A highly disturbing episode...
7 June 2006 | by branikiSee all my reviews

...because so much ahead of its time. The unusual concept of "real-tv-camera-on-the-shoulder" type of film puts the audience in an very uncomfortable position. Despite Brad Davis' overacting , you get that unsettling feeling that what you are watching is actually happening in front of you, FOR REAL!!! You literally "become" the camera and take part of the action. The film gets made while it is shot in an underground world of idle youth lost in punk discos where sex, drug, and rock n'roll are necessarily involved. Don't count on me to tell you the twist ending, though you kind of guess it won't be pleasant for the leading protagonist. But this series got you used to that ironical sense of morality by now. Someone in the team of "Blair Witch Project" MUST have seen this one.
