I suppose everybody needs a release. Even Silicon Valley computer dweebs with generous salaries and aching mouse fingers. From WonderHowTo's favorite filmmakers, California is a Place, a portrait of a bunch of nerds duking it out, à la Chuck Palahniuk's infamous Fight Club:

"In Silicon Valley we have the highest concentration of aggressive people in the United States. And it's a place where all life has been reduced to working in a cubicle and then after work going out to have a Merlot at the Fromage bar. I'm kind of looking for something a little more primitive, a little more basic, something that appeals to the essential nature of a man."
