Some people find this mix of Internet porn and corporate spying easy to hate. But look closely at the hypnotic images presented by French director Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep), and a potent film emerges. Connie Nielsen, as an American exec for a French video company, fends off a deceitful assistant (Chloe Sevigny) and tries to acquire a Japanese 3-D animated porn site. Extras include astute commentary from Assayas and a cool feature with Sonic Youth on the making of the soundtrack.
