Peep Holes

The premise of this film to be shot entirely with surveillance cameras promises to play with ideas of cinematic voyeurism and urban storytelling in new ways. However, it remains to be seen if the film can get beyond the gimmick. After all, Cloverfield used the perspective of a hand-held camera traded off among a group of friends for considerably more banal disaster flick purposes. Although the film never explored the way vernacular practices could tie into storytelling either.

Thanks to Peggy Weil for the link.
