  1. sark's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    "Revolutionaries are freaks." And as this documentary about self professed "freaks" proves, they are the retarded brainwashed liberal frankenidiots who are easily triggered by racial identity politics and class guilt. They protested the Vietnam War which I agree was totally unjust, but they continued to bomb, steal etc after the war. These are SJWs of today, George Soros' mindless manipulated pawns of the NWO.

  2. Marco Della Motta's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    A fascinating, even spellbinding portrait. Political junkies, US History junkies, and anyone interested in the history of countercultures ought to watch this.

  3. caitlin.f's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    really good. loved hearing from the actual participants & seeing where they are now. all of this rings so very true today.

  4. ShawnD's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    Well-researched and briskly paced, this doc gives a sympathetic view of the 70s radical terrorist group. Those who chose to talk to the filmmakers are understandably reluctant to go into details of their actions. 30+ years after their involvement the regrets are many. They regret the lives they damaged, but also their own naivete and lack of success. The unanswered question at the center of the film, who funded them?

  5. jordi torrent's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    great documentary about a time and a group that we know partial truths and full body hegemonic propaganda. these were kids who marched along their convictions. not an easy task. not necessarily the right path. but they did it, and continue to do it now.

  6. El Biffo's rating of the film The Weather Underground

  7. David R Williams's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    The perfect companion to a post-Trump "Merika. Maybe its time to start blowing shit up again. Just a thought. Probably a whole lot more difficult in post-9/11 surveillance state USA. I wonder who's reading this right now?

  8. ronny's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    solid, standard-style documentary. (how many use that same vertical panning shot of endless napalm dropping on Vietnam?) it's actually pretty impressive how swiftly, methodically, and (relatively) successfully the organization switched from anarchistic violence to nonviolent building bombings. they were far from perfect—and perhaps not as effective as they'd hoped—but i still admire them.

  9. chris budden's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    This American film does a great job showing who The Weather Underground is and what they were truly capable of. These people used acts of violence such as bombings and rioting in the streets to protest the war overseas. Sam Green and Bill Siegel do an awesome job of combining videos, photographs and interviews to show what took place during the civil rights movement.

  10. Richard Doyle's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    A really compelling documentary about the radical offshoot of the SDS responsible for a series of bombings of public buildings and for breaking Timothy Leary out of prison and smuggling him to Algiers. Timely viewing since American society seems to be heading back towards a time where extreme political division creates groups like this.

  11. 2multo's rating of the film The Weather Underground

  12. Loz Loory's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    Good doc that cleared up the disordered history in my mind. I have seen films that conflate the Weather Underground with SDS. SDS existed for almost a decade as an enormous non-violent student org, long before the Weathermen group emerged. In films there's also a conflation of the Black LIberation Army with SDS & the Weathermen. Only the BLA was responsible for the murders of police and bodyguard during a robbery.

  13. Francesca Gavin's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    thorough, informative, fascinating stuff

  14. The Boreal Chorus's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    What starts out almost too slowly as a deliberately tedious recounting of misguided idealism and romantic rebellious youth creating their own inevitable and pathetic undoing blooms into a deeply provocative exploration of revolutionary tactics versus social contracts, dissection of national temperament, individualism versus freedom, as well as the unbearable heaviness of one's past.

  15. Jeff Holland's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    artfully made, nuanced, detailed, fascinating. to paraphrase one of the interviewees: if you think you have "the moral high ground," you're capable of doing horrible things. i love how the film invites you to apply that idea both to the united states' actions in vietnam as well as to the weather underground's violent acts of resistance.

  16. Rhondo Alameda's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    A document of an important piece of history, still very much relevant today.

  17. Neil troost's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    if youre just a coward, and piss down your leg as you run from the draft that feels icky inside-you know youre a coward. but if you turn it into a cause, then you might fool everyone else that its not that youre just weak. hell, you might even fool yourself.

  18. Joshua Paolino's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    Listening to Brian Flanagan speak about how groups like Weatherman are able to self-justify the righteousness of their actions was compelling; as was seeing his former comrade pose along a fence with the original WTC towers visible in the background.

  19. Myles's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    Watched this for the second time (first in a Berkeley history class). People who think documentary films are supposed to convey the facts rather than partisan sympathies will not think much of this nice little document about a time that is about as foreign as it comes.

  20. crystal meff's rating of the film The Weather Underground

  21. Eric Sherwood's rating of the film The Weather Underground

  22. Ghostman's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    an informative and emotionally hard-hitting political documentary

  23. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    There is a certain age when people can be radicalized. Thank god for the narcotizing effect of tv and movies.

  24. dunjatello's rating of the film The Weather Underground

    'I still don't know what to do with this knowledge...' The group is really well contextualised in this doco and important even today. The international revolution nearly happened in '68...
