The Anarchist Cookbook
A movie about a young honors student-turned-anarchist, Puck, and his group of anarchist friends living peacefully in a Dallas commune until a nihilist, Johnny Black, appears with The Anarchist Cookbook and completely destroys their way of life.
This is a rather mixed bag. A bunch of drop-outs and social misfits live together in a commune in Dallas, spending their time finding lame ways to "fuck the system" and "stick it to the man", until the arrival of the mysterious anarchist Johnny Black. For a long time it just feels like pretentious, pseudo-Fight Club anti-government drivel, with some painfully bad dialogue and rather poor performances. But things start to pick up in the third act, leading to a quite satisfying conclusion. It's manically edited, and visually inventive, but overall it wasn't as interesting as it wanted to be.
