A violent, street-fighting, extreme-stutterer becomes a great, powerful communicator. REVOLOUTION seems like just a great story, but it is the first movie in history to be structured around a shamanic ritual, which when experienced by certain audiences, creates an identification with the near death awakening of the lead character and results in radical and instantaneous transformation in the viewer. Lou's violent stutter doesn't get him the respect he deserves. When a head injury robs him of his boxing career and forces him into the far corner of his life, his only hope for the future is as a fight trainer. But the pressure of 30 second round breaks makes him completely unintelligible, and useless as a coach. When he is confronted with the fact that his stutter may be due to his past instead of his mouth, he confronts his demons by creating a situation on the streets of his neighborhood that has never been seen in a motion picture before.

How often do we take time out to really contemplate who we are? What we are made of? What defines us and develops our character? I can admit I really never thought a lot about those kinds of things, but "Revoloution" got me thinking about my past, my life, and how I have been defined.
As a film in and of itself, the movie was pretty darn good, but as a tool or "trigger" to get those juices flowing about our lives...Marvelous.
I urge you to view this production not as a piece of entertainment, but as something more. Something that might help you realize what characterizes you. What got you here, and what made you You.
