  • The Edukators

    Anyone else seen this: http://www.theedukators.com/ :?:

    I found it a highly entertaining and thought provoking film. Basically - three young anti-capitalists, who have a habit of breaking into rich people's houses to move things around in order to make a Situationalist-style protest against excess wealth, find themselves 'accidentally' having to kidnap a mega-rich businessman who, to their surpirse, turns out to be a sold-out old 1968 revolutionary.

    As you may imagine, some comparisons of 'then and now' ensue, and everyone gets 'edukated' in one way or another by ensuing events. I don't want to spoil it for anyone by giving away the ending, but, suffice to say, it goes off in an unexpected direction just when you think its all got too cosy. Great stuff.

    For an interview with the director, who has some interesting stuff to say: http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/i...tent/pdf/13235
