Better Than Killing Time
18 April 2004 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

Here is a movie that will help compassionate people realize just how stratified our society is. Some people have to work like hell: ruin marriages, subsist on rice and beans for months and go to prison over and over.

All for a little thing called self-esteem (and 30 cents an hour). Still, its just the way things are. Take it or leave it, friends. Maybe one day people will all have the opportunity to care this much about something so simple.

Talk about an inspirational picture.

Plus, its short!

No reason to miss it.
