The Circle (1972)
I remember seeing this film at a festival
I just remember many young characters outside, I think, a bonfire, lots of trees, looks like Oregon and the trailer with something about what happens in the circle? I am guessing it may have been shot in 16mm color. It's obvious that people involved loved the idea of making a film and more like a feel of a University film and a very quirky one at that. At this point, it's a very obscure film with nothing else written about it here on IMDb. I would think the number of people who have seen this and remember more would be fairly low and probably limited to the Northwest.
Perhaps someone else can write a little more about the background of how this film was made.
A gun, a video and the Internet - The truth will be told.
This surprisingly, well motivated and tightly scripted story is about a embittered young man who turns to an extreme method of protest via the Internet. Terell (Eugene Byrd) is a computer genius hacker, who returns to New York after an extending absence to face his old business partner, his family and try to bring a little more justice by spreading the truth with his spy camera videos. Olivia Averill (Ali Larter) is a sensual intense Columbia grad student who is driven to find a way to report on social content. Their worlds cross in a very unexpected way that forces Terell to hide his real identity. When his video protests hit the media, he becomes more like a comic book hacker hero whose followers quickly get out of control. Excellent and believable and filled out roles, all around, for the versatile William Sadler as a Senator caught in the crossfire, Glenn Fitzgerald as a savvy but ruthless business partner, Scott Cohen as a really mad, enraged media executive and the very polished Melissa Leo as Terell's mother.
