Buzz – #HackThePlanet & Hackers 20th Anniversary:
“Incredibly it is 20 years since the release of one of my favourite films – Hackers. Here I talk to its director Iain Softley about how this pop culture gem has gained in reputation over the years.” Mark Kermode: BBC Uncut https://youtu.be/2SM-Su6gcIQ
“Hackers is a perfect example of this phenomenon. It was made at a time when the idea of “hacking” and underground tech culture was a brand new thing, or at least still in its infancy, but it was because of this film that a lot of that subculture grew the way it did. Also, the fashion. WOW.” NERDIST
“You many not know his name, but if you’re a movie fan you’ll certainly know his music: Simon Boswell is one of the UK’s finest living soundtrack composers, whose work has graced films such as Danny Boyle’s debut ‘Shallow Grave’, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s mind-melting ‘Santa Sangre’, loopy Angelina Jolie cybercrime flick ‘Hackers’.”
Now. Here. This. Time Out London
“A darkened room in the basement of the Mercure Hotel in Inverness city centre. I’m looking through a cardboard visor & experiencing something called Google Cardboard. It’s a 360 degree digital kaleidoscope of spectral light & colour. Accompanied by the trippy music of Simon Boswell, composer of film soundtrack such as Shallow Grave and Hackers. Simon is in room as a panellist on Raindance Presents Screenage Hacks – From Indiegogo to Google Cardboard. Clearly enjoying the surreal sight of delegates spaced out on this head lo-fi/hi-tech mix.” XpoNorth
