    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    The result is undoubtedly impassioned. But it's also so blinkered and self-congratulatory that it feels like an undergraduate thesis project. Even if you relate to the cause, you may find yourself frustrated by the effort. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    Feel-good documentary gathers great interviews but isn't sure what they add up to. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    The film is one-sided and at times unfocused, but it makes a lot of sense politically. show more

    On a political level, the film is far from a Godardian dialectic, so the view of history that emerges is, to say the least, blinkered. show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    More of a massive back-patting for bleeding hearts than a comprehensive-or even semi-comprehensive-survey of DIY protest art, the film unintentionally makes the perfect valentine for the OWS version of radicalism: It's righteous, full of rage and cripplingly unfocused. show more

    Kudos to writer-director Antonino D'Ambrosio for taking such an eclectic and disparate number of aims, thoughts, subjects and mediums and creating the smart and inspiring - and uniquely whole -documentary that is Let Fury Have the Hour. show more

    Village Voice

    The film joyfully surveys the evolution of a politically informed artistic movement, set to a soundtrack that includes MC5, Rage Against the Machine, DJ Spooky, and others. show more

    Ronnie Scheib Variety

    A curiously warm-and-fuzzy hindsight interpretation of artistic aggression, delivered by the artists themselves. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    Infinitely less than the sum of its parts, Antonino D'Ambrosio's Let Fury Have the Hour crams 50 thoughtful artists into a disappointingly muddled film. show more
