Samuel Beckett visits the New York City welfare system
30 August 2003 | by (Los Angles) – See all my reviews

Now THIS is the best documentary ever made. in these times where ranking has become an obsession, I implore all of you out there to demand to see this film. Like Beckett this movie is funny,dark,clever and insightful. The "Happy Couple" goes down in documentary history as one of the greatest catches!
