I was fortunate enough to meet Mr. JT LeRoy in person at the 2012 J.T. LeRoy convention in Ohio, and I was very impressed with his charisma and charisma in his presentations. I am a retired lawyer in a small town in Oklahoma, and I am really hoping that he can help my small town. We need a lawyer with a proven track record in Oklahoma, and Mr. JT LeRoy fits the bill perfectly. The only reason he has not been selected to represent my small town is that he is an ex-con. I would like to see him represent my small town in any legal action against the oil companies that are ruining my community. This is a documentary film, not a biopic, but it has a great message that should be shared with all of you. I am glad to have seen it, and I plan on telling everyone I know about it.

This documentary is a must-see for anyone who wants to learn more about JT LeRoy's life, or even someone who is interested in his story. It is a must-see for everyone, including people who are not into death and mourning, and even people who are into those things, but would like to know more about the man and his life.

This film is one of the best films I have seen in years. This film is about a man who was forced to become a gay at a young age, and was not allowed to be a normal part of his family. He was beaten at school, and was only accepted by his family when he left home to live with his family in New York. He finally had to leave home when he was 12 years old. It's about a man who's life was turned upside down. His life turned upside down because he had to take a stand against his own family. This is a must see film.

This documentary is a must watch. This documentary explores the lives of three people who are active in a new social movement in the USA. The documentary begins with a visit to a mental hospital, a place that is notorious for the mental illness of the patients. In the hospital, three patients in particular, a man named JT LeRoy, and his brother, Henry, both former activists and now both living free in the USA. The documentary follows their journey to the US, their interaction with other activists, and their interactions with the police. It also shows the struggle of JT LeRoy and his brother Henry to be able to leave the mental hospital. Henry has never been to the US and seems to have a strange relationship with the authorities. This documentary really gives an idea of what activists go through, and the journey of JT LeRoy and Henry shows how each individual has their own way of dealing with the situation they are facing. The documentary is really well done, and is full of personal stories of the activists, as well as the stories of their families. The documentary is an excellent film. I highly recommend it.

I first watched this film in 2000 and I was moved to tears. I saw it again a few years later and now a few days ago. I was in the theatre with my husband and he had tears in his eyes as well. This film is not easy to watch, but it is not only about the horrors of the Holocaust. It is about the courage of people who saw this happening, and it is about the efforts that people in Poland made to help Jews who were trapped in the Lodz ghetto, to help them get to safety. I was impressed with the information given by the survivor who lived in the Lodz ghetto, and it is also very informative on the history of the Holocaust and on the Polish people's reactions to it. This film is very important and is a must-see.

This documentary was absolutely excellent. First, it was a "no compromise" documentary. The same old story was presented, without the "twist" that other documentaries usually do. It was refreshing to see that the documentary makers had a clear, straight forward story to tell. Secondly, it was a "yes" documentary. The documentary makers had to make a decision in this documentary, not a decision that they made for all of the other documentaries they've made. It was a "no compromise" decision. Finally, the documentary makers did a great job of not trying to push a particular political viewpoint, and did not "over-do" the politics. It was not a political campaign commercial. It was not a pro-Obama campaign commercial. It was a documentary that talked about the human story of Jesus Christ. As a Christian, I loved this documentary. I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a documentary to watch.

I have been a fan of the famous restaurant ever since I was a child. The Food Truck Festival was a great success and we are going to bring it back. We are raising money to pay for permits, trucks, and food to put on the festival. There will be an awesome live band playing our original tunes and some other cool stuff. The best part of the festival will be the food trucks. They will have plenty of food trucks to satisfy the people. The Fest will be a fun time and we hope that the people support us and help us bring this festival back. I would like to thank the JT LeRoy family for your kindness and generosity. We are going to need it again and again. This is a great opportunity for us to show people what kind of food we have, the people, and the culture that we are a part of. Thank you for helping us bring this festival back and making the world a better place for people who love great food and the food truck festival!

The narrator is as real as it gets. It is a great documentary about JT's life and career. He was a big fan of Scientology and that's why he wrote the book. There is a lot of bad stuff in the movie, but I didn't think it was all bad. It was mostly true. This documentary has a lot of good stuff. I love it. I can't wait to see it again.

I'm an independent film student in college and I saw this documentary as part of a course on documentary making. My professor brought up this fact that Mr. LeRoy had produced an eight-minute short film on AIDS and that it had been shown at the Florida AIDS Memorial Hospital. I have been trying to find this short film since then and I have been unable to find it. I have been told that the person who made the short film was "disappointed" in Mr. LeRoy because he didn't want to be associated with him anymore. I also read the article in which Mr. LeRoy was interviewed and it stated that he was very passionate about his work and he was very proud of his work. I believe that the people who wrote that article must not have been able to find this film or they must have been made up. This film is not just about the AIDS epidemic but it is also about his life and the success of the film that he made. I believe that he should be given a proper film. If anyone knows where I can find a copy of this film, please contact me.

I think this documentary will be an instant classic, as it has given a new meaning to what a documentary is supposed to be. The film was very well-made, and, along with being completely accurate in it's depictions of the real people and their stories, it was a masterpiece of movie-making. It was the story of the true "Biggest Hoarders in the History of the World." The director and the producers had the courage to show the true suffering that people go through when they are caught up in a life of hoarding and selling. I think this movie will go down in history as one of the best documentaries ever made. I am also very thankful that I have the opportunity to view it.

The JT LeRoy Story is a documentary about the life of JT LeRoy, an American inventor and author of the bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code. The movie was filmed by a retired British journalist, Robert C. Tucker, and it's made up of footage of the author and his wife and their daughter. The movie is both informative and funny at the same time. As JT's story is so fascinating, the movie isn't just a collection of clips and interviews. The movie takes you through a lot of interesting details about JT and his family. You can see the pictures of his home, the birth of his daughter, the time he spent in jail, and even the time he spent on his death bed. JT's story is interesting because you can't really see the true facts of his life. He was a really nice guy, and he didn't have a bad heart. He had a really strong will and his heart was really strong. He was very intelligent, and he had this great desire to understand the mysteries of the world around him. This is one of those things that is really difficult to understand, but in the movie, you can see the work that JT put into it, and you can see how he was able to do it. He was a very talented writer and he wrote his own book. I really enjoyed this movie, and I really recommend it to people. You will definitely enjoy it, and you will be able to see it on a lot of different levels.

I'm a little disappointed with this documentary. I expected it to be more of a compilation of the life of JT LeRoy, rather than just one person's life. It doesn't feel that way at all. I like watching documentaries, but this is just one person's life. I can't help but think that the documentary could have been much more. We see JT on his TV shows, and it's great to see him interact with the fans. The fans talk about him so much, and I don't understand why they would want to destroy the memories of him. The documentary doesn't have a lot of action. It does have some music, but it's not enough. It's like they wanted to do a film about his music, but didn't have the courage to make a movie about his life. It's a great documentary, but I wish it would have been more like the documentary we saw in the documentary. I recommend it to people who like movies. I don't recommend it to people who like documentaries. It's just another one of JT's fans' bad memories. I give it a 9 out of 10.

What a powerful film. I was blown away by the sheer power and beauty of it. The first time I saw it was on a home-made DVD, and I couldn't take my eyes off of it. It is a must-see for all who are interested in science and the history of our world. If you are not interested in science and the history of our world, you are missing out on a wonderful film. I highly recommend it to everyone.

I am very surprised at all the negative reviews I have read on this film. I found it to be very informative and entertaining. I have seen so many documentaries that I am very much aware of the major problems with our society and the shortcomings of our culture. I was very impressed with the way this film dealt with all the issues presented, especially the one with the issue of child pornography. I think that the more we look at this issue, the more we are going to see that it is a problem that is not going to go away anytime soon. I thought the documentary was very well done and well presented. I am surprised at all the negative reviews that have been posted here. I don't think that the film is too biased, as I believe that many of the people who have been commenting on this film are either the same people who are not doing their homework on this issue, or they are simply people who have no respect for anyone who has a different opinion. I highly recommend this film. It is very well done and very educational.

I enjoyed the film so much, I did not know how I would feel about it but I was sure it would be great. The story of JT LeRoy is amazing, I love how he told the story of him and the story of his kids and the amazing thing is, he did not tell it in a way that it would make you feel good, instead he told the story so you would understand what it was like to grow up with him. It was just great, he gave the movie it's title and did an awesome job of not leaving any stone unturned and making it all very entertaining. I would recommend this film to everyone and it's definitely worth the time and money. I recommend you go see it, you will not regret it. I give it 10/10

The JT LeRoy Story is a masterpiece that brings back some good memories of the 50's and the 70's. I am a big fan of the man himself, so this documentary is very interesting to me, and I can't wait to get this documentary on DVD. The music was excellent, the fashion and the clothes and everything about the film were just perfect. I loved the story behind it all, and I am not sure how I will ever see the same film again. I was extremely impressed by the documentary. The most interesting thing about the story is that it is based on a true story. The stories were different, but the common thread was the same. I was really impressed by the documentary, and I can't wait to see it on DVD. The DVD I got is in NTSC format, so I watched it in PAL mode. This was a great way to watch it, because there were no subtitles. It was very easy to follow and understand. I would recommend this movie to everyone, because it is so good.

This documentary is a breath of fresh air, it is a riveting story of one man's struggle with AIDS and his struggles in his own life to live a "normal" life. His documentary is a true story of a man that did everything in his power to help others with the disease. It is a story of hope and how a simple wish can make a huge difference. I am not a medical professional and I do not claim to know all the facts of the disease but this is a true story that deserves to be told. It is a story that I have not heard told in many years and it is a story that I will never forget. I urge everyone to watch this documentary. You will leave the theater with a sense of peace, hope and compassion for all those that live with the disease and the man who put his life on hold to do what he felt was the right thing to do.

I would like to say, this documentary is a really good documentary. You get to know about the life of the great character JT LeRoy, an American astronaut, who goes to the moon in 1969. The documentary is well done, but it's also kind of depressing. The documentary doesn't show a lot of NASA footage, but you get to hear about the astronauts' stories and the most important parts of their life. The documentary does an excellent job in showing the importance of what they had done and how important it was. Also, the documentary is well edited, so you don't get bored. I think it's a really good documentary and I would recommend it to everyone.

What a wonderful documentary about a man who was a true original, a true patriot, a true American, and a true champion of the poor. His story is about how his life changed because he was on a life changing journey and he did it on the road. He made himself the greatest athlete he could be and he did it all in the name of his country. He was the kind of person who would not quit until he got the job done, and he did it on the road. This film is a must see for everyone who loves sports and American history. It is a MUST SEE for those who are interested in the real story of the American Revolution and the creation of the American military.

My friend went to see this film at the Gare du Nord, and he said it was excellent. It was truly an amazing experience. It was so powerful. It brought me to tears many times. I had never had such a profound experience watching a film, and it felt like I had been there. It was very moving. I am now in my fourth year in a PhD program at the University of Maryland, and the same story has affected me, and has affected all of my students and family members, and I feel very grateful that this movie was made. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in seeing it, and I am sure it will inspire many others to do the same. Thank you for making this film!

This movie is a must see for all. The JT LeRoy Story is a riveting and gripping documentary about a true hero who not only inspired but almost single handed saved the world. JT LeRoy was a selfless man who used his position to save countless lives. He was a hero for the world, a hero for the people of San Diego, and an example for those who didn't even know him. This is a true story that all Americans should see. A true story of a true hero.

This film tells the story of JT LeRoy, an aging gay man who started in the porn industry as a teenager. He went on to do this until he was 65 and had prostate cancer. His story is told through the eyes of his wife, Susan. Her husband has made this film for her and her own family. The movie is very well made and I highly recommend it. It tells the story of a man who was well loved and respected by his peers. He was an inspiration to many. He had a loving wife, two beautiful children, and a loving home. Then, cancer took his life. He had no choice but to make this documentary and share his story. This is a must see documentary for everyone. It is not only about JT LeRoy, but about the gay community and how it's portrayed in movies. It's a very important film. It is an important story that needs to be told.

JT LeRoy was an artist and a writer who took us on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I loved seeing him and his family's story, especially his great mother and brother. The documentary is a journey through his life and his art and the people that loved him, not just loved him. I don't think I have ever heard the phrase "art is not a matter of taste". I am still stunned by his skill and talent. The documentary is just a story of what it means to be a JT LeRoy and to be loved.

JT LeRoy's story has been long neglected and in my opinion that is a shame because I think his life was a true triumph and a true tale of courage. What we see in the documentary is a man who was driven by greed and had no regard for his family, but in the end he found his true love and lived a good life, but his was a good life that he lived and I'm sure many others will too. I would like to add that although the documentary is long it is not boring, it is very informative and very moving. And it is not only the story of JT LeRoy but it is the story of many Americans of that era, the journey of a great man and his legacy. This is a story of courage, not of power but of powerlessness, of greed and of love. It is the story of a man who lived a great life but who was driven to live a great life by greed and who ended up in a place that he could not return to, the US. This is a story of what happens when power is abused and it is a story that is as important as the story of the revolution itself.

I am a big fan of this great actor, director, producer and writer. He has been at the top of his game for the last 20 years, and I think he is a very talented individual. He has shown himself in his work many times over, but the film-making and his personal life remain quite private. And now, thanks to a documentary, we know much more about him and his life. With a little effort on his part, he can turn his family's personal lives into a big success. Thank you, Mr. LeRoy!

I watched this movie with great anticipation. I have been a fan of JT for several years now. I am a huge fan of his music. The production of this documentary is so beautiful. I have watched it twice now. I have not looked at the trailer for the first time in my life. It makes me laugh. I have also cried. It is a perfect movie. It's a beautiful and true story. I hope that people will watch it and make the right decision.

This documentary is a MUST-SEE for everyone who is concerned about how our food is affecting our health. It chronicles the life of the JT LeRoy, an all-American boy who fell on hard times in a small Iowa town. The documentary follows the LeRoy family and their struggle to survive as they go through the conventional and organic food system. It also shows how JT, who at one point had 2 jobs and 4 kids, became so determined to fight the system to help his family. He has recently been diagnosed with cancer and it is heartbreaking to watch him and his family struggle and face their battles. The documentary is made so well and the families who have featured in the film are such strong and self-reliant individuals. I highly recommend that you see this film and tell your friends and family. There are so many lessons to be learned here and this film gives you a wonderful opportunity to do just that.

Truly one of the most touching films I have ever seen. It was very surprising that this is such a recent story, but I was also expecting to see more and more heart-breaking emotions and even more reality. I'm really glad I watched this film, it has brought me closer to my own death than I ever thought possible. The film's emotional weight is really too heavy to ignore, but the sadness, confusion and misery is also very realistic and very much like what would happen to real people. I also feel this is one of the best films ever made, it's simply unbelievable how many people believe in God or in some form of afterlife and still go to heaven. People who die in old age usually leave behind some sort of irreparable damage. We've seen it all in the movie, from the bitter end of a marriage, to the short-lived romance that never lasted, to the fleeting glimpse of some happy time. We also see what happens to a family after the death of a beloved, while the deceased is still alive, and this is very much like what happens to real people. I believe this film is a must see for everyone, especially for Christians. It's an amazing movie that will stay with you for a long time.

I have no idea why this movie is so highly rated. I thought it was going to be a film about the art of making films, but it was more about the art of film making. And the viewer has to be an art student to understand what this movie is saying. The things I've learned from this movie are fascinating and I am going to think about it for a long time. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn about film making. Don't believe what the critics say. This movie is not just for a few who like to take things personally and say that the director is a liar. But everyone should learn something from this film.

I am a Marine, so I am always searching for information on the people, organizations and circumstances that have shaped my career. I have to say that The JT LeRoy Story is a very interesting and informative account of one of the greatest Marines I have ever known. It's interesting because the author did not only write a book about the life of JT LeRoy, but also writes about the times when he was an undercover policeman in the Philippines and the many investigations that followed. I would recommend that people who have not yet read the book read it and try to understand the context and the man behind the story. I would also like to say that I was very impressed by the photography, because it gives the viewer a sense of the world the characters were living in. I also thought that the author used a good mix of music and narration, and that it fit the story perfectly. I will not go into any details of the story because I think that you should watch the movie. I will just say that I loved this movie, and I was surprised that the book was even better.

I am a regular user of the internet, and that is what this documentary did for me. It made me look at the world from a completely different perspective. While many people have been disgusted by the documentary, I found it to be an amazing and enlightening story. I found it extremely entertaining, and it was a great way to give back to the movie industry. I loved how the film made you feel like you were there, and how you felt for the people in the movie. It also showed a glimpse of what life in the 60's was like, how things were a lot different and people did not talk about their feelings at all. It also showed how difficult it was to have to fight back, and how difficult it was to make new friends after being a celebrity for so long. I loved how it was made. It was an amazing and incredibly inspiring documentary. I loved how they had the ability to let the viewers talk and be like the people they were talking about. It was a great way to show how hard life was back then. It was so exciting and an amazing documentary to be able to view. It made you feel like you were there. It was an amazing film, and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the movie industry or anyone who has been an actor or star.

As someone who has been in the game for several years, and at some point in time had a few friends in the industry, I can say that this film was a great look at what happens behind the scenes of an industry. And what it really means to be a business person. When I watched it I was struck with emotion and thought, "I've been there, done that". The director was able to touch upon all aspects of this industry and everyone in it. He showed us the business, the real world, the ups and downs of working in a gaming company. The hardships that are faced by everyone, including gamers. The discussion of what a business person should be like. What people say when they are introduced to someone who works in this industry, and how much they have in common. The news conference that was held when the video was released. The people that stood behind the camera. I was reminded of what it's like to be in the industry. To see the people that you have known for a very long time, that you are trying to grow in, just that little bit closer to success. To see that they feel the same. That they are being forced to act the way they do to become what they are meant to be. That they have to make a decision, whether to be an entertainer, or a business person. To see how the "big money" people (CEO's, bankers, etc.) are trying to move the industry to the next level, and how they try to "erode" it. The thoughts that a person who has been there can see from the outside, and from a business person's perspective. I also thought it was interesting to see how this industry has changed since the time of the original release of The Video Game and how it has changed since then. The video was released back in 1997, and as a gamer I was really surprised to see that things had changed so much since then. The way that the industry has grown. The amount of money that is being made by the "big money" people that are trying to create this industry, the amount of people that are looking to make a lot of money from the games that are coming out. That the industry has changed from that of 1996. And that the industry is still growing today. That the video has given us a look at how a business person, or person in the industry is perceived. I think it's a great film that will give you insight into the industry and show you the reality of the industry. As someone who has been in the business, I can say that this film was really informative and entertaining, and the way that it was put together was really cool. I hope that this film gets as much distribution as it did, because I really can't wait to watch it again and again. I also can't wait for this film to be released on DVD, because I am sure that I will be purchasing it. It was a great documentary and I think that it really makes a great addition to any gamer's library, or to any gamer's collection.

Just watched this documentary and it really felt like it was for me and my family. I really don't know how to comment on this movie. It really touched my heart and the emotions and the reactions of the family members were so real. You could just feel them so much. I am truly proud of my parents for making this documentary and having the courage to make this film. They really pulled it off. They really did everything they could to make this documentary happen. This is something that truly makes me so proud of my parents and the family that they brought together for this documentary. We all need to learn from this documentary, and remember that we are not alone, that no matter what anyone says, no matter what you do or how bad your day was, no one is ever going to be able to take anything away from you. It was a good thing that they chose not to make this documentary a show or a documentary, but to really give us a glimpse of what it is like to be a teenage girl in the United States. It really is just such a beautiful documentary that really touched my heart and made me proud of my parents and the family they brought together for this documentary.

I never heard of this guy until I watched this movie, and then I saw this interview he had with The Root. I instantly knew that this guy is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, yet nobody has heard of him. What a story! And, for that, I have to say, there are some truly amazing filmmakers and producers out there, which is why I have such respect for this guy. This is a true story of a guy who, to tell the truth, the director of this movie, one day when he was a young man, went to a lot of movies with his brother. And, they were all getting paid. So, when he was bored, he would get on a plane and go to whatever he wanted to see. And, this is how he met his wife. And, he had a lot of money, because he was so rich that he had enough money to get into everything. And, he even got into that movie studio where he first met his wife. And, when he met his wife, she was a very wealthy woman. And, she wanted to find a movie studio. And, that was when this film was made. So, it's a story about how one guy became rich, and how he fell in love with his wife. And, the producer and director of this movie, Chris and Adam Stone, did a great job. So, go see it.

JT's wonderful story of life in a small town in the USA and how he went from working on a cattle ranch to becoming an international humanitarian who risked his life to save people's lives. JT's book, "What If?", is a must see for anyone with a desire to learn more about the "what if" - and what the future may hold.

If I had to name one, I would have to name JT. He really has made a significant contribution to the literature of the human condition. You will be shocked by the horrors of the Middle East but will be overwhelmed by the contributions of a man who has made himself the topic of several talks, documentaries and books. JT is the man that changed the way we look at human beings. This is why I say, you should take the time to see this movie. This is a very well done and is a very powerful, fascinating and emotional experience. The man has an incredible passion and he is the man we need to see more of. It's a pity that he is not available to talk about his experiences. I just want to say thank you for making this movie. I truly believe that this is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen and would recommend it to anyone who has been to Iraq or knows anyone who has been.

Every great documentary filmmaker has to make a movie at least once. Most are sequels to successful films. And most are just like this. I saw this movie a year ago and I still remember it. I never thought I would see this movie again. I just wanted to watch it again. So I did. I still remember it. I just don't think I would ever watch it again. It's just too much of a passion project. The movie shows the amazing work of JT LeRoy. It is the story of JT LeRoy. It is not the story of a famous musician. It is the story of an amazing artist. JT LeRoy has a heart that is made of love. He can go places you would never think a person can. He just makes you feel so lucky to be alive. I would recommend this movie to anyone. This movie is an amazing story of a man who was a pioneer of rock and roll. The rock and roll scene is like nothing I have ever seen. It is like a movie come to life. A lot of bands have been inspired by this movie. I want to thank JT LeRoy for this amazing documentary. I hope you enjoy it. This is not just a story about a rock and roll musician. It is about a man who went from a small town to a huge city. I have always loved this movie. I never thought I would like it so much.

Great Documentary. Im a huge fan of the band The Who and the work that goes into the making of a song. I have a copy of the movie and plan to purchase a copy when it is released on DVD. The original music, not just the studio version. The Story of the creation of that song and the way they kept it under wraps from the press until the day it was released. I know it sounds like a bad joke. But when you know the story and the background to the whole song and the group, the movie really helps make it all seem real. This movie is a must see. It will be a movie to remember and a movie that will make you want to be a fan of The Who and the music. I just hope that the people that created this movie can see the movie and decide to continue it and add it to the collection.

The hardest thing to convey in a short documentary is the immense amount of work that JT LeRoy did. He really did something that we would consider normal to this day, and that is very uncommon for a man of his age and stature. We see a man in his early 50s who works out, plays guitar and is an active member of the community, taking his time and doing things the right way. We also see him engaging in some very unorthodox and not particularly practical activities. He was an extremely gifted musician, and when he was young he had a great sense of humor and was very playful. He did not live a life of drugs or sex, and his life was full of balance and creativity. He worked at the beach and in a warehouse, and he would get his hands dirty doing his work. He was truly a legend in the world of music and a unique man.

A little known documentary about JT LeRoy. How he overcame an unspeakable tragedy. LeRoy was a very small person, a very shy boy who never had a relationship. He lost his family, and the loss of his family led to a depression. After losing his family he was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. This film follows his life as a young adult and then his struggles to be a father. One of the best things in this documentary is the character of Cheyne. He was a great narrator, showing his own life with all his struggles. Another highlight was seeing a documentary about what his dad did for him, and how it changed him. I was impressed with this film, it was touching and a great insight into the lives of the people around JT. I highly recommend this film.

This is a film that should be watched by all, including the local police. It tells the true story of JT LeRoy, a mentally disturbed youth who took his own life after he was falsely accused of murdering his mother and sister. It also tells how a pair of local police officers worked tirelessly to free him from prison. It also explores the extent of the psychological damage he had suffered during his imprisonment. It was not just prison that the police worked hard to prevent, but also the community around it. It reveals how JT's prison guards used harsh, violent methods against the inmates, and how their complaints were ignored. This film shows that it is easier to solve a problem than it is to help one. JT was able to use his intellect and creativity to overcome his prison walls and achieve greatness in his life. He was determined to give back to his community, and to help others learn the skills he had learned in prison. The whole film shows how a community can be changed and how it can thrive if only one person acts on their positive attitude. If you have not seen this film yet, please do so.

LeRoy is not just a criminal, he is a true icon. To the public, the most famous person in this world is convicted criminals. It is believed that he was the greatest criminal in history. The only thing that makes this man's story all the more important is that he is a true hero. To everyone who has ever had the misfortune of being arrested and incarcerated, you have the chance to tell their story to the world. Whether you have been sentenced to prison for life, you want to see how they reacted when they got out of prison, you want to hear about the treatment they received, or you just want to see the story of how their lives turned out after their release, this documentary is for you. It gives the real story of a man who has done more than anyone else ever will. LeRoy LeRoy was one of the most prolific criminals in history, and he has done so much more than just being a murderer. LeRoy's story tells the truth about why these people were locked up in jail. The stories that he tells are even more disturbing than the stories of the criminals themselves. In a time where more and more people are dealing drugs, or are committing crimes, LeRoy tells us that not all criminals are like this. The other stories that he tells show us the true side of the "L" word. As the story unfolds, the audience is confronted with shocking facts about how people who are considered "the bad guys" actually do good. It's a documentary that everyone should see. It shows you what prison is really like, it shows you the true face of a real criminal, and it shows you how people can get released from prison when they truly deserve it.

This movie is very well done and I found it very moving and heartbreaking at the same time. A man's story with a lot of messages. As well as people's stories. It is very moving and I would recommend it to anyone that is a member of the LGBT community or the people who are looking for a movie with some entertainment value. The story line is very well thought out and it gives you a good picture of what happens in some countries, which is so sad. However, I would say that the most important part of this movie is the people who were the subject of the story, the ones that went through all of the hardships that the main character goes through. I would like to say a few words about the actor, JT LeRoy. The movie is shot in England and is the last of the film, and he is in it for about two hours. This is what he does for a living, so you can understand why this is so important to him. He played the role very well and he did a great job. I also really liked the part with the whole pro and con thing. It was very well thought out and I think that is what made it very touching. I also liked how they had the background music to help tell the story. I also liked the scene where he meets with the people that were his friends and family. It was so touching and I think that that is what people are looking for. I also thought that the actors did a great job and it was very good. The movie is definitely worth seeing. It is very emotional and I think you will be very moved. I would definitely recommend this movie.

I am a 49 year old WWII veteran who lives in a retirement community. I was an armed services member for about 14 years and am a proud and committed American. I have the honor to be a part of this documentary. I am not a military person or supporter of the military. I love our country and the armed forces. I have watched this documentary over 10 times and recommend it to everyone. In our country we have a way of thinking about veterans. We have a pride in veterans, like the hero's we all are, and we do not talk about their struggles. I will say this movie is a great example of what veterans are going through. It shows what war can do to a person and how hard it is. I have talked to many veterans about this documentary. Many have told me how much it touched them. I am proud of what the military and veterans have accomplished and what we have accomplished. I am proud to be a part of this documentary and support veterans. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the production of this film.
