MC5: A True Testimonial (2002)
Critic Reviews for MC5: A True Testimonial
Though raw and sometimes slapdash, MC5: A True Testimonial goes a long way in explaining why that happened, most notably through the raw power of the band's music and the fiery passion that was bound with its image.
Like the band itself, the movie is loud and noisy and undeniably eye-catching. But like them, too, it fatally can't see beyond the immediate to realize there's a better way of making its point then simply shouting louder than anyone else.
MC5: A True Testimonial should please die-hard fans as well as viewers who have never heard the band and its anthem, 'Kick Out the Jams.'
A riveting, all-elbows- and-knuckles documentary about the proto-punk warriors known as the MC5.
A vivid evocation of a moment when even the ugliest guitar feedback could be taken as a serious political statement.
Audience Reviews for MC5: A True Testimonial
This rocks so hard! Def one of the best music movies I've ever seen. Kick out the JAMs Motherfucker! This has yet to see release - held up in legal (Not unlike Parsnip) But hey, I saw it...
This was really great. A different view on hippie revolutionary lifestyle a lot of America didn't see. Live performances provided by F.B.I. Surveillance were some of the best ever recorded on any band. Finally, a documentary showing a better understanding and great insight to the controversial band that changed rock and roll. The sooner they quit delaying the release, the better for everyone. Required viewing for all fans of music.
