“Something must be said for the scoring of the film. To cover a complex topic like Bitcoin, a film must utilize as much in the artist’s toolbox as possible to play upon every dynamic and composer Simon Stevens did an excellent job. The music was successful in providing the optimistic overtone to a mysterious and fast paced world of technology, crime and politics.”
