Great documentary
11 December 2004 | by BrandenkongSee all my reviews

I enjoyed watching this documentary about the homeless. I would like to see the homeless in the USA because this only showed homeless in one area. I am from an area where homeless are a dime a dozen and I would never even talk to them. This documentary makes me feel like I am having a conversation with the homeless. This wasn't as long and boring as I thought because I am not a fan of documentaries but this one was enjoyable to watch. It made me see homeless in a better light. I will keep this movie as part of my collection of great movies. I wished my film teacher would show this documentary over their old ones because this is more up to date and we can relate to it.
