An exploration of Ted Kaczynski's life in Lincoln, Montana in the years leading up to his arrest as The Unabomber.
I have watched this movie once. This was on .
This is a leisurely-paced and rather myopic biopic about the recluse known as the unabomber. Sharlto Copley portrays Ted Kaczynski in an impressive performance which is subtle but features a decent range – expressing quiet seething anger throughout.
There is some repetition in the story, with multiple scenes showing his contrast in lifestyle versus those he seeks to destroy. The screenplay is one-sided, not really exploring his family relationship nor the outcome of his attacks or media coverage.
The standout production dynamic was the great use of sound to convey the dramatic differences between the tranquil life coveted by the antagonist and the monstrous distractions of heavy machinery invading nature; planes, forestry vehicles, snowmobiles and motorbikes.
