[Fantasia] ‘PVT CHAT’ capsule review: A quest for intimacy

PVT CHAT explores the nature of obsession and addiction.

Today’s technology makes a lot of life’s aspects easier. One of its main pros is how it is able to bring people together. Ben Hozie writes, directs, and edits PVT CHAT, a film about Jack, a lonely man hungry for  human connection and interaction. PVT CHAT explores the nature of obsession and addiction. 

Jack is not so great with face to face interactions. He has very few relationships and his real life friendships are a bit dysfunctional and shallow at best. Jack’s life revolves around internet card games and nightly visits with cam girls.  Can he forge a real bond when he’s paying for it? Hozie employs a series of close-up shots that will give the audience a voyeuristic experience. Frantic and fast-paced, we follow  Jack and his descent into fantasy.

PVT CHAT tells a story of isolation and of the very human need to find friendship. Peter Vack and Julia Fox star in this seedy yet optimistic look at love.  PVT CHAT is playing  at the Fantasia Film Festival
