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.

This film offers a realistic lens, one that allows any viewer to become the main character "LOU". In becoming LOU we are able to leave our very self involved and to some extent selfish lives to communicate and experience life on a different level a more compelling/compassionate level... Life is the greatest story that we will ever have.... Bret Carr's authentic writing reveals our direct connection to the natural world and reminds us that we are not so much born into this world as grown out of it. Bret Carr examines these fundamental questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What is the nature of the world around me? "Outside us we face a world that is profoundly alien to us in the sense that what is outside "me" is not me, and this sets up a fundamental sensation of hostility and estrangement between ourselves and the so-called external world." (Watts) I believe that this film challenges the hegemony of a certain genre of films. Films today are not made to enlighten instead they are only created to generate a certain profit and to create a quick comedic or action fix for its viewer.
