Reviews about 1971
Great reminder of many things I had forgotten. Our country has always been this bad....
I saw this movie first on a flight-I quickly became riveted. The story is one that I did not know-that a small band of protesters were successful in taking down the local FBI office and drawing attention to the incredible wrongs that the FBI were doing to everyday American citizens. In this day and age, and in this political climate, YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE.
In spite of the fact that I knew the "ending" of the story, 1971 does a wonderful job of telling a thrilling story. It also provides context, filling in a great amount of information about the climate of the time and how our nation got to this. The "burglars" were brave people and serve as an inspiration to us all.
1971 (2014 film) Is an outstanding documentary entitled ‘1971’. Sincerely wish everyone could watch this. Puts a lot in perspective and provides original sourced facts and personal drama demonstrating what a few average American citizens did back in 1971 to push back against the growing abuse and tyranny of the U.S. Federal Government. After watching this documentary, it is clear to see how we have been nudged since that time into a Panopticon as a result of 9/11. These young people –some with families– realized America had a serious problem and risked everything to fight for America and for her freedom. -David BrownSynopsis from Wikipedia The film focuses ...
I’ve worked or lived in Philadelphia since 1966 and I’m honestly shocked that I was not aware of the event that took place on March 8, 1971 in Media, PA (just 12 miles from Philly). A group of eight ordinary citizen planned a break-in to the FBI office in Media and stole all the files which they then turned over to the newspapers – exposing the corruption in the FBI. Yes, this was BEFORE Woodward and Bernstein.The “burglars” (who called themselves the “Citizens’ Commission to Investigate The FBI”) were never caught and the statute of limitations expired. So in 2014 they decided their story needed to be told and ...
Know your history. The first exposed government surveillance of US citizens.....amazing how nothing has really changed. More amazing was the ease that these brave young people were able to do what they did. So different now. They are hero's just as Edward Snowden is. So much has changed, and yet so little. Wow - well worth the watch.
1971 is an enjoyable documentary revealing a period of U.S. history that is never taught in classrooms. The secrecy of institutions like the FBI looms as a shadow behind almost every single social movement and grassroot movement in the U.S. history. It's important to remind ourselves through storytelling that this is part of the story -- that with every push towards new visions, there is always a strong pull back towards conservatism. This pull towards conservatism that is rooted in the strong urge to reinforce old values and traditions can manifest in ugly power usurpation.I appreciated the story that 1971 tells, and appreciated the way it told the story. ...
