LOL

81 minutes

Three young Chicago guys try to strike a balance between their women and their telecommunication gadgets, and of course the gadgets win. This DV feature by local writer-director Joe Swanberg (Kissing on the Mouth) seems heavily influenced by Boston video maker Andrew Bujalski, whose charming Funny Ha Ha (2002) also chronicled the romantic fumblings of the "whatever" generation. As a storyteller Swanberg is even more lackadaisical than Bujalski, letting two of his three story lines fizzle out, but his movie offers a sly commentary on how people use digital toys not to interact with the world but to disappear up their own backsides.
