Rockin' the Wall

( This documentary makes an impassioned argument for the role of rock music in bringing down the Berlin Wall, and despite some questionable techniques (dramatic recreations and split screen that would give Brian DePalma a headache) it's pretty effective. That the main musicians the filmmakers wrangled up got for commentary (and to help score the video) were from Vanilla Fudge should in no way indicate this was a V-Fudge-level revolution, and to be honest, I'm much happier giving props and credit to the Fudge than to Reagan!
