Aroview: Astonishing documentary follows the interactions between a New York-based photographer and a young woman from rural Michigan who make contact via Facebook and set off a bewildering series of events.
Ostensibly self-indulgent with a no-frills aesthetic and a threadbare legitimacy, this inadvertently segues into a story for our times that not only cautions the pitfalls of social networking, but finds itself consciously negotiating the inherently exploitative nature of documentary film-making. Or put another way, this simple film gives both its participants and the audience a surprising amount to think about.

5 stars (Exceptional) This is doco making at it's finest, as a long distance Facebook friendship unravels the viewer embarks on an unbelievably compelling journey. The characters are real and engaging. I was left with conflicting emotions, which scores it 5 stars in my book~GenXGirl
