Enemy of the State (1998)
USA / English
"It's not paranoia if they're really after you. "A lawyer becomes a target by a corrupt politician and his NSA goons when he accidentally receives key evidence to a serious politically motivated crime.
I like this one, also beeing somewhat realistic (not in every detail of course).
Well, I like this one. I like the cast, the visuals are well done, but
is more important is the plot that I like really much. It's not the most
sophisticated plot of all times, but I think it's quite good, and to some
degree, realistic. Of course it's not possible to move sattelites that
quickly, or zoom in on a videotape that much and still have crystal-clear
visual, but quite some technology seen is realistic today, or in the near
future. This is an hollywood flick, all right, so they have quite much
action and everything looks very easy, steering a sattelite seems to be no
harder than playing a video game, what makes it all seem a bit
unrealistic/sci-fi-like, but today's technical posibilities are quite
and continue to grow, so informing oneself about the issue (I mean the
world issue) is not a bad idea.
To give you some points to think:
- It's routine for the credid card companies to document every transaction
made with the cards, go figure who gets the docs if police is
- Every call / fax done is documented for billing, go figure, who...
- At least for your ISP it's possible to read every unencrypted email you
send or receive, go figure ...
- Today there are MANY cameras in public areas in Great Britain, with
numbers still growing.
- Face recognition software is already being used in combination with some
- Dictation software that can interpret your spoken word and convert it
written text is being sold to you today, maybe some organisations have
better versions at their hands ...
The list could go on, but what I want to say is that one should think
the posibilities and listen to what the politicians say, and what they
to allow the federal organisations.
You want to be able to still _enjoy_ the movie in some years time, not
thinking of it as being somewhat normal just as everyday life, all
