    Hm. I might have to disagree. The more I think about it, the more I like it; All things considered, it was probably the Maysles' finest achievement. 8 years 10 months ago

    A very good documentary. Door to door sales is one of the hardest sales jobs to do. The movie was well done showing an impartial perspective. This is no Tin Man movie. Slow paced, but gave a true viewpoint of the business. 3 years 7 months ago
