A series of characters populate Look, their stories interlocking with varying degrees of subtlety. The film adds a novelty element, however, as we watch their interactions entirely through surveillance cameras. The characters range from amusing to utterly creepy and, to the film's credit, most are plausible. Unfortunately, the visual gimmick runs out of steam well before the end credits, and the subplot involving "The Candid Camera Killers" delivers little payoff. The killers are merely employed as a story-linking device; at best, it's tenuous, and at worst, glaringly incongruous. Look gives the lingering impression of a film developed from a single idea that wasn't fleshed out enough to sustain a feature. The shooting style lends interest, but most of the stories end with a dull whimper. Voyeurism only takes you so far, before boredom sets in.
