Inspirational for people who hate inspirational
20 July 2008 | by bostonisaacSee all my reviews

Actually it is inspirational for people that like inspirational too. Saw this film tonight and was really moved by the Man named Pearl. Pearl is a true original and embodies the American Spirit in the very best way. I hate inspirational movies for the most part but this film pulled me in, made me laugh and was honest. This is one of those rare films that can make you see the light in the dark world and be happy that there is a good person, inspired and doing good things. The movie just made me happy to be on the planet which is rare at times. The photography and music are really great. Nothing manipulative here. I highly recommend you check it out when it is in your town.
