Storyline

Is "The Man" controlling the vertical, the horizontal and the channel you'll be on? In a privatized American Internet, is big business "Big Brother" or does the free market protect and serve the needs of the average citizen with its invisible hand? With the simple act of swapping files, barbershop quartet baritone Robb Topolski finds himself at ground zero of a landmark case whose outcome will affect the rights of every American citizen. Following one man's personal quest to defend what he believes to be his inalienable rights, BARBERSHOP PUNK examines the critical issues surrounding the future of the American Internet and what it takes to challenge the status quo. Contemplating the future of the American Internet and the inalienable rights under review. Written by Barbershop Punk

I will see this movie within a month; but I am really enthusiastic about its purpose and its promise. Enough for now. Why write? -- because I talked with a principal involved -- and I got all wound up with what these people have done. We (the American people,) need this sort of challenge. The review above this one, by a viewer of the movie, will do for me to make up the ten lines needed to say anything at all. Political documentaries -- seeking necessary reform -- need all the support audiences can muster. As to what that principal said to me it boiled down to the blood, sweat, tears and money this sort of effort demands - if you're going to hit the long ball right out of the park.
