People are overwhelmingly trustworthy and generous (by tashi-herzmark)
Craigslist Joe demonstrates to all those who doubt the basic goodness of human beings that each and every one of us possesses beauty and a fundamental dignity. The films characters and their interactions pass as at least exceptionally genuine and not a moment of camp or scripting was evident and this with the ordinariness of the content gives it it's power. The subject matter, alienation and the vanishing of real community in the U.S. and the industrialized world at large , born by distrust and distraction, is eminently relevant and the film works very well by instead of bemoaning the <more>
fact showing the conditions for healing. I hope that you can watch this movie and see what is missing in your life, and perhaps rate this free of cynicism. Cheers and jolly good luck; the Elites may have all the wealth but we've certainly got the numbers.
I'll have to write a better review after I stop bawling like a complete man-baby from a certain part. Breathtakingly eye opening. An absolute must watch. America really is a great place, and it's because it's full of people from everywhere who wanted a better life, to become an American.
The Goodness of Human Beings (by kely-campos1789)
The goodness of human beings is explored in this documentary that pleasantly surprised me. I must say that I found it friendly from the moment the problem statement. During the trip, Joe gives us a heart medicine by saying he always found a kind soul along the way.I thought it was great to achieve a documentary like this and to establish a way to connect with people. Joe manages to catch the viewer to reflect even the problems that stand in the way, but ultimately encourages us as a society of little media exist or is so small that ends up being nonexistent. Definitely the world is full of <more>
good people, bad few.Craigslist Joe and demonstrate this through this documentary
No fuss, no effects. Just people being GREAT people. (by jennmillerla)
Watching this left me wanting to give Joe a big hug! Ha, aside from how amazing random strangers were I love that their are people like you - Joe. That have the right kind of crazy and honest passion for the weird and wonderful people we share this world with. Feel inspired and truly blessed with the wonderful people I do have in my life. But seeing strangers putting themselves out there to help another fellow human being left me feeling happy, excited, emotional and restored faith in our chaotic world we've created.... Ineeded that.Made my day! Thank you x
Put Me Back on Track (by lorriebeauchamp)
We need more of this type of average-Joe content, although this Joe is far from average. As I watched this tender and inspiring documentary, I realized how cowardly we have all become by ingesting so many fear-based stories from the media and Hollywood alike. We don't trust each other anymore, and our default button is set on "be suspicious", which is really too bad. Joseph Garner is a modern hero. He shows admirable tolerance, an ability to suspend judgement, and the compassion of someone whose ego hasn't replaced his heart. I laughed, I cried, I felt so inspired by the end <more>
of this movie that I wanted to go out in the street and start hugging people. I have grown too cynical, and Joseph Garner reminded me that cynicism is a dangerous stance, putting our own humanity at risk. We can't turn on each other, or isolate ourselves, without suffering huge repercussions on a global basis. As we move into the next year, may we all find it in our hearts to be more open to strangers, to reach out with help when we can, and certainly to embrace community whenever and wherever we find it.
Makes You Feel Optimistic About Humanity (by politically_incorrect204)
While I acknowledge the cynical points by some about this film I don't think it should discredit it and certainly shouldn't discredit it's intention. Yes I suppose the camera could have influenced people's decisions and their treatment of Joe. But we can't prove that and I honestly feel like most of these people came across as rather genuine. Would they have been AS altruistic without the camera? Perhaps, perhaps not. But I still think they would've tried to help. Regardless I still think the film had some great moments and told some great stories about people and <more>
about humanity. I refuse to look at this film through such a cynical filter that all I can do is pick it apart. As someone who believes in the power of Craigslist and people's general humanity and compassion for each other I found the film very enjoyable and even uplifting at times, but perhaps that's just my optimism.
