Alex, Tim, and Chris view the women in their lives through the dimensions of a computer screen or the lens of a camera-phone, as they struggle to balance their online fantasies and addictions with the demands of real life.
This up-to-the-second feature intimately explores masculinity in the new millennium, a time when young men are trying to decipher the mixed messages of modern relationships and technology.
Featuring a nonprofessional cast, video contributions from people all over the world, and original music by lead actor Kevin Bewersdorf, this funny and thoughtful film offers an honest portrait of how the latest tools of communication can either help us click or turn us off.

It definitely brings to light an interesting and important topic, being too connected and plugged in via the phones and computers (which I suspect might be me right now). And this movie is a good example of maybe what not to do! It depicts strained relationships and ones left unexplored because of technology as a distraction and interference.
My favorite parts of the movie were the montages of mouth sounds that are cut together to make music (by one of the characters.) I couldn't get enough of it! I also liked the montages of camera phone pictures played to voice mails. Beautiful stuff.
Definitely not your typical flick. I found the concept intriguing but a bit long for what it is. Still it is kind of an interesting film but I don't need to see it again. I found it to be somewhat of a depressing film yet I think that was the intention. It's quite a commentary on some people's addiction to technology.
This has adult situations and not for children.
The Benten Films package is exquisite and I'm in love with those guys after purchasing this and Aaron Katz's “Quiet City”/“Dance Party USA” combo. They put so much attention to detail and they actually care about the films, the whole package is almost like a collectible item.
