Critic Reviews for RiP: A Remix Manifesto
A half-baked, poorly argued assault on the very notion of the sanctity of intellectual property posing as cutting-edge cinema.
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.
Audience Reviews for RiP: A Remix Manifesto
Expertly edited and directed, plus being overall well made, Brett Gaylor's RIP!: A Remix Manifesto is truly a supremely fascinating documentary whose ideas are expressed honestly and will surely connect with many younger people in this day and age of copyright regulations, even if it's already somewhat dated in aspects.
A great film on the topic of copyright and remixing. The only negative thing about this film is director/narrator Brett Gaylor's omission of the fact that Negativland actively sought to confuse consumers by releasing their U2/Casey Kasem mashup album with "U2" splashed across the cover in big bold letters. I support their right to invent new art by combining existing source material, but not their shameless marketing tactics.
What a great subject to do a documentary on.
