I thought that this documentary was excellent and not too boring, a great documentary that should be in everyone's collection. It's not just about the war, it's about the people involved in it and how they came to be so much more than what they are now. Great documentary.

Although I have never been in a fire in my life, I have seen an incredible amount of fires. I have seen people who have died from fires in a fire. The documentary shows you that fires can actually be used to make a lot of money. The documentary does not explain this, but shows that fires can be used to make money and is a powerful tool to make money. So this documentary is a great one to see, but be warned that it is not a documentary that will explain the subject matter.

I have never been so depressed and angry watching a film as I was during the trial of the infamous Abu Ghraib prison. I believe that it is my duty to inform you of the atrocious injustice and horrible crimes committed against the people of Iraq. I am sure you have all read about this in the press, but the people of Iraq will never forget the crimes committed by the US. The first step to bring these criminals to justice is to find them. We have hundreds of thousands of records, photos and videos, all related to the crimes committed against the Iraqi people. I have one more request. We need a judge to investigate the whole of the Abu Ghraib prison case. There is no justice, justice is found. I am sure that a judge will also be willing to investigate the actions of the Iraqis during the war. I think that we have been robbed of the ability to show the true brutality of the US during the war, so that the world would not be deceived by their 'heroes' and accept the war as a noble victory. I am sure that a judge will be able to find the true perpetrator of all the crimes committed against the people of Iraq and bring the criminals to justice. We need this justice, so that no one will ever again experience the horror of war.

At first I was hesitant to see this movie. I didn't even know who the movie was about. I don't like documentaries very much. The first time I watched it I thought it was a really boring movie. But it wasn't. After watching the movie, I felt that the director was really good and I think that the whole movie was really good. If you have nothing to do, then you should watch this movie.

I'm not sure if there is a "tipping point" at which you say "this is great," but for me, it was after this film. I am so thankful that there are people like me who get to see documentaries on a regular basis. This one was a real treat. It has a wonderful rhythm, and the "mute" comments were both entertaining and informative. The movie did a great job of showing the "root causes" of the horrors of the Holocaust, and it was very well-done. The people who were interviewed were very well-rounded, and made the film that much more worthwhile. I have been looking for an educational film on the Holocaust, and this one is definitely worth watching.

If you are a fan of this director's work you'll be very pleased with this one. Not only the director's interesting visual style but the narrative style as well. It's funny, it's tragic, it's grim, and it's not afraid to express strong emotions. There is nothing in the movie that isn't good or bad. I really enjoy this director's style and really hope that this becomes an American remake in the near future. Also, I really enjoy the music of "Where The Streets Have No Name" as well. It's definitely a great movie to watch.

A very sad and sad film that documents the true horrors of the concentration camps. I was just taken away to a different time and a different place. Thank God for the word of God. No one can know what would have happened if the authorities hadn't allowed Hitler to fulfill his most powerful task. To some this movie is just a historical document, but to me it is a first class movie. My conclusion is that we are really lucky to have survived and to have a country as it is now, it is very sad and very sad. If you are going to see this movie, it is a must to see in the cinema. Even if you are an atheist or agnostic, it is a must to see this movie. You will not forget the book of Genesis, the Book of Ecclesiastes, and the Gospel of Thomas.

I have watched this documentary several times now, and while I was still in high school, I watched it for the first time and the whole thing was quite an eye opener. The documentary talks about a lot of topics that seem to be rather taboo in the US, but is really important for people who have been there or know people who have. It tells the story of the situation in the Congo and how the region was devastated by the war and its aftermath, and how people have to go back to their villages and live there, or it's very difficult to survive. The documentary talks about how the US Government, or more specifically the CIA, has helped the Congolese to deal with the situation in the Congo and how the CIA was involved in the Congo War. The documentary talks about the many stories of people who have lost their relatives in the conflict and how they have come back to the area to live and to be happy, with or without the aid of the CIA. They talk about how the CIA was helping the Congolese to fight the war, and in some cases, even the other way around. The documentary does a good job of showing the United States in a negative light and shows that the CIA was involved in the conflict. I think that the film does a great job of showing the horrors of the Congo War, and how the conflict has affected the lives of people. I think that this documentary is very important for people who have been in the Congo, and for people who have lost relatives to the war. It's a really powerful documentary, and I think that it's very important to watch this documentary.

I loved the documentary about Rommel's "Calcutta." I watched it as a drama class and it was just outstanding. Not only does this movie do a great job of making you feel and understand the context of the historical events, but it also depicts some of the more interesting aspects of the people and the situations that they faced during the Hitler Youth. The "nazi" youth was the most "nazi" part of the movie. The band from Hitler Youth is my favorite part. The documentary is worth the watch for that reason. Even though the documentary is rated R, I think it is well worth the watch.

This is a documentary on the Spanish Civil War, from the Spanish perspective. It is a slow-paced, "old style" documentary that attempts to show the Spanish side of the story. We get to hear from the participants, mostly soldiers, and a few civilians. There are a few historical notes, and a couple of interviews from the Spanish people. The Spanish are interviewed in their own words. The majority of the film is spent with the soldiers, who give very candid and powerful stories of what it was like to be a soldier in the Spanish Civil War. I was particularly impressed with the bravery of the young Spanish soldiers, who went to fight, rather than join the Spanish Civil War. This is a film about the Spanish Civil War, which is a major event in history. The film is very well made, and the film maker is very well-versed in the history of the Civil War. The director also has extensive knowledge of the Spanish Civil War, and is very able to show the Spanish side of the story. The film is very well made, and there are many interesting interviews with other Spanish Civil War participants. I would recommend this documentary to anyone interested in the history of the Civil War.

A good documentary, with some strong points and some weak points. In my opinion, this film was a good film and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in WW2 history, or anyone who wants to learn more about the war. The film is not as detailed as some of the other war documentaries, but that is not a bad thing as the movie is more focused on the war than just the war itself. The subject is covered in a very thorough manner and the film does a good job at showing the conditions that the German soldiers were forced to live in. The only thing that I did not like about the film was the fact that the documentary focused on the U.S. troops, instead of the other allied forces. I don't know if this was intentional or not, but I felt like the film was focusing too much on the Americans. I also think that the documentary did not focus enough on the actual war. There was a lot of footage of the war and the soldiers, but it just wasn't as powerful or as detailed as it could have been. Overall, I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about WW2 history.

I feel like the subject matter here is a bit too hard to take. The war atrocities of the military might be shocking, but they come across as sort of boring and overwhelming. I can understand why people like this documentary, and I'm sure there are some people who are willing to overlook the truly horrifying parts of history. I just don't agree with that stance. Most people have their own opinion, and I don't necessarily agree with theirs. This documentary should be seen for the anti-war message. I can understand why some people might think it's more important to have people look at the horrors of the war than to have a good movie. There are times where the film may feel too anti-war and not anti-war enough. I don't agree with that stance, but I do believe it's a good movie overall.

This is the story of the battle of the Bataan peninsula. The movie starts off as a documentary on the battle of the Bataan peninsula, but gets re-directed towards the people in the Philippines. The battle in question is the battle of Panay that occurred between the US Marine Corp and the Filipino government at the end of WWII. I did enjoy this movie. This documentary was filmed in the Philippines and contains several re-enactments of the battle. The re-enactments were done by a number of people and their passion and love for this battle. This film was well-made and was easy to follow and not distracting at any time. Although the film was shown in the Philippines, I did find it very interesting to see and hear the people in the Philippines talk about the battle. It also helped that the film was shown in English with subtitles, which I found to be a bit confusing because of how many people had been interviewed. Even though the battle was done by many people, I felt the Filipino actors did a very good job. Also, I have seen the battle re-enactments in the US before. Also, the film is not a perfect film, but it does what it is supposed to do. The film focuses on the people who were involved in the battle of Bataan and the people of the Philippines and how the battle affected them and what it meant to the war effort. I felt that the movie did a good job of portraying the intensity of the battle.

If you are not familiar with the events of the war in Indochina, you will likely enjoy this film. It is a factual account of what happened. It is well-paced and gives you a sense of what it was like to be there. There is no "buddy" relationship. It is a story of ordinary people who survived the war. They tell their story and you get to know them better. I would recommend this film to anyone interested in Vietnam. It was a great film.

I watched the documentary "The Harvest" on History Channel, which is part of the series "World News" by Mark Himmelstein, and I must say, I was impressed. I know Mark Himmelstein as the co-author of the book "The Search for Hitler" which explains how people sought out to find the source of the evidence that Hitler may have been the guy in charge of the concentration camps at the end of the war. What I really enjoyed was the documentary's explanation of the source of the evidence that Hitler may have been the guy in charge of the concentration camps. In other words, it wasn't the evidence, it was the desire to find the source. This is a really interesting documentary because it explains how the desire for the discovery of the source of evidence came to be. From the people who dug up the evidence, to the trial of the perpetrator who committed the crime of causing the concentration camps. This is really a documentary that gives a real sense of the mindset of these individuals. I must say, this is an excellent documentary that explains the problem of how to investigate the truth behind a crime that is not really committed by the perpetrator. The main strength of the documentary is the explanation of the motivation behind the search for the source of evidence. In addition, the documentary also includes a personal statement by Mark Himmelstein, which he made while he was in prison. This personal statement is of such an important part of the documentary because it is almost impossible to explain how someone would have their own personal motives in a war that they didn't know that was being fought on that day. I think that this documentary really emphasizes the fact that even in the best of circumstances, there are people who want to do the right thing and want to find the truth behind a crime committed in the name of Nazi Germany. This documentary also shows that in the end, when the idea of the discovery of the source of evidence becomes more and more likely, that the truth of the discovery will come out. I hope that this documentary will be able to make people realize that even in the worst of circumstances, there are people who want to do the right thing.

It's a long time since I've seen this documentary and I was shocked by the amount of time it took to play out, including the "spoiler" at the end. It's a very compelling story, with some excellent interviews. For example, I especially liked the one with the Jesuit priest who was accused of sexual abuse. It was an interesting story. I thought the acting was pretty good. I also enjoyed the music. I've never seen a documentary on the same subject, but I think I'll check it out soon. It's an interesting story, well told. I think it would have been better if it was more heavily edited. However, it still is worth seeing.

A very good documentary about the infamous 1988 US-backed coup in Nicaragua. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and feel it is an important story to be told. It tells the story of the US government's involvement in the country and the US State Department's view of the situation. The film shows the way the US government pushed the US-backed coup, by starting to isolate the country, to get a better deal from the US and the US government. I thought it was interesting to see the way the US government wanted to keep the people in the country, and to remove the opposition. I found it interesting to see how the US government tried to change the regime, by making sure the US-backed dictator, Daniel Ortega, was in power. I found it interesting to see the US government's handling of the situation, in the beginning, and how it changed throughout the film. I also enjoyed hearing about the people who were being tortured and killed in the country, and how the US government has never once apologized for the actions. I thought that the US government's actions were justified, because they wanted to see the country prosper. The US government had a huge stake in the country, and it was their government that decided to go in there. The US government wanted to make sure that Daniel Ortega was in power, and that he could protect the people. I think that the US government was justified in their actions, because they wanted to see that the people of the country prosper. I think that it is a very good documentary, and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the US government's involvement in the country.

This documentary, which is fascinating and very well made, was very well done. I have to say I think the film isn't for everyone, as the interviews are very interesting. It is however a very difficult subject to go into and quite an engrossing documentary, which also deals with the strange and somewhat odd side of the Holocaust. I also have to add that it deals with quite a few historical facts that I haven't heard about. For example the rather aggressive behaviour of the Germans towards the Jewish population, the odd relationship between the Goyim and the Jews, the behaviour of the Goyim towards the Germans, the funny thing is that I've never heard anything about that. However, if you have heard about it and you know nothing about it, then this documentary will still be a great documentary for you. The main problem is that there are a few interviews that are fairly outdated. The other problem is that it is quite a long documentary, and the way it's told is rather awkward, and more of a documentary than a documentary in my opinion. Still, I have to admit that it's very well made, and I recommend it to everyone.

We see a couple of world war 2 flashbacks, one showing the invasion of France, and the other showing the German's efforts to take Berlin. This is the most telling segment of the documentary, showing a war that we all know and are familiar with. There's a lot of footage of the invasion of France, and it's amazing to see the German military equipment on the field. There's also a lot of footage of the German soldiers getting shot. This footage is somewhat interesting, but it doesn't show the personal conflicts that the people go through. There's a lot of eye candy in the men and women, and there's even a lot of focus on the women, but not enough to make it a memorable documentary. Also, the documentary just ends a few minutes into the film, and it's not like the guys really go into the end of the war. There's a lot of downtime in this, and it's not enough time to make this an enjoyable documentary. You can still get something out of it, but it's not something that I'll watch over and over.

* SPOILERS * When I saw this film, I thought it was great. I thought it was amazing, the performances were great. However, as I was watching this film, I began to understand that a lot of the history in this film was all fiction. For example, during the times of the Nazi era, there were many divisions of soldiers in the Polish army. In the film, a lieutenant, Bielczynski, is assigned to investigate the assassination of Kieslowski. However, when he investigates, he finds evidence of corruption. I think it was the actors that made this film good. Anne Bielczynski as Karen Donohue was incredible. She was exceptional as well as Samuel L. Jackson as Grosz. I think Samuel L. Jackson was amazing as the antagonist who was murdering soldiers. He is truly evil. This is his best role. For this role he was very impressive. I also thought Dacascos as Janoski was excellent. I thought that the character was well written. I really liked the character. Dacascos did an excellent job. In conclusion, I think this was a very good film and I give it a 7/10.

I can't say that I totally agree with all of the conclusions that the film draws, and that is no surprise. At a certain point I just wanted to see what would happen, instead of the constant questions of how the evidence was presented. I also found myself not really caring whether or not many of the people were wrong. To me, that was sad. A lot of the men are suffering for a reason. You can't just ignore the evidence to reach the conclusion. The film is also just a bit over-dramatic. I think it is mainly because the filmmakers didn't want to tell the truth, but also because they felt like they had to make the film look like the truth.
