Movie Reviews

Essential Viewing for All Patriots!
Jessica Fuller | 06/23/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an incredible film about how seemingly powerless individual citizens can come together to make a powerful statement, one that resonates across religious, class, ethnic and party lines, against criminal U.S. government policies. A moving look at how we are ALL responsible for what our government does, and what our obligations are as citizens to stand up for what is ethical and good."
I saw this, it's great.

"I saw this film on Sundance Channel and it's wonderful. I'm glad it's coming out on DVD now. An important reminder of those years, and of what people can do peacfully if they open their hearts. Buy it and watch it and share it with your friends and family."
Investigation of a Flame is a tribute to an urgent idea
Todd Berliner | 02/25/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Informative and visually exciting, Lynne Sachs's documentary shows the power of protest and re-ignited my interest in a period when Americans were so personally involved in politics that they risked their safety and personal freedom for the sake of humanist ideals. In particular, Investigation of a Flame is a testament to the idea, "Protest is patriotic," a characteristically American idea that our country nonetheless loses sight of whenever it's most urgent to keep it in focus. Her film illuminates an important, and lesser known, episode in that period and helps me imagine that we might, at the grass-roots level, stand up again against politicians who advocate violence and death."
