The Net2003

  • 3.5
Ultimately stunning in its revelations, Lutz Dammbeck’s THE NET explores the incredibly complex backstory of Ted Kaczynski, the infamous Unabomber. This exquisitely crafted inquiry into the rationale of this mythic figure situates him within a late 20th Century web of technology – a system that he grew to oppose. A marvelously subversive approach to the history of the Internet, this insightful documentary combines speculative travelogue and investigative journalism to trace contrasting countercultural responses to the cybernetic revolution.

Excellent documentary work, cutting to the heart of the question...'The Net' isn't merely a film about the Unabomber, Cybernetics, or the evolution of American techno-culture...its about much more. At any given point in the feature, there is always an 'outside' being posited. I loved it.

I'll say more later. This is fascinating.

Fascinating expose of issues that are revealed to be beyond "conspiracy Theories". Too many threads and not enough tying up coupled with how badly I wanted to really here from Kaczynski himself. MK Ultra, cultural marxism, the current manipulation of the populace to accept "fluidity" (SJW emotionalism), priming the education of successive generations to merge with technology and to accept the misguided logic of a World citizenship complete with a one world government; somehow this scenario is not the ultimate totalitarian nightmare?

mind boggling

Raises serious questions in a thoughtful yet provocative manner; a most interesting subject matter for debate.

good.
