3.0 out of 5 stars It could of been more... June 6, 2004
By yherba
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's the real deal May 20, 2004
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars for the naysayers May 25, 2004
By Ronnie
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars it was an honor May 16, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent May 20, 2004
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

2.0 out of 5 stars It's o.k. May 12, 2007
Not the best documentary that I've seen, but it has it's parts. The most interesting part, in my opinion, of this film is that it's the beginning of the Rave Act.
