This is not the film you'd expect from the name of this director. It's more like the film I'd expect from the director of 'Trainspotting', but it's far from being that film. This is the slow, dry and natural life of some migrants. In the first 15 minutes, we are introduced to a family from Hungary. They were living in a strange, mostly rundown refugee camp in Bulgaria. They don't speak English. They don't know anything about where they are living. They just want to go home. But they don't know how to do that and don't know how to return home. They get in their car and head to Macedonia. For 5 days they are in the border of Macedonia and Serbia. Then they head for Serbia. At the same time they get in their car and head for Germany. I suppose this is the story of those migrants from 'Hungary'. They think they will be going to Germany. But what do they know about Germany? They don't know where they are. And even if they are in Germany, they don't know who they are and where they are. They think they are going to be going to Germany but they don't know what the hell they are going to do with the rest of their lives. And they don't know how to return home. The film is a glimpse into the life of a few people and how they are fighting to stay alive. I thought that it was really interesting. The film also has the feel of a documentary. There are some people who you don't know much about. Some who have told the stories to you in a very eloquent way. I was very impressed with the way the filmmaker was able to tell the story of these people. But it is not a documentary. It's just a very slow, dry and natural documentary about people struggling to survive. That's not to say that the film is a waste of time. It's interesting and worth watching, but it's not a film. That's not to say that this is a bad film. I did enjoy this film. But this film is not the film that I thought it was going to be. If you don't have a clue what I mean.you may like this film. If you know what I mean.I think you will probably hate it. I can't recommend this film to people who are looking for a good film. If you want to watch a film that will make you think about things.and leave you with a lasting impression of the human race.this is the film for you. I gave this film a 7 out of 10. The first half is very slow, very slow. I was kind of annoyed with the way this film was going to end. It didn't get better. The film could have gone much better.but it didn't. The film was good. But the first half of the film was good but the second half was awful. I can't recommend this film

Before I saw this movie, I'd read some reviews that said the movie was the 'what if' of the decade. I was expecting that. I was expecting the stereotypical 'dumb jock' that a lot of guys seem to fall in love with today. They want the perfect girl, the ultimate protector, and the leader. The kind that the Jocks always fall for. The kind that would win the heart of the lady next door. This is what a guy like that would be looking for in a chick. But we have the perfect chick from the start. The perfect story, the perfect relationship, the perfect choice. This movie has all of those things and more. The story is great. It's suspenseful and the twists and turns keep you guessing till the end. The choice of actors is a perfect mix of the "sinner" and the "hero". I don't want to give too much away about the movie, but I'm going to. It takes you from the halfway point to the end. The choice of the protagonist and heroine is just perfect. This movie is definitely a must see, I'm just saying it's worth checking out for guys that want to get a little closer to their chicks.

I read about this documentary when it first came out and finally got around to watching it. As a native of rural Kentucky, I can relate to much of the footage in the documentary. From the rural scene's small towns to the increasingly urbanized areas, the residents of the small town West Virginia look like everyday Americans. Their experiences are largely similar to the experiences of many of the people in the larger cities. The film is very helpful in helping to put some of the story into perspective. It shows the small town population in a very negative light and the things they can't handle. The town's stories are very common among the small towns in America. I think that it is a valuable film to watch for a variety of reasons. For people of all ages, the film is certainly a "must see" for educational purposes. It can show viewers how much better lives could be with the modern conveniences that the country's cities and states have become. It is also a must see for people of color. The film shows people of color in a positive light and demonstrates that they have both the same problems as the country's white population. We see them as normal Americans who have been forced to face issues that normal Americans don't have to face. I think that the film will definitely help in shedding light on some of the issues that are facing America's rural areas.

Good documentary. Funny and depressing story. It's something I watch often. This is definitely the best documentary about inhumane abuse of animals for food.

This documentary is a must see. It shows how undercover cops work in the United States and gives an insight into what makes them tick. They explain how undercover work is different from other law enforcement agencies, and why some officers do not respect the law and are more concerned about their careers than what is right. I really enjoyed this film. It is by far the most thoughtful and thoughtful documentary I've seen in a long time. It's informative, funny, and very entertaining.

I saw the movie at the L.A. Film Festival and it is still one of my favorite movies. The film is the greatest piece of filmmaking I have ever seen. It is full of beautiful images and a wonderful story. The film examines a number of important topics. This movie will make you think about society, your relationships, your own life and the people you have in it. There are so many questions to ask about the human condition and there is a lot of information in it that will keep you thinking. If you have not seen this movie, I strongly recommend it. It is a must see movie.

Based on an account by the French journalist Serge Klarsfeld, "Olivier Roy, Secretary to U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan" is the definitive account of this extraordinary man's meteoric rise to fame and the tragic consequences of his greed, impetuous nature and his indecisive political views. The film presents to the viewer Klarsfeld's vivid and highly informative narration and the film's taut and gripping interviews with the likes of former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, former U.N. Secretary General Boutros-Ghali, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro, and former French Foreign Minister Helene Klarsfeld. The film also highlights an incredible performance from Nicholas Jarre, known for playing Paul Revere on HBO's "The Wire".

This is a slick, well-edited, slick, well-written, well-directed and well-edited documentary about the history of the CIA. It's about how the organization came to be, how it changed during the Cold War and how it has changed since. I saw it at the annual Philadelphia International Film Festival and was surprised at the quality of the film, the choices, the drama. We get a real look at some of the people who were involved with the CIA. Like William Casey (John Quayle), who became vice president of the agency when Bill Casey (President Richard Nixon) was president. We get to hear about the brutal nature of the cold war, how the agency operated and its ethical standards. We also get to hear from directors and producers about their work and how they feel about the subject matter. No political or ideological message here, just a look into the organization that is, and how it evolved over time.

Seeing a video of this documentary from a small audience I had no idea what I was watching. But I was totally engrossed. I thought the first half was a bit slow and it took a while to get going, but I was totally mesmerized by the second half. It was so well done. The story was deep and the music was phenomenal. I would have to say this was a great documentary and worth the price of admission. I loved it and highly recommend seeing it.

Budget: $2,000,000. (Composer: Rick Wakeman). Director: Greg Wilpert. Stars: Jared Leto, John Cusack, Robin Wright. Running Time: 100 minutes. (Not rated). Running out of ideas? This isn't it. This is a soap opera of sorts, about the Mr. X-Files episode "Aquatica." It's a strange one, but that's how it should be. It's not just about the movie, it's about the mystery of the film. It's about Who is the character, and it's also about the mysterious Mr. X-Files character. Or how else could we describe this strange film? Perhaps its the musical score, or the amazing imagery. Or the soundtrack. Or the outstanding performances. Or perhaps it's just a weird soap opera, but for reasons beyond the director's control. Maybe it's a mystery as to why such a wonderful character would even be appearing onscreen. It just is.

We loved it. The subject matter is different. We get to see real battle footage, and footage of the actual combat and boot camp. It is tough and truthful. There were several sequences we felt needed to be edited. One could argue that the BBC should have cut down on certain footage. But the overall impact is still great. Some footage was cut out but others are used in the US and UK editions of the DVD. The four (!) troops talked in very honest terms and their "life story" makes for an excellent intro to combat. The DVD is pretty heavy on interviews with the troops, but not as much as the film itself. If you can get a copy of the original film, I recommend watching it before you watch the DVD. This is an excellent starting point and you will find yourself questioning what did I miss during the course of the film. It is hard to come up with an objective review. I don't know what it was that I saw in the film that made me so passionate about this documentary. I just watched it at home and it was amazing. So good! So honest. Just as I wanted. And if you like war, you'll like this documentary. It's a must-see.

This documentary is a rather good look at just how physically and mentally challenging this kind of work can be, even if it is noble in an even more noble way than what the majority of people might do. If you've ever seen a documentary, you've probably watched this one. In this case, the main focus is on the film "An Invisible Man", a documentary about Burt Lancaster, who was the main subject of this film. The film was shot by Lancaster and his cameraman in a studio. The cameraman and crew are treated like the best of friends by Lancaster and the other subjects. It is all part of a competition to win an acting award for Lancaster. There is no real point to this documentary other than to just show a little of what it can be like to work on a project with a famous person. We have a lovely interview with Lancaster, his friend Tom Hanks, and with Lancaster's mother in New Zealand. That's about it. This documentary is a nice example of documentary making. The documentary is honest, and it shows just how difficult it is to do a documentary on a famous person. But even with that, it is still a good example of the basic business that documentaries are about. Good work, good subjects, good camera work.

Maybe I'm not a big fan of James Raze but I think this film is a great example of how to tell an inspirational story in a timely fashion. While the story is definitely personal, it seems like this film can easily be applied to the issues of our time. I am not saying it's realistic, but it's certainly refreshing to see a film that doesn't have any super powers or super villain. I really enjoyed the story, the actors and the music, but in the end I feel like the direction was a bit lacking. There's some questions I've had about the film that really should have been addressed in more depth, like: Why are we letting these people go? Why are we not working together with the army and the people of Kurdistan? It's really a frustrating situation but ultimately if we all work together, I think we can accomplish a lot. I'll continue to watch this movie and hope for the best.
