I've always been a fan of Michael Moore. I watched Fahrenheit 9/11 with interest. It's always fascinating to watch how a country can change. And I have to say that I was very impressed with this documentary. It was well worth the watch. It's not a complete documentary, but it gives an overview of the history of the movie industry. The interviews were very interesting. I found it informative and entertaining. I'm glad I watched it and I recommend it to anyone who likes to learn more about the movie industry.

It's a good documentary that you'll need to watch twice to fully grasp the context of the documentary. In addition to the main characters being entertaining and funny (though not terribly original), the movie does a great job of describing the history of the people involved in this very interesting and unique story. The majority of the characters in the film are high-profile figures in the film industry, from both big and small production companies. I enjoyed the film so much that I went out and bought a VHS copy, which I will gladly buy again.

I saw the movie in the movie theatre. I really enjoyed this movie and I really hope that it reaches the full potential of this great actor. It was so great to see Billy Crystal and Steven Spielberg working together and the music really makes you feel like you are in the 80's. You will love it! I really hope that it makes the Oscars!

I agree with the first reviewer on this movie. I saw it on the big screen with my parents. It is a wonderful story of how the world came to be, and how it was influenced by people, places and things that were once the center of world history. It is a great movie and I recommend it highly.

I must say that I am a film lover and a history buff. I would have enjoyed this film more had it been advertised as being about the history of Hollywood. The people who made the film, all their lives, were either studio executives, writers, directors, actors, etc. So I expected it to be full of entertainment and fun. My disappointment with this film is that it really is not about the history of Hollywood. The interviews were a bit hard to follow at times because of the slowness of the camera, but that was not the point of the film. In this film, you learn that some of the people interviewed have been part of the Hollywood culture for many years. The interviews were mainly done on their deaths and deaths of their close friends. The film did a very good job at showing how Hollywood started out and was only recently cleaned up. Also, it gave a lot of information on what was really popular in Hollywood. This is definitely not the type of film that I would recommend to people who like the history of Hollywood. Also, I must say that the only people who I saw talking about this film were those who were fans of the music. This was a very odd thing for me. I have no interest in music, but the music in this film was awesome. I recommend this film to people who love the history of Hollywood.

I saw this film at the San Francisco Film Festival and it was an amazing experience. This is a documentary about the making of the first Star Wars movie and how George Lucas, a filmmaker with a very limited budget, managed to create a film that has become a cultural phenomenon. In my opinion, this film is the best film of the year so far. It is an incredible look at the production of this film and the process of how it was made. The film features interviews with actors, directors, and producers. It also includes many interviews with people who worked on the film and the people who created it. It is an extremely entertaining film. I highly recommend it.

I found this documentary to be quite interesting and informative. I thought it was very well done and gave a very accurate representation of the Hollywood of the 1930's. I also enjoyed the fact that it didn't take sides. It didn't criticize or praise one type of movie over another. It just gave a fair assessment of the industry. The documentary also took a look at the effects of the war on the industry, the creative process of the studios, and the Hollywood studio system itself. I thought it was a very accurate representation of the industry and I would recommend this documentary to anyone interested in the industry. I also thought it was interesting to see how the war affected Hollywood in general. I would also recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to see the effects of the war on Hollywood.

I saw this film on HBO, and it was a very good movie. The director did a very good job, and the acting was good, although some of the acting was not believable. I was very impressed with the content of this film. It is very realistic, and the subjects of the movie are not just the usual Hollywood crap. I was impressed with the fact that the director made this movie, and the actors did a great job, although the actors were not very believable. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a documentary about the movies of the 50's, and I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn more about the movies of that time.

A very well made documentary that gives a very balanced view of the history of Hollywood. I have read all of the comments, and the majority of them are very positive. However, there are a number of negative comments that have been posted that I found very disturbing. These comments seem to have been written by people who are either very upset or very confused about what they saw. I am not a film critic, but I can tell you that I have not seen a documentary that has brought more excitement to me than this one. This is the first film that I have seen that has had such an impact on me as it has on many others. I found the film extremely entertaining and very informative. I am sure that this film will become a classic in the years to come. I hope that all of the people who have posted negative comments will take the time to read the reviews posted before posting them. I would like to point out that the negative comments are not from people who are trying to take away from the positive comments. The negative comments were posted by people who were either confused about what they were watching or from people who have never seen a film before. These people seem to be trying to take away from the positive comments. I think that it is a very good film, and I am sure that it will become a classic in the years to come.

*SPOILERS* I'm not going to give anything away, but this movie was very well done. In fact, this movie may have been better than the book. There were a few things that I didn't like, but for the most part I thought this movie was very well done. I think the movie made it more realistic that it would have been if the movie didn't exist. I think that this movie shows how important the movies were to the culture of Hollywood, and the importance of the stars that were in the movie. I think this movie was definitely a good one, and it's certainly one of my top five. I hope that there will be a sequel to this movie. As for the book, I don't think it will be made into a movie, but I'm sure that there will be a sequel. I hope that they will use the same director, because I think that they would do a great job. This movie has a great cast. I think that Tom Hanks is amazing in this movie. He definitely is the best choice to play Captain Kirk, because he is very likable. So, I think that he is definitely one of the best choices for the role. The best part about this movie is the characters. I think that all of the actors are really great. I think that they played their roles very well. I think that they were very believable. I think that they were very good actors. The acting is very good. So, I think that it is a very good movie. I think that it's a very good movie.

This is a brilliant documentary. It is a great insight into the history of Hollywood. It also has a lot of information that is not usually available. It is very informative, and it is very entertaining. The movie is very well done, and the information is presented in an interesting way. It is very well researched. The cast of this movie is very good, and there is no one that I would not want to see in it. The best part of the movie is the information that is given. If you are a fan of any of the major actors or actresses, you should definitely see this movie. I am giving this movie a 9 out of 10, because it is very entertaining and very informative.

This documentary does not touch on many of the major events that happened in Hollywood in the '50's and the '60's. Instead, it focuses on the ups and downs that movie producers had to go through during the Hollywood boom period. The filming of this film really isn't a big topic. It's all about the money, and the risks, and the weather, and the people that worked on the film. While it's good to see some of the people behind the scenes, it does make you feel bad for the people behind the scenes. It's nice to see that Michael Douglas is back in a major film role and Ben Affleck is starting to get a lot of press. However, even with the good points, I still felt like this documentary was very lacking. I was constantly left feeling that I needed to have been in Hollywood during this period. It was not nearly as interesting as I had hoped it would be. I understand that some people have their own opinions about the Hollywood boom period, but I don't think this documentary should be a stand alone piece. I think the other documentaries, including the one by Jeff F. Martin, should have been the start for this documentary. Even though this documentary has its flaws, it still is very worth a watch.

Robert Altman is the cinematic godfather of the nineties, and for good reason. He was a master of composition in the '40s, and has never been better. In the 1960s he worked with director Federico Fellini to write the "Romeo and Juliet" story, and he helped bring the future of Hollywood to life. This is his most fascinating and engaging film, though I didn't always get what it was trying to do. I was thinking that it was making fun of those who were going to the movies, but the movie was not about that. It was about a couple of millionaires (Nicol Williamson and Spencer Tracy) who wanted to make money in Hollywood, but they were also ambitious. They were both business men and wanted to make money. They were the first two people to go on the set of a big Hollywood movie in the '40s. It was their first movie, and they were known as the "Bourne Gang." When they came back in the '60s, they came back in style. They were still working on the business side of things, but they had grown to like Hollywood and wanted to make it the most successful it could be. They wanted to make sure that it was a commercial success. They started to make movies around this time, and that's when they started to do the "Bourne" movies. It was to make sure that the audience was taken away from the theater and taken to the home with a story of someone who was trying to make his money. There was an innocence in the characters in this movie, because there was a "gotcha" moment, and they were willing to make fun of them. It was the beginning of Hollywood taking themselves too seriously. The "Bourne" movies were one of the best things that Hollywood did for a while. There was always something to look at, and I've always liked that. I liked the music, and the idea that the characters were kind of in a state of suspended animation. It was a very dark time, and that's why it was so good. They were always trying to make a lot of money, but also the characters were always trying to make a lot of money. This movie was really about trying to make money and having fun. The films that I think that it's best to watch are "Bourne," "Brick" (1971), "The Last Picture Show" (1952), and "Romeo and Juliet." If you love movies that take themselves too seriously, this is not the movie for you. But if you like movies that are entertaining and make you think, this is the movie for you.

Spoilers - This is an entertaining documentary. But it is very important to understand that while it is excellent at giving a good overview of the issues, it fails to take a critical look at Hollywood and the Hollywood production machine. I am going to go with a more radical view than many. This documentary is not at all about what is really wrong with the industry. It is rather a critique of the reason behind the industry. I think that most people have this misconception that it is all about the money and the exploitation of talent. In fact, it is not just about the money. It is about the money. This is not a movie that shows the "right" side of the industry, or the "wrong" side. It shows that the money is what drives the entire industry. Most people are just looking for a way to make a buck and many will go to extreme lengths to achieve it. Even if they think that they are being honest about the industry, they are really not. It is a psychological game. This documentary makes a good attempt at showing the impact of the money. The documentary does not blame the money for anything, but rather what it can do to the human psyche. But this is a very small part of what the industry does to the people. The Hollywood machine is driven by a man in a suit. The money drives the money. And the money does not do what the machine wants. The machines do what they think will make the money more, and the machines make sure that people are so inured to the system that they do not have any idea of the extent to which it has corrupted the human psyche. The documentary shows how they have done this. The problem is that they show the machines. They are not doing what the machines do. They are not even doing what the machine does. They are simply the machines that the machines created. I think that this is a very important and really good film to watch. It is more about the machine than the machine. It is not a film about what the machine is, but rather what the machine does. And that is what it is doing. But it is a very good documentary, and a really good film, not because it shows what the machine is doing, but rather what the machine does.

This film is a good one to watch and listen to. While not being a film that you will be talking about for a long time, it is a great one to watch and listen to. I was surprised that the film wasn't nominated for an Oscar. It certainly deserves it. It is a good film about film making, not about the films themselves but about the films' makers. I was amazed at how different the techniques of film making were in different countries. I would have loved to have seen the story about the woman who developed the computer for the film and how it changed film making forever. I have heard some pretty interesting stories about people who have used the computer in the film. The film's producer, though, I think, was being a little overly negative. It is not as if this film was only made for the sake of making money. The film was made as a tribute to people who used technology in the movie making process. The film's producer is actually someone who understands the people who made the film. I think that the film would have been better with the film producer's background in film making rather than some newcomer. I think that this would have been more true to the real world of film making than the documentary style film that this film was made. This film would have been better served if it had had more of a documentary feel to it. This film also seemed to have a "Jaws" feel to it. It seemed to me that the director did a good job of showing the film making process. It was interesting to see how different film making techniques were used in different countries. While the film is not an action packed film, it is definitely a film that you will want to watch several times. I thought that the film was well done and would recommend it to anyone who likes to watch film.

I saw this film last night and I was very impressed. I was also surprised by the length. It was an hour and a half long. That is a long time to spend with a film. I would have liked to see more of the characters, but that was part of the whole idea of the film. It is not about a group of people going through a dramatic change, it is about the personal lives of a group of people who make a dramatic change. It is also a documentary, but one that does not tell a story, but rather takes a look at the personal lives of a group of people who make a dramatic change. I think this film is very well done. I have always been interested in the history of Hollywood, but this film really did a good job of getting me to think about the people that made the change and the people that influenced them. I was very impressed. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes documentaries about Hollywood. It is a good film that does not take a lot of time to watch.

This is an excellent documentary about a person who is a legend in the film industry, and is most definitely not to be missed. It is a fascinating story about the rise and fall of James Cameron, who is not only the most successful director of all time, but also one of the most controversial and controversial people. It is also a great story about the legend of George Lucas, who has been working in the film industry for many years and is one of the most successful and influential people in the industry. The movie is a must see for anyone who is interested in film and the movies. It is a story about a man who has been a legend for a very long time, and is certainly not to be missed.

The documentary "Doc Johnson: The Making of the Marvelous Doc" was put together by the legendary director Robert Wise for the Library of Congress. It is a wonderful insight into Doc's life and his struggles in trying to make a living. The fact that the director was not available for an interview was an advantage. He speaks of the difficulties of creating a film with an entirely foreign subject and adapting it for a theatrical release. There is a lot of praise for the photography and effects. The documentary does not feel overly self-important, or even jaded. It does not dwell on Doc's faults. The documentary's very title is a phrase that translates to "the power of the master". It is fitting that the documentary title refers to one of Doc's greatest weaknesses, his low self-esteem. The documentary is definitely worth watching. It will remind you of Doc's greatness, but also his failings.

I watched this documentary without any preconceptions about it and I was pleasantly surprised. The very first thing I noticed was that the doc did not include the sort of people that I associate with the general public. A lot of the conversations were with men with high level positions. At first I was a little nervous about this but I am glad that it was done. I believe that the doc is really focusing on the human element of the people who are giving their time to a documentary. I felt that the two main individuals were good at what they did and so was the doc team. It's a very interesting documentary and I really think that it's well worth seeing.

Lenny's story is an interesting one. He grew up in a home which was full of love and care for all members of the family. The family home was decorated with dolls and a wall full of pictures of children's stories and life experiences. I found it interesting to hear how his family developed, and the story was brought to life in an interesting way. I found it was a bit hard to follow, and I would recommend that you not see this film if you have a history with Lenny. It is a little too complicated and takes a lot of time to understand. I'm sure that there are many stories behind Lenny and his life and that his family have many stories and histories. However, if you do have a history with Lenny and want to see this movie, I would suggest you read the book, which has many details about Lenny's life. It is very interesting to learn about Lenny and his family.
