touches subjects as disparate as family values, generation gaps, american values, growing up, technology and society
25 April 2004 | by (davis, california) – See all my reviews

shorter than i would have liked, but i suppose that's a good sign. it's ostensibly about a group of paperboys in stillwater minnesota, but it reaches far beyond that. it touches subjects as disparate as family values, generation gaps, american values, growing up, technology and society and the future in general. the film doesn't draw any conclusions or make any judgments. this, coupled with the abrupt ending, make for a film that will probably stay in my thoughts for a while. the film style and editing didn't offer anything of real note, but wasn't overly amateurish either. the dvd has a couple other short films that are interesting and add value to the package. glad i got it. B.
