Movie Reviews

Beautiful, engaging journey across America

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Normally, I don't write reviews on amazon, but given that only one other person has voiced an opinion on this wonderful documentary, I had to say something. This has always been my personal favorite of the Epstein/Friedman documentaries and I was so happy when it finally came out on DVD. This is a small, personal, somtimes quirky trip across America, where the filmmakers stop and take the pulse of that great expanse of America between LA and NY. They talk to everyday people on the streets of small towns, closeted gays in the military, local eccentrics and try to find out what these people think about America, people who live on the coasts, gay people, you name it. It's not intended to be all encompassing, but shows us snapshots of rural and small town America through the quizzical, but always fascinated, eyes of two urban gay filmmakers stepping outside their comfort zones. It's a sheer delight from beginning to end and although it was made over a decade ago, the issues discussed haven't changed. We're at war with Iraq once again. There's a Bush in the White House. And most Americas still think Calfornians, Jews, and gay people are suspect. So...if reviews influence you on what movies to watch or buy (and they really shouldn't because most reveiwers don't have a clue about what YOU will like) then you have a dliemma here. One review thinks this is worthless and one thinks it's a refreshing, insightful, entertaining documentary that will appeal to ANYONE who loves docs. But I'm right, of course :)"
