Night Owl

The Weather Underground

Viewed: 26 July 2009
Directed by: Sam Green, Bill Siegel
Listed in: Movies, Netflix

The documentary presents excellent, compelling interviews with former members of the Weather underground, some of it's allies, detractors and prosecutors. It very effectively traces the beginnings of the Weatherman and their break from/take over of the Students for a Democratic Society, and the subsequent choice to pursue violence and terrorism and it's consequences. The film only fails in the soundtrack and the ungainly, graphic montages depicting larger historic events of the time.
