Haight-Ashbury real-time documentary
6 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

REVOLUTION is a poorly shot, edited and produced picture. Nonetheless, it's a valuable document of the times, for it was shot real-time in San Francisco circa 1967. One can't get a better first-person eyewitness account of the era. As cinema, it's rather boring. The filmmakers meander all around town filming (sometimes endlessly) whatever they see, and, more importantly, WHOever they can talk to. Some of the footage is priceless and real. Others, like an acid trip dressed up with panning and zooming camerawork revolving around Fruits, Feet and a Cat (you GOTTA see it to believe it!) is hilarious in its ineptitude. For those interested in the era, this is a historical must. Others, beware.
