This film both follows the hacking adventures of famous hacker Adrian Lamo, and uses them as a microcosm for the macrocosm of struggles faced by emerging trends of thought - from the criminal to the philosophical.
Julian Assange is one of the most significant figures of the twenty first century. But before he was famous, before WikiLeaks, before the internet even existed, he was a teenage computer hacker in Melbourne. This is his story. In 1989, known as 'Mendax', Assange and two friends formed a group called the 'International Subversives'. Using early home computers and defining themselves as 'white hat hackers' - those who look but don't steal - they broke into some of the world's most powerful and secretive organisations.

I would classify this on the ranking list above pirates of the silicon valley with respect to screen shot and acting as well as historical value and society importance. Bravo for our fellows Australians that have made such a wonderful movie four digital hero of the century for our digital robin hood.
