In 1973, five men and six women drifted across the Atlantic on a raft as part of a scientific experiment studying the sociology of violence, aggression and sexual attraction in human behavior. Although the project became known in the press as 'The Sex Raft', nobody expected what ultimately took place on that three month journey. Through extraordinary archive material and a reunion of the surviving members of the expedition on a full scale replica of the raft, this film tells the hidden story behind what has been described as 'one of the strangest group experiments of all time.'

This is a beautiful film about a young woman named Gloria (who is also a great musician) who got the idea for her own album and made it. She is extremely talented and also a very amazing singer. I really enjoyed the documentary and the whole process of getting this story to be told. I really wish there was more information about the people that Gloria met along the way. I think if you watch it, you'll be very impressed.

I saw this documentary at the Toronto Film Festival and thought it was well-done. I am impressed with the choice of subjects and the direction in which it was taken. The interviews with people involved in the movie were illuminating. I am impressed with the fact that this was not a glossy production. I am also impressed with the fact that the story is based on fact, not fiction. The way in which the filmmakers approached this subject matter is fascinating. They take the time to interview people who were actually involved in the project and ask them the questions that they would have wanted to be asked. I feel that this is an important story and would highly recommend it to anyone. This is a story of a well-intentioned man who never wanted to hurt anyone, but who ultimately broke his promise and ended up hurting others. However, this is not a story of a Hollywood producer who lost control of the project, but of an honest, brave, and compassionate individual who used his talents to serve the public interest. The filmmakers are to be commended.

One of the best documentaries I have seen in a while. This is a very dark documentary with no happy ending. It tells the story of several different kids and how their lives were ruined by the drugs, violence and parents that didn't know what to do. The kids were eventually stopped by a cop, but the other kids were also forced to leave the area and move on with their lives. But the documentary shows that there is a good side to every person, and that there is hope. A lot of people had nothing to live for, but that doesn't mean you have to live without hope. This documentary is very emotional and is definitely a must watch for anyone.

I was captivated by this movie from the very beginning. I was also overwhelmed by the strength and beauty of the African American community. I think it is a beautiful story and I will be re-watching it over and over. I loved the way the director and writers chose to portray the lives of the people who created this beautiful movie. The African American community was represented with respect and sensitivity. I applaud the filmmakers for their work on this project and I look forward to the future of their projects.

I just came from a screening of this film in Vancouver, Canada. This is a great film that makes you think about what is really important in your life. The movie is about a documentary filmmaker, Noah Kagan, who, by using his own camera and a live feed from a small drone, managed to make a documentary about the drone. Kagan, who has a fascination with photography, has learned a lot about photography, photography in general, and drone photography. He has also learned a lot about the drone and about the people who fly drones for fun and profit. He has learned a lot about the drones, and also about the people who fly drones for fun and profit. The documentary is a great story about what it is to be a human, and the people who live by the laws of nature. I was really impressed by the storytelling of the film. I was also impressed by the way the filmmakers and Kagan both portrayed the drone in the movie. They did a great job of making the drone look like a real, working machine. In addition, the story is very well told and it is very well shot. I highly recommend this film.

This movie is a must see. I was forced to watch it by my mother, who is a huge fan of Jenny Lewis. She found out about her death in a news story. I was too young to remember the time. I have been watching the documentary since it first came out and have not stopped. The documentary is a must see for anyone who is a fan of Jenny Lewis, who has been fighting for women's rights, against men who have been raping her. She has been fighting for the rights of women all her life. She will be missed. She has been fighting for women's rights since she was a little girl. She did not give up until she got what she wanted. This movie is a must see for anyone who loves a good documentary.

Very compelling documentary. Every American has a right to know the truth about the so called Vietnam War. I am glad to see that the documentary makers have chosen to keep the full details of the film secret, but I will gladly post the complete version on the internet. This is the most important documentary I have ever seen. If the American people know the truth about the Vietnam War, they will reject the lies of the politicians who created the war and then waged it. I am sure that the filmmakers have access to the archives of the Department of Defense and other government agencies to allow them to bring the story to the public, and to share their findings with the public. I hope that they will also use the film to make sure that the truth about the Vietnam War is finally told. The film is not perfect. There are a couple of obvious "stunts" that are made in the film, such as the "real" interviews with witnesses to the bombing of Hanoi, which are really just a few of the many things that are edited out of the documentary. However, the film is a brilliant piece of filmmaking, and I am sure that the filmmakers will be able to share their findings with the world. I am also happy to see that there is a small group of people who are willing to share their stories with the world about the Vietnam War, and who have chosen to keep their stories secret. My vote for the best documentary of the year, and definitely one of the best documentaries of the year. *

I just came back from watching this film. What a huge disappointment. I have been a huge fan of Justin Kirk since I first saw him on the air. I thought he was great on the show and had a natural style that I could relate to. I think I saw him on a previous show, but I can't remember. He was a very funny and likable person. His comedy is very dark, but he always manages to lighten it up. I don't know how he is able to pull off the comedy while also bringing the character of Tommy to life. He made Tommy a character that you really cared about. Justin's sense of humor is very unique, and I think that is what makes him so entertaining to watch. He did a great job bringing Tommy's life to life. I think he did a fantastic job with what he was given. He did a great job and brought the character to life in a way that I couldn't have ever imagined. I really enjoyed the whole thing. I was very impressed with what Justin did with this film. I thought he did a wonderful job. I don't know if it was the production, or the writing. I don't know. All I know is that he did a fantastic job, and I will be looking forward to his upcoming projects. I also like that he did the story and did it in a way that was very unique and interesting. I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.

I first saw this film at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. It's a deeply moving story of a family coping with the death of their beloved daughter. It's a powerful and moving film. I also saw it at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and was blown away by it. The performances were astounding. I've never been so moved by a film. The story is so powerful and moving that it is hard to watch and completely forget about. I can't say enough about how amazing this film is. I highly recommend it. If you want to know what it's like to lose someone you love, this is the film to watch. Also, if you are considering suicide, watch it to understand that there are so many people who are going through the same thing. I've never been so moved by a film, and I'm glad that I've seen this film. I'm glad I saw it.

I loved this documentary. It showed the forces of corruption that are being used to hide the wrongdoing and crimes of corrupt politicians, and the people who are at the center of the investigation. I was fascinated to learn that there were people who were not in on the conspiracy, and they had to watch what they said in the press. The ending was shocking, but also disturbing. The people who are responsible for the cover-ups are going to be held accountable, and the people who are involved with the cover-ups are going to be held accountable. I am looking forward to what this documentary will reveal. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in what is going on in our world today.

I really enjoyed this film. As a Danish filmmaker myself, it is a great piece of work. The director has given us a whole new way of telling a story. He has put us in the middle of the decision making process of a very sad and difficult situation. This is an important part of our lives. This movie has inspired me to do a lot of work and it is inspiring me to be more careful about what I use to eat and how I eat it. I strongly recommend this film to everyone. I was amazed by the film and I really can't wait to see it again. The film is not only about the Danish people, it is about the entire world. I know there are many people who don't like this film, but I think that it is a very important movie and it has an important message to be told. I'm really looking forward to see it again and I hope that it will be as great as it was when I saw it.

I just watched this documentary and I have to say it was incredibly powerful. I was blown away by the story of how a very young boy, who is like any other, suddenly finds his life in a whole other light. He has to start from a very very young age, but he finds his way back to the truth of who he is. It is like he is being pulled into a reality he never knew existed. I feel like this is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It really touches you, and the video editing is great. I think this is definitely a must see. I don't know why it hasn't received a wider release yet. I recommend this to anyone who is into history and is interested in the human condition.

I was first drawn into watching this film after reading the comments of others. After seeing the film I have to agree. The first time I saw it I thought it was the most appalling thing I had ever seen. The second time I watched it I saw the utter brutality of it and I found myself laughing. I have since seen it three times, and it has not disappointed me once. It is just as painful to watch as it is to read about. It is a story of a man who got to the end of his rope, but was never able to escape. The film shows the gradual deterioration of his health and the struggle of his wife to support him, with the help of a great doctor. The film shows how he is always trying to escape, and how he has tried to find a way out. What he has to do is go back to his old profession, and to his wife and children. I have seen it twice and I cannot wait to see it again. I am also happy to see that this story has made it to the big screen. I am so glad that it has gotten the attention it deserves. I am very grateful to have been able to see it, and it is one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen. If you are interested in seeing a film that will make you laugh, cry and will make you think about what we are doing to our planet, then watch it. It will be very difficult to get it out of your system.

While I have not seen the film yet, I will do so very soon. I was highly impressed with the work by the team, and I was moved by the film. The portrayal of a poor country in an era of global crisis, the visuals, the music, the language, the situations, the despair, the humanity of the people. It was a real eye opener. I believe there was an audience for this film, and I believe that the people who would not be interested in the subject matter, were the same people that would not be interested in the film. I thought the movie had a realistic and powerful portrayal of the economic crisis, and the need to make a change in the world. I think that the film was well done and informative. It is worth watching for the visualizations and the sound effects. I believe that the film will have a greater impact on the people of Haiti, than any other documentary I have seen.

This film will touch you and make you feel good, it is a must see. I hope there will be more movies like this one in the future. I was very impressed with how the film portrayed the subculture of the black man in the 50's and 60's, and how they were treated in the movie. I loved the way the film portrayed the African-American girl who was being abused by her father and also her sister, and how her mother handled the situation. I loved the scene when she was walking down the street and the man tried to rape her. And the scene when she is in her room, she is crying, and her father comes in and tries to comfort her, and she responds by pulling his leg, and she tells him, "Do you want me to tell the police?" and he replies, "No, I don't want you to tell the police." All the actors did a great job and did a great job portraying the era in which the film was set. It is very inspiring to see the growth of society and the growth of people. I hope this film will be seen by as many people as possible. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has ever had an African-American friend, or if you just want to see a great movie about African-Americans, go to see this film.

I first saw this documentary on the History Channel, it was an introduction to the book on which it was based. I thought the idea was great, it told a great story and was very informative. I was looking forward to this documentary. I'm so glad I had watched it. I enjoyed it. The acting was superb. It wasn't long before I had a slight connection to the characters. The use of "homages" to other films, including films from my childhood, was excellent. I had never heard of this director before I saw this, but he had such a great feel for the subject matter. I thought the music was wonderful. I also liked the way they used humor and romance to illustrate the human condition. I will definitely purchase this documentary when it is released. It will be a classic on my DVD shelf. I wish there were more documentaries like this on the History Channel.

I have to say that I found the movie very entertaining. This film is not a documentary, it is a movie. That makes it very hard for people to relate to. It was filmed in my home. I could not stop laughing. It was a good experience for me. I saw the trailer for the movie and thought it looked like it would be a comedy. I was surprised. I didn't expect to see such a deep story about a transvestite and the struggles of getting his life back on track. I am glad I saw it. It's not just a movie. It's a documentary. I give it a 10.

I was lucky enough to see this film at the Dallas International Film Festival, and I was very impressed. It is a very well-made film, and it really makes you think about our treatment of women in our culture. I highly recommend this film to everyone. The filmmakers are very clever, and they are very aware of the problem and the solutions. I hope they get the funding they need to make more films like this. I also highly recommend that you see this film before you go to see any political movies. You'll be surprised how different things are from what you see in the movie. Also, be prepared for some very profound and disturbing moments.

This film is so well done, it must have been made by an actual filmmaker, someone who has a real interest in telling the truth, or at least trying to. The acting, editing, photography, and set design are all excellent, and so is the whole package. This is a film that I can see being put together again and again, and watching it over and over again, to give it some kind of permanence. I can see why it's been relegated to DVD's, and why it's been released on a regular basis. It's so fascinating, and so sad that these people are still being hunted down, or being murdered, or whatever you want to call it. I think it's very important to be aware of what's happening in the world, and to be able to see the world as it is, and not have it change to suit your desires. If you're not looking for a documentary, and just want to see something entertaining, this is it. If you are looking for a documentary, then it might be a little bit more difficult to find. I think that the best way to see this film is to watch it a few times, so that you can see it at different points in your life. I hope that people who see this film will be inspired to do something, or be inspired to do something about what's going on. I know that I will be, and that I'm going to make sure that I do something about it.

This is an important documentary. It's not sensationalist, it's not about a group of people, it's about a disease that is invisible to the public and to healthcare workers. People don't realize what they are facing. I loved this film and wish I could find it again.
