A documentary that explores the downloading revolution; the kids that created it, the bands and the businesses that were affected by it, and its impact on the world at large.

Who can ever get enough David Boies! This film needed more Boies. Also, it was great to see Sean Parker evolve from teenage geek to slick, young entrepreneur. While Shawn Fanning has largely dropped off the map, Parker is a story all in himself, with his various projects (including Facebook) and involvement with the CIA (which was ignored in this film).

Alan Scherstuhl of The Village Voice states: "The doc is only about as revealing as a middling magazine article on the subject." There is truth to that. Nothing here will be shocking for those who followed the story when it happened, but it is nice to see the story arc all in one place.
