our heads long after the credits have rolled out and the lights in the auditorium has illuminated again.

A skillful examination of the things people do when they think no one's looking.

The thread binding these unrelated folks is a common disconnect between public facades and private conduct, though the notion that people aren't always who they appear to be is hardly some sort of revelation about society or human behavior.

It seems somehow entirely appropriate that the city of Las Vegas would be the place where writer-director Rifkin's film would earn its first Grand Jury Award.

Unexpectedly amusing and inevitably disturbing.

A seamless mixture of riotous humor and socio-political commentary.
