I think the documentary movie is a great way to go about the important topic of sexism in the film industry. The problem here is that the movie is a bit too soft on the subject. The main issue is that in this movie we have a female director, a female producer, and a female screenwriter. It's a few steps above the typical presentation of the female director's film, but still way too soft. It is a little too friendly, it's too easy to identify who the female director is and how she is perceived in the industry. It is too easy to get along with the female producers and female producers. It's very friendly, too friendly to one person. I also find the way the female producers are depicted in this movie a bit too friendly. In general, the female director in this movie does not get along with the female producers and with the female screenwriters. I think that's too nice to say about the female director, and I would not recommend this movie to anyone, especially to the younger generation. If you want to see a strong female director, go watch "Femme Fatale." I believe that's the best way to go about this topic. It is also a good way to talk about how women are treated in the film industry, how the industry is more like a girls' club and how the women are portrayed as whores. To me it's also a good way to talk about how society deals with this topic, how people see women in films, and how the women are treated in the industry, but it's a bit too friendly. I don't know if I would watch the movie again, but I would definitely not recommend this movie to anyone.

The film is short and sweet, but by no means good. It's not supposed to be a masterpiece, but it has a certain visual style which is not at all over-the-top. I don't know about you, but that is what I like most about it. I love that it looks like it was shot in a fairly serious fashion. And, the fact that the film is only an hour long is an enormous plus for me. I actually liked it, but it's not a masterpiece. The fact that the film doesn't have the scope to show the entire thing in one sitting is a plus, too. By no means is it a great documentary. But it's definitely one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. And as a documentary, it's great. The problem is that it's not very well done. I guess there are some clips that are just wonderful, and they deserve to be seen. But, to my mind, there is really nothing much to the film. And, the questions that are asked are not very interesting. It does a good job in introducing the songs. And, the idea that Ray Charles was close to getting an Oscar for his performance is almost as good as the idea that he got an Oscar. The film also covers the whole period from the early 40s to the late 60s. And, that covers all the major artists. But, by the end of the film, it just feels like it has been overlong. All in all, a good documentary. And, it was well done.

I saw "The Girl in the Spider's Web" by Sofia Coppola at the Toronto International Film Festival and it was very interesting, but I didn't really buy the film or believe it. I was completely underwhelmed by the film. Coppola's style is unique and her films are a bit hard to figure out. I found myself continually saying to myself, "Oh, Sofia, that doesn't make sense." "I don't get this", "It's too abstract" and "I don't get that". I didn't really understand the symbolism that was being portrayed. I did think that the film's primary focus was on the "real" Maria. Coppola seems to want to present a movie that's more about the girl and the movie rather than about the issues surrounding her. It's just too weird to me that she would feel the need to mix her themes so heavily. I am not a fan of Nina Simone, and I don't want to see her on screen and go out of my way to see her. The film does have a few good points, though. The performances were very well done and the footage of the Berlin theater performances were fascinating to see. The documentary-style style of the film was very cool, especially in the second half. I'm not a big fan of documentaries and I'm sure some people will hate it, but I liked the documentary-style approach. I like the fact that the movie had some nice visuals. I also liked the fact that I wasn't necessarily that deep into the subject matter or trying to think about it to my detriment. "The Girl in the Spider's Web" definitely has its moments, but I think that the film is not as compelling as I expected.

For anyone who has a thing for the music of The Rolling Stones, they will love this documentary. The story of Mick Jagger and his group The Rolling Stones, was told with great passion, details, and a very personal story. The subject of the documentary is that the group's life took a turn in the mid-seventies when they were forced to disband due to drug abuse, but all the surviving members were willing to share their stories with the audience. There are lots of great stories of the group's lives in this movie, including the times they spent together with John F. Kennedy, the time they spent touring in Africa with Lynyrd Skynyrd, the time they spent in Las Vegas with Cream, and of course, there is the time they spent in London during the summer of 1967. Mick's trip to India, to tour with the British Invasion, was also a highlight of the documentary, as well as their stay in Moscow. The one story that really got me was the time that they spent in Paris, where they performed during the 1968 Olympics. That trip was interesting to watch, as they got to spend a couple of days in Paris, with a lot of backstage interaction with the top athletes. Another thing I really enjoyed was that Mick showed a little bit of humor during the time in Paris. While on the road, Mick was a little too serious, but that didn't take away from the content of the documentary. Although I do understand that the purpose of the documentary is to tell the story of the Rolling Stones, it still does well to tell a story about the band as a whole. The documentary is very good at telling the story of the band, but there are also a lot of interesting stories about Mick, his band, and his personal life. This is one of the best documentaries that I have ever seen.

I am a huge fan of Madonna and I believe that it is good that she has decided to make this documentary. I believe that it is good to make such documentary because it is true and I believe that this will also be good for Madonna. She is one of the most amazing artists of the century and she knows how to make her voice sound and it really brings her songs to life. I have never been a fan of Madonna and I am really happy that she has made this documentary because she has really reached a lot of people who are not so much fans but she has made it a really good documentary. So go watch this and have a good time with Madonna.

I saw this at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Some of the things I saw were: 1) The French government releasing this film for the first time; 2) The actual film, showing the press conference and the initial response from the French government; 3) Dictator in the White House meeting with President Bush; 4) Oliver Stone having his "Who Shot JR?" interview; 5) The actual film of the Presidant's remarks; 6) The actual film of the French government releasing it. The fact that the French government is releasing the film was a major plus for me. It was a bit of a disappointment, however, that some of the things that could have been brought up are not mentioned at all, such as the role of C.C. Penelop, as well as other key members of the group. Overall, a really good documentary about the assassination of JFK. A must see for all.

That this film is about the famous French singer, one of the best in the world is a big secret. "A person who was killed, that had sung with a famous singer" - this is the synopsis. Also this film has a great cast - so many famous artists and singers - that the top actor here is Jean-Louis Trintignant who's a great singer, actor and screenwriter. He directs this film and the great actors. The song that made this film became famous - I'm sure everyone knows it - and there are some great stars here. It is a great biographical film. It is a documentary about "L'Aube" - one of the biggest and most famous singers in France in the 20th century. She was "the best singer in France" - she was considered a great artist and so many of her songs are still played in France and sung by everyone - but not so much as many others - "a woman with a big voice." - this is the description. The film is about the impact she had on her fellow artists and musicians - but not so much on the people who had been listening to her music. It was also about her relationship with her own family. She made a lot of money but she didn't have to do much to be famous. It is a great film about this superstar - one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. It is also a documentary about her and her music - because the two are very similar. It is a great biographical film about a singer. You can't get better than this one! It is great - I recommend it! It is great. I'm giving it a big thumbs up.

It is a remarkable documentary that had me hooked from the start. First of all the biographical content of film, and what made me aware of the situation was the performance of James Franco. The way Franco delivered his speech was brilliant, he kept on creating moods with his eyes, the way he was singing, making it a very entertaining and powerful documentary. Franco's documentary was very well filmed and beautifully done. He also had some brilliant interviews with great singers and songwriters. It is not an easy thing to get interviews with musicians and singers, as they tend to say more than the normal subjects of interviews. James Franco is the exception. Franco showed a very personal and beautiful story about a man who was young when he was making a lot of money, and was well aware that he was playing with a lot of luck, not only from the audience, but from the time that he was making the records. After this documentary, I am convinced that a lot of music industry people are now changed from what they were before and I am sure that James Franco will get a lot of praise for his story. 7/10
