    For more experienced viewers, the tired terrain is badly shot and haphazardly assembled into an audience-testing feature that appears to have no idea how unlikable or unprovocative it is.

    Indie moviemaking reaches some kind of awful zenith of self-indulgence in this scriptless drama, entirely improvised and shot on cellphones.

    It's a shaky-cam meander through an unconvincing relationship, with detours considering the process of making the film. At 91 minutes, it seems very long.

    Though the title hints at a tale of infatuation, Levy sheds little light on interpersonal conflict or why we're such an addictively self-documenting modern society.

    Levy's innovative movie should appeal to mumblecore fans while perplexing mainstream audiences.

    David Guy Levy's movie foregrounds the potential ugliness of modern technology in order to comment on it. But that doesn't make the film's visuals any less hideous.

    Infuriatingly navel-gazing and insubstantial.

    "Just to document yourself being bored is very boring," Enci says at one point. It's one moment of fiction here that rings all too true.

    The real problem here, though, is that noting the it's-all-about-me nature of modern life already feels like a point that no longer needs making. Yeah, we're self-absorbed and shallow; so what else is new?

    Self-aware narcissism has rarely been this unjustified-or insufferable.

    Tedious enough to serve as a cautionary example of the pitfalls of DIY filmmaking.

    It is part of the film's premise that the movies are only a pretext to serve personal needs. Given how little the murky finished product offers an outside audience, this comes across all too convincingly.
