'Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web'

Being dubbed "the most wanted man online" is a dubious distinction, though one that the Internet business mogul, MegaUpload founder, hacker patron, politician and accused criminal Kim "Dotcom" Schmitz has arguably earned. But as Annie Goldson's doc points out, he's also considered by some to be a resistance fighter in the battle for data privacy and the constrictions of copyright law – something this portrait attempts to make a case for as it delves into his legal battles with the U.S. government and various other authorities. Whether you think he's a hero or a heel, you're bound to leave the film with your preconceptions shattered.
