Movie review: Anon

How privacy is no longer an issue in the future

A very good movie I watched this week: Anon ( ), especially the dialog at the end of the movie. It taught me a lot the philosophy of privacy. 

Anon: you invaded my privacy, it is nothing. I tried to get my privacy back, it is a crime.
Cop: why is it so important that nobody knows you? 
Anon: that’s what you do. what you look for every day of your life. that’s why you’ll never understand. 
it’s not that something I have to hide. I have nothing I want you to see.

Synopsys (from Wikipedia): In the near future, private memories are recorded and crime has almost ceased to exist. But in trying to solve a series of murders, troubled detective Sal Frieland stumbles upon a young woman known only as “The Girl.” She has no identity, no history and is invisible to the cops. Sal realizes this may not be the end of crime, and it could be the beginning of it.
