A violent, street-fighting, extreme-stutterer becomes a great, powerful communicator. REVOLOUTION seems like just a great story, but it is the first movie in history to be structured around a shamanic ritual, which when experienced by certain audiences, creates an identification with the near death awakening of the lead character and results in radical and instantaneous transformation in the viewer.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A film with movement-sparking rather than moviemaking on its mind, Revoloution is a hopelessly muddled example of inspirational indie cinema."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Not even a grumpy cameo by Burt Young and some lovely shots of the Brooklyn Bridge can save a movie as punch-drunk as its benighted protagonist."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Spellbinding! An enlightening and profoundly moving experience!"
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Non-seekers ... may resent the obvious proselytizing voice-over, courtesy of a 'revoLOUtionized' Lou, and scripted psycho-babble."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"You say you want a revoloution? Careful what you wish for."
‑ Drew Tillman, Village Voice
"The story is hopelessly contrived and the characters -- especially blacks and Italians -- laughingly stereotyped."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"A bargain-basement independent which so abysmally examines the cathartic act of confronting personal demons that it inadvertently argues in favor of suppression and denial."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"Be aware that RevoLOUtion is a remarkably well-made 75-minute inspiromercial."
‑ Bill Gallo, L.A. Weekly
"Less a movie than an 80-minute promo for a self-help program for the seriously desperate."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"As a director, Carr has no sense of pacing (76 minutes seems like an eternity) and doesn't know when to tell Bret Carr the actor that his performance isn't working in a given scene. Carr's crying sequences look about as fake as a purple toupee."
‑ Dan Lybarger,
