The scenes between Timlin and Fessenden ring of humanity in both its good and evil forms, but the experimental narrative isn't as compelling with the viral-based plot as it thinks it's. Mockler's style is as tripped as LSD, but his molding of humanity and flashiness within the modern-tech world, unfortunately, isn't as thorough emotionally or intellectually as it needs to be for entrancement. Underwhelming.
I viewed this film with anticipation of more, frankly. I did absolutely love the photography and creative ideas that the DP executed visually, almost emitting a video-series-in-an-art-exhibition-feel at times. While I didn't hate it, the major plot hole that sat at the front of my mind the entire 80 minutes was simply... Why? I did like the acting and the indie feel, but you've got to be patient for this one.
