Copyright Criminals (Benjamin Franzen, 2009)

My boyfriend picked this up at our neighborhood independent video store yesterday and I ended up watching it tonight. It'll be late now.

They didn't talk to enough people and they didn't quite succeed at making a coherent piece out of the interviews they did get. I have to say, I found the show I heard about it on NPR more thorough and informative... I might say the length is what makes the movie necessarily choppy but the piece I heard on NPR was shorter than this film... C
