I am a new fan of War & Peace. I love to read history books and I find the history of the time fascinating. When I saw this movie, I thought it was great. It showed the events of the Napoleonic Wars, especially the famous Battle of Waterloo. However, the movie does not show all of the battles, and it does not show how the war ended. It shows just how bad the French were. I would suggest watching the movie to learn more about the Napoleonic Wars. It is a very important time in history, and I think people should learn more about it. If you are interested in the Napoleonic Wars, I would suggest that you watch this movie.

You should see this documentary. A few years ago, I worked for a media company and I helped produce the film "Nashville." We got a documentary crew to Nashville to show the public what really happened there. The result was a huge scandal and the first presidential debate was cut short. This film is much more comprehensive and much more informative. I have never seen a documentary that covers so many aspects of the rock and roll scene as this film. It is not a "documentary" in the traditional sense. Rather, it is a "look inside" of a very private and secretive world. I highly recommend this film.

I have seen this film about 50 times and I'm still amazed by it. From the first scene to the end you can't take your eyes off the screen. It's absolutely wonderful. You'll be hooked from start to finish. Great cast and crew, the music is fantastic, the acting is great, the direction is awesome. I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves good art and wants to know more about how great people create great art. It's an amazing film. It's not for everyone, but if you can get past the initial viewing and you have a good heart and you're a sucker for good movies, this is one of the best films ever.

I just recently saw "Traffic", and I have to say that I found it to be a very well-made documentary. I believe that it is the most detailed and well-thought-out presentation of the events that occurred in Mexico in the 1990's. It does an excellent job of showing the aftermath of the events, and the power of the drug cartels. There are also some great shots of the Mexican countryside, and great footage of the Mexican capital. It is also extremely well-acted. Sean Penn is the one who gives the most convincing performance of all of the actors. I do not think that anyone could do the job that he did. The documentary does a very good job of showing the struggle of the people who are trying to escape the violence, but also showing the suffering that they go through to survive. There is a lot of violence in the film, but I do not believe that it was meant to be a glorification of the drug cartel. The people in the film were fighting for their lives, and they did not want the violence to continue. I believe that this film is a very important film for showing the facts of the events, and the human costs. It is not meant to be a film about the drug cartel, but rather to show the human cost of the drug cartel. I hope that everyone who sees this film will take the time to watch it, and understand what the human costs of drugs are.

When I first heard about this documentary, I was thrilled to hear about it. This documentary has been on my must-see list for a long time, so I was not disappointed when I finally watched it. The style of the film is not too cliche, but it is very well done. This documentary is about the history of the Rothschild family and the banking, banking and insurance industry, as well as the history of the United States and it's political and social system. The documentary also focuses on the American Civil War as a catalyst for the Rothschilds and the rest of the banking, banking and insurance industry to begin building their empire. One of the most interesting aspects of this documentary is that it goes into a lot of detail about how the Rothschilds, and other industrialists in the US, set up their businesses, from their first to their last. The Rothschilds were actually very secretive about their business and they did not advertise their company to the public, so the general public never knew what they were up to. This movie takes you through the history of the Rothschilds and the history of the United States in a very interesting and entertaining way. The characters in this documentary are very well drawn, and the majority of the film is very interesting and interesting to watch. It's very interesting to see the activities of the Rothschilds, such as their financial, banking, and insurance activities, and the economic impact of the US in the early 20th century. This documentary is a great documentary, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the Rothschilds, the history of the US and its people, or just a documentary that you would like to watch.

One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I absolutely love this film and every minute of it.

This is a must-see documentary. The acting is superb. The subjects speak for themselves. It's a must-see for anyone interested in peace and justice in our world.

I read the book first and the movie before seeing it. I loved the book but the movie was so different from the book. The movie took a lot of scenes out of the book. I think that the film did an excellent job of showing the book without making the movie more serious. The book did a better job than the movie showing how Mark Twain took things in his book to a whole new level. The movie was also great. The scene with the train was especially fantastic. I would recommend the book to anyone. There are so many things that the movie missed out on. I will definitely read the book and watch the movie again to see what is missing. Great movie.

This is a great documentary that highlights the people of color who have been silenced by the status quo of the country and by the criminal justice system. The use of racism is nothing new, but in this documentary, the story of a young black man who has been denied his right to vote because of his skin color is new. The film has a great opening sequence with interviews with the parents of this young man, and the parents, the judge, and the police officers who are part of the system that has prevented him from voting, but who have also been the subjects of the documentary. The filmmakers capture the struggle of the young man, and the families of the people who have supported him, to get him to the polls. The filmmakers are very clear that they are not trying to tell us how to feel, but they are telling us a story. We have an excellent documentary here, and I would recommend it to anyone. We need to be educated and held accountable for our actions. The people of color who are affected by our actions, need to be heard.

I saw the film at the Cannes Film Festival in late June. I expected the film to be a B-movie or even worse, a standard one, because the trailers were all at the top of the sales charts. But I was surprised. The film was something else: a compelling story about a struggle for the soul of a region of the world that has not been talked about, and certainly not in films. I could not imagine a more compelling story than this one, and a more moving film. The film is made with great sensitivity, by filmmakers from every continent, each speaking on their own behalf. The film is a must-see.

I was shocked to learn of the influence that Adolf Hitler had on the U.S. government in the 1930's. To my surprise, the film was released at a time when many Americans were ignorant of the events that occurred. The reality is that Hitler was not so much a "madman" as he was a "mental case." He had a deep-seated hatred for Jews, and a strong desire to destroy the Jewish people. When Hitler entered the Federal Government in January 1933, the government attempted to use the Reichsbank to finance the war. In order to finance the war, Hitler began to push through changes in the law regarding Jewish property. Hitler also started to purchase large amounts of gold, in order to pay off the debt the government had incurred by allowing the Reichsbank to be used to finance the war. In order to complete the "buyout" of the Jews, Hitler also began to send troops into the country to wipe out all of the Jews who had not emigrated to the United States. When the American people learned of these events, they were shocked. There were many people in the country who were never aware of what was going on, and there were even many people who were sympathetic to Hitler. The news media did not tell the American people of what was going on, and this may have contributed to the rapid downfall of the Nazi Party. I have always been interested in Hitler and the way in which he came to power. It is now apparent that he was not a madman. In my opinion, he was a "mad" man who was caught in the grip of his "craziness." Hitler was a bad man. He was a sadistic man who was incredibly talented in the use of his power. He had a talent for controlling the masses, but he was also a human being. He was a great leader, and I think he deserves credit for being able to use his power to make the world a better place. I have always been interested in the way in which he used his power, and how he came to be the "madman" that he was. There was no "good" and "bad" in Hitler. He was a sadistic man who was caught in the grip of his own madness.

This is the first documentary I have ever watched in my life. The film just goes to show how important it is to stand up for what you believe in and try to create a better world. It was just amazing to see the "cure" that was made by these three people, and to see the negative effects that the evil of capitalism had on the world. The film is definitely a must see for all of us. It will make you realize that we are all connected and that there are people out there who are fighting for the same thing we are trying to achieve.

Most people know the story of the World Trade Center attack on 9/11. So does David Gerrold, an ABC News correspondent and director of "Dead Wrong: A Documentary" and an instructor in News Management at the University of Texas at Austin. "We were just doing our jobs," he said. "I was being a journalist, and my bosses were making me go out and do my job. The story is all about one piece of the puzzle. That piece was the people who took a chance on that day." Gerrold has a way of seeing the problems of this day through the eyes of an old professional. "This movie is about the people who were so eager to get back to their lives," he said. "But how they did it was so important." He started with his boss, a retired New York police captain, and his colleagues in the newsroom. The crew, he says, were doing their jobs. They knew what they were doing. "When I showed it to them," Gerrold said, "they said, 'This is too personal. I don't want to know what happened.' But as I was getting them to talk, I realized that if I kept it as personal as possible, I was going to have to tell them about their personal stories. And I was going to have to ask them to talk about what happened." Gerrold says the reaction was more than he expected. "The news stories I have seen in the past," he said, "they have a very conventional, boring and repetitious nature. They make you feel like you're watching a documentary." Gerrold knows what he's doing. "I don't want people to think it's not a big deal," he said. "It's an event of monumental proportions." The focus of the film is the people of the TV newsroom. "The newsroom is a place where you go to get work done," he said. "It's a place where you go to work. And you are, at the end of the day, your boss. And they are, at the end of the day, their bosses." Gerrold said it was almost like watching a film that was part documentary, part fiction. "It's a story of the people who were there, and the people who were there, but it's not the story of the newsroom. It's a story of the people who went on that day." The people who worked on 9/11 and the people who knew them helped tell the story, he said. "It was a tragedy," Gerrold said. "It was a tragedy for all of us." We know that what happened on 9/11

This film made me cry and I loved every minute of it. It shows a man who has a lot of problems. He has a hard time adjusting to the fast paced life in the U.S.A. When he first gets to Canada he is shocked to find a world without racism and discrimination. He quickly realizes that he has to get used to the new environment. He learns a lot about himself and the many problems that go with this new life. The part of his wife that went back to the U.S.A. is very touching and heartbreaking. I'm not a racist and I'm still amazed by how much I learn from this movie. It's nice to see that the people who are creating this film did some research and research about race relations in the U.S.A. and other countries.

For the most part, the narrative of this movie is good, and it's compelling and full of excellent images and captivating scenes. However, the only part that stands out as really noteworthy is the film's style. For example, the sequence in which Mike Tyson and his partner break into a Los Angeles apartment and steal money from it and then they take Mike Tyson to the police station and break into his home and proceed to beat him into unconsciousness. This scene is a beautiful snapshot of the brutal brutality of the years following the rise of the AIDS epidemic and the black riots that broke out across the country in the mid 80s. It is truly remarkable and something I would have been happy to see as part of the movie had it been in the film. It's a remarkable, brilliant moment. But the movie really doesn't work without the style. When you look at the movie, you see it as a character study, and as a character study it works very well. I think the problem is that the style doesn't fit with the narrative. As a film, the style works. When you watch a movie with style, you are not just watching a movie, but watching something really powerful and moving. However, when you watch a movie with narrative, it doesn't work. It's a bit jarring to watch something that has style, but then to watch something that has narrative and is about the relationship between the two. I don't know what was going on in the mind of the director and the editor, but the style just doesn't work. If you look at the film, the style is everywhere, but the narrative is all over the place. I could almost say that the style and the narrative were mutually exclusive. It seemed as if the style was added to the narrative, but there was no sense of where it fit in. The narrative seemed to be the whole point of the film, and it was hard to understand why it was needed, but the style just didn't work for me. In the end, I would have liked to have seen a bit more of the style in the narrative. I would have liked to have seen it, but it just didn't work.

After visiting the temple of Keche with my wife, we both were inspired by the temple that we visited in April. The temple in itself was awe-inspiring. However, the two other stories that were featured on the DVD were equally outstanding. One was about the dedication of the temple in May of 2006. Another was about the dedication of the temple in August of 2007. These two stories are truly inspirational. It is also important to note that temple attendance has increased by more than 20 percent since the temple dedication in June of 2006. I would also like to point out that the temple on Sunday was on time. If we would have waited until it was time to leave, it may have been on time but we would have missed a great opportunity for temple worship. We also were inspired to make our own temple ordinance before our temple meeting. It was very inspirational and a real testament to the LDS Church. All of the stories were beautifully told and the quality of the photography was impressive. I recommend the DVD to anyone interested in the LDS Church and temple worship. This is one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. You will not regret watching it.

Some of the more recent books I've read are The Discovery of America: The New Race War, and The Boys in the Boat. I've always been interested in the subject of the political wars of the late 1800s, and this film is an interesting addition to the collection. It's very well-filmed, with great cinematography, and a great soundtrack. The most interesting aspect of the film is the interviews of the historians who were involved with the events of the time. They discuss some of the most important facts and figures in the period, and it's interesting to see the background of each of them. The biggest factor in the rise of the Union, for example, was the first battle of Antietam. I'm interested in the historiography of the period, and I'd recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about it.

This film is unique in its approach to the issue of pornography. It is an honest documentary on the subject of porn and, more specifically, its effect on the lives of the men who watch it. No more, no less. The film is a must-see for all who want to know the truth about the subject of pornography. It will be especially appealing to those who have experienced the effects of porn in their personal lives.

This film should be required viewing in all universities. From the women's liberation to the impact of the holocaust, we need to know more about these topics. Why isn't this film taught in our universities? Perhaps we should all take a few classes to learn more about these topics. As a film, it is highly entertaining and enlightening. My suggestion is to watch it and make your own conclusion. All that we know of history has been falsified and distorted by those in power. We need to know more about these topics to understand how our governments have changed in the past, and to avoid repeating the mistakes that have been made.

I found this documentary inspiring, thought-provoking, and amazing. In particular, the way the filmmakers described the questions and actions they faced during the filming of their documentary is inspiring. The filmmakers took on the task of filming three successful, independent filmmakers, writing, shooting, editing, and post-production, for just $300. All three of them were brilliant, and each made a documentary that was a masterpiece. All of them were genuinely excited and proud of their work, and it was a pleasure to see them all give it their all. The filmmaking style and way the story is told is also unique. It is the same approach that one would expect from an indie film, and in that way it was more realistic and engaging. I think that the filmmakers were lucky in that they had the time and freedom to tell the story in a way that was much more personal and authentic, and it really paid off. I think that it was a great opportunity to tell a story that would really move the viewer, and the films that they made really did. I am looking forward to watching the three other documentaries, and would be willing to watch a documentary just about any time!

Some of the comments here are really silly and unnecessary. I think you're just looking for the latest trendy fad. Yes, we know that "the 60's" is an era. We all know that America is a modern society, a time when the "old" country of the former colonial powers was a melting pot. We know that the struggle for civil rights was a really important part of that period. And we all know that the cold war was a real "thing". The question is: do you feel like you know the "American way"? Do you feel like you know what is right and wrong? If the answer is no, then you need to look deeper into your own life. If the answer is yes, then it means that you don't understand the roots of the American way. If the answer is yes, then the question of the year 2009 is going to be a very interesting one. It is my sincere hope that the next president of the United States will have the courage to be honest with the American people and to give them the answers they deserve. For me, the answers are a bit too simple. But even so, I think it is a real shame that a few people like President Bush and some of the other politicians in this country still don't seem to be able to come to grips with their own actions and responsibilities. If you want to see how the answer to this question will be, you need to watch this documentary.

These days it seems that movies get remade in this day and age that the original director doesn't get any recognition. Yes the effects are amazing, yes the acting is terrific, and yes, yes it is visually stunning. But to me, the movie is about two of the biggest public problems that the world has ever seen, and the two main characters, a widower, and a young girl, were such a perfect representation of that problem. These people weren't supermen, but they were real people. I wish there were more movies like this. Even the music that was in the movie, in some ways, was a great representation of this problem. I don't think this movie is perfect, but I think that there are a lot of great movies out there that are. I will also say that, in general, I think that the people that are on the film making committees do a good job, but they don't have the power to make the decisions that the filmmakers do. I think that the people who are making these decisions should be able to make their own decision. I hope that more people will make more movies like this.

It was amazing! I am the last person to speak in English but my friend had the best. I am very sad that the same-old story of this man could be told in a way to remember him, not only in his voice but also in the way he was as a human being, the way he took care of his family, the way he made love. Even though he was a photographer and a painter, he made a good life for his family. I hope to see him again in his old age and to be able to tell him a story about this man. A life, a life for a lifetime. The film was the best I have seen. A great work of the best of the best.

I just finished watching this documentary, and it's the best thing I've ever seen about our beloved homeland. It gives the audience a wonderful, honest and accurate portrayal of life in the Western Hemisphere, and gives an incredible glimpse of the culture and language that is Mexico. I'm amazed at the lack of information on this topic that the United States gives, and how much misinformation and misconceptions are propagated by the media and politicians. I highly recommend this documentary to everyone, especially to the non-Americans who don't know about this amazing country, and how it is a thriving nation, with a vibrant culture and very talented people. This film is about the history of Mexico and what was written about Mexico in the early 1900's. It's really a wonderful documentary, and I highly recommend it to anyone.

This documentary is a must-see for everyone who loves this great music. The documentary includes all of the recordings of Frank Zappa's last three albums. The director did an amazing job of staying true to the Zappa story without trying to tell us the whole story. I have been a Zappa fan since I was a kid and I love the music that he made, but the documentary was so touching that I really cried. The interviews are so powerful that you can't help but think about Zappa and his music. The interviews are so insightful that it makes you want to read up on Frank Zappa. The documentary is well worth the time to watch.

I am not a filmmaker, nor a "filmmaker" per se, but I have been fascinated by films since I was very young. I saw this film in the early 80s and became obsessed with the impact it had on me. Now, 30+ years later, I am still intrigued by this film, and wonder how much of it I have missed. While I think that there are still parts that are accurate (as in the physical changes that people undergo as they age), I think the director missed many important points in the film. I do not understand why the director chose to make the key points of the film into an abstract montage of images. It was more interesting to see the "tourist" in the beginning of the film, and later in the film the subject of the film, as opposed to the "local" crowd. Also, the film did not convey the significance of a young woman's life until later in the film, which is very important in the film, since it is such a key part of the film. However, I think that this film is still quite interesting. It will be interesting to see how much of the film has aged over the years, but I am looking forward to seeing it again.

I have been a fan of art for a long time. I have an appreciation for the creation of art and the stories that we tell, and this documentary is a great tool for me. The film talks about the life of John Cage, who I first met when I went to see "Dreams" when I was in the 7th grade. I thought that this was a great documentary for me. I saw "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" the day before, and that was also a very good documentary. I will have to see both of those films before deciding which of the others is better, but I do not regret seeing "Avant-garde" because I think that it is a great documentary. I also recommend that everyone watch "Fashion in Color" because it is a great documentary that shows the changing styles of clothes that we see in the 20th century. I think that this film is a great tool for people to see the world through different perspectives. It is a great film to see people in different situations and see how they react to what they see and what they hear. I think that is why I have been so passionate about making art for a long time. I feel that I can't say anything bad about the film, but I do have to say that it is not one of my favorite documentaries. I don't like the director's style and I don't like the filming style. I think that I have seen some better documentaries than this one.

The documentary focuses on the historical events in the 50s and 60s. It explores how religion was introduced into the US, how the majority of Americans were raised with a strong Christian background and the impact of this on their lives. It also discusses how the political climate of the time influenced the people's attitudes towards religion. It explores how Americans reacted to the introduction of religion into their lives and what they were taught. This is a fascinating documentary that shows how religion and politics were intertwined and how people reacted to this. It also shows how people thought that the church was doing good and how they were very upset about it. It explores how some people were looking for scapegoats in society to blame for the problems they had and how they felt threatened by the church. It explores how the introduction of religion was a reaction to the rising anti-communist feeling in the country. It also explores how religion was a reaction to the war in Vietnam. Overall, this is a great documentary and I would recommend it to anyone.

W.C. Fields would have been proud to see the current director of this film being treated as an outcast. We owe much to this film. It is an incredibly beautiful film, and the voice of the people who are invisible in the film is what gives the film its power. If you have not seen this film, please do not hesitate. This film deserves to be seen. Please do not wait until it is available on DVD. The DVD should be out in the next year. I hope that more people will see this film. It deserves to be seen by more people.

I just got back from seeing this film and it was extremely well done. I had never heard of it before, and this film is a documentary about the life of Darryl Forte. This film has all the characteristics of a documentary. The actors were outstanding, the subjects were phenomenal, and the filming was outstanding. This film had me crying and laughing, laughing and crying, and laughing and crying. This is a very powerful film and I will definitely be seeing it again. I highly recommend this film to anyone.

It's been a long time since a documentary like this has come out. This is a true story of a special family from a small town in Alabama who is absolutely amazing. It's amazing that their experiences are so real. This family has more than one job, and they've all had to deal with hard times in their lives. The kids have never experienced a bad day at school, and their parents have always provided them with a place to go. I have to give credit to the documentary crew for putting together this amazing documentary. The family was just incredible. They've always been the best part of my family. This is a true story about a family who never had a bad day at school, and they all grew up together. I have no idea why this story has been so hidden. I'm glad it's out there.

This is the first documentary I have ever seen that shows the struggles that come with having to deal with a woman being a victim of domestic violence. This documentary is very well-done and, while I understand that the people involved in the film aren't always advocates, I think that the film was really well-done. I think the main problem with the film is that it doesn't talk about the different kinds of domestic violence and the different kinds of perpetrators that might be involved. I think that the film would have been better off talking about how the police are trained to look for clues in the same way that the mental health professionals are trained. I think that it would have been much better off talking about why this happens and what the state's of knowledge is. This film also doesn't talk about how this happens. I think that that's really important to be aware of. I think that the fact that it's not talking about it does make it a better film. I think that this film could have been much better if they had spent more time on it and spent more time on the different kinds of violence and the different kinds of men involved in it. I think that the police would be better off looking into this more. I think that this documentary would have been a lot better if they had talked more about how they can help and what they can do to help. I think that this film is very well-made and it shows how people can be beaten by a man who they're supposed to love and who was supposed to have left them. I think that this is a very important film that should be seen. I think that it should be seen by everybody, because if everybody knows something about domestic violence and how to help somebody then I think that domestic violence would be a lot less likely to happen. I think that this is a very important documentary that should be seen.

The US government's Central Intelligence Agency has classified the former director of the CIA, George Bush, Jr., as a traitor, possibly even to his country. This book, written by Carl Bernstein and Michael Isikoff, is an investigation into that charge, a chapter of the investigation that has taken almost a half century. The result is an important, insightful, and also highly entertaining film about the long, dark shadow of George W. Bush and his time in office. It's based on the book by Michael Isikoff, based on his interviews with about 50 former senior CIA officials. Their conclusions about Bush's supposed abandonment of the "public good" have been confirmed in a series of CIA internal reviews. This book was the first to investigate Bush's use of the CIA and the conduct of the war in Iraq, and has provided some of the key documents that have helped discredit Bush's claim to the office of the presidency. The film's four major threads are based on the review of about 50 CIA officials by Michael Isikoff and Carl Bernstein, the Washington Post reporter. They also interviewed many former Bush administration officials and others, and have included hundreds of interviews with people who have heard or read about these allegations. It was edited by Brian Ford, who wrote about the film in his book "From the Archives: The Untold Story of the CIA and the Bush Administration," and used a hand-held camera to make it more understandable to the general public. The film is accessible to anyone, and doesn't mince words about what it is about. Some of the other reviews have asked whether the film is partisan. This film isn't partisan, but it's a movie that deserves to be seen. It's a great story that's worth telling. It's the best documentary of the year, and one of the best films of the decade.

I had the pleasure of seeing this film on its opening day in June of 2002. It was very well-received by the film festival audience, who praised the film for its accuracy. Many people asked for an English version, and a few people went to the cinema in Vancouver to view it. Most comments I heard in the cinema were positive. I think it was due to the low-budget, and because the film is about the war. I never saw it on television, but I'm sure it would be worth seeing in the cinema. I had heard that one of the major criticisms of the film was that it was biased against the US and Canada, and this made me wonder why the US is portrayed so negatively in this film. What would have been the point of portraying the US and Canada as a warring empire? The movie is not a polemic, and the films central thesis is not to prove the other side is wrong. This is the typical American propaganda film. I also found it curious that the US is presented as a superpower, when the two countries are embroiled in a war. That is in no way an acceptable situation for the United States, as this is a country which has been warring with many countries on a much larger scale. The US has never been at peace with the world, and it has a long history of foreign intervention in the world. I found the Hollywood portrayal of the United States as a good guy and the UK as a bad guy a little too neat, and sometimes irritating. I agree that a documentary should not show only sides of the story, but the movie has been done a great service by not following a particular political perspective. We need to see the war from all sides, not just the USA and Canada. I would recommend the movie to anyone interested in international relations and war.

The scope of this film is quite big and in its focus it is bold. However, it is also rather simplistic. It would have been better to have delved more into the reasons why the abuse occurred and the repercussions it had on their families. This would have added to the emotional impact of the film and also shown the victim's resilience. However, I understand that the main focus of the film was to educate people, not to express their anger or their outrage. This is admirable but I think it could have been a lot stronger. On the other hand, it is understandable that a film of this nature would lack content, because there were too many things that could have been left out. However, I think the main strength of the film is the powerful images it has provided. The film was very well made and I felt that the actors did an excellent job. I am very much looking forward to seeing it again. I think this film will be very widely discussed because it is so important and because it provides a very important message that needs to be understood. We are not taught about rape in school, but we are not taught about it in this film. It's something we should be aware of and this film does a great job of showing how we need to educate ourselves about the topic. All in all, I think it is a very well made film that I will be watching again and again. It is also one of the few films that I can say I will watch again and again.

These are just some of the many reasons why I love this movie. I knew about the Smithsonian's work on pyramids in Egypt because I was always fascinated with the subject, and I'm glad to learn that they continue their work even after the building of the pyramids in Cairo. This documentary is interesting because it tells the story of how the Egyptians created and worked with the pyramids. It also shows the passion and dedication of the Egyptian people, as well as the reasons behind the architectural, political, and historical artifacts that they created. The documentary is based on the book, "The Pyramids of Giza: Secrets of a People," by Peter Lamborn Wilson. It was co-authored with Jean-Paul Sartre, who is now in his 80s. I enjoyed this documentary so much that I purchased it for myself. I also enjoyed reading the book, as well. I hope this documentary will find an audience, as well.

The most spectacular movie I've ever seen. "Planet Earth" was an excellent documentary, but this is a film that stays with you for weeks and months. No one is born ready for the experience, and that's why this is such a great movie. It is my favorite documentary of all time, and it deserves to be in the Academy's top 10. You don't have to be an astronaut or a scientist to love it. I can't even describe how well this movie works. Watch it, you'll know.

This documentary was very well done. It's a fascinating story about how the music industry turned into an industry of sex, drugs, and murder. Bill Clinton did a great job of explaining how the "free market" ended up killing the music industry. He spoke about how music was in the forefront of the law and that the top 20 musicians on the Billboard charts were all middle-aged white males. It's also interesting to note that all the songs performed in the film were written by people who were either drug addicts, were working prostitutes, or were doing heroin. And even worse, many of the musicians were addicted to cocaine, were using the drug to perform at weddings, and were dying from it. One of the most memorable scenes was when the publicists were trying to get the Stones to perform at a wedding in the late 70s. The Stones knew they had a star on their hands and refused to come. In the end, they ended up in the street performing "Joints" with a bunch of homeless people and dying. It's worth watching.

There are plenty of excellent films on topics related to black Americans. But when I first heard about the Rwanda genocide, I was outraged. I don't think it's right that the media chose to broadcast this horrible act and the world ignored it. This film is an opportunity to bring awareness to the world about the facts. People in the West may be more knowledgeable about this issue than those in the developing world. And the film has an excellent production value. It's more accurate than a lot of other films and the interviewees are interesting. The film was well edited and gives a realistic view of what happened. The narration is excellent, as it conveys the emotions of the people on the ground and shows the reaction of the media and the UN. The voices of the survivors are well chosen. Overall, a very good film. This was the only one I've seen and I liked it very much.

I agree with the other reviewer on the chapter on the cold war. This film chronicles a few days in the lives of these men, and it was an enjoyable film.
