In nearly every scene, it seems like a character is framed by a window or camcorder frame. We are often in the POV of a Peeping Tom next door neighbor, Ricky Fitts, who records everything he finds beautiful on his camcorder. His subjects, the Burnhams, don't believe in closing their curtains so their messy lives are on full display through their four pane windows.
At first I was a little hesitant in regards to my feelings about the film. Soon enough, however, I understood and it all made sense. The film is a work of art in the way it combines story-lines so seamlessly and infuses themes of idolatry and philosophy; dreams and fears. An all-around great film that clearly has something to say.
Every time I watch this movie I cry because everything Lester did was stop being hypocritical. And when he finally manages to feel good, he is killed by hypocrisy (of society). In the end, Lester describing the one second of eternity of his life before his death is of an irreparable sensibility. Masterpiece!
