    Politically charged docu-drama is uneven but delivers powerful message.
  2. 50
    Dawson actually delivers the film's most persuasive performance.
  3. It's a pity that such vital, thought-provoking material has been rendered so lifeless and inauthentic on the screen.

    The street action is vivid, but the dramatics are distinctly not, lending the film an unintended sense of fakery.
  5. 40
    A clever but aesthetically murky remake of Haskell Wexler's scorching McLuhan pastiche "Medium Cool" (1969).
  6. 25
    The street action is a grabber, but the story itself isn't.

    The movie fails on nearly every level. The film is has good intentions and moments of energy, but it's merely a faint echo of the great 1960s counterculture pictures.
