We 3

We 3 ★★★

The December Project: Film #61

It's a great shame that We 3 isn't a better film, for the ideas it carries are so strong and the points it has to make so important. Looking at a group of students who, having pitched a reality TV show to their communications class for an assignment, live it themselves at the urging of a website keen to push a marketing opportunity, it's a film with its fingers set firmly on the pulse of modern media, yet it's so muddled by sloppy characterisation and haphazard plotting that it's hard to take anything it has to say the least bit seriously. How strange that an original idea quite so interestingly and intelligently conceived could be accompanied by such amateur writing. It's an entertaining experience, overall, but it ought to have been a great deal more.
