Although it was never intended to be a full length documentary it was actually a more of an analysis of the life of Pablo Escobar. While it is not perfect the documentary does show the true facts about Pablo Escobar. It is interesting that this documentary was made after his death in a massive drug bust by the DEA. It is a shame that he was the most prolific drug lord in the history of the world but it is a shame that the facts have been covered up for so long. The documentary shows that this guy was a powerful drug lord but there was a lot of help to get there. There were a lot of people involved in the drug trade but Pablo Escobar was the one who really made it happen. I think this documentary is definitely worth watching.

I have always loved and adored the films of the American director, Wes Anderson. I found his previous films, "Rushmore", "The Royal Tenenbaums", "The Life Aquatic", "Mulholland Dr", "The Darjeeling Limited", "The Royal Tenenbaums", "Boogie Nights", "The Fantastic Mr Fox" and "The Life Aquatic" to be a terrific mixture of humour and insight. The King is the best of the three films. The main character, David Brent, is the perfect amalgamation of an innocent, socially inept, but stubborn and self-centred teenager. The King has a great sense of humour and is the only character in the film who is truly flawed, but still very likable. His relationship with the main character, the aforementioned Jane, is the most interesting aspect of the film, and is the reason why the film works. He is the most flawed, yet the most likable character in the film. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and recommend it to anyone who enjoys an intelligent, witty, yet satirical film. A great film!

I have been a fan of Steven Spielberg for a long time. I've seen all his movies, and I really loved them. So when I saw the title of this film, I thought it would be a good idea. I think it is a good film. I like that the movie is a bit different than the norm, and I think the movie is worth watching. I like the fact that the movie takes a different angle. The story is about the people who lived in the old days and are now working in the factory. It is also about the people who were there in the middle of the changes. The stories are different. One is about a man who is trying to bring his son to a better place. The other is about the people who died while making the good old days. I think the movie was really good. I enjoyed it. I liked the different stories. I liked the way the movie is filmed. I like the fact that it takes a different angle on the changes that have happened. I think that the movie is worth watching. It was a good movie.

From a good writer, to the great filmmaker "The King", I was hoping to see more about his life and his work. Unfortunately, the film was incredibly short. There was only a single scene with Bill and some footage of his house. The film was good, but could have been better. This film would have been much better if it had been longer. I am hoping to see more of Bill and his work. I was impressed with the film, and was disappointed in the short length. I would have liked to have seen more footage and interviews with Bill. I would also have liked to see more footage from the other parts of the film.

I had never heard of the legend of King Kong until I saw this documentary. I have watched a few documentaries on the legend and found most to be boring. The documentary on King Kong is entertaining, if not a little too long. The documentary on the first movie is a bit boring too. I would recommend this documentary to people who like to see the original King Kong movies. I give it a 7/10.

This is the first documentary I have seen about the re-development of the St. Louis Blues. The Blues used to be a dominant team in the 1970s. Then they were the last team left in the NHL, and were going through a serious slump. The team was headed to the wall, but still managed to keep their status of the league's top team. This documentary takes us through the history of the Blues, from their humble beginnings to their recent rebirth. It's interesting to see how they evolved, and how their image has changed. I would say that the film is mostly accurate, but there are some parts that are a bit too dramatic and exaggerated. The film also takes a look at some of the players that were part of the Blues, such as Gordie Howe, Mark Howe, and many others. In addition, there are some good clips of the Blues, including some great skaters like Phil Esposito, and Darryl Sittler. Overall, the film is a good look at the history of the Blues, and how they were able to be revived. If you are a fan of the Blues, you should check out this documentary.

I am sorry to say that I have seen the first 3 installments of the King of Kong franchise (some of which I have only watched once) and was thoroughly disappointed. The first 3 movies were great, entertaining, well made and all that good stuff. But this one is just as great but only for the visual effects. There are some things in this movie that I am not entirely sure what they were for and I am unsure if they were intentional or not. One thing that really annoys me is that there is a couple of scenes that are just over-the-top goofy. It's just too bad because I know that it was supposed to be a humorous movie. Anyway, this movie is not as good as the first 3 and I am not going to watch the 4th installment (which I am sure will be much better) but I will definitely watch the next 3 installments.

I had the great privilege of having seen this film at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. It was one of the best films I have ever seen and I was lucky enough to attend the screening with some of the most respected and talented filmmakers in the country. I was particularly impressed with a documentary called "Barefoot in the Park" which focused on a group of homeless individuals living in a park. It was very well done and extremely compelling. It was a very important topic and I hope to see more of these films. I would also like to see more documentaries that focus on social issues. They are very important and I hope to see more of them. This film is an excellent example of a documentary. It is a good representation of what is possible if the right people work together. I would recommend this film to anyone. I also highly recommend this film for anyone that wants to see a documentary.
