Steve McQueen truly is an American Icon. One of America's most endearing and intriguing movie stars, he "is still the King of Cool" according to Esquire Magazine-50 years after the zenith of his career. The strangest thing about him, however, is barely known, despite countless biographies and articles. Steve McQueen was a believer in Jesus Christ. On the surface McQueen had everything he could want-fame, cars, homes, more money than he could spend in a lifetime. An avid fan of the actor (and owner of a replica of McQueen's car in the classic film Bullitt), Pastor Greg Laurie hits the road in his mint Mustang, traveling the country in search of the true, untold story of McQueen's redemption-filled final chapters.

American icon is a great movie. McQueen was an American icon in the late 60's and 70's. He was a huge film star in the late 60's and 70's. The movie shows that he had an amazing story. McQueen's father died when he was a young child. His father was a rich man who was able to buy the rights to his son's career. The story of McQueen's life shows how he became famous, and how he was able to make a lot of money. The movie is very touching and interesting. McQueen is a very interesting man. He was an amazing actor. The movie is very well done and a great movie.

McQueen's films have always been about the very essence of Americana. I have loved his films since I first saw them in the theatre. I have seen all of them and I am still watching them. I have seen the latest, "McQueen: American Icon", and it is a masterpiece. I have to admit that I am not very familiar with McQueen's work, but this film is just amazing. The first half of the film is a brilliant exploration of the roots of the American culture, and the very essence of the American way of life. The second half of the film is a great analysis of the connection between culture and society. McQueen is a brilliant filmmaker and he has been for many years. This film is a great tribute to his talent and I would recommend this film to anyone.

McQueen has always been a favourite of mine. His performances have always been spectacular. I have never understood why he has not received more acclaim for his performances. I guess he has always been a bit of a mysterious figure, and that has not always translated well into his performances. With this film, I am glad that I have finally seen the true and uncut version. I really enjoyed it and have to say that I will watch this film many times more. It is very well made and directed. I would like to say that McQueen is a man of great talent and that is something that I admire. He has done a great job and deserves the accolades that he has received. The film is very well shot and very well edited. I would like to add that this film is very well acted, and it is a very well made film. I also liked the fact that the film was not just a biopic of McQueen, but also a film about the actor himself. I also think that the film was very well made, and I think that it deserves all of the acclaim that it has received. I really enjoyed it, and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to learn more about McQueen.

I'm a big McQueen fan, and I was a little skeptical of this film. But I was blown away. The movie is a mixture of interviews with McQueen's wife, daughter, and friends. McQueen's life was a very difficult and interesting life. It's hard to find a documentary that focuses on one man's life, and this is one of the best I've ever seen. It's a sad story, but also a beautiful and inspiring one. If you haven't seen this movie, watch it now!

This is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. The way McQueen describes the history of the film industry and how he made it and the way he describes his influences on film are incredible. If you want to know how great a person is and how they got to where they are, this is a great documentary. This is a true story and I hope to see more documentaries like this one.

I have seen this film over the past few days. I was very surprised by the positive comments I had heard from others about this film. It is very touching. I have seen this film many times, but it never gets old. The interviews are always fascinating. This film shows the truth behind the controversial movie, 'Bullitt'. Bullitt was a drama about a journalist who was fired from the newspaper because of a story that was never published. After many years of denial, Bullitt finally admitted to the real reason for his firing. This film will make you feel like you are at Bullitt's funeral. You will feel so happy for him. I was especially moved by the interview with his son, who said that he was so angry at his father for the lies he told him, but now he feels sorry for him. Bullitt was a very talented man, but he was also a very sad man. He was a very good person, and I hope he gets his life back on track. I was very touched by the documentary. I think this film will make you feel like you are at Bullitt's funeral. This is a very good film, and it will make you feel good.

I first became aware of the McQueen story when I saw the documentary about him in 2005. I thought it was great. I didn't know it was his real life story. It is the story of a man who was born into wealth but whose life was forever changed by the Vietnam War. He is the real life story of an American hero. It was amazing to see the way the documentary was shot and edited. It is very true to life. I am so glad that this movie was made. It is an awesome film that you should see. I hope that the people who made this film don't stop making it. It is so good.

A true "American Icon" of the first order, McQueen was an outstanding actor and an icon to the world of motor sports. He has been a part of some of the most important events of our time. Whether it was on the silver screen, the racetrack, or the track, McQueen's story was not just about racing, but about the American dream and the way in which people can overcome the odds to achieve their dreams. McQueen's story has touched people of all walks of life and it is the story of how a young man found his way to the pinnacle of his profession and how he was able to overcome the odds and win. McQueen has lived an extraordinary life and deserves to be remembered for all of the good things that he has done in his life.

This is an amazing documentary about one of the most amazing American athletes of all time. It is a very personal look at how McQueen became a world champion, the various factors that made him a great athlete, and his personal struggles as a young man, during which he had to go through the very real trauma of losing his mother. The documentary is very well made, and it is not at all an easy film to watch. McQueen is very animated and animated is something he does very well. I'm sure you will not be disappointed by the film. The documentary is very well done, and it is well worth the watch. I highly recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of the great American athlete McQueen. It is very well done, and I think anyone who is a fan of McQueen will find this film very interesting.

This is a documentary that follows the life of British actor Michael Caine, who is now famous for his role in "The Silence of the Lambs" and "The King's Speech". It is one of the best films of the year and definitely the best film of the year. I cannot say anything bad about it, I have never seen a documentary that is so good. It is very well made, it is a very thought provoking documentary and it is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I can not think of any other documentary that is as good as this one. This documentary is a must see, if you want to know about the life of Michael Caine, watch this documentary. You will not be disappointed.

I'm not sure what else to say about this. It's not often that I see a documentary that so eloquently and completely explains a man's life, and yet so utterly fascinating. It's as if he was alive for the entire time, not just for a few hours, but for decades. McQueen's life is a story of a man who is capable of incredible things, yet he is not a person to be idolized. He was an extremely interesting man, a man who suffered from an incredible case of dyslexia, yet he was able to do things that would make most people think that they are too dumb to do. He was a very unique individual, a man who did things that would be considered impossible for most people to do. And yet he was able to accomplish all of this, all of these things, in an almost effortless manner. He lived a life of extraordinary accomplishment, and yet it is so very very easy to forget that. This is one of those documentaries that will stay with you for a long time. I've seen it over a hundred times, and I'm not sure I've ever gotten tired of it. It's one of those documentaries that will leave you feeling uplifted and inspired, and yet will leave you wondering about the meaning of life.

I found the film on DVD and I was thrilled to have it! It was an excellent film and it has been well received by the critics. The movie covers all the history of the role of John Wayne, from the early days of the Western films to the 'Lethal Weapon' films, the character of John Wayne is so well portrayed that it is amazing to watch him on screen. It is also amazing to see him today as he is now in his late 70's and is still very much in shape. I have never seen a film that has been able to portray John Wayne the way this film has. I highly recommend this film to anyone that wants to see a great film.

I've never seen a documentary so fascinating and so good. The book itself was great but McQueen's personal interviews made it so much better. The information he gets from his friends and the people he met along the way is fascinating. The only other documentary that came close to what this movie did was "The Beast and the Blood," which I think is an even better documentary than this one. If you want to know what the craziness that was the 1970's was like, you should watch this movie.

I first watched this film when I was a teenager and loved it. I was too young to appreciate the nuance of the music and the characters, but it still resonated with me. The film is about a musician, and his friendship with a teenage boy who was a school dropout. It's a story of perseverance, and of how a small group of people can make a difference. The film is both powerful and sad. The music is wonderful, and the film is a great example of how to get a documentary made. A must see for any music fan.

I am a fan of the original "Rocky" film, so I have been following the movie as closely as possible. I am very pleased with the results. McQueen's acting is great. He seems like a very natural actor. I thought the fight scenes were also very well done. Overall, a very good movie. I highly recommend it.

I don't want to write a spoiler because I do not want to give away the movie, but I do want to point out that I did not know what to expect from this documentary. The acting was great, the subject matter was very interesting, and the overall presentation was very thoughtful and balanced. I think this documentary should be a part of every film student's curriculum, because it will open your eyes to the realities of the world. I hope you will give it a chance, because it is definitely worth your time.

What an amazing documentary. I was extremely moved. The actor who played the main character in the film, did an excellent job portraying the young man. It is very difficult to capture a person's emotions. I felt for the young man and I was just shocked. I'm so glad he was able to express his feelings and the way he was able to do it, was amazing. The documentary was very powerful. I could see the anger, the fear, the sadness, and the confusion of the young man. I have seen the film many times and I still feel the same way about it. I would recommend it to everyone.

This is one of the best documentaries I've seen in a long time. It really focuses on McQueen's career and his relationship with the women in his life. This documentary is very interesting and I hope it gets a DVD release.

You can't be too careful. This is a film that is like a good friend who gets away for a week. He never comes back, but it's a great story. This is not a documentary. It is a documentary of his life. It is a story of a man who has been a legend for so long. His story is told in his own words. He has lived a life of adventure and has a message that you can take to heart. If you want to learn about a man who lived a life of adventure and adventure, this is a must see.

This is a very well made film. The film is based on a true story. The whole point of the film is that McQueen is a symbol of the American Dream and how it can be destroyed. In this film we see that he never stopped dreaming and he was always chasing the dream of being a world champion. This is a great film. I highly recommend it.

In 1980, Steven McQueen was an obscure Hollywood stuntman who was getting nowhere with the big studios. He was a renegade and a rebel who took a stand and said "This is my job, not yours." He was never satisfied with the jobs he had been given and started his own company. He started out with a high-wire act and then built his company into a Hollywood stuntman powerhouse. McQueen was a master of his craft and his unique style was recognized by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. I was fortunate enough to see this documentary on DVD. I was able to talk with Steven McQueen and his wife Julie (who had passed away recently) about the process of the making of the documentary, his relationship with the Academy, and the life and times of Steven McQueen. The documentary was very informative and entertaining. I really enjoyed the interview with McQueen. He was very open and honest about his personal life and career. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to know more about Steven McQueen.
