It's a well-made and emotional film that can be hard to watch at times. I did enjoy it and felt like I had an understanding of the artist. The film looks at Berger's life as a poet, a writer, an actor and a critic. It's a real joy to see him interact with those who admire him and enjoy his music and film. It's amazing to see the progression and evolution of the man. I wish there were more films like this in the US.

I have watched this film twice and thought it was a very moving and worthwhile film. However, it's also a very entertaining film. The film moves at a fast pace, with a few notable slow parts. The acting of the four principal actors is amazing, especially of the actors who played the characters that suffered the most. Many of the dialogs were very moving and I am a big fan of people that are portrayed in this film. The way they relate to each other and the way that they are put through hell in the movie was very touching. I was glad to see that they did not over dramatize any of the suffering. The point of the film was to show the pain that was being put upon them. If you don't like movies that are heavy on the drama, don't watch this film. But if you are a big fan of John Berger, you should watch this film.

This documentary is really excellent. This is the type of thing I like to see because it allows me to see how his work came about and how he was able to channel his energies and his emotions into a vision, a vision that he was able to make into a dramatic and moving film. I was drawn in by the stories of each of the actors and I was able to identify with each of the characters. As a result I was able to really get into the character of John Berger. Each of the actors and their characters are absolutely perfect for their roles and I loved each of the films. I really enjoyed watching each of these films and I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the art of film making. As a film student I was able to learn a lot from watching this documentary and I would recommend this to anyone interested in the art of film making.

It's rare that a documentary on a great American intellectual is as good as the book. It's rarer still when the book itself is as good as the documentary. The Seasons in Quincy is a film that, like the book, takes a look at the life of the greatest American intellectual of the twentieth century, John Rawls. In a way, this film is more about Rawls' life than the book it was based on. In addition to Rawls, the film is presented with some of the great figures of the twentieth century, such as John Dewey, Joseph McCarthy, Robert L. Creighton, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Nelson Rockefeller. The documentary is not just about Rawls' life. The film explores the intellectual milieu of the nineteenth century and the civil rights movement. Many of the film's great moments come from a discussion on how Rawls came to think about slavery and the civil rights movement. It also looks at Rawls' life in the context of the history of ideas, especially in the 1930s and the 1960s. The film is not as historically accurate as one might like, but it is pretty accurate in its portrayal of the intellectual milieu that Rawls came from. Rawls' life is shown in a way that is not only informative and entertaining, but also pretty accurate. The film looks at Rawls' life in three distinct periods. During the 1930s, it looks at his childhood in the mid-1930s, his engagement to Isabel Phillips (Aubrey Proulx), his marriage to Isabel Phillips, and his early years in the '30s. It also looks at his life as a professor of philosophy and the intellectual milieu of his generation. The film is not only factual, but it also shows Rawls' intellectual life in the context of the political struggle of the 1930s. In the 1960s, it looks at Rawls' life as a professor in the 1950s, his support for the anti-war movement, and his rise in the 1960s as a liberal icon. The film was edited quite well and it makes you want to learn more about Rawls. The film is also very good in its treatment of Rawls' life and his work. The film has an engaging narrative and it keeps the focus on Rawls' intellectual life. Rawls was extremely well-known and he had a well-established reputation. Rawls' life is shown as a lot of different stories in the film. The film focuses on Rawls' life and works well in the manner of a biopic. It is entertaining and engaging and there is a lot of historical information and information about Rawls' life that is interesting. This is a great film that is a great read and it is one that I highly recommend.

I'm so happy to finally see the documentary on John Berger, as I had originally avoided watching it because of how I thought it was going to be boring. I am a big fan of the great John Berger, but I wasn't prepared for how rich, intelligent, and encyclopedic this film is. I was especially impressed with the people that were interviewed, and the way they were presented. I was amazed at the many points he made about his life, and how his life affected his work. I was especially impressed with his biography, and how he created a wealth of information and pictures, which made it an interesting and fun film. I'm happy to have this film and I hope that others will see it as well.

I just saw the premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. It was incredibly well done. It shows a lot of the work that goes into making a film like this, including the story and the process of making the film. It also gives you insight into the director of this film, Matthew Liebman. It also includes commentary from the director himself, Matthew Liebman. It was very informative and very well done. The only complaint I have is that the film is too short. I would have liked it to be longer. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in film or wants to see a great documentary.

Suffering and moving, "Suffering and Moving" is a wonderful story of a man who for decades was unable to find any relief. The man, John Berger, knew from the start that he was a gifted artist, but with a disability he could not manage to keep himself in a wheelchair. As the years passed, his condition became increasingly difficult, and one could imagine Berger thought of suicide. As the years passed, his art became increasingly rare, and his disability began to become more and more evident, and it was only when the hospital where he was held for several years was shut down that Berger found a new avenue of escape. The way the film shows him from beginning to end, Berger was a true man of his word, and a true artist who lived his life to the fullest. The film will not be for everyone, but if you like art, and like this sort of thing, then you will love this movie. I would rate it 8 out of 10.

John Berger is the author of over 20 books and more than 20 poems. He was a poet, playwright, novelist, screenwriter and editor of numerous poems and plays, among others. One of his most well-known works is his story of the childless couple living in a rather rundown neighborhood in the 1970's, where the adult was a frustrated mother, and the child was a wimpy teenager with dreams of his own. What was to be a passive child turned into an active and more complex one. Berger is a genius. He is not just a poet, but a playwright, screenwriter, novelist, and editor as well. The stories that he tells are very moving and extremely thought-provoking. If you are interested in American literature and poetry, you will absolutely love this film. The stories are at times quite strange, but the emotions that they stir up are deeply felt. The videos that are used to accompany the stories, the photos that are used to accompany the stories, and the commentary by the author, make for a very well made documentary film. This film was made on a budget of about $1,000,000 and was a labor of love for Mr. Berger. It will not disappoint you. This is a very well-made and well-presented film. In this film, the author does not disappoint you. He is a genius. 8/10

As someone who is working on the same problems as the subjects of this film, I was very glad to see that this documentary is very well put together. The narrator (who is an excellent storyteller) does an excellent job in explaining the history of his subject, and he's able to point out the problematic elements of the film. I was also very pleased with the way that the director, Robert Portman, demonstrated the connections between the ideas presented in the film and the ideas in the book. He showed the various inspirations that he received from his subjects and the connections between them. I also enjoyed the fact that this was the first documentary to be made from a book that was written by one of the subjects. The film does a very good job at showing the historical issues and the problems that they dealt with and the problems that they still deal with. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in working on the same issues as the subjects of this documentary.

This movie was about a number of people who saw each other on the day they met, and had a close relationship that lasted for decades, and all of them wanted to share that experience with the world. If there was a mini-documentary for any of the subjects, it would have been amazing. Unfortunately, this movie was not made, so there is no mini-documentary for any of the subjects. If you are interested in seeing some of the subjects' stories, you might want to check out some of the other "Portrait of a Person" documentaries made about famous people. Unfortunately, the subjects in this movie were not interviewed, and their stories were not told, so I have no idea what they would have told the world about their lives and relationships. I also saw this on the "Comedy Central Presents" web site, so I am not sure if that is the case in the DVD release. Hopefully, this will be made available on DVD. I found this movie fascinating, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in seeing how things work at the relationship level. I think it is worth watching. I do not know if anyone will actually be interested in seeing this, so I cannot give it a perfect score. However, I did find it to be a good watch.

This documentary chronicles the life of John Berger, an American painter who left the West Coast in the 1930s to live and work in Switzerland, where he painted the most iconic of American landscape paintings. Berger died in Zurich in 1973. This is a fascinating portrait of a man who became a symbol of the Western world and the era that produced him. Berger's life and work were shaped by the influence of the Great Depression. His works celebrate the New World, yet he left behind a sense of alienation and discontent in his home country. He had a strong appreciation for the great German artist T.S.E. Hulot, who has since been painted into many of his works. Berger's paintings seem to capture the sense of being in a strange, alien world. The artists who have inspired him are also featured. John Keats, Claude Monet, and Paul Gaugin are among the artists he admired. I found the film to be both entertaining and informative. The interviews with his students and those who served him are particularly interesting. The scenes in the film are wonderfully shot, and the film is well made. My only complaint is the overlong length. It seemed to me that the film could have been edited down to the essential highlights of Berger's life and work. However, the film is well worth watching.

First off, I don't agree with the premise of the movie. I think that the book was a much better story and really spoke to me. I loved this movie because it was actually true to the book. The acting was great, but the editing was too choppy at times. I found it hard to follow. You have to get the flow of the film to follow the story. In the movie, there were a couple of scenes that were edited too quickly. I recommend this film to anyone who likes a good mystery and doesn't have time to watch all the movies. There were a few things I didn't like, but overall, I really liked it. This film was a masterpiece in my opinion.

I saw this at the Seattle International Film Festival. This is a fascinating and funny movie about a professor of creative writing and a young journalist who gets caught up in a plot that will lead to the murder of a great writer. In the process, the two develop a friendship that becomes a lot more complicated and then they both end up in jail. It's not the funniest film I've seen, but it's very well made. The director and the cinematographer are very talented. The film runs about 84 minutes and was shot in Seattle. The music is good. The acting is good. I really recommend this film. I would definitely see it again and again.

The end of the 1960s was a decade that saw the emergence of two prominent figures in American history: John Lennon and Martin Luther King. Born in 1929 and 1945 respectively, they helped to spark the American Civil Rights Movement, and helped shape the social and cultural attitudes that would become commonplace in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1953, John Lennon was a 20-year-old music-studying student in England when he met Martin Luther King, a young man in the Mississippi Delta who was also a radical civil rights activist. They soon became friends, and they shared a mutual admiration for the civil rights movement, which saw Martin Luther King wage the first nationwide campaign to end segregation in America. The two men had strong views on the role of the state in upholding human rights. King's most famous speech was "The Best that We Can Do," which addressed the question of whether the federal government had the power to dictate the civil rights of a nation, and if so, under what conditions. The film followed their friendship and the history of the civil rights movement from their early days as Lennon and King's first public appearances together in England, to their friendships and falling-out over the Vietnam War. The film would seem to be a biography of their friendship, but in reality the subject matter is more about the civil rights movement than John and Martin. This is also the story of how the two men became two of the most prominent American leaders of the 20th century, but also of how their friendship and love for one another went beyond politics. The film also looks at how their friendship shaped their lives, and how the two men could have made a big difference in their countries if they had been not so far apart in their beliefs. The documentary is also a touching look at the relationship between Martin Luther King and John Lennon. Both men had a deep-seated love for one another, and they had a genuine sense of urgency about the need to create change in their countries. But their goals were different, and in their minds, they were on two different sides of the political divide. This shows through the frequent arguments and personal battles that the two men had, and how their differing philosophies on politics and the Civil Rights Movement drove them apart. The film is told from the point of view of two great men, one from the British side and one from the American side. The director, Peter Dale Scott, captured the dialogue of the men's conversations and interactions with their entourage, and also interviewed numerous people who knew them well. All of these interviews are part of the film, so you can see how the film captures the men's conversation, even though it is not always their words that are being spoken. The interviews are very funny, and I was amused by the banter and jabs that each man delivered. The film is very well-done, and it is well worth watching.

Berger is among the most famous composers, and a one-of-a-kind human being who is very much misunderstood. His story is told in a very personal way, which is as if he is telling the story of his life to us, telling us about his relationships with the people in his life, how he works, and his philosophy of life. The main theme is love, and in this movie we are introduced to several other people and their relationship with him. One thing I would say is that this is a very beautiful movie and I would recommend it for people who are curious about the life and work of John Berger. If you don't like music or are not familiar with his music, it would be better to stay away from this movie, but if you are into his music, I think it's very important that you see this movie. I do not think that people who are interested in his music would like this movie, but people who love music would like this movie.

Filmmaker Amy Berg has produced a documentary, which covers the life of the American poet John Berger. Berg is a journalist and documentary filmmaker who worked on the 2012 movie "The Seasons in Quincy" that examined the life of the famous poet. In this documentary, Berg goes behind the scenes of the movie, which covered several months of filming. Berger died in 2010. The film includes interviews with the director, the actors, and other important people who worked on the movie. Berg interviews Berger's son, who is a public relations professional. The film also includes interviews with his daughter, who was also a journalist. The documentary also includes a wealth of archival footage and photos. The film is worth watching. It is a very moving and engaging documentary. Berg is an impressive filmmaker. Her work shows an intimate and thoughtful understanding of John Berger. The documentary is also interesting and entertaining. Overall, this is an impressive documentary that was well worth watching.

This documentary about John Berger's long life in Japan is very well done. It's one of the most well-rounded documentaries I've ever seen about a person I never knew and for that reason, I give it a 9. It's interesting, thoughtful and surprising. The only drawback is that it's a bit too long for a documentary that's only 83 minutes long. However, the last 10 minutes are incredibly well-done and show the good work that John Berger did in Japan. I liked how they showed the different ways that he spent his time in Japan. Some of his early experiences there made him realize that he wanted to live and travel more than he would have. Another thing is that he wanted to travel to America as well and he could have done that, but he wanted to live in Japan. I recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in what he did in Japan.

The individual actors, not the director, were the real focus of this documentary. This is a good documentary because it shows the entire range of John Berger's career. The documentary is a little dated, but it is one of the few documentaries that has the actors from his early films. This film is not all about his music. It is a good documentary because it focuses on his person and his art.

As I mentioned, John Berger was a guy who seemed to have a tendency to commit suicide, so when I read that he was doing a book-length documentary, I figured I might get a little insight into what makes him tick. In this documentary, John Berger takes a pretty deep look at what makes him tick, starting with his childhood, through his years in the British military and into his attempts at breaking out of the English security system, and finally into his current work in the United States. Some of his observations and comments on the different worlds of New York and Paris are just stunning, like when he talks about the way that the French have developed a unique way of living out of their city's security system, and when he goes into the reality of the French people, who are more connected to each other than most people think, which is a world of interconnectivity. What's most interesting to me is that his personality seemed to me to reflect his overall way of thinking, which in turn suggested that if he didn't have a good way of expressing his ideas, he would just say them anyway. So, if you're looking for a documentary that will have you thinking about what's important in life, then this is the one for you.

It is a great pleasure to see the great John Berger, whose work I have been watching for the last thirty years, making an interview. He is the perfect interviewee, for he is in his own time, and he has a wonderful way of describing his own time. It is a pleasure to hear him talk about his life, and the story of his films. I would recommend this interview to anyone who has not seen his work, or is interested in his work. I hope that this interview will be a good example of how a great artist is, and how he was in his own time.

This film is a great look at a very unique man whose work is both inspiring and fascinating. It's full of insights into his life and times, and the film is presented in a very unusual way. For the most part, it's a biography-like document of a man who has a complicated relationship with his art. It also shows how his ideas and his moods influenced others, both good and bad. It's also about the impact of the Vietnam War on his life, and how his work has impacted that war. The most interesting thing about this film is the photography. It's such an incredible job of bringing the viewer into the world of this artist, and it's also beautiful in the way it shows the world through his eyes. This is a great film, and one of the best documentaries I've seen.

This documentary is an amazing insight into the man behind one of the most iconic records in music history, one which changed the world. This documentary does not focus on the music and instead focuses on the man behind the music, John Berger. It focuses on his life, his music, his work, and his relationship with his family. It also explores the various philosophies that he has and the different issues that he dealt with as an artist. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the man behind "The Seasons in Quincy", and also to anyone interested in the music of John Berger. It is definitely not your typical documentary. The documentary is not long, but it is definitely worth watching. It gives an incredible insight into his life, and it gives the viewer a unique insight into the man behind "The Seasons in Quincy". Overall, I would recommend this documentary to anyone, regardless of whether or not they are a music fan, or if they have an interest in John Berger. This documentary is definitely one that I would recommend to anyone. 8/10

The Seasons in Quincy: Four Portraits of John Berger is a fascinating look at the life of the American poet and playwright John Berger. The film takes us through his early years in New York, his marriage to the beautiful Helen Keller, and his years as a teacher in Europe. The film is a wonderful look at the life of a man who was so misunderstood by the public, yet so brilliant in his own way. The film is filled with great quotes from his work, including "If you want to write, write," and "Don't go into the woods to write." The film also has a wonderful documentary style that follows Berger through his career and the various interviews he did with people. The film is also very well-made, with great music, beautiful cinematography, and great performances by the cast. The film is very interesting, and a must-see for anyone interested in John Berger.

This is an excellent documentary about the life and times of John Berger, the artist, writer, and musician. I have seen the film twice and I am still amazed at the images that are shown. Berger was a unique artist and the documentary shows us a glimpse into his world. The film is made up of four different interviews, each focusing on a different aspect of his life. I was especially impressed with the interviews with his daughter and his wife. The interviews are very emotional and poignant. The documentary is also very informative and shows a lot about the time in which he lived. Berger is shown as a great artist and writer and his life is shown in a very intimate way. The film is very well-made and it is well worth seeing.

My wife and I are both big fans of John Berger, and when I heard he was going to be making a documentary I was very excited. I had heard the negative comments and I felt that it would be unfair to do a documentary on one of the most influential figures of our time. It turns out that we were right. This film is more of a biography than a documentary. Berger is a polarizing figure, both because of his work as a writer and his controversial views. Some have said that his work was over the top, but I felt that his writings were often self-righteous and self-absorbed. He had a reputation for being a shallow and self-absorbed man, and I think that he was not able to keep his head above water in the face of the controversy that came with his work. This documentary takes a look at Berger's writing, and his life. The film is quite fascinating, and I think it does a very good job at making the viewer feel like they are a part of his life. It is very well edited, and the film is very well produced. The only problem with the film is that it does not give you a lot of background on John Berger. It gives you a brief synopsis, but it doesn't give you any background on his life, and I think that it is important for a film to do this. In addition, the film focuses on the literary and artistic side of Berger, which is fine, but it is not enough to make the film a great one. Overall, I thought that this film was well done and well worth watching. The only problem is that it does not give you a lot of background on John Berger. However, it is a great documentary, and I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the man. I rate this film 7/10.

I love John Berger, but when I heard this documentary was being made I thought "I've got to see it, I'm not going to miss it!" So I watched it and was impressed, but I had to do some more research. I came across this website and read all the reviews. I'm not going to say this is a good documentary. It is not. It is just.well, it's a documentary. I love John and I love the music, but this documentary has a really poor plot. It just seemed like they were talking about all the songs and how great they were, and how much they loved the band, and how they were sad. I'm not a fan of the band, but I was able to hear the music, and I was able to understand what they were talking about. But I didn't care about the facts. I just wanted to hear them talk about how great their music was, and how great their lives were. This documentary was good, but I would not recommend it.

The Seasons in Quincy: Four Portraits of John Berger is a documentary about the life and work of writer John Berger. It's a rather slow documentary and even the final segment is a bit hard to understand. But I guess that's just the way it is in the documentary world. It is worth watching if you want to know about John Berger and if you like documentaries. And I do recommend it.

John Berger (of the Sputnik and The Washington Post fame) makes his directorial debut with this documentary about his life in New York and Boston. While I'm not sure I would classify this as a documentary, it certainly looks and feels like one. It's the sort of documentary that feels a bit like a documentary, but is much more of a character study of the man. Berger had a fascinating career, not only in his work for the New York Times, but also in his writing. He was the author of several books on art and architecture, and he was also the main architect of the Boston Public Library, and also a co-founder of the New York Times. And in all of this, he was a passionate and principled liberal. This is a fascinating story, and I certainly recommend it.

A remarkable film that takes you to a place that is far beyond any of the concrete images we normally see in films. The documentary tells the story of the writer, artist, and philosopher John Berger. John Berger was born in Russia, but his family moved to Germany and eventually settled in Boston. He studied art at Harvard, then became a prominent critic of political and social matters. In the early 1900s he founded the magazine, The New Republic. Berger was an avid reader of poetry and was interested in history and literature. The documentary shows him in his life, his work, and his thinking, as he contemplates the effects of war, of war-time and of war-revenge. He says that the great wars were about more than fighting. The film was made by David Kestenbaum, who also made "Bourne Identity" and "The Incredible Hulk." He is a very intelligent and accomplished documentary maker. I recommend this film highly.

I didn't expect much from this film. After all, John Berger is a great painter, but this film is just another portrait of him. It is very fascinating to see the art in this film, but I was very disappointed that there was not much of his personal life in this film. Also, some of his artworks are very dated, especially his work with glass. The documentary is also very interesting, but I think it could have been a lot more complete. Also, there were some scenes that were very "painting by numbers". For example, when he was painting with a glass tube. I think that he was very successful, but I would not have minded if there were more of his paintings that were more personal. In addition, the film is very slow, which I think is a problem for this documentary. It's very interesting to see how his life went from painting to being a successful artist, but it's very hard to follow the story. Also, there were a few scenes that I think could have been done better. Also, I think the film could have been more "artsy" and dramatic. Overall, I thought that the film was very interesting and very interesting to watch. However, it's not a film that I would want to watch over and over again.

One of the most interesting things about this film is the way it can make you think about your own life. It's quite a difficult topic to be addressed, but the film is done in a way that makes it easy to see how this is actually possible. I don't think that it is meant to be an argument against religion, I think it is meant to show the influence that it has on people. It is very interesting to see how much Berger's life was influenced by religion, and how much he loved his religion. He has a pretty interesting story about why he went to church, and how he got involved in politics. He also discusses how he has changed as an individual and what he believes about religion and the state of the world. He is very passionate about the importance of religion in his life, and how it has influenced him. I also like how this film doesn't show how much he hates religion. He doesn't go around saying that religion is bad, he just thinks that it is important for the individual to believe in something that is true. He also doesn't talk about how religion has influenced his life. I think that this is very important because it shows that he doesn't hate religion, but he also doesn't think it is important. It also shows that he does not have a problem with religion per se, but he has a problem with the influence that it has on his life. This is a very interesting film to watch because it shows the influence religion has on people. I recommend this film to people who want to see how a person's life is influenced by religion. This film is very interesting and it makes you think about the importance of religion.

This is an interesting look at the life of one of the most influential American philosophers of the 20th century. The documentary is very well-made, and the production value is first-rate. The actors are first-rate, as well, and the style of the film is very "realistic" and "natural". The soundtrack is excellent, too. It really adds to the experience. The images are very interesting, and there are some interesting insights into the life of John and his philosophy. The footage of John in his youth is very fascinating, and he was a very charismatic and influential figure. The documentary is pretty well-made, and the subject matter is interesting. It is a good documentary, and it is worth seeing. It is an interesting look at the life of one of the most influential American philosophers of the 20th century.

This is a good film, if a little slow. There's a lot of personal stuff in it, but I think it's important to get to know the people involved in this documentary. I especially liked the video of the interview with Peter Coyote, the lead singer of the band, the Pretty Things. Peter is the author of the book, "Distant Determination." This is a good film, and I think it's worth seeing.

I'm not a big fan of the actor who plays John Berger, but this documentary did a good job of capturing his voice and his thought processes. He is a person who is full of ideas and has a lot to say about everything from the Vietnam War to the Gulf War. His message is that peace and love are the most important things we can give to our children and that we should not sacrifice them for anything else. I've never seen a documentary that covered so many subjects at the same time. Some of the things he says are funny and some of the things he says are shocking. This is one of those documentaries that is worth watching. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as well.

The title of this documentary, "Four Portraits of John Berger," is a bit of a misnomer. John Berger is not a man who lives by his words, and his writings are mostly verbal. "Four Portraits" is not a documentary. The idea is to show a few of Berger's paintings, and to talk about his creative process, and his political philosophy. Berger's life is in no way about the paintings he has created. This is not a biography. This is a portrait of an artist, and a master of his craft. This is a portrait of a man who has lived a life of constant struggle, and who has often made his art as a means of expression for the great injustice he experienced in his childhood. I was impressed by this documentary, as it captured the essence of the man and his creative process. I was also impressed by the depth of his emotional responses to his art, and his humanistic philosophy. As an art critic, I find that a lot of the artistic work that people create is not a reflection of their own creative processes, but rather a reflection of their own experiences, and the challenges that they faced. This documentary is a fascinating and informative look at the man behind the paintings. For the most part, the interviewees, although their opinions are very diverse, are very honest and articulate. I was especially impressed by the way that the interviews were edited, and by the way that the images were used to help us understand the thoughts and feelings of the interviewees. The only minor criticism I have about this documentary is that some of the images were not very good. The images were great, and they captured the depth and beauty of the subjects, but some of the images were not very good. I was more impressed by the images than I was by the interviews, but still I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the life and work of John Berger.

This film is, simply put, a biography. It was shot entirely in one location in which the photographer was at one time the owner of a record store, and it is narrated by the photographer. There is no attempt to present the photographer as a character. There are no "Boys from Brazil" or "Tenderness of Strangers" segments. Instead, this is a film about John Berger. Berger was a very successful artist who came from a working class background, and he has gone on to be one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. This film is about his life, and is not a biography. That being said, the film is good. It is entertaining and informative. However, it is also too long and I had to fast forward through many of the events. The director does a good job at keeping the viewer interested, but it is a bit too long for what it is trying to accomplish. The film could have been much shorter and more digestible. I gave it a 7 out of 10, and it would be a 7 out of 10 if the film were presented in a more digestible format.

This documentary follows the life of John Berger, the leading political theorist of the twentieth century, who taught at MIT and Harvard. It is well-made and has a lot of footage, especially of his early days at MIT, and interviews with some of his students. It also tells the story of his life in Boston and Cambridge, where he lived and worked. The film shows many of his works and gives his arguments and arguments for the things he taught, which are all good and important. I recommend this film for anyone interested in politics, philosophy, and intellectual history.

This film follows John Berger (played by Michael Caine), who has written, directed, and produced two of the most successful movies of all time, The Story of Us and Four Seasons in Quincy. I'm glad to say this film has the power to touch any viewer, whether they have seen the movies or not. I would recommend this film to anyone, who is an avid film buff or a film lover. You will be touched and moved by this film, and you will feel that you've gotten the whole story. And if you don't like it, you're not a film buff, you're not a film lover. So go see it anyway, and you'll get your money's worth.
