The Weathermen

This documentary charts the course of a small group of upper middle class kids

they go from waving signs
to bombing buildings
to going into hiding and bombing buildings
to coming out of hiding and getting desk jobs
to having coffee with obama

outcome: interesting. it offers insight to the pros and cons of instigating violent revolution, and just how easy it is to spin…. anything. the critical reflection these sixty-somethings offer about where they were right and where they were wrong is sobering. anyone interested in radical movements and social upheavals should definitely have a look.
