Bjarke Ingels started out as a young man dreaming of creating cartoons. Now, he has been named "one of architecture's biggest innovators" by The Wall Street Journal and one of The 100 Most Influential People on the planet by TIME Magazine. BIG TIME follows Bjarke during the course of 7 years (2009-2016), while he struggles to finish his biggest project so far. We are let into Bjarke's creative processes as well as the endless compromises that his work entails, and we are on the side when his personal life starts putting pressure on him, too. In addition to the recently opened architectural marvel VIA 57 West (625 West 57th Street), Bjarke Ingels' company Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) was given the task of designing and building one of the skyscrapers which will replace Two World Trade Center in Manhattan. While Bjarke is creating these buildings, which will change the New York skyline, he is hit by health-related issues. The Film offers an intimate look into the innovative and ambitious Danish architect, whom the entire world is celebrating as a genius.

This is a fantastic film with an incredible cast of British artists, musicians, filmmakers and actors. It is an amazingly well put together film about a group of people all looking to create their own version of The Beatles. But before you can get your fill of the excellent performances and brilliant music, there is also a lot of talk about the music, in addition to the in-depth interview sections. The interviews are extremely interesting and you will see a lot of different opinions about the music. This film also contains a great deal of information about the Beatles and their music. In particular, we see information about the early days of The Beatles, who would go on to become a massive success with their music. This is also a great film for fans of the music, with many of the stars and musicians who have been involved in the music also having great talks with the filmmakers. And the film is also extremely entertaining. The editing is excellent, with very little cut. It is always very interesting to hear some of the anecdotes and in-depth interviews that the filmmakers go on. I really enjoyed the film and will definitely be purchasing it when it comes out on DVD.

This is a very well made documentary, very engaging, and very well done. I do agree with the comments on the previous comment, that it is not for everyone, but not for everyone either. You will most likely be disappointed by it, but I would not discourage you from watching it. It is well worth it!

This is a great documentary about the history of cinema from the 1930's to the present day. It talks about the one and only moment when the American Film Institute (AFI) began to recognize as a major voice of the art form and the writers, directors, and actors who made this possible. From the groundbreaking "All Those People" in 1939 to the more recent films of many others (Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights", Alan Rudolph's "Logan's Run", etc.) this documentary discusses all aspects of cinema and shows how the history of film is a story of many heroes and villains. It really gets into the mind of the people who created the great classics and shows them at work on making films in the 1930's and 40's. This is a movie about American cinema and the most important aspect of this is to see how these great directors, writers, and actors made their films and what they were trying to tell to the public. It is a treat for any film lover or anyone who cares about history in general.

One of the best films I've seen in a long time. It's a German documentary, which I had never heard of. It is actually based on a Norwegian comic strip, which is very interesting and has a very well written and acted story. I just loved the story and the style. And I was so pleased that there was finally something new to watch! It shows how cartoons can be really funny, as well as really sad. I hope this is a good start for a documentary series. And that is the best thing of all: that you never know what will happen next!

It's an eye opener in every way. Most people have heard the news, yet we've never even heard the name of this man. Many don't know his name. He's been so neglected, he needs your help. If you've ever been to a college campus, you've probably heard about this man. Most of us have never had the pleasure of meeting him. He's a professor, but he's in the library all day. We heard of this man for years, but it was so long ago we never knew how the situation would change for us. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's been two years. And there's still so many people who don't know how to relate to him, or feel safe with him. We didn't know what to do, we were so afraid he'd get in trouble. No one in this room had ever met him, but we've heard about him. The faces we recognize from television, from news, we're so afraid to meet him. So this is what happens when we have someone like him. But the situation has changed for us. This is how it happens. We're getting older, and we realize he's been gone so long, he's forgotten about us. But we don't know how to handle it. We don't know if he would be an example for us, for his family, for our whole family, for our whole community. So we're taking his name, we're taking his name, and we're remembering. When we are older, when we have a family, we will call him. We will reach out, we will do whatever we can. This is how we do it.

I've never seen such a personal and nuanced film of a topic as this. This film tells a story that must be told to every man, woman, and child in America. I hope we can take a lesson from this film and use it to create the most compassionate society possible. In many of the countries, the refugee crisis is something of a media circus but this film gives an honest and insightful picture of how people are suffering from the lack of basic necessities that we all need. In my opinion, the most important thing to do for our fellow men and women in the world is to help them out, because they are the ones who will bring us together as brothers. When we are all free, we are free.

I was browsing the movie section on the Netflix website and I came across this documentary about Lars and the Real World. I was immediately drawn in and I decided that I would pay for the rental of it. I decided to watch the whole thing and I was truly blown away. This is a fantastic movie about a rock band and the making of this movie. It's really amazing. The subjects that are discussed in this documentary are some of the most important topics in music history. The performances that are discussed are also some of the most beautiful and beautiful performances that I have ever seen. The idea that Lars was right for the role, the personalities that he brought to the role, and the performances that he delivered are just fantastic. And Lars's dedication to the project, not to mention the other people that worked on the film are very interesting as well. The documentary shows many scenes from the making of this film that are really funny, touching, or just really amazing. It really shows the dedication and care that Lars and the other people put into making the movie. I thought that this was a great documentary and if you don't like rock music, but really dig documentaries, then I strongly recommend it to you. It's definitely a film you won't regret watching. Go and rent it!

How many people in history have been happy with their lives? If we compare the happiness of the typical German and a person in the USA. How many happy people is there? Only a very small number.

The titular film explores the progress of the young Danish director's career, starting in the mid-1980s as a relatively unknown artist in his home country. This all-day documentary tells the story of Ingels' life, from the early films to his most recent breakthrough, American Splendor, with interviews with his contemporaries and his fans. The viewer can see how, at a young age, he had difficulties with his parents and siblings, then had to work long hours to pay for school, and eventually tried to make a living as a director. As a result, he never fully fulfilled his potential. At the end, Ingels tells his story in a way that is both humorous and inspiring, and has the viewer do their own homework as well as his own.

This is the most important documentary I've ever seen. As a journalist, I think it was very important to try to create a public dialogue about "what is the future of the working class?". I think that was the best part of this documentary. There was some thought put into this, and the concern of the producers. They did not gloss over the issue or dismiss it as "somehow impossible". What was also very important, was that people were speaking in their own voices, and not the voices of politicians or media, or the voices of trade unions or other "interest groups". I'm not sure this will happen, but hopefully the next documentary that I will see will be as powerful as this one.

The film is a great visual treat for the eye, it looks great. I was impressed with the quality of the film. The director made the best of the location and the actors did a fine job. I can't wait to see it again on DVD.

My name is Lamberto Larka. I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was not very pleasant when I saw the movie on HBO. But, it was so difficult to watch the same things I already saw. The problem with this movie is that we don't have any choice but to listen to all the bad points of the media. We are always inundated with news about the violence of the people of this country, so it is necessary to keep up. I think the director did a great job. He shows us what is going on in the country, even though it is very difficult to watch. At first, I thought that this was a documentary. And then I started to realize that it is a movie. He has tried to show us the reality of our lives. We want to watch it, because we are interested in the history and culture of this country. We know that this is a country with lots of problems, so it is important to show the situation.

This documentary is really special and makes you feel like you're there. It's a long way from a Hollywood movie to the real life of a man in a cinema. The journey of Bjork is great and I felt the love for her. But, a big part of the film is about the fans and I must say, they really know how to make a movie. The movie does not feel like a Hollywood movie but more like a documentary. The people behind it really wanted to make this movie and they did it. If you liked movies like Wolf Creek and The Hurt Locker, this is a great movie for you. I recommend this movie to anyone who is not a fan of Hollywood movies but want to see something different.

This is a must-see documentary. It's really a movie-made-for-t.v. It makes you realize that just because a filmmaker can't come up with a movie, doesn't mean that the film is bad. It's good because it's not trying to be something that it isn't, but rather it's an honest reflection of what people are really like in the real world. It's a lot better than any other documentary made recently. I especially liked the interviews with the people involved in the making of the film. The last part was really interesting because it showed people who are involved in it, and how it really affected their lives, not just for a few days, but over the course of years. Very interesting, very interesting.

This documentary is a very well made, I would say more than good, and done with great sense and the best of intention. I would say the documentary is very different than the actual documentary, but that's really not a bad thing because it will make you think a bit more about how you see the world. This is the kind of documentary that makes you think and understand a bit more what you have seen and more people that have not seen it than the ones who did see it. It's an excellent film, but not really a documentary in the strictest sense of the word. It is an old story that has been told in many other ways, but it is still a very special one that will give you a lot of inspiration and gives you a little insight into the power of those powerful people, who don't like to be misunderstood. This documentary is also a very artistic film, and very exciting and informative. It has to be one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I recommend this film to everyone.

I was shocked to learn that I was being filmed in a real-life situation. Before I had heard of the film, I had thought it was some "indie" movie. I was wrong. This is one of the most important movies of all times and is a must-see for anyone with an interest in history. The film is about the De Smedt era, and the start of the communist power in Sweden. The documentary is not about Sweden, it's about people who were around during the time period and their reactions. The movie takes you inside the film crew and their conversations. The interviews are from people who are close to the producers, and their feelings are almost the same as those in the studio. The director, Lars Knudsen, makes it very clear that he was able to get his information from people who were involved in the film. The film is not so much about communism or the history of Sweden. It is more about how the Swedish people reacted to the changes that were coming in their society. The end result is that there are no perfect, or even really good, people in this film. The people we are talking about are just as flawed as the rest of us. The point of view the director takes is that of a true outsider. I think this is one of the most important documentaries I have ever seen. It should be seen by everyone.

It's been a while since I've seen a documentary about the movie industry, that doesn't rely on hype and special effects. This film is an excellent documentary on how the movie industry is becoming all about marketing and marketing and marketing and what's wrong with that. The film focuses on all aspects of the movie business, from casting, to editing, to production, to distribution, to marketing. It also follows the people who work in the movie industry and their experiences. It's a great, exciting, and emotional documentary about how the movie industry is making a big difference in the lives of those involved. It's great to see so many different perspectives. I recommend this documentary to anyone who loves the movie business, or anyone who works in the movie industry.

Wow. What a look into a brilliant film. I don't think I have ever seen an Ingels film that I didn't like, and this one is no exception. This film is a fascinating look into a man's career, and how it affects his family. I have been waiting for this film for years and my friend has since been looking for it on DVD. This is such an amazing film. I hope that some of the people who have been watching this film will get the chance to see it on the big screen and I look forward to seeing it again.

This documentary is a masterclass in how to create a truly compelling story with a well-constructed structure, rich in allusion to the period in which it was created. What is most interesting is that this was the first film by Lars von Trier, the same man who brought to our attention his masterpiece, the the Danish film Nymphomaniac. Here, Trier not only takes us through the lives of the prostitutes and the prostitutes' clients, but also the lives of the prostitutes themselves. This includes much more than just talking about them. The characters, most of whom are dead now, are all real people who are remembered only through the movie. The film has a very interesting story structure, with a slightly slow start and ending. It also has a great cast, but in particular it should be commended to the editing and the amount of editing and montage that the film contains. The film is a great demonstration of how to use a DVD, which allows us to see how much was lost to the dust of time, while being able to see the great old masters, showing what they are capable of. It is a great film. 10/10

It's amazing how big, widely held ideas are that people cannot see clearly. This documentary is one of the best documentary I've ever seen. It touches on important topics such as how political ideas and social values are formed, or become entrenched, and what happens when they become bad. It also looks at the political system as a whole, and the negative aspects of the system. Overall, the film does a good job in conveying the truth. There are certain important subjects that the film fails to convey, such as the theory of evolution. For example, the "man" is not a fish, and should not be used as a metaphor for evolution. The film is more for people who are interested in the current state of politics and the way it's being carried out. This is the best documentary I've ever seen.
