With Great Speeches from a Dying World, documentarist Linas Phillips evokes the despair of the Seattle homeless with an unusual approach. He tells ten individual stories of disenfranchised persons, and then underscores the plight of each by having him or her recite an iconic speech from history that reflects on the difficulty of his or her experiences.
