This movie proves how fantastic film can be!
27 February 2001 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I'm no writer, but all I can say is that this film rekindled my spirit for film. It just goes to show you that there all still films being made out there that have a solid message, are well done, and are unique. The Private Public is the most eloquently written film I've seen in my 20 years. The world needs to see The Private Public, to bring hope back to the industry.
