I think everyone loves a hacker movie occasionally. Cinema is a medium that has always been responsive to the day-to-day innovations and transformations of the world around us. It has successfully managed to cope well with this fact, and blend with them strikingly like no other art form. Computers and related technological developments were a massive leap for the entire humankind. That advancement soon started to reflect in cinema.
The science-fiction genre was the one in a way benefitted mostly from this; we saw huge, even substantial changes in the way in which film started being shot. Hacking is one of the latest addition to this advancement. Though, hacking (not the technical one) has been active in film ever since in different modes – even though it did not exist then in the name. Here, we are going to look at the list of some of the top hacking movies ever. You can watch some of these best hacker movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Paranoia 1.0 (2004)
‘Paranoia 1.0’ is an engrossing, unconventionally entertaining tale of a computer programmer. The film’s title itself will pretty much get one into the right mindset. It has captured the corruption of mass media advertising through hypnotizing imagines and several overwhelmingly powerful performances. The music sets the mood perfectly adding a somber eeriness to the movie and the setting lends a discreet decrepit feel as well. It raises many uncomfortable questions, such as lack of corporate morality, passive consumerism and abuse of a person’s privacy. There are no easy answers and this film does not try to offer them.
