unique documentary, especially for its time

salesman is a documentary about travelling bible salesmen, and salesmen in general. the film doesn't have much structure, its just footage of in house sales calls, meetings, and discussions between salesmen. a lot of it is interesting, and a good glimpse into the 60's. boy times have changed a lot. the main character paul the badger is a frustrated salesman who can't seem to get things going for him like in the old days. we see the high pressure situations, the desperate people, and everything in-between. there isn't much positive to take away from this film, other than i'm glad i can buy a bible for 5 bucks at the bookstore now, instead of dealing with these people.
