Emmy(R)-winning filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi ('Journeys With George') explores scandalized former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey's new life as a spiritual advisor to female prison inmates and a soon-to-be ordained Episcopalian priest.
Political crybaby Pelosi is a nut that didn't fall too far from the tree. This piece has ONLY liberal, bleeding heart trivets reporting on the issue of the gentrification of SFO. It's a slow lament of the death of the culture that was San Francisco, which really has gone away already.
This film gets one star for me because it's dishonest. It doesn't even try to present both sides. The only interviews are from ULTRA lefties like former mayor Willie Brown, Gov Jerry Brown, and super lefty Gavin Newsom. Ugh. Just those names should tell you the kind of film you're going to see.
The fact that they ignore is, that just as big corporations bussed talent from SFO down to Silicon Valley, so too are the poorer people bussed IN to San Francisco to work. Government meddling like rent control and minimum wage is artificially screwing with the economy and therefore the people.
It's hard to feel sorry for the sad sacks in this film who squandered their money trying to live in SFO when they had no income. There are plenty of great places in the USA in which to live that don't have fog, traffic, outrageous taxes, and stifling homeless populations like San Francisco. I just came from there and I won't be back. It's gone. No longer there. So get over it Pelosi and move to someplace that you'll love; like Russia or North Korea. You can have all the leftist rent control there you want. Just one thing missing: Opportunity.
