Steal This Movie (2000) is an American biographical film of 1960s radical figure Abbie Hoffman. It was directed by Robert Greenwald and the screenplay was written by Bruce Graham. It is based on a number of books including To america with Love: Letters From the Underground by Anita and Abbie Hoffman and Abbie Hoffman: American Rebel by Marty Jezer. The film follows Abbie Hoffman's (Vincent D'Onofrio) relationship with his second wife Anita (Janeane Garofalo) and their awakening and subsequent conversion to an activist life. The title of the film is a play on Hoffman's 1970 counter-culture guidebook titled Steal This Book.

Abbie Hoffman later stated he was an Anarchist, but a very different one. He was less of a philosopher and more of an activist -- he's not your Chomksy or Kropotkin.
It shows the life of a revolutionary who goes underground and tries to keep on while being under constant pressure from the government.

I just finished the movie and I can definitely say it was both brilliant and inspirational. His speech at court in the end of the movie was amazing.
Watch it!

Yup, that's where I watched it. I don't know of any movie places that would have it, but Barns and Noble and Borders have Steal This Book, which is a revolutionary guidebook by Abbie Hoffman.
