Worth watching, better than most.
I had my doubts upon first renting 'Anarchist Cookbook'. The first review I had read was on this IMDB page and it was not complimentary. I agree that this movie is part 'Fight Club' part 'SLC Punk', but it has to be viewed as its own entity. If you care to listen to the commentary on the DVD, then you will realize a lot of time and cunning was used to make each scene and each shot that you have to watch it a second time to really appreciate it. This is captivating cinema done with a very slim budget. Once the "indieness" is established, we have a worth while film.

For IMDB standards, I would give it a 7/9.
