An interesting look at the Cyberpunk sub-culture.
29 September 2005 | by travis-157See all my reviews

While looking dated now, this film provides an interesting insight into the cyberpunk movement of the 80's. The interviews are interesting, if a little one sided and in some cases they are inaccurate, and the boasts in some are quite outrageous. Features William Gibson, Timothy Leary and others.

If you are interested in the works of William Gibson or Neil Stephenson, then you'll enjoy this documentary. I particularly enjoy the use of music and some of the video clips shown. If you are looking for factual information you will need to research further. This film serves more as a 'time capsule' of computer technology and visions for the future.
