Second Skin

Second Skin
Second Skin is a documentary showcasing the lifestyles of a number of people heavily involved in the world of MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). The trailer only seems to feature one guy that is particularly "crazy" - the rest may seem odd on some level but that one guy really sticks out.

This is yet another documentary in the vein of Darkon or Drakmar but I welcome it - such a bizarre subject with fascinating characters.

  • I predicted years ago that mmorpgs would someday replace recreational drug use. A friend of mine got his dad into Warcraft and he consequently stopped drinking, but he sat glued to two gigantic 22" flatscreen monitors, smoking cigarettes for hours and hours on end. I think they are addictive in the sense that anything can be addictive, but those games definitely fill a void in a lot of people's lives. It's scary. I'm into seeing this film.
