Riding the Rails

This isn't the life for me, but this documentary is interesting for the peek it gives into a hobo's life. I suspect this is a sanitized view of a hobo's life. The documentary maker kicked in money for a rental car and flew back to London in the end. There was only a hint at the seamy side of murder, drugs, and alcohol. But at the same time, it is good that the film lets you sense that these hobos are "just people" doing their thing...
