Hollywood Elsewhere 4/5/06

Rampage is an unusual hybrid — a true-to-form urban hip-hop documentary that exudes the dispassionate mood and attitude of life in a dangerous ‘hood, but at the same time is a kind of “heart” movie.

It’s half-set in one of the deadliest environments in the United States and half-set in the realm of promise (or at least hope). What gets you is that it’s more than just a hard-edged doc about a tough situation but a haunting portrait of death and birth, and is all the more affecting due to the major “characters” all being in their teens and early 20s.

Variety: review/ 16 Feb, 2006. Richard Kuipers

“ Maverick Aussie documaker George Gittoes draws together musical ambition, family ties and several definitions of war in this vital package.”
“Buzzing with energy from all sorts of social, musical and street political directions…..
A sobering reflection on US domestic affairs threaded through the story of hip hopping brothers in an ultra dangerous Florida ‘hood.”

Screen Daily- review in Screen.com / 07 Mar,2006 Peter Brunette in Berlin

“ Rampage is a power-packed documentary…. lively, insightful and even shocking…. it’s amazingly energetic and will keep audiences glued to the screen
Festival programmers and buyers of docs ..should give this film a serious look. ”
