The Anarchist Cookbook is a dark drama film from 2002 that explores the gritty underworld of political activism and rebellion. The film is directed by Jordan Susman and stars Devon Gummersall, Dylan Bruno, and Gina Philips. At its core, The Anarchist Cookbook is a story about a young rebel named Puck (Gummersall) who is disillusioned with the world around him. He is a true anarchist who is convinced that the only way to change the system is through violent revolution. Puck spends his days holed up in his seedy apartment, reading anarchist literature and dreaming about the day when he will strike a blow against the government.

One day, Puck meets a beautiful young woman named Karla (Philips) who shares his revolutionary vision. The two of them quickly become lovers, and Karla convinces Puck to take his activism to the next level. She introduces him to her friends, including the charismatic Dax (Bruno), who teaches Puck how to make bombs and other weapons.

As Puck becomes more enmeshed in this world of violent rebellion, he begins to realize that his anarchism is not as pure as he once believed. He starts to question the morality of his actions, and wonders if the people he is targeting really deserve to be attacked.

Meanwhile, the FBI is hot on Puck's tail. A seasoned agent named Johnny Black (John Savage) is determined to bring him to justice, despite the objections of his by-the-book partner Jolly (Steve Van Wormer).

The Anarchist Cookbook is a tense and thought-provoking film that raises important questions about the nature of political activism and the effectiveness of violent revolution. The film is shot in a gritty, documentary-style manner that lends it an air of authenticity. The characters are complex and fully realized, and the performances are top-notch.

Despite its controversial subject matter, The Anarchist Cookbook is not an endorsement of violent rebellion. Rather, it is a cautionary tale about the dangers of extremism and the importance of questioning one's beliefs. It is a powerful and provocative film that will leave viewers thinking long after the credits roll.

The Anarchist Cookbook is a 2002 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 41 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0 and a MetaScore of 36.
