Jonny Lee Miller,
Documentary focusing on the "Cyberpunk" phenomenon. A movement inspired by the "Neuromancer" book series of William Gibson.
I liked the documentary, cause it features a lot of people that were dubbed "crazy" by the "normal society". Computer Hackers, techno musicians (Front 242), computer artists (with some, yet, very zany or cheesy looking animations :D) and many more.
William Gibson talks a lot about the background of his books, Dr. Timothy Leary gets screen time and talks about the "Internet Revolution" - very provident for a man of his age.
Overalll a very strange, sometimes weird, documentary with a semi-scientific touch. Amusing and very disturbing because of a subtle picture distortion that overlaps complete passages. It predicts parts of the "Matrix"-story and focuses on drugs and electronic subculture.
