Uninhibited and Real

"I initially thought the movie would be shallow in content, but in the end I find it quite deep in that it well describes today's people especially with interactions in internet.
Over all I think the movie is well made with good acting and story telling. A lot of uninhibited sexual content were shown without actually appearing dirty.
I agree with the view of the movie in that cyber space has real people, but there is something unreal about it. People take risks because cyber space gives us unreal feeling about the situation, but it is as real as reality. It sounds contradictory, but that's the scary part of all."
Fantasy, Reality, and the Spaces In Between: Looking for Lov

"Like it or not the computer has changed our lives in ways far beyond business, data storage, ease of trafficking information, etc. The concept of Internet dating may not be new but it has rarely been so successfully investigated as well as Jed Weintrob's ON_LINE. And whether or not the viewer has ever participated in streaming video chat rooms or utilized the many internet on line sex spots, this small, low budget film will be an eye opener.
Recently dumped John Roth (Josh Hamilton) and his roommate Moe Curley (Harold Perrineau) out of frustration have started an internet dating/chat site/erotic exchange business. John rarely leaves his apartment/business, electing to spend his entire day and night online watching the beautiful Angel (Liz Owens) going about her daily duties of grooming, dressing and undressing and sleeping. John has an online buddy Moira (Isabel Gillies) who acts somewhat as a mentor for lonely people like young Ohio gay lad Ed Simone (Eric Millegan) who dials up another online sex provider, older Al Fleming (John Fleck), in an attempt to have some semblance of a non-closeted life. Moe attempts to get John out into the real dating world and arranges a meeting with the beautiful but sexually frustrated Jordan Nash (Vanessa Ferlito) but the two find relating easier on the internet than in real life. These people all interact both online and in life in a way that begins to blur what is reality. The concept is one of the dichotomies of fantasy and reality, desire/need and acting out, isolated loneliness versus stepping into the physical world and joining the dance of courtship.
The beauty of the film is in the production, and if awards were bestowed on creativity this little movie with its split screens, streaming videos, computer video cameras, and the station they all are relegated to in the space of a room, would be at the top of the list. The actors are all very fine, creating believable characters out of very little face-to-face interaction. ON_LINE has a lot to say about our current state of human relationships and interacting and it says it without being dark and cruel but instead with a lot of light comedy that serves to make the story relatedly credible. For the subject about of sex acts, it remains suggestive with being graphic: it walks a thin line very successfully. Grady Harp, February 06"
On_Line Valentine to New York City
Ceijonius | 03/22/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Don't be fooled by the steamy scenes and 'taboo' subject matter. Ultimately, On_Line is a sweetly romantic movie about human connection and love. In addition, the movie was filmed in New York City and contains some lovely images of the World Trade Center. For a New Yorker, it's wonderful to watch a film that doesn't forget the cityscape prior to September 11 and imagines a world in which the World Trade Center remains a part."
MUST SEE -- SUNDANCE INDIE HIT OF 2003
indiefilmreviewz | New York, NY United States | 02/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Check out the hot, sexy, and decidely-not-for-primetime ON_LINE. Josh Hamilton (The House of Yes, Kicking & Screaming) and Harold Perrineau (Oz, and Link from The Matrix: Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolutions) topline this ensemble of intersecting love triangles shot thru New York City's internet dating and cybersex community. The first REAL look at virtual communities, webcam voyeurs, and what it's like to live life in our new net culture. But most importantly, this film is super-sexy and sports a super-hot young cast of actors who we'll be seeing for years to come.
Worth seeing for the Josh Hamilton/Vanessa Ferlito scene in the middle alone. ***** Check it out!
