Thoughts on I Blame Society
Thoughts – I Blame Society is mix of found footage in a style of a documentary, looking to show how quickly a desperate filmmaker will find themselves spiralling into a world or criminal activities to find a way to make a movie of her choice. The story doesn’t seem to get the biggest impact it is going for, looking to try and bring through a shock value, without hitting the try creepy levels. It could easily be compared to ‘Creep’ with the nature of Gillian actions, while trying to have a bigger message about what is going on in society. The performances are made to feel natural for the characters we meet, which does help give a nature feel about the project. It is not an easy watch because the nature of the Gillian character goes from ambitious to psychotic quickly.
