Depressing Depression
Ejaz | 05/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All I can say is "thank god, I didn't have to live through this time in history."

People had no jobs and not future if we are to assume the documentary footage here is accurate. It's very depressing, to coin a phrase.

Clip after clip shows people trying to get work or being in breadlines. It's sad, but I couldn't stop watching because I had no idea it was this rough.

It's really interesting to see what things were like then and how much better we have it now.
