The Net

115 minutes 5.5/10 based on 2 votes

More of a film essay – of the type pioneered by Orson Welles and Chris Marker – than a standard documentary, “The Net: The Unabomber, the LSD and the Internet” begins with the typical format and structure of a nonfiction film, and a single subject (the life and times of mail bomber Ted Kaczynski).

From that thematic springboard, The Net branches out omnidirectionally, segueing into a series of thematic riffs and variants on such marginally-related subjects as the history of cyberspace, terrorism, utopian ideals, LSD or the Central Intelligence Agency.

Director: Lutz Dammbeck. Broadcast in 2003, also known as Das Netz.
