Writer, director Antonino D Ambrosio unites fifty powerful, of-the-moment voices - from street artist Shepard Fairey to rapper Chuck D to filmmaker John Sayles to comic Lewis Black who share personal and powerful tales of how they transformed anger and angst into provocative art and ideas.

Let Fury Have the Hour is an inspirational film that takes a look at how the policies of deregulation in the 80s inspired a new generation of artists, musicians, activists, skateboarders and poets as they formed their voice of "creative response" to what they saw as the dismantling of the social safety nets that held American society in place for a generation and a half. Embracing artists who cross borders with their music and poetry, the idea that we are all of one world, i.e. "world citizenship" is also a message that this film imparts (a topic that could deserve an entire film unto itself).

The interviews of LFHTH with those artists (as well as with historians and economists, giving an intellectual rigor to the proceedings) are very thought-provoking, especially given today's economic times in this country and around the world. The editing is fast-paced and intricate, keeping you on your toes at all times! Rounded out by a great soundtrack of music from punk to hip hop to soul and folk, you will be highly entertained and edified by this unique film. But mainly you will leave the film inspired to create something, anything, bigger than yourself as the director shows that creative response lives within all of us!

This movie is depressing. Yes, I am a punk and have been since the mid 1980s. And it is good that we are looking back and realizing how cool we were to do the things we did and say the things we said. But there isn't a whole lot of political or cultural context in this film. Just interviews with middle-aged punk MEN talking about how cool they've always been.

I mean seriously, men love themselves and they want to talk about it all the time. This is great don't get me wrong. But Punk Rock is about grrrls too. And lots of other stuff. I would like to have watched a documentary that was less about punk rock men congratulating themselves and more about the world which created a need for Punk Rock and DIY. Darby Crash knew what was going on. So did the editors of Flip Side. Again, not a lot of context here. Disappointing.
