    In this heady documentary, TV footage of left-wing social critic Paul Goodman being interviewed by conservative host William F.

    Completed in 1954 and demolished in 1972, the 33-building Pruitt-Igoe housing project in St. Louis has been used to support diverse social theories—that government funding is bad; that modernist architecture fails; that poor blacks are irresponsible—all of which are debunked in this affecting documentary by Chad Freidrichs. more...
