Los Angeles Times

By Gary Goldstein
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.

Variety

By Ronnie Scheib
A curiously warm-and-fuzzy hindsight interpretation of artistic aggression, delivered by the artists themselves.

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.

The Hollywood Reporter

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

Slant Magazine

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.

New York Post

By V.A. Musetto
The film is one-sided and at times unfocused, but it makes a lot of sense politically.

The New York Times

By Jeannette Catsoulis
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.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
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.

Time Out New York

By David Fear
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.
