When filmmaker and investigative journalist Frances Causey, a daughter of the South, set out to explore the continuing racial divisions in the US, what she discovered was that the politics of slavery didn't end with the Civil War. In an astonishingly candid look at the United States' original sin, The Long Shadow traces slavery's history from America's founding up through its insidious ties to racism today.

I was impressed by this documentary. I don't usually like documentaries that are overly long, but this was a great one. The film has a lot of useful information, and is very well edited. It was also very entertaining, and the narration was spot on. I found myself wanting to see more of the film, and I am glad I saw it. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the filmmaker's work.

This documentary on the death of Jim Morrison at the age of 27 was made in the wake of the death of Eric Clapton. While Clapton died after an extremely public and dramatic funeral, Morrison was still alive and well and was granted permission to attend the funeral, which was attended by hundreds of people. I have to say, though, that I found this film to be very disappointing. It was incredibly low-key, and while I respect that this is not a documentary, the overall feel was one of a documentary done by a celebrity with a larger-than-life personality and a desire to share the private moments of his life with the world. And although the film did provide some insight into the pain and struggle of being in the spotlight, it also completely failed to explain what it was that made Morrison such an enigmatic character. He was certainly not a lovable character. Morrison's death was obviously devastating, but I feel like there were too many other important questions that were left unanswered. Did he have a good life? What were his motivations? What did he do to his bandmates and friends? I also felt that the film never touched on the way his music impacted people's lives, as well as his personal life. I also felt like the way that Morrison's life was portrayed in the film was far too sanitized and simplistic, with little insight into his personal life. While I would certainly say that Morrison was a fascinating and fascinating personality, it's hard to say that he was a particularly interesting person. I don't think that he had a good life. I think that the way that he lived his life was more than a bit off-putting. It seemed as if the film focused too much on him and his music, and not enough on the struggles he faced. And although it's hard to look at this film as a comprehensive look at his life, it was still interesting enough to make me want to check it out. But in the end, it was still disappointing. I would recommend this film to those who want to know more about Morrison, but not to those who want to see a documentary on his life. It was a disappointment.

This is a really great movie about the British Invasion of the United States. It really is a story of how America was changed by the British. And how the British did it with "British Style". I highly recommend it.

This film is amazing! It is a very personal look at a man who was sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit. It's fascinating to see the jury that delivered the verdict and the interviewees who were there that day. I have read that the film is disturbing, but it isn't. It is very informative, and it is very sad to see that this man is going to spend the rest of his life in prison. However, I believe that this film is important. It is a very sad story and it shows what a man can do to a family, and how a man can be manipulated. I would recommend this film to anyone who has a child that has been convicted of a crime and wants to know what is going on in their home.

I saw this documentary as part of the "Pioneer's Path" program on the History Channel. I'm glad I saw it, because it is a very interesting look at the American Indian, especially since I am American Indian and the main subject of this documentary is the "Long Shadow" of the Native Americans. The story of the American Indian, and especially the "Long Shadow", is a great subject to explore and discuss. This documentary was great, because the producers were very attentive to detail, and not just throwing in random facts that might interest some people. There was a lot of history to tell, and the producers took care to only show the history that would interest people. I think this is a great documentary for anyone who is interested in the history of the American Indians, and especially the history of the "Long Shadow".

A documentary on the Long Shadow, a famous portrait painter who died in a freak accident in 1885. It's a real trip down memory lane, to the day he died, his family's grief, and his artistic legacy. This is not a portrait of the artist, but a look into the people he was closest to, the people who loved him the most. Some of the people interviewed are his children, the wife of his first wife, the painter's nephew, the painter's parents, and the painter's brother. The film is a collection of many people's recollections of the artist, some of the most important of which are the portraits painted of the artist, and the painting itself. Some of the most interesting people interviewed are his children. They talk about his childhood, his father, and the painter's family. His son talks about the painter's youth, and his mother talks about the painter's wife. His niece talks about his mother's death. The film is a fascinating look into the artist's life, and the people who loved him the most. It is a great film, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves art. I rated it a 7, but I rate it a 7/10.

For the majority of viewers, "The Long Shadow" is a very good movie. The performances are very good and it is full of interesting characters and stories. It's hard to not get lost in it's immensity. The problem is that you get lost in the immensity of it all. You get lost in the big stories and the small stories and it becomes a very large movie. So many stories and little stories that it becomes a bit hard to stay focused on them all. It's a really good movie that just doesn't have the ability to hold the attention of an audience for a whole two hours. This is not a movie for people who are easily distracted and who can't make their heads get the line of the movie. I would recommend it to people who want to watch a really good movie that doesn't try to be everything. "The Long Shadow" is a good movie that just doesn't quite get the attention it deserves. I would recommend it to people who are able to stay focused and who enjoy a good movie that doesn't try to be everything.

The Long Shadow is a documentary that chronicles the lives of the actors and actresses who worked on the original Star Wars trilogy. These women were not stars, but they were not victims either. They were the women who were given the opportunity to bring their passion to the screen. The film focuses on the actresses and their experiences in the film industry, and in their personal lives. It is an inspiring film that will change your perspective on how important it is to pursue your dreams. The film is written by the director of the film, Carrie Fisher, and features interviews with the actresses and their friends, family, and co-workers. I will admit I am a fan of the Star Wars series and I have always loved the idea of bringing the characters to life, but I never imagined what it would be like to be a part of such a long and rich career. The women in the film have chosen their careers not only because of their passion, but because of the chance to make a difference in a different way. Carrie Fisher talks about her life and her experiences working on the Star Wars films, and how she took a very personal approach to the film. I was very moved by this film and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in this kind of work.

A lot of these films don't make sense, but this one does. The acting is terrible, the editing is horrid and the camera work is awful. But the people who did make this film are very talented and I am sure that they would make a great documentary. This film shows the path that this girl took to make it to where she is today. It shows the events that happened to her after she left her abusive father. The film also tells the story of her family and how she went from the dark and scary streets of Mexico to the bright and bright life of America. It also tells the story of her grandmother and how she helped her to overcome her demons. It also shows the transition from a girl to a woman and how she became a mother and how she became a grandmother. Overall, it is a good film, but it doesn't have much of a plot. I don't recommend this film to anyone.
