In this HD-video drama (2007) about the ubiquity of electronic surveillance, director Adam Rifkin weaves together average people caught on hidden cameras—a high school tease, a baby's overly anxious parents, a shopping mall lothario, an office dweeb, two convenience store slackers. (Most spycams don't transmit audio, though the fact that they did here didn't bother me.) At first the sequences appear to be disconnected displays of behavior that ranges from the unethical to the illegal. Eventually some of the characters intersect, but more than half the movie elapses before any wrongdoers are apprehended, which raises the question: how secure is a system when no one's monitoring the feeds? 102 min.
