All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (9)

  • The fusion of fiction and independent journalism adds to the complexity of a story that exposes the 'news' as a narrative cowritten by the government and the TV networks.

    August 20, 2005 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Stephen Marshall's admirable but unfocused new film is set in New York City during the 2004 Republican National Convention.

    June 29, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Marshall says he was inspired by the Haskell Wexler cult classic Medium Cool, filmed at the infamous 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. He has a lot to learn before he'll be anywhere near Wexler.

    June 29, 2005 | Rating: 1/4
  • As any revolutionary knows, there's a big leap between theory and practice, and that leap proves too much for tyro helmer Stephen Marshall's This Revolution.

  • It's the kind of engaged, political filmmaking that is rarely seen today, and it's a welcome and powerful addition to the canon.

    June 28, 2005
  • Director Stephen Marshall is more activist than film theorist, prone to editorializing ('I'm certainly not going to sacrifice profits,' one journalist character sneers) without the equivalent of Wexler's formal rigor.

Audience Reviews for This Revolution

  • Apr 06, 2009
    I found this film to be provocative and thought-provoking despite some radical conspiracy theories prevalent in the film. It is mainly set during the Republican National Convention in NY. It's definitely not cinematographically stunning, but the lack of finesse allows for a realness of the film. In fact, some of the scenes were taken of actual events that occured; including Rosario Dawson's arrest. A strong movie with strong views.
