Ross Ulbricht: Julia, look, the average silk road user is college educated, has a laptop and has access to broadband. More than that, there are seller reviews. Baby, buying drugs off of my site is safer than buying 'em on the street.

Interesting subject, but...
20 February 2021 | by dnw-37See all my reviews

... the movie spends way too much attention on "the cop" and not on the main protagonist. In my opinion, this type of screenplay should not have been made into a movie. The subject matter requires a documentary, not a half-assed, half-fictionalized approach.
