Wonderful movie, the script is smart and complex, budget is tiny, ideas are huge. Watched it 5 times, still don't get parts of it, but it's brilliant.
I've watched it about 8 times now, and I'm only 'mostly' sure that I understand all of it. It's brilliant beginning to end, and is sometimes on Netflix.
Kinda cliche but still a fantastic movie about hustling and desperation.
Of course, one simply cannot talk about this movie without referencing, at least once, one of the greatest motivational scenes in movie history.
* Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)
* Revolution OS (2001)
* Code Rush (2000)
* The KGB, the Computer and Me (1990)
* Infinity (1996)
* Antitrust (2001) -- mildly entertaining and fun
At times this has been my very favorite movie.
Has it been done before?
Edit: I checked it. There's an English one too.
