A lone, masked figure enacts brutal violence on a group of unwitting individuals. Familiar horror story? Think again.

This film is a document of a manifesto in action. It is both a political call-to-arms against the twisted operations of capitalist power that suppresses the many in service of the few, and a disturbing portrait of a serial killer urged to action by global injustice. Politics meets Torture-Porn in a horribly illuminating lesson in globalisation and ethics.

The Manifesto began as the work of a nameless, faceless man who published a site called called globalistagenda.com. He used this site to rant about his anti-globalist views all prior to the Occupy Wall Street movement, which later popularized the same opinions.

Fearing that his message would not be heard the man withdrew from his rants and his blog, but not before vowing to start the last great American revolution. Then he vanished from sight. He is anonymous. Mr Nobody. He could be anyone of us. He is most definitely at large.

WARNING: This film contains disturbing images and dangerous ideas.

This movie is great. I laughed my ass off. The guys commentary is priceless. At one point he was suggesting all the different targets that need to be 're-educated' which encompasses basically everyone. This movie shows what can happen when any particular view is taken too far.

@WORLDPEACE: thanks for your feedback. I guess it's worth pointing out that there are two sets of ideas in the film––the dominant ideology of the military-industrial-entertainment complex associated with globalised capitalism, and the counter-position of Anonymous–– and that you're assuming the term "dangerous ideas" refers to one rather than the other. As for the position taken by the film's subject, I guess it's also worth pointing out that you're assuming the filmmaker shares the same position. Another option is that the filmmaker is deliberately subverting the lone serial-killer trope to present an uncomfortable, problematic, objectionable "solution" to the problems with which the film is concerned. A polemic, perhaps, that is not easy to interpret or navigate. That said, whether or not this approach has any productive value is entirely subjective!

I STOPPED WATCHING THIS MOVIE 15 MIN IN>
"WARNING: This film contains disturbing images and dangerous ideas."
Dangerous ideas? More like retarded ideas. Torturing an army recruiter who is just a sheep would get you nowhere fast, and that's where this movie is heading, nowhere.. fast. To the film maker I say- Grow some balls and make a movie about torturing some ruling elites, not sheeple, you coward.

Signed yours truly,
Last of the SUMERIANS
Oh ya, we still around sucka!

If you tortured the ruling elite you would get nowhere faster. Mr. Nobody believes that scaring sheeple away from working for these despotic industries will have a much bigger impact. He believes that fear and anonymity are his most powerful weapons. But, keep in mind that this is just a serial killer film with a fresh spin to it.

If you only watched 15mins, you don't get the right to give your opinion ;-)
