Storyline

We Pedal Uphill paints an uncompromising portrait of a country at odds with itself-America, post-9/11. In his tapestry of today's human landscape, Writer/Director Roland Tec focuses his unique lens on an assortment of lives altered forever by recent events. The cast of characters brought to life in this film is as varied as the geography they inhabit, displaying their power to amuse, delight, disgust and haunt as we question the very meaning of being an American.

Entertaining and lighthearted, not the weighty, life-altering work of genius some see
4 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We Pedal Uphill is entertaining enough to keep me watching, which is not a trivial accomplishment considering the fact that I probably have some form of ADD, at least when it comes to watching movies. Unlike other reviewers, I was not bowled over by its power and profound insight into how neurotic our country has become in recent years. Maybe it's because they saw it while Bush was still in office and I didn't.

One of the best things on the DVD is Roland Tec's commentary. It is lighthearted and intelligent and does much to dispel the rather pompous and weighty view people seem to have taken of his movie. He and his collaborators talk about how political some of the earlier-filmed segments were in comparison to the more relaxed and less paranoid view of some of the later segments (in order of filming, NOT of presentation).

In general, the movie is entertaining and well-constructed; but it's not the work of profound, life-altering and transcendent genius some reviewers say it is. The title segment, in which PR folks agonize over an upcoming Presidential cycling photo-op, is hilarious.
