Chavez: Inside the Coup
A review of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
by Matt Mason

Okay, so an Irish documentary crew was working on a film about Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez when, on April 11, 2002, a coup erupted. The documentary crew switched gears and got some of the most amazing footage I've ever seen.

Director: Kim Bartley, Donnacha O\'Briain

Stars: Hugo Chavez, Pedro Carmona, Jesse Helms, Colin Powell, George Tenet

Rating: NR

Release: 03-07-2003

Time: 74 minutes

Buy Movie at Amazon.com Chavez's election appears to be a surprise as he took power away from the established powers. He instituted shocking reforms in the oil industry which had been keeping the powers-that-be deep in money in this fairly poor country.

What ensues is a story about the power of television (both good and bad) and the power of democracy. Seriously, Chavez's portrayal will remind you of how democracy was portrayed to us idealistically in grade school, not how we see it these days in the controversies of our own system.

It's a story with all the action, drama, and thrills of a blockbuster movie yet it really happened.
