  1. A gripping documentary that uses voluminous period evidence — unedited news footage, tape recordings of SLA leader Cinque's rants — to brilliantly reconstruct the entire freak event.
  2. 90
    Drawing on interviews with SLA co-founder Russ Little and amazing TV news footage, Robert Stone illuminates this fantastic narrative as vividly as it has ever been.
  3. 90
    The story goes on and on, endlessly fascinating to the last - the sensational trial, the convictions, the revelations, the recriminations.
  4. 75
    An insightful time capsule.
  5. 70
    A remarkably clear-eyed look back at a moment in which real revolution seemed possible - even probable - in America's streets.
  6. Stone's film is a case study in cultural analysis that aims at too much and achieves too little.
