Great movie, informative, and appealing, 28 July 2000
Author: cofemug from Seattle, WA

I loved this movie. The music was pumping in all of the right places, and the images just ruled. The rave scenes worked magic, and the documentary was interesting. I think that people who are not into the whole rave scene will enjoy watching the film because of its emphasis for fun. Unless you don't like fun. It even takes the point that not all ravers are druggies (unlike Groove). It is just an intelligent movie that should be seen with those 20/20 specials, and news specials just to get a happy medium. I recommend this movie to everybody.
