The life, both professional and personal, of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, nicknamed "Notorious RBG" by her biographers and followers, is presented. On the professional side, most of the focus on her career is as a lawyer and ultimately in 1993 only the second woman ever appointed as a Justice of the US Supreme Court, a position she still holds today at age eighty-five. Much of that work centers on eliminating gender discrimination - both of females and males - under the law, many policies, especially implemented by privileged white men, inherently discriminating based on what are seen as stereotypical gender roles in society. Although seen as a liberal leaning justice, she is seen even more as a consensus builder among her supreme court colleagues. It is in that role that she has formed an unlikely friendship with conservative leaning justice Antonin Scalia. That role of consensus builder changed when the balance in the court shifted radically to the right, she instead feeling compelled to voice her dissenting view to her colleagues in that continuation of the want for equality for all. Her legal ferocity belies the fact of her diminutive physical stature and generally soft-spoken nature. On the personal side, she was married for over fifty years to fellow lawyer and law school colleague Martin D. Ginsburg until his death in 2010, with he having deferring to her more successful law career despite his own success as a tax lawyer. Their household defied those stereotypical gender roles in certain respects, at a time in society where it would have been considered unique. Her love of opera is also shown, she having appeared in one opera herself in a non-singing role.

A very unique way of explaining what really happened that night. I don't know how many documentaries I have seen but this one gets me thinking a lot about what really happened in the moment.

I just caught this on TV last night and am still reeling at how unbelievably false this man is. His TV interview is worthless. His website is laughable. He just can't seem to catch a break. If I were him, I'd be sleeping on a pile of money while writing about how wonderful his life is. His "deathbed" comments are nothing but a paid advertisement for his DVD of "Man Comes to Peace" (and it's okay, I'm sure he'll give the rest of it away). This man is just plain weird. I'm sorry if he ever makes it to the big screen, but I sure hope he is un-made.

I'll admit that I was not in the mood for a documentary in the first place. I thought to myself "it's just another rehashed Hollywood movie where the musicians are talking about the dumb 'dopemess' films they made".But I was wrong!This movie was so well thought out that it seemed real and full of facts,and I don't think that it should have been released as a documentary because it was just such a great film.If you like good documentaries,you'll LOVE this movie!But I feel like it could have been just as good if the filmmakers would have been a little more forthright.All I can say is,LMAO!It is a beautiful movie and it has a lot of good things to say.I give it a 10/10.And it's definitely worth watching!

This film is a fascinating study in self-destructive behaviors and how they can be transformed into a positive, creative approach. The techniques discussed in the film, those shown to trigger creativity and change, include simple, repetitive, ineffective, and poorly understood behaviors. These are the ones that I struggle to find in myself and how they contribute to my addiction and its effects. The techniques discussed in the film are basic tools that we have all used and used and need to understand them better. The film is filled with images that will make you think, create new values, and help you live a life that you have been unable to live.

As a documentary filmmaker myself, I felt that my audience in the film came to see a part of the world that I missed because I lived in New York. The subjects spoke and performed very well, and it was easy to see that they had traveled through Europe, Japan, South America and Latin America. I think the film is well done and very informative. The cinematography, editing, music and sound design all complimented the content perfectly. I hope to see more documentaries from Mr. Bogner as he continues to raise the bar for documentary filmmaking.

I thought this movie was excellent and the real Donald Rumsfeld was very convincing. His reasons for being on the job in the administration must have been great. Unfortunately, my wife and I were in the audience that night. We did not realize he had been on the job for so long and this film made it very clear that we had been duped. Unfortunately, some people must have been duped. This documentary is the real story. Watch it.
