Better Living Through Circuitry

Movie Review by Nigel A. Messenger

Starring: Jason Bentley, Frankie Bones, Carl Cox
Director: Jon Reiss

If you’re into raves and clubbing, if you’re interested in the techno music scene or if you’re just curious to know what your grown up kids are doing when they go out at night, BETTER LIVING THROUGH CIRCUITRY will give you the best insight into the rave scene that you can get outside of organising your own party and inviting 20,000 people.

This is a look at how the rave scene works, inside out, from the eyes of the people who spend all night dancing to the minds of the organisers, the DJs and the performers. Mainstream society has built up a negative attitude to the word rave, with all sorts of visions, some justified many not, but until now, no one has really listened and been able to fairly convey on film the reasons why the rave scene exists, and what it’s followers and organisers get out of it.

For some people, raves are a way of life and after watching this documentary you will at least have a fair opportunity to make up your own minds about raves and you may just find yourself exploring what can be an irresistible beat.
