This film is a must-see for anyone who enjoys a good history lesson. It is a very well made film with a great cast and a great story. I have never seen a film that was more painful to watch than this one. The first thing that comes to mind is the fact that the main character, Toni Morrison, has such a big part in the film, and that she doesn't really show up until the end. I'm not sure if she was supposed to be there, but she didn't even get a mention. And that is a huge shame. The story is about her life, and how she has dealt with all of the problems that she had, and how she has dealt with them. It's a good movie, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in a good history lesson.

I am a big fan of Tim's work. I really think he is a great writer, and he does such a great job at documenting his life. This film shows his family, his dreams, and the ways he feels. It is very good and it should be shown to young people who are interested in anything and everything. It is important that they see this because the world needs to hear from young people like this.

I don't know if there's a better documentary about this great man. The story is a little thin but the idea of the film is great. Toni's work is not just his own. It's about how we live our lives and the way we relate to the world around us. And how we can make it better and how we can make it better. This is a wonderful film.

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am was a very entertaining and emotional documentary that I would recommend to anyone, and especially to those who are new to Morrison. It covers the man's life, his work, and his health. I am very proud of the work the directors and producers did to uncover his life and accomplishments, especially his days as a painter. I would also like to point out that they chose to show what happened to Morrison, not what happened to him, which is a perfect way to show how much he affected his audience. It also shows how many of his contemporaries found inspiration from his art. I would also like to point out that these clips are the most powerful part of the documentary, and those who have seen it have commented on how very true to life it is. I can't recommend this documentary enough.

This is a very powerful, thought-provoking documentary about the work of Toni Morrison, a woman who wrote "Song of Solomon" and "Song for Lya". She was an incredibly influential writer in her time and a major influence on writers and artists today. I have read many of her books and am very familiar with the themes and themes of her writing. This documentary is not for everyone, but it is a must for those who are interested in the subject. This is not a movie you would watch for entertainment, but rather for a deeper understanding of the author. It is not only about the writing of her novels, but it is also about the intellectual and spiritual influence she had on so many. It is a film about the artist and a writer who was a great influence on so many. This is a must-see for anyone who is interested in Toni Morrison.

When it was first released, Toni Morrison's 'The Case of the Vanishing Paintbrush' was a landmark film that introduced the art world to the writer/artist. This excellent documentary marks the next step of her life. It covers the writing of 'The Case of the Vanishing Paintbrush', as well as her experiences in the art world. It is a fascinating look at how a woman became a famous writer. There is a wealth of information here about her life, including her early love and marriage to an artist and the writing of the book that has become her magnum opus. It is not for the faint-hearted, as it shows the horrors of the tobacco industry, as well as the efforts that were made to keep her down in the industry. Morrison was an artist before she was a writer, and her influences were everywhere. The documentary was excellent, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the story of Toni Morrison.

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am is a powerful documentary about the life and work of the legendary novelist, poet, and poet laureate. Morrison is often held up as an inspiration for the post-modern writers and artists of our time. The film captures his singular spirit, his compelling sense of humor, and his contributions to the world. This film is a fantastic way to celebrate the life and legacy of one of our great writers and artists. Some of the best quotes are: "The one thing that I've learned from everyone I've met is that everything is a selection from something else." "I don't understand why it's so hard to believe in the happy ending." "I can't believe that the church's afraid to say we're all brothers." Morrison is not just a poet, he is an icon of our time. The film will stay with you. I highly recommend it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am is an excellent documentary that is beautifully shot and edited. The cast is terrific and the director is able to show the different aspects of Toni Morrison's life. It's not an easy film to watch, but it is an important film for all who know and love Toni Morrison. I am so glad that there are more films like this one, because I think that the public needs to see more films like this one. I am very proud of Toni Morrison and her legacy.

My view of Toni Morrison is not a formalized, clear statement of her thought. I have read her novels and have seen her film adaptations. But I am of the opinion that she is a writer with ideas and opinions, just as any other writer, and those ideas are not necessarily put into the same order, nor are they always consistent. Her novels are not 'literary' in the sense that the idea is not revealed, and sometimes they are, and sometimes they aren't. I'm not a critic, I just like what she writes. She has my respect, and I am grateful for the work she has done. I hope that she continues her work.

This documentary is a well-made piece that attempts to sum up Toni Morrison's life, with a mixture of interviews with her family, friends and co-workers, family life and memories. It is also the first film to feature all of her published work, rather than just her short stories, and the first to include the entire three books of her trilogy. I felt this movie was well worth watching, and I am very pleased with the collection of material that was produced to accompany it. The "magical stories" featured are fantastic, but the best part of the documentary is the compilation of interviews with Morrison's friends and co-workers. They speak of her as a person who was stubborn and determined, and a woman who was very public about her opinion, but was still as concerned with others as she was with herself. I think that was very important to the film. It also spoke of her as a "loving, complex, independent and charismatic individual." I also liked the interview with actor and fellow co-worker Richard Pryor. It is also worth noting that most of the interviews are in French, and there is a very strong English version that can be viewed here on IMDb.com. I hope that they will be releasing a subtitled version soon.

This movie is brilliant. It is a wonderful story of someone's journey to find the meaning of life. It will move you to tears and is filled with amazing memories. The soundtrack is amazing and every song is at least slightly entertaining. The opening narration is outstanding. The transitions from one scene to the next are seamless. The voices and intonations are superb. It's one of those movies that you cannot stop watching. It's one of those movies that will leave you feeling inspired. I am humbled by the generosity of this movie. I wish it had been released on video. I would have been completely blown away by this film.

This documentary is a great introduction to Toni Morrison's life, her work, her experiences, and the legacy she left behind. It's about the many facets of her life, from her childhood to her career, and it's well-worth seeing.

This documentary was excellent. It was extremely well made, and had the most fascinating and compelling interviews with people from all walks of life. I particularly enjoyed the interviews with the director, Robert Altman, and the producer, Robert Redford. Altman was also the one who had the most interesting questions to ask, and the most interesting answers. There were some really interesting things about the film, and it was fascinating to hear about some of the people who had worked on the film. It also included interviews with some of the actors, and I really enjoyed the way the interviews were edited together. It was also interesting to see some of the old footage that was in the film, and to hear some of the things that people had said about it. It was really great to see all of the interviews and to hear about the film, and I highly recommend it. It is very entertaining, and you will leave feeling that you learned something.

I have to say, I was expecting a lot from this movie. I was excited to see Toni Morrison in person, and I am so glad I did. She is one of my favorite writers, and this movie was a great way to start her career. The film was well-made, and it was an interesting look at the life of Toni Morrison. I think the most interesting thing about this movie was the way it was edited. You don't see any footage of her writing her books, and you don't see her reading them. I found this to be a great way to show her story, and also to show the different ways she would write her books. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in Toni Morrison, or to anyone who wants to learn more about her. This is a great movie for people who like to learn more about her work.
