Critic Reviews for Re:Generation
An astounding exploration of the corrupt media that has shaped today's society into a mindless behemoth that knows more about Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton than it does the C.E.O.s who have made greed into a "positive" trait.
A well-meaning but overreaching documentary that strains to make a Theory of Everything argument about power and powerlessness in America. Ultimately, it fails to convince about much of anything.
The film includes a disappointing amount of the mutual-admiration fluff that show-business types traffic in; everyone thinks everyone else is great and blah blah blah.
Music fans of all stripes should appreciate Amir Bar-Lev's entertaining documentary - and in fact, that's the very idea he's aiming for.
Pleasant but pointless, "Re:Generation Music Project" is a commercial in search of a product.
Audience Reviews for Re:Generation
Its a bit vague and times but is a doc that has more than a few interesting points about young peoples relationship to media, apathy, and activism
Just finished. This was kinda cool. Interesting watching artists of a specific genre creating music of another genre. Big fan of Mark Ronson but I really really like what Pretty Lights did for the country song Wayfaring stranger. And who knew rapping over classical-ish music could be so engrossing.
An impressively executed concept. Some of the collaborations were more interesting to me than others, but I thought that reflected the scope of the project. Anyone with any interest in music will probably find something to like.
