One of the best documentaries I have seen. It's so much about the lives of people who work in the theatre and who have to live on a budget. They are all people who have been a part of the business and who want to make sure it doesn't end up in the hands of the people who are behind the counter. I think that the film is very realistic. You really feel like you are there, with the actors, and with the crew. The camera work is very strong and at times almost too close to the actors. But you are there. And it's really great to see how the film is being made. It's not a documentary and it's not a feature film. It's a collection of interviews with people who have worked in the theatre. It is not a film about theatre. It's a documentary about theatre. The film is great because it shows us the reality of the theatre. The people who work there. The financial crisis. The end of the theatre business. It shows us that theatre is not a money making business. It's a great documentary that is well worth seeing.

I have seen a lot of documentaries on the media, and I have come to the conclusion that the media is not very good at handling the truth. I found this film to be excellent, but not perfect. The director was good, and it is worth the watch. The problem I had with it was that the film was a little too long, but not as long as it needed to be. The director did a good job of showing the media's bias, and the good that it does to help people. The film had a great message, but the length of it made it a little too long. But overall, I think this is a very good documentary. I would recommend it to people who are interested in media bias, and its effects on people.

This movie was like a breath of fresh air, and it really hit the spot for me. I think it's a great movie, not just because of the raw footage and narration. I've heard some of the critics ranting about this, but I don't agree. It was a very unique, honest, and raw look at a very complex issue. It's not about the politics of our time, or who is the greatest president, or what is the best music, or the best writing, or the best film, or what's the best history lesson, or the best science lesson, or the best way to tell a story. The film is really about an issue, about the true nature of war. I've always been fascinated with war and the toll it takes on those who are involved. It's about how it impacts and corrupts people, and how many people can be affected by it. The film really is a great eye-opener, and I think it should be seen by everyone.

What a wonderful documentary. It was a fantastic combination of humor, mystery and sadness. Every time I watch it, I am surprised at how accurately it portrays the life of Helen Keller. The film was excellent and made me more aware of how much I love her. It is a testament to her character that she is a person I am proud to have known and loved. The documentary did not end the way I expected. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to view this film and look forward to viewing it again.

I love documentaries about the early history of the United States and this is a great one. I felt I was privy to a lot of history and I was able to learn about a lot of things I never knew. The acting was excellent and the camera work was amazing. I highly recommend this film and I hope you see it.

I've always been a sucker for documentaries, and this film, although probably a little too long, was extremely well done and gave me a deeper insight into the world of politics and the people involved. I especially enjoyed the interviews with Senator Bob Dole and Senator Bob Dole's wife who, despite her public position on the issues, had an excellent understanding of the issues facing the country. She spoke candidly and not always in a very detailed fashion. There were many candid shots of people standing in line for hours in order to get a chance to speak with the Senator, as well as the people who were lining up at the end of the movie. I especially liked the interviews with Newt Gingrich. He was a wonderful interviewee, as were the people who were interviewed for the film. The focus was on the politicians who actually held the seats of the president and vice president, and on the people who were charged with the responsibility of carrying out the orders of the president. Many of these people had very different backgrounds and perspectives from the others. I have always been amazed at how often politicians can make you feel like they are out of touch with reality. This film is a great example of that. I also loved the interviews with a number of people who had something to do with the movement for a balanced budget amendment to the United States Constitution. The movement was a very important part of our country's history, and the film is a wonderful depiction of the current situation in the country. It also gave me a chance to talk to people who, although they weren't involved with the movement, were passionate about it. I really hope that this film does not receive the attention it deserves. Although I am a Democrat, I don't consider myself a fan of the Republican Party, and I believe that the current situation is extremely unfair to the Republicans. I hope that the film is successful in bringing attention to the Democrats' position on the issues. The most important thing that this film did was to bring to light some of the most powerful people in the country. I hope that everyone will see this film, and that everyone will be able to see the important aspects of this country and its history. Thank you for the opportunity to discuss this film with you.

As the host of the popular W.F.K. radio show, W.F.K. host and actor Ben Stein has been involved in several of the largest social and political scandals of our time. He has been a frequent guest on "60 Minutes," "Newsweek," and "This Morning" and has appeared on "Late Night with David Letterman." In this documentary, Stein reveals the true nature of the CIA's MK-Ultra Project Bluebook program, which involved the use of mind control techniques. The program, as revealed in this film, involved the abduction and use of children as well as the abuse of a number of U.S. citizens. While some of the abuses described in this film may be considered torture, this is an issue of great concern to the American people. I believe that this documentary is the most important documentary I have ever seen on the subject of MK-Ultra and it should be required viewing for all Americans. This documentary shows the world that the CIA is still the biggest threat to our civil liberties and the use of torture is still allowed to happen. The CIA is still operating with impunity and it is time for them to be held accountable.

I would say that the film is very effective in showing the contrasting life styles of the middle aged in the US and the younger in the UK. I found the characters interesting and the performances were excellent. It's a good film to watch if you want to know what life is like for the middle aged in the UK compared to the US. It's interesting to see what the different attitudes of the middle aged are like in the US and vice versa.

I'm not sure why this movie hasn't had more publicity. I'm not a fan of Tipper Gore, but she gave a strong and inspiring performance as a mother who is prepared to risk her life to help a dying child. She spoke with great compassion about the importance of public education. The documentary is well done and it's clear that this is a genuine story. I'd like to see more documentaries like this one that look at a broad range of issues that affect the lives of children. They also make the point that kids with disabilities, like Caine, are the "model minority" of today. I'd recommend this documentary to anyone who has a child with a disability, or is a parent. It's an important movie.

To view the film and discuss it is to see a documentary. It shows the struggles of an African-American woman to take charge of her own life. The film begins with the early days of her life. The short term memory loss that she experiences in the early stages of her Alzheimer's disease. The fact that she cannot see. The final stages of her illness, and the final stages of her dementia. She eventually becomes a "loner" and feels isolated and alone. The film is powerful and very emotional. Her thoughts and emotions are very poignant and leave you feeling strongly about the film. This film is a must see and should be viewed by everyone.

My friend and I were not sure what to expect when we decided to watch this movie. We found it to be a very good film. The movie followed a very small group of people who lived in the New Orleans area. Many of the people interviewed are still alive and talk about their experiences with the hurricane. It is a very interesting story. The majority of the movie was told from the perspective of the people who were in the city during the hurricane. I was surprised at how different the people were from the people who stayed behind and the people who were living in the outlying areas. The people interviewed were not as accepting of other people and I think it was a good representation of the culture in the city. They were also very much affected by the hurricane. The city was completely destroyed and some of the people are still trying to rebuild it. The documentary does show what some people saw as a normal day in the city. I think it was a very good documentary and very well made. My friend and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good documentary.

I came across this documentary while doing a search on Google for "the Proust biography". I was surprised to see it was nominated for Best Documentary, and I am happy to say that it was. Director Lisanne M. Lau is an expert in the field of art. She is a master in creating art films and documentaries, and she is one of the most talented female documentary filmmakers around. I am pleased to see she has continued to produce these films over the years, and she has done a good job with this one. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes art films, and I would also recommend it to anyone who is interested in art or literature. It is a very moving and informative film, and I can't recommend it enough.

Wow. This was the most amazing, fascinating, and disturbing film I have ever seen. I was stunned at the pure evil in every frame of this film. It is a must-see. This film has to be seen in the first three or four minutes. I don't even want to talk about the violence that is inflicted on this young girl. She was raped and beaten and left for dead in the desert by her father. I could go on and on about the horror that is inflicted on women by men, and the suffering and death of women. This film is not to be missed. It's like a documentary, but it's an artistic documentary. I would recommend this film to anyone who loves or wants to see the human spirit at its most raw and brutal. The actors in the film are so real and compelling, you could almost feel the pain and fear in their eyes. This is a must-see, and I will see it again. I really don't want to tell anyone anything about this film, because there are so many aspects to it, and I don't want to give away anything. Just see it. See it now!

This is an incredibly well made documentary. The subject matter is very relevant, and the interviews are extremely well done. I have watched this film twice, and I plan to watch it again. It is not perfect, but it is very well done, and it is definitely worth watching.

It's no secret that the past 10 years of the 20th century have been marked by the presence of two global megacities. One was the United States, and the other was the Chinese mega city of Shanghai. The former was the most prosperous and developed of the two, and the latter was the most deprived and, in some respects, the most backwards. The documentary, Cities Made For Us, tells the story of the massive effort that was put into the creation of the world's largest metropolitan area, and the many problems that arose from it. The film is quite a good example of what the documentary school of film-making is all about. It's very well made, the photography is excellent, and the interviews with the residents of the area are very interesting. The film is, of course, biased, in that it portrays the Chinese as the more fortunate people, and the Americans as the more backward ones. But this is not a film about the American government, and it's not a film about the Chinese government, so it's not really a documentary about either one. I think that if you're interested in the topic, you should watch this film. It's definitely worth a watch, and it's a good film to put on the TV when you need something to watch.

This documentary focuses on the lives of four people: two gay men, two bisexual men, and one straight man. It's interesting to see how they deal with their sexuality, and it's also interesting to see how the society treats them. The gay men have very little to do with the society at large, and they have very little control over what they do or say. The bisexual men are also very different from the gay men, in that they're often more visible in society, and therefore more vulnerable to the negative comments that come their way. And the straight man is also different from the other two, in that he's less visible to the society, and therefore less likely to be rejected. This documentary shows us how they deal with their sexuality, and it also shows us how society reacts to them. It's interesting to see how different these people are from the rest of the society. It's a good documentary, and I recommend it to anyone interested in sexuality.

I saw this film at the Sundance film festival and loved it. It was funny, touching, and very original. I am so glad that Sundance had the guts to showcase this film and it was one of the best films they screened at the festival. You will see some amazing film-making, but the bottom line is this film will change your life. It is an honest look at how our society treats the mentally ill. It is about a man who spent his life trying to "break the ice" with a woman who he barely knew. It's about a man who used alcohol to numb the pain of his wife's death. It is about the cost of addiction to our society. It is a documentary that will leave you thinking about it for a long time. One of the best documentaries I have seen in a long time.
