how far will people go for Fame & Fortune?
Just when you thought the whole reality craze could go no further,“GAMES
PEOPLE PLAY: New York” brings you seduction, bulimia, nudity,
Tourette’s Syndrome and some real f#$@ed-up
behavior, all in what is truly America’s most uninhibited game!
PEOPLE PLAY' is a very special film from a very original director,
grounded in the fast-track pulse of now. It is so fresh, moving,

This is the second time I've seen ‘GAMES PEOPLE PLAY,’ and
I find new things in it each time. I think it's enormously clever
and I am not a fan or an admirer of reality TV. I don't like
any of it. But this film is so clever and unique – and
so different. I just think it's an enormous feat of editing and
technical wizardry. And on top of all that, I think it's very
moving because it tells you so much about these people.
I especially liked the actor Joshua Coleman,

put the audience at ease, and seductive enough to turn the audience
on. Best of all, Coleman makes people want to experience more
of his charm as an actor. He's some kind of blond, all-American,
big screen dynamite just waiting to explode!
The first time I saw this film, I thought – wait
a minute, these people have too many problems.
They couldn't have gone
through that many traumatic things. But then of course, you realize
later on what the secret of the film really is. I don't want
to give anything away, but it's very clever. It really is a remarkable
