Filmed with vérité intimacy for almost a decade, QUEST is the moving portrait of an American family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, parents Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" Rainey raise a family while navigating the poverty and strife that grips their neighborhood. They nurture a community of artists in their basement home music studio, but even this creative sanctuary can't always keep them safe. Epic in scope, QUEST is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, commitment, healing and hope.

I've never been a fan of 'Rocky Horror', but this movie is for me one of the greatest films ever made. I have a lot of knowledge about the Rocky Horror film and all of the behind-the-scenes stories, but I have yet to watch this film in its entirety. The performances are incredible, the cinematography is just right and the music is amazing. This movie is great. This is the perfect movie for anyone who has ever wanted to know about the making of Rocky Horror.

After a long time, I found a gem, and I can't find any words to express how great this movie is. If you haven't seen this movie, you should go see it. The first thing you see in this movie is a cliff-hanger ending, and you'll probably be asking yourself, "What happened?" The best part is that there is no clear answer. If you're like me, you'll be asking yourself "What happened? What happened to that crazy kid? What happened to his mother?" The reason this movie is so good is because of the special effects and the camera-work. The special effects are awesome, and you don't have to be a gamer to enjoy this movie. The camera-work is perfect. The music is awesome. And, of course, the acting. So, go see this movie, you won't regret it. 10/10

The National Endowment for the Arts is the only national organization to offer a generous $2 million award to a young artist in the film "Blackbird," about a man who was lost in the great Depression of the 1930s and had to keep his art hidden from the hungry masses. In the midst of this crisis, "Blackbird" was a source of inspiration for many artists, including William Eggleston (whose work is displayed throughout the film) and Lorin Roussos (who was a fugitive in the 1930s and was then arrested and sent to the Nazi concentration camp). The award from the NEA allows Mr. Roussos to continue to pursue his art and to open up the world of the artists he knew. And in a way, it was a gift from the government to the artists, who in turn received much support from the people of the country who helped finance the arts.

I had been looking forward to seeing this film for a long time and I was absolutely delighted to find that it was as entertaining as I had hoped. It had everything you could hope for and more. A great story, the cast was superb and the music was phenomenal. I am extremely proud of the work that the BBC did on this. I also was extremely impressed with the overall quality of the film. The use of home videos of music in the film was superb and the level of detail that was put into the editing was superb. This is an excellent film and I recommend it to everyone. It is highly recommended.

I'm not a member of the LGBT community, but I know many people who are, and I can say with confidence that this documentary does a very good job of explaining what it's like to be gay and why some people do things like hide their homosexuality from others. It's not a happy story. People who are gay will be angry that they are not as accepted as others. I'm not ashamed of my sexuality, but I've been through some rough times. If people were born with the ability to love and be loved, they would do so for the love of everyone around them. It's sad that people who are still trying to change their lives have to do so through the shame and fear of their sexual orientation. This is a story about the people who love each other and are trying to love others, but can't always tell the truth about themselves. This is a story about the people who try to be brave and tell the truth, but are afraid to come out.

Although this documentary does cover some ground that most of us don't know about, it is nevertheless an incredibly enlightening experience. This film starts off with a series of interviews with a handful of young people. We learn about the reasons why these kids have not only become successful musicians but have also gone on to win awards and receive critical acclaim. We learn about their past lives, their struggles and their future goals. There is also a section about the relationship between the father and son. The father is not the father and neither is the son. The father's music is only one piece of his life and not a constant source of inspiration and inspiration in the son's life. Although the film is a documentary, it does a fine job of showing how people make their own life and what they have achieved in the process. The music is used to explain what these young people have achieved and what the reasons are for their success. For me, this film has given me a lot of insight into the music business. The fact that a young kid could make such an impact on the music industry, shows that the music business is as much about talent as it is about money. Overall, this documentary is an extremely enlightening experience and is a must watch for anyone who has ever been in a band or music scene.

Although I found the documentary to be very moving and educational, I do have to say that the movie is a bit too long and some of the facts may be inaccurate. It's a bit like a movie made by a former state trooper who says he's not a big fan of the war but he still believes in it. The one thing I didn't like about the movie was the extreme rhetoric that the soldier used when he talked about the conflict. It was like he was trying to make the movie to be something it was not. This is probably why he wasn't in the movie a whole lot. If you're looking for an unbiased view of the Vietnam War, then I highly recommend this movie. It is very important to learn from history but sometimes the movie is a little too long. I give it a 10/10.

I had heard about the documentary about the life of The Beatles and all I could say was WOW! What a life they lived and what a gift they were to the world. They had it all! The music, the money, the adventure, the support, the love, the success and the unbelievable story. I have seen this movie 4 times already and every time I see it, I feel like I'm living it. This is a great movie. It shows all the true side of the Beatles, it shows the pain, the joy, the disappointment, the strength and the hard work of all the Beatles. It shows how they made music and how they made people feel. This is a true story of an incredible life. This is a movie that should be seen by everyone. A must see. 10/10

I am a big music fan and always listen to new music and the music in this film is amazing. It's a very inspiring film with an amazing story line. The documentary also gives you a sense of hope and optimism and how important it is to live a good life. The film is very well done and very well directed. The music in the film is amazing. I was amazed that they chose the music for this film. The way they chose the music and the way they used the music was very well done. The film is very inspirational and is a great film for anyone who loves music.

A good documentary that I would highly recommend, especially to those who are familiar with modern-day hip hop. The film does an excellent job in exploring the roots of hip hop and what influences it, and what we as an audience can expect to see in the future. The music itself is something to enjoy and I definitely think this documentary was a great addition to the hip hop canon. Also, the film is very informative, from the history of hip hop to the current social issues facing hip hop, the film will definitely teach people a thing or two. I definitely recommend this film for those who want to know more about hip hop and its roots.

The film was amazing. The kids were so enthusiastic and I was very touched by their stories. I was amazed to learn that they were doing this project and was very impressed that they did it themselves. I was so touched by the compassion and the strength that they showed. The idea was great and so creative. The children had a lot of courage to make a movie that was done by their own children. I felt so inspired by the story and I can't wait to see the movie. I really hope that the children will get the chance to do it.

I saw this movie a few weeks ago. It was one of the first I've seen in the theater. I have been a big movie fan since the 90s. The message of this movie is so powerful and so uplifting. I loved it so much that I've seen it 4 or 5 times. I've seen the same movie 4 times now and I'm still on the edge of my seat the entire time. I hope to see this movie again and I'm looking forward to the sequel. I think it will be a lot better. It should have had more recognition and has a lot more elements in it. This movie was just fantastic. I don't understand why some people are not impressed. It really shows that a lot of people believe that movies are only for entertainment. If that's the case, I'm sure that they should get off their high horse and realize that movies are supposed to entertain people. They're not supposed to be thought provoking. And that is what this movie is. It's about people who are connected to their emotions and they are able to express themselves. I think that the message is so powerful and it's uplifting. It's not a happy movie. It's not a sad movie. It's not a depressing movie. It's a movie that will make you feel good and that will make you want to see the movie over and over again. It's a movie that will make you happy and make you want to watch it over and over again. I can't recommend it enough.

Just a note to all you who think this is a bad film, just go and watch the DVD version and you will see that this film is one of the best documentaries ever made. This documentary is not to be missed by anyone!

I never watch a documentary, but I saw this movie because of the movie "This Is Your Brain On Drugs" starring Marky Mark and Ellen DeGeneres. So I thought I would watch this. I was not disappointed at all. It was the most detailed and interesting documentary I have ever seen. It really gives you a glimpse into the world of drugs. Not only the story, but the people who take them. I think it was really great and the actors who did the narration, did a great job. The people who played the characters did an excellent job. I am sure this movie would be a great one for many. I hope that it gets the recognition it deserves. It is really something to watch. If you are a parent or a parent-teacher in a school, you would be interested in watching this movie. The story is really worth watching. It is definitely worth the price of the rental. I give this movie 10/10. It is worth the watch.

I know I'm not the only person who watches this movie, and I can't help it. It's just so well done, and so entertaining, and so memorable. And what a wonderful soundtrack! Not only is it wonderful, it's a story that is pretty original, and well-told. I can't wait to see this movie again. So many things can happen. It's amazing. I've been writing for years about this movie, and I still love it. It's just amazing. 10/10

The movie was excellent. I really enjoyed watching it. I thought the story was very inspiring. I highly recommend seeing it. I would give it a 10 out of 10.

It is clear to me now that the greatest value of the movie is not the dialog, or the actors. It is the great work of the director and the producer. This is a great example of a movie that has been forgotten. Even now, even as a part of my life, I can't watch it. I think I would rather have been told the whole story of the movie, without seeing the actors, and it would have been just as good. But, this is not the case. It is a great movie. I am proud of it. I really hope that a sequel comes along. I really want to see it.

This is the best documentary I have seen in a very long time. It's about the world of sports, politics, religion, and the human spirit. I think it's amazing how everything in the world can be turned into something spectacular, and the sports world has been doing it for a very long time. This is a documentary that shows us what it's like to live in the most chaotic, chaotic world we could ever imagine. It's a documentary that will make you feel your life is beautiful and unique and this documentary will make you believe it! It's not about the game, it's about the people, and this is why I love it. I have seen the movie many times, and I always love the best sports documentaries. It's always about the people, and about how the game makes people feel, and how the game can change people's lives. It's a documentary that will make you laugh, cry, and make you feel so happy.

This is the most important documentary I have ever seen. I've seen it twice now and I still can't get enough of it. I watched it about two weeks ago and it still made me cry. It is a testament to the dedication of these individuals to this cause and how amazing they are. If you haven't seen it yet, I strongly suggest that you see it now. The director of this film has been called a "citizen journalist". He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. I would also like to point out that the producer of this film is a very talented individual and a true artist. He is going to be a superstar in the future. I highly recommend this film to anyone.

When I saw that The Mask was playing in the theaters, I was like a kid in a candy store. The Mask is a movie that was always meant to be shown in theaters, but it didn't get the exposure it deserved. As I watched this movie, I was able to understand why. The Mask is a movie that is much more than just a horror film. It's a movie that will make you feel like you're on the edge of your seat. The whole movie is so over the top, that it was a little bit scary at times. The whole movie has a more serious feel to it than you might think. I think that it's a great movie. It's definitely a movie that you'll want to see a lot of times.

I'm pretty sure this is a "must see" documentary. I love this documentary for so many reasons. The acting was awesome, the story of the Holocaust is well-told, and the actors/actresses really deliver a strong performance. I know I'm in the minority, but I really loved this documentary. It really helped me to understand how bad it really was and how lucky I am that I am not Jewish. It's like a little bible in a bottle, with the story of the Holocaust and how the Jews survived and moved on. This documentary is a great read, and it's so worth it!
