Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism--a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club's hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.

I think that this film is the best that I have ever seen about the punk scene in America in the late 60's and early 70's. There is a great deal of documentaries about punk rock, but this is the first documentary that was made about the early days of punk. It is quite sad that punk has been considered a marginal, underground movement in this country, when the truth is that it is a vital movement, and one that I believe has had a profound impact on the culture in the world today. It is also interesting to see the history of the music and the musicians that played in the scene. I think that the film is very accurate, with some great footage and music. I highly recommend this film for all to see.

A great documentary. It was mostly about the history of the music and film genres in the 80s, but the film does also touch on the relevance of it all in the 21st century. It's a very interesting look at the origins of the music industry and how the people that created it and influenced it, have all become part of the 'rock and roll' culture. The interviews with many of the major figures in the music industry are very entertaining and interesting. There are also some great clips from the films that are included and the film really gives you a good feel of what it was like to be a rock and roll star back in the 80s and 90s.

Very well shot and narrated, though I could not agree with most of the opinions expressed here. And that said, I still think this is a great documentary. It has everything: interviews with people involved in the story (including Bob Dylan), and the interviews of the actors in the film. I think there are so many things that could be explained here: the criticism of the films "witty" dialog, the large number of film critics who hated it, the criticisms of the "horror" of the subject matter, the long-standing tradition of "whitewashing" in the industry, the deep-rooted tradition of the "whitewashing" of American film-making, etc. I don't know if any of these things are enough to adequately explain the "failure" of the film, but there's no doubt that it's important to understand this "failure" to know how much you should be critical of the film. If you are critical of the film, you're critical of yourself. The problem is that it's important to know what kind of movie you like. Is it a drama about a man with schizophrenia who gets "cured" by his wife? Is it a drama about a woman who discovers that her husband has schizophrenia? If so, you might like it, but you're also critical of yourself. If you're critical of the film, you're critical of your own judgment. This film does well in both cases. The film is not flawless, but it's a really good film. I do not think the film is "a masterpiece". It's a really good documentary, but not "a masterpiece". I do think that the film is very good and has good value, but I don't think it's "a masterpiece".

The very talented John Waters returns with a superb documentary about the cult classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Filmed in a small rural town, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the story of a couple of young teenagers, who go to a cabin in the woods where they find a horrifying secret. You will see some of the most gruesome scenes in horror history. This film has the audience on the edge of their seats from the beginning to the end. It has some great interviews with the cast and crew and you will hear how they started to believe that this film is going to be something special. It is a shame that this film has not had a home release because it could have been such a great film. The film was actually shot on a shoestring budget but I think that was a good thing because it allowed the actors and crew to make this film what it was. John Waters was one of the most talented filmmakers in the history of cinema. He is truly one of the greatest. I loved this film and I am a huge fan of the original film and I believe this is the best version ever. If you haven't seen it, you have to!

Before I begin my review, I would like to say that I was a huge fan of the original movie, I was a fan of the first '50s film and even though this film doesn't follow the original very closely, I still enjoyed it. However, when I heard that the makers of this film were going to recreate the movie with a whole new cast and crew, I couldn't wait to see it. I can't say that I was disappointed. The film is a good mix of old and new. There are a lot of great scenes and a few of the more dramatic scenes seem to be missing. I think that the story has been simplified and I can't help but feel that the film makers could have done a lot more with it. However, I also feel that the film makers did a good job in recreating the film. The film is almost a time travel film in the sense that it is not only set in the 50s but the old characters are also shown in their younger years. However, this is not a film about time travel. The film focuses on the art of photography and the importance of the individual. The film does have some great images but overall, it is a good film. I'm not sure how many people will like it but I think that many people will enjoy it. There are a few things that I would have liked to see added to the film. I think that the film makers should have used the original script to make the film more exciting. I also would have liked to see more of the two women who were in the film and their relationship. Overall, I think that this is a good film that is worth watching.

Although the images and music in this documentary are so well-known that you could skip it and you wouldn't miss much, it still is not without its flaws. First of all, the movie's not a documentary, it's a documentary-to-movie crossover. Some of the images are so well-known that you might not even notice them until the end of the movie. I could never forget the first time I saw the butterfly, and it was the first time I saw a photograph of an Indian tribal woman. I found this interesting because I've been to India myself and I know how remote the Indian tribal people are and they still have very colorful traditional tattoos. What was even more interesting is that the movie never showed the story behind the film. It had all the steps taken to make this film, but didn't explain the steps, so it made the film a little bit confusing. But even if the movie was confusing, it was still a great movie. It's funny, touching, and even a little bit shocking. It also included a few historical events, which you would not expect, and this is what I love about the movie. It's not the least bit boring, and there are scenes that will leave you speechless. I think the best thing about this movie is that it shows how some of the best filmmakers are. They did their homework, and the result is a great film. It's great to see movies that are being made and being praised, and this movie is one of them.

A few years back I caught this film on the PBS documentary series "Newsnight" and loved it. I just caught it again on the Discovery channel and loved it even more. The plot of the documentary is almost identical to "Newsnight" and it's about "those two men" (Dick and Greer) who are two of the most prolific pranksters of the 20th century. The only difference is that Greer has a BBC radio station and is known for his pranks, while Dick is a film director who pranks for a living. They both hang out in New York City at the time of the Kennedy assassination and later for the Watergate scandal. The BBC crew had a camera crew there but it was Dick who took the first stab at the stunt. I've always thought that his pranks were much more successful than Greer's. This documentary does a good job of showing how they worked together. I think the best part of the documentary is the interview with Richard Nixon, who tells the story of how he learned about the pranksters and how he almost got his attention. The documentaries had a lot of people who were involved in the prank phenomenon and it gives you a good idea of the times. It's a good story and it's a fascinating story.

I've seen many documentaries on the history of music and movie making, but this one takes the cake. Every scene is so well-made that it is hard not to watch them all. The author has taken a huge variety of archival footage and put it together to create a moving and intimate account of the making of the greatest American movie of all time. The director is able to keep the audience at a constant distraction by showing bits of the scene but never letting them focus on the main subject. For example, if you want to learn the ins and outs of the movie making process you would have to watch the entire documentary, and this is a tough thing to do. The movie itself is a great movie, and I recommend it to anyone who likes movies and history. If you are not an expert on the subject, or if you have never seen a movie before, this is a great documentary to see. I was very impressed.

As a veteran of independent film and the people who make it, I have to say that I found this film to be in its essence a classic. The photography is great, the cast is great, the editing is great, the story is great, the music is great, and the ending is great. If you are like me and love independent films, I highly recommend this movie. It's not a flashy production, but it is a nice touch of independent film. I am a huge fan of the late night talk shows that the talk show hosts did. This movie has a great look on what independent film is like, and how they go about making it. In addition, the characters are great and you find yourself rooting for them. For fans of independent film, this movie is an excellent introduction to the genre.

What the hell is up with Michael Moore? Does he like to go on these interviews and make it sound like he's making a documentary. No, of course he's not. He doesn't like to do interviews. It's just not his style. He's very adept at making films that seem like documentaries. This is one of the films that he does in his film category, The Moore File. Moore interviews some of the biggest names in the movie industry and the people who work for them. He does this with the knowledge that he is being interviewed. He has some very interesting interviews with people who have gone on to do great things. I really enjoyed this documentary because I really liked the people interviewed. But, that doesn't mean it's a good documentary. It is very biased and biased people were interviewed. You can tell that he's not doing this to make a documentary but to attack the people who make the films he's criticizing. This is also one of those documentaries that was made because of the ratings and the awards that it got. It was a very low budget film and it didn't have a big budget. I would say that the movie is a 7/10 but I wouldn't call it a great film. It's entertaining and entertaining is what I like to watch.

I'm not sure how much of this documentary is true, but it seems a pretty good summary of the last 10 years of punk rock in America. I'm not sure I could have enjoyed this documentary more, but the real wonder is that so many people are willing to pay good money to see it. I have seen it at several different film festivals, and I'm still trying to find a copy somewhere. This is definitely a documentary for people who are interested in punk rock, but is also an introduction to the people who are making it. It's a great documentary, and I recommend it for everyone.

I recently caught the film version of Jarmusch's "The Fear Factor" on TBS, and I was very impressed with the film's production and special effects. The film is also a bit long at almost two hours, but I think that the director was trying to make the film as realistic as possible. I liked how the film was almost devoid of any language, but the sound effects are still very powerful, and I liked how the film was made in black and white. It's very graphic and disturbing in some ways, but the film is still a powerful piece of work that I recommend. If you haven't seen the film, I highly recommend it. I think it's one of the best films of the year. "The Fear Factor" is an excellent film about the dangers of drugs. It's not for everyone, and I highly recommend not having children under the age of 12, as the film will scare them too much.

I watched the original and loved it so much I wanted to see the sequel. So I rented "What Dreams May Come". This is a documentary about the movie and how it was made. It's a little on the long side, but I like how they capture the studio's full reaction to the original. The movie is good, but I don't think it was a great movie. It's pretty good and I'll see it again. I'm not sure how much I'll like it as I've only seen the original a few times. I'd say it's worth seeing if you've seen the original. I liked it and I think you should.

This documentary is set in New York City during the early years of the disco scene. It tells the story of the rise and fall of Studio 54 and how the owners, who didn't know how to run a music store, were forced to deal with the problem of drug use. While not a particularly great film, it does do a good job of making its points without making too many of them. It's worth seeing for the story, and it's worth seeing for the music.

I saw this documentary at the screening room at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Director Michael Moore got together with some of the greats of the early '70s, including Gene Wilder, Susan Stroman, and Jane Fonda. There's lots of great talk about the great films that came out during this era of film making. There are also some very funny sketches that Moore and his friends used to do. "Unbearable Lightness of Being" (which I think is my favorite of all of the documentaries I've seen so far) is one of my favorites. But I think the one that has to be the funniest is "The History of the World". I don't think there's really anything else to say about this film. I loved it. It's really funny. I've already seen this movie a couple of times and it's just so funny.
