A sumptuous Sundance doc depicting the Long Island birthplace of stock car racing where only one track remains. Located on prime real estate, the real tors are circling. The property is worth millions and only the love and integrity of the track's community and elderly owners keep the bulldozers at bay. Stunning cinematography immerses us in the intimate world of grassroots racing, at a time when its future is in the balance. Can this great blue collar American pastime survive?

This film has the capacity to capture the love and passion of the late great Fred Kreig, as well as the inspiration and spirit of the sport of motocross. The film was inspired by the efforts of Fred Kreig's family and friends, as well as the players of Motocross Grand Prix. Fred Kreig was a legend and I have a strong feeling that this film will change people's perception of motocross. I hope that they will see this film, and hopefully that it will inspire them to run more. This film is not only a love story, it is also a celebration of the sport of motocross, and the memory of Fred Kreig.

E.B. White might be a womanizer, but she could really kick it with a guy. This documentary on her racing career tells us about how she came to be the female champion at the age of 15. This is pretty much the true story of how the big stars came to be. For starters, it tells us about her adventures in the film industry. It's good to know that when you're a successful filmmaker that you can actually go to dinner with Jennifer Connelly and not have to pay a cent. So, yeah. That's a pretty cool fact. You have to love her. She's a hottie, and she's not just any hottie. She's pretty, she's smart, and she's actually pretty sexy. The people involved in this documentary tell us that she really did her research into how to be a pretty, intelligent, and confident actress. They also tell us that she actually did research on that and that she read the kind, normal people's minds. She does an interview with Dan Rather, who goes to great lengths to explain to her how to be confident and a good actress. His answers are great. The last interview is with Ronda Rousey, who is a great actor and an even better actress. She also talks about the research she did and how to be a good actress. Rousey is really nice, and I think that she knows she's a pretty, intelligent, and confident girl. The interview with her is so sweet and there's really no need to write about it. After the film, she talks to Connelly and Connelly talks to her. The film's biggest problem is that it's a very limited film. It's only about one half an hour long. I think that's why it's not as good as it could have been. Also, it doesn't tell us as much about Connelly, Rousey, and Connelly's family. There's really not that much. The other problem with the film is that it's pretty cheesy. Most of the film is just White and Connelly talking about how they got into acting. They explain their intentions and they explain that they're having a bad day, but that they're not going to change. I think that's the main problem with the film. There are a lot of cringe moments in the film. White also goes on a rant that basically says she hates the word genius. The movie also talks about her just being a girl. When you're a girl, you have to let yourself do whatever you want and you're really not a girl, you're just a girl. If you want to be a girl, you need to let yourself be a girl. I think that's why I'm not very fond of this film. You can tell that the filmmakers just wanted to make a good documentary about Connelly and White. The documentary is also kind of boring. There are only two interviews, and the rest is talk about the real-life relationships of Connelly, White, and Rousey. The documentary might be good for those people who are fans of Connelly, Rousey, and Connelly's family, but I think that if you're just a fan of them, you'll probably be bored.

I was lucky enough to see the film at a premier in Pittsburgh. I've been a fan of Craig and Joseph for years and this was their first film together. They have a great chemistry and it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement of what could be. I'll admit I was not in the mood to watch the film with my husband, but my son, who is a professional golfer, was. I was more interested in the story of the golfers than the movie itself. I enjoyed it and think it's a great representation of what golf is all about. I've never seen any golfers make such a bold statement. The difference between a golf pro and a regular person is what makes them a pro. I think it's a very realistic representation of what's involved in the sport. It shows that it's not just about hitting a shot and making a birdie, but about being a great golfer and what you can do to be the best. The camera angles are great and the story is compelling. It's hard to not be swept up in the excitement of what could be and how much the sport has changed in the past 40 years. It's a great look at the game of golf and the emotions that come with it.

This documentary was made for the BBC, and its an interesting, emotional, and compelling story about the men that created the one of the most important and historic achievements of the sport of karting. The film is made with a lot of technical details and interviews with people that were involved in the creation of this historic event. The film is fairly well made and I can't think of many things that I would change in this documentary. The film's main flaw is that it leaves out a lot of information. For example, the documentary never really addresses the controversy that was surrounding the death of Eddie Irvine. I understand that the documentary wants to focus on the racing and the results, but it's a bit disappointing to see that there is only a single interview with the race driver's family and the other interviews are from people that were not involved in the event. I also feel that the documentary has a certain bias toward the drivers that they wanted to focus on. There is no mention of what caused the death of Eddie Irvine. I know that this is due to the fact that it's a documentary and there's no way that anyone could know what caused Irvine's death, but it's a bit strange that they're not talking about that. Overall, the film is a good documentary that is well made and well put together. I think that the documentary would be better suited for the fans of the sport and not the racers. I think that the documentary would have been better if it focused on the racing rather than the people involved in the event.

It has to be said: When I found out about this film, I was completely underwhelmed. I didn't even know it existed. Until now. I'm a big huge fan of cycling and enjoy watching all the great racing clips, which I found to be a real treat to watch. But until now, I had never known about this film. I didn't even know the race, but then I heard about it, and I had to see it. I am totally impressed. It was really great to see these professional riders talking and explaining what they felt, and it was great to see how they felt about it. It was good to see that there was actually no bias to these guys, or they didn't seem to care that much about what the people on the other side of the road thought. I never would have thought that this could be a fantastic documentary about professional cyclists. But it really was, and I can't wait to see the other parts. I'm really looking forward to it!

Watched this documentary a while back. The first 45 minutes or so were a fairly good summary of what it is that makes the athlete (or non athlete) successful. It's a good summary and I recommend you watch this if you're a sports fan. But then, it seems to get 'lost' and move onto other subjects, with little context and even less background. I found it very frustrating. Then it devolves into some of the most idiotic commentary I've heard. The last 15 minutes was almost comic. Everything that could have gone wrong was. It seems as if nothing happens in this film. I saw it running in theaters, and it was filmed for over two hours, so that's the question. Was the movie a slasher film? I really hope not, because the film is quite touching and it actually demonstrates how difficult it is to turn an average person into an elite athlete. In the last few years, there have been a few films that feature an athlete and it's like watching them run through their paces, barely able to breathe. This one is not like that. It's almost as if the writer had absolutely no clue what he was doing. It was as if he was trying to write a movie about a gold medalist. I've read about the success stories of Michael Phelps, the Jim Nantz broadcasting career of George Foreman and the stats of gold medals won and silver medals won, but this documentary has absolutely no basis or conclusion. It was utterly a failure.

The very fact that they are now attacking each other over the real incident in this film would suggest to me that perhaps they are now at war. It is their new movie about them. In fact, what happened is clearly depicted in the film. For these people to make a big deal about this incident in my opinion is very offensive. The cameraman did a fine job with the footage. Yes, it's a documentary, but it's more than that. I saw this in September, and I actually knew the people involved. I never was in any way the target of any of the attacks. The black guy told me it wasn't worth me telling the story, he just wanted to have a good time. I have two hours left of my life I will never get back. That man will have a chance at redemption, and I do not think I am going to be the one to forgive him. I feel bad for him, I will never forgive myself for that. I truly believe that the charges against the black man in this case are incorrect. He did not intentionally run a man over. The man who hit him was driving about 100 miles an hour and, in my opinion, would not have been able to make it through the road the way he did without a serious injury. This incident is not about race, it is about ignorance and fear. And it is wrong for these people to use this incident to promote their own agendas.

I have not yet had the opportunity to watch the movie, but based on what I have read it will be excellent. I found the movie to be excellent and I recommend it to everyone. Not much is known about the three of them but they are extremely gifted runners. Their old world is over. The guy who passed away was a great runner and is now a coach in the States. The guy that has a slightly higher pace who gave the greatest performance was a running teacher in England. I felt as though it was very important to leave a little time between the movie and then have the movie go on and on to show how the three of them are doing now. The fans of the movie seem to have a good amount of knowledge of their age group and the importance of being an excellent runner. One viewer even said that he was a student of the three. One thing that makes this movie very interesting is that they were old friends. I do not think they are angry, they are more sad. They need to be happy. After seeing the movie I would say that it is probably the best documentary movie that I have seen. I hope that there will be another one that tells more of the story. It is sad to think that if you are a fan of the 3 of them you will not be happy with their performance. They have given us so much with their performances and I think that the movie does not show enough of the positive impact that they have had on so many people. Hopefully they will not retire from competition. It is unfortunate that they did not retire from competition. I am now a fan of the 3 of them. I would also like to know more about what their past was, what motivated them to become great and what motivated them to do their best in this sport. I know that they have a sense of having to be better and that motivates them to give so much of themselves. I hope that they retire after their last race. I know that I will watch it again.

The Last Race is a film about the White House, and the times the film takes place. It is as good as it gets for the type of documentary you are watching, it features the best sports documentaries around and actually told me things I didn't know. The movie is so realistic you will feel like you are part of the action. It shows the injustices of society and how people view sports. It also shows how much the Presidents and the media loves the sport. The film shows how sports is more than just a sport and it shows how we can get even closer to people on our lives who have died. The best part of the film is the performance of Sean Bean, he gives a beautiful and moving performance, he tells the story of the White House and the times of the President. The film is slow and it is very realistic, this was how I felt most of the time, but it is a very good film. The last race is where we get to see some of the most amazing football action that I have ever seen. Overall, this was a good documentary. I give it an 8/10. This is definitely not a great film, but it is a very good film. If you are looking for a good sports documentary, go see it. If you want a good sports documentary, go see this one.

I love this movie. I think that Mike Tyson is an amazing athlete and I think that some people in the world just don't know the truth. They are just looking for a fight, that's all, and that's what they'll get. Mike Tyson is very talented athlete. He has a very high IQ and he knows how to play the game. If you are going to watch this movie, you will want to see him in the ring! You will see him and his amazing talent. I recommend that you see this movie because you will learn some interesting things about Mike Tyson.

This is an essential look into the life of Christian Horner, the driver for Toyota's first racing team. It is a look into Horner's early career, where he quickly became famous, and at the same time was taking a young man's life. It is also a look into his accident, and also his race career. We get to see the emotional life of the driver, and also his obsession with "the car". All of it is well put together, and we get to hear from Horner himself. The racing scene is great, and the last 30 minutes are pretty emotional. I'm sure many fans of racing will appreciate this documentary. I was surprised to see many comments on this being a "Christian" film. It was not meant to be. It is not the one that Christian was expected to be, but the honest look at the driver and the team that he worked with.

First, I don't really like the video clip. I think that it doesn't give the whole story very well. It also looks like the creators had a good idea to show this documentary on a car racing channel. I think that the movie wasn't good at all and I didn't like it. They used some old videos and some old footage but it didn't help much. I think that this should have been something more new and different and give the story more. The amount of knowledge and facts that I had is a little bit too much for this type of a movie. The truth is, I never really cared much about the whole "Race of Death". I don't even know what I was interested about it. I don't know why I even watched it in the first place. I didn't even cared about the Car and the whole idea of it. The little bit of knowledge and the facts that I've been given are enough for me. The rest was just that nothing much.

This documentary is not just about the 100th Marnie film, as some other critics have stated. Marnie's life may have been interesting for some but it was not historically relevant for others. The film is not trying to teach us anything we don't already know. We just want to see the beauty in it. The film shows us the 50's and 60's on the most aesthetic of level. The pictures speak for themselves. The movie was a tear-jerker for a little while and an insightful look back at an era of film history. This documentary is not just about Marnie's legacy but about the golden era of the film industry. The music is a treasure. The acting is a treasure. The cinematography is a treasure. And the sets are a treasure. There is never a dull moment in this film. There is a level of beauty and understanding in everything that was involved with Marnie being in the film.

This is a great documentary, it's not necessarily one of the greatest, but it's very interesting, and very well made. The movie, directed by Carl Dix and Jeremy Irons, is a biography of the iconic horse Bob Geer, which at the time of filming, had a real big appeal, as many people believed he was the best horse in the world. The movie tells how he went from being the heart and soul of a large farm, to a top contender for the title, and it also tells how he moved up in the world, becoming a revered figure for all. It's an interesting, almost philosophical look at this horse, who really was not the best horse in the world. There were flaws, of course, but they do come out in the movie, and they're fairly few and far between. That being said, it's a fascinating look at the man and his career. The acting is great. The story, though not particularly exciting, is well told. It's well worth a watch.

I've always been fascinated by what happens when an amateur team reaches the biggest race in their country. This documentary will definitely make you excited to go to the race. One of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I highly recommend this documentary.
