Review: Troll Inc.

Troll Inc.

Tracing the rise of the internet Troll, Troll Inc. is the story of a hidden battle between an army of trolls as they battle corporate America, the media and political correctness. Wrongfully convicted of stealing private information, Andrew Auernheimer has become the leader of a background movement. Through his own words and the words of his fellow cultural-saboteurs, Troll Inc. is an eye opening documentary into a hidden world but has a very real influence in our lives.   

To hold a viewer for 80 minutes a documentary needs to have an interesting subject, be well paced and have a fantastic array of interviews to provide context and story. Troll Inc. and George Russell seem to have found both in perfect to proportion to produce a thoroughly enthralling piece of film. Andrew Auernheimer is such a clever yet enigmatic character and although it’s difficult to really understand his motivation, the delivery of his story is full of charisma and he manages to discuss difficult topics with ease and humour.

The scope of the story is fascinating and where many documentaries may focus on the potential crimes of the trolls or even the government, Troll Inc. delves deeper into the motivation of the Trolls and tries to understand why people cause chaos with seemingly no reason, but also just how impactful their actions can be, even if done as a joke or a social experiment.

I very much enjoy a good documentary, but I very rarely wish the story went on longer. Even more so I rarely lose myself as I would in a feature film, but Troll Inc. has that power.  Troll Inc. is a fantastic documentary for anyone interested in technology, the power of the media but also the abuse and role of the government. There’s something in there for everyone and I would pay this the ultimate compliment that I would definitely watch it again.

Films, games, Godzilla and Scott Pilgrim; these are the things that Alex loves. As he tries to make use of the fact he’s always staring at a screen or in a book, you’ll hopefully be treated to some good reviews along the way (though he doesn’t promise anything).
