We gave it a C

If you’re looking for a balanced depiction of the rave scene, skip the zippy but one-sided documentary Better Living Through Circuitry, which broadcasts its bias in the title. While it’s refreshing to hear the leaders (Moby is among the interviewees) and disciples of the counterculture have their say, the film’s lack of objectivity is disturbing, particularly when the subject of drugs rears its ugly head. Circuitry wants us to believe that the kids are all right, but it proves a difficult pill to swallow. C
