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.
