I have watched this movie before on the Today show, and it is quite a interesting and entertaining show. This movie is only for those who like to see and hear music, and how to be a musician. I enjoyed this movie, it was both funny and poignant, I think this movie would be enjoyable to those who love to listen to music, and have a good time at the same time.

I saw this movie on the Sunday after Memorial Day Weekend and was blown away. This movie does not disappoint in any way. I went in expecting a movie with very little dialogue and big laughs. This movie delivers everything and more. It was a pleasure to watch. It is very well done and professionally done. It's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. If you want to see a really great documentary about the music industry, I recommend "The Lemon Drop", which was also a great documentary.

This documentary is about the relationship between two famous singers from the 60's. I believe that this documentary is not about the relationship between singers but about the relationship between the people around the two. One can see that the people are very different from each other. My opinion is that music is more important than anything else. It's a very good and very important thing to tell the world that music is not only an instrument but it is also a way of life. This documentary is not about the music but about the people who are in the music. I believe that this documentary is very good and very interesting.

I'm sorry I missed this documentary back in 2009, but now I'm glad I saw it. After years of seeing it in the news and from the internet, this documentary will resonate with the majority of people in the US who can relate to the struggles and situations the cast and crew were in. It's well-filmed, well-edited and is very emotional. The story of this film is not complicated, but that's not the point. The point is that it's worth watching for people who care about the human condition and who can appreciate a good documentary. This is a great film and it will be available in a few months on DVD. It's worth it.

Let me start by saying that I loved this film. As a great fan of a lot of the music involved in the film (in particular of the three main songs performed by Lomelda), I was particularly impressed with the films' depth and its depiction of the creative process of the music and its fans. This is not to say that the film does not contain some good music and its songs. It does. However, what makes this film such a great film is that its not a film about music, but rather a film about people. I have never seen a film like this, and I have never been this moved to tears by a film before. This is a great film, and I would recommend it to anyone who would enjoy a film about the artists involved in a great musical phenomenon. It is a great film, and I hope it inspires many more to see it. Highly recommended.

First, I would like to mention that I am a musician and an audiophile. I listen to and appreciate the music of classical and classical jazz. I am not a musician and don't really know anything about classical music. So this movie is about the way music sounds. You could watch it with a book in your hands or on your iPod. When I first saw this movie I didn't really know anything about classical music but now I know a lot. Music is an important part of life. Even if you have nothing to do with music, you can still learn something from this movie. This movie is about a musician and he talks about music in a very interesting way. This movie is very entertaining. I like the way he talks about music and about the way he talks about it. The way he tells the story is great. This is a very good movie. It is a good movie to watch when you have nothing to do. This movie is about a musician and his experience with classical music.

Very disappointing. I expected to see a great documentary about the music of the time period, the personal life of Mapplethorpe, the influence of the Black Panthers on her life, the activism she has. But the film completely ignored any of these important aspects of Mapplethorpe's life and instead focused on Mapplethorpe's hair. Instead of focusing on how she was perceived by the black people of the time period, they instead focused on her hair. As a result, the film went from a very good doc about a very interesting woman to a boring documentary about a very boring woman. I was hoping for a really good documentary, but this is just not the case.

For the sake of historical integrity, I want to say that I am in no way comparing the two films, as I have seen them at different times of their respective lives, and have always found them to be highly worthwhile. But, if I may, I would like to say that I found "The King's Speech" to be a more compelling and moving film. The story of the incident itself is, of course, told to the same effect in the two films, with each character giving their own version of what happened that day. The effect of these two films on the viewer is, of course, entirely different. However, for a film that is both historically accurate and yet still perfectly entertaining, "The King's Speech" is one of the best films I've seen in recent years. In this film, we get to see a true story about the two most famous English poets of the age, Edgar Allen Poe and Robert Burns. Poe is the main character, while Burns is a supporting one. We get to know them and their lives, both as they were and as they were expected to be. In the end, they do get what they deserved, the death penalty. Their trials, both in England and in the United States, are both fascinating, and each has a "star" (in the case of Burns) or two that gives them a lot of star power. We learn about them and their past, and it is a rich and interesting story. The film is told in such a way that we do not even know how many words are used, but we do learn a lot about them, and most of that comes from the interviews with Burns and his wife. Burns is the most compelling character, and we see the anguish he went through, as he tried to understand what his life and the poems he wrote meant to people. He tried to understand the meaning of his poems, and tried to understand what his poem meant to others. It is a tragic and violent story, but we learn a lot about the characters, and we are able to see them from a different perspective. The director does a fantastic job at telling this story, as he takes us into the characters' lives and lets us experience the pain and pleasure that they felt. I highly recommend this film. I highly recommend this film, but not in the same way as I recommend "The King's Speech". This film is different, in that it is almost entirely non-fiction, but it is very entertaining, and the directors follow a great script. The music is very good, and the performances are great. I would recommend this film, but only if you've seen "The King's Speech" or if you have seen "The King's Speech" but not both.

I recently saw this at the Black History Festival in Nashville. I am not a great fan of Elvis Presley. I am not a huge fan of musicals, especially Broadway musicals. I am not a fan of Elvis. The only thing I am partial to are the movies, which I also like. This movie, which is the first of its kind, covers just about all the aspects of Elvis' life and career. If you like Elvis, you will like this movie. If you don't, you won't. I was a little surprised that I liked this movie. I thought it was a little long and that there were a lot of scenes that were too long, but I enjoyed the documentary. I thought it was interesting to hear what people thought of Elvis when the movie was released, and I thought it was great to see it back when it was made. The actors in the movie are all good, so I think the acting is good. I think the movie is interesting, because it covers a lot of issues about Elvis, the media and Elvis. If you are not familiar with the life of Elvis, you will be able to appreciate the movie. If you are not familiar with Elvis, you will appreciate the movie. I thought the movie was very well made. It is a little long and some of the scenes are not as long as I would like, but I think it was well made.

It's difficult to describe my feelings for this movie without ruining the plot, which is such a beautifully crafted mystery. However, I can give you a few clues: a) The mother and father were not only best friends in their youth, but also were lovers; b) As the movie progresses, the father's conscience is revealed. It's not that he is guilt ridden, but he is convinced that his son is a homosexual. c) The father is visibly uncomfortable with his son's homosexual tendencies and it causes friction between the two. d) The father's sexual orientation is based on the gossipy tone of the magazine he writes for his son. He was being forced to publish stories that would shock the masses. e) The father is a revisionist, believing that the father-son relationship is flawed. However, he is willing to reexamine his relationship with his son. This is a long movie and I think I understand the themes much better after watching it. I'm looking forward to seeing it again. What else could I say?

This documentary is a bit of a cheat, but it was well made, with some extremely poignant moments that are worth a watch. I've seen this movie twice, and really do recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it, because there is a lot to learn from the film. I'm sure a lot of people were disappointed with the ending, but I feel like it was important for everyone to see that the film really is about calling out the kind of image that the camera gives us of other people, instead of it being about the people that we see. Not everyone is going to see the same images as everyone else, but that doesn't mean it can't be a learning experience. I feel like the documentary would have been much better if they had covered more of the visuals and less of the story.

Having watched this film, it made me understand how a person with her condition could love and respect music. To think that she was really able to enjoy music and in a way love it was amazing. The film portrayed her view of music and how she made it more than just a hobby. She's now a devoted fan, so I would definitely recommend this film to anyone.

This is one of the best documentaries ever made. Every song is a must see, and every performance of that song is very powerful. It is a very touching story about a young woman who found her voice, and has continued to sing for 20 years, giving concerts all over the world. There are also very moving stories of the people who surround the women and her fans, like her friend and manager, who have all loved her as much as she loved them. The director, who was the manager of the girl who performed for the first time at the young people's home, has made a wonderful documentary that will inspire you and make you cry.

As a fan of the band, I really appreciated the stories of the men and women who had a hand in this legendary music. They had a real sense of responsibility, for their music, for their country and for their fans. They knew they were in their element, but also knew that there was more than what was going to happen. I highly recommend this documentary. This is a must-see.

As an avid musician, I have to say that the documentaries about the musicians of the 1970s and 80s are much more compelling than the popular biographies of the era. While this film is obviously an attempt to explore the musicians in a general way, it is very clear that it is also a meditation on the personal lives of the musicians themselves. It is not at all hard to figure out what the film's intent is. It's just that the film is all over the place. While there are some enjoyable moments, like the late great Jimmy Page's interviews, there are many other interviews that are just plain boring. There are interviews with artists who are in their early 30s, who have given out of context interviews. There are interviews with musicians who have gone on to great things in their careers. But, there are also interviews with musicians who have simply disappeared, who have made a career out of nothing but being musicians. The film is more about the musicians themselves than about the music they make. The film could have been longer, but, unfortunately, it is not.

This film was a revelation for me. I grew up watching and hearing about all the great female singers, and I never knew about the fact that so many people were "gonna die" at the time. I learned a lot about the times, and the emotions that are expressed and the fact that no matter how much you want to, you can't change what happened. I can't wait to see the film on DVD. It was so touching, and I couldn't stop thinking about it. This is an important film, and I hope to see more of it.

This documentary is incredible. I was stunned. The stories were so true, it was like I was there. I was in awe. I was so amazed by the amazing stories and the bravery of these musicians. It was truly amazing. The documentary went from the musicians themselves, to their families, friends, and music industry folks. I was so touched by these stories. The film was so well done. It was so informative. It is incredible how they were able to capture this incredible story. I have never seen a documentary that was as well done as this one. It is absolutely amazing. I recommend it to anyone who has ever wanted to know more about the lives of these musicians. I have seen this film three times now. I will be sure to purchase this documentary when it comes out on DVD. I am going to get this film and watch it at least three more times. I highly recommend this film.

A documentary about a woman, who did not know the woman she loved was dying. She did not know her husband was gay. This woman had to know. This documentary will not be easy to watch, and you will be in tears at some parts. It is so moving, so powerful, that you will feel you can not take it away. The documentary shows what is happening with so many LGBT people in the USA. It is sad, and that is what the documentary is about. The documentary goes deep into the lives of those who are struggling with this. It shows the struggles they go through, and how the gay community is being affected. This documentary is amazing. It is a very emotional and powerful documentary that will stay with you for days. The documentary is so well done. I highly recommend watching it.

In a time where most music documentaries are either boring or boring, this one is actually really entertaining. The documentary is well-done, with some great voice-over (especially by Peter Gabriel) and lots of good clips from the past. In my opinion, this documentary should be required viewing for everyone, if only to get a taste of what it was like to be a musician in the 60s. I recommend this film to everyone. It will be remembered for years to come. (Also, check out Peter Gabriel's performance on the last night of the World Tour, which is a great performance of "The Bird" and is great fun)

This is not a documentary, but a series of interviews with artists, critics, musicians, musicians' wives, musicians' girlfriends, and musicians' mothers. It's a beautiful, almost poetic way to tell the story of the musicians' families and their lives. The focus is on the life and death of both Joan and Joan's husband, Jim. The interviews are based on material from the performances and recordings that are still available on CDs and VHS tapes. They are not usually included in the liner notes of the CD, which is a shame, because they are some of the most poignant and personal stories. This is an outstanding and thoughtful movie.

For the uninitiated, my personal opinion is that it is not necessary to follow the Hollywoodized version of the story. After all, there are so many movies based on the life of Elvis Presley that have made this story a huge success and the music (especially the music) is what makes it such a popular movie. But what about this one? Well, let's start with the music. The music, the songs, the songs, the songs! This film is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. There are many quotes that will stick with me and will make me cringe in shame. The soundtrack is so amazing and if you have not seen it yet, you should be buying it right now! The soundtrack is phenomenal! And the music is something that most people are unfamiliar with, but not me. I was so amazed that the music is not just the music that Elvis would have played in his "record albums". The songs are so amazing and so catchy. I'm not even going to try to describe them in a way that it will be easy to follow. The soundtrack is simply amazing and it should be on your "must-have" list. But even more than the soundtrack, I loved the fact that this movie is about the person, not about the story. There are a few interviews and a few facts that are shown that will make you laugh, but the real point of this movie is to tell the story of Elvis. If you've not seen it, do it now!

I'm not much of a fan of pap. I hate the modern Hollywood music industry. I know that some of the songs in this film are actually not original, but that doesn't matter to me. In the end, I think I may have finally come to see the true source of pop music. The film takes a long time to tell the story of how a famous song came to be. This is a very personal story. The film does not tell us about the music industry. It's about a family, and how they deal with the difficulties that come with being in a position of power. The film does not show us the background of the songwriters and the people who created the music. It's more about a family who is struggling with how to handle their power. The film is very well done. The music is great, and I really liked the story. It was definitely worth my time.

Just caught this on the USA TV channel and was just blown away by the sheer force and power of this film. I have to say it is the best documentary I've ever seen on one of my favourite bands. I'm not a fan of any of their music, but this film is just incredible. I'm not saying I am a big fan of Elton John, but I have to say this is by far the most moving, inspiring and interesting film I've ever seen. The documentary goes from the days of the Beatles in London to the time of their break-up to the recording of their new album "The White Album". This is truly a documentary that you will want to watch over and over again. Just go and see it. I'm going to watch it again and again.

I can't get over the fact that a film that's supposed to be about the music industry can make such a passionate and unique film. It has been about 30 years since the music industry has been brought to the big screen but here we are, a little over a decade later, and the music industry is finally coming to the big screen. But this film is much more than just the music industry, it's a film about the people that are in it. The two people in the film are Kelly Rowland and Sebastian Junger, both are real life musicians. They are both completely dedicated to their craft and they are the reason why we can finally have a real feel for what it's like to be a musician, they are the reason why this film is so special. The film has a little bit of everything, it's a bit about the music industry, it's about musicians, it's about their families and their lives. It's also about a guy named Andrew Cornelius, who is a music producer. He also plays in a band called The Buggles and it's amazing to see them in this film. They are so real, and the best part is that they really look like the real people. It's amazing to see how the industry can turn so quickly from a place of ignorance to a place where you're not making any money but you're creating a lot of music. If you're a musician and you're looking for a film that's about music and has a lot of music, I highly recommend this film. It's great.
