Living in Houston and driving to parties in NO almost every weekend I expected a lot more from this DVD. I know its hard to capture everyones experience or view but overall too many blurry shots, not enough clear, focus shots, and the editing didn't help either. The bonus scenes of the 'Rave Act' made the DVD for me. I would probably agree with the other reviewer when he says you might find it boring if you weren't there or know anyone in it; i can see that point. But it is a keeper for me because it did bring back some great memories of Zoolu, 50ft Raver Zombies, Yars Revenge, Summer Fever....and many, many more. I recommend this DVD to the people who had the privilege to experience the parties during that time.

I think this film would appeal to anyone who loves and understands music and the scenes that surround it. Make sure you turn it up, the soundtrack rocks and really makes you feel the energy of the party. The bonus sections are a helpful addition that expain what has happened to the rave scene in the US. I loved it and so did my grandma! This is by far the most honest and interesting rave film out there.

Rise is your typical documentary that explains what the rave scene was like in New Orleans. One thing it definetly helps you understand is why, the ravers, promoters and the DJs decided to do this for their lifestyle. The one part viewers must see, is in the bonus section, where another documentary about the R.A.V.E. act and the aftermath of Donnie's war against the government is told. If you've come across this DVD cause you're into electronic music, watch this so you can see what lies behind your ability to party on a saturday night, LEGALLY!

Bieng a part of the NOLA scene, it is sweet to have a small part of that to take with you. But for others it's a look into a scene at it's mightiest time..COTB/FB/DP..we are still here. And we will RISE again.

I got this dvd three days ago and have watched it five times already. Yes, it's possible that this movie will appeal more to members of the new orleans rave scene, but others will enjoy it as well. It starts out by introducing a few members of the scene, including disco donnie, a few well-known ravers and a weird rave performer. After a little background and party set up info, it goes right into the good stuff, the state palace party, which I think was freakfest. The video was edited quite well and recreated the feeling of a party at the palace, and then at the peak of the party the graphics start getting crazy and kind of made me feel like I was at the peak of a roll. I will keep this dvd forever to bring back memories of all the good times I have had in that venue. If you've ever been to a party in New Orleans, or want some insight into the culture here, this is a must-buy. BUY IT

This movie is NOT about Donnie Disco and in fact by the end you still don't know what role he played--promoter or DJ, very confusing! The video quality was the worst being extremely blurry & pixelated, the music was at best OK, which is a shame considering this was supposed to be about music & the rave experience. The film tried to cover too many people, and in doing so did not give an in depth look into this lifestyle, nor were the interviews of any value to the viewer: standing people up against a wall & watching them try to think of something to say while out of their mind's high, is not interesting viewing. The Mardi Gras footage was unnecessary & took a significant amount of time & attention away from the film, that could have been better spent focusing on the people, the dancing, the rave experience or on Donnie's work & why he was considered a rave outlaw, all promised but not delivered, in the previews & descriptions. Once we knew it was in NO, we didn't need constant reminders in the way of parade float continuous inserts. I'd much rather have watched the DJs work, have the rave music explained, watched more of the dancers and the floor shows put on for the party (but which were never once shown). As for the drug culture, if they had focused on one person's experience from arriving straight, to getting high, to raving, to morning after, that would have been more valuable than any thing actually included in this documentary. If one has nothing better to do, or finds this film on cable/TV, then perhaps it is worth viewing, otherwise save your money and time to view other films of this lifestyle with better productions & coverage.
