I stumbled on this film on Netflix Streaming. The punny title caught my attention; the plot summary inspired me to click "play." What resulted over the next 46 minutes was an entertaining mishmash of dozens of different bits of "anarchy," ranging from the modern and viral (the Improv Everywhere movement that has brought you such favorite YouTube videos as "No Pants Subway Ride" and "Frozen Grand Central") to the political and illegal (a group of women disarming a warplane in 1996 to protect the people of East Timor). Nearly every story and every "anarchist" was unknown to me, so I found the overview fascinating, but I was disappointed that the filmmakers attempted to cover so many different tales without fully presenting any of them. This seems more like a series (with perhaps 1-2 stories per half hour episode) than a short documentary. Nonetheless, a good watch - just be prepared to be left wanting more.
