Every day, across all corners of the globe, millions of users log onto Second Life, a virtual online world not entirely unlike our own. They enter a new reality, whose inhabitants assume alternate personas in the form of avatars - digital alter egos that can be sculpted and manipulated to the heart's desire, representing reality, fantasy, or a healthy mix of both. Within this alternate landscape, escapism abounds, relationships are formed, and a real-world economy thrives effectively blurring the lines between reality and "virtual" reality. First time feature director Jason Spingarn-Koff digs deeply into the core of basic human interaction in the documentary film "LIFE 2.0" by assuming his own avatar and immersing himself in the worlds of Second Life residents - whose real lives have been drastically transformed by the new lives they lead in cyberspace. -- (c) Official Site
This is an interesting documentary about how people lose (find) themselves in virtual reality. I think it is interesting how people explain why they find the game so freeing and how the cost is more than just money, it is physical and emotional costly to jobs and personal relationships in real life.
