Great doc, great premise
13 April 2017 | by hunzeSee all my reviews

Jason Scott was hired by the organizers of DEFCON to create a documentary about the hacker con and its 20th anniversary. I think he did an excellent job presenting the event. It's always a bit tricky to do hired work, but also stay true to your artistic perception. This one does it right. It's fabulous to see the different characters, motivations, hopes, dreams, shenanigans.
