Movie Reviews

Superb docu about a counter-culture hero
Jake Draper | New York, New York | 12/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is just superb! One and a half hours of brilliant film making about a modern day hero. Sinclair was a scapegoat for the Nixon administration but proved that if enough folk rise up against the powers that be, things can change - includes great footage from both then and now, some truly brilliant muisc [MC5, John and Yoko, Sinclair's own Jazz ensemble etc.] dynamic interviews and a wholly professional edit, this must rank as one of the year's finest documentary films. Highly recommended."

"very informative piece of history,i did not know much about the white panthers and the political reasons for chasing after john. a well done doc,perhaps someday the laws will change and we can welcome him back to the usa."
