Kiwis funded the movie "Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web", via the New Zealand Film Commission.

I can't see John Key would be very happy about this.

You're not going to believe it, but the film was reviewed in "Rolling Stones" magazine

http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/lists/20-must-see-movies-to-catch-at-sxsw-2017-w467236/kim-dotcom-caught-in-the-web-w471162

"20 Must-See Movies to Catch at SXSW 2017"

"Whether you think he's a hero or a heel, you're bound to leave the film with your preconceptions shattered."

And "Variety", a famous weekly American entertainment trade magazine

http://variety.com/2017/film/reviews/kim-dotcom-caught-in-the-web-review-1202413013/

"A giant data dump of diverse archival and interview materials shaped into an admirably cogent if cluttered two-hour whole, 'Caught' provides a fascinating albeit extreme illustration of the intersection between fame, greed, copyright and technology in the internet age. Dotcom’s big defense for many of his actions is simply that the world is too slow to change, so he can’t be blamed for taking advantage of those insufficiently on the cutting edge.

But he can be blamed. Not everyone who detects a vulnerability feels the need to bleed it for all it’s worth, then cry abuse over the consequences."

Dotcom is a great disrupter. I think he has terrific entertainment value.
