Live! (2008) Trailer
A television executive (Eva Mendes) develops what she hopes will become the most watched television show of all time, the ultimate reality show called "Live!" where contestants play Russian Roulette with a loaded gun.
As she struggles to overcome the challenges by the broadcast authorities, her network, and the show's advertisers, a maverick documentary filmmaker records every detail of her glamorous, high powered life.
The documentary filmmaker then becomes involved in the making of the show by creating biographical segments about the contestants, who include a young, struggling writer, an extreme sports star, a man trying to save his family's farm, an aspiring actress, a former super model turned performance artist, and a young immigrant determined to help his family.
"Playing like "Man Bites Dog" meets "Network" retooled for the current media climate, well-cast venture from Oscar-winning docu vet Bill Guttentag incorporates its lacerating commentary about reality TV and fame into a suspenseful fake-docu format." VARIETY
"Hilarious... Live! will show viewers of The Apprentice that "you're fired" can have a very literal meaning" SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
