Megan Boyle & Tao Lin – MDMA (2011)

“MDMA is a one-shot experiment that begins with Lin and Boyle taking the titular drug and, in what appears to be an unedited two-hour shot, meander around Manhattan, getting lost on the subway and ending up giving each other a sarcastically ironic interview while on the ferris wheel inside Times Square’s Toys ‘R Us.”

“MDMA is 1 hour 54 minutes, shot in real time using the camera from an APPLE MAC BOOK some time in late 2010 in New York City. The film follows Megan Boyle and Tao Lin throughout their experience of taking MDMA (sometimes called pure ecstasy or Molly) while they explore New York City…. The film is simple but not easy. The plot is executing and playing out an idea: Megan Boyle and Tao Lin take MDMA together and film themselves with a MACBOOK. It has no real point. Because of this detachment, the film is soothing because it creates a new kind of viewing. It feels equivalent as leaving music left playing from a record player in the background. I don’t feel obliged to anything while watching MDMA. I am just free to watch. Highly recommended.”
