MIFF: Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web



The story of Kim Dotcom, the founder of MegaUpload who was charged for copyright infringement and faces extradition.

"Kim Dotcom" is an entertaining documentary of one of the most wanted men in the digital age. The film is less about technology and more a revealing look at the lavish lifestyle of an opportunistic entrepreneur whose antics evoked an infamous mansion raid. Access to Kim's personal archival footage, along with a slew of knowledgeable interviewees, provide a credible insight into the man. While the final venture into politics and the courtroom isn't the most exciting element, it's still an extraordinary addition to the ongoing case. Worth a download.
