Inspired by the life of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze's past, present and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact of his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze's profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.

This film has been nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture of 2005 and we all knew that before watching it. All the drama, drama, drama. Well I will start by saying I was excited to see this film. I love my heroes movies and to see one of my heroes in film was exciting. But after watching the film, I felt like I was missing out on something. I felt like I was watching the film twice. I felt that it was a film that I missed in the cinema. This film really left me feeling good and I am glad that it did because I would have hated it if I hadn't. I really don't see how this film could be a 10. I guess I am just a simple person who appreciates movies. Anyway I enjoyed this film and will definitely recommend it to everyone who sees it. But if you want something that is just like the cinema experience, this is not it. I do think that some people who have not seen the film will be disappointed because of the length and lack of the drama. I think that most people will really enjoy this film and it will be the best film of 2005. 10/10

I was a fan of both John Travolta and Brad Pitt in the past and I was extremely excited to see this movie. While the story was interesting, I felt the film was too focused on Travolta's character and not enough on Pitt's. I felt that there were too many scenes with Travolta in his character and too few with Pitt. Also, it was hard to tell who was who as the film dragged on and on. In my opinion, if this film was to be made, it should have been much shorter and more focused on Travolta and Pitt. If this film had been made with a shorter running time, I would have been more satisfied.

This film is based on a novel by J.M. Coetzee who is a great writer and director. He co-wrote the screenplay and directs. As a result we get a very realistic depiction of the struggles of black youth, and a great deal of sympathy. I don't know if it's too accurate, but it doesn't feel like the story is based on any facts. I think it's a very human, and believable story. I am sure that if Coetzee's writing style is compared to the work of other great writers like Cormac McCarthy or Flannery O'Connor, then it will be very effective and successful. The film is also based on a true story, and I think that makes it even more powerful. So, this is a good film.

This movie was well made. And it was an excellent story. It is nice to see that America has become more than a country where criminals can live and thrive. This movie was well worth the time. That there is not a great amount of money and of course, the lack of money is the only thing that is going to keep some criminals on the street. They are looking for the easiest way to live, and that is by taking advantage of others. And that is what they are going to do. The lack of money makes them desperate. They look to other countries to feed their greed. And we have all of those countries now. That is why this movie is important.

I'd like to see more movies about this era. I think this film shows the whole different side of Vietnam. In a time when we're all proud of what we did and our experience, this film is very emotional and shows the experience of a Vietnam veteran. It's a story that you will want to see over and over again, even after you see it. I don't think I've seen such a good movie about this time in history.

The film 'Wake Forest' is an amazing piece of work that displays the character development, of our newly selected students. It is an eye opener for anyone who has ever attended a college or university. This film provides a perfect example of the kind of films that colleges and universities are trying to create for the next generation. I recommend that anyone that likes documentaries watch this film.
