There are few documentaries that make the viewer think, yet it manages to cover so much of the political and social story around the world. I recommend this film to any voter. Highly recommend.

What was it, about 10 years ago, that drove you to write such an interesting book? I thought it was about the things that made you laugh. I figured I'd only be disappointed if I didn't laugh at least a little at some of these ideas. Not that I've ever been able to laugh at a book, or at a movie, or at a comedian, or a scene from a film, so this was a novel experience. But I laughed at some things that no one else has laughed at. And the thing is that many other people have to do this same thing, and for the same reason. I had a friend who knew very little about anything, and just brought it up. People who really had a lot to say or take were quiet. Most of the people I've been around have had this experience, and many of those who didn't have this reaction have grown up with good friends who have given it some thought. They have read some of the other comments and some of the things I've written, and some of the things that I've added to it. Most people have either heard me talk about it, or read some of my reviews, or are aware of my views. I don't want to make my opinion known, and I don't want to be labeled as a religious nut, or anything like that. I'm merely describing what I feel makes it funny, and what I think is an opinion of some who have seen it. I think there is some of this being done in public by a lot of people. The movie gives me the time to write about some of these things, but I'll just keep it brief, to the point. I think the movie and book are a nice compliment to one another, and I look forward to anyone who can help me in my search. I'm an atheist, but I am not ashamed of that, and I feel this movie tells a story in a way that shows the qualities that a really educated atheist has to have in order to be open minded, to question things that other people want to have taught them. They're the things that make the rational ones wonder, the ones who think, and the ones who want to make fun of others, and they all have an element of truth in them. I'm glad to have had the chance to see it, and I'm glad it's not all about being religious.

In our modern world the influence of the news media, and especially the information presented in the media, has always been a threat to our country's collective intelligence. We believe that the public will react to what they see on television or read in newspapers because they lack the ability to critically examine information presented in these media. We are happy to say that, for the most part, we are wrong. There is a good reason that this documentary was nominated for an Academy Award. Roger Scruton has done a superb job of investigating the facts and media criticism of Al-Jazeera, and how it works to undermine American media criticism. The members of the Al-Jazeera (Arab-American News Network) network are all American citizens and all know their country better than any other American. They never take their position for granted, and no one has had the best of intentions for decades. Roger Scruton concludes this piece by explaining that the Al-Jazeera network is simply "Al Jazeera for Arabs." This statement is a big part of what the documentary is about. This makes Al-Jazeera the most intelligent Arab-American news network. The documentary never lets itself become preachy. At no point does it claim that Arabs or Arabs alone will benefit from Al-Jazeera. This is all about the perception that Al-Jazeera presents to American audiences. The reality is that Al-Jazeera broadcasts for both American and Arab viewers. The main reason for this is that the Al-Jazeera Network operates on the premise that American television is biased against Arabs. This is why Al-Jazeera has essentially become the English-language Arabic-language version of CNN. The network is "aimed at the American news media and the Arab-American community, and I don't think that is a bad thing." Scruton explains that there are three things that make Al-Jazeera unique. The first is that the Al-Jazeera is a non-governmental network that is paid by the government of Qatar to run 24/7 news coverage. The second is that the network's chief financial backer is the Al-Mukalla Foundation. The third is that Al-Jazeera is a non-profit corporation and was started by a group of Kuwaiti women who are primarily businesswomen and their partners. Al-Jazeera is this non-profit corporation that will never ask for money from its network to produce their news broadcasts. This is not something that Al-Jazeera is concerned with. Scruton concludes the documentary by explaining that Al-Jazeera provides the best level of coverage in the Arab-American news market. Al-Jazeera gives their broadcasts to those who want to watch them, but Al-Jazeera never asks for the source of the information. They simply state the source. This is the same level of coverage that the CIA receives from the media and their intelligence sources. Al-Jazeera is not doing this, but simply giving their broadcasts to those who wish to watch. Al-Jazeera is truly exceptional. You cannot be a network that is concerned with obtaining funding to produce their news broadcast without constantly going to the media outlets and raising money to support their network. You simply cannot build a network and continue to work to create news when your production does not need funding. Al-Jazeera is unique and has been able to survive and thrive because of this commitment. It's not about money, it's about power. The audience at Al-Jazeera is unique and it is this unique audience that drives the news media to continually work harder to become better. This is why Al-Jazeera is an amazing news network. Al-Jazeera is perfect. It is a great news channel. It is also the most powerful news network in the Arab-American news market. The Al-Jazeera Network should be seen by all as the news media should be seen.

What a great piece of work. This film really speaks to anyone who lives their life on the "edge". This film gives you the power to decide where you want to be in your life. It has a lot of messages, but there are some really powerful messages hidden in there. Most of the messages are from people who are in their 20's and 30's. It is a long film, but the messages are hard to miss. I think it is worth seeing.

For those of you who just want to hear a review of a documentary, or just want to know what's really happening in places like Iraq, or the Basque Country in Spain. This is a must see. I can't believe so many people didn't hear about this film before. The setting is not Hollywood, but real, and like I said, sometimes real things happen when you watch a documentary. I liked the idea of seeing the stories of a few of these people, not just talking about the facts but making the viewer think. From what I saw, I was glad to see people weren't made to judge these people in a negative way. This is a first for a film. It reminds me of another documentary, which was the "Duel" - an 8 year old boy tells the stories of the people involved in the famous football game. That movie won a couple of awards and inspired me to see what movies can do, and inspire you to go on a journey with a real documentary. I loved this one.

I'm a big fan of documentaries. Usually I just watch them to see how a subject relates to the world around them. I'm glad to say that my interest in this one was so immense, that I watched it until the end. With a simple premise of "God is Dead", this documentary flies the flag so far that it makes one wonder what "God is Alive" would be like in a documentary style. It's an idea so strong and obviously viable that it'll probably never be fully realised or it wouldn't have been shot at all. As well as the very strong points I felt, this documentary has some really powerful moments. There's a particularly powerful argument made against religion as something that's so strong that it just feels like a bunch of people trying to blame God for everything that happens in their lives. Of course I'm not going to deny that the argument itself is somewhat weak, but this documentary makes it so so. We have people taking it on the chin in front of their families and friends and most of the religious people have said something like "I didn't really believe in god, but this documentary proved me wrong". You hear people actually telling each other how they feel about this documentary. Even people that are no longer religious, like the person that went to see it with his brother, have said how powerful it was. I feel like this documentary would have been more powerful if it were released in 2008, but I'm glad it's being released now. I don't think it's a film I'll ever forget, and for people who think it's weak, I can guarantee you that no matter what side of the fence you're on, you'll enjoy this documentary.

Even without knowing anything about the Danish empire, this documentary is an eye opener. Seeing firsthand some of the ugly realities of modern-day Denmark, makes the viewer want to see the ways in which the empire affects others in their own country. A great documentary which presents what the government of the day did, but by no means tells us how they thought of it. The images are not necessarily of the best quality but they do convey a sense of horror and regret that it was so easy for their soldiers to do things that should have brought their respective governments into question, for good reason. One is reminded of the "American boys of the Navy". There was a time when the soldiers of the U.S. Navy were required to sign "Report of Conduct" forms stating that they were only "responsible" for their actions. Some did, some didn't. More than once, the documentary tells us that the soldiers signed such forms when they were still doing their duty to the U.S. Army. Just another side note, it's still legal for the military to kill civilians, under extreme circumstances. It's considered a "merely" minor offense in America, but if you do it enough times, it can result in you being court-martialed. Some of the facts may be disturbing to those who have no idea about Denmark. It should also be noted that these facts were presented in a way that is so factual that it is hard to imagine it could be otherwise. By all accounts, Denmark was a small country during the 20th Century. Perhaps their accomplishments may not be recorded in any historical record, but it does show what their citizens were and that it took many brave men, women, and children to fight for that country and to contribute to the development of the nation. This documentary is so incredibly well made that it's hard not to be swept up in the story, especially when it begins to present some disturbing facts about Denmark. It's certainly not "packed with drama", but it should not be overlooked.

This is a very interesting movie, and I was really surprised. It is clearly designed to attack the Washington establishment, and the views that it has about Iraq and other world conflicts. However, it is a very important movie and worth seeing. You see a lot of the same talking heads, the same talking points, the same talking points, and the same talking points over and over again. There are many points that could be made about the politics of this movie, but I think the most important points are the ones about the US government's role in the rise of the terrorist threat. I think it is important to have a movie about this, because it shows how the US government is complicit in the rise of the terrorist threat. It shows that the American government is involved in the Iraq war, and it shows that the US government is involved in supporting the worst of the terrorists, the Al-Qaeda. This movie should be seen by anyone who is interested in politics and the US government. It is a good movie and it is important to have it.

I have been to several of the film festivals that this film was in and I think the best film of the bunch. It was the best documentary I have seen in years. If you are a parent of a young child that is dealing with ADHD, you should see this film. It will give you a better understanding of what the disorder is and what you can do to help your child deal with it. There is a lot of misinformation about ADHD and if you watch the film you will see that it is not as bad as everyone is making it out to be. It is true that the disorder is severe, but it is also true that the disorder is not that severe. If you watch the film, you will see that there is a lot of misperception and you will learn a lot about what the disorder is and what it does. I would recommend this film to anyone that has ADHD and wants to know what it is and what they can do to help their child.

This film really gets your mind off of your problems and brings you to a place of compassion and acceptance. It shows how we as humans can be selfish, self-centered, and ignorant. The film talks about how our opinions and ideas can influence others, and how our actions can affect the lives of others. It talks about how we can get a wrong or wronged idea or thought, and then repeat the wrong idea or thought over and over. It talks about how our opinion can influence our actions and the world around us. The film ends with a message that we can all learn from and look at life from a different point of view. It ends with the idea that we can learn from each other, and the way we can be better people. I recommend this film to everyone.

I enjoyed this film, and even more so this documentary because I am a veteran and have seen the war firsthand. The war is still very painful to my mind, and I was a little reluctant to watch this movie, because I was afraid that the filmmaker might make me feel inadequate, which he didn't. I am glad I watched this film, because it left me feeling better about the war, and made me appreciate that it is over. But, to those that think that the movie is misleading, I don't think so. It is just a description of what we saw. I think it is very unfair to put out a lot of negative comments about veterans, and when they are getting treatment, when they are in the Veterans Affairs and they are getting help, it is a very hard thing to do. I think it is time for this movie to go on a bit longer than it does. I think this should be about six to seven hours. I think if you are going to make a documentary, make a documentary that really goes to what we experienced and how the other side feels, and when it comes to how the "emperor's new clothes" are, that the viewer really needs to see how the veterans felt about this situation. I think that would make it really interesting.

It's hard to believe that a film made by an environmental organisation could even get funded. I watched it online, and it was surprisingly well done, making a strong argument for the importance of our environment. There is just one small problem: it doesn't convince me. The film is all talk, so to speak, but has no punch. The viewer knows the big points are going to be missed, but the film itself cannot convince you. There are many things that we should be doing better for the planet - maybe more research, better use of our limited resources, etc. - and that the film does not say much about. We should be taking steps to get better data, so we can understand how bad it is that the climate is changing. But there is no real discussion of the big picture. It's a good example of a film that gets the message across but leaves you with a bad feeling about the issue. The story is mostly about the evidence of our already diminishing health, but I got the feeling that this was a money grab for the producers. I'm not sure that is a good thing - I think it should be helping the environment and the viewer should be informed. Instead the film talks about air pollution and greenhouse gases. If you are an environmental activist, that might be a good thing, but I think we should all feel a bit better. There is a strong emotional attachment to the film, which is often explained by the fact that it is produced by an environmental organisation. But the film is not really about that. It is all talk and not much action.

This is an excellent documentary on the life of Malcolm X, the most controversial and important civil rights leader of the 1960s. It is a must see for anyone interested in the issues that Malcolm X fought for, and it's interesting to see his life from an outside perspective. Malcolm X was an amazing man, who is so well known for his personal life and his public life, but his life was about many things. One of his most important beliefs was that black people should be able to speak openly about the oppression that they were facing, and be able to freely express their opinions, and the film is a great demonstration of his beliefs. It is a great look into the mind of the man who led the civil rights movement, and shows how he was able to overcome his family and enemies, and ultimately, to become a leader in the civil rights movement. This is a must see film, and a must watch for anyone who is interested in the life of Malcolm X.

I personally have a long list of movies I would like to see when I grow up. Not only is this an excellent documentary about the documentary but it also offers us another facet of the culture of drug abuse. Documentary is a genre that has always intrigued me. Not only do I wish to take part in documentaries but I also like to learn a bit about what goes on in the world. This is what I got from it. I feel like everyone should watch this movie at least once. I can tell this is a good movie because I felt like I already knew a bit about the topic. For example, I did know that the famous Mr. Smith character, Mr. Brown, had a problem with drugs. But, what I didn't know was that he even had a part in a documentary. I felt that the main focus of the documentary was to show people how drugs were used as a way to cope with their own problems and not as a way to keep the problems at home. That was actually what it was. I also thought that the documentary was very informative and gave me something to think about. I can say that this is a good movie for anyone to watch. You will learn about the drug abuse, how some people were affected by it and how the police reacted to the problem. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for more information and to anyone who loves to learn something.

I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival last week. It's really a very good film. It doesn't have the sexy and mysterious nature of a movie like "The Matrix", but it has a much more intimate feel. The style and the acting is very good, especially the first person narration. The idea of people being forced to be witnesses, and how the truth is buried for so long, is a real eye opener. I think the film really succeeds in making the viewer feel a lot of things, and I think it really deserves a wide audience. I think it's important to have a film like this, which has a lot of deep and meaningful messages. I think the film is a lot more than just a movie. It's a very important film. So, go see it, and if you have the chance, you should also see "Beowulf".

After watching this film for the first time a few days ago, I felt as if I had just witnessed something that has been on the minds of hundreds of thousands of people. As a general rule, documentaries are not something that you get to watch a day in a row. They take a long time to digest. But with this film, the film came to life for me. I was not surprised at all when I watched the film because I knew what I was getting into. I'm a student of psychology and psychology is my first love. This film gives us a window into the lives of the people that we normally don't see in the news. I can't say enough good things about this film. The characters in the film were so well written, you just wanted them to win and that was very satisfying. The story is also very interesting and I was not bored during the film. The production values were very good and the music was very well done. Overall, this is a film that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a great film.

*POSSIBLE SPOILERS* I enjoyed watching this documentary on a rainy day, I had thought about the topic of PTSD as I had been through some PTSD myself. It starts with the average symptoms that people experience in a relationship and we are gradually led into the relationship that might have a link with PTSD. Throughout the film we are exposed to those people that are struggling with PTSD and we are also exposed to some of the mistakes that those that are in a relationship might make. Throughout the film the group of people that are dealing with PTSD are provided with a lot of the information that they need. They also have the opportunity to ask the questions that they want answered. The group are very open and honest with each other and share their struggles with PTSD and their answers are rather positive. They are able to get some of the answers that they are looking for, and are able to feel that they are in the right body for what they are going through. The documentary also shows us the reactions of the people that are having problems, from the happy, to the sad, to the enraged and even the angry. The angry and the anger that these people display is really brought into focus by the ending of the documentary. I personally really enjoyed the way that this documentary was presented. The directors were able to let people know exactly what they were going through and provide the knowledge that they needed to cope with the symptoms. I recommend that you watch this documentary and I would like to thank the director for bringing this kind of story to life.

After watching this movie I felt that the documentary was so real that it was very difficult to believe that I had been watching a documentary. All I could think about was that I had just watched a movie that I could have been involved in. That was really interesting, and I have to say that I will be looking out for more movies like this one.

I think I was 10 when I first heard about the story of WO-a-B-L-K-E-R-I-N-G. The only thing I knew about it was that a particularly awful accident killed a good man, and the police never found the man's killer. It was one of those painful stories that could have been really sad, but was not. The story of WO-a-B-L-K-E-R-I-N-G (the film) gets its start in a C.I.A. station, and by the end of the film I was crying. I felt terrible for whoever died that day. It made me want to live my life to the fullest. I was a 20-year-old girl when I first saw the film, and it gave me a strong sense of what I think it was like to be a 20-year-old girl in the late 1970's. The fact that the film really brought the murder back into the spotlight and brought the man's name to the public is quite impressive. And the fact that there were so many other people out there who thought the same way makes the story all the more incredible. The movie was a good antidote to the way it is presented in the news. It was honest, respectful, and brave. It was a good film, and it can be seen as a true story. There are a lot of great documentaries, many of which are too hard to watch. The sad reality is that most people will never get to see a great story like this on the big screen. It is a truly beautiful film, and should be viewed by anyone who is at all interested in crime or punishment. This is a movie that should not be missed. 9/10

Overall, the film was very well done and was well told. Having been an undercover cop for the better part of a decade, I was prepared for the reality of the subject matter. There were a few gaps that kept it from being an all out documentary. At one point, I felt that some of the interviewees were doing more talking than they were doing, and there were gaps in what the others were doing. Still, the documentary made a good summary of what actually went on. On a technical level, the film was quite well made and presented. The sound quality was well done and provided a realistic backdrop to the events. The photography was great and the color choices, among other things, were adequate. The editing was pretty good, but it was very well edited to keep it fast and to the point. I did feel that there were a few time jumps in the timeline that took me out of the flow of the story, but other than that, I felt that it was a fairly accurate portrayal of what happened in New York City in the late 1990's. I think that it is also an accurate portrayal of what went on in Oakland, CA in 1997. I did not care for the fact that they were filming in Europe at the same time they were filming in Japan. That was a bit distracting. If you are not a detective or police officer, there is no need to be turned off to this documentary. It is a very well done and accurate portrayal of what was going on in the city of New York in 1997. It is an important, comprehensive documentary that was well done, and well worth your time.

This documentary shows the real story of how a year of trouble and heartbreak was turned into a journey of hope and redemption for her son. The film focuses on the loss of her husband who was killed in a car accident and her son's difficulties in life. The film is a celebration of the son's life, but also his struggle with addiction, which he describes as "the most important addiction" in his life. She brings the story of this difficult son to life, as she describes her own struggle with addiction. The film also covers the reactions of family members, friends, and law enforcement, and how they reacted to the situation. The film also examines the possible consequences of addiction for a mother and son. As we see the aftermath of the tragedy, we see the weight of her grief, and the man she had to turn to for help, she left behind. The film is an amazing testament to how a tragedy can change lives. If you are looking for a movie to watch, and you don't know what to watch, this is a great choice. You will not be disappointed.

I have never liked Tony Blair but I was appalled that the BBC showed it as if it were a documentary, it is not. The BBC is the television equivalent of the CIA. I think the documentary is excellent and I also agree with those who say the BBC is not as impartial as it should be. The interview with the press officer was a very good one. I was shocked that Tony Blair had nothing to say about the IRA, what an appalling waste of his time. I am also shocked that some people still believe that the BBC is unbiased. The interview with the BBC official was very good as was the one with the President of Ireland. I have never seen the film 'The Lobby' but this was a very good documentary. I also agree that the BBC is not as impartial as it should be. I also agree that there are no good stories coming out of the BBC. I am so glad I saw this documentary. I think that the BBC should be a non-profit corporation, like the BBC and CBS.
