A big story accomplished on a little budget. There is a constant mystery and suspense throughout the movie. I was very taken with the quest to decipher just who is the villain and which direction the story was going. The actual plot was confusing at times but then when you think you have figured it out a turn happens and our hero David seems to be thrown right back to square one.
The setting is in and undefined near future but if you pay attention it's also a comment on our present time and which direction it's going. The political leaders, the police, federal agents, and underworld characters look just a bit too current. David is a frustrated journalist and decides to create his own website, this quickly becomes trouble for him. And how like is that for today? There are innocents now incarcerated because they wanted to speak out and have been quieted by 'the authorities'. Barrett Brown comes to mind.
This isn't a big first class picture and the story is better than most of acting but altogether it works very well.
