modern cruelties

a few years ago i had this idea for a movie.
it was very vague, actually.
but anyway, it was gonna be based on hightech human cruelties, which have only become possible since certain technical advances had been made.

need an example?

how about ending a relationship by sending an sms?
or a teenager commits suicide by jumping off a bridge while talking to a parent on his mobilephone?
or someone is having a vengeful affaire and sending a mms of it to his ex-lover.

it was gonna be directed by paul thomas anderson.
beautiful movie…

problem is some of these things are beginning to happen.
like recently this guy was streaming his suicide through his website and the media went all jiggy over it.

i mean we don’t want to give people ideas, do we now?
