Quotes

Luke Weil: Did you ever have an encounter that rubs you the wrong way? It's whoever pisses you off. And I'm up at boarding school. And this kid's from like some shit town in Connecticut. You know, I don't know. I can just say, fuck you, I'm from New York. I can buy your family, piss off. And this is petty, and this is weak. And this is very underhanded, but it's so easy, you know.

Jamie Johnson may have found his purpose, good work.
23 November 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I avoided watching this film for some time confident it would be a self-indulgent piece of fluff that would grate on my working-class sensibilities. I was wrong. In my humble opinion, Jamie Johnson did a fine job of humanizing himself and his subjects in a way that ,for me, promoted compassion and understanding for persons "different" than myself. Any filmmaker that has the ability and the resources to promote understanding of persons different than ourselves has a talent that hopefully will not be wasted.
