Disappointingly superficial and irrelevant

Mostly highlighting Jonathan's journey throughout the US visiting all sorts of from nerdy subcultures, it's clear that he's putting way too much content in the movie and as a consequence can only touch upon it very superficially. Many topics are only discussed for about half a minute and then he already moves on. His documentary is sadly exactly like the MTV consumer culture he despises and from which nerds try to escape. On top of this, Jonathan displays a rather average, mediocre sense of humor and keeps nagging about his pet peeve, capitalism, without ever disclosing why he has such a problem with it and he never bothers to come up with a remotely interesting alternative. It would have been better to make a series to give each but also to cut out some less relevant topics which have absolutely nothing to do with nerd or counter culture. You get some nice music choices and some nice nerd trivia but it's not enough to make it worth the watch.

The optimistic approach of a charismatic nerd

Johannes, the central character of the film, describes himself as a kid, who is fascinated by computers and technical experiments. In "Traceroute" you are joining this grown-up-boy on his adventurous journey to places and people, that not only nerds want to visit. A very personal (and entertaining) film, which you want to show your nerdy kid to tell him/her: go your own way, everything will turn out fine.

I'm not sure...

I'm not sure I need radioactive glass harvested by a crazy redneck. I'm not sure I need to experience the energy drink wars of the early 2000s. I'm not sure I need cheese made out of human bacteria. I'm not sure I need burlesque art on the International Space Station. I'm not sure I need to experience ontological panic in New Mexico. But a guy being DICK-SLAPPED BY A DRAGON COCK? I NEED THAT! 7 of 10!
