The exact location of the massacre at Wounded Knee is still unknown. It was an event that was both horrifying and a stain on the American culture. The government of the time declared it to be a purely Native American tragedy. The US government never did a proper investigation. So we get this extremely controversial documentary about the Wounded Knee massacre and how a film crew made a documentary about it. The film crew was paid well to do this. It is very difficult to find out what really happened at Wounded Knee. This documentary makes you think of how one of the most important events in the US history was so poorly investigated. The documentary also makes you think about how far the US government will go to get their own side of the story. It shows that the US government was willing to do everything to get their own people to be involved with this event. It also shows the small group of people who were willing to risk their lives to help people that they didn't know. You see a lot of people that were willing to do the right thing and put their lives on the line to help the people at Wounded Knee. This documentary does a really good job of showing how bad the US government was at being able to investigate this incident. It also shows how people have been reluctant to help these Native Americans. They were told that it was a private matter. The government should have investigated it and found out what happened. The documentary is very well done. It shows you that the US government is very selective about investigating a certain event. This documentary is a must see for anyone that loves the American history. It will make you think about how far the US government will go to get their own side of the story. It will also make you wonder how much more important this issue is and how important it is to stop the genocide of the Native Americans.

I'm writing this review after having watched this film in a cinema in London. I am a professional documentary filmmaker who has been involved in many other projects with the National Film Board of India. This film has been directed by the National Film Board of India, which I think is a very interesting institution. This film is an expose on the gopi cult of Indian spirituality, which has been running for over fifty years in India. There is a lot of narration by the film-makers in this film, and it helps to understand the way the gopis have been doing things in India. I have been to India a couple of times in my life, and I have experienced the joy and sorrow of these cults. This documentary clearly shows the "light" and the "dark" side of the gopi cult. But the dark side is not always the bad side. The bad side of the gopis is also to be expected. The gopis are very nice people, but there are people who are attracted to this religion because of the way they can live their lives and the way they can live their spirituality. The film-makers show you the rituals, the ceremonies, the killings and the utter sadness and pain that they have caused the people of India. The gopis themselves are very nice people, and the film-makers show you their good side and their bad side. They show you the joy, and the pain, and the ecstasy and the sadness of this cult. But the gopis have always been a lot more than what they are shown to be. This documentary shows you how, in a way, they have been able to "guide" people in their lives. The documentary is very well produced. I am a very active and interested person. I have watched many documentaries and books on the subject of cults, and this film was very interesting for me. I recommend it to everyone who is interested in the subject of cults. It is not only a documentary about the gopis, but it also tells us about the other cults, and the people who are drawn to them. It is a very good documentary for people who are interested in the subject of cults, and I would like to see more documentaries like this one.

This documentary is fantastic. The story of Tiananmen Square and the events that led up to it is beautifully portrayed. The movie is not partisan. It shows both sides, and the government's support for the crackdown on the student protesters is clearly shown. It does not glorify the government's actions, but it does show the chilling reality of that horrific day. In my opinion, this movie is important because it shows how much the government wanted to erase the memory of the event. It shows how the government was desperate to make sure that the tragedy did not happen again. It shows how the people were divided and the government was able to divide them. It shows that the government would rather not be accountable than to answer the questions it posed. It shows the government's fear of being held responsible for its crimes, and how they used the political situation to cover up their mistakes. I highly recommend it to anyone who has had an interest in history.

The DVD has a bonus feature titled "In China", in which a man named "Ritche' Chen" (Lan) gives an interview in Chinese on the camera. This man was the original Chinese translator for the English version of the movie. He tells the story of how he and his mother came to America in the 1930s, and the difficulties they had getting here and how he came to the United States. The DVD also has an interview with an English-speaking film critic, who says that he was stunned to find that "In China" was being used as the title of a film, and he also says that he had not expected that "In China" would be a documentary. The documentary also talks about the historical significance of "In China", and how it was a turning point in the history of the United States. For more information on the film and to see the other interviews, see the DVD at the library. It is also available on the official "In China" website. We rate this film 9/10.

My friend and I watched this on a trip to Thailand, and have been itching to get it out of our systems for quite some time. It's a very good documentary, showing the life of a Taiwanese man who has been living in Thailand for 15 years. He seems to have lost his Asian identity, and is now living as a Chinese in Thailand. It's a strange story, but it's not really a story that needs to be told. It's just a bunch of pictures showing the life he leads, and how he has become a very successful man, with a business that he has run for 15 years. The documentary doesn't shy away from his mental illness, or his social problems, or his lack of language skills. It just shows a lot of the pictures he has taken, and how he interacts with the people around him, and how he communicates with them. It's really a very interesting documentary, that is a good way to see a lot of people's lives, and the people who live around them, in a very simple manner. It's not that interesting, but it's a great way to see the people you may know, and their lives, in a more detailed way. We really liked this film, and it was very enjoyable.

A great documentary about the Chinese who came to the U.S. in the 1920's and 1930's. It is a wonderful movie that will make you think and feel the pain that these immigrants went through. It is very well done and it makes you want to learn more about this great country. The cinematography is amazing and the story of these people is fascinating. I recommend this movie to everyone.

I found this documentary to be quite an interesting and somewhat chilling look at the life of an artist and the struggles he faced in order to create his masterpiece. From the very first moments of his childhood to the last moments of his life, this film gives us a fascinating look into the man's life and how he came to be what he was. From his mother's death to the loss of his father, we get a very clear picture of what he endured in order to become who he was. It also showed us the struggle of the artists who took the risks that he did in order to create their masterpiece. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in film history and the artists who inspired them.

It is easy to get caught up in the rhetoric of the politics of war. It is not easy to get caught up in the rhetoric of the politics of the past. That is what this documentary is about. It is not just a documentary about the history of war. It is a documentary about the history of the people of the world. This documentary is about the people of China in the time of the Taiping Rebellion, a group of rebels who were a mix of peasants, traders, and artisans. What makes the story interesting is the conversation between the people, and the filmmaker gets us to participate in this conversation, both as people, and as citizens of a nation that had to contend with this new, brutal world of war. China, like the rest of the world, was caught in a struggle between two forces. The forces were the Qing, led by a new Emperor, and the forces were the Communists. The people of China wanted to be a part of the international community, a nation that was not a monarchy or a constitutional monarchy. This is not to say that the Communists would not have won the war. They did, but the fact that they were the rebels was not the only reason that they would not have won the war. The Qing wanted a revolution. The Communists wanted to destroy the Qing. The rebels were both strong and determined. In the end, the Qing did win, but not because the rebels won, but because the Communists won. This documentary is not a history lesson. It is a lesson about history, and the people of China, and the history of the world. If you want to know how the world changed, watch this film.

The film is well-made, but the film is highly misleading. The film has several facts that are not true, and I think it is quite unfair to call it a documentary. Some of the facts are, for example, that the Japanese military government gave the support to the "occupation" of China, and that the Japanese military is the enemy. There are many other things that are not true, such as the Japanese military in China was not used in that way in China, the Japanese military did not organize the "occupation", and there is no way that the Chinese people were not aware that the Japanese military was taking over. Some of the facts are also misleading, such as the "black death" in China, when most of the Chinese people had already been killed by the Japanese military. The documentary does not contain any arguments in support of its view that the Japanese military was the enemy, and it does not say that the Japanese military did not support the occupation. It is a very misleading film.

This documentary is one of the most challenging documentaries I have ever seen. As a history buff, I was constantly comparing it to other documentaries on the subject of the Qing Dynasty. This documentary is a masterpiece. It is one of the most thorough and comprehensive films on the subject. I give it a 9 out of 10. However, I would like to see a documentary on the subject of the Qianlong Emperor, also known as the Six Immortals (which were also known as the Five Immortals). The Six Immortals ruled for the next three hundred years, from 1649 to 1848, and were referred to as the Three Young Immortals (or the Three Young Ones). The documentary on the Three Immortals was the most detailed and comprehensive I have ever seen on the subject. It gives an amazing insight into the lives and philosophies of the Three Immortals. I highly recommend this documentary for everyone.

This movie is an important reminder of the evils of colonialism and exploitation, but it also reminds us that we are all human beings and that there is much that we have to learn and forgive. It is also a reminder of the hypocrisy and self-righteousness of the Western world. We can all learn from this movie.

As a Chinese, I like this film. I think it is a story that is very important to be told. It is a story of what the Chinese have been through. It is also a story of how, if they had not made their choices, the rest of the world might have been not so lucky. The film is very well made. The interviews are well done. The locations are also very interesting. I think that this film should be shown in schools and in the countries where the Chinese are living. I think that it is very important to have a film like this in the world. I think that it will help the world to understand the Chinese people better and will make the world understand the Chinese people more. This film is very good. I would like to see it again and again. I think that it is a good film.

A very good film that is much better than the usual anti-war movie. It is very important to study history to understand the way wars are fought. This movie shows the development of a secret unit that fought in WW II, and their operations during the war. The movie is based on the book by J. Michael Miller, which is really interesting. The movie is very well shot and made, with great special effects and music. It is worth watching.

A really very good movie about the brave Chinese student and doctor who was forced to endure the Gulag because he refused to give up his Chinese citizenship. This was not just a movie but an amazing story that actually happened to one of my favorite people. It is extremely sad that such a story still exists and is still alive and well. If this was not the case then we would have been living in a very different world today.

First of all, I have to say I'm a huge fan of the Pacific Rim and I knew it was going to be good. I really enjoyed the first two films and thought they were great. I thought the first film was going to be great as well, but then it was just so much and I thought it was going to be a lot better. I was wrong. This movie is awesome. It is great and it is very, very good. It is so well done. The acting is great, the special effects are great, and the action is great. The characters are great, the dialog is great, and the plot is great. It's really worth seeing. The only bad thing about this film is the bad reviews it got. I don't think I'm going to see this one again. I have to say though, it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. It's so entertaining and it has great action and it has great special effects. It's a great movie, it's a must see, and it's one of the best films I've ever seen. I recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a great movie. The cast is great, the story is great, and the action is great. The movie is good and it's worth seeing. It's really worth it.

I first saw this film in 1999, and it's one of the most moving films I have ever seen. It's been a long time since I saw it, but I think it's time I put it on my DVD player. I think it's very important to educate ourselves on the Japanese role in the 1940s and 50s and the other Asian countries who were forced to build internment camps. I'm not saying it's the only way to get the message, but this is a very important film to be seen by everyone.

I have been studying the history of China since the 1970's, and I have always had a fascination with the country. I have always liked the fact that the country was a place that did not suffer the same negative aspects of history that other countries did. I was very interested in the documentary, and I am glad that I did not have to pay to see it. The documentary covers some interesting topics such as the oppression of women, the history of the revolution, the relationship between the Chinese people and the Chinese Emperor, the state of modern China and its relations with the world, the relationship between the Chinese people and the Chinese Emperor, and many more. I am glad that this documentary was not marketed in the United States, because it would have been a very expensive documentary. I was very impressed by the fact that this documentary was not based on a government official, or the government, but on the people. I do not think that this documentary should be marketed in the United States, because it should be viewed by those who are interested in the history of China, and by those who have a love for the Chinese people.

This is a film that is sure to touch the heart of anyone who has traveled abroad and is curious about the view of life in China from a Western perspective. The film is a mixture of documentary footage of China and interviews with Chinese people who have spent time in Western countries. The film is important for many reasons. One of the most important is that it shows how different cultures interact. The Chinese have a reputation for being hard and mean. But the film shows the different attitudes and emotions that can be experienced in different cultures. We see the difficulties that Chinese people have with using the English language, the difficulties that the Chinese have with their foreign spouses, and the different attitudes of foreigners that can come across the way. The film is well made, and the interviews are well conducted. I recommend this film to anyone interested in a different perspective on life. It is a movie that should be watched by everyone. Many people have told me that they can not watch this film because they have been negatively affected by the film. I don't think that this is true. This is a film that is very important to show to the world.

I saw this film a few years ago and it changed my perspective on a little known episode of the US military's involvement in Vietnam. Vietnam is a topic that most people will not see. This documentary covers the stories of the lives of the Vietnamese people affected by the US war. It is the story of the American soldiers who were part of the U.S. effort in Vietnam and the Vietnamese people who were living in their homeland. The film is a powerful and moving account of the Vietnamese people and the American troops who went into Vietnam. One thing that the film does is tell the story of the Vietnamese people. The film is not a history lesson as most documentaries are. This film is a people's story that is based on a group of Vietnamese people who were affected by the war. The film is told through the eyes of each of the five stories of the story of Vietnam. This is a moving film and I believe the reason I was moved by it was that the people affected by the war are not only seen but are told. The film is a must see for all people and hopefully will spark discussion about the war in Vietnam and its impact on the Vietnamese people.

The documentary "Where Are They Now?" was made in 2009, and it is a fascinating look at the life of the first female astronaut, Sally Ride. This film is a compilation of interviews with various people who knew her, and some of them were even on the moon. It was a fascinating look at the woman who became a legend, and it also shows the political views of the time, and how the Apollo program was a political hot potato. This documentary is a great look at the astronaut who became a legend, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the history of space exploration.

The first half of this documentary is a lot of fun and entertaining. The second half has some really interesting stuff about Chinese history and culture. Unfortunately, that part is a lot of guesswork. You have to pay close attention to the dialogue and the research. I recommend this to people who are interested in Chinese history, but it is not really about that. If you are interested in Chinese history and culture, this is a must see.

The movie was actually really well done and is a must see for anyone who has had a heart attack or aneurysm. The film gives you an inside look at the human condition, how it affects a person, their family, friends, and the health care system. The film was a little slow at times, but the storyline was very captivating and well done. This movie should not be taken too seriously, it is about a real person, not a movie. I think that the acting was well done, and the movie does not give you a wrong view of a person. I think the movie was well done and should not be missed by anyone.

I have been following the story of the Chinese Communist Party since I was in high school. I was only 13 years old when the Cultural Revolution began, but I knew that it was coming. I was at a Chinese high school in Beijing, and we were very conscious of the party. We were very well informed of the political situation and we were very much aware of the Party's suppression of the student movement. The film is very good. It does not paint a picture of the party, but of the people in the party. I do not know what the critics are saying about the accuracy of the film. I think that it is very good. It shows the party's repression of the student movement and the student leaders' courage in the face of repression. It shows the student movement in a very positive way. I think that it is a very good film, but it is not a documentary. It is very much a film about the people, not about the party. It is very much a film about the students, not about the party.
