DEEP WEB: Available Today On VOD
You can peruse the ScreenAnarchy archives for complete coverage of Deep Web. Below is an excerpt from Kurt's HotDocs review.Deep Web will give the inside story of one of the the most important and riveting digital crime sagas of the century -- the arrest of Ross William Ulbricht, the entrepreneur alleged to be "Dread Pirate Roberts," founder of online black market Silk Road. The film will explore how the brightest minds and thought leaders behind the Deep Web and Bitcoin are now caught in the crosshairs of the battle for control of a future inextricably linked to technology, with our digital rights hanging in the balance.
You will also find a link to his interview with director Alex Winter below as well.Deep Web tackles ethics, ethos, politics, The War on Drugs, miscarriages of justice, arrogance, agorism and naïveté (on all sides), online communities, government, technology, and while the film clearly has a position on many of these subjects, it makes the idea of condensing things into a narrative without sacrificing the nuance look far easier than it ought to be. That fact that this is possible, and seemingly in real-time, does indeed make the 21st century a strange new land.
