Review

"Documentary nuts walk away having seen a window into yet another strange world. And gamers walk away feeling like they had seen seen their life story, with slick editing, a peppy soundtrack, and the seductive polish of an Apple commercial."

Review

"Director Juan Carlos Pineiro-Escoriaza takes a sobering and enlightening look at people who play Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games - MMORPGs - many of whom evidently prefer their online lives to their corporeal ones. "Second Skin" does what the best documentaries do: introduces you to a community with which you may not be familiar." -Christopher Loyd

Review

"Ironically, my first official film of the festival was my favorite—a tiny-budgeted indie documentary called Second Skin. [The filmmakers] covered the wide spectrum of this addictive and increasingly common form of entertainment by expertly juggling multiple storylines (each with a surprisingly involving story arc). This movie deserves to be picked up, and fast. Marketed with the right savvy, it could have a huge potential audience."
