Movie Info

Every day, across all corners of the globe, millions of users log onto Second Life, a virtual online world not entirely unlike our own. They enter a new reality, whose inhabitants assume alternate personas in the form of avatars - digital alter egos that can be sculpted and manipulated to the heart's desire, representing reality, fantasy, or a healthy mix of both. Within this alternate landscape, escapism abounds, relationships are formed, and a real-world economy thrives effectively blurring the lines between reality and "virtual" reality. First time feature director Jason Spingarn-Koff digs deeply into the core of basic human interaction in the documentary film "LIFE 2.0" by assuming his own avatar and immersing himself in the worlds of Second Life residents - whose real lives have been drastically transformed by the new lives they lead in cyberspace. -- (c) Official Site

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • "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.

    May 19, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 16, 2011
  • 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.

  • Life 2.0 cuts deep into its subject of with laser precision, getting right to the emotional heart of the matter, exploring a problem no one had to deal with even ten years ago, in a fascinating and very human way.
