Grear way to put faces to names.
24 September 2018 | by drbarbc-526-517466See all my reviews

I watched this immediately after finishing the exceptional book "American Kingpin" by Nick Bilton, which details the creation of the Silk Road as well as the investigation. This documentary was a great way to see the faces of the those involved. I had pictured Ross and others differently in my mind.

If you are interested in the Silk Road, I would not start here. Start with the book, it's the best of nonfiction, in that it reads like a novel, a real page-turner. Then, check out this documentary. The story of the Silk Road is compelling and well worth your time.
