"I was intrigued by the ad promos from certain publications, and by the interesting accomplishment of being in the Guinness World Records for budget/release. I wholeheartedly support independent cinema, but there should be certain lines drawn, and this should have been kept in the can as a reference point of early work.
We follow the events in several people's intersecting lives as each hopes to find love but finds rejection instead. Hand held cameras follow these characters as one might see in a home movie. The sound is intermittent, the acting is improv with lengthy takes and repetitive dialogue. The production did not worry about the barrier being broken as mic pacs are visible on belts throughout, the "epiphany" videos seen at the end by the ladies could not exist unless the "second" camerman is acknowledged and the improv lines counter whatever continuity there was from the beginning of the film. Plus, our main character is a double stalker (follows both his love interest and the other guy on his own) so you really could care less about anyone in this film.
It lasts 68 minutes, there are no special features, and with this being nine years old it could have done much better being released as a supplement with one of his later movies. As a side note, I did the research on each of the quotes put on the cover art, and they edited down each one and did not put the entire rating from Metacritic (gave it a 8.4 from the same 5 people inflating it on each website - when it really should use the 18 score since most others tanked this as a dud). Gave it another star for being in the Guinness Book."
