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>

A futile approach.
4 April 2002 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

After watching 15 minutes of this movie it becomes readily apparent that it is not a documentary, and its subjects not being real people but just actors. But in this fact, something can be learned by actors just how unreal they are in delivering lines. What is supposed to be poigant moments in a worker losing his job, instead becomes a futile attempt at sincerity. They are clearly actors. No emotion. No caring. Even the 2 camera shots, cutting and swoosh pans are easily seen as 'direction' and not 'moments captured'

But it beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
