Swoon — Recent Press For WE LIVE IN PUBLIC!

By IndiePix. Filed in Buzz  |  

Check out what some journalists and bloggers have had to say on behalf of WE LIVE IN PUBLIC recently.  Links included wherever they were available — some of the press has not been made available online yet!

Empire Magazine
“There is no doubting [Josh Harris'] grasp of the fame-obsessed, gadgetphile psyche… frantically compelling… chilling. [FOUR STARS]“Picture 2

The List
“Harris occupies the dangerous netherworld on which genius and mental fragility occupy a precarious balance.  WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is compulsively addictive, if remarkably unsettling as things get ugly.”

Heat Magazine
Heat’s Top 10 Films: The Best Films To See In Cinemas Right Now!
“Ondi Timoner, who made ace doc DIG!, succeeds again with a study of a bonkers… internet entrepreneur.”

Rock Sound
“Exploring the genius behind Josh Harris, a man who could predict the future of the internet, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is an interesting and thought-provoking documentary.”

Shadows on the Wall
“In documenting the story of one of the internet’s chief innovators, filmmaker Timoner explores the profound way online communities have changed Western society. It’s a fast-paced, entertaining movie, and it really makes us think.”

Huffington Post
ReThink Interview: Josh Harris — Nostradamus of the Net Tells Your Online Future
“The timing is right for Ondi Timoner’s excellent new documentary…”

Review: WE LIVE IN PUBLIC Profiles a Web Eccentric
“Ondi Timoner always looks for the love and humanity in the subjects of her documentaries…”

Telegraph (UK)
Why It’s Impossible To Commite Digital Suicide – Even If You Really, Really Want To
“[WE LIVE IN PUBLIC] is part history lesson, part cautionary tale… I was gripped, sickened, horror-struck.”

Electric Sheep
WE LIVE IN PUBLIC: Interview with Ondi Timoner
“Excellent… WE LIVE IN PUBLIC offers a fascinating insight into the way that living through technology can affect our physical lives and personal identities”

Slash Film
End of an Era: Miramax President Quite, Disney All But Shutters The Label
“The big-ticket indie represented by Miramax is almost a dinosaur… and there’s been a great deal of commentary in the past six months about the death of the American indie. But if it is truly dying, then how did we get Big Fan, World’s Greatest Dad, Precious, We Live in Public, That Evening Sun, Black Dynamite (bought by Sony Classics, but not made by them) and many other true indies this year? The landscape is changing, and fast, but it isn’t dying. This is a changing of the guard, if a difficult one.”

Control Your Screens, Or Your Screens Will Control You
“Back away from the screen. Turn the cell phone off and walk outside for at least one hour. Do it now…”

Sound Screen

“[Josh Harris] decides to launch a ‘social experiment’. In return for abandoning their lives for a month the prisoners (for once you are in, you are not allowed to leave) are granted free food and drink. There’s a cereal bar! And an arms room bursting with all manner of guns, rifles and weaponry! It doesn’t take long for events to spiral out of control….”

Fuck Off Film
“I found this documentary just fucking fascinating… this is a great watch and for me one of the surprises of the year.”

The Blarg
Quick Movie Review: WE LIVE IN PUBLIC
“[WE LIVE IN PUBLIC] left me feeling embarassed for Harris, ashamed of what humans are capable of, and terrified for the future that lies ahead. I can’t wait to see it again.  Big Brother is now.”

Imagine This.
“WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is the most f*cked up movie i have ever seen, because it’s real and it’s happening.”

Mellotron Sounds
“If you get the chance to catch this on a big screen, jump at it. This one seems like it very well could define a generation…”

The Web And Me
“[WE LIVE IN PUBLIC] did speak to some of the fears I have about extreme Internet use. One of these is my worry about the effects of obsessive use on human interactions and other behaviours… Yes, Google Streetview is cool, but if I can see the pansies on my front porch, what do the authorities see? (Hi guys!)”

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    One thing I’ve noticed is the fact there are plenty of beliefs regarding the lenders intentions while talking about foreclosed. One myth in particular is the bank wants your house. Your banker wants your money, not the house. They want the funds they lent you having interest. Averting the bank will still only draw any foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your write-up.
