The story of the Newtown massacre has been told before. It is the story of the tragic shooting of 20 young children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. This movie does not tell the story of the massacre itself, but the story of the people who have been affected by it. We are treated to a glimpse of the horror that was the Newtown shooting. The movie is extremely well made and the actors are brilliant. The director and the writer have done a great job at telling the story of the people who were affected by the tragedy. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the Newtown shooting.

This documentary was awesome. The way it was shot and the story behind it was very well done. The way it made you feel like you were there is what a documentary should do. It was just amazing. The people that are interviewed were very interesting and I'm sure you will get to know them very well. I loved how they had a few scenes from the actual shooting and showed the reactions of the other people. It was really interesting and it showed how everyone was affected by this horrible event. I highly recommend this film and I hope that more people watch it. I don't think that this is a film that should be watched by the general public but if you want to know more about what happened in Newtown, you should watch this.

I have been following this story for many years. I was not surprised to see that this movie was coming out. It was only a matter of time. This movie was very good. It was about the whole story, and all the important things that happened. I recommend this movie to anyone who has any interest in the story. I know I will be watching it again and again.

There is a reason why this is an Oscar-winning documentary. There is no doubt about it. The overwhelming sense of injustice and a shocking scene that is not only disturbing but for some reason almost too heartbreaking to be real, this is a movie that should be seen. And a rare find, you won't find a more balanced and on point account of this event in our history. The real violence of gun violence in this country, that is a topic I often discuss in my lectures, comes to a head in this one, and if this event ever happens again, I say to myself, 'No one should have to live like this'. It was at this point that I really felt the need to write a little review, to say thank you to all those who helped make this documentary a truly a true history. I really am sad that the movie was not nominated for best picture, because it deserves it. Yes, it was a true triumph of film-making and journalism, but there is a reason for that, it wasn't nominated for best picture. It deserves it, no matter what, it deserves to be seen and appreciated for what it is, a brilliant film-making and storytelling.

My wife and I went to the screening of this film at the SF Museum of Film. It is the first film we have seen from the film festival that was not a Sundance Film Festival winner. We saw the film in the theater and were very disappointed by it. The film was very slow and had no plot. It was very slow and boring. It was a very long film and not worth the time we spent to go see it. I would not recommend this film to anyone. It is not worth the money we spent to see it.

I was so very excited to see this film. I knew it was going to be a lot different than I thought it would be. I thought it was going to be about the kids and how they were going to talk about the tragedy. What I got was a very personal look into the grief and the struggle for the survivors. It was a very emotional film. The only problem I had with the film was the fact that there was very little information about the actual events. They didn't go into too much detail about the people who were killed and what happened. But they did show a lot of the community and how they were coping. I would recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a more personal look into the events. It was very emotional and I think it was very well made. I was really impressed with the way the film was made and I think it is a very important film. I think it should be given more attention. I think it is very important to show the story of the people who lost their lives and what they went through. It was very well done and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good film about the events.

After watching the movie, I was appalled that this country continues to let the mentally ill and the mentally ill alone. I think the movie did a great job of explaining the concept of mental illness, and the effect it has on people. I think the movie was very realistic and made me want to go back to the hospital. The movie was a good portrayal of the mental illness and the impact it has on the person. It was a good movie and I would recommend it to anyone.

I was very touched by this documentary. Very different to what I was expecting. But, what I learned from this documentary is that even though there is so much hate in this world, no matter what anyone thinks of you, you have the right to live your life and not be a victim. The fact that this documentary is so heart-felt and unbiased made it even more rewarding. I hope this is seen by a lot more people.

This is a great documentary about the shooting of the elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, which occurred on December 14, 2012. It was an emotional and heart-wrenching experience for all involved. This documentary will be very difficult to watch for the parents of the victims, and will certainly bring back the memories of the victims' families. It is extremely difficult to watch the emotions and suffer of the parents of the victims. The events that took place in Newtown that day are still fresh in the minds of everyone in the United States. The documentary is informative and interesting, and will definitely give you the answers you need. It is a very good documentary that is well worth watching.

I was completely lost while watching this film. I found it hard to understand why it was shown on the History Channel. I also was confused as to why it was filmed in a different location. I can't help but feel that this film is a propaganda piece for the NRA. The film is full of clips from NRA videos that show their support of the Second Amendment and their arguments against gun control. I also found the voice-over voice-over on the audio of the NRA videos to be annoying. The only reason I gave this film an 8 was because of the fact that I am not a gun owner, but I did understand the video content and the content of the audio. This film is not a documentary, and does not show the facts of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It shows the NRA's stance against gun control. This film is a propaganda piece. I am sure that the NRA is not happy about this film and it is likely that the NRA is trying to make a political statement about gun control. However, this film is not an objective documentary and it is biased.

Although it is primarily a documentary film, it was very much an artistic film. I think it was important to include in this film the words of Martin's daughter and the words of his brother. It was also very important to include the words of Eric's friends and his brother. They all went on to form their own opinion of the event. I think the film makers did an excellent job in putting together all the pieces and then put them together into a film that has the truth on both sides. I highly recommend it.

I like my documentaries to have some complexity to them, but this documentary doesn't. What a great production job, and we really have a sense of what it is like to be a teenager in the 1970's. I think we can all appreciate the things that are right with the world that the documentary really does take us through. I don't feel this film is intended to be a documentary. What it really is is an exposure to the world in the 1970's. I think it is incredibly accurate, and the time period in which it was filmed was an incredible period to film. The movie doesn't have to be a documentary to be effective. I think this film shows how weird and fascinating this era was, and I think it is an important movie. If you can find it, watch it.

The movie 'shocked' me. I really enjoyed the opening and first 2 minutes. I liked the music in the movie. In fact I am a big Tony Bennett fan. I am so glad I saw it. The rest of the movie was great. I thought that Adam Kokesh was a good narrator, and that the focus on the tragedy that unfolded in Newtown was handled very well. I think this movie could be a good way for people to learn about what happened in Newtown, CT.

I found this documentary to be very compelling. I thought the documentary showed the media's lack of reporting in the case of the Newtown shooting. I felt that if more media was willing to report the real events, the potential for a new tragedy like this one could be avoided. I feel that the filmmakers captured the true feeling of the Newtown community and gave it the spotlight it deserved. The acting was superb and the group scenes made me laugh and cry. It also showed that there are many people in the media who actually care about the truth and they will do anything for their next paycheck. I don't think anyone who watched this film will be surprised by what the media and politicians will do to cover up a real tragedy like this. My rating for this documentary is 10/10.

As I was watching the film, I was stunned by how much I found myself relating to it. This is an extraordinary film about the most tragic event in US history, and how the aftermath is still felt in today's world. The film was well made and the cast was excellent, especially the children. The story is told through the eyes of a 5 year old girl named Sasha. I was surprised by the amount of violence shown in the film, and the intense scenes of violence in the film were disturbing and upsetting. I think it is a film that should be seen by all, especially those who are not familiar with the events of that day. It is a powerful film, and I think all people should see it.

The movie "Saw" (2014), by filmmaker and documentary maker, Jeffrey E. Bates, was pretty good and I was really hoping that this movie would be better. However, "Saw" is just an average movie that isn't very good and the other people who want to watch the movie are either seriously looking for information on the movie or they are fans of the film. This is the main reason why I decided to give "Saw" a 9 out of 10. "Saw" is a very long movie, it is full of horror and suspense and some drama and also people like to watch "Saw" for the ending and this movie is not that kind of ending, it is much better than "Pitch Black", but not much. "Saw" is a good movie that I enjoyed and the ending is very good, the only thing is that the movie is a bit too long and it is a bit too sad for some people, I recommend it to people who are not fans of horror or suspense or drama. I give "Saw" a 9/10 and "Pitch Black" a 8/10.

This is one of the best documentaries I've seen in a long time. If you're not the sort of person who'll enjoy the inside story of the main characters you can still see the horror unfolding around them. I saw this at the School of Cinematic Arts, where I was able to meet the filmmakers, review the film, and get a good overview of the story.

I have watched this movie about 10 times and every time I watch it, it gets better and better. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the shooting deaths of many young people at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and is concerned about the future of our country. I highly recommend this movie, but be warned, it may make you angry and upset. I think this movie is very well made, and I can't understand how some people could not understand the importance of this movie. I think that the only reason that people have not seen this movie is because they are afraid of the truth. I think that everyone should see this movie, because it is the only way to understand the events that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the future that our country will have.

I have a lot of respect for those who have been affected by the Sandy Hook shooting and the subsequent Congressional debate. My hope is that this documentary will give people a better understanding of what it was like to live through this tragedy. The movie has a lot of interesting footage from both sides of the debate. There is also a lot of information about the politics of gun control and the background of the NRA. The movie is very balanced in its coverage of both sides of the debate. The documentary also tries to get some insight into what the public thinks about the gun control debate. I would have liked to have seen a little more of the background of the NRA, but this is probably a small complaint. Overall, the movie is worth seeing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has been affected by this tragedy.

What a gripping movie! I love the reason they killed her. I loved how they showed how she was in the book, as if they didn't see that one of her friends was at the clinic and she had to deal with it herself. I loved the scenes showing how the kids were raised and how they thought she was a 'good girl', but she was far from it. I especially loved how the son had to deal with the loss and that his father never fully believed him. I was just a small child when this happened and my mother had to deal with it alone and how the family never truly understood the loss. I hope this movie gets to the point where it gets seen by the right people, especially the right people who had to deal with the tragedy. I felt like I was a child again, so I cried a lot! It was a real emotional roller coaster for me. My mom said the actors in the movie were all excellent. It was very moving and she was very emotional. I felt the same way. The movie does a great job of showing you how one person changed the world and how that person was able to move a nation. It was an amazing story that needed to be told.

This is a pretty shocking movie. I'm surprised that it got such a low rating on IMDb, which is surprising considering the subject matter. It does take a lot of bravery to put something so graphic on the screen, and that is a scary thought for many people. I am really surprised at how many people here thought the film was unbelievable. This is more than a documentary on the tragedy. It's a reflection of how a tragedy can impact people and how they can act on the moments of grief. I have known a few people who were the same age as Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. I think that there is a very important story to tell. I wish more people could see it.

I agree with the majority of reviewers here. This movie is a very important piece of our history and it is very sad that this movie is very obscure and has been overshadowed by the one which is currently playing in theaters. I'm actually more shocked than anyone that this movie was even nominated for Best Picture, but if you want a factual documentary look elsewhere. I watched this movie a few years ago and read a few articles about it, but it wasn't until I finally got around to watching it again that I saw the movie for what it is. I believe it's important to do this because we as a nation can learn a lot from it. The movie is set in the 1920s in the small town of Newtown, Connecticut and follows the lives of the town's residents as well as their children and how they cope with the tragedy. The film is well done, it captures the truth, but at the same time it is biased. It's well researched, but the people behind it seem to be very biased in favor of the gun control movement. To me this is a great movie, and it will stand the test of time.

I'm a little surprised that this movie was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary. It's a good movie. But the reason it was nominated is because it has a good message, and the movie is very good at showing how people can be affected by tragedies. The movie is not made for the general public, but rather for the people who knew and loved the victims and their families. I'm not a political person, but I feel that this movie should have been nominated for Best Documentary.

I am not a gun guy, I don't really like guns, but I was surprised how much I could relate to this documentary. I'm a gun owner and I saw the documentary and I was moved. I felt like I was there with them. The film was well done and very entertaining. It had an easy to understand narrative and it did not feel like it was edited in a hurry. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone who likes to understand the issue of gun violence.

This documentary tells a gripping story of a young man who lives with the guilt of his involvement in a mass shooting in a local school, his parents' loss of faith and their struggle to help him heal and come to terms with his trauma. While the details of this horrific event are painful to watch, one must remember that this is a small town and a handful of people in this small town in New Hampshire are in a very different position to the rest of the nation. Indeed, it is worth noting that as this movie shows, this incident happened only a few years before Columbine, in a county with a population of about 50,000 people. We are reminded of the inherent humanity of ordinary people, and that the acts of the most evil do not always lead to tragedies like those of the Columbine massacre. The film focuses on a group of ordinary people who stand together to help one another, and who grow in their ability to act in an emergency situation. To see the courage of those who were there on the day of the shooting is truly inspiring. This is not a movie which, like the Columbine shootings, depicts the senseless violence of a few bad apples. It is a story of individuals who were affected by the events of the day, and who sought the help of others. The ordinary people of Newtown did not deserve this kind of abuse. They were portrayed in a very sympathetic manner, with the help of well-meaning people, including a lawyer. This movie gives a different perspective from the popular portrayal of the event. It is a moving, heart-wrenching and at times harrowing story of people who tried to help one another, who took a risk to help one another, who were willing to give up their freedom, for the sake of one another.

Gloria Allred wants to make headlines with a movie about the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. But the documentary filmmaker behind the film, Adam Gilbertson, asks us to see a movie about an elementary school massacre from a new angle. This is not an attack on guns or the gun culture but a documentary about the difficulties faced by people with mental disabilities and their families who attempt to move on with their lives. It is also a call to action, especially for a person like Robyn Wills, a woman who lost her daughter and husband, at Sandy Hook. Many people have a difficult time dealing with their grief and struggle to find closure with the tragedy. Allred uses the Newtown shooting as a vehicle for her film and for her mission. The best part of the documentary is the interviews with survivors, relatives and friends of the victims. Their stories are riveting and tearjerking at the same time. As a filmmaker, Gilbertson is more focused on the emotions and the history of the event than he is on the specifics of the shooting itself. He also uses the history of mental disabilities as an excuse to make the film about guns. It is an intriguing and powerful documentary that deserves to be viewed by all who have an interest in history, society and politics.

This is a must-see documentary that aims to bring a more accurate and comprehensive view of what happened to the families and friends of those who died in the massacre of the Sandy Hook Elementary School. The film covers the years 2002-2005. Newtown Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Newtown was the setting for the 2012 mass shooting. The victim's names and home addresses are shown, along with the survivors' stories, including those of some of the teachers and other staff. The film was narrated by former US ambassador to Turkey Joseph Wilson. The filmmaker, Matt Apuzzo, said in an interview that "The film gives a human story. It is not an armchair movie that tries to do this stuff to make you feel good." Apuzzo and his film crew have been going into the homes of survivors of the shooting, and they take their interviews home to post on the Internet.

The best documentary of the year. I watched this documentary for the first time a couple of days ago and I was completely blown away. The story of Sandy Hook Elementary School was portrayed in a very realistic way. The camera work was done in a very natural way and the whole movie is shot in a very close up style. The documentary was done in the best way possible. It was very well paced and the story was told in a very realistic way. I was very impressed with the movie and I will definitely be buying the DVD. The documentary was very well done and I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is looking for a good documentary.

This film is probably the most compelling I have ever seen. How it is being put together, and the processes it goes through, is even more breathtaking than watching it. The film covers a lot of topics that would otherwise be lost. And it is an excellent starting point for the discussions that will be had as people dig into the crime and culture that has grown up around this town since its original tragedy. It is an incredible story of a mother, a daughter, and the people who are tied in to this town's violence, their lives, and the sins of their parents and the people who were around them. And it is a powerful message. It is also a very moving film. It doesn't pretend to have answers or explanations for the events of this tragedy, but it does try to give us a glimpse into how the horror of this tragedy has affected all the people who are connected to it. And it is a message that is something that we need to hear. This film is amazing. If you are looking for a film about a mass murder, a town torn apart by tragedy, and a story about people who have to live with these memories forever, this is the film for you. There is so much to learn about this tragedy, and there are so many different ways to talk about it that are better than what the director was able to show. But this film does its job well, and gives us a great overview of what has happened in our country and how it has affected the people who lived in the community.

Vanity Fair is a well-done documentary that does a great job of showcasing the first 10 months of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The documentary chronicles the efforts of some of the people involved in this tragedy and their efforts to hold the murderer of these young lives accountable. The documentary features interviews with many of the parents, teachers, police officers, and members of the media. I thought that the interviews were very informative and it is very important to remember that we are not talking about just one murderer. Sandy Hook Elementary School was a very special place and the families of the victims deserve much more than this investigation has given them. I feel that it is important to educate the public about this tragedy and not let them down. If you haven't seen this documentary and would like to, then I would highly recommend that you see it. I think that this documentary has given the victims and the families of the victims a much needed voice to help them feel as if they are in the film.

I have just watched "A Good Night to Die Hard: The Road to Redemption".I know there is some controversy about this movie,some say it is a horror movie,and I suppose it is.I have no issue with horror or not,but this movie really is a film on what happens when one man is left alone in his own country to die by the hand of the 'bad guys'.I like the movie and feel it is more than just a good guy dies movie.But it has been done in many other movies before this one,and to be honest,I think that's what make this movie so good.The story goes that Colonel Hans Gruber was the first to fight the terrorists back in the 90's,and he was one of the first to fight back and win.But it was not until now that he was left to die by the hand of the good guys,and that's what we see here.It's a very good story,the whole cast is excellent,and it's not just the soldiers that are good,but everyone in this movie.What I liked most about the movie was that there is no gore in it,there's no blood or gore in it,but it is a very good movie.I recommend you watch this movie,and then think about what you've seen,because this movie is great!

I don't think I've ever seen such a compelling and unifying documentary about the tragedy of a single family in a small town. It's a true story, but it's also a story of a community and a community's resilience. I watched the film while driving home from work, and it was so powerful that I didn't stop thinking about it for hours. I also had the opportunity to interview some of the family members and the sheriff. The footage is heartbreaking, and the emotions are raw and raw. You feel the pain, the anger, the sorrow, and the hope. It's a powerful, heartbreaking film that really brings the whole community together. The only other documentary that I can think of that compares to this one is "The Thin Blue Line."

I can't believe how much I enjoyed this documentary. It was a good look at the school and what happened there. I was surprised that the school wasn't talked about more. It was a little too close to home and the news coverage was spotty. I liked the interviews with the principal, the principal's wife, the superintendent, the principal's mother, the principal's son, the principal's sister, the principal's son's father, the principal's daughter, the principal's daughter's father, the principal's daughter's mother, the principal's daughter's mother, and the superintendent's wife. I also liked the pictures of the school and the school grounds. I think this documentary is a good look at what happened. The film has some spoilers. If you haven't seen this documentary, I recommend that you do. I think it's better than what's been on TV. I really liked this documentary. It was informative and entertaining.

My uncle in LA brought this film to us for an over-the-phone viewing. He explained that he was used to many films such as this that he has had to put up with because of his preoccupation with the horrors of war. So I can see why the elderly man sitting next to me started this film. It was an effective film. I was surprised to learn that the footage was almost entirely used for propaganda purposes. To be fair, the United States government does not take the issue of 9/11 very seriously, and certainly not in this film. There were no props. It was all done with video and sound. The great thing about this film is that it is so real. We can look at the faces of the people featured in the film. The scenes are often grainy, but they are very disturbing. This is especially true of the opening sequence. It is very painful to watch, and it is very graphic. This is no less true for the transition from scene to scene. The plot is simple. A boy and his grandmother, also a widow, decide to find the "original" murder weapon used to kill the President. This is not a spoiler. The boy and his grandmother go through the streets of Newtown, hoping to find the weapon that was used. There is a lot of disturbing imagery, and there are some very violent scenes. This film is not for the faint-hearted. It is not a propaganda film. It is very graphic, but it is not violent. The director wanted to make a film that would be an accurate representation of the events of this tragic tragedy. He succeeded. I am glad he did, because I found this film to be very powerful and very sobering. If you have the opportunity to see this film, see it.

As usual in life, tragedy will strike in the ordinary way and the ordinary is very likely to be a tragedy. When tragedy strikes, you can't help but wonder what happened to the other lives. In this case, the other lives included families of Newtown, Connecticut and Newtown, New York. This film is so powerful and tells us something we've all wanted to know, but have been denied. I hope there is no killing of children in Newtown, Connecticut, on Christmas and I hope there is no killing of children in Newtown, New York, on Christmas. I don't think so.

It is hard to believe that the first one hour of this documentary is devoted to a series of interviews with the actors who play the lead roles in the movie. However, when you get to the last hour, the movie becomes a little bit more focused on the main character, 20-year-old Dylan Klebold. This is a powerful film about a terrible event, and it is not a happy one. There is a lot of anger, and a lot of sadness. But you are not able to be sad with the movie, because it is about a real person who lived and died. There is not a happy ending for him, and he is not able to come to terms with his death. I think this movie is great, but I do not think it is a good movie. It is not about Columbine, or the Columbine Massacre. It is not about the Columbine Massacre. It is about a guy who was so angry, so obsessed with violence, that he decided to kill other people. And I think it is a very sad story. But it is also a very powerful movie. You really do not want to be the one who ends up in the movie.

I enjoyed this film very much, but I must say I was surprised by how much I liked it. I'm a liberal, but I was surprised by how many of the people in the audience were leftists and how they talked about the film. I thought the people in the audience were intelligent and did a great job of bringing their beliefs to the film. It's a documentary that goes back to the time of the massacre and brings it to the present day. It was very informative and made me feel that I knew what happened. I did not have any problems with the film, but I did have a problem with how much it focused on the leftist ideology. I think a lot of the people who attended this film did not want to hear the facts. I think it was a great film, but I think it would have been better if it had focused more on the real facts. If the facts were brought to the forefront, it would have made the film a lot more effective.

The documentary is about the 9/11 attacks and the effect it had on the people who were there. It's a very well-done documentary and the director and producer did a great job of presenting all of the important information that we need to know about the attacks. I'm a little surprised that the director was unable to produce a DVD version of the documentary, as it is very well-made. There are many scenes that are very emotional and disturbing. I think that if you have been in a room with someone who was at the attack, you will definitely feel what they are feeling. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the events of September 11, 2001.

I really liked this film. It was the first one I watched and it stayed with me for days. It is a powerful film that shows the brutality of a system that allows it to happen. It shows the children and their families as they face the problems of a society that has no regard for them. The director did a great job of showing the horrible things that happened. It is not just the killing of the children, but the torture and the abuse of the children. The director shows us a lot of the people involved and it is really amazing. I highly recommend this film.

It's not often that I see a documentary about a tragedy of this magnitude, but it's something I've never seen before. And it's something I'm glad I saw. I thought it was very powerful and emotional. It brought me to tears many times. It's a must see. The documentary is about the shooting of 20 year old Adam Lanza. It's a very good documentary that will make you feel for the victims and their families. I also think it's a great movie and a great documentary. I give it an A+.

I have just watched this film at the New York Film Festival, and I am so grateful that I did not see this film in the theater. I am a big fan of this documentary, and it was hard not to be emotionally affected by this film. The documentary does not focus on the events of the tragedy itself, but rather on the people involved in the event. While the film does not cover the actual events of the shooting itself, it does tell the story of the families and friends of the victims. It is a beautiful film, and it is so moving to see how the film portrays these families and friends. While I do not agree with everything the documentary says, I feel like it is very honest and true. I am glad that this film was made, because it will help bring some closure to the families and friends of the victims. This film is a must see, and I can not wait to see it again.

I was thoroughly entertained by this film. I thought it was well-made and well-acted. I have seen the documentary about the shooting of the kids, and was impressed by the reporting. I had no idea that the shooting happened in a high school until the film came on TV, and the events were reported very well. I thought the film was accurate, and was glad to see the events from a different perspective.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I really love this documentary. I think it's very honest and informative. The acting is great and the director shows us how the "high school boys" were affected by the massacre. He shows us the incredible hatred and violence that existed in the town. It really makes you think about how one individual can make a huge impact on the lives of so many people. This film will keep you on your toes. I think that this is a very important documentary that should be shown to everyone. I think that the director and the actors are very talented and should be recognized for this film.

I've been waiting for this film since seeing it in 2006 and was not disappointed. Its wonderfully structured and informative. I think of the film as a "spoiler alert" for those who are still processing their own issues and wondering about their role in such tragedies.

This film is about how gun violence in America, through the first-person narratives of a trio of people involved with guns, is woven into the fabric of our society, and why the causes of gun violence are not just universal, but exist across the country. These are all personal stories that I can relate to. One of my favorite parts of the film is when the filmmaker interviews a few of the victims of the mass shootings in Columbine, Connecticut, and Newtown. He asks the surviving kids what they think the motivation was for their parents to go into the woods, and I was impressed by the answers they gave. They were more and more like this from then on. So while this is a documentary about gun violence, the filmmakers are not just focusing on the case of Columbine, they are also showing that gun violence is not an isolated event, but a part of a much larger problem. At the very end of the film, after they had wrapped up their interviews, the filmmaker asks the three people if they had anything to say to the people who have been watching them. I'm guessing that most of the young people who watched the film did not have many things to say about it either. I'm sure this film has not touched their lives, but at least it did me. Overall, I thought the film was really insightful. If you are looking for something to show people about gun violence in America, I think you will find something in this film. However, if you are looking for something to show people, this film is not for you. It is more about the stories, rather than the research. 9/10
