The performances feel natural, improvised, and it's easy to believe this is the world we inhabit.

If Crash had been this interesting it might have deserved that Oscar; this movie lacks polish but that is precisely what makes it work. It's a very interesting experiment, one which I found entertaining, nervewracking, and rewarding.

The effectiveness of it in capturing our attention attests to very fine writing and editing which serve the mockumentary framework with immediate gripping power.

This could have amounted to nothing more than a clever trick, but it's much more than that.

Rifkin skillfully interweaves plotlines in a way that makes this currently much overused device seem perkily adroit rather than tiresome.

This is a great example of what you can do with not a lot of money as long as you're willing to think outside the box.

Rifkin's film is surprisingly compelling, if not up to dealing with the larger political issues it raises.

Some of this isn't easy to watch, but it's all worth a Look.

Even if "Look" exploits reality TV by boosting a sub-marginal plot with very realistic security camera footage it is still a great perspective into our brave new world
| Original Score: 7/10

It brings up lots of questions to ponder and mostly succeeds as a fascinating, if frightening statement on the way we are.

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.

A funny, filthy, dark-hearted ensemble drama.

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

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.

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.
