(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

TED K is the story of Ted Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber. The film starts with scenes reminiscent of a movie posse on snowmobiles, showing how the modern world has encroached about nature. Kaczynski watches, believing that modern civilization has ruined the world, and then goes back to his cabin far from civilization and people he knows (but which also has a radio and a modern rifle). Kaczynski uses a trail bike to get around in this mountainous territory, and vandalizes power lines (and fancy cabins). He has thoughts both of violent images and of romantic scenes.

The plot advances very slowly because while the individual scenes are long (and scored with popular music of the time), they do not do much to advance the plot. As Ted Kaczynski, Sharlto Copley (probably best known for DISTRICT 9) really carries this film.

Warning: there is some backal nudity, but any frontal scenes are cleverly staged to obscure critical areas.
