Jane Comfort's An American Renditionhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/performance/hot-and-cold-comfort/93/
Comfort pushes scenes just far enough to hug the line between recognition and nervousness. That goes for the reality TV segments as well. The cast puts on ridiculous garments made of household objects that ring familiar with viewers of Project Runway’s car or apartment pillaging episodes. Flip to a model competition, where the challenge is to make the most convincing dead portrait. One is ousted because she looks too vibrant. Sick but strangely believable, if you flip through a current fashion mag full of sallow rag doll models with concave posture.
