Revolutionary, man, revolutionary!
20 March 2008 | by (fairview, nj) – See all my reviews

CHICAGO 10 (2008) ***1/2 (Voices of: Hank Azaria, Dylan Baker, Nick Nolte, Mark Ruffalo, Roy Scheider, Liev Schreiber, James Urbaniak, Jeffrey Wright) Fascinating history lesson by way of state-of-the-art rotoscope animation about the infamous Chicago 10 trial of the 1968 anti-war demonstration at The Democratic National Convention led by "yippie" Abbie Hoffman curtailing into a monkey trial with dubious results and if anything a clear-eyed viewpoint of just how radical things were then and how it eerily reflects America's politics today. While the animation is hit-and-miss (and a bit eerie ala "Heavy Metal") the archival footage of the real-life instigators/participants is truly remarkable and should be seen by all who wondered what it was to live during a revolution. (Dir: Brett Morgen)
