After a few really appalling Silicon Valley movies, Hollywood released Antitrust in 2001. The film stars Tim Robbins as a kind of evil Bill Gates and a young Ryan Phillippe as the intern he hires.  It presents an interesting portrait of the cut throat, masochistic behavior that these individuals engage in to reach the top. In many ways the film’s themes mirror the great battle that goes on in Pirates of Silicon Valley, where companies steal each other’s ideas and step on whoever they have to as they clamor for the top spot.
