It's not often that I write a comment on a movie, but I feel that I must in this case. My wife and I went to see this movie with a group of friends in the mid-to-late-90s. It was a pretty lame film. I remember we were all bored to tears. There was very little plot to speak of, but we all felt the plot was just "ok" in comparison to the actual story. At the time we saw the movie, we were both married. We were both married for 5 years, and were both new to the whole "junk" and "crap" thing. My wife was divorced and wanted to find out what the "junk" was that her husband was "showing" her. We eventually found out the "junk" was smoking weed and drinking alcohol, and the "crap" was her husband's alleged drinking and lying. We thought that was a pretty stupid plot, and was surprised that the movie wasn't really that bad. It had a few funny parts, but was not a very memorable experience for us. One of my favorite quotes from the movie is from a "cannibal" (unintentionally) giving his "endorsement" of this movie to the reporter. "This is the greatest film ever made."

After reading the book, I was pretty disappointed when I heard that it was a documentary, not a documentary. I thought it was a film of real events, not a film of real people. I was wrong. This movie is truly amazing. I don't know how they did it. I hope they release a DVD. I have no idea how this movie will do on DVD, but this is a must see! It was edited very well. It was great. The only thing I have to complain about is that I would have liked to have seen more of the documentary clips. I also would have liked to see more of the documentary footage, but that is just my opinion. I highly recommend this movie. I give it a 10 out of 10.

As someone who has lived through and experienced the tragic effects of war and genocide, I was compelled to go see this film. This is one of the most shocking documentaries I've ever seen. Not a single person in the room was sympathetic to the Nazis and their evil deeds. They treated everyone as objects. The women were raped, the men killed. All of the characters in this film were one dimensional. It was one of the most disturbing documentaries I've ever seen. I was shocked by the level of evil they exhibited. When the audience asked, "How can it be that there is such a thing as evil?" The answer was not clear. There was no way to explain it. It was just there. I am happy that I went to see this film and that it will be in my collection. I will never forget it.

I have been a registered user of this site since 1997, I have been a part of this community for over a decade. I have seen the great films that have been produced in the last 15 years and I think I have seen the best of them. I have no doubt that this film will be voted as the best documentary I have seen in my lifetime. There is not one single flaw in this film, no flaws at all. It's amazing and incredible to see so many of the same people talking about the same thing over and over again. It's really a shame, because this documentary would have never seen the light of day otherwise. It would have become one of those films that are constantly re-made, but never released. I truly hope that this film will find an audience and will be released on DVD or Blu-ray. This film is so good and it deserves to be seen and I hope that it will find a wider audience. I am always amazed when I see how many people have rated this film a 1 or a 10. This is totally unfair and should not be done. It's completely unfair to rate a documentary with a 1 or a 10 and then go on to rate it a 10.

This film is a must see for any young (or old) man, or woman who doesn't like to be tied down. The reality is that we are all encumbered in some way, no matter how we're born or raised. We all carry some type of baggage. It's just a matter of how we handle that baggage. Whether it's a childhood trauma, an emotional trauma or an occupational trauma. The film is about the effect that this baggage has on a person. The effect that it has on the people around you, and the effects that it has on yourself. We all carry a piece of baggage, and in the end, that piece of baggage can be as big a problem as the thing that we carry with us. This is a movie that you don't want to miss. It'll make you laugh, and will make you feel good.

This documentary is a good starting point for anyone interested in the history of American photography. The same principles that go into making a great film are also at play in the making of a great documentary. This is the kind of film that makes you realize just how important "history" is to a documentary maker. The entire cast of the film was amazing, from the serious to the casual, all of whom were at the top of their game. As an avid amateur photographer myself, I was blown away by their dedication and professional approach. It is a must see film for anyone who appreciates a good history lesson.
