Storyline

Interviews in the Michael Moore/"Roger and Me" tradition examine life in small-town America, class conflicts and the collapse of an upstate New York community, Dadetown, when the town's once-prosperous factory, reduced to the manufacture of paper clips and staples, finally closes. Facing massive unemployment, the blue-collar Dadetown residents next find yuppies moving into town to staff the local division of a big computer outfit. Written by Bhob Stewart <bhob2@earthlink.net>

Brilliant
14 June 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This mock-umentry works on so many levels. How the director got such realistic performances from his myriad actors might probably be due to the reality that the film faces, i.e. the demise of the middle-class in America. Be afraid, be very afraid. But yuck it up at the same time. The film encourages us to laugh at the past, and move on. Also watch "Wonderland", a true documentry, that covers similar grounds.
