I am so sick and tired of hearing people whine about the evils of a few campus speech codes that no speech whatsoever is allowed. Yes, yes they say. It's all just "Islamophobia" and "BLOCKING FREE SPEECH." And how about the provocatively named Title IX Act? Oh come on, let's at least put some basic language into law that would protect those who have been horribly oppressed by their schools. Again. And, the current college campuses have always been a melting pot of cultures. They're people with a wide range of personalities and that's what I love about college. When I look at my roommate, the way she talks to me, the way she acts, the way she interacts with other people, it's so refreshing. In one word, I can't say enough about how wrong I am of our current law and its prevailing ideology. One of the students we had interviewed for this film, Miss Safra, was very outspoken and even said she believed in the protection of free speech. On the other hand, she also said she was speaking out for the victims of racial discrimination and that she was not upset about the harassment the speaker faced because she believes in equality. I think this is where most of the opinions come from, that she is a martyr for free speech. Most other students I have spoken to also agreed. This is a very important story about free speech in the school environment. We didn't know any of the students, so we couldn't judge their backgrounds, but I can tell you that the students in this film were real people and I enjoyed seeing their lives being portrayed. The students had different opinions on issues, but they all had a lot in common that we could relate to. I think there is a lot to be learned from this movie because this is the first movie to explore the topic that has come to be known as the college speech codes. It also is the first film to deal with the issue of college life that is now facing our generation, with the aging of the baby boomers, the flight to the suburbs, the lack of artistic creativity in our colleges, and many more things. I think we all need to take a step back and reevaluate what free speech means to us and what is healthy. And if a student's speech or expression is unpopular, what is free speech? Who is fighting for the freedom of speech? I think the most important message of this movie is how each of us should have our rights protected. You have the right to free speech to express your opinions and ideas, but how you are protected is different. Are you offended by someone speaking out against you? The media says that free speech is the most important right, and if you are offended by someone speaking out against you, or if you don't agree with someone's viewpoint, how do you not like that person and think they should not be part of your group? We are all different, and so is speech, and if someone is offended, how are we all supposed to know that? There are some sides to every argument and there should be tolerance for them. If we all had a little more tolerance for each other, people wouldn't have been afraid to speak their mind or to make others feel uncomfortable. We don't always agree, but this is part of the world we live in. We can't control everyone. And speaking of the students, they had their own opinions on many issues, but most of all, they were kind and helpful, especially Miss Safra. I believe they are becoming the new generation of people that we all dream of having in the future. I hope this movie helps, I really do.

I loved this documentary so much I watched it for a second time today. It's very moving and its really amazing that these people chose to record what happened to them, rather than face their demons and end it all. It doesn't feel like a documentary; it feels like a real interview, and the things they are talking about are so genuine and right on the mark. I have to say, I would highly recommend this documentary. It is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

I feel obliged to comment on this film because it so unfairly ruined for me, i would like to say, it's sad to see some of the teachers and peers who have been trying hard to bring these kids together can't see how pathetic it is that these kids should be brought together. The kids are treated with such disrespect and are so downtrodden that they want to give the speech to give out to their peers, when in reality the only speech they will ever get, is by their parents. Also, the teachers and school principals should be fired because they should be working the school, instead of slaving away behind closed doors with these poor kids and teaching them that hate is the ONLY way to deal with problems and that it's OK to put them in a separate class when they are out in public. Everyone should be ashamed of this situation. In the end, this film should have never been made.

Watching the internet from a feminist perspective, "Safe Spaces" is a brilliant film. The first part of the film shows how people respond to rape. The second part looks at the backlash against the feminist movement, which is clearly an attack on free speech and a good way to shut up those who disagree with the feminist view. There are many people who disagree with this viewpoint, which is a good thing. This film is a wonderful demonstration of the extreme in-fighting on the internet. It is a shame that people would actually be so desperate to shut others up and cause problems for them. All of this is not easy to get away with when you're trying to make a point.

Saw this documentary at the Chicago International Film Festival. It is an important and realistic look at the dangers of free speech and the First Amendment. I found it quite humorous and thought it was worth my time.

This is a very good documentary, well worth seeing. It makes you think about the world we live in. I especially liked the point that the movie made about the problems of "free speech", which I thought was important. I also felt that the fact that this movie did not include any "pro-censorship" message was important. I am glad that they didn't. We all live in a free society, which gives free speech and the right to bear arms. We also need to be able to say what we want to say. If the whole world were a "safe space", it would be different. We all have a right to express ourselves. However, when it comes to media, I found that this documentary did a very good job of showing how serious the issue is. That is the best part of the movie. It also showed that not all media are bad. Movies, for example, can make people understand things they otherwise wouldn't understand. I think it was a good job of trying to show all sides of the issue. It was also nice to see how far free speech goes. I personally think that the point that I'm making here was important. I do believe that the media has a place in society. It is a very important part of the modern society. However, I think that it should not be at the expense of having the right to bear arms. And, when it comes to free speech, I think it is important that it can not be silenced. The movie did not try to present a "left-wing" view of the media. It was just trying to show how powerful the media really is. It shows how the media today is more important than ever. I think the movie is very well done. If you like films like this, you should definitely see this.

Saw this film when it was first released in London. In a career spanning decades, there is very little I can say about this film that hasn't already been said. It has given me a new respect for the cinema. The issues raised are often overlooked in favour of "greater things". I can understand why so many people don't want to watch this film. It is a strong subject and perhaps has a 'unpleasant' feel about it. But, the courage of these young people, and the bravery of those who work at the site, and the serious problems they face, make this a worthwhile film. It should be viewed by all, as a warning of what can happen when a community is taken over by extreme voices, without proper representation. If you like documentaries, or just have a big appetite for films, see this one.

I found this documentary while I was doing some research for my upcoming doctoral dissertation. I decided to watch it because I had read some negative reviews and, though I do not like this sort of "gotcha" films, I was intrigued. I was not disappointed. The film consists of interviews with college students who have been exposed to extreme speech and behaviors from their peers. The film is conducted in a very naturalistic style, without condescension, and is focused on the interaction between students and teachers. The interviewees are not actors and we do not learn about their personalities. The students, while highly talented, are not celebrities. Some of the more vocal students, particularly the ones who have been exposed to the most extreme speech, are described as very sad. I found the ease of the interviewees' voices to be soothing and soothing. I find it helpful to watch these films because I do not want to feel like I have lost my humanity in the process of listening to these individuals. The films do not attempt to judge or attempt to educate viewers. They simply document a series of interviews that portray a wide range of viewpoints, some of which have little to no impact on the subjects, and which we might all benefit from hearing. I am very impressed with the way the filmmakers were able to interview these students without condescension, and also without trying to shape their opinions. Their opinions are not a point of contention and the interviews do not represent a biased point of view. Most of the students I spoke with were very happy with the way the film was conducted. The footage that is used is not manipulated to create an artificial atmosphere, and I found the results quite realistic. The film is not just about speech. It's about freedom of expression and the very nature of the human experience. The film makes it clear that the ability to speak is not a given and we are not all born with the capacity for speech. Speech is a choice, but it is not a free one. Many of the students I spoke with say that the presence of the teacher or the administrator can sometimes be intimidating, and that is certainly a reality. I've been in graduate school and that is true. There are times when students are angry and sometimes they do not know what to do with their anger. When that is the case, they may be tempted to take matters into their own hands and not report the incident. There are many students who may be tempted to talk about the incident with their friends and they might end up making a mistake. I'm sure there are students who would choose not to report the incident. The film is not about what the students say or do but what they do with what they say and do. This film is a way of educating those who will not choose to listen to the students' opinions. I would highly recommend this film to anyone, college or otherwise, and I hope the students who spoke to it get to hear what others think. It's an important issue and it is one that we should all take seriously.

Dr. Lyla Sadler is a small time feminist in San Francisco, and she is a victim of a brutal act by a group of local lesbians. The lesbian group has a lesbian sleepover in the woods, where the men are paid to rape them. The women are given a choice: stay in the woods, and get raped, or go back home to their families. The women stay, but Lyla must deal with her own demons, and make the best of what's left of her life. Sadler is believable as a girl who believes in a revolution, but who is consumed by the fear of what could happen if she returns home. The film is provocative and disturbing, but also contains humor, and an underlying message of hope for the women of this part of the country. Sadler's story is worth watching, and shows the everyday sexism that is ignored by mainstream culture, but is also real and dangerous.

This documentary takes a hard look at the battles raging in the hallowed halls of academia, and how some of the institutions are actually harming the students they serve. It's a fascinating look at the struggles of academics, administrators, and even the students themselves. It gives some insight into the rigors of college and the pressures to publish research that often results in more papers and a larger paper trail, all for the sake of an individual's career. It also reveals some of the students who fight these battles, and the other issues they face, in such a brutal fashion. It's a deep look at how the new generation of students are dealing with the demands of college. While some of the issues are raised to perfection, others are nearly beyond comprehension. For example, when one of the students discussed the stereotype of a poor student, which they see in their peers, their professor simply explained that the students actually seem to thrive in this environment. In other words, they are not poor, they are simply lazy. On the other hand, there are plenty of students that are merely over-aggressive, or simply out of control. The title of the documentary, "No Safe Space," is a clear indication that this is not about free speech, or about these students not having a safe space to vent. Rather, this is about their constant battle to prove that they are better than others, and that it is their duty to try to improve their school. These issues are so fundamental that they can't be separated from one another. No Safe Space, is a fascinating look at a difficult subject, and a great representation of the struggles of one particular school. This is a must-see documentary.

This movie is very well done. The whole topic is well covered and for people who aren't anti-immigration they will get it. But for people who are concerned about the current immigration policy and all the issues, this movie will be a shock. I think that people are going to hate it. But for those who have an open mind, they will get a lot out of it. The fact that they put a lot of thought into it shows that they are passionate about it. So I really believe that the movie was a good choice. There are some really good points in this movie, like the big problems that are coming to Europe and the problems with the whole refugee crisis. If you want to know the real truth about immigration and the refugees, go watch this movie. If you want to watch some good documentaries, go watch them. If you want to see the facts in a documentary, go watch it. If you want to see a documentary that isn't tied to the current political debate, go watch it. Overall, this is an excellent movie. It's a must watch.

I am a Meryl Streep fan, and it was one of my early inspirations to watch this documentary. Meryl and Michael have a well-documented history, but I could not imagine that Michael was a coward like he portrayed in the film. I was surprised to learn that he has attended a number of formal military training sessions, and knows the "war zone" perfectly. There was one instance when he heard what the enemy was saying, and he responded accordingly. He has a maturity beyond his years, and it is no wonder that he has been a constant presence in all of his films. As a former submariner, I can tell you that this is a necessary part of being in the military. In all, I found this documentary to be a wonderful portrayal of the hardships and joys of being a great director. In the documentary, Meryl is very real and very relatable. She has a unique voice, and her humorous commentary is a welcome addition. Although the film was filled with quotes from famous people, it was most remarkable that all of the quotes were from Meryl herself. She truly was an inspiration to all those who worked with her. I was left with a feeling of gratitude and peace, and I hope that others will take this opportunity to see what it's like to be in the military, and to see what all the sacrifices are like. The movie was very well-done, and will be appreciated by anyone who appreciates documentaries.

A very compelling documentary about the issues that high school students face today. Whether it's sexual harassment, bullying, or peer pressure, this film demonstrates that we all have an important role to play in shaping our society. The focus of this documentary is on the conversation surrounding "No Safe Spaces," a movement that began in response to a student's death at a school event. This movement has spread to hundreds of schools across the country, and we are witnessing the effect of it on the students at this high school. We're not just talking about a single incident. A survey at this school shows that 60% of students feel they have been subject to any form of harassment at school, and 70% feel they have been the target of any form of bullying, ranging from verbal abuse to physical violence. This documentary does a great job of explaining the psychology of the issue. Some have dismissed this film as a case of social justice warriors trying to "fix" this problem, but I think that's just being petty. This documentary also covers the education process, and what each student is facing. This is definitely one of those documentaries that is difficult to watch at times. There are a lot of disturbing incidents in this documentary, but there is a clear purpose in showing the effect this has on the students. I hope that everyone will watch this documentary. It is definitely an eye-opener.

This film is about a new national service called National Youth Service. It's a voluntary service, which is voluntary for the purposes of applying for a pension. The service starts in 2012. And it's run by a charity organisation called Next Generation, which is run by Yvette Fielding. Yvette Fielding is a BBC actor, and she was a popular character on British soap operas. She is also very experienced and very good at what she does. Now she runs Next Generation. So the film shows how the service is run, with lots of interviews and lots of footage of people being involved in the service. I really enjoyed the way the film was edited. They showed lots of really good clips, which really helped us understand what the service is about. The film also had lots of interviews with people who were involved in the service, from nurses and teachers to students and parents. They were all really nice to talk to. The film also has lots of information about the service and lots of information about Yvette Fielding. And it shows lots of really good clips of her. It also has lots of music from the service, and lots of interviews from Yvette Fielding. It's good stuff. It's worth watching. You might enjoy it.

This film goes deep into the dark depths of the adult entertainment industry. It starts off with a great overview of the problems in the industry, but ends on a depressing note. It has some very interesting interviews with people who have gone through the industry and found it to be stressful and very depressing. It has some very real scenes and real interviews that make you want to cry. The biggest problem with this documentary is that it is filled with so many interviews that it is hard to keep up with all of them. I was bored at some points and did not really have time to digest all of them. The only way to do this would be to watch them all in order. It is so hard to explain and is hard to find. One thing is for sure: this film is very very important to the adult industry. It is a must see for all those that are fans of the industry or who have gone through it themselves. It is definitely worth a watch. I give this film an 8 out of 10.

This is a great film and a must see for all educators in the history of film. I don't have a lot of issues with the film, but there is a lot that needs to be addressed, and as I said before, the film needs to be more concise. I also think the movie could have been shorter and could have been more accurate. The camera work was amazing, and I would definitely recommend seeing it. The way the film was narrated was also great, and I am very surprised that this movie was not more successful.
