Movie Review by Gina the Ninja BAMF
September 12th, 2007

I really did steal this movie.

But that's besides the point. This film is INCREDIBLE. I f*cking loved it, all the way through.

It shows the full story of a revolutionary man, through thick and thin. His family, his dreams and goals, his lifestyle, the changes and sacrifices he has to make to survive, from beginning to end, as well as the story of his supportive wife, Anita, helping him carry the world so that he isn't alone, even when it all seems hopeless.

From being the unstoppable to reaching the brink of insanity and paranoia, we watch a man go from love and peace to living in fear. How does this happen? How does a person, with so many hopes and dreams, become nothing more a miserable old man? Is that the cost of a revolution? What do you lose to make a change?

This is called equivalent exchange. To gain something of value, you must lose something of equal value. Abbie Hoffman lost the beauty he had in life so that he could try to change his country... For a moment.

But you have to remember one thing. When you hit rock bottom, the only way to go is up.

Both inspirational and profound, "Steal This Movie" has got to be one of the best movies I have watched in a long time. It was compelling and motivational, as well as heart-rendering and consuming.

While watching this movie, I felt butterflies in my stomach, tears swelling up in my eyes, and my emotions going wild. Yes, a film actually moved me. That doesn't happen often.

The beautiful story of a true revolutionary of the twentieth century. You gotta love it.
