This documentary is a must see for anyone who has any of the above genetic diseases. It tells the story of Dr. Miriam Ochs, a gynecologist who found a cure for cervical cancer at the same time her son was diagnosed with the same disease. Dr. Ochs' work was so revolutionary that she was harassed by the FDA when it was discovered that she had a cure for cervical cancer. The documentary shows Dr. Ochs and her husband Harvey in the early 1950s when they discovered the cure for cervical cancer and how they fought the FDA. It also shows her husband Harvey's attempts to bring the FDA to her and her work on the cervical cancer trials. There is great footage of her husband, then-President Bill Clinton, and the FDA as well as the science behind her work. This is an incredible film, and I think everyone should see it.

What a masterpiece! This is a must see documentary! The story of Ronald Reagan and the 1980 election can be summarized in 3 simple sentences. And it is not that hard to understand. This film will have you rolling on the floor with laughter. If you liked this documentary please watch "Big Daddy" and "The Ten Commandments" and then read the book "Fahrenheit 9/11" by Michael Moore. You will see how the press was controlled by special interests. And you will see how George W. Bush has destroyed all of our freedoms. You will see how our freedoms are being taken away from us. You will see the changes in the culture of the country that will happen when it is changed. You will see how the media has become more dangerous than the terrorists. And you will see how much money is being spent on government and how it is taking over our media. So please take a look at this film and share it with your friends. Watch it and be amazed by this documentary. It is worth every penny and you will love it.

Good documentary. Although I am sure that you can find at least one person who thinks that this documentary is a bit biased, it is fair. In fact I think that most people who are taking part in this documentary are doing it because they like how it is presented. A very good documentary, all around. Very well done.

This is a documentary that I could watch over and over again, and if you like documentaries this is one of the best I have ever seen. There are so many scenes that speak to a lot of peoples lives, whether they be a retired veteran, a single parent, or someone who simply wants to help people in any way they can. From the mothers of two deceased soldiers, to the homeless men and women of the city, to people of all ages, this documentary is an amazing eye opener. There are many stories from so many different places, and this film can be watched over and over again. It's a must watch, and I highly recommend this film for all of you that want to be educated about any aspect of your life. You'll be so much happier for it.

This film is about how a woman wants to know who her father is, why he was killed and why he did it. The film is very well done, the performances are great, the subject matter is very well handled and the pacing is very good. I have to say that this film is a story that needs to be told, and the film makers should be applauded for bringing this story to the screen. I'm not even going to waste time saying how much I loved this film because there is so much I can say and the film makers deserve great credit for doing this. My biggest complaint about the film is that it is a little bit too long. It is a bit too long and sometimes I was left waiting for something to happen, something to make the film work. This is definitely a film that needs to be seen to be believed, but I think that it deserves more time on the screen. My only regret about the film is that it is not longer and it could have been so much more. The film makers have done an amazing job in bringing this story to the screen. I hope that more films like this will be made.

The film is based on a true story of a man's "The Judge" (1982). A man, Eugene Allen Stewart, was convicted of the rape of a woman, Janice Welles, and sentenced to death. He was released on parole in 1990 and he was pardoned by President Bill Clinton. At that time he was married to Connie Jeane Baker, who would later become a popular singer. After his release, the New York Times reported that Stewart had been spending time with friends and his ex-wife. Stewart was not charged with the rape. He was charged with having an illegitimate child with Baker and with being in a relationship with Baker. He was convicted of having an illegitimate child, and the conviction was overturned. In 1993, Baker was convicted of first-degree manslaughter, and she was sentenced to three years in prison. She is serving her sentence in the New York State Penitentiary in Albany. He was not charged with the rape. He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but the case was dismissed. Stewart is currently in his forties and lives in a nursing home. He has not been able to marry Baker, and he is married to a fourth time. The film is just terrific. It is one of those films you watch and think, "That was fascinating, but I just don't know what happened." It is difficult to explain the film to someone who has not seen it. The film is shot in black and white, so that you can see what is happening. The film shows how life is changing for men who are convicted for rape. The film is also about the media. They have reported that Stewart's sentence was reversed, but I would not call it a victory. In fact, Baker was not freed until 1997. The film is not a "good" film. But it is so important. The reason is simple: because it is important that men, women, and children be treated fairly. There are still two million rapists in the United States. Most of them are men. There are 4 million women who have been raped. There are six million children who are sexually abused. Only 20% of the women who have been raped have been able to report it. Women are still raped in this country. The problem is that our justice system does not give men, women, and children the same respect that they deserve. I was one of the leading voices on the Commission on the Status of Women, and I was fortunate to have served on the Commission. I met and worked with all of the Commissioners. Many of the Commissioners were fantastic. It was very important to me that the Commission was able to get unanimous support. I have been a director, a producer, and a writer. I also have been a journalist. I have been in prison, and I have been a survivor of sexual violence. I want to say that, because I feel that it is my duty to do so. If we are serious about the situation of women and children who have been sexually abused,

In an excellent documentary, "The Judge," presented by PBS, the film makes it clear that this is a very important film. In the course of its telling, the film shows, as well as the participants, how the judges and jurors, as well as the attorneys, attorneys, lawyers, and victims, reacted to the evidence and their decisions. The film is a wonderful, extremely well done documentary. The actors did a wonderful job of conveying their feelings and the emotion of the real events. The subject matter and the attention to detail, the people interviewed, the documentation of the "evidence," and the documentary format are all excellent.

I am not a huge fan of Johnnie Walker so I had very low expectations when I saw this movie. I found it to be very entertaining, and thought the interview segments were great. I also loved the use of sound and music, and how they managed to get the movie into a modern day setting. Also, I liked the behind the scenes of the movie, and how the interviews were done. You felt like you were there. It was a bit of a slow start, but I'm sure if you pay attention to it, you'll get to it. It was very entertaining and an excellent movie.

This is a good documentary for anyone that wants to know more about the trial of the famous gangster. I think this movie shows that a man is not a prisoner of his fate, and that sometimes you are the only one who knows how the world really works and how you should behave in life. Another thing that shows that a man should never be afraid to act alone is that he had the guts to confront a man who had a lot of people that believed in him and his ideals, and to stand up for the truth. He was a man of his word, but at the end of the day he was a gangster, and he had to do what he thought was right. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that is interested in the history of mobsters. I also recommend this movie to anyone that is a fan of Nick Cage's, and wants to learn more about him. In conclusion, this is a must watch movie for everyone!

I cannot recommend this movie enough. This is by far the best documentary I have seen about the H-1B visa program. I do not agree with the rest of the negative reviews. I think the H-1B visa program is more about getting cheap labor than the program itself. If it is a program that only allows foreign workers for certain jobs and they get visas for those jobs, why are the foreign workers being paid far more than the American workers who are being held against their will? I hope this movie makes people understand the importance of the H-1B visa program. People have been misled about it in the past and I think this documentary helps to explain why. The companies that hire these H-1B workers do not actually have to pay them the H-1B wage rate. What they do have to do is train them for the job and then they can get H-1B visas. If the companies had to pay the H-1B wage rate then they would not hire these foreign workers. I think the H-1B program is very important. I hope everyone who reads this review understands the importance of this program and hopefully will try to find the time to see this documentary. I have tried to find it but I don't know where. I can only hope that someone will make a DVD of this documentary for people to watch and make up their own minds about it.

This is a documentary that really takes the viewer on a journey with a single character, a man who is called 'Mr. Judge' and is just one of the main characters in a multi-million dollar lawsuit that is very much about a man who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It's a very real documentary and a really good one at that. The writing is very good, you really get to know the character of Mr. Judge and you can really feel for him and his family. I really liked this film and I highly recommend it to anyone. I have watched it many times and it never gets old. It's a great film and I highly recommend it to anyone. It's a great documentary. Rating 10/10

The heart of this film is the testimony of two women who were victims of domestic violence and of their abuser's violent behavior. It is a powerful and inspiring story of women who are strong, and who know that they can fight back. The film itself, though, is not focused on a single person. It is a story of abuse in general, and the abuse of violence by all parties. There are numerous testimonies from women who describe how the abuse and violence affected their lives, and how they did not know what to do. The film is extremely effective in conveying this message. This film is a must see. 9/10

I would say this is one of the best documentaries I've seen in years. The show it's self was an hour and a half of all of the amazing details of the life of Roger Ebert. I have been a fan of Roger for years. I have a DVD of his documentaries and I will always love his interviews and his passion for film. This documentary was an amazing feat in making this happen. I have seen all of his work. And, of course, the movie. I have never seen a documentary about Roger that was as amazing as this one. He is an incredible person. I loved the way he talks about his life and all of the stories he's heard and how they have shaped his career. He is such an interesting person. He's so passionate about what he does and how he does it. It's a joy to watch. The most amazing part of this documentary was when he tells a story about what it was like to make his first film. You see how he tells his story of making it and then how he's going to tell his story of how he made the film. It's just so beautiful. I would recommend this documentary to everyone. I can't wait to get the DVD so that I can watch it over and over again. I think anyone should see this documentary. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I loved it. I highly recommend.

What to say about this film? How to describe it? None of the questions really mattered. It's a movie that creates an illusion and then explores the matter in a positive way. The story about the judge was not the most important thing. It was the fact that this movie was a study of how Hollywood manipulates people and how this "art" is something very old and is so powerful. I have watched many movies in my life and I have always been fascinated by this type of movies, especially when they were told in a really good way. This movie is simply a beautiful example of what can be done and how much more powerful the truth can be. I would highly recommend it. It is one of the best movies I have ever watched. It is also a good example of how much better and more powerful documentaries can be and how much more it can be used.

The whole interview with Roger Ebert was so interesting, I could watch this again and again. It's one of the most fascinating stories in all of movie making. It's about how a studio tries to cut a story short to get more money and cut out the weakest part of the story. It's fascinating to see the actual phone calls that were made between the director and the studio head to try and have the story trimmed down. It's so interesting to hear the director talking about why he doesn't like the story so much, it's like the entire film was his answer to that question. The film also gives us a chance to hear the real story behind the film and why it's such a big hit. I recommend this documentary to anyone who has ever had to cut something short in film and to anyone who is a fan of the story.

I saw this movie on HBO late last night. I was really looking forward to this one. This is the type of movie that will definitely get people talking about the issue of "whether the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment." It's not going to be popular, but it's an important and important movie. I can't recommend it enough. I will say that the movie was extremely well done, but it was not a high quality production. There were many scenes where the director did not show the whole thing. I think it was the right thing to do, because it would have been too much. And, if you don't know, I was born in 1983. So, I can't say that I have seen the whole thing. I can tell you that I have heard people talk about this movie before it was released, and they would say things like, "it's not fair that people have to watch this, or that it's just a pro-death penalty movie." I'm not going to say that it is not a good movie, but it definitely is not a pro-death penalty movie. If you really want to talk about the death penalty, see the movie "The Butler," which is an amazing movie about the United States of America and the death penalty. This is not a pro-death penalty movie, and it's certainly not going to change your mind about the death penalty. You just need to talk to people who have seen this movie. It's an important movie and should be seen by as many people as possible. This is the type of movie that will make a difference.

This film was a treat for me, being an avid fan of Jack Black. I can tell you from my experience with this movie that it was a great film, and Jack Black was fantastic. I think people who are new to the Jack Black brand of comedy will not like the film, but if you are a fan of his, you will be entertained throughout. It also has some great themes about family and the meaning of life. The dialogue was witty and well put together, and although it is not something that many people will relate to, it is a good film for people who have an interest in culture and life.

I was fortunate enough to go to the world premiere of the film at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the director was also present, in Los Angeles. My friends and I were able to stay in a room at the same hotel for free, just so we could watch the film. After the film was over, the entire room was full of people, and even though the film was over, the audience was still talking about it. I was impressed by the emotional depth of the film, and how the director captured so much of the problems of the prison system. This is a must see film for any person that believes in justice.

The Judge is a fascinating film. It has a very interesting script, and I felt like I was watching a documentary. However, it was also very hard to watch. I think the issue of homosexuality, and the way that it is presented to the viewer, is difficult to watch. I know it's a movie, but it's hard to watch when you can't be sure if you're watching a documentary or a movie. When I first saw this movie, I wasn't sure if it was a documentary or a movie, but after watching it again, I realize that it's a documentary. It is difficult to watch, but it is also very fascinating. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the history of the LGBT community, and the way that people are portrayed in documentaries. It's also interesting to see how the filmmakers used a lot of the footage that they had, and some of the clips that they didn't have.

This is a great documentary. It shows a lot of the things that make us human. It talks about the importance of trust and relationships, and shows that there is no such thing as perfect. I think this documentary is very important for everyone, because it shows how much we care for our fellow man. It also shows how our society is in such a state of chaos and confusion, and how much we hate each other. It shows the importance of family and how important it is. It also shows that in this world there is only one way, and that is "the right way". If you want to know what people think about the world, this is the way to find out. This is a documentary that will touch you, and it will make you think. I recommend this documentary to all, because it shows that there is more to life than we ever think. I also recommend this documentary to anyone who is a student of philosophy, or any other type of education. It will teach you about human nature and how much we really care about others.

This is an outstanding documentary that explains why so many people hate and fear Muslims and why they may think the US government is right about them. I was very impressed with the way the film was put together and the way it was presented. It was not just a documentary, it was a movie that was told from the perspective of the people who were the subjects of it. I was also impressed with how the film was able to convey information in a non-biased manner. I was able to see and hear both sides of the argument, both sides of the story. I was impressed with the fact that the filmmakers were able to convey so much information in such a way that it would not be confusing for the viewer. I was also impressed with the way the information was presented and how the director was able to convey it in such a way that the viewer would not be confused or upset. I felt that this was an outstanding documentary and I would recommend this film to anyone.

All I can say is that if you're looking for a detailed, wide-ranging, and penetrating look into the world of religious extremism, this movie is the way to go. And if you're looking for something that will give you a few seconds of entertainment, well, you'll probably like it. I think this movie will be a big hit with Christians, because it shows the harm that religious extremists can do, and what people can do to stay away from them. It's not easy to hate someone when they're your best friend. But once you've seen it, you'll know what I mean. For the record, I have not gone through a Christian extremist's recruitment, and I have never attended a service, nor have I ever read any religious literature. I'm not sure if my opinions on the matter are accurate, but if they are, they're not going to change. So if you think you might be one of the people who has been brainwashed, I highly recommend this movie. If you don't, I don't know what to say to you. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to know more about the dangers of religious extremism, and to anyone who wants to be educated about it.

I watched this documentary not knowing what to expect. I have not been a fan of the subject matter in a documentary since the Roger Ebert documentary on TV. It's a shame to not see that because I feel that they put the facts well and that they made the subject matter to be understandable. The Documentary is about the Judge's life from the time he was born until the time he is in his 80's. The subject matter was told well and the stories were fascinating. I don't think that the subject matter will get a lot of attention because of the subject matter itself. It's something that a lot of people don't know. It's something that most people don't care about. I feel that the Documentary was worth it and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope that it is distributed in more places.

I thought the movie was great. It was well produced. The footage was interesting. I didn't feel like I was watching a documentary. I thought the music was great. I am a big fan of Coldplay. I loved the ending. I thought that the movie was a good representation of the trials and tribulations of a woman accused of a rape and the way that justice is dealt. I'm not a lawyer, but I do believe that a woman has the right to a lawyer. I am very glad that I watched this movie. It has helped me to learn more about the case. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the subject of rape.
