  1. Andrew Miller's rating of the film ...And the Pursuit of Happiness

    I loved Derek Walcott in this.

  2. Matthew Martens's rating of the film ...And the Pursuit of Happiness

    An exquisite, unflinching, but ultimately hopeful documentary on the state of the American dream -- which is, of course, not really "American" at all, but a more or less (where more=better) universal longing for versions of dignity and independence that can co-exist peaceably with an always evolving sense of shared community. Malle is as wry and humane a guide as one could hope for. Even his dangling boom mics charm.

  3. NO LONGER HUMAN's rating of the film ...And the Pursuit of Happiness

    This title is misleading. It should be ...And The Pursuit of Modernism

  4. Joe Hackman's rating of the film ...And the Pursuit of Happiness

    30 years later, this documentary is at once a time capsule and a reminder that we haven't come far enough. Malle's vignettes move quickly and the characters he found are fascinating. I was impressed by how many loaded images there were in this great piece of documentary filmmaking! 9/10

  5. StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film ...And the Pursuit of Happiness

    Malle interviews dozens of the more recent wave of immigrants to the US, very well done and enjoyable. A good companion film to El Norte.

  6. Creme Tangerine's rating of the film ...And the Pursuit of Happiness

    having watched calcutta, place de la republique and god's country before this film...i have come to admire louis malle's slices of life...and observations of subjects relevant till today.

  7. Eleanor Abernathy's rating of the film ...And the Pursuit of Happiness

    im amazed that for a film thats 25 years old is still extremely relevant.
