‘Although it's a fascinating subject, the director doesn't bring much rigour or insight to the complexity of the case.’ Globe and Mail

‘Narrated by Keanu Reeves, it plunges into the tangled web of secrecy, accusations and criminal activity - with implications for the future of technological freedom.’ Toronto Star

‘This intriguing documentary about alleged Silk Road website founder Ross Ulbricht may lack balance, but compels interest nonetheless.’ Variety
