It premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
No special features have been detailed at the time.
Didn't like this one at all. It was quite possibly one of the worst flicks I've seen all year. I'm not a huge fan of the "reality" genre, but that marketing campaign reeled me and my gf in and got us. It was very tedious, and very unlikable people in it, except the main character. But something tells me that this was all cooked up. Anyway, if you dug the flick by all means pick it up, but this is one I won't be giving a second look.
I just realized that there are a lot of fishing puns in here. : - \
I'm looking forward to renting it. People I talk to loved it. Looked really good from the trailer. Though I'm already well aware that it was falsely advertised. Regardless I still thought the marketing was good.
I loved this movie. I loved I had no idea where it was going and it seemed and could've been real. The lead actor gave an oscar worthy performance. He is just so charismatic and vulnerable...and amiable. You see the full range of emotions. The movie brings a serious question to the forefront about how easily one can create and also buy into an online persona. The trailer sets it up like a horror, which I feel led disappointment for some. It's not...at all. In a way its more sinister in that its a very real scenario that is probably going on everyday, impacting real lives. I'd only view it if you're in to Sundance/Indy type film that are provocative and emotive. If you think this is Paranormal Activity or Cloverfield (I liked both BTW), its not.
