Critic Reviews for Second Skin
You don't need to be a gamer to appreciate this involving and well-paced character study.
Most of the movie's revelations will be old hat to anyone who's paid modest attention to pop culture for the last 10 or 15 years.
A sometimes celebratory, sometimes cautionary look at the phenomenon of massively multiplayer online computer games (MMOs).
As with most of the ideas tossed around by Second Skin however, it's never fully explored or realized
Audience Reviews for Second Skin
A really good doc about people who play online games. We get to see a lot of people in this flick that range from the love birds who met online to the guy who almost becomes homeless thanks to his addiction to the game. While we do get to see the hard core gamers we don't really see any casual players and hear why they haven't crossed into the hard core. Maybe it's because there aren't many casual gamers. I liked how the doc was put together and the stories told were all compelling. A good watch for anyone who has a connection to anything like the online gaming world
I'm not sure why I'm drawn to these films, but I keep watching them. This one is another can't-look-away train wreck.
