Even if [Schwartzberg's] choices feel somewhat clichéd, there's no doubting the spirit of his subjects, who seem genuinely proud to share their thoughts and feelings for a few, too brief moments.

For an episodic film, America's Heart and Soul is fast-paced and often downright exciting.
July 12, 2004
An inspirational and emotionally effective feel-good film.
July 9, 2004
In this film even homeless people have something positive to say about the country.
July 7, 2004
Less evocative and honest in all its 88 minutes than, say, just one of the throwaway establishing shots of Angela Arenivar's dusty Texas-panhandle hometown in last year's Spellbound, a true American movie with a lot more heart and soul.

July 2, 2004
Even though, at times, Schwartzberg's documentary exalts the American way of life with the mythical reverence of a Leni Riefenstahl, the experience is undeniably stirring.
