Becca is a no-budget New York filmmaker with a mission: stitch together a documentary that delves into the private lives and cyberfantasies of subjects whose fates converge on a frisky, unauthorized university webpage. Created by the cynical Marcus B. as a prank, the steamy URL becomes the launch site for an amusingly mercenary crusade for the truth. Among the exposed are a closeted gay Japanese student and his unsuspecting fiancee, a predatory professor with a habit of posting nudie shots of student conquests online, a forty-something divorcee who cyberdiddles a teenage duo named Tom and Jerry, and the gutsy Japanese exotic dancer Shino who calls every bluff with a cheesecake smile. An affectionate, funny, and often nasty look at alter egos and alternative sexuality, Love Machine asks all the right questions about sex, lies, and the internet. --Kara Knafelc
