King Kelly Reviews
Kelly has a small fan base online. It's mostly catered to perverts that she pleasures herself to on her webcam shows. One fan, a state trooper, is smitten with her. She records every little moment of her life as a way of making herself and her fans get a window into her lifestyle. She's a typical teen with a family that loves her, but not her behavior. It becomes something they can't tolerate and when her webcam shows are brought to light during a family gathering she runs away with a best friend. They indulge (at least Kelly does) in debauchery and other shenanigans. Sex, drugs and Iphone footage of a girl who deludes herself into thinking she's the IT factor. She's not and that sad fact never comes across her mind during the duration of the film.
A very disturbing, but excellent use of satire on the found footage genre. Using it as a source to attack a culture of deluded young people with their Iphones, Facebooks and other things that make them feel self-important makes the film that much more important. It shows what this type of technology can do to people especially if it's in the wrong hands who use it for wrong instead of for good.
Very important this movie is and funny as hell too with a GREAT performance by Louisa Krause!
it's the first documentation of a female lead that sees how much is too much for a little fame
here's what can be said about the movie: the main character is such a brat and is very unlikeable, everything she does turns into a complete disaster
I find her parents more relatable
however, 'King Kelly' does show the hardship of selling yourself for money and gets mixed up in a world of sex, drugs and violence
anyone with a cellphone these days can record themselves and in the process capture the terrible reality overnight
people respond often with curiosity or harsh criticism, it doesn't matter how big of a star you are
the film shifts from being fun to unbelievability to unbearable
the price Kelly pays ends up shaking her claim to fame
the ending just stops the film and again it should have ended on a more clear note
I do admire though the direction the filmmakers were aiming at
