Nothing is as it seems.
Long before The Number 23 came this interesting, but ultimately confusing film about the paranoia of a computer hacker who starts seeing 23 everywhere. It's apparently based on a true story, so I should probably see it again when I'm not nearly asleep in the theater.
This is a great little film about some of the "bad guys" from Cliff Stoll's story "The Cuckoo's Egg" - a group of West German hackers selling digitized secrets to the communists in East Berlin. The fear, the paranoia, the "hacker" community it portrays...the lifestyle and history of these guys is painted in clear, vivid lines. It's such a shame that this has never been subtitled and released in the US (at least, to my knowledge).
