In 1966 Medical student and racing fan Stephen Olvey gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he is asked to volunteer at the Indianapolis 500 on their medical team. What started as fun insider view of a sport he loved quickly devolves before his eyes as he sees the level of medical support given to the drivers, whom he has befriended, is terrifyingly non-existent. After feeling helpless at the scene of what turns out to be a fatal accident. Dr. Olvey sets off on a mission to build a team to apply science to transform motorsports from the most fatal form of sport to one of the safest. Over the next 30 years they succeed and the science that they develop influences modern trauma medicine and the passenger cars we drive today. This is the story of the most fatal era in Motorsports and the Indy 500 doctors who pioneered safety and helped the drivers to cheat death.

As a father of a 13 year old girl, I really liked the fact that these films were being shown, which were already at the Toronto Film Festival. However, in my opinion, the film makers did a good job in showing the dark side of the human condition, not just on the Asian side, but on the Canadian side. This film is very much like the movies "High Fidelity" and "Blended", in that the two male protagonists are really similar, in the sense that they have very shallow relationships and live very isolated lives. Although, at times, they might seem like they have a good relationship, they are always being pushed to the breaking point by their emotions. Both films are about how women are treated in a man's world, and how a man can manipulate them in order to help him, his wife, or his girlfriend. Although, I would like to see more films like this, which are realistic, and not just a few white guys living together. However, it is clear that the makers of this film were trying to show the darker side of a good relationship.

This is a film which I was really looking forward to, as it's based on a book I've read and it's based on a real-life incident. I'm really glad that the film makers did not rely on any kind of tricks, or any sort of "political correctness" to achieve the result that they achieved, in that they managed to do it without sacrificing anything from the original story, which is the key to any good story, especially a good novel. This is a film which brings to the surface a lot of issues that are not often touched upon in the media, so I think it's a very good film to see.

First of all, I have never had the misfortune of hearing a woman on the radio talk about being a victim of sexual assault. I had heard about the horrendous effects of this on the victims but never had the opportunity to hear from a woman who had been raped. The film is very realistic and very insightful. It is very depressing, but also very inspiring. I believe that this is a very important documentary that should be seen by everyone. It's a must see!

Funny, touching and informative. I could go on and on about this film, but I will say this: it is so well made and so well put together. It is the sort of thing you'd be proud to have in your home. It is a must see. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.

This documentary is a must-see for anyone interested in the realities of mental health and addiction treatment. There are many scenes that remind us that many people in recovery are still dealing with the emotional and physical trauma of recovery. The documentary covers a variety of topics, such as: what's wrong with people's lives when they are unable to help themselves; what it is like to be a client of a treatment facility and what it is like to be in a recovery program; the difficulties of transitioning into recovery; the treatment of addiction; and more. It also tells the story of some of the worst cases of alcoholism that I have ever witnessed in my life. While I have been involved with some groups of people who have been affected by alcoholism, I have never met a person who has gone through such a destructive and terrifying experience as the person in this film. The filmmaker's objective was to bring the reality of addiction into the public domain. There are many very negative stories about addiction out there, and this film hopes to bring them to light. The fact that the film is based on true events, that it is honest and that it tells the truth, makes it that much more powerful and convincing. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who is interested in learning about addiction and recovery. The only thing I would say is that this film is not for everyone. The subject matter is serious, and the content is graphic and intense. If you are sensitive to such things, I would not recommend this film to you.

For me, it was hard to find a "The truth about racial profiling" on the net, but I found one. I found that this movie actually had something to say about the police practice of racial profiling. I was surprised to find that this movie was made in 2002, so that is very relevant for today's reality. This movie was made very well and it made me think. I highly recommend that you see this movie. For anyone that knows a little bit about racial profiling, this movie will really be a great help.

In the course of researching the history of the early days of the space race, one reads that the US is at a disadvantage because of its inferior technology. One of the many arguments that was used to back up this point was that the Russians have mastered a new, faster, more precise kind of missile. One was left to believe that the US would never catch up. What makes this documentary so interesting is that the "new" technology is really old. In fact, the missiles that are shown in the film were first tested in the 1950s. This is no great surprise, but is nevertheless worth pointing out. After all, the real innovation is actually the understanding that a new technology can be used to further the space program. While this may not be the kind of technology that the US should have been aiming for, it does demonstrate that even in the late 1960s, the US could use its space program to advance the space race. Overall, this film is a must-see for anyone interested in the early history of the space race.

I've never written a review before but this was very well done. In my opinion, the film is not about an individual, it's about the human condition. It is a deep study into the meaning of life and is extremely important for all to see. I also have the great pleasure of knowing all the characters and their struggles. It is important to me to know that, because it is something that will always be with me. I have given it an excellent rating and am extremely happy that it was made. It is an honest, strong, and powerful documentary that is so well made that it could be easily labeled as an Oscar winner.

How can one describe the breathtaking visuals of the movie, that it not only makes you feel like you are a part of the action, but is also a testament of the courage and dedication of a group of military veterans, as they fought and lost their lives. The story of the veterans of the Iraq War was told from their perspective. It was not a "side story" as many news networks were showing on their morning shows. This was a direct, moving, and unflinching look at the horrors of war. I hope that other people will see this movie and give their support for the veterans. Thank you for showing this story, in the way that it should be told.

I've never been so moved by a movie. It makes you feel as if you've seen and experienced something you've never felt before. That is what this movie is about, it's about something you can't even describe. I just don't know where to begin. You'll just have to see it for yourself. The movie shows how great the first responders are and how heroic they are. They are people who put their lives on the line for others. They have the ability to show true courage and bravery. It's a movie that will have you cheering for them. The movie is an awesome testament to the courage and bravery of the first responders. It's a movie that will make you feel like a part of the story. The movie is a great way to experience the heroes and the courage they must have to do their job. I truly hope everyone gets a chance to see it. It's a must see for everyone. The movie is well worth the price of admission. I'm glad I saw it, and I'm glad I found it.

The very first thing that comes to mind when I hear the words "Saw" is "This is going to be a disaster." The original Saw was a great horror movie with a great cast. The second one was just as good, but the third one was terrible. It was so bad that it was even worse. I was a big fan of the original Saw. I even watched the third one many times, and I still loved it. The third one was just a big disappointment. The story is basically the same as the first two. The only difference is that the director is also the writer of the first two movies. The movie starts off with a gang of young people that are getting ready to kill themselves. One of them, a girl named "Jigsaw", has a plan to get revenge on the people that are making fun of her. The plan involves using a scalpel to cut her throat, and she will die. The problem is, she doesn't have time to do it. So, the rest of the gang, including the director, try to stop her. The director is played by Jigsaw himself, and he has a lot of great lines. He is really funny and really smart. He also has a lot of great lines. The other actors are also very good. But the best actor in the movie is probably the director. He is the main reason that this movie is even worse than the first two. The movie is boring and not scary at all. It is just another horrible horror movie. I think that the only reason that people liked this movie was because of the director. He is so funny and so smart that he was able to make a movie that is worse than the first two. I think that this movie is a disaster. It is not even good enough to be a horror movie. I would not recommend this movie to anyone.

When I first heard about this film, I was amazed at the amount of people involved. We all heard about the sacrifices that they had made for the Republic. We had no idea that so many men were involved in this film. I know a lot of people are upset that they lost a friend in the line of duty, but I understand the feelings of it. I'm going to be posting a link to this film on my site. I encourage people to go see it and let everyone know what a great job the men in the military did for this country.

I agree with the other comments that this film is fantastic and all I can say is it will have you seeing it again and again. It is one of the best films I have ever seen. I was impressed by the director, but the whole crew was brilliant, from casting to music. The cast is full of really talented people, I was particularly impressed by the actress who plays Anne. Her acting is very natural and real. The film shows how very young children's lives can change drastically when they are mistreated. You feel very sorry for the child, and the director does a very good job at showing how children feel when they are mistreated. If you don't like seeing children suffer, this is not the film for you. If you want to see the most heart-wrenching story of child abuse you will love this film. All the actors and actresses do a fantastic job and I would love to see more films like this one. This is truly one of the best films I have ever seen. I was very impressed.
