Critic Reviews for Soundtrack For A Revolution
The contemporary music sequences are a distraction from the heart of the movie: truly astounding archival footage of speeches, marches, and demonstrations.
Through vivid archival material and voice-overs, the filmmakers create moving vignettes that, taken together, form a fascinating primer on nonviolence as a political force and discipline.
Soundtrack may very well be the finest, broad history on film of the Southern Freedom Movement years as measured from the Montgomery bus boycott (beginning in 1955) to the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1968).
Tthe film is primarily interested in the music that accompanied this turmoil, which is a bit like covering the American Revolution with the focus on the wigs Washington and Jefferson wore.
Essentially a condensed, lightly airbrushed, skillfully assembled history of the civil rights movement, with musical interludes.
Audience Reviews for Soundtrack For A Revolution
Amazingly sad/beautiful movie. Exceptionally well done. It was really good the way which it portrays the story about the civil rights movement. The musicians chosen to perform the songs were very well selected. It was impressive to see/hear the emotions from all the musicians.
Interesting visuals of archival footage manipulated to make it appear as if the viewer is looking at a 3-d photograph.
My netflix streaming pick for MLK day - excellent, moving documentary with some scenes of MLK that just made me break down....
