There are an estimated 30 million surveillance cameras in the United States. On any given day, the average American is captured approximately 200 times. Every one of us is constantly being observed at our jobs, on the street, while shopping, and sometimes even in our own homes. Every one of our secrets, lies, crimes and most private moments are all being recorded. But who is watching us? Look is an award-winning drama from writer/director Adam Rifkin that takes the ultimate look at our ‘Big Brother’ world.

From watching the 'Making Of' that is on the DVD I can see Writer/Director, Adam Rifkin had a bit of a hard time pitching this film and if you think about it there is good reason for it. I mean just going off of an idea it sounds like it might be a very hard film to make look real and even more difficult might be keeping a story flowing from it. Making a film that tells the story by way of surveillance cameras did sound like an original and very interesting way to tell a story so I was very eager to sit down to it and see if they were able to pull this off and I can gladly report that they not only pulled it off but they have create a film that that shocks the senses. There is so much happening in the film that I would not be doing it any justice trying to explain it here nor should I as this is one of those movies that has to be experienced rather than being told about. The film follows several characters in the film as the go about their daily lives, to use the word dramatic is not really giving the film it's due as it is much more than that. The film will make you sad at some of the happenings as well as making you laugh at others. Look is a provocative film that shows the darkest of human behavior and has you thinking about it long after it is over. I got to say with all the below average movies going into theaters nowadays I am surprised this did not get a bigger theatrical release as it is the most original and thought provoking movies I have seen in a very long time. Credit goes out to Mr. Rifkin and his entire crew of film-makers as well as the cast who all did a terrific job bringing this movie to life.I suggest you don't read about this movie too much and instead just pick it up and watch it for yourself because it is one of those rare gems that needs to be seen to know just how good it is.
