| A Well-Crafted Film
Full disclosure: I am not a gamer. Quite honestly, I haven't played video games since I was a teenager.

But as far as PLATO'S REALITY MACHINE goes, that doesn't matter whatsoever.

In fact, some of my favorite moments of the film occur during the video game sequences. Why? Above all, they are finely crafted. The combination of seamless editing, a soothing voice over, and stimulating graphics creates a hypnotic feel which works as a smooth transition to the various characters' dating toils.

This virtual world is essentially more comfortable than the reality world. The reason being? Because we the viewer can relate to the dating struggles of Mr. Sorensen's characters. The game of love can frequently be difficult at best.

The backdrop of New York City is a great setting, and the cinematography is beautiful. The film is well-acted, the score and music are engaging, and the editing is fantastic.

I look forward to seeing what Myles Sorensen directs next.
