Thought-provoking documentary

10/10
Author: James Dearing from United States

Let me start by giving you some advice: Watch this at home, not in a theater. I was very glad I did because there were several points in the movie where my family wanted to pause it and talk about some idea or concept. If you do see it in a theater, it might be a good idea to bring a pen and paper so that you can jot down your thoughts.

Like most good documentaries, this one makes you want to keep discussing political issues after the movie ends. It presented these issues – net neutrality, common carrier laws, government regulation vs. free enterprise – in a way that makes you want to research them later. It leaves you wanting more, and that is a good thing.

The movie did seem a little bit short to me, at 1 hour 17 minutes, but it packs in a lot of information without ever getting boring. Overall a wonderful effort, definitely worth seeing if you care at all about freedom and the Internet.

I will see this movie within a month; but I am really enthusiastic about its purpose and its promise. Enough for now. Why write? -- because I talked with a principal involved -- and I got all wound up with what these people have done. We (the American people,) need this sort of challenge. The review above this one, by a viewer of the movie, will do for me to make up the ten lines needed to say anything at all. Political documentaries -- seeking necessary reform -- need all the support audiences can muster. As to what that principal said to me it boiled down to the blood, sweat, tears and money this sort of effort demands - if you're going to hit the long ball right out of the park.
