When I was browsing my blockbuster shelves, the name Alex Vega caught my eye. Being a fan of hers, I looked at the back. What I found was more than her standard family movie fare. The movie is about a 15 year old highschooler who decides to bring a camcorder to school and videotape his day, then commit suicide on camera. His friends are intrigued, and they join in on the plan.
The ending is so powerful that I decided to rethink my life as a result, not to mention the fact that I was in tears. This movie is certainly deserving of a larger following, and I hope this movie isn't overlooked by the high school students on this site.
The movie's cinematography is a master touch, with most of the movie being seen through the lead's camera. The acting and dialogue are done well enought to lend a sense of reality to the otherwise surreal movie.
I was surprised to see some think so poorly of this film. In my opinion it is very well done with an interesting story line and good acting. Indeed, the actors are likable and their thinking is interesting as it progresses in the movie. It is a story about the human condition and how a set of teenagers react to life and each other. It kept my interest and I believe this film is very worthwhile, although perhaps not suitable for younger teenagers. This is a good film.
