Raves - very educational
12 November 1999 | by (So. Cal.) – See all my reviews

This movie along with "Modulations" is a very educated, and insightful look into Rave culture across the globe. Interviews with influential DJ's from all over the world, and thoughts from actual ravers, the movie covers all the bases on just what Rave Culture is all about.

If you're a raver, and want to know the roots, check it out.
