It's the tenth anniversary of a Socialist being elected President of the United States...and very little has changed for women. Granted that great strides have been made for equality and social justice, but the economy has suffered and much of the great changes have been mostly talk. Women are still the last ones hired and the first ones fired. Two groups of activist women (or should that be "womyn"?) decide to take their rage to the streets, voicing their opinions on two pirate radio stations; Radio Regazza (led by a white lesbian radical) and Phoenix Radio (led by a soft-spoken black woman). Granted the technical qualities of this film betray very small budget, but it is made with spirit, drive and passion. I've seen Hollywood films with one hundred times the budget that weren't this good, nor that packed a message as powerful. (Also, don't be confused by the director's name. From what I know, she has no relation to the axe murder.)

Born In Flames waaay exceeded any expectations I had! If I had the know-how to make a film today it would look like this film. Its gritty, documentary-style footage is fresh, interesting and engaging. The acting is so effortless and real that my friend kept asking "is this part documentary?". A Women's Army, activism, bicycle patrols, lesbians, radio, amazing music...I can't wait to watch this again!

If you call yourself a feminist and haven't seen this movie you should be ashamed of yourself. It is smart, fun, exciting, and powerful. The film also highlights most of the threads of feminist thought going on during the 60's-70's and contrasts them nicely through the main character's discussions. Feminist/socialist/futurology what could be better!

Social science fiction Aug. 24 2001

I'm ecstatic! June 21 2006
By PolarisDiB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I never, ever believed anyone would release this movie on DVD. Having seen it in a film class and hoping I'd maybe find a run-down VHS copy to have if I could ever get around to it, I was very, very surprised to go into work today and see it sitting so happily in the new arrivals section. I bought it immediately, before I even clocked on.

I can't comment on the quality of the disc quite yet, as I haven't gotten a chance to watch it yet, but the wonderful thing about this movie is that a bad transfer, although still a nuisance, can kind of add to its griminess. This movie is very documentary-esque in the sense that it looks like its shot on film taped together from single frames, early neo-realism style. Except what sets this film apart from the type of films that look like they were shot on somebody's parents' videocamera is that it's really well written, and the grime fits the tone.

It is ten years after the "Second American Revolution," and the leader of the Women's Army mysteriously dies... setting off women across the nation to take down The System. Honestly, this movie makes one think that they must have missed something while sleeping through classes.... "Second American Revolution? When did that happen?" It's plausible enough.

A few images might seem dated, but I think they only increase the symbolic effect. Stuff like the World Trade Center... very powerful symbol today. And the way the film analyzes the media and its use is very important to. On many fronts, in many ways, and in many senses this is a brilliant movie, one that just gets better the longer one takes to sit back and think, "Huh, crazy, that makes a lot of sense." Above all, it's visionary, pointing out the problems with feminism itself as well as promoting it.

I applaud the effort, but question the end product. Oct. 3 2014
By J. Arena - Published on Amazon.com
Born in flames was an interesting film that brought up feminist issues still relevant today. However, the quality of the production was somewhat jarring, to the point that it distracted me from the content. There were snippets of seemingly random content interjected, perhaps merely to pad the length of the film. I couldn't give those snippets any more meaning than that. I realize this was an independent film, but the acting certainly left much to be desired. I had high hopes for Born in Flames, but I was ultimately left disappointed and confused.
A Celebration of Misandry and Violence Nov. 20 2014
By Diogenes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The only value of this film is the premise that electing a socialist government won't create significant social change and may simply dampen any revolutionary fervor.

Beyond that, it was a celebration of radical feminist misandry and violence - the social qualities that the "revolutionary" lesbian militants purport to want to transcend while themselves descending into the worst of human nature.
