This might just be the provocation that finally pushes
commons-based peer production over the line of being
able to make a feature film.

  "Lulz" (2015) * * 1/2. A brilliant North Korean

  USA to save her husband and child, teams up
  with a California feminist hacker to take down a
  merciless corporation. Inspired by a true story.
