    An interesting look at the compartmentalization and placelessness of suburban society, while it begs the viewer to think about the meaning and representation of community.

    I was surprised to learn that some sequences were shot in Oakville. I thought they were all from the Calgary burbs. But then, that's the point of the film: how Suburbia is all interchangeable...
