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)

Great Satire on Sprawl
5 March 2007 | by bsegafredoSee all my reviews

I saw this movie this week-end at the True/False film festival in Columbia, MO. I'm a young architect and I spent a lot of time studying sprawl and the effects of sprawl while I was in school. This film was a satirical look at sprawl and the effect that is has not only on the appearance of our neighborhoods, but also of our family life. This film has commentaries from professionals that are highly regarded in the field. James Howard Kuntsler gives his opinions on sprawl. If you are familiar with his work, "Home from Nowhere" and "Geography from know where", this adds another level on his opinion of sprawl. It was absolutely hilarious. I would strongly recommend that if you get a chance to see this movie, you must take it!
