Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
As I Lay Dying
A telling reminder of just how effective civil disobedience still can be when you tap into a forbidden emotion to unleash the requisite righteous rage needed to challenge an intransigent authority in collective and constructive fashion.
| Original Score: 4/4
As scrappy and passionate as the actions it documents, "United in Anger: A History of Act Up" delivers a living tribute to a movement spawned by death and despair.
| Original Score: 4/5
Those Wall Street occupiers could learn something from this superbly informative and moving documentary about a movement that really got the job done.
A documentary that could have been a lot angrier but aims to educate rather than agitate.
Crucially, the variety of interviewees in Hubbard's doc-men and women of different races and classes-underscores just how diverse ACT UP was in its heyday.
This story deserves more than a merely functional telling, which is really all it manages here.
