Revolution Summer | Chicago Reader

Revolution Summer

Besides Jonathan Richman's evocative score, this half-baked feature has very little to recommend it. The story is set in the Bay Area and premised on the idea that revolution in America is just around the corner. Writer-director Miles Matthew Montalbano is so enamored of Antonioni's Zabriskie Point that his male and female leads bear a strong resemblance to the doomed couple from that 1970 film. While this stylistic conceit could have made for an interesting homage, Montalbano instead re-creates the narcissism and world-changing urgency that typified many youth films from the 60s and 70s but without any relevant context. 80 min.
