This compilation of several ?hundred home videos, all shot on July 24, 2010, and submitted by citizens around the globe, is so freshly edited, the clips so free of the usual YouTube Stupid Human Tricks coyness, that it’s easy to get addicted to its clear-eyed celebration of the rituals and dislocating comedy of life in the 21st century. It’s our equivalent of that ’80s art-film kaleidoscope Koyaanisqatsi. What’s transporting about Life in a Day is that it’s so much warmer and less abstract. B+
