The life of actress/comedienne Gilda Radner is presented largely through audio recordings of herself and through her handwritten notes, some read by fellow comedians/comediennes influenced by her work, some, like her, Saturday Night Live (1975) (SNL) alumnae. That life is told largely in chronological order. It tells of her growing up period in a relatively affluent family in Detroit, Michigan, and losing her father, who she considered her best friend at the time, when she was fourteen. The story moves to her not finishing college in the University of Michigan's drama program to pursue love - she easily falling in love with various men over the course of her life, most of those men professional colleagues - which led to her start in performing professionally on stage in a number of comedy troupes, where she seemed to be at home. Her professional success, even in those early days, can be largely attributed to she being likable no matter who she was portraying which connected her to the audience, and her willingness to do anything on stage to get the laugh if something as scripted wasn't working. Her reputation in this comedy work led to her being the first person cast on what would be the groundbreaking SNL. Despite the success, she felt much pressure, she hiding an eating disorder in order to maintain the Hollywood body image, which for her was especially prevalent in her mind in having battled weight issues as child. The difficult transition from SNL focuses on her meeting Gene Wilder on the set of Hanky Panky (1982), falling in love (despite already being married at the time) and getting married. Her story's final chapter is the roller coaster, especially in the emotional sense, in dealing with ovarian cancer, which would eventually take her life in 1989.

I don't know about you, but I've lived through the 90's. The 90's was a magical time. You couldn't see the future, you were just in it. And it was filled with one-of-a-kind music. We know who we are. We know how to express ourselves. We can use our powers, we can take control of our bodies. We can see our body from the inside out. But for all of our obvious gifts, there is the psychological cliche that we don't get through to our children. What are you going to do, pull the plug on them? This is my favorite film, it had the ability to reach people that otherwise wouldn't see it. It made me feel like I was in front of a window. That feeling of the window was the only emotion that I had during the course of the film, the only emotion that made sense. But by no means was this film perfect. All the music was in some way altered by the unbalanced lighting. It's a sort of visual equivalent to the light shining through a dirty window. You see people and feel happy, you see bad people and you feel sad, but you don't see the lights in between. Because of the overexposure, the film and the filmic images and the viewer are confused. The video track in the top left of the screen isn't as pure as it should be, it's slightly bleached and gritty. That is the only flaw I could think of in this film. It just seems that the more you stay in the same space, the more you feel drawn to that space. And you don't. If you look at the vignette in the beginning, which is a flash-back, it seems like that flash-back is for the first time. I found it strange that the film was so fast. It seemed to have an outline for the entire film. But I found the next vignette just as interesting. It was completely silent, and the subject wasn't even mentioned. I have no idea how they got them to look so good. But then again, I'm a hardcore fan of the film, and I would prefer something more convincing than a flash-back. If they weren't so short, they would have made an entire vignette. And if the music hadn't been altered, then I would have preferred a different music for the background. But if you take away everything, they still looked good, which I think is the best that could have been done with this film. It still would have been a hard film to watch. But it is a moving film, and it still has a part that will still touch you. A huge part. A huge part of the soul. The feeling you got

A solid documentary. Great music. Great visuals. great story. great insightful/edgy interviews. Loved it. OMG! The Real Marilyn will be in the next DVD and what a great voice she has! Well done to the film crew, producers, directors, cast, crew, friends, fans and everyone who helped make this a reality. I'm going to look for more of her work. No matter what the media will say or say about her. I don't care! She's great! All I want is to thank everyone for making this happen. I am so proud of the results. I was personally touched by her courage and determination. It is hard to find and watch documentaries, and this is so good. Thank you.

I've just watched the DVD of this documentary on TV, which is available on Sky Cinema, so I'm not really familiar with the production before this, but I find it wonderful. From the very first moment the camera stops, you feel the nervousness of the people who are there, almost in an atmosphere of living in a jail, with things not being as they should be. I felt this for the first time after the first 'murder' in the documentary. I'm not sure if I was the only one with this, but I am pretty sure that it's true, and if you like the documentary or not, this will be worth watching at least once. I also thought it was amazing how so many women are not afraid of the cameras and not even a little bit embarrassed by them. It's not just the criminals. There are lots of other women in jail for whatever reason, and the only thing I want to say is: watch the documentary if you get the chance. I think you'll love it.

Gilda Radner was a brilliant young actress. She was one of the most successful actresses of the 1960s. But she died at the age of 21 in 1969. In her own words, she wanted to live a life that she could live and love. But she also wanted to die a dignified death. I wish more people knew about her. And more people would care about her. When I watched this documentary, I was impressed by Gilda's self-expression. She showed that she was an artist, and also a great singer. She had an interesting voice. And she was an interesting person. I would like to know more about her life and about her work. I would like to know more about her and her art. This is a great documentary. I would recommend it to everyone. It is an important documentary about an important artist.

The movie is great, but what was the point of the movie? It was more of a "what the hell was the point of this movie?" and not a "what was the point of this movie?". I'm not sure if it was meant to be a documentary, or a documentary of the movie. It seems like it was more of a documentary of Gilda Radner. She is a talented actress, but I don't think she had any real point to this movie. I thought it was supposed to be about how the movie was made, but I just didn't get it. I mean, it's a movie, and I can understand that some people may be turned off by the fact that it is a movie. I think it was just a way to show the audience that it was a movie, and not a documentary. It was a great movie, but I just don't understand why it was a documentary. It just didn't have any point to it.

I think that this documentary is a very important one, not only for the IAmAna story itself but also for everyone who is in the struggle of bringing awareness to the plight of refugees. It brings a very human point of view of what it means to be a refugee. This is a story of hope, it is a story of hope and it is a story of resilience. This film brings together different people from around the world who share the same passion to share the story of the IAmAna story.

Gilda is an indie film that explores the life of a young woman who, after being orphaned by a tragedy, discovers her gift and pursues a life of work as a newspaper reporter. Her own life is also a struggle, and she feels she is living a life of lies. This is a true story, and it is told from her point of view. There are many layers to this film, and I enjoyed the depth and complexity of the film. The characters are wonderfully complex, and I found myself empathizing with their feelings, and with the complicated relationships that they have. I felt that Gilda is not a film for everyone, but I think it is a good film for anyone who wants to see a well-told story that can be understood by anyone.

It's a great movie, i have only the TV one, but this movie has a lot to say about how the world and the human race is. First of all, I would like to say that this is the best documentary you'll ever watch. It is certainly not what you would expect from a documentary. It is full of facts and some interesting facts, like that people who are running for office, and they are all very well connected, most of them are in Germany. I didn't know that, when i watch this. To sum it up: It is a very very important documentary, and it shows us what we don't know about the world and how we all can make changes in it, and we can do something with it.

Gilda Radner - a nurse and the daughter of a famous "extremist" - was known for her contempt for both doctors and nurses. This movie explains the reasons why she became so disgusted. She became an anti-nurse after her daughter suffered from ovarian cancer. Her views became so extreme that it eventually drove her to perdition. She was crazy and insane. Why did she do this? Because she loved the rich man in her life, Gertrude Bell. She had a deep love for him and she couldn't stand Gertrude. She was in love with Gertrude's lover Dr. John Bosley. But she lost her love for him after she saw Gertrude go crazy. The movie shows you how Gilda felt when she saw her daughter suffer in the hospital. The movie is emotional, shocking and shocking!

I really can't remember my life without Gilda. She is one of my all time favorite films and I am sure many other people will agree with me. Gilda always makes me laugh and give me some hope of the world. I watched this movie more than 10 times and still laugh from it every time. Gilda is a true legend and I am sure all people will like the film. I saw it once and I think I will watch it again. In addition to the story about Gilda and her sister, there is a montage of various moments of her life with her husband and her children. There is also a lot of humor and humor is the best way to have fun watching this great film.

I feel as though this film was a great tribute to Paul Schrader. Mr. Schrader worked so hard to bring his opinion to life and this film was his attempt to do the same. I feel like the film was brilliant and very entertaining and kept me laughing the entire time. I was laughing my butt off during it and a lot of my friends were too. It was well written, well made and truly moving. I also think that the plot was very interesting. Also the soundtrack was very cool. I'd highly recommend this movie to anyone.

a movie like never seen before.and you gotta keep your eyes open for the documentary as it starts.I think my newest favorite movie,just dont wanna say any more. It's like a sort of movie that we all could watch together,and its not just any regular movie,it has a purpose,it shows a different part of the society,a whole new family, and it's not just about sex,it's about children.the events are like a real life event. Not only about the sex,it's about the whole family drama that goes with it. as one of the other reviewers said: This is the most important thing in the world,we are not born a whole family,but we're born with a certain relationship with our parents,we're born to go with them,and it's a very important part of our lives,and we all know it. Im just gonna write this to all of you: We should all be better and stronger,and at least know that,and be the best of our selves,and fight for our rights and rights of our family,and i believe,i believe that Gilda will win. Don't miss it,just buy the DVD,and watch it for yourself,and make your own decisions,or don't watch it at all.

I'm a fan of Gilda Radner, and this is a good documentary. She's just so funny and a great actress. I'm surprised she wasn't nominated for an Oscar for this. It's a great look at the filming of this movie, and the work that went into making it. It's not a perfect movie, but it's a good look at the film-making process. It's nice to see Gilda Radner in her element. I hope she gets nominated for an Oscar for this.

Oh my god, it's so sad when you are a parent and you are having a terrible moment and suddenly, a movie comes and makes you cry. This movie is absolutely worth every second of your life. I can't believe how horrible the parents were. How did they behave? They were horrible. It was horrible how they treated their children. In fact, it was so horrific. I was so mad when I got home. I am a single mom and my husband is like a super Mom, and yet, she was the most despicable. She treated her kids like she was some sort of animal. She called her kids "peasants", and not even allowed them to have any sort of human interaction. She gave them very little. Also, she took a picture of a stick, and used it as a scrapbook. If it's not fine to cut your kid's fingers off. When she came home with these kids, it made me so mad. I want to hurt her with this kid. I want to make her so mad. I want to drive my husband crazy. It's really scary. I don't want to hurt her. It's like she was giving it right to me. I want to take away her power. I want to do something. It's really, really scary. I think that's how I feel when I watch this movie. I'm definitely going to have to take a couple of kids away from her.

I saw this documentary about Gilda Radner, and I think it's very important to see her story from a different perspective. She is an amazing and inspirational person, who has been in a lot of situations. She is a great person and a great actress, who I hope will be able to continue her acting career. I also really like how they portrayed the director, and his wife, who made this documentary. They really helped to tell this story, and to get the point across. I think it's a very important movie for everyone to see.

If you love movies, then this is a must watch. It is a mix of documentary and interviews with some of the best people in the industry. It is a must watch for people who want to know how the movies are made and why they are so much loved. I loved this movie so much, I think it was a little too long but it's worth the wait. This movie is a must see for people who love movies and want to learn more about the making of movies. 7/10
