User Reviews

an excellent documentary on privacy
20 August 2013 | by itsaletterboxSee all my reviews

panopticon puts "out there" the very real need for people to wake up to how much of their lives are.............out there.

not just from government, but from the wider world also.

many, many people have fallen foul because of activities that they considered privileged and private being made known to a wider public, or being used by a government, or other entity.

panopticon is a must see film, especially in the light of the snowden affair which has revealed just how much data is collected, stored, and acted upon.

this data for the most part, generated by people doing nothing more sinister than using a home computer, or smart phone.

i believe an English speaking version of this film would massively increase the viewing numbers.

well done for a great job :D
