This is an effective and educational film that offers insight into a vanished time and place. I loved and respected Weather at the time, and still do. It was great to hear them reflect on those times, and the commentary by Bernadine and Bill is alone worth the price of the disc. Well-made film isn't perfect [what is with that ersatz orgy scene?] but is does afford us a glimpse at a time in our recent history that has been warped and ignored, for the most part.
As a footnote, permit me to add that it is proven, verifiable fact that Weather never killed anyone. Nobody died as a result of a WU action, with the sad exception of Terry, Diana, and Teddy at the townhouse explosion. To reiterate, there were never any casualities. The reviewer who states that a policeman died in a bombing needs a reality check quite badly. Effective film about people who never lacked the courage of their convictions. It is still true today: to stand by and do nothing in the face of gross injustice & mass slaughter is itself an act of violence. We STILL need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. With love to Bernadine, Bill, and the rest. Venceremos.
