LOOK- the Movie is POWERFUL, CAN NOT BE MISSED!
I've just seen a copy of LOOK over at a friends house and this movie
was fantastic! I had this vision in my head of what I thought I was
about to see and Adam Rifkin (writer-director) was able to completely
blow my expectations. Such a powerful and thought provoking experience.
After the end credits started to roll I turned to my girlfriend and
said, "This is even more amazing if you think they finished this film,
jumped on a plane, and started HOMO ERECTUS". It just goes to show how
much range this man has. He can go from "THE DARK BACKWARD", "THE
CHASE", "DENIAL", then write "MOUSE HUNT" for the big boys at
Dreamworks. He had me caring for certain characters and feeling DIRTY
for having thought I liked them, sitting on the edge of my seat waiting
for innocent people to be rescued, and feeling heart broken for them
not being saved. Then I took a second to realize these kinds of things
happen everyday. Children are abducted, innocent people are robbed at
gun point and left for dead. The sleazy department store manager (Hayes
MacArthur was GENIUS!). The slacker's turn out to be the only two
characters I liked from start to finish (Giuseppe Andrews and Miles
Dougal are so talented, they always amaze me). I am looking forward to
the DVD from Anchor Bay on May 5th, I hope it is chock full of extras
that I can study and have all my "how did they.." questions answered.
Adam is a true talent to the film community..

hi Im georgie thanks .
A stunning piece of film-making
No one could do this movie justice in a review- you just have to watch
it. However, for those wanting bitesize details of what it's about they
can read the next paragraph and skip the rest.
---The story follows a number of characters over two days as they go
about their lives, lives which are caught on CCTV. They include a
student and a teacher, two killers on the run, a store clerk and his
mate, a womanising department store employee and a bullied insurance
clerk. There's sex, lies, adultery, violence, abduction and death. By
the end of the movie the paths of most of these often unrelated
characters have crossed in the 3 main locations- a mall, a school, and
a convenience store.---
After reading the other reviews I was still very much in the dark about
this movie. At the time of writing this review some 45 people had given
it zero while 36 gave it ten. The zero count was high enough not to be
ignored whilst the ten count was low enough to be fake ratings by
people involved with the movie, so I was a bit iffy about it. However
it was the passion of the other reviewers that convinced me to give it
After watching Look I can only assume that those giving it zero must be
the type of moviegoers who lap up the shallow dross that Hollywood more
often than not peddles out to the sleeping herds. So if you are one of
those brain-dead masses then you probably won't think much of this
BUT if you are more discerning, enjoy thought provoking material and
sometimes despair at the apparent crumbling of western societal values
you should find this to be as stunning, riveting and sickly voyeuristic
as I did.
For me this film is a modern classic. It's a winding, weaving,
surprising, intersecting story of vice, and of people sadly lacking in
moral fibre. It lays bare the darkness that is within all of us.
Because we view the film entirely through CCTV, it's unbiased, free of
moral judgements and shows only pure truth.
Overall? A Stunning tour de force spewing forth the moral decay that is
eating away at western civilisation..
