With a lot of good intentions, The City of God was conceived as a documentary to explore the local population's view of the public housing projects that surrounded the city of New York. The result was a bit of a misfire. The overall feel of the film was that of a documentary with a bit of a political slant. The central character was an energetic, talented young man who's life was drastically affected by his proximity to the projects. He was quite vocal about his feelings and frequently had his own strong opinions about the projects. The interviewees in the film were mostly people who were affected by the project, and had a lot of different opinions on it. The whole idea of the film was to give the viewer a sense of what it was like living in the projects, and how it affected them personally. It was very interesting to watch people interact with the project, from a variety of backgrounds. I don't think I've ever been to a live music concert in a housing project, but I know the feeling of isolation and frustration when you have to stand in line to get into a club. While the subjects in the film were not always sympathetic, there was still a lot of truth in the way they talked about the project. The film also gives a good glimpse of what life was like for the people living there, and how people became affected by the project. It also gives a lot of insight into how people responded to the project and how the people who lived there saw it. The documentary certainly doesn't try to paint a rosy picture of the project. It simply gives a sense of what it was like, and how the people around it thought about it. I think the problem with the film is that it gives a distorted view of what the project was like. The people interviewed were not always positive. Some people interviewed were completely dismissive of the project, and it seems like they just thought it was a bad idea, and there was no point in living there. That's not to say the people interviewed didn't have good things to say about the project. They did. However, the filmmakers gave the impression that they never had any negative things to say about it. It's difficult to be critical about something that has positive effects on people. The film does have a good message, but it's not one that people are likely to take to heart. Still, it's a good documentary about the people involved with the project. 9/10

Some viewers have called this film a political "documentary", and others have complained that it is too slow and repetitive. I don't agree. This film is, at its core, a tribute to the great music and talents of the Beatles, and the all-star band that was assembled to perform for the occasion. If you're looking for an hour and a half of air-headed entertainment, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. But if you're looking for an insight into the plight of an entire generation, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I'm an American born in the 60's, and to me, the story of the Beatles represents the plight of the youth in America, from the beginning of the 60's until the early 80's. There are no examples of rock music in the 60's, and there are no examples of the Beatles performing at all, but there are examples of them in the 50's, the 40's and the 30's. I think the story of the Beatles in the 60's and 70's was much like the story of the Blues Brothers in the 40's. If you want to see a film that shows the Beatles in the 60's and 70's, watch "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".

This is a must see documentary on the progress of the documentary industry. As I've seen documentaries like 'Finding Nemo' and 'I Am Legend' but it is rare that I ever feel a deep emotional connection to one of these films. This documentary explores the evolution of the documentary industry and how it evolved over the years. It's an insightful look into how the documentary industry is slowly becoming more and more mainstream and it also looks into the current state of the industry. It is a fascinating look into how documentary makers are trying to make the transition from making a documentary to being a producer. The documentary industry has made great strides in the past few years and the current state of the industry is phenomenal. I highly recommend this film.

A fascinating documentary about the opening of the TWA Flight 800 plane crash. While the footage is never shown as a whole, it is shown in a series of mini-documentaries. The footage is riveting, and I was riveted. The great majority of the film is about the investigation into the crash. However, there is a segment in which the crew interviews passengers on board the plane and they talk about the various people who were on board the flight, and what happened to them. It was very compelling. The first segment of the film is about the investigation into the crash. I found it fascinating. I was so impressed by the investigation. It is a very difficult job to investigate a crime scene, especially one that involved a plane. I found the investigation to be thorough and very interesting. In the second segment, the passengers are interviewed by the NTSB investigator. The NTSB investigator, James Oberg, is very interesting and he is very fair. The whole documentary is fascinating, but the most compelling part is when they interview the victims. The survivors of the plane crash are interviewed in a very emotional way, and their stories are quite moving. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to know more about the events that occurred in the TWA Flight 800 crash. It is a great documentary that I would recommend.

Having recently read 'Screwed', I had the opportunity to view a screening of 'Nightmares' at the Palm Springs Film Festival. As it turned out, the film had a lot more substance than I had anticipated. It seems that many people who dislike and dismiss 'Nightmares' are missing the point. This is a great film, and it is not meant to be taken as a 'so bad it's good' comedy. If you can get past the superficial aspects of the movie, you will be in for a very good time. I believe that the film has a good message, and that it should be shown in many different ways, as it is a very effective film. The film is made up of many different characters, and the entire film is about these characters. Each character is a completely different individual, and is different in their own way. This makes the film very different from any other film. The film is not one character, and is not a straight story. There are many different story lines and sub-plots. Some of the sub-plots are simply added to the main story, but they add to the story itself. This is a very powerful film, and I can't wait to see it again.

I saw this film last night, and I found it very moving. I was also moved by it's closing. I am not sure if this film will be able to open up the minds of those that do not know the events surrounding the death of JFK. There are many words that can be used to describe this film, but I have found one that I really love, that is "heartbreaking". I think that the director did an excellent job of showing the pain that many people felt, and also the pain that many people would have felt if they knew the truth. I was very moved by the film, and I would recommend it to anyone.

In 2005, I was lucky enough to get a free ticket to see a special screening of this film at the Toronto Film Festival. The screening was attended by many, including my former film professor, now, the director of photography. This film was about the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests. The Catholic Church, of course, has a long history of being both the most and least secretive institution of the Catholic Church, and the most and least ethical institution of the Catholic Church. What is so upsetting about this film is that it is accurate in many respects. This film gives a clear picture of the Catholic Church's treatment of children. The film is also highly critical of the Catholic Church, and it gives a very accurate picture of the Catholic Church's culture of secrecy. While the film is not a film about the Catholic Church, it is certainly an important film for anyone who has ever had to deal with the Catholic Church.

This is an extremely well made documentary about the massive fraud perpetrated by the owners of two of the largest real estate companies in the United States. The title is a bit misleading, as it actually covers only the largest company, KB Home. The two companies in question are: KB Home, Inc. and the fraudulent company, KB Home Capital Corp. Both companies are known for many questionable practices, but this is only the beginning. You will see that many of the victims of these companies are young adults. Many of them had been involved in some way with the real estate industry. The only difference is that many of the young adults involved in this fraud are now millionaires. In other words, they are able to live in the "great American dream" and the same can be said for many of the other victims. Many of the victims are just trying to make their way in life, and are victims of an extremely lucrative and exploitive industry. The documentary does a very good job of showing how easy it is to be a victim of a fraud. The "winners" of the fraud are not punished, and the victims are forced to live with the consequences of their actions. The documentary is very well done, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about real estate fraud. However, be forewarned.it is a very disturbing documentary.

I came across this documentary at a local library and watched it on the fly. I was not expecting much at all and was very pleasantly surprised. This is an eye opening look at the extreme lengths people will go to for fame and fortune. It's also a great reminder of how fake the media is and how powerful the human spirit can be. I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves documentaries. There are a few points that I feel could have been made a little better but overall it was an excellent documentary. The performances were amazing and the documentary felt like a real story that could be real.

You can't help but to feel good when you see how the world can be turned upside down. When we look back on the past, we see what has been done to others, and the how it can affect us. The film explores what has been done to the US in the past, but it also brings up questions that still exist, and it gives us a little bit of hope for the future.

I just got back from a screening of this film and I am truly overwhelmed by the power of this film to inform and empower the public. This is one of the most powerful documentaries I have ever seen. It is beautifully shot, expertly edited and expertly acted. I am a Christian, and am an advocate for the "Love Wins" message, but this film is about what love looks like in America. I would love to see this film released on DVD. There is not much more I can say without giving away the story. It is amazing. I cannot think of anything I would want to change about this film. The story of "American Hustle" is so well known that I can not think of anything to add to the story. I hope the story can help people to see the reality of how corrupt the American legal system really is. I hope this film is released on DVD soon. I am so excited about it. I will be asking for my money back and will be giving it to the charity of my choice. This film is a must see for anyone who is interested in what the American legal system really looks like.

I first saw this documentary about 10 years ago, and it still remains one of the most important films I have ever seen. It is a must for everyone who values peace, and to really see what it takes to build a democracy. This film is about the lives of the people who lived in East Berlin before the Berlin Wall fell. It is a fascinating and moving documentary about a country torn apart by communism. The film starts with a conversation between the girls in East Berlin, and then we see them getting a new apartment, and then we see the hardships of the people who were forced to live in the East Berlin. They say, "Life in East Berlin was better than life in the USA. People were hungry, dirty, and homeless. We had no TV, and our clothes were always torn. I had no idea what to do with my life." And that is the real reason why this film is so important. It shows the true face of communism, and shows the plight of the people who lived in East Berlin. If you are looking for an entertaining documentary, this is the one you need to see. It shows the true horrors of communism, and how horrible it was. There is no doubt that communism was a terrible thing, but this documentary shows the horror of it. It shows how people died because of this evil, and it shows how the people of East Berlin were betrayed by the authorities. The documentary was well-done and I strongly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in history or a passion for freedom. This is an essential film, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves to watch documentaries. If you love movies, or just want to see a good documentary, then I highly recommend this film.

I just saw this at the Sundance Festival, and I can't believe that so many people, who I'm sure have not seen the film, loved it so much. I was impressed with the message of the film, and the way it was told. I'm a feminist, and I'm an activist in my own way. But I have never before been so moved by a film. I was also very impressed with the way the film was made. There was no scene that I found to be boring or confusing. I would say that the film was an artistic triumph. I will definitely be watching it again, and I will be recommending it to friends. I'm sorry that I don't have more words to express my feelings about this film, but I feel it's a very important film that should be seen by everyone.

It was a hard film to watch for me to watch the reality of a living person being put into a steel cage with no possibility of escape. I found it incredibly upsetting. I also found it fascinating to see how people who were in the same situation as Tony, but were able to leave their cages and walk away, were able to get away with what Tony was put in. I think this film is really important for people to see. This film is really a "wake-up call" to the people who were affected by Tony's cage.

This is a good documentary, it is informative, funny, and moving. I've been watching it on the DVD for months and I can't wait to see it on the big screen. I don't understand why it has been rated so poorly, it is not racist or anti-semitic or anything like that, it is just a good documentary. The only thing that disappointed me was the extreme violence, there were many shots of people getting shot in the head, but it was just the tip of the iceberg, and it doesn't really matter. It's about how much we can take, it's not about a particular culture or religion or race or religion. I can understand how it may offend some people, but if you're a Muslim or a Christian or a Jew, you will find it enlightening. It doesn't take any position on anything, but it shows that even in the midst of extreme violence, there are people who try to do the right thing. There are people who can't believe it is real, and if it were a joke, it would be a bad joke. It's not a very violent film, but it does show how hard it is to live in a culture where you don't have much control over what goes on around you, but in a few years you may have to start to control it all over again. It's a good film, and I will be recommending it to friends, but I think it should have been rated more.

It's too bad that this film was rejected at Cannes, it's a very important film about a really important subject, the US's involvement in the Middle East. If I could give this film an 8/10, I would, but I can't.

This is a must see documentary about the massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado in 1999. It is an amazing film with a very interesting story. It is a very well made film that tells the story of the incident and gives a very good insight into the people involved. I found the story interesting and the footage from the night of the shooting to be very moving. The video clips of the children playing were very moving. It was a very well made film and it was very well done. It is very emotional and the story of the incident is very well told. I highly recommend this film to anyone.

This is a really powerful film. Not only does it bring out the worst of the human condition, it also gives a rare insight into the religious culture of America. People may say that this film is offensive, but I don't think that it is. It does show how badly many people have been affected by the drug war. It is shocking to see how drug companies and politicians profit from this problem. It also shows how incredibly immoral it is to even try to bring drugs into this country without first having a decent health care system. In the end, this film shows that it is truly possible to make a film about the drug war without it being racist or offensive. The film also shows how powerless many people are when it comes to the drug war, especially when it comes to making a film about it. Many people have no hope in the future and this film shows how some people can do something about it. A film that will be remembered for years to come.

I just finished watching the film and I was speechless. This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It really made me think about the fact that I don't really know how I fit in the world. I can see why people might get offended by this film. I think it is very important to discuss this subject, as it is very sensitive and can hurt people in the family. People can be offended by the way that we treat one another. I think that this film is very important because it is not just a documentary, but a history of how we are perceived by others. This film is also an amazing piece of work because it is so beautiful and it shows us that there are many different sides of the world, and the differences we see between different cultures are not always the ones that are the most obvious. I think that it is a beautiful and informative film that should be shown in schools. This film is also an example of how people are misunderstood and many people have no idea of how we are treated. I think that people are shocked by how we treat each other, but I think that the main point of the film is that it shows how the people have to change, and that they are not always the way that they want to be. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a documentary about how the world is perceived. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who is curious about the world, or who wants to know how we are viewed by others.

I think this documentary is excellent. It tells a fascinating story of two people who were willing to change the world. It also shows how a simple idea can have such a profound effect on so many people. The story is told in an extremely simple way. We see a documentary that could be easy to miss and we see a documentary that could be hard to miss. I can't wait for the next one!

I am not familiar with the other comments, but I thought this movie was very good. I'm not a feminist, but I found the movie very insightful, and I'm sure that any person would be interested in seeing this movie. I am not the kind of person who wants to be politically correct, but I think that the movie was very informative and I was quite impressed by the accuracy of the information presented. I also liked the fact that they used real people to represent the different opinions of the participants in the movie. I think that it's important to be open to new ideas, and to make your mind up as to whether or not the ideas presented are true. I also think that if you are looking for a movie that is very true to reality, then I would not recommend this movie. If you want to see a movie that is very true to the ideas of the movie, then I would recommend this movie. However, if you want a movie that is not politically correct, then I would not recommend this movie.

This film is definitely one to watch. I had no idea what I was in for but I am so glad I took the time to see it. It is so much more than a documentary. The person who made the film does a fantastic job of telling a story that many people are not familiar with. I think it is a very good film. The production quality is very high. It was very well thought out and made the audience feel like they were really there with the families. The viewer gets a sense of the people and what they were like. They did not try to portray these people as being "bad" or "good" but they showed that they were just a bunch of people who had something in common and they were in a situation that they could not control. It is very important that people see this film because it is one of the few documentaries that I would not mind seeing again and again.
