Great Slice of America
16 November 2004 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

I remember this as the greatest documentary I've ever seen.

I saw this in film school in a documentary class. It concerns an ordinary man and his family attempting to run a pizza place through hard times in middle America.

The professor mentioned beforehand that, every year, this was the class' favorite; more than any of the more famous and well-lauded films.

And yet almost nobody has heard of it. Family Business played on PBS in the late 70's as part of a Middletown series and it is quite hard to find. The only place I've ever found that has it, wants to rent it for $100 and sell it for $245.

Nevertheless, if you ever get the chance to see it, jump on it. This film will stick with for life.
