4.0 out of 5 stars Self-indulgent yes, but there's brutal honesty here 6 Feb. 2014
By P. Mann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Filmmaker Katherine Brooks turns the camera on herself in this film. After surgery, Brooks put out a notice on Facebook saying that she would visit the first 50 people to respond. Soon, she had a cross-country itinerary. This film follows her on that journey.

At first, I expected a documentary that showed us the variety of online "friends" she had. I expected a few poignant moments, a fair amount of mutual admiration, and perhaps some unintended humor. I thought there might be some mockery of the seriousness with which people treat their online relationships, but I thought it possible, too, that I would see the opposite: a celebration of how real these relationships can be. As it turned out, there was none of the former and some of the latter, but in neither case was I fully prepared for what this film showed me.

Some of the interactions were truly touching, especially those of lesbians (sometimes that's clear, and other times, I assume) who nearly deified Brooks, seeing in her a voice they did not find elsewhere. For them, Brooks seems to be a hero, a friend, and a counselor. There is nothing romantic here--just honest human interactions. One interaction reunites Brooks with a childhood friend for whom Brooks's sexuality apparently proved too much.

But the heart of the film is Brooks herself. Throughout much of this, she is profoundly depressed--suicidally so at times. She comes across as a very fragile person, despite her strengths. I see that another person called the film "self-indulgent," and it's hard to argue with that point. But that self-indulgence is not necessarily a weakness. In fact, it's what gives the film its greatest power. Watching, I was completely mesmerized, and the experience felt extremely intimate, for I was seeing a side of people that is almost never shown, a side, indeed, that was once considered shameful to show. The result is an apparently brutally honest self-portrait and a film that I found impossible not to watch to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, Life-Changing Documentary 9 Feb. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
American film writer and director Katherine Brooks decides to set out on a journey to meet 50 of her facebook friends. While recovering from surgery, Katherine was feeling lonely and realized she hadn't had a hug. Brooks posted a status update on her facebook page that she would be willing to go and meet the first 50 people who responded to spend the day with them, and film the whole adventure. The main message of the film is to show people that we spend way too much time on our computers and not enough time (if any) with "face 2 face" interactions. I found the film very inspirational. I truly loved it! Katherine was very real and honest and you feel like you are on this journey walking beside her. As I listened to the different struggles of both Katherine and her facebook friends, I realized that we are not alone with our own personal struggles and there is such an importance of having "face 2 face" interactions with our friends. Excellent film. I highly recommend it! 5 stars for Katherine on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immensely Inspiring 19 Aug. 2013
By MS000039 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This documentary is extremely relevant in a world where our lives and connections have become increasingly digitized and virtual. What moved me most about the film was that it was a real slice of a person's life, filmed in raw honesty by an incredibly courageous artist. For the 112minutes of the film, I felt like I was walking next to someone and could feel the joy and anguish as real emotions. Nothing is airbrushed to make it palatable to the greatest number of possible viewers. No place or emotional landscape was left unexplored - that takes a great deal of courage and is what inspired me most. This is a documentary, but it is also a great piece of art. Job well done to Kat Brooks, you are my newest hero! I would recommend this to anyone asking the difficult metaphysical questions in their life, as one person's journey to find meaning again..

5.0 out of 5 stars You Are Not Alone 23 July 2014
By Wendy P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Director Katherine Brooks was brilliant by coming up with the idea of meeting her 1st 50/5000+ virtual friends on Facebook who responded to her status update. She is going through a rough time one of it was no one visited her when she was recovering from a surgery and was feeling lonely and hasn't had a hug for a long time and was grateful for her to share her experiences in this film and how those people she have met inspired her to be strong and to live life to the fullest. I have definitely learn alot from this film. I highly recommended it

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, Inspiring movie to rid yourself of Electronics 25 Mar. 2014
By CM - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This movie is a must see. If you ever felt the need that you needed to make a call or go see someone, this movie will re emphasize that. Put the social media away and reconnect with people, the ones that matter, not the ones that dont is the takeaway. And get rid of things that dont matter. Katherine Brooks is a fabulous film maker and awesome person. Keep on with real movies, and real people
