As the only film with exclusive access to the Ulbricht family, Deep Web explores how the brightest minds and thought leaders behind the Deep Web and Bitcoin are now caught in the crosshairs of the battle for control of a future inextricably linked to technology, with our digital rights hanging in the balance.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This intriguing documentary about alleged Silk Road website founder Ross Ulbricht may lack balance, but compels interest nonetheless.
Fresh: Narrated by Keanu Reeves, it plunges into the tangled web of secrecy, accusations and criminal activity - with implications for the future of technological freedom.
Fresh: Although it's a fascinating subject, the director doesn't bring much rigour or insight to the complexity of the case.
Thoughtful and intriguing documentary.
I have been waiting for this documentary since it first was kickstarted and it was worth the wait. The style of the documentary, narrative, characters, content, all were engaging and insightful. Highly recommended and well worth the time - if you know nothing about bitcoin, dark web, silk road or DPR, then this is where its at.
"Deep Web" presents the information that led to the arrest and conviction of Ross Ulbricht. All information is presented in what I would consider to be a fair and logical manner.
While clearly focused on The Dark Net and Silk Road, this documentary takes us far deeper into what has become to feel more and more like an on-going conspiracy of governmental and law enforcement regarding the so-called "War on Drugs."
Alex Winter's documentary sheds additional light on the organizations and government that should protect us -- but is most likely doing just the opposite.
Unlike Edward Snowden, who in my opinion is an American Hero, and Julian Assange -- the story of Ross Ulbricht is a far more conflicted situation and person. It seems impossible not to feel torn about him and what he supposedly created. Based on the information we know those conflicted feelings are founded, but this man is not the "criminal" we have been led to believe.
An important film that every citizen should watch, think about and discuss.
