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.

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.
