THE QUIET ONE offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at the highs and lows of the life and career of Bill Wyman, former founding member of the Rolling Stones and renaissance man of rock and roll. Against the odds Bill escaped a bleak future in post-war, working class London to find himself at the very centre of a musical and cultural revolution. As a Rolling Stone he embarked on record-breaking world tours, dealt with feuding band mates and befriended some of the world's most iconic musicians, actors, sportsmen and artists. Then, to people's amazement he walked away from it all to commit to a new family and to set about documenting and preserving the memory of the 'rock and roll revolution'. Since leaving the Stones Bill has toured the world with his all-star band the Rhythm Kings as well as exhibiting his renowned photography. A keen archaeologist, Bill acts as a historical consultant on film and documentary projects and has written nine books on a variety of subjects. Throughout his career Bill shot hours of unseen film footage, took thousands of photographs, collected a vast archive of memorabilia and kept a detailed diary of each and every single day. Watching this footage and hearing the stories is like going back in time and standing at Bill's shoulder, experiencing this privileged access at first hand. The film uses his huge archive as the catalyst for stories about Bill's experience of wartime poverty, his love of blues music, the rise of the Rolling Stones, the 1960s counter culture, exile in France, his 1970s super groups, 1980s excesses and his life's work documenting and preserving the memory of such an important period of cultural and musical history.

I have been a fan of Mick Jagger since his youth. In fact, I've been listening to the Rolling Stones when I was very young and a Mick Jagger CD was a staple of my collection. One of my early DJ mixes featuring Jagger and fellow X-factor producers John Jackson and Billy Powell has stood the test of time since then. Still, I can remember a time when this very talented performer and engineer with such a distinctive voice and musical tone could have been dismissed by the mainstream recording industry as a weirdo. That era was in the 1970s and 1980s when DJs like Nils and His Pianist were the standouts on the scene, but an almost equal number of rock and pop acts were slumming it out in the garage for money. And that was certainly the case for AEG's debut album 'The Best Of The Best' in 1973. Now, 32 years later, the rock group X-Factor have pulled off a remarkable comeback in this fantastic documentary which traces their beginnings back to their beginnings with one of their own (the late Alan McGee) and their development to the peak of popularity with their compilation album 'To Be The One' which was released in 2004. I have to admit, this might be a little bit of a stretch from this documentary's original idea of how the band began as a 'small band' and how they became a main stream band, but it is a well rounded story that will keep you engrossed all the way through. If you are a fan of rock and pop, you should definitely watch this documentary, especially as the X-Factor were such a main stream band as a result of their CD success. You may even find out a little about the group's rise to fame as well. The documentary does a good job in showing you the rise of rock and pop as well as how rock and pop music developed over the years. I can see how fans of rock and pop might find this documentary to be a little bit of a stretch as well, but that is definitely down to the band's uniqueness in the genre. Now, if you think that the X-Factor's "One Special Melody" had become too much, then you will certainly enjoy this documentary. AEG's tour in support of their CD is so spectacularly performed that it is hard to imagine anything better, but that is definitely down to the band's unique style. I was very impressed with this documentary, as it is quite different from the one you are used to, but if you are a rock and pop fan, you will definitely enjoy this film.

A beautiful and important film. I will say that there are some really interesting places in the film that I felt that needed to be better explored, such as the dream sequences, the interaction of music with the moments in which the two main characters in the film were singing in their first attempt at film singing. I also felt that the film could have had a stronger focus on the "real" people who were the real characters in the movie, and was less about what you have to take for granted about these characters. However, I think that the film was done in a good way that made it easy to connect with the characters and make connections with the music and the ideas that are presented. Also, I really enjoyed the focus on music, I think it was a really important part of the film and it makes you go back and think about the history of the songs, their evolution, how they got into and out of a society that still required musicians, etc. Overall, I think that this is a great film and I recommend that people should watch it.

This film has no beginning or ending. It just goes on forever. Each track is as good as the last and each is a personal favorite. The film has a strong dose of realism and a definite dark side. I enjoyed the film but only a few points. The soundtrack, the editing, and the amazing performances from the cast. The film itself is somewhat disturbing and the theme of addiction is hard to look at. The film could have been a little better but there is something about it that really works.

This film made me tear up. It was made in 1993, and it still has me laughing. I remember when I was very young, listening to the radio on a very old radio station in Norway, and I heard that a woman had died in a tragic accident, but I didn't know what to think about it. The film tells you a lot of things you might not know. It's a true story, and it really goes to show you that no matter what age you are, what you do, where you come from, there are still people that love you very much. And they will always love you, no matter what!

The Quiet One (2009) * (out of 4) A woman (Christina Ricci) is in a mental hospital after she is accused of murdering her husband. She is brought in to see the psychiatrist (Alan Arkin) who says she is insane. The psychiatrist has a theory that she is in fact the daughter of a man (Paul Reubens) who was her husband. This is a documentary that takes us on a journey through the mind of Christina Ricci. Ricci is in a lot of trouble with the law, and the documentary shows us what she is going through. The film is a little slow in places, but it's worth the time. Ricci is at her best when she is talking about her past. She talks about the murder, the abuse, and her problems with her mother (Hilary Swank). The documentary also has some great scenes with Ricci and her mother. The film also has some great music from The Stooges, which is a great soundtrack. The Quiet One is a good documentary that is worth seeing.

This film is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I think it's probably one of the most relevant of all time. My favorite part of this film is the first 20 minutes. Every line of the first 20 minutes is a must-see! I don't know why they don't release this on DVD, though. If you love music, films, or art, you have to see this. I hope they do. I think it's definitely a must-see. I give it a 9.0/10.

I have seen this documentary many times, and I still enjoy it. It is a bit different from other documentaries. The first 30 minutes are the best, showing the early stages of the band, and the start of the video shoot. The second half is the more personal, showing the band and the people that they have met along the way. The documentary is a bit slow in some places, but it is still worth watching. I especially enjoyed the interviews with John Lennon, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney. I also liked the documentary's soundtrack. The music is not only relevant to the band, but also to the people in the band. The songs are beautiful, and the music videos are also great. The documentary is definitely worth seeing.

The Quiet One (1999) focuses on the use of sound in films to create emotion and build character. Through interviews with a number of people who are considered to be movie sound men, we learn about the sound people who, over time, became as important and respected in Hollywood as those who had the vision to be the greatest sound technicians of their day. But to those who know little of this history, the story is not nearly as interesting or inspiring as it should be. The best part of this documentary is the people who are part of it and the way they have been treated by Hollywood over the past 50 years. Some of these men were not treated well and, in a way, did not have the dignity of their profession. In a way, they have become as revered as the people who had the vision to be the best sound men of the day. We learn about a number of well-known sound technicians who gave their time to the film industry and, in some cases, even had a role in the scriptwriting process. For example, Richard Fleischer, who was the sound man for the film "Lassie" and, later, the film "Saving Private Ryan", had a role in the scriptwriting of the famous Japanese kamikaze attack sequence in "Saving Private Ryan". Harry Manfredini, a pioneer of sound cinematography, and the sound person for the film "A Star is Born", told the story of how his background in film making helped him with his sound team for the "A Star is Born" film. Peter Segal, the sound director of the film "The Day the Earth Stood Still", who later became a sound engineer himself, gives us an insight into his life, his memories of working with people like Al Jolson, the great Count Orlok, and the director of photography, Otto Preminger. We learn about the working relationships that develop between sound men and their employers and between sound men and the directors of photography. And we also learn the stories of people like James Horner, the sound man for "Thelma and Louise", and Bert Lahr, the sound man for the classic "Stagecoach". All of these men, who worked with Spielberg and De Palma, are interviewed about their experiences and their personal stories. The most interesting interview is about the great sound man, Harry Manfredini, who was doing some of his work at Universal Studios. We learn how his mentor, Carl Gottlieb, mentored him. We learn how he is a living legend in sound. We also learn about the relationship between sound and color, especially the effects used in "Jaws". This documentary may make you want to learn more about the sound people of Hollywood. But, more importantly, it is an interesting look at the people who became legends in Hollywood and, at the same time, give us the inside story of how people became recognized and what motivated them to become a sound man. Overall, this is a very interesting documentary that gives us a great insight into the history of sound in film and, at the same time, a look into the people who created some of the most memorable films ever made.

Picking up where her documentary, Welcome to the Dollhouse, left off, director Laura C. Nelson, our hero from the start, has this movie to thank for bringing her career back on track after her move to Europe with her partner of 14 years to Austria. While she started a new job in Paris to further her career, the marriage fell apart. Fortunately for her, though, as her eyes began to fade, she found solace with Jim, a rock star who played the guitar and sang "Dude" on her videos. He bought a house, fell in love with her, and got married to her. Thus, she moved into the tiny apartment in Berlin, on an island that she was sure would only be hers. Along with her roommate of two years, she and Jim created "The Band." And it worked well. But things were not working well at home. He was stressed with the demands of his career, and she was unsure of her own career. To get back on track, he got a girlfriend who started to play music for him. "I have always had a friend like that," she said, "I think my husband was the only person who had a good relationship with her." She finally got a new job, and they were both back in Vienna to get married. As time passed, Jim got better jobs and fell in love with more people, including his current girlfriend, whom he had met while studying abroad in Mexico. In their small apartment in Vienna, they also made a rock band, which they performed at an international rock festival. She became pregnant, and moved to Paris to raise her son. Meanwhile, he and his girlfriend moved to Berlin. They started working on their film, which was finally finished on Christmas day of this year. And they had it released in December. But it was more than just getting the film out to the public. It was about their relationships and how they dealt with their separate worlds. While they were happy with their new lives, Jim and Laura were still struggling with their marriage. He was confused about whether he was married to her or just her friend. He was also still having doubts about whether he wanted a relationship with another woman. When they went to a movie together in Paris, he said he still thought he wanted to have a relationship with her. After all, she was his best friend. Jim is a journalist who has done some good work. He's proud of his work, but he doesn't want to be like the young generation. He feels the only way to tell the story is from a young person's perspective. She is a successful, white-haired musician who is a role model for many. He feels like a dinosaur in his own time. But she is as articulate as he is, and they both see things from different angles. But as the story of The Band is revealed, they find that they have many similarities. They were both high-school seniors in the 1970s, both in love with the same woman. They were both in a band, and both thought they could make it as a rock and roll band. And they both have been broke for so long that they have thought they couldn't be successful in life. Both of them were bored, and when they were able to have a couple of free hours, they would play rock and roll music and take care of their baby son. Both of them loved to travel, especially the trip to Japan, and they both love dancing and dancing. Both of them loved to be in Europe, and they loved to travel. Both of them also had to deal with things, like a car break-in,

This is a remarkable film that depicts the many moments and experiences of Andy Warhol, who is almost forgotten in his time. This is very much an album of Andy Warhol, not a documentary as many would have you believe. It is very often difficult to listen to a soundtrack of this caliber while you are actually watching a documentary film. And that is exactly what the soundtrack is, a soundtrack to the performance of Andy Warhol and his life and his music. But this is the thing that gives it its power. It isn't the soundtrack that is the best thing about this documentary, but the film itself. It is visually stunning, with stunning cinematography and excellent use of black and white in conjunction with the sepia tones. It is not the soundtrack or the performance of Andy Warhol that is the best thing about this documentary, but rather the brilliant use of the soundtrack and the film itself. And that is exactly what this film is about, this music. The soundtrack and the film are both very important to this documentary, and that is why I give this film a 9 out of 10.

I had heard about this film from my friend, who was a big fan of the film. So, I decided to check it out. I have to say, I was very impressed. It's a very good film. The music is great, the performances are great, and the story is interesting. It's not a "classic" of the genre, but it is very good. I recommend this film to anyone who likes a good story, music, or who enjoys a good film. This film is a must see.

I first saw this film when it came out and I am a fan of John Travolta. The film is actually a lot more technical than most biographies. The film goes back and forth between the main character, Matt Lee, and his band, The Beatles. One of the most interesting parts of the film is the power struggle within the group. Matt Lee had to give up his guitar playing and it was actually his brother, Tom Lee, who eventually replaced him. While he did give up his guitar playing he kept the band together and they continued to perform. The film is also really insightful in the fact that the Beatles were still friends to this day. This was as long as 30 years after the band broke up. It also shows that Travolta himself had a close relationship with The Beatles and he even played guitar for The Beatles in the Beatles 1964 "Love Me Do" album. Even after they broke up they continued to play together. There are many people in the film that have died but they are all, to this day, part of The Beatles.

Once upon a time, there was a fire extinguisher. I've heard this story many times in movies. It's an old idea, and you never see it explained in detail, and it's actually not that important. But that's what makes this film special. Michael Moore does a great job at explaining the story behind the fire extinguisher, so that you can learn from it and really care about the characters. The movie really comes together at the end when the fire extinguisher is confiscated. The police is trying to find who stole the extinguisher, and we're told that he took it for a 'night of fun', and the movie ends with a shot of a firefighter with a bottle of rum. We don't know what it was for, but it probably tasted bad. The movie is about the fire battalion and what they do. It's a mixture of riots, ganging up on a person, shootings, fire hydrant fights, and some interesting camera work, so it's really a great movie. If you have ever thought about a fire extinguisher, this is a great movie. It's good for kids and adults, and you never know what happens to your neighbor.

I like this movie a lot, as a huge Hans Zimmer fan I can say I like this a lot, as a big fan of Zimmer I can say I like this a lot. It's not quite the masterpiece that I hoped for, but is a great, entertaining documentary about one of the most beloved artists of our generation, who has a whole new perspective and is not that short of one. I could also enjoy a few musics from his early musical efforts that can be listened to and enjoyed on a few different levels. The two largest critics are to be expected, but I still found my heart warmed and my brain churning. I highly recommend it. * out of *

Here is a brief introduction to this documentary: It's about a player, the pioneer of surf, Don Lusk, who stayed true to his principles. He played out in the line of duty for the Army for 4 years, playing every possible instrument. Then came the first surfboards. And they showed the next wave. The new wave is the modern era. The men and women who surf and surfers with many levels of skills. The only thing that divides us is our imagination, and how we can feel like we're getting ahead of ourselves. And this film shows it in a beautiful way. It's an inspiring documentary. But for me, it also shows that a lot of people have the same feelings and expectations that Don Lusk had. And that we should all respect his legacy, and try to be as true to it as possible. That's the power of the film. I think it is truly a great film, with excellent content, great characters, excellent surf and some incredible footage. It's for anyone who loves surfing and any surf enthusiast. See it, share it with your friends.

I saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival and have just purchased the DVD. It is so much more than a movie. It is a journey of realization, especially for young people, and as a society. What are we going to do about music and learning to love it? This movie should be available on DVD in every country! It is based on the amazing memoir "Looking for the Other Man" by Glen Ford and his wife Doreen, it tells of how these two lost souls find each other. I loved this movie! The documentary style is absolutely beautiful, I wish the movies could be like this and still be effective. This documentary style has a timeless quality to it. It captures the essence of what it is to live a life as a musician and as an artist. This is a must see for all music lovers!

I'm a huge fan of the Beatles, and I'm not a big fan of Bono, so I had no idea what to expect when I saw this documentary. I was pleasantly surprised. This is an excellent film, well worth seeing. I especially liked the way it was filmed, with great shots of the original studio in Liverpool, and the music on the soundtrack. The editing is great, and the interviews with the people involved are also very interesting. It's an excellent film, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a love for the Beatles. It's a great documentary, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

It's hard to believe that a movie this good was made in the first place. I'm not saying it's a masterpiece, but it's definitely a step up from the usual 90's style of movies. The music, the cinematography, the story, the acting, the editing, and the editing are all superb. I don't know if it's the acting or the editing that made me love this movie, but I can't help but love it. I mean, I've been a fan of Nolte's since I was a child and I loved his performance in the movie, but I didn't really know what to think about him until I saw this movie. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about the whole movie. I had heard a lot of bad things about it, but I was really excited to see it. I'm glad that I gave it a chance. I loved it. The movie is very powerful. It has a message about the dangers of fame and the dangers of not being true to yourself. I think it's very powerful and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the subject matter.
