Storyline

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. Written by Bret Carr

Truly worthwhile. Do yourself a favor and go see it.
24 May 2006 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

"Revoloution" has been called "visceral" and "moving" by TimeOut NY, but Jeannette Catsoulist of The New York Times has chosen to mock the movie rather than focus on what it's really doing: forcing people to confront their issues. Maybe she has a few of her own to confront. I'm just saying. ...Don't we all?

Because this movie isn't about the usual stuff.

This movie is about a street kid who transforms his life. This movie is about coming to terms with your inner demons and troubled pasts. This movie is perfect for teenagers to see. This movie is a chance to make your life matter, for once. This movie is about clarity. This movie is about owning the choices you've made and seeing that they're just choices and therefore you can make new choices at any time. This movie is about subverting the dominant structures that privilege the dollar over the community. This movie is about love. This movie is about joy. This movie is about living, I mean, really ...living.

Try it. It's free.
