What I really love about this movie is that it reminds me of the sense of isolation that I experienced during my time in the camp. I can recall moments of being surrounded by a sea of people trying to escape the constant fear that they would be discovered and killed. It was only the memories of the characters that kept me sane. As a film, it was superb. The casting was very good, but the only thing I didn't like about the movie was the fact that the performances were done by actors from the camp itself. It seemed that the actors were trying to be "real" and "authentic" when in reality they weren't. The film itself was also really good, although it could have been better. In the end, I recommend this movie to anyone who is into WWII history or anything related to it. It is an excellent film that I will definitely be buying when it comes out on DVD.

I had a hard time believing that this was a documentary. I thought it would be a mixture of interviews and songs. But I was wrong. This was not a documentary, it was a short documentary. It was a little bit boring, but it was fascinating and it made me feel more about the issues that I had been looking into. It was also very informative and very honest. I hope this is the start of a series that shows the life of a real musician, but don't expect to hear any songs from him. I can't believe that this documentary was nominated for an Oscar. I was so shocked, that I just want to tell everyone that this documentary is a great one and a very good one. This was not a documentary, but a documentary about an artist, it is about him and it is a documentary about his life. It is about his music, about his family, about his relationships. It is a great documentary, and a great one. So if you want to know what it is like to be a musician, and how it feels to be a musician, then you should definitely watch this documentary. I gave it 8/10. It is a great documentary, it is a very good documentary, and it is a great one.

Laws were changed, eventually all the sports we grew up with were outlawed, and we all lost the faith that all it takes is a touch and a touch of an attitude to get the desired result. Soon after this show was released I was at a football game in my college town, and when the referee told the officials to stand down during the play that looked like a ball with a couple of feet of ground left I lost my mind. From then on I was never, and still am not, able to trust sports referee's. The TV show I saw, THE LAW WITHIN, covered the history of sports laws for the American public and how the laws were slowly being changed in the late 1960s, and today sports can cause real and significant problems in our society. The TV show, by Kevin Mallory, covered more than half of the history of sports law in the USA. I hope this is enough to put you into a good mood for the movie!

I don't think I have ever had the experience of seeing a film at the cinema so intimately as I have with "Wild Heart". The great thing about the cinema as a medium is that it allows you to immerse yourself in a scene so completely and wholly, but at the same time it allows the viewer to suspend reality for a little while. If you are really interested in a film, you are often able to see the film from multiple perspectives: a cinema poster, a magazine, a postcard, a small box, a doll, a book, etc. The film comes across as a video that has been cut out into a picture, the sound as a cassette tape. The film is one of the best I have ever seen and it is great to have it on DVD. The acting is excellent and all the performances are so strong. The dialogue is often very funny, the colour and texture of the images are incredible, and the naturalism of the photography is fantastic. If you are able to suspend reality for a little while and suspend yourself in a cinema you will be able to see the film at the same time as you watch it. I am not normally one to write reviews but I feel it is my duty to voice my opinion on the merits of this film. I have seen this film over a thousand times and I still enjoy the film every time I watch it. I don't find myself looking at the screen to see what is going on and I don't get the huge sense of dread that I sometimes get from watching movies like "Black Rain" or "Halloween". I believe that when I watch "Wild Heart" I am watching a film that is great because it is great. There is nothing like watching a great movie and I am forever grateful for that.

The best thing about this documentary is that it captures the back-story of the acts, which is pretty interesting. The best part is that the interviews with the real families of the victims of these acts are very compelling, and not always positive. A few have said that their father is a crazed killer, while others have said that they were traumatized by his actions. That's really a valid point. It's also interesting to hear about the real motivations of the murderers. In some cases, they've said that they just wanted to be heroes, or they just wanted to blow their ex-girlfriend's head off. This was a pretty common argument to hear from the killers, and it's interesting to hear the logic behind it. Overall, this documentary is definitely worth your time.

Filmmaker/filmmaker Andrew McNally has a great ability to put people in the places of great pain and to show the history behind them. His most recent project, "The Other Side of Hope and Fear", is the most comprehensive portrait of a man who is supposed to be a hero in a Christian context but whose work has exposed the torture of thousands of political prisoners in China. His first film was a cinematic exploration of the Holocaust in Argentina. He is the current director of a documentary film on a particularly awful regime in Cuba. The film shows a country that has almost completely disappeared its middle class, but also the brutal practice of torture in a prison regime that had no other choice but to be closed down. The film is about the terrible love affair between a wife and a husband, who love each other with an obsession that could not be expressed in words, but a desire that is as strong as their hunger for power. The film takes its time to tell the story. McNally chooses to do this by showing the abuses, and the consequences that have been created in order to punish the victims. I was stunned by how quickly the story unfolded, and the way the torture was presented in a way that did not give the viewer the impression that it was an ordinary torture, but something that was both horrible and funny. McNally had the talent to show this brutality, but he chose to be at the other end of it. I am a big fan of McNally, and I was especially impressed by his work in the documentary "The Other Side of Hope and Fear". I felt that the director did a great job in telling the story of this guy who wanted to be a hero, but in the end he became a monster. This is the story of a man who gave his life to do something that was not right, but in the end he became the monster he thought he was fighting against.

The people who made this film should be given awards for this incredible work. I've never seen a documentary that made me cry like this one. I'm going to watch it again and again, and I'll continue to watch it. I will always watch it, because it's a testament to humanity. No matter what color you are, your skin tone, your religion, you're your country, or how old you are, you are more human than anything in this world. When we stop to think about the things that make us human, we realize that everything is beautiful. You know when you go to the beach, or you go to a concert, and you're there because of love, or because of the music, or because you want to be part of something that you love. No matter how long it takes, or how hard it is, or how much you have to work for it, it's never easy. The people who made this film are amazing. You are truly an inspiration to me. I wish that you would be given more recognition, because you have made a film that will not only change the way I look at the world, but will also change the way I look at myself. I'll be watching this movie over and over again, and I hope that it inspires people to see the beauty in life.
