The contemporary music sequences are a distraction from the heart of the movie: truly astounding archival footage of speeches, marches, and demonstrations.
Through vivid archival material and voice-overs, the filmmakers create moving vignettes that, taken together, form a fascinating primer on nonviolence as a political force and discipline.
Soundtrack may very well be the finest, broad history on film of the Southern Freedom Movement years as measured from the Montgomery bus boycott (beginning in 1955) to the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1968).
An elegantly crafted new documentary.
Tthe film is primarily interested in the music that accompanied this turmoil, which is a bit like covering the American Revolution with the focus on the wigs Washington and Jefferson wore.
Essentially a condensed, lightly airbrushed, skillfully assembled history of the civil rights movement, with musical interludes.
Whether you lived through the civil rights movement or not, the Danny Glover-produced, marvelously musical "Soundtrack for a Revolution" will leave you deeply moved and humming.
The songs are rousing, but it takes more than a soundtrack to make a revolution.
Puts a fresh spin on an important chapter in American history.
On a practical level, the music is a helpful entry point into some of the most shameful chapters in American history.
An incredibly moving experience to watch the struggles everyone went through, all framed by the protest songs of the time and what they represented to those in the trenches.
It's the clips of early television broadcast reportage -- along with the emotional memories of those who participated, that still move one to tears, awe and pride.
