I loved this documentary. It is an excellent and very emotional story of the event. I was moved by the stories of the people that went through it and the people that survived it. The documentary is very interesting and well made. It is a great film to watch over and over. I would recommend this to anyone who loves history and wants to learn more about the event.

I've been in a few "right-wing" music videos. The end result of that is a really bad film, but that's part of the joy of it. So, my reaction to this one was, "How bad can it be?" Well, I've seen the video about three times, and I've laughed out loud at some of the jokes. But the best jokes, I think, are those in which the movie-goer just has to laugh out loud. The trailer was a big improvement over most of the other videos. My favorite scene in the whole film, though, is a six-minute long interview with Bill Clinton, as a fan of his band. It's hilarious. In fact, I might be a little too lenient with this one, because, aside from that scene, it's almost all pretty dull. But the worst thing about it is that the rest of it is just really, really lame. But I'm not going to give that away. I'm just going to say that, if you don't mind some bad acting and some poor jokes, you'll probably be OK with this one.

I came to this documentary expecting to see a documentary about how the Grateful Dead could be considered a musical influence of the hippie movement. I was prepared to see a celebration of the band, perhaps, a history of the band. And yet, the film quickly reveals the band's fractured nature and struggles with self-loathing, addiction and family issues. What I found was an exploration of the band's unique musical and personal characteristics, but also the personal pain of the band. The story of the band is a fictionalized one. This was a fascinating film. If you're looking for a documentary about the band, the way their music works, the individuals involved, this film won't be your cup of tea. But if you're looking for an intimate portrait of the band, a history of the band, and a history of how the band was formed, you will find it here. This is the kind of film that shows what the Grateful Dead were, what they were about and the musical and personal characteristics that made them such a powerful force in rock history.

Paul Robeson's "Paul Robeson's Blues" from his documentary, Paul Robeson: Blues. I loved this film. It is a wonderful look into Paul Robeson's life and work and he has a great presence in this film. I also liked the fact that Robeson's voice was not dubbed in this film, but it was still great to hear him sing. I also enjoyed seeing some of the footage from the era of the concert, which is rare and makes this documentary worth watching.

The riot at the 1968 Summer of Love at Berkeley was a symbolic event in American history. Many things happened that day. More importantly, the student demonstrators created the world we now know. The documentary, which was made a few years after the event, is a look back at that day. It does not dwell on the event, but instead on the students who organized it, the violence and deaths, and the student activists who came to be known as the Free Speech Movement. The film covers a lot of ground, including interviews with Berkeley students, administrators, and the police. It also shows scenes from the rally, as well as footage from the riots. Most of the film is as violent as you can get. Some of the riot footage is not very well done. Most of it is just grainy and blurry. The film is actually very interesting, as the first half of the film is not as well done as the second half. You see more footage of the riot, but that is a good thing, because the second half of the film is better. The film also covers the underground movement that was part of the movement, including a lot of footage from the Free Speech Movement itself. The film has a good length, and a great deal of information on the events of 1968. The film does not have the best production value. Some of the editing and editing is very poor, especially when the students are interviewed. It is a little hard to follow sometimes, and there are some other minor flaws. The movie is very informative, but a little bit slow at times. Overall, it is a good documentary that covers a lot of ground. It is worth seeing. 8/10

I loved this documentary, so much so I had to see it again. It was well done and informative. It was a great way to get a feel for the generation that came of age during the 70's and 80's. The history is discussed and the people interviewed were all at one time. These are the people who were involved in the music scene. It's one thing to just hear about it, but the way they were interviewed were so well done and they brought it to life. The acting was great and I think it showed the talent of the actors. I also think that the way the movie was shown made it more realistic. The music was great, and I didn't think it was very controversial at all. The way the music was presented and the way it was mentioned made it more real. Overall, I loved the documentary, and I highly recommend it.

I have a couple of quibbles with this film. The first is that the cinematography is a little bit rough around the edges. The second is that the editing is a bit choppy. I think they needed to get a lot of the footage from a video camera and stitch it together. It was kind of cool to see the sets, props, costumes and extras come together in the same shot. Overall, this is a really interesting look at the 40th anniversary of one of the great rock bands of all time. I'm curious to see what they do next.

This documentary is based on a book by the same name. It is about the music and the event. It is a great film, but if you are not familiar with the event, it may be hard to understand. The film shows a lot of footage from the event, but not all of it. Some of the footage is from the police, the bands, the press, and even the parents of the victims. The film also shows interviews with people who were there, including people who were in the police and bands that played. It is a good documentary, but if you are not familiar with the event, it may be hard to understand. If you have seen the documentary, I recommend it. It is an excellent film.

After reading other comments, I can only say that this movie is amazing. I am one of the few people who knew about the true event and so my experience of seeing this movie was like being there. It is hard to explain how much this movie means to me. I grew up in Texas, and this movie was one of the things that brought me to tears. I hope the director of the documentary makes a movie about the original festival, and I hope he gets the chance to do it. As someone who was there and was just a kid at the time, it was very real. I remember watching a police car pull up to a camp, and the police man telling everyone to get out of their tents. I was in awe. I was only 12, and it was the first time that I had ever seen a police officer in real life. I could see him walking to the camp in his t-shirt, and I could see that he was standing right in front of the camp. He looked like he was like a real man. It was amazing. I am so happy that he was able to make this movie. He should get the opportunity to do another movie about the festival.

This is a very interesting documentary that takes us to a lot of different places and places in the world. We get to see the performances of the performers, the music, the stories, the environment, the music, the story of the people, and a lot of other things. The documentary is very well done, and it's interesting to see how different cultures and different people have been influenced by the music of the 70's. It's also interesting to see how different cultures have been influenced by different aspects of the music. I think that this is one of the best documentaries that I have ever seen, and I would recommend it to anyone.

With a powerful and deep look at the pivotal event of '68, the film follows the personal, cultural, and political struggles of the activists as they try to deal with the crisis and the fate of the young activists themselves. The images are both inspiring and heartbreaking, as they recall the historic events in a moving and insightful way. The documentary features interviews with key figures from the day and shows footage from the era that captures the film's message. The ending is an intense and emotional one, that is absolutely relevant to the current moment.

Having seen the first 20 minutes of this documentary I couldn't wait to see it. I'm glad I didn't have to wait too long. It is a film that should not be missed. Even if you are not a hippie, this film will inform you about what the hippies went through. For those that are fans of the hippies and are not yet familiar with this time period, you will have a very different perspective on what the hippies went through. And if you are not a hippie or have not yet seen this documentary, you will find a lot of other things to make you think. If you do not like documentaries, then this one will be a complete waste of time.

I watched this documentary in the original version, but I believe the content was very relevant to the director's role. I thought the documentary was very useful in presenting the famous music and life of the day. I thought it was a very accurate depiction of the music. The director's role was very important in the film, since he is able to convey the documentary's message without the use of voice-overs. I thought it was very important that he made a conscious effort to play the music in the video. The music used was the real thing and was appropriate for the time. I think it was a great film, and I hope it is shown more often.

I attended a screening of this film at the Rotterdam Film Festival. There was a lot of good information about the history and the current problems of the festival. It was also very informative about how different generations have felt about the festival and the era in which it came about. This film will not have the same impact on the film buffs who are looking for a story about a specific person or group of people. The other films will not be nearly as intense and thought provoking. But this film does have a good message, which is that if we are honest with each other about what is happening in our world, we can solve the problems we are facing. This is definitely a good film and I encourage anyone to see it.

I am a big fan of the 60's and early 70's and this documentary is a must-see. I think it is a shame that it was never released in the US. It's hard to believe that it was released here in the States. I am sure that the people who made this documentary were motivated by a love for the music and a love for the era and it shows. I can't say enough about this documentary. It is a must-see.

I had never heard of the events of the 60's until I watched this documentary. I thought it was great and informative. The documentary was interesting to see how the events of the 60's were changed and how the younger generation is trying to change it's history. The younger generation of people in this documentary did a great job at showing that there is more to this than just the 60's. I think it's a great film and I hope more people see it. I think the older generation is trying to change it's history to fit the younger generation's view of what happened. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to learn more about the 60's. It's definitely a great documentary.
