    Synopsis


    Look
    At times, it seems video surveillance is omnipresent in America, and Adam Rifkin (Underdog) spends the better part of two hours asserting just that in his fiction feature Look. This motion picture gains a historical footnote as the first U.S. mainstream movie to depict events solely through the "eyes" of surveillance video cameras. The preponderance of action unfurls in San Fernando Valley offices, stores, and shopping malls, where we witness security-camera footage of character interactions and events that would likely never occur if the perpetrators knew they were being "watched." In one subplot, Marty (Ben Weber), a beleaguered insurance salesman alienated by his co-workers, makes brazenly sexual passes at his female colleagues, secretly hatching a darker plan of his own on the side. Meanwhile, in another locale -- that of a department store at the Northridge Fashion Center shopping mall -- a chauvinistic floor manager named Tony takes full-scale sexual advantage of each of his female co-workers, letting all his inhibitions fly out the window in the "secrecy" of the back room. And in the same store, two minors, Holly (Heather Hogan) and Sherri (Spencer Redford), shop for seductive apparel in a twisted plot to seduce and presumably blackmail a high-school instructor. On a darker note, Rifkin follows convenience-store employees attempting to "bring down" a cadre of serial murderers tagged as "The Candid Camera Killers," whose doings attract the attention of police cameras. Other perspectives included in the film include those of ATM cameras, robot security cameras, and all sorts of other surveillance devices of varying ingenuity, all of which catch shocking behavior and are used to follow a myriad of substories. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

      LOOK is POWERFUL! MUST NOT BE MISSED

      I’ve just seen a copy of LOOK over at a friends house and this movie was fantastic! I had this vision in my head of what I thought I was about to see and Adam Rifkin (writer-director) was able to completely blow my expectations. Such a powerful and thought provoking experience. After the end credits started to roll I turned to my girlfriend and said, "This is even more amazing if you think they finished this film, jumped on a plane, and started NATIONAL LAMPOON'S STONED AGE". It just goes to show how much range this man has. He can go from “THE DARK BACKWARD”, “THE CHASE”, “DENIAL”, then write “MOUSE HUNT” for the big boys at Dreamworks. He had me caring for certain characters and feeling DIRTY for having thought I liked them, sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for innocent people to be rescued, and feeling heart broken for them not being saved. Then I took a second to realize these kinds of things happen everyday. Children are abducted, innocent people are robbed at gun point and left for dead. The sleazy department store manager (Hayes MacArthur was GENIUS!). The slacker's turn out to be the only two characters I liked from start to finish (Giuseppe Andrews and Miles Dougal are so talented, they always amaze me). I am looking forward to the DVD from Anchor Bay on May 5th, I hope it is chock full of extras that I can study and have all my "how did they.." questions answered. Adam is a true talent to the film community.
