'Who Am I' is what 'Hackers' would look like as a gritty European thriller

New, 10 comments

What would Hackers look like if it had been made in Germany in 2014? Well, it might follow a group of rebels called "Clowns Laughing @ You" who perform magic tricks for federal investigators, travel in sports cars instead of rollerblades, party at sweet raves, get in police chases, and manipulate the DAX stock market so that its fluctuations draw a big middle finger to investors. Who Am I - No System is Safe is one part old-school Chaos Computer Club, three parts The Fifth Estate, and a dash of Christopher Nolan, complete with a green filter, music by Boys Noize, and a thick layer of sleazy geek chic.
