The film's success in giving the voiceless a platform balances out Phillips's more precocious and pretentious flourishes.
Great Speeches From a Dying World is an unsettling documentary portrait gallery of nine homeless people living on the streets of Seattle.
In a sense, Phillips's mission is a variation on the tradition of semi-orchestrated socially conscious documentary that stretches back through Lionel Rogosin's On the Bowery and beyond.
A moving portrait of homelessness that's honest, respectful, heartbreaking yet warmhearted, and brimming with humanity.
Doesn't solve the issue of homelessness, but at least it captivates your heart by humanizing homeless people and by giving them a voice.
Grounds the life-and-death struggles of the downtrodden in the quotidian: where to sleep, how to get clean, who to love.
This gritty, unflinching documentary by Linas Phillips traces the misfortunes of 10 of Seattle's hard-core homeless over a period of a year.
