This film has more plot holes than any film I've ever seen. You get a sense of the drudgery and helplessness that the government has made the whole nation feel. The director fails to explain why the wife and daughter are so attached to the cult leader and why they remain so devoted to him. At times, the director, David Nicholls, appears to be trying to set the record straight by suggesting that the cult leader's mother was once a nun, but that she died when the family moved to the U.S. In addition, the wife and daughter are shown at times to be completely ignorant of the religious beliefs of the cult. Nicholls and his assistant, Chris Menges, seem to have a complete lack of understanding of what constitutes a cult, and there are some questions raised by the director as to why they are still in the cult, and why they have not moved on with their lives. It would have been interesting to see the cult leader's story, but that would have made the film too long. It is a must see for people who want to know more about cults, especially if they are from an East Asian country.

This is a superb documentary. It is not just a documentary, it is a great tale of life and death. The story of one man's battle with AIDS is told in the most moving way. This film makes me cry because it shows the struggle of a man who was "born a killer" and was overcome by the disease and it's devastating effect on him. Although the AIDS virus has been in the news for many years now, this is one film that will be remembered for years to come. The film is quite short at only 78 minutes and contains some extremely important information about the disease, the treatment, and the medical care available to the public. If you want to know more about AIDS, this is a documentary for you.

The story of the troubled life of Australian comedian Peter Serafinowicz (Benny Feild) as an Australian on trial for child rape. He was never charged with a crime in the first place, and has always denied the charge. The film starts with the trial and then goes through the years of his life as he works in a bordello, tries to write his own play and begins to speak with a French Jewish woman. The story seems almost like a musical, but there are several aspects of the film that are interesting. The main story is the child rape case, which is very hard to watch. The film has a great soundtrack, especially the singing of Joey Waronker and other talented Australians, who have a great way of making the story come to life. The film is mostly a musical, and it does show a great deal of love and respect for the German-speaking side of the world. It is a beautiful film and it is very interesting to see the darker side of Australian culture, especially since the first part of the film is so dark. It was a very touching film, but it was just as painful to watch. There are a lot of disturbing images in the film, but it is important to see that the filmmaker is trying to show the crimes of a pedophile. The movie has a lot of flaws, especially the fact that there is no clear end to the film. The film ends on a whimper, and there is no clear explanation as to what happens to Peter. I would say that the movie would have been better if it was not made at all. It is not a good film, but it is an interesting one.

I have seen a lot of documentaries in my time, but this one takes the cake. It really shows how the music industry really works and how the majority of artists get screwed over by the record companies. This is definitely a must see for anyone who wants to see the big picture. It also goes into a lot of other important things like how the music business has changed over the years. If you like music, you will definitely want to watch this.

If you are a fan of music, or just the music business, this is a must see. We go behind the scenes of the musical-heavy and highly successful Hollywood musicals of the 1950's and 60's, like All in the Family, The Sound of Music, Gone with the Wind, Big, and West Side Story. All of these films were made by big budget Hollywood studio executives who had a bit of a controlling attitude. I think it is a shame that so many film critics give Hollywood a hard time about how they create their movies. Maybe it's because the production companies are paying for most of the film critics' salaries. When the production companies make a film, the artists pay to attend the film premier and are the ones who pay the big bucks. I can't help but think that the "big" critics are just being greedy, because these people should be more appreciative of the movies that they get to see. The biggest mistake that many of the critics made was not paying enough attention to the characters and the stories. All of the stories are about how one person gets the opportunity to create a film. The characters in these films are the ones that have to live the film and they are the ones that should be showing their appreciation. I think that these films should be re-released and be shown to the public again because they are amazing. I think that it is a shame that these films are not being seen more by the public. I do hope that Hollywood will create a special program for these films to be shown to the public again. I think that the next time that Hollywood will create a special program for these films, they should put it on for the next time that these films are shown. These films should be shown on the big screen. I think that the next time that these films are shown, they should be shown on the big screen, because they are great films.

This is a well-made documentary that looks at the struggles that stem from a woman who died of AIDS, and how her children and a couple of other individuals deal with her death. It is not necessarily a documentary about the lives of the three women, but rather how they deal with the tragedy of the death of their mother. In the documentary, the filmmaker discusses the connection between HIV and AIDS, the myths and the facts about the disease, and how many people are affected by this disease. There is also a look at how to support one's loved one and the various ways that people deal with the disease. It is a well-made documentary that covers the issues, but it does not have the emotional impact of the other documentaries on this topic.

For all of the critics who said this was a "mis-en-scene" of "Donnie Darko," well, it was more of a spoof of those films. I am happy to report that "Kissed by God" is a solid 90 minutes of entertainment, even if it is an adaptation of a British stage play that was created by an American. There were a lot of positive reviews of this film that were probably just people who were so jaded that they could not take a joke. It's not a spoof of Donnie Darko, it's not even a satire of the British theater. It's just a funny and entertaining film. A must-see for anyone who likes comedy.

A very moving and informative look at the evolution of a music icon, Dean Martin, from boy to man. This is a fascinating tale of a legend. Martin had a large-scale drug addiction at the beginning of his career, and ended up dead after an overdose. His story has become a very famous one, and his ashes are scattered in Israel. A very touching story, told in a non-spolier way. The ending is perhaps a bit abrupt, but it serves the purpose of setting up the next part of the documentary. The rest of the film is a mixture of interviews with people who knew Martin and are still very close to him. This gives a sense of closure to the story, as well as a sense of recognition of the man. It's a very powerful and sad story. The narration, which is also the storyteller, is very professional and very easy to listen to. The interviewees are very entertaining, and they all give an interesting insight into what was going through their head at the time. There are some aspects of the film that make it not as effective as it could have been. The production values are very good, and the editing is very well done. However, some of the interviews and the editing could have been improved. For example, when Martin was still alive, he spoke to a number of his ex-wives and other close friends. They all had very little time to share their feelings. It would have been more effective to hear more of the things they had to say about him. In the end, I think that this film is very much worth watching, and it will have you thinking about Martin's legacy.

I am surprised by the high rating of this film, I saw it at the annual film festival of the Irish Film Council. I was surprised to see that the majority of the audience was either Irish or British and that there was a good mix of film genres. The Director who made the documentary had no agenda and was not trying to put a political message in it. It was a very personal story. I think that it is one of the best Irish films ever made. It is based on the story of Charlie Storrie who is a recently divorced man who is working as a restaurant manager in America. One day, he is offered the job of being the chef of a restaurant by a wealthy young woman. He is invited to stay with her family for a while and she starts telling him that she was molested by a priest when she was a child and wants to tell him what happened. He is shocked to find that he has been in the same town as the young woman who was abused by the priest. Charlie meets the man's family who are sympathetic to his story and wants to know more about his mother and how she died. He takes a tour of the young woman's home and finds that she was abused by the priest and they were both murdered. He finds out that her brother was in the parish where the priest was from and he was the one who molested her. The family is very sympathetic and wants to know more about what happened to her and if they can get more information. They want to know if she will ever forgive him. When Charlie comes back from America he finds out that the woman has died and has no memories of the abuse. He decides to tell the whole story to the woman's family. When Charlie meets the woman's family, he finds out that they are very poor and they are very frightened. They ask him if he is going to stay with them for a while and he replies that he is going to try to get information about what happened to his mother and why the woman killed herself. He is told that there is nothing he can do for them because there is no evidence that the priest was guilty of the abuse and he cannot get the evidence that he needs. They tell him that he is being very selfish and he should go home to his wife and son. He decides to stay with them for a while but they do not accept his help and they decide to kill him. The man who is his brother and the man who molested his mother all go to prison and the woman who was his mother is killed. Charlie decides to get the evidence he needs to help his mother's family. He finds out that there is a documentary film maker who has been making films about the sexual abuse of children by priests for the past 20 years. The man who is his brother and the priest all turn out to be gay. The film maker and the woman who was his mother have a very complicated relationship

This documentary, told by the actress and director, is about the lives of a group of gay friends in the 1980s and 90s. In my opinion, this movie was an important and interesting study of the gay community in New York City. It showed us that gay people were much more aware of how to deal with discrimination and discrimination. It also showed us the pain and loneliness of these gay friends and how it affected them. I think this is a very important movie and I recommend it to everyone who wants to understand the gay community in New York City in the 1980s.

I agree with many of the other comments regarding the quality of this documentary. The fact that it's based on actual events and the story behind them are much more interesting and compelling than the film itself. It's a very raw, candid look at the events of the murder of Sharon Tate, and one that is definitely not for the squeamish. This is not a film you'll want to watch just because you love 'Oscar winner' Sharon Tate or have been close to her. It's a raw, true story that takes you into the dark recesses of the mind of her killer, Charles Manson, and reveals how a man with little to no empathy, no empathy for the victims of his murders, and no empathy for the general public, was able to become the man he was. In a sense, the documentary also tells us the horrible truth behind the Manson family. The most shocking aspect of this documentary is the fact that it is based on real events. The movie is true and very well done. It does not try to cover up the crimes of Manson or the terrible events that happened to Sharon Tate. The events are told as they happened, not as a history lesson. If you want to see an Oscar winner film, see this film. It's a documentary that you will not want to miss.

It's a great documentary about some of the best artists of the 70's. The only thing I did not like was the fact that they tried to make a "Citizen Kane" movie for music. It was nice to see some of the bands like The Who, Rolling Stones, and Beatles. But it did not look very true. I recommend this to people who are fans of The Who, Stones, Beatles, and Beatles in general.

An entertaining documentary about the life of Bruce Springsteen. He's an incredible musician, and the film will give you some insight into his creative process. It's one of his first documentaries, but it's a good one. You'll get some behind-the-scenes information and interviews with his bandmates and managers. And there's some cool music footage. The interview with Jason Isbell is one of the highlights. He and Bruce are both really cool, but also funny and relatable. The documentary is also an inside look at the music industry, and the people who make it. This film is really good.

I recently viewed "Kissed by God" on a field trip to the Book-of-the-Month Club in New York City. It was well-edited and well-documented. I enjoyed the overall message of the film, but my appreciation of the filmmaker and his source material were not as strong as I would have liked. "Kissed by God" is a highly effective documentary that doesn't follow the rules. For example, there is no music. No video. The entire film is mostly video and interviews with people. The director and his family are interviewed in the film. However, this isn't required. "Kissed by God" also shows how much time and effort goes into producing a documentary. I would have liked to see a bit more of the information that the filmmaker had collected for the documentary. However, if you have an interest in the subject matter, then "Kissed by God" is a must-see. I give it an 8 out of 10.

Director Gerrit Graham has a number of gripping and revealing documentaries on his site. This one is an interesting look at the sexuality of many, but mostly, is about gays and lesbians. It's never a complete story, but it's interesting, and sometimes, just plain sad. The first part deals with the lesbian relationship of a young woman in Colorado who started a relationship with a man when she was only 15, and grew up to be a 45 year old. This woman also has a son who she raised on her own, and his other father. The first half of the film is very well done, and I think it's very important to see this woman's life before she started this relationship. Then, the second half of the film shows the second half of the woman's life, her transition to becoming a lesbian. It's a powerful documentary, and I hope it gets released on DVD. It's a bit sad that this woman is now 50, but she's a very fascinating, and real person. I would definitely recommend seeing this movie.

For anyone who's a fan of Mr. Irons' work, this documentary will leave you wanting more. After seeing his last film, "The Hateful Eight", I was expecting him to show up to the big awards show, and to give a performance like he did in that film. But he doesn't. Instead, he is in good company here. Those who remember the 70s "Double Indemnity" days and the 1960s "Bosom Buddies" and "Dr. Strangelove", you can't help but admire how far these men have come. The fact that the men are all still alive, in some form, speaks volumes about their performances. The world will always remember Tom Hanks for his performance in "MASH", but this documentary will take your breath away. The final performance of the day was by Woody Harrelson, as a priest, and when he's not performing, he's on screen. If you're a fan of the men, I think you'll be satisfied with this documentary. If you're not, I don't know how to help you.

This documentary follows Bruce Springsteen as he's called in to replace one of his guitarists, and his well-documented life and relationship with his father. It's a very funny and emotional documentary, especially the parts where he talks about his family. It's mostly his father, but Bruce has two other important people in his life, including his ex-wife, and his close friend Tom Sawyer, who was very close to Bruce's dad. This documentary is definitely worth seeing, even if you don't care about Bruce Springsteen.

I think this film is a good piece of work, the film is a bit slow, but the film is so well done that it's worth watching it. The film is a very interesting look at the life of a very famous person. I think that this film is very interesting and it's a bit hard to watch. I think that the film is a little bit slow at times, but I think that it's still worth watching. I would recommend this film.

This documentary was the first feature length film from the new director of The Purge series. It's a fascinating look at how the world is rapidly becoming a dystopian, totalitarian society. The film is mostly about how the dystopian society is being created by the banks. They are holding down the price of money, they are being able to create an artificial currency and they are in a position of power over the people. It's a good film to watch and will make you think about how things are going to change in the future. The characters in this film are a mix of the "good guys" and "bad guys" and they are so well put together. For me the film was really moving and I really felt for the people in the film and the characters and I really loved how it was put together. I highly recommend this film.

One of the greatest spiritual films ever made. The real reason this film has not been released in the US is because the UK and Australia don't give a damn about spiritual films. And the US is full of religious fundamentalists who would rather not have their country torn apart by church teachings. But I would recommend that anyone who likes spiritual films should see this. The most powerful moment in this film is when Irons is describing his early years. And his mother, in her disapproval, is about to storm out of the room. She says, "You're not ready yet." And Irons responds, "Well, what are you gonna do when you're ready?" But that's exactly what he does. And then when the credits roll, he is shown with his mother in his arms. I mean, he was born to be a priest. It's not his fault. I know he's a mess. He really was. But, the saddest part is that he was blessed. So, even though he was a mess, he was blessed. That was the real tragedy of his life. It's only when he was getting older and older that he lost it all. I just saw this movie on TV recently, and it is absolutely brilliant. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves spiritual films. It's a masterpiece.

One of the best and most eloquent pieces of work about Christianity I have ever seen. As a former Pentecostal I will always be a bit wary of the church, and it is refreshing to see so much honesty. This film is not for the faint hearted, it is painful and at times offensive. It should be viewed by anyone who wants to learn about how Christians view the world. If you are a Christian, I would strongly recommend watching this. It's not just a documentary about Jesus, it's a documentary about life. If you are a non-Christian, I recommend avoiding this film, but if you are a Christian, you will find it fascinating. I think it is worth the price of the rental.

I find the narrative style of the film rather interesting. I would have liked to have seen more footage from other interviews with a wider range of persons. The film did show the benefits of faith as a way to overcome life's difficulties, but the documentary style left me with the feeling that it would have been better if I had seen a more factual account of the events. I felt that the film was not informative enough to be effective.

What an extraordinary life the late director and actor Howard Cosell was. This documentary will make you ask yourself "Why didn't I know about him? I saw his films and the next thing you know I am in the deep of films and books and reading the things he said or wrote." It will also make you realize that he was a man of the world, not just the world of sports, he was a man of the world and so many of his personal and professional issues were touched upon and discussed. In the end, I think you will agree that he was a truly a great man and if you can get through the film you will not be sorry to have seen it. So if you haven't seen it and it's on TV, rent it and watch it.

A wonderful documentary that tells the story of an ancient civilization and their remarkable monuments. The film is filmed in a way that is both fascinating and moving. It follows the life of a group of people who live in a remote desert where they have built an ancient city called Olmec. They were the rulers of a culture that is long gone. One day, their city is destroyed by a machete wielding man, and the residents flee into the desert to survive. The film then follows them and their journey into the unknown. The film follows the lives of four people, who were the leaders of the Olmec civilization. It is interesting to learn about their lives and the purpose of the Olmec culture. This film is worth watching.

I saw this documentary on an early episode of the PBS series, "Vegas Confidential" and I was struck by how interesting it was. I was surprised at how well this documentary portrayed the Vegas community. As a person from the area, I was interested in seeing the people who were driving away with the different people in the world of Vegas. I found the documentary very interesting, as I was able to get an idea of what it was like to live there. The thing that struck me most was the diversity of the people that were leaving. It was amazing to see how the different cultures were different. The race, the religion, the age, and even the sexual orientation were important factors that were taken into account. I was surprised at how much was made of sex and the various aspects of that. I think it is a great documentary and I would recommend it to everyone. I think that the film could be shown to everyone to show that there are different aspects of life that are different than one might expect.
