Peep TV Show (NTSC Region 1)
From Japan comes this disturbing film that intentionally blurs the line between documentary and fiction. Two mixed-up social misfits, Hasegawa and Moe, have a meeting of the minds when they run into each other on a Tokyo street. Hasegawa is secretly shooting video of unsuspecting people, which he then broadcasts over his Internet site, called Peep TV. Moe, who dresses in the ultra-modern fashion known as Gothic Lolita, has watched Peep TV web site and wants to join Hasegawa’s voyeuristic enterprise. Together, the jaded couple takes the concept of reality TV to a new, hideous level. Director Yutaka Tsuchiya weaves the story of Hasegawa and Moe around real images of our modern world, including footage from surveillance cameras and news clips from the terrorist attacks on 9/11. This tapestry of factual images and fictional storytelling offers compelling insight into our media-driven society and how it rules our lives with images of fear, terror, and torture.
