Editorial Reviews

Arguably the most provocative band of the last 20 years, Rage Against The Machine have since their explosive debut, been the group most associated with the American protest movement. Picking up the flame from a linear musical tradition going back to the War Of Independence, with the best known protagonists coming up during the 1950s and 60s civil rights movement via artists such as Pete Segar and the young Bob Dylan, the anger remained as brutal as ever during the final decade of the 20th Century in Rage and contemporaries like Public Enemy. This film dissects the work and career of RATM and looks at their place in this always fascinating lineage of artists and performers who have spoken out on behalf of, and drawn attention to, the world s marginalised, downtrodden and oppressed.

Rage Against the Machine was/is a special, unique group. One that was able to go through society's filter, and make money and fame selling non-commercial, intelligent, and provocative music. They certainly left a mark in the industry and in our souls and their rise and fall has successfully been documented in the exciting and powerful "Revolution in the Head: Rage Against the Machine and the Art of Protest."

The film begins with scenes from the 1999 World Trade Organization Meeting, in Seattle, Washington. About 40,000 anti-globalization protestors made their presence felt at this event, and the music of Rage Against the Machine (RAM), in part, fueled their actions. It was clear at that time that this band, which combined hip-hop and hard rock, had made an impact on society.

The movie tells the story of how RAM came together. The original members are Zack De La Rocha (singer), Tom Morello (guitar), Tim Commerford (bass), and Brad Wilk (drums), of which De La Rocha and Morello are the most known. An assortment of journalists, producers, writers, and industry personnel are interviewed, and provide much information about the band. Some of these interviewees are Gustavo Arellano, Joe Levy, Colin Devenish, TV Reed, Michael Goldstone, Ann Powers, and Jerry Silverman. We learn a little bit about the band member's backgrounds, which explain, in some degree, the nature of their music, and how the band made their first record, and established itself as a radical protest group. Each of the three albums that they recorded - Rage Agaisnt the Machine (1993), Evil Empire (1996) and The Battle of Los Angeles (1999) - is discussed in detail, giving additional information about which ones were the hits.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Simon on February 23, 2010
Format: DVD
Firstly this DVD is NOT AUTHORISED by the band so about 80% of this 1hr 45min documentary is filled with annoying imitation RATM music rather than their own work and there are absolutely NO direct interviews/talks with any of the band members.

The documentary itself has some interesting parts including stories from their debut album producer/engineer Garth Richardson. Ultimately however this DVD is just as much a history of protest music as it is a RATM documentary. The majority of the RATM footage is made up of clips most die-hard fans would have already seen on youtube (which are far from 'rare' as the DVD claims). And listening to some of the contributors talk is just down right annoying and they frequently end up getting their facts wrong (one guy claims the title for the 'Battle of Los Angeles' album released in November 1999 was inspired after the band played the Democratic National convention - held in August 2000). Don't be fooled by the 'extras' either. I finished watching the feature length thinking 'cool, let put on the extras' only to find short 1 page biogs on all of the contributors as well as a link to other unofficial RATM releases.

But its not all bad. RATM fans old and new will probably enjoy watching this and may even learn a thing or 2 about the band that they didn't already know. Saying that though you'd probably have just as much fun spending a night watching the plethora of actual interviews/footage of Rage on youtube. My only hope is that maybe one day the band will get involved in some sort of RATM documentary and put an end to these mediocre un-authorised releases.

This is an excellent film detailing the history and music of RATM and placing them in the context of what has come before. It was interesting to see the band's political message in the context of 60s protest singers and even further back than that. There is also some great analysis of their music courtesy of interviews with, amongst others, producers and sound engineers who have worked with the band.
Recommended for all fans of the band and people who appreciate an in-depth, well researched documentary of one of the most important rock groups of recent years.
