Além de trazer aquela que é provavelmente a pior cena dirigida por Capra em sua carreira (o monólogo de Regis Toomey na prefeitura), o filme é um água com açúcar repleto de diálogos patriotas/cristãos patéticos, artificiais e piegas.
| Original Score: 1/5

[VIDEO ESSAY] Wikipedia lists "Meet John Doe" as an "American comedy film." How wrong they are.

Capra's films work because he believed with his whole heart in his cornball agendas.

This vintage Capra film is the sort of sentimental thing that only he could get away with.

It's pure Capra, run through with the tension between idealism and corruption...

Journalistic ethics are only a small aspect of the film, but the implications are long-ranging.

Frank Capra's most ambitious and disturbing film, Meet John Doe is possibly more relevant today than when it first appeared in 1941.

Meet John Doe (1941) is a wonderful, but dark Frank Capra populist melodramatic tale about the common man. The sentimental film is often grouped

Capra's political parable is problematic parables, from his contradictory approach to the "little people" to the right-wing elements to the compromised ending, in which Cooper is stopped from committing suicide.
