In today's world, it's incredibly important to know just how anonymous (pun intended) people really aren't when online. Whether you oppose these proclaimed "hacktivists", or admire their creative way to resolve a felt injustice, there's a lot of quality info here. It's an easy and engaging watch. Working in fraud, I couldn't be more surprised for how many people are so careless on the internet.
The viewpoint is fairly biased, but there's nothing to suggest a significant revolution just by watching the film. The only truly horrifying part is how many hipsters are present in this documentary. Kidding of course.
