This had me thinking, what is cyberpunk.

For me there needs to be at least tech that questions what it is to be human.
But many films have this that I would not class as cyberpunk.
Terminator, In Time, and 2001 for example?

Is it the setting then, or maybe the punk.
Does there need to be ‘The Man’ in some form that people are rebelling against, be that the traditional government or corporations?

I am not sure.

Oh this is not a terrible film either:
