User Reviews

 
Title is misleading
23 October 2015 | by Kat WebbSee all my reviews

This documentary is not about the deep web in general, but rather more tightly focused on The Silk Road and Ross Ulbright trial.

Like all documentaries based on this subject it gives you clear instructions of how to go on the deep web using Tor and buy drugs using Bitcoins. The reporters always claim its for educational purposes but I don't see why anyone needs a step by step guide on how to buy drugs online unless they really want to do that. I think this is wrong and can only be harmful.

Youtube is full of documentaries and guides like this that claim to be educational in order to prevent them being taken down.

If the media hadn't blown the lid on the Silk Road, there wouldn't have been heaps of school kids buying drugs who didn't know about it before. FACT This is a documentary you do not want your kids to see.
