Critic Reviews for We Live in Public
Josh Harris focuses the lens on himself. You probably have never heard of him. And when the film is over, you may wish you still hadn't.
The big question is whether we're now living in a more pragmatic time.
We Live in Public is the kind of nonfiction film that seems to have been conceived to prove that truth is stranger than almost any fiction...
This is a remarkable film about a strange and prophetic man. What does it tell us? Did living a virtual life destroy him?
Midway through We Live in Public, one Quiet participant delivers the hard social lesson of cyberspace: "The more you get to know everyone, the more alone you become."
Harris, who appears throughout in interview footage, is an interesting mix -- someone with a serious inability to connect with other people and yet at the same time someone with a consistent ability to see the future.
