I bet there are at least a few thousands like me who have a mind that does all the right things for the wrong reasons and for whom things that are forbidden are always the most thrilling ones. And something like Hacking would dig a hundred times intensified curiosity in us than any school textbooks ever did.
So my wicked brain compelled me to make a list of the most amazing documentaries on hacking.

Take my word here, documentaries are much more knowledgeable, easy to watch and fun than the full fledged Hollywood movies.
1. Anti Trust
It is one of the most relatable movies ever on the concept of hacking. The story goes like a computer programmer is very excited for his job at a firm that is based in Portland, it’s nall like a part of being a dream come true until he gets to know that it’s a lot more than what meets the eye and his Boss is into a lot of things that he didn’t think that he would be. This is one of the most fun things to watch on the concept of hacking.
2. Hackers wanted
It is written and directed by Sam Bozzo. This is an unreleased documentary, however, it is leaked on a lot of websites and someone uploaded it on youtube too. This film not only gives a great detail of ethics of hacking but also takes you deep inside into a world of hackers. A world that you once enter, would never want to leave. It is a film that breaks all the stereotypes and takes you into a completely new world altogether. Through the new thrills and adventures faced by Adrian Lamo, this movie is a tell tale of the essentialism of an unrestrained flow of information.
3. Def con: The documentary
It surely is one of the best documentaries ever made on hacking, the story itself is too intoxicating to make you sit at the edge of your seat till the time it ends. It is based on the famous international conference that is claimed to be world’s biggest conference on hacking, though it is not allowed to film it but whoa! Now you can see all of it. Yes, you guessed it right! This is what the documentary is all about.
4. TPB AFK: The pirate bay away from the keyboard
This is a very intriguing tale about Pirate Bay and how a lot of people’s lives get affected by it. No matter what generation of people might be the watchers. This movie is also my personal favorite. Everyone is going to enjoy this tale which is filled up with all kinds of twists and turns. This movie is not just about Hacking but about the entire world, the people, the youth, the responsibility, the drift . . . everything! Watching this movie is like the best use of your time.
5. How hackers changed the world
This documentary is just forty five minutes long and since it is made by BBC, you can know what kind of depth knowledge and efforts would have gone in making it, it basically covers the interviews of the people involved in hacking. This documentary covers all the minute aspects of Hacking and imparts so much of information in so less time. This is highly recommended if you are even one percent interested in the intriguing world of hackers and hacking.
