I saw this movie at Cinevegas at Las Vegas and I enjoyed it. Im going to give some of the plot but not all of it.This is one of those types of movies that I have to give the basics without ruining it if I can. First off there is a town in California that has a video surveillance 24/7. The story involves a lawyer and his family, a gas station attendant(Guiseppe Andrews) and his slacker friend hanging around, two teen school girls, a department store manager and his female co- workers, a nerd at work being picked on, a mysterious dark skinned foreigner in aback pack, two carjackers,a school teacher whose working on a screenplay and his pregnant wife, and a sinister man in a cap following a mom and her child. There lives captured on tapes and which ones cross pass for better or worse. Plus you can tell each ones quirk without even guessing were they heading. Adam manages to make the film fresh without being soap operas. But the gimmick is the sex and violence. At least the violence is realistic but the nudity is two much. But they say sex sales! Hey, you cant ignore it people. I found some segments a little preposterous. But I do like the music montage with Andrews playing the keyboard in the store while his friend dances around the aisle. Its kind of a Pop Rock 80's feel to it. I enjoyed this movie very much. Check it out if it comes to theathres.
