Hackers Wanted is an unreleased American documentary film. Directed and written by Sam Bozzo, the film explores the origins and nature of hackers and hacking by following the adventures of Adrian Lamo, and contrasting his story with that of controversial figures throughout history. The film is narrated by Kevin Spacey.

Originally named Can You Hack It?, the film failed to get a conventional release, according to Lamo, because of conflicts between its producer and others on the team. The more commonly cited reason is a problem with the quality of the finished product. On May 20, 2010, a version of the film was leaked. Lamo has stated that he had no involvement in the leak.

It’s ironic that a film about overcoming barriers, about new technologies, about thinking differently, had to come to the public eye by being hacked out of the hands of people who, after making a film about the free flow of information, tried to lock away that information forever. The truth tends to itself. -Adrian Lamo.

    “Frankly we could own all the master hackers in our own country…”

    God forbid. I feel so much pity for the “patriot hackers” buying into the nationalist bullshit and putting their brilliant skills to such dim ends.
