Interesting that this film was just recommended to me, especially in light of what happened in Toronto a few weeks back.
I've always thought that this sort of protesting was silly; attracting stupid people and sometimes making otherwise rational people do stupid things. I'd say the young men in this movie fall into that category - stupid people. I had a difficult time feeling sorry for them as they fell in and out of trouble. Most likely because they seemed to always be looking for it. I guess if I saw this film 15 years ago I may have been able to better relate to their rage, but as it is, they just come off as a bunch of annoying punk kids.
Liked the movie...hated everyone in it.
