About the Movie
Who is Taylor? That is the question filmmaker William Dickerson tries to answer in this metafictional satire about a quirky and charismatic lifestreamer. Taylor is an open book who magnetically draws others into his world where public and private are one and the same. But as Dickerson pushes Taylor to delve deeper into his traumatic past, the story takes an unexpectedly dangerous turn.
Funny and offbeat… check it out!
I really liked this movie! It kind of has a Catfish vibe to it (which is why it was recommended to me), and yet it's totally different and unique. Taylor is an interesting guy, to say the least. He is a struggling actor who clearly wants to be in front of the camera any possible way. He basically decides to share every aspect of his life on the internet in order to reach his "audience." But even when you think you understand exactly who he is and what drives him... it all gets turned upside down.
I also enjoyed the minor characters. There is a really funny bit in the middle when the director of the film realizes he's onscreen as much as his lead actor. I don't want to spoil it, so you should probably just check it out on your own.
If you're looking for something different from the run-of-the-mill popcorn fare, give this little gem a watch.
