My review of this movie will be short and sweet. Like the title says, this is about the crime and punishment systems in the US, how they have evolved over time, how different they are and how we are just getting to grips with it all. I have seen this movie at the SXSW film festival in Austin, Texas, and although I was a little apprehensive of it, I ended up enjoying it a lot. It is quite interesting to see the evolution of these systems, how they differ, and how they interact. There are some good insights and many quotes from people who have had experiences with these systems, but the majority of it is in regards to current systems. There is one sequence in particular that sums it all up, and if you get a chance to watch it, do so. After you see the scene, you will see how people live and what it is like to live under these systems, and you will see that the same sorts of things that happen to others in the real world are happening to us too, but in a different setting. The film is also a very insightful look at why people feel the way they do, and the problems that are brought about when this happens. So if you are interested in a good look into how people feel about these systems, and what it is like to live under them, you should definitely watch it. Otherwise, the rating of 6.2/10 may be a little bit too generous. But if you are open to the idea of different systems, the natural and human-influenced nature of these systems, and the way that people act in their situation, then I think you will really like it. So in conclusion, this is a very good look at the current systems, and an excellent introduction into the different ones that exist today.

At the heart of this movie are its characters. Not so much a story, but a character study. In what is perhaps the best movie about a misunderstood character, although far from his typical best, we find both Matt Damon and Julia Roberts working well with their roles. You can see the tug of war between the two sides, and the desire to see justice done, and the resentment of not being in the right. It is an interesting character study, and does a good job of showing the psychological and social toll on both sides of this one-sided argument.

In "Prisoner of War" director Michael Haneke presents a rare look at the concentration camp system of Nazi Germany. The film is a beautiful look at what happened to the Jews, but there are many other points that I would recommend it for. Haneke does a great job of staying with the Holocaust and not sensationalizing it. He also does an excellent job of showing the people, but never showing the atrocities, which are just as important. In the film, there are some beautiful images, like the scene of the children learning how to build a watermill or the children sitting on the table eating their candy. But he does not show many people being killed. There are one or two moments where it is shown, but nothing too graphic. There is one photo of a man being ripped apart, but it is only for a few seconds. He is not shown killing anyone. The reason I recommend this film is because it was a very personal journey for me. I did not know any of the people, or see any of the atrocities, but I got very close to the Holocaust, and it affected my family. I think that the audience will also be affected by the film, so the Holocaust is never left out of the film. This is one of those films that could only have been made if Haneke were not making it. I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did.

You know the story: young people at a center of poverty fight to make it through the brutal system that the world has forced upon them. It may not be a life changing experience, but it is very much worth the effort. It is worth the struggle to say no to people and situations you know are bad. Even if you are not of the age to know the impact of those experiences, the intent of the film is to make you realize that there are people like that in the world, and that you can do something about it. If you have a daughter or sister, watch this film. It is extremely hard for parents to do anything, because their children are living in a world that may not be so bad, but it is not good enough to get them to do anything about it. That may be why the parents are fighting so hard to bring their children up to be better people, to be better role models. We see that this world has its problems, but there are many other things in life, things that have nothing to do with people, but everything to do with society and how it is used to control us. It is worth watching this film. Not because it will make you think or teach you anything, but because it is an example of how one person can change the world for the better. A high point of this film is the discussions the young people have. Most of them are just kids, so it is hard to relate to the adults, but they are able to explain in a realistic way why and how the people they meet are treated this way. The movie is very well written, and even though some of the things that happen are a bit exaggerated, you can still see that it is real. Some people in this world have problems, but those problems are problems that are being helped by the society. It is not just for the children, but for everyone that knows the problems in this world, it is a lesson for everyone. It is a must see movie. It is not so much a statement about the world, it is more about how people act when they see problems in the world, and how the world will try to get them to act and be the way it wants them to be. It is a great way to teach those kids to treat others in a better way. It also teaches a lesson about morality.

It's interesting to see the state of the art technology in the future, and the social changes that have occurred as a result. What is interesting is how the movie has been completed with the participation of the participants themselves. It is a beautiful experience.

I enjoyed the documentary in itself but felt that the film did not do the documentary justice. The movie concentrates on the horrendous crimes committed by the Jemaah Islamiyyah and how those were committed in the name of Islam and how a small group of extremely violent fundamentalists and drug dealers with drug money set out to capture and kill those involved in the Baha'i religion. While it does provide a great amount of information about the atrocities committed by the JI, there is no way to present this with justice on the part of those involved. For example, the viewer would not have been able to have a good view of the house the Baha'i's lived in. If the movie showed the interior of the house, it would be impossible to see what they lived in. The movie fails to present a balanced view of the Baha'i's and their violent crime spree. The video director could have shown the Baha'i's that lived in the house and told the viewer a true story that went wrong on their part. I also felt that the narrator was a little too much to ask for. While he was trying to provide a perspective from a good place in the story, his voice seemed to be superimposed over what was going on. If a movie is able to present both sides of a story, the narration should not be in a different voice to match the situation. For example, the narrator should not be telling you the background of a story in a different voice to say, "I am trying to make sure the viewer understands what I am saying." It seems as though there were many reasons for the narrator's voice to be different. To be fair, the narrator did tell the viewer the story but his voice was different. I think this movie would have been better off with just one voice for the narrator. I think it would have been much more effective in a more balanced and less superimposed manner. I would recommend this documentary to people who are interested in the story of the JI. It is well worth watching, but it is a little hard to find.

A very good documentary, and it's hard to find any movie that will touch you like this one. The concept is very difficult to understand, but it will be very interesting to you. The movie is about the criminal justice system in a particular country, which is very similar to the USA. I am surprised by the amount of information that is presented here. I think that this is a very important movie, and I am very glad to have seen it. I hope that it will be released on DVD.

This was a very interesting documentary and i was very disappointed that there wasn't a movie about it but it was still very interesting. Although the reasoning behind the punishment was weak, it was still interesting to see what it was and why was it done. Another good thing was that there wasn't a lot of violence used in the documentary and the director did a good job at showing the psychological effect that the punishment had on the people involved in the crimes. Overall, the director did a great job at telling a complex story about a difficult subject and it was great to see the outcome of the director's attempt.

This is not the talk of the town, nor was it intended to be. For me, this documentary was a well-made piece of work, with very clever interviews with not only film critics, but also of the directors, actors, and writers of some of the major films. The reason I wanted to see it was because I am a big fan of Ang Lee's film, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," and I had seen a lot of comparisons between the two, and because I was expecting a similar tone of conversation between the film's directors. I was not disappointed. There were three directors interviewed in the film: "Bill Murray" (the Canadian), "David Fincher" (the director of "Fight Club"), and "Uwe Boll" (the writer of "Magnolia"). All of them talked about the significance of the directorial styles, the way the films were made, and the strength of their craft. It is as if each of the film's directors had a major vision, and the key to it all was the passion for their craft, which, again, I felt, was the same in "Crouching Tiger." All three filmmakers, and director of photography "John Toll" were very proud of their work. It is as if they wanted to help other filmmakers, as well as themselves, learn from their style. These conversations made me realize just how much I enjoy the work of my favorite directors. It is fun to hear them talk about their filmmaking and their films. I also have to mention the cameo appearance of "Tom Cruise." He was, of course, a very important part of the discussion, and did not disappoint. I believe that it is important to have this discussion with the films' directors, because without it, a filmmaker's personal views will not be shared with the people who want to know what their work is about. This is not a matter of taste, because it is the views that determine a filmmaker's impact on the film industry, and how his work affects people. I highly recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of the works of the major directors. I thought the views of these directors were very interesting, and that is something I hope all filmmakers will consider when they begin to produce their films.
