"Sounds Like A Revolution" is a powerful, insightful documentary about the state of protest music today, as well as a critique of and primer on the consolidation of the music industry and radio. With countless interviews and compelling profiles of four artists - Anti-Flag, Michael Franti, Paris, and Fat Mike (NOFX) - this film aptly demonstrates the ability of music to energize and mobilize people to action. I enjoyed all of the profiles, particularly those of Justin Sane (Anti-Flag) and Paris. Both men are insightful, thoughtful, intelligent and just downright interesting to listen to. I was already quite familiar with Anti-Flag, having been a fan for years, but not with Paris, whose music I was inspired to buy after seeing this film. Michael Franti is intelligent and thoughtful, and Fat Mike a textbook case of how someone who never paid much attention to politics becomes politicized.

If you are interested in protest music - not only its history but the seeming lack of new and established artists to carry on this proud tradition - "Sounds Like A Revolution" is a must see.
