    That the e-graveyard holds as many good ideas as bad is the cold comfort that Chin's film serves up with style and empathy.
  2. There were a lot of people who came to regret investing their time and money in Park's brash dream. You won't be one of them.

    The story told by e-dreams is inherently compelling, full of dark humor drawn from a deep well of hubris and historical irony, but the film would be a lot sharper had the filmmakers not fallen under Park's charismatic cyber-spell.
  4. Entertaining as he is, there are many times when you wish you'd been given a few more facts and numbers so you could understand what the young CEO and his colleagues were celebrating or bemoaning.

    The film delivers what it promises: A look at the "wild ride" that ensues when brash young men set out to conquer the online world with laptops, cell phones and sketchy business plans.
  6. The movie is a little claustrophobic -- a marathon of conference calls, frenzied pointing and clicking, and office pep talks.

    Misses the boat by essentially acting as a positive press release for the now-defunct Kozmo.com.
