I've seen this film being criticized for being inexpensive. Also for being simple. Or for the exclusion of everything but talking heads. None of these things are sins, in my mind. I loved this film. I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it, and in this case, that's a compliment. The most enjoyable aspect of this film is that it takes on a question that many of us have probably asked ourselves in our lifetime but is the kind of question that we never would expect a documentary to tackle. The question is - for people who often get labeled as "negative" - is simple. "Is it us or is it them?" Are we actually negative or is it the Pollyanna world around us that sees us that way? I know that there were a few semi-famous people in this film but I, for one, was glad that people weren't identified, so I wouldn't have to spend the whole film reading "Joe Schmoe" and asking myself "Who's that? Is he famous?" It's not important if they're famous or not. They're simply a bunch of folks, men and women, who share similar problems. They're my people and I loved spending ninety odd minutes with them.
