Storyline

Since the end of World War II, one of kind of urban residential development has dominate how cities in North America have grown, the suburbs. In these artificial neighborhoods, there is a sense of careless sprawl in an car dominated culture that ineffectually tries to create the more organically grown older communities. Interspersed with the comments of various experts about the nature of suburbia, we follow the lives of various inhabitants of this pervasive urban sprawl and hear their thoughts. However at the end, there is a twist that plays on the falseness of the world in they live. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Pure Crap, no additives, no preservatives, all natural
16 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yet another disjunctive 'documentary' about the 'horrible evils' of suburbia, even tho millions of people want to live there.

One 'expert' says, James Howard Kunstler: "Eighty percent of everything ever built in North America has been built in the last 50 years. And most of it is brutal, ugly, depressing, unhealthy, and spiritually degrading."

Um...he is talking about cities.

Let see cities...crowding, rat like feelings, noise, pollution, crime, high cost of condos, poor schools, constant construction noise why would you ever leave?

Oh, the burbs, nice yard, garage, garden, wholesome activities, clean environment, no noise, birds, squirrels, deer and a closer touch with nature, more bedrooms for kids, better schools, and no high rise Soviet style urban housing.

If you think kids taking gymnastics is funny, try having them on the street shooting each other and lingering on corners selling drugs. How is that for your cityscape.

In a funny ironic twist - this clone of other 'documentaries' is a carbon copy to the same worn out theory - suburbs bad, city good. Give me a break. And the same 'experts' with their pet theories on human behavior. Ever ride the subway in NYC? No one and I mean no one looks or talks to each other - they know better. They might get shot. So much for their bogus 'community theories' that are fantasy.
