A forceful, vibrant and immensely entertaining call to action.
A half-baked, poorly argued assault on the very notion of the sanctity of intellectual property posing as cutting-edge cinema.
Rip is a dazzling frontal assault on how corporate culture is using copyright law to muzzle freedom of expression.
The film is so wadded full with ideas that they come squishing out the sides.
A healthy punk attitude informs this documentary.
Gaylor shows us a glimpse of what a creatively free world can look like on the artistic scale, via artists like Girl Talk, and on a broader, societal scale via a look at Brazil, which has become a world leader in copyright progressivism.
issues are complex and the approaches to the solution are even more so. This film makes it hard to agree with either side.
There are better guides to the subject than Gaylor, who discusses everything from Napster to pharmaceutical patents without ever varying his dated we-the-people rhetoric.
There is a feeling, as the film goes on, that a more subtle, sophisticated debate is being sacrificed in the interests of a video clip.
As a piece of polemic, it's a well worked doco, using energy, narration and home video style footage to ram home the message. Pity the message is flawed
This documentary by Canadian-born filmmaker Brett Gaylor, who was born at the same time as the internet was conceived, fails to present a rational debate
A movie that manages to cut through the tangled history of intellectual property clearly and colourfully.
What a great subject to do a documentary on.
