"It was the Rosa Parks moment," says one man. June 28, 1969: NYC police raid a Greenwich Village Mafia-run gay bar, The Stonewall Inn. For the first time, patrons refuse to be led into paddy wagons, setting off a 3-day riot that launches the Gay Rights Movement. Told by Stonewall patrons, Village Voice reporters and the cop who led the raid, STONEWALL UPRISING compellingly recalls the bad old days when psychoanalysts equated homosexuality with mental illness and advised aversion therapy, and

For a movie about a groundbreaking gay rebellion, Stonewall Uprising plays it much too straight.
On the one hand, Stonewall Uprising shows how far we've come toward enlightenment and tolerance since that hot June night. On the other, it reminds us that there are still many minds to change and rights to win.
Pplaces the incident within the context of the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s with PBS-caliber tact and compassion.
Stonewall Uprising is an important documentary -- and a passionate and compassionate reconstruction of the historic standoff between police and pubcrawlers.
At moments it transcends its sometimes fuzzy construction and the spark that ignited a revolution becomes tremendously palpable and galvanizing.
Includes frank recollections and startling clips from vintage news reports, including 'The Homosexuals,' a 1967 CBS special narrated by Dan Rather that characterized homosexuality as 'a mental illness that has reached epidemiological proportions.'
Excellent source of information for those who know little of this monumental occurrence, but for those with no need for a Stonewall riots 101, it has little to offer.
More than half of the documentary isn't about Stonewall at all, which makes for a frustrating 49-minute wait until the uprising begins to rise up.
An excellent and insightful documentary...An inspiring chronicle of the birth of "gay power."
