Ep. 73 — HACKERS (1995)
We're concluding our cyberpunk series this week with a look at the seminal '90s flick, HACKERS!
SYNOPSIS: Along with his new friends, a teenager who was arrested by the US Secret Service and banned from using a computer for writing a computer virus discovers a plot by a nefarious hacker, but they must use their computer skills to find the evidence while being pursued by the Secret Service and the evil computer genius behind the virus.
Mostly seen a relic of its time, and known for its complete inability to understand how the internet works, but is HACKERS really an unsung masterpiece or an misunderstood gem?
We'll discuss all that as well as diving deep into the creation of the film as we always do on this week's show!
Next week we've got something special cooked up as we take a look at the film that one our People's Choice Award for 2017 and ask the question: does it belong in the Psychotronic Hall of Fame?
