Facing illness, death threats, corruption, and complacency, Patima's fearless determination for justice inspires her nation and the world.

I enjoyed this movie. The people interviewed were compelling. The direction of the film was nice. I love film noir. This movie showed an important, honest look at how the death of loved ones affects the rest of their lives. I was pleasantly surprised at how many strong-minded individuals in the family came out the story and that this movie helped provide hope. I would definitely recommend this movie.

I am a big fan of the book, but I have not read the movie yet. I was a bit disappointed with the movie, but I must say I did enjoy it. I am a bit disappointed with the movie because the movie is very slow. It takes a long time for the story to get going. The movie is very dark and depressing. The movie is not a good movie. I recommend you to watch the book first. The movie is not a good movie, but I think it's worth it. I think this is a good movie to watch.

A film like this can't possibly exist. The director, Nicholas Meyer, has made a film, and it is almost a parody of itself. Perhaps that is its point. If so, great. If not, great. But I think this film is a hilarious but also tragic commentary on war and the actions of men. It is a tragic commentary on the human being. The war-mongers seem to be oddly happy when human beings are killed and the soldiers seem to be incredibly ill and sad. In one scene, there is a tank crew that are "tired of being with that guy." One of the soldiers says: "There is one thing we can't stand to be associated with. It doesn't matter who it is. If the enemy happens to be a child, we shoot him." That is the perfect expression of the cold, selfish attitudes of some of these soldiers. The soldiers are not angels, but they are humans. If they did not exist, this film would not have been made. But as it is, the men do exist. And the men are sad. They are men who have lost sons and daughters. And they are like the world's war-mongers. They have lost their humanity and love. They are like men who take pleasure in killing, they seem to have lost a part of themselves in doing so. The soldiers and their families, their friends and neighbors, have lost their humanity. The soldier who carries a baby is treated like a monster, like a rapist, and like a murderer. The soldier who kills his friend is like a monster. The mother is a virgin and a child. The father is a man with lost his humanity. It is hard to take these men seriously, as I did. But then again, it is hard to take these men seriously. I laughed a lot at the scenes in which soldiers run around killing others and they can only be described as funny. If this film was not made, the war-mongers would have been given the films to use as justification for war. They would have been able to point to this film as a justification for their war-mongering and their actions. There are certainly scenes that are intentionally disturbing. The soldier who kills his friend is a child. The mothers of the soldiers who kill others are children. And, of course, there are some scenes of really disturbing violence. These scenes are not aimed at us. It is supposed to be scary. We are not supposed to feel sad. We are supposed to laugh and be amused. This film has left me horrified at what it has done to these men. But it has also left me profoundly sad, and sometimes ashamed to be a human being.

I can't say this is a 'must-see' film but I certainly feel it deserves at least a watch. It's an eye-opening look into the modern society of the early 21st century and what makes it so dangerous. The movie starts out fairly realistically with very talented actors playing both sides of the conflict and then quickly shifts into a similar situation in Australia. The people featured in the movie, such as reporters and news reporters, who had some of the most difficult jobs in a country with the most difficult of lives are presented beautifully. The truly disturbing parts are the scenes where the people responsible for this type of content are rewarded with accolades and attention and that is an extremely unpleasant experience to see. I had to leave the theater after the first twenty minutes because it was that intense and the lack of laughter from the audience was absolutely painful. At the end of the movie I felt completely refreshed by the fact that the perpetrators of this heinous content can no longer get away with it because if they did then we would be at a far higher risk for having our life's in danger, I certainly wouldn't let anyone put that in my hands. I have a feeling that a film like this will be a necessity in the future for everyone in any country around the world. It's no secret that there are very large issues facing our society and in the movie it is extremely refreshing to see a movie that isn't held to a standard and instead shines light on the humanity involved in the topic.

The new documentary, "In Search of Peace: The Heart of the Micronesian Navy", is much more than it seems. It is a good documentary about the Micronesian Navy, who are the one group of Americans on the planet who are primarily interested in "peace". The story of the Micronesians is one of heroism, bravery, sacrifice, perseverance, and self-sacrifice. It is one of the most inhumanely brutal nations on earth, but it is also one of the most peaceful. Those who love the Micronesians will definitely enjoy this film. The film gives an intimate look at how the Micronesians' Navy is founded and how they train their ships, it is highly informative, and it is very funny. What I love about this film is how I see the Micronesians and their people as not "aggressive" nor "violent" in any way. They are not savage or aggressive in any way, they are peace-loving, nonviolent, and they are on the whole a beautiful people. When the crew and passengers of a ship are on their way to go to their home island, they are sure that the journey will not be without pain and suffering. But that is what they know in their heart, and they decide to make the journey. They care for their crew, they give them much-needed, desperately needed food, they give them some hot drinks. They even allow them to perform some of the most arduous and dangerous maneuvers in the ocean, they do everything they can to keep them safe and to keep them alive. In the end, there is no choice, no choice but to endure every moment of the journey. That is what they do, that is what they will always do. It is the motto of the Micronesians, to "go back to the road, to fight the little battles and to lose the great battles". That is the motto of this film, and it is something that I think all people who love the Micronesians and who care about the Micronesians should know. A rating of 9.6 out of 10 is well deserved.

First of all, I have been intrigued about this documentary ever since I heard that it was going to be released. I've watched some of Cameron's documentaries before, but not this one. I think, the DVD has a lot of great features. I got to see this documentary with no expectations, and I enjoyed every minute. The story is quite short, and the director focused on the major ones - obviously there was a lot of other stuff, but this is really where the story starts. The director was way better in my opinion than some people were. I recommend this documentary to everyone. It has many different stories, from the public to celebrities. I was impressed with the filmmaking style and the storytelling. I was impressed with the animation, of course, which was so surprising. I really like all the details that the director had on his screen. It's very inspiring and the viewer will learn a lot about the artists. It's the subject that interested me the most. I enjoyed it. I hope that people won't let their boring social life interfere with their artistic life. If you want to get to know artists in your area, or if you want to be inspired by what you see, this is a documentary you should see.

This is an excellent movie about a group of ocean miners who were often needed to guard the mines, and did so until well into their retirement age. Not being able to find a suitable replacement (and not wanting to put the veteran workers at risk), they're reluctantly approached by the miners' widow to take a new miner under their wing. The new miner, Marcus, is much more interested in the new role than they are, but of course the two are soon to fall in love and find other things to do with their time together. The miners' daughter also comes along for the ride, as she wishes to see more of the mines and goes to visit Marcus while he's on the trip. While the movie may not be the most surprising, the way it was presented made it very accessible. Most people probably aren't aware of the story and probably just know about it from the title and not much else. With that said, this documentary was very well done. The movie wasn't exciting but it was very entertaining. I have seen it many times and have enjoyed it as much as the first time I saw it. The movie is mostly about the miners, but there is also a lot of talk about the new miner and his wife, the miners' daughter, the family, the history of the mines, and the movie itself. The characters were great, and the acting was pretty good. Overall, this is a very entertaining documentary that is very well done.

I really enjoyed this documentary. I saw it with a few friends and the majority of them said it was good. I liked how they interviewed members of the band without a sense of reverence or respect. If you're looking for the best album or the greatest album, you'll have to go watch something else. This is really about the band and what happened. At times, they seem almost like they didn't have any ideas. They seemed like they had no direction or purpose. However, the last two albums are phenomenal. It is an amazing tribute to the early years of the band and it is something I'll never forget.

I'm not a fan of such filmmaking, I tend to be quick to judge a movie and over-analyze it. However, it is not only a work of art, it is also a highly documented story that gives a new insight to a huge number of people. One thing I have been surprised of the documentary is that the people it is about, do not turn out to be the main actors in the film. The narrator is German journalist Gregor Hoffman who tells the stories of the people he interviewed. One of them is Oliver Hirschbiegel who wrote the book "Our Enemy" in which he asks people questions about the Nazi occupation of Germany. He was the first person to say that they were Germans, it's not known if he actually lived in a concentration camp or whether he is lying. He is a fascinating character, he's not a Nazi sympathizer, he just wants to see for himself. The people interviewed are mainly concentrated in one place, they are from East Germany, Poland and other parts of the world. The director uses various ways to get them talking to each other, one of them is to introduce us to their art and writing. In this way the documentary is a must-see, it tells you how a society behaves, how the system works, how it makes people out to be. You can see many images of what the people face when there is war, there is never a silence in the German speaking community. I think that it would be important to show the Americans too, because they have a different idea, they are more like the other Europeans than Germans. You see that in America there is a lot of censorship about this subject and their reactions. For example, I saw an interview with journalist Hilary Swank about her father and how he was tortured, he was shot at the end and is shown in a hospital bed. There is a lot of discourse about the Holocaust and what the people went through and you can see the racism in America. A lot of American politicians are worried about what happened in the Holocaust, it seems to be a very important issue. This documentary will make you want to read more about this subject. If you liked it you should watch a lot more movies about it, it is a little art work. In conclusion, a must-see. 9/10

I'm not a huge fan of Michael Moore, and I usually don't watch documentaries. I did watch this one because of the subject matter, and I think it was a good one. I thought it was good, but I would have liked to see more of the details. For example, the first time I heard about this documentary, I thought it was just another documentary about the military. I was wrong. It was about the Navy Seals, and it was about the Navy Seals. The Navy Seals were the elite of the Navy, and the documentary showed them in great detail. It also showed the personal lives of the SEALs, and the SEALs were very close to the rest of the Navy. They were very professional. I thought the Navy Seals were portrayed very well, and the Navy Seals were portrayed very well. I think the documentary was good, but I would have liked to see more details. I think the film was well done. I would recommend this documentary to anyone.

I enjoyed this film from beginning to end. It had such a striking, fast-paced story line that kept me interested and focused. The filming, I thought, was superb and that can only be achieved with a large budget and the full assistance of a large and diverse group of cast and crew. The crew, I believe, did a really great job. It showed what would have happened to the crew and what happened to the actors, if they had not had the help and support of the community. I have seen so many documentaries about bands who have disbanded and for me, when a band makes the decision to disband, it is always difficult to take that chance. I am one of those people who hate to see bands disband because of financial problems, but I can not help but feel that for some reason, some band members just have to do it. And I think that the film addresses this issue beautifully. If you are going to be a band, please think about your own family and friends. If you can, try to find someone who you can actually talk to about what it is like to be a member of a band. If you can, do so. I know that it is a very difficult task to ask someone for advice. However, if you do find a musician who has gone through the same thing, you will be able to get some great insight into the situation. You will not see bands like this anymore. I think that this film is a must see, for everyone.

This documentary is simply amazing. I thought that the title of this documentary was ridiculous, but then I realized that it is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. Its a journey of a man's self-discovery. My name is Edward R. Murrow. I am a former ABC News political analyst. I have gone through some difficult times with my wife and the people I love. I'm proud to have served this country and that I could witness the rise of a man who was just on the brink of the Presidency. This documentary is truly eye-opening. This is why I really recommend this documentary. If you're wondering how I became a political analyst, watch this documentary and you'll be able to see how I got into it. Watch it!

I've always loved the movie, and I thought it was the best one. I was so disappointed when they decided to make a sequel, and they decided to do it in a way that they were not making it for the fans. I thought it was a great idea to make the movie that way. They should have made it the way it was supposed to be. I thought it was the most intelligent movie I've ever seen, and I think it's the best movie I've ever seen. I really hope they make the sequel, because I think it's going to be the best. I think it's the best movie I've ever seen. It's going to be a lot of fun. I'm so excited.

This documentary is about a group of people who were involved in the infamous Black Hawk Down incident in Somalia in 1993. I have to say that I enjoyed this documentary. The first part of the film tells you the story of the Black Hawk Down incident and the mission that was carried out by the U.S. Marines. The second part of the film tells the story of the Somali pirates and their motives. There is a lot of footage of the Somali pirates. They are very violent and very brutal. I felt that the Somali pirates were not really portrayed in a very positive light. It was a very depressing and depressing film. I felt that the film could have been edited a bit better. There are some very long and boring scenes. I felt that the film was extremely slow moving. I would recommend that you do not see this documentary. I felt that it was a very depressing film. I would not recommend this film.
