Goofs

During the montage of songs and disco adaptations taken more and more ridiculously to show the overkill, it shows a clip of "Disco Duck", implying it was in the saturation period that led to the implosion of Disco. In fact, it was popular in 1976, a full year before "Saturday Night Fever" and 3 years before the "Disco Sucks" event that "killed" disco. See more »

Reliving a part of my adolescence
12 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Somehow entertaining documentary about the "Disco Revolution" in the '70's. It was something with subversive intentions, a secret political movement? The question makes sense only because mankind was at the top of the Cold War(but nobody mention this in the film). The truth is that everything was about free love and sexual liberation, including women liberation, black people liberation, gay liberation. And, most of all, was about Music, a very unique genre in the history of music. The Bee Gees, Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, Thelma Houston, The Trammps, Chic, Kool And The Gang, etc., they are all heroes of the history of mankind, not only the history of Disco. And, the leader of all this, a guy called Giorgio Moroder, he is not mentioned at all. That's political, because he is not American, he was born in Europe, in Italy. He took what was best in American black music and rearranged everything and created what was called DISCO. He done it since 1970 in Europe, continuing with Donna Summer in Germany... Much the same as did Sergio Leone, reinventing the Western. And, you know what, I don't give a damn s..t about that "Disco Sucks" event, that did not killed anything, just the minds of those gathered there in that American stadium were dead. In what concerns me, DISCO lives on, is alive and healthy. In my mind, heart & soul.
