Hey guys my friend and i have made a film on Hacking and Anonymous for my film studies coursework however the second part of the coursework is a reflective analysis and film that is similar to ours. Since our film is about hackers (that go for government sites) and anonymous could you recommend a film i can use in my analysis.

Thanks :)

War Games - a whole film based on hacking - and some of the ideas are still relevent today. Weak passwords, etc. It may be "old" but you might find something relevent. Certainly it explains hacking.

Catfish - a film about how people conceal and create new identities through social media. Not Anonymous, but similar.

An Enemy of the people - surveilance, hacking and anonymity in a tense thriller.

V for Vendetta.

While not really specific to government sites, you could mention how hacking is sometimes seen as a magic problem-solving button. Think Lex in Jurassic Park magically booting up the door locks.

Also I'd add a few thoughts of your own, OP, since homework threads tend to get locked unless you add to the discussion yourself.

Thank you guys for the suggestions. I have watched V for Vendetta that is a very good film to refer back too. War games i have heard of, but never actually watched it. Gives me another reason to watch it. I would use matrix or any old sci-fi film but they seem to lose realism and make some scenes really dull.

I also just watched a scene from War Games. I liked the fact that you have this growing tension in the Tic Tac Toe and then this chaotic chain of events. Really sweet

Checking wikipedia's page for War GAmes, it says that the word "firewall" originated from the film War Games.

The Net - Sandra Bullock as a woman whose identity is swapped via computer records as part of a bigger government overthrow... mwa ha ha :( I have no idea how hacking works etc but am pretty sure it's a major theme and it's a decent film in a 'so bad it's good' kind of way...
