The Washington Post: New movies to stream this week: ‘Ted K,’ ‘Here Before’ and more

In “Ted K,” Sharlto Copley (“District 9”) delivers a mesmerizing psychological portrait of Unabomber Theodore “Ted” Kaczynski, whom we first meet well after he left civilized society to establish himself in a Montana cabin without electricity or running water. This isn’t a police procedural about the years-long FBI manhunt for Kaczynski, or even a standard serial-killer biopic.

Rather, we watch as the reclusive protagonist’s “impotent rage” at the intrusion of technology into his life slowly evolves from local vandalism to mailbomb-building violence directed at those he perceived to represent the ills of the modern world.
