Hi All,

I'm working on a project where I want to use movie or film clips occasionally to punctuate a point, and while I'm able to source most of them myself, some just elude me. I'm hoping this great community of folks can help me out.

Current request:

This time I need a clip about one of the following:
an evil corporation or steadily advancing technology

As before, the more specific you can be in helping me find the quote, the better.

Thanks in advance!


Previous request:

Can you think of a specific part of a movie or tv show where someone shows that they have tapped into the power grid illegally? I feel like I've seen this in several films, but they all escape me. Any guidance you can give to what part of the film it's in will be very helpful.

The Throwaways

An unidentified hacker has somehow managed to tap into Chicago's power grid using a volatile program known as "Pantheon" and shut it down completely thanks to a special encryption key that allows him access to the entire Internet and World Wide Web and beyond.


Takes place early on in the movie, but it is only a 90 minute movie.

IIRC, in The Italian Job they tapped into the grid, causing a traffic jam.

One more, Ocean's 11. Not sure where in the movie it happened, but here is the you tube link.

In "Pump up the Volume," one of the things that gets Christian Slater's pirate radio station shut down is that he's stealing electricity to run it.

Needs to be in English?

There's a brilliant film named Powerless from India, but it's in Hindi. Docudrama about an electrician who does illegal, undocumented power hookups for poor clients. But if just want video of terrifying, unsafe electrical work, it is absolutely the best.

Thanks! Neither of these really do what I'm looking for, but they're great. I'll add Powerless to my "to watch" list.
