Format:DVD
"Groove" is the amazing directorial debut of documentary filmmaker Greg Harrison, who masterfully captures the life of several young adults in the underground raver community in San Francisco. Visually stunning, highly addictive rave music, and an excellent script and cast, the film "nearly jumps off the screen," as a writer for "Rolling Stone" magazine described it.
The film's cast which includes Rachel True ("CB4"; "Half-Baked"; "The Craft"), Denny Kirkwood ("Never Been Kissed") and Steve Van Wormer ("Idle Hands") are all fantastic, as well as the many actors who were casted via casting calls in the San Francisco area. The appearance of many popular rave/techno deejays such as DJ Polywog and DJ Digweed also add realism and authencity to this great film. However, the two scene stealers in this film have to be Lola Glaudini who plays "Leyla" and Hamish Linklater who plays "David" a workaholic writer who can't seem to enjoy a good time. Their encounter, and instant romance was the film's main subplot, and it made the film a feel-good movie at the conclusion. Ms. Glaudini who has appeared on television's "NYPD Blue" is one of today's talented young actresses, and after seeing her in this film, I anticipate a promising career in the near future.
Just like the film's tagline, "Are you feeling it?", I definitely felt the force of this independent feature film. When I read that the Catholic Archdiocese of New York City classified this film as morally offensive, I ran off to see even more so, however I found nothing offensive about it. As a Catholic, I probably will be casted to hell, however if so, I have no regrets in seeing this film. If you liked the film, I highly recommend its' soundtrack as well. Overall, groove is an experience you would not want to miss. Truly it is one of the best films of 2000.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vibrant yet cheesy December 6, 2000
By Chris
Format:DVD
The movie from a storyline standpoint is intruiging since there aren't many movies of this sort to choose from in the "electronic dance" (rave) scene. The movie is pretty short, although that isn't the real problem with it.
The actual dialogue between the characters seemed a bit forced, such as the exchange between the promoter and one of his buddies who questions why he goes through the hassle of putting parties together anyway. Other aspects such as acting, and I hate to pick on the DJs but snaz and digweed seemed to me like they were trying to act as DJs, not actually being them, slowed the film down a bit.
The energy brought into Leyla's character was a nice boost to the movie, and the scene where Dave is outside beginning to feel the effects did make me feel a bit queasy :)
The film did a good job on trying to develop characters throughout the party instead of developing them beforehand and watching how they react to the different situations that occur. A nice twist since there have been many times where me and my friends will go and be completely open with people we've never met before. So, the film kind of caught a special element of the scene, which was a nice plus.
It seemed most aspects were covered in the movie....there were the candy ravers, the kid who just went so he could take as many drugs as possible, the guy who goes solely for the purpose of hooking up, the first timer, the sober veteran who watches after the first timer, the happy-yet-really unstable raver girl, the ravers who go just to hear their favorite DJ, and of course, the DJs themselves. Some of these characters were developed and represented nicely, but as noted before some of the lines they were fed seem to be more pointed towards people who have no idea what goes on in the scene...

5.0 out of 5 stars Infinate Smiles... February 21, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
While watching the movie, it brought back wonderful memories of a TRULY special time in my life. I wish it could always be, but of course the scene is constantly changing...I think it's VERY unusual to find a TRUE promoter(as in Groove) for an -underground- these days, which is the key to bring the culture back home. I read a review that said they didn't know what a wherehouse party looked like, or didn't capture the vibe or soul....well, I am a San Francisco native and that is how the party are(were) here....Watching the kids go to the 'EndUp' Sunday afternoon where all the tweekers hang after parties was killer! I really liked the fact they did NOT show any kids over-dosing or a mass of kids looking totally spun...now that's something that would be taken from Dateline or please Hollywood...Yeah, it sometimes happens, but for the true kids, that's NOT what it's about. There's music that takes your mind, body & soul to another level,meaningful friendships, new found love, and discovering that life is soo precious and beautiful, being closed minded could be hazardous to your health...Definately a collectors item!

5.0 out of 5 stars It took me back... July 30, 2002
Format:DVD
I was a hard core raver from 1991-1997 in Baltimore and this movie left me dying to go out to a good party. Oh how I miss those days. If you want a small glimpse into the life of a raver you should watch this movie; moreover, the movie reflects how some ravers actually go to parties for the music and not the drugs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great and accurate depiction of underground raves September 13, 2004
By Paul
Format:DVD
This movie is a great and pretty accurate depiction of underground raves. If you're not a techno-music fan or don't even care about raves, you'll probably find this movie pointless and superficial and you should skip it.

But if you're the least open-minded, interested about what underground raves are about, you will like it. I know I did.

This is a great portrayal of what the party scene is like in San Francisco, and every other large metropolitan area, for that matter. Very entertaining!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must get for those who were there!
I've lived it, and this film brings the polished memories. This movie is for kids in the 90's that "Dazed and Confused" was for the 60's and 70's kids.
