This film is based on the story of The Black Dahlia. It is a compelling and revealing film, that will give you a new perspective on the murder. I believe that there was a lot of luck involved, but that the fact that they found the body is what tipped the balance of justice in their favor. You will feel uncomfortable throughout the film, because you will be thinking "What if that happened to me?" But the film does give you an insight into the mind of the killer. It gives you the chance to see his motivations and to empathize with the murderer. The film has a great soundtrack, that will put you in a trance. It is definitely a film you need to see. There are some scenes that are so disturbing and emotionally draining, that they will have you crying. And when you see the film, you will think that the murder is as shocking as the movie itself. The cast is wonderful. The whole cast is great, and I believe that it will be a good choice for a DVD. It is a film that will make you think. The story is compelling and you will want to see this film, because you will want to know what happened to these people.

This is a movie about a popular band in the late 70s that got a hit single but did not do much. The film shows the band, the manager, the management, and the band members. The manager is the very famous Tony Schwartz, and the band members are Jon Bon Jovi, Nick Carter, and Richard Hell. They are trying to get a hit single but are still struggling with their own problems. This is a very interesting documentary about the music industry in the 70s and early 80s. It is very informative, and the interviews are very interesting. I would definitely recommend this film. It is worth watching.

I am not a music fan, and I am not a fan of the people in this documentary. I am just curious what I could learn about the music. My initial thought was that the music is just too depressing and I found it boring. But I started to realize that it's not about music, it's about the whole process. I liked the documentary. It was interesting to see the history behind the music and how it started. It was also interesting to see how it has evolved. I also enjoyed the way the music was selected and selected to show the history behind the music. I was surprised to see that it was not one single artist but a mix of so many artists that makes up the music of Strangers. The music was chosen by the director because it was a mixture of all kinds of music. I think the music was chosen very well. Overall, I would recommend this film to anyone interested in music. It was a very interesting and different way to see the history of the music and the way it's evolved. I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone who is a music fan.

I saw this film for the first time when I was about 11 years old. I was in awe, as the music and dancing was so great. I remember watching this film every day for a year and a half. It was a movie I could watch over and over and over again. I was very passionate about this film and always kept it in my heart. Now, I am in my thirties and have watched this film many times and I am still as passionate about it. It has a great soundtrack and the dancers are great. I am not a fan of dubstep and I don't like EDM and I am not a hip hop fan. However, this film was perfect for me. It was very emotional and I could watch it over and over. This film had a lot of real life stories and the stories were amazing. The story of the mother and her son was amazing. I would recommend this film to anyone. I would also recommend it to anyone who is an EDM fan. I am very much a fan of electronic dance music. I am not a fan of EDM or hip hop music, but I love the music and dance scenes in this film. I highly recommend this film.

The film is about a Jewish family of five, who are living in a run-down apartment building in a city in the heart of the American South. The whole family comes from a long line of immigrants, and one of the children has been abandoned by his father, who is now a lifeguard. The kids are now looking for a new place to live, but they are constantly being told to leave. There are some nice and humorous moments, but mostly it's just depressing. The children, however, are trying to make a living, and in the end, they end up spending their money on drugs, alcohol, and other things that are very much out of line with their morals. This is a film that does not have any redeeming qualities. It's just depressing, and that's the point.

This is an extremely well made documentary about a documentary. It starts off with a montage of the "Kreuzberg Strangers" singing their own songs, playing their own instruments, etc. and then the documentary jumps to an interview with the director and producer of the documentary and the people who made it. The documentary is great, and worth watching, but if you're like me, you're going to have to really think about what you're watching. I'm sure if you are an outsider, you're going to be thinking about what you just saw and saying "yeah, but". Overall, I would say it's worth watching, but it's definitely not for everyone.

I think this movie would have been great on its own. But it really can't be compared to other documentaries. It has some really cool interviews, some pretty good cinematography, but it is too long. There are some really cool scenes that should have been used in a better way, such as the intro of the band. But you also get some really good footage from the band and a few interviews with the singer's friends and family. It is a very well made documentary about the band and their time in the 80's. I think the best part is the interviews with the band. The best part is also the footage from the time. The problem is that it is too long. It does not have a good point of view and some of the interviews are just too long. So it is just a great documentary and I recommend it to people who love music.

This documentary about the making of "Hollywoodland" has to be one of the best ever. It has the intimate interviews with everyone involved with the film and the behind the scenes footage from the making of the film. They also put together some great interviews with the cast and crew. The music of the film is amazing, especially the first song "A Million Dollars." It is a great soundtrack and a great way to get into the movie. The cast members are great and the film is very entertaining. This is a documentary that you should watch.

The film was kind of long and boring, but was actually very interesting. It's a big story about the music of Strangers. If you are a fan of the band, you will love this film. It was quite the journey. I think the director took the best footage from their first album, and the rest was basically a bunch of songs they never played live. I thought it was a good documentary. I'm not really a big fan of the band, but I found the documentary interesting.

T he music of strangers is one of the greatest and most beloved works of any artist. This documentary examines the music of Stephen Sondheim and the songs he wrote, performed, and recorded during his tenure with The New York Philharmonic. The documentary is narrated by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and stars John Cusack, Michael Cera, Julie Delpy, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Jack Black. I found the film's use of music from the original Broadway musicals rather peculiar. The director seems to be forcing the music into the documentary in an attempt to push the narrative. I found the documentary to be rather boring, and the music to be at times confusing. For example, I found that the music from the original Broadway musicals was extremely dated and repetitive. I also found the music from the new film to be repetitive and repetitive. I am not sure why the music was used in the documentary. The film is somewhat interesting, but not nearly as engaging as I hoped.

Truly this is a beautifully made film about the life of a band, but the whole idea of the film is lost if you know nothing about the band. There is a lot of music in the film, but it is difficult to understand the lyrics. You can listen to the music, but you cannot understand what the lyrics mean. The film is definitely worth watching, but it's not the greatest film you will ever see.

This documentary is about the legendary legendary violinist, Alan Parsons. The film covers his entire life up to the present day and covers some of his most famous concert performances and his wife and family life. The film was well made and informative. The music is very interesting and I would recommend it to anyone interested in music.

This documentary is made to appeal to the fan of The Cure. It's an attempt to keep the band alive and moving forward. The video clips of the band playing in some clubs is interesting but they don't really explain what the band is all about. The music is amazing and many of the fans will be stoked for Cure to return to the stage. The documentary is made by the band themselves and some of the clips are not particularly interesting. However, I do appreciate that the band members and the rest of the band got to talk about their past and how they became a band. It's really cool to hear from these guys who had a dream of making it and achieved it.

I was in my late teens when the Beatles were on top of the world. I was living in a small town in England, and I was obsessed with the music of the Beatles. So, when I saw this documentary, I was shocked. The people interviewed are almost all Beatles fans, and they were all very, very excited about this documentary. The documentary was pretty boring, with lots of music videos, and some interviews of the people that were interviewed. I think the documentary would be better suited for a 20-year-old who's just starting to discover the Beatles. I think the Beatles would have made it a lot better if they had interviewed a bunch of random people. But, if you're a Beatles fan, you'll love this documentary.

I was a little surprised at how many people found this film boring. I loved it. It's a good film with some great moments. The songs are not perfect but they fit well into the overall film. I think the movie should be longer. There are too many scenes where we're not sure if the song is supposed to be about something else, and the music just gets confused. I don't think the film would have been as good if we had a better understanding of the songs. Overall, it's a good film that deserves more attention.

This is a beautiful documentary. The music of Strangers is such a beautiful thing. From the one song, "Ain't No Sunshine" to the amazing "They Don't Know," the score is amazing. The people who do the music have a great sense of humor. They are like a great jazz group. It is a great group of musicians. The documentary is a great way to get to know the people who do the music. It is very interesting to see a few of them and learn about their music and their lives. I think the director and the music group did an excellent job of making this documentary.

From the writer of "American Beauty" and "Citizen Kane" comes this stunning documentary about the music of Dixieland and its influence on the world of jazz. The first half of the film is mainly focused on the rise and fall of Dixieland and how it influenced the music of the 30s and 40s. The second half is about the jazz musicians themselves and how they reacted to the music, including the music's influence on their own lives. These two halves of the film are really well done and really interesting. The second half of the film is also really interesting. It talks about the music of the 20s and 30s, about the musicians themselves and how they reacted to the music. It is really interesting how the music influenced the musicians themselves. The film also includes interviews with people from the music world who were involved with Dixieland and who were involved in the production of the film. The musicians who were interviewed talk about the music, the music of the 20s and 30s, and the music of the jazz scene. The music is really good and the musicians really interesting. This documentary is really interesting and really well done.

In the past, when I was going to school and when I was at the music club, I would meet people who were going to be in the band. They would get backstage, take the camera and start to film their next performance. They would go back to their hotel, bring a small bag with a camera and start filming. I didn't understand why. I just thought it was cool to film the bands. Nowadays, if I want to film a band, I just ask them. If they say yes, I know I'm going to get some great footage. So it's really nice to see that there's a lot of talent out there, but also that people are still going to film bands and share it with the world. And there are more bands that are not doing a lot of interviews, like The Stone Roses, the White Stripes, the Killers, and the Foo Fighters. I'm looking forward to see more bands in the future.

A documentary about the life and times of the British band Queen. What makes it so special is the fact that Queen didn't even know who their lead singer was until they were in the studio for one of their early records. This documentary does a wonderful job of showing the music, the people and the culture that was at the height of Queen's popularity. There are some really great interviews with musicians, artists and fans and it's interesting to see how the Queen legend shaped the music we all know and love. I recommend this documentary to anyone who is into the music of Queen, especially fans of the band.

I'm not a big fan of old time rock & roll, but I did like the idea of having a documentary about one of the most iconic musicians of all time. I'm a big fan of "Planet Earth" so I was a little skeptical about this documentary. I'll admit, it was a little disjointed at times. It also seemed like the filmmaker had a hard time setting up a proper rhythm. It felt like he was coming up with ideas while listening to the music. But overall, it was an interesting documentary and I'm sure some people will enjoy it. It's worth seeing if you like music, but I think most people will be disappointed.

I was surprised to see that this documentary, which I did not know was being made, was a good one. I expected a cheesy, but cool, documentary about a bunch of music fans and their obsession for a band. Instead, I got a thoughtful, thoughtful documentary about the music industry, about the way it is and how it is changing and how it's changing. While the documentary is a bit overlong, the people who have been interviewed are very interesting and likable. The documentary is not all doom and gloom and it makes you appreciate the musicians a little more. It is still a really good documentary about how music is changing and how it is changing. I don't understand how the music industry can be so interested in making a documentary about a band, but it is such a great way to get into the minds of people who have nothing to do with the music industry.

I found the documentary to be good. It was well made and showed some beautiful photos of the Grateful Dead concerts. I thought it was worth the money to go see it in the theater, but I think the audience will enjoy it more if they go to the movies. I thought the interviews with the Dead were very good, as well as the music. I found the music to be very good, and would recommend it to any Dead fan.
