Electric, informative, and fun
14 July 2000 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie to watch. I had fun watching it, and respected the movie for everything. A great counterpiece to 20/20's specials. The movie had the visuals, and the interviews. It just felt awesome. It was a documentry, so it had lots of interesting interviews. If you have even the slightest knowledge of a rave, see this movie, and I dare you not to get sucked in to the music and the lights. A must see.

My only problem was that it did not have that much about visual effects. It lightly touched on them, and they are a good part of the scene.

9/10
