The movie epitomizes the problems inherent in attempting to depict new (and constantly morphing) media -- the inevitable obsolescence, the intangible particularities that resist or get lost in translation.
There's something so familiar and commonplace about this story and its characters -- and maybe that has something to do with how much the Internet is a part of our everyday lives -- it's hard to get particularly thrilled.
Weintrob's stylish visuals mimic Web technologies, which succeed in making his characters seem all the more removed from reality. Now if someone would find a way to equip theater seats with a 'delete' key, we could be rid of them completely.
This would-be erotic thriller suffers from the same problem that afflicts so many computer-oriented movies -- namely, that watching characters staring at a screen and typing hardly makes for a thrilling cinematic experience.
Doomed by Weintrob's passion for the Web, his passionless characters are little more than manipulated 'bots' -- and audiences, absenting possible hipster appeal, may vote more zeroes than ones for this digital tale.
