This is a brilliant documentary that has a heavy hand on the documentary with the use of video. You never really have a look at the real murderer(s) of the 8 young girls. So it's impossible to really see what the killer was thinking. I mean you have to know what he was thinking to feel sympathy for him. In my opinion a very sad thing that happened to those young girls. All that the documentary has done is to point out how much his crimes are haunted by the family he left behind. So there is a part of the documentary that is very graphic, but it does speak to people who don't know anything about these victims. It does not want to show them as victims. It wants to show them as people. I'm very surprised that this documentary wasn't nominated for an Oscar. It's very well done. Well done.

I was skeptical about seeing this documentary, and in spite of the critics, I still don't know if I liked this film. And the reason is probably the director - Lars von Trier's reputation for shock and violence. What I found quite disturbing was how easy it was to avoid even the smallest part of the guilt of the perpetrators of the Holocaust. There is a moment in this film, in a small meeting in a cafe with politicians, that was shocking, that almost made me start tearing up. The interviewer does not even hesitate in saying it all out loud. This is very difficult for me, because there is no point of this movie, it's not really about the victims of the Holocaust, but it's about the perpetrators of it. It's about how easy it is for them to convince themselves that they're right, that they're living in a reality that's so corrupt and so much bigger than what they see. You know, how much we respect the Holocaust and want to at least recognize its victims, but, with this film, I really wanted to show a little of the guilt that was accumulated by the perpetrators of the Holocaust, and that's something that is hard to show. However, I still think this is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It's shocking, it's dark, it's honest, it's deep. It's also intelligent, because the story is told in such a way that's so powerful and so realistic that it's worth seeing twice, or maybe even three times. I hope the movie's already available on DVD and that the director will give it a release in the US. In the meantime, you can read the book by the director himself, which tells a lot of stories about the genesis of the Holocaust.

This film is well worth the watch and will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride. I was completely convinced that I was watching a documentary when I first saw it. I was totally surprised that all the information was presented in a straight forward way without commentary from the filmmakers. The film is presented in a way that it is very easy to follow and follow up with. I thought it was beautifully done. I cannot imagine how much more I would like this film if I could simply have all the footage rewound and made available to me as an mp3 file. It was truly a beautiful story, that was as real as life itself. A must see for anyone who wants to see what it really takes to make this story come alive. Bravo to the filmmakers!

Good, not great, so-so, but good. I was not expecting much, but this movie is a superb introduction to how one person's story can affect thousands of others. Without the director's personal approval, this would not have been possible, and without the work of his family and the millions of people who reached out and gave their time to help in their time of need. The story is about Jack and Anne, and they show how important it is to be true to yourself and others, especially your loved ones. You never know how much good can come from sharing. The great part about this movie is that it leaves you with a smile on your face, a hope that you will find someone special in your life. In the end, this movie is a great reminder that we have so much to learn from each other and from our own lives. It reminds us that there is always someone out there to help us, and that the only way we will know that someone is to help someone else. Truly, this is a great movie. It is no "don't go, go alone" movie. It is a great film to show families how true love and sharing are more than just a word, but a way of life. That family matters more than anything else. I loved this movie and I can't wait to see it again. I truly recommend it.

After watching this documentary I am genuinely intrigued and now I am looking for my Grandmother and her husband to go to see it. What a fascinating story.

I had read the book as a kid and so it is always easy to relate to someone who has gone through the same things you had.I was very moved by the entire movie and the ending leaves you wanting more.

I have read the book. I have seen the movie. I have listened to the podcast. What a journey. I am thrilled to know that the film is both the same and different. This film is the same as the book. The book is a story about three people, including one who was formerly missing. I am very much looking forward to seeing the movie. I'm a big fan of the book and I cannot wait for this movie to be released. I'm also excited to see the other parts of the film because I am so fascinated by what will happen next. The book is beautiful. The book is perfect. I'm excited to see what the movie brings to life. I can't wait to see the book. I will love the movie. I can't wait to hear the podcast. It will be such a great experience. It is such a shame that the podcast has to stop. It will be so much better to have a movie, especially this one. Thank you so much for being here with me, everyone, and thank you so much for being a part of this journey.

I'm very impressed with this film, and I've never seen an interview quite like it. I was never more impressed by anything I've seen, including "I Am Sam," a documentary about the 1999 Columbine shootings. I was more impressed by what I had seen of these three men. I think this film does a great job of telling the stories of three individuals, and of each of the men's families, and their own battle to come to terms with their sons' tragic deaths. They're so tragic, and so well done. I can't wait to see what happens to the other three. I'm sure they'll be fascinating to watch, as well. I'm looking forward to reading the book. I've been meaning to read it since I saw the film. My thanks to the actors and crew of "I Am Sam."

I was very impressed with this documentary. I think the subject matter was very important. I was very moved by it. And the way it was presented really opened my eyes. As a viewer, you get the feel of the documentary just from the film, but from the heart of the subject. I think that the documentary was very well done, and the way the story was presented gave the viewer a feeling of the documentary being relevant to our world today. I believe that people who haven't seen the documentary yet will have a great appreciation for it because it's so meaningful. So I urge you to watch this film, but at the same time, don't forget to also keep up the good work of the rest of the crew and to not lose heart. We need you to keep making the documentaries and keep up the good work.

In what's probably the single most important public health policy speech in U.S. history, Dr. Michael Siegel gives a detailed and insightful overview of the "Willie Horton" case, what happened to the accused, how the investigation went awry and how it affected the prosecution of the case. Among other topics, this film covers the finding that the evidence against the accused was insufficient to prove a crime and the media coverage of the trial, including the distorted coverage by the national and local media. It also addresses the publicity of the case, including the following media-spokespersons: Congressman John Murtha, who was the first to call for the death penalty, was made a spokesman for the defense, and ABC News had a "Special Report" segment. In the end, Siegel describes how the "Willie Horton" case eventually became an international scandal, with many foreign governments censuring Canada and the U.S. for their high-handedness in handling the case. Ultimately, this film may be of interest to the general public, but a few things may surprise and interest the individual interested in the history of the news media in the U.S. and Canada.

I first watched this documentary on January 25th, 2017. This is a great documentary on many levels. It's interesting to watch different parts and see how they intertwine. The documentary moves at a good pace and the emotional punch this film delivers is intense. When a person gets a bad experience in life, it's very difficult to get over it. This documentary shows you the story of a family in particular. The film chronicles the story of a family that has been broken up by divorce. The father has remarried, but is still not involved with the child. The mother has moved away to the big city. The father returns home from the big city and finds the family is still going strong. He reconnects with his children and has the family go on a trip to Iceland. He tells them about the experience and how he lived it. It's a very personal story, but there's so much more to the story. It's an amazing story, and it's a great story for the whole family. It was a great documentary and I highly recommend watching it. Watch it, and you'll be surprised how much you can learn. You can be a part of a family that is broken up, and it can be a very powerful story. This film is a great and enjoyable documentary.

I had the chance to see this movie at the Toronto Film Festival and I must say that it was a wonderful experience. The movie is filled with anecdotes and insights from many of the characters. It is a very powerful story and I would recommend seeing it if you have the opportunity. I think the best part of the movie was the conversation that was going on and how it was moving. I was so moved by the experience that I could not leave the theater without shedding a tear. I would like to see this movie again to listen to the conversation between the characters and to hear what they had to say about the experience. The movie is also filled with interesting facts about the history of the Holocaust. I am sure that the history of the Holocaust is not completely clear, but I was able to understand that the film makers were able to convey the emotional story that they wanted to tell. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has the opportunity to see it.

This documentary is about the prison rape and murder of a young woman. After being locked in the cells for more than two years, the young woman is finally released. The conditions in the prison are not much better, as the young woman is often beaten and raped by guards, and her fellow prisoners. As the film opens, a pregnant woman, who is out of prison for some time, is being forced to have a c-section, in order to perform her routine surgery. While she is unable to breast feed, she hears the sound of another baby being born, in the hospital, and while she is holding the baby in her arms, she sees her daughter, now aged eight, crying, as the staff of the hospital remove her placenta. The pregnant woman, who is played by Jessica Chastain, says that it is the first time she has seen her daughter cry, and that she has become very attached to the baby, which she will name Sasha. The scene ends with the young woman, who is very distraught, walking up to her daughter, saying: "She's no longer in the world, my sweet. I miss her every day. She's gone." The film also shows a local man, whose daughter was raped by the guards, and the film also shows the young woman's boyfriend, who is facing charges of child abuse. When asked how he feels about what happened to his daughter, he says: "She went to prison for four years, and her name is Sasha. If she were in a normal prison, she would be an animal, a pariah. It is a bad thing, but she is now free."

The movie was filmed in the early 80's and focuses on two young adults, one of them a former classmate of the narrator, who was involved in a drug deal. The narrator is a married man who has been married to the same woman for over 20 years. His wife left him and was never able to return. This is a very real story of how two young adults can be very different. One is a guy with a history of mental illness and the other is a guy who has been living with his parents for over 20 years. They are both very different people, but one is able to manage his illness and live a normal life, while the other is not able to live a normal life. It's a very touching and emotional story. It's definitely worth seeing. Also, the movie does a good job of showing the financial struggles and financial problems faced by people in the suburbs. The narrator is very articulate and does a great job of explaining his experience with the drug dealing. This movie is definitely worth seeing.

As a person who's ever been in the middle of a marital argument, I can only say that this documentary had me speechless. It was hard to watch someone losing their life, and the documentary showed that this was not an isolated incident but was part of a trend. People who find themselves in this situation often have to deal with the resulting hurt, confusion, and anxiety, as well as the loss of a loved one. This documentary, in my opinion, was one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

I found it absolutely fascinating. I loved the way the director edited the film. The scenes where the boys were raised were wonderful. I didn't want to miss the part when the camera zooms out to the street. It really brought the audience into the world. It was a profound experience and the director certainly did an excellent job. I also enjoyed the documentaries in the film. The first one was about the trials of George and his mother. The second was about the boy's father and how he managed to resist his burden. I was looking forward to see the third, about George and his brother. What a great film.

Although this movie was not well received by critics and audiences alike, I think it is a good film. The story is compelling and the drama is very real. The subject matter is very relevant and the film was very well done. However, the editing was a little off-putting. In one scene, the editing was completely out of sync with the rest of the movie. This is a very minor thing but it made the movie seem a little flat. The main problem with the editing was the fact that the story didn't seem to flow in a cohesive way. I have never seen a film so slow paced and I have seen a lot of documentaries. This film is not without its flaws but it is a good film that is worth watching.
