Movie Info

Love--even pathological love--is incredibly powerful. Thomas Montgomery, an unassuming machinist in upstate New York with a troubled marriage, meets teenage Jessie (a.k.a. "talhotblond") online. Montgomery tells her that he is Tommy, an 18-year-old boy on his way to Marine boot camp. Their relationship quickly evolves into cybersex and an engagement. Eventually Jessie discovers that Tommy is really 47-year-old Thomas and confirms it through one of his co-workers. When she embarks on another online relationship with Thomas' co-worker, all three of their real and online lives begin to collide.

There will be no surprises for anyone paying attention to narration and structure, but I suppose it may be shocking to others who are not paying attention to such things. Great access to important subjects/witnesses and presented clearly and linearly. A well designed documentary.

Creepy. The acting wasn't great, but the story was a good one.

"She unleashed a fantasy online that was addictive as any drug, and as lethal as any bullet." Like the somewhat similar documentary Catfish, Talhotblond is a real-life story about how easy it is to hide behind a fictional identity online, and the problems that can result from such deceit. Talhotblond is an example of a worse case scenario of Internet deceit. A dangerous love triangle started online ends up in a murder and the destruction of several lives. Interviews from the people involved, psychiatric experts, and the law authorities who eventually became involved, paint a disturbing picture of manipulation and lies that is unfortunately all too true. If you're interested in the subject, check it out.
