Consensus: Though Adam Rifkin's voyeuristic film sometimes feels like only a clever gimmick, it's for the most part a compelling thriller with political overtones.

The performances feel natural, improvised, and it's easy to believe this is the world we inhabit.

Look, an unsettling, rudely funny but not entirely credible feature by the writer and director Adam Rifkin, is an ensemble narrative for the age of public surveillance.

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Not much is what you get with this bargain-basement attempt at Altman. It has 'direct to video' written all over it

Short Cuts with surveillance cameras. Unfairly overlooked writer/director Rifkin creates a fascinating film by following multiple characters stories using only… More
