A biographical portrait of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, twentieth century colossus: public intellectual, policy specialist, ambassador and U.S. Senator from New York. The film captures the spirit of Moynihan's remarkable ideas as they evolved over the course of his tumultuous life in postwar America, featuring both the triumphs and the controversies. A poor boy who grew up on the streets of Depression-era NY to become a Harvard professor, Moynihan devoted his decades-long career -- serving both Democratic and Republican administrations -- to battling poverty. Possessed of a natural wit that appealed to both elite and street, Moynihan remains one of the most widely quoted people of his generation. Moynihan's legacy continues to be claimed by both the left and right, even as he defies easy categorization. The film is an exploration into the heady and boisterous world of ideas that helped shape his complex worldview, and the policy prescriptions that have stood the test of time. At a moment of degraded political discourse, MOYNIHAN re-elevates the debate.

This documentary has to be one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. It's well-crafted and makes an excellent argument against the horrors of the War on Drugs. I feel that it is quite unfair to compare this documentary to the old war on drugs documentaries, but I feel that the film should be judged on its own merits. I don't know what the source of the original documentary is, but it is certainly better than this film. This film is not for the faint of heart. There is a lot of intense and graphic footage, but it is the subject matter that makes the film so powerful. The documentary is not a "documentary" in the sense that it is factual. It is a great piece of work that deserves more recognition. I hope that this film gets a wider distribution, as it is very important to the history of the War on Drugs. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the subject matter.

This is the story of one of the great men of the 20th century, James M. Moynihan. This is a remarkable, fascinating and fascinating documentary. The story is of a man who was a revolutionary in the social movements of the early 20th century. He was a progressive, a man who believed that the world would be a better place with the help of the people. He also believed that in order for the people to make change, they needed to come together and do something to make it happen. He believed that he was an idealist, a thinker, but a thinker who believed that the world could be made better by people, not by government. The film follows him as he travels across America, trying to convince people that the world needed change. The story goes from Philadelphia to New York City, to San Francisco, to Washington, DC. It shows the progress of a man who was a great leader in the movement for social change. It shows him as a man who believed that he could make a difference, and change the world. It shows his relationship with his wife, his work, his career, his friends, and his children. The film is a wonderful story of a man who changed the world, and the people he was working with. I highly recommend this film, and think that anyone who likes documentaries should watch it.

I was not at all prepared for the amount of drama this film contained. I was surprised that this movie was not rated R, as I would have been horrified at the level of emotional suffering displayed in the film. Yet, I was prepared for the dramatic elements and I was surprised at how graphic and powerful this movie was. I can only imagine how difficult it must have been for the victims to endure the extreme emotional torment they were subjected to. I was shocked to see that there were no adults present to encourage the victims to make any sense of what was going on. If this film had been rated R, I think I would have had to have been in the same room with the victims, but that would have been a terrible experience. The cinematography was excellent, and the acting was excellent. I was deeply moved by this movie, and I have now watched it three times. It was an important movie, and it should have been rated R, because I believe that it was an excellent movie, and I can understand why it was not rated R. If you are willing to see a film that is so disturbing, that you feel uncomfortable during the entire film, you will be able to understand why it was not rated R. The film, as it is, is very well done and it is very emotional. I recommend this movie to anyone who is willing to accept the extreme level of emotional trauma that the victims were subjected to.

Filled with great footage of the Chicago Film Festival, including a clip from "Birdman," the documentary is a great starting point for people to see a wide range of great films from around the globe. While I can't say that I'd have ever heard of him, he was one of the first black filmmakers to make a film, and he has a great deal to offer. The documentary is one of the most entertaining documentaries I've seen in a long time. It's extremely well produced and well edited, and there are lots of great anecdotes from the many people interviewed in the film. There's also plenty of great footage of the Chicago Film Festival, including the opening and closing ceremonies. The interviews with many of the film's major players are very insightful and very entertaining. This is a very entertaining documentary, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good introduction to the great works of American cinema.

I can't remember the last time I saw a documentary that had as much depth as this. There were moments where I wanted to just switch off the TV and put the documentary to sleep. But I didn't. Instead, I sat through it. I was impressed with the fact that this was shot with a small crew and an amazing amount of care. The subject matter was not necessarily the most sensational or important, but the doc was so well done that I was able to suspend my disbelief and go along for the ride. I was amazed that the documentary could focus on the relationship between a father and son. How does one bond with a child, and how do they react when they become older? I also felt a lot of sympathy for the family because the father (who has been in and out of prison over the years) was clearly having a hard time with his son, and I felt sorry for him. This is a very hard subject to cover, but I think this doc really got at the heart of the issues and gave the viewer a great view of what it's like to grow up with a parent who is mentally ill and/or abusive. It was very compelling and it really made me think. Overall, it was a great documentary. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about mental illness and parenting. 7/10

I've seen a lot of movies over the years, but I've never seen this film. Maybe it's because I'm more of an Edward R. Murrow fan. But the film is still interesting. It's about the changing nature of broadcast news. The interviews with various reporters is what you would expect, but there are also many interviews with activists, doctors, and other people who are concerned about the news. I think it's an interesting look into the way news is made and distributed. And it's worth seeing if you are a fan of the news.

David Moynihan (1992) is a documentary film about the life and times of legendary actress and writer Marilyn Monroe. The film covers her rise to stardom, her relationships with men, her death and how her relationship with her ex-husband, J.F.Kennedy, affected her. The film also covers her relationship with her brother, Robert Monroe (Kennedy), her relationship with her mother, Alice Monroe (Leo), her relationship with her sister, Caroline, (Carmen), her relationship with her psychiatrist, Dr. Benjamin Buck (Laurence), and her relationship with her husband, J.F.Kennedy. The film is a bit long, and could have used some more scenes. The film does, however, make a point of showing the cultural impact of her career, which was often overshadowed by her more important and more significant personal life. The film also does a good job of showing how she developed into a great screen actress. It is interesting to note that the film is not about her career, but about her personal life. I felt that the documentary could have used a few more scenes to flesh out the life of Marilyn Monroe, but it was still a good film. The documentary is worth seeing.

I really enjoyed the documentary about the legendary scientist. The film was just a bit too long and I didn't really enjoy the Q&A segments. I think the entire documentary should have been two hours and I don't think it was. It was just a bit too long. I would have liked to see more from the scientists in the interview. It was really interesting to see how they developed their theories about the universe and the universe itself. But I still think it would have been better to see more of the scientist's opinions about the findings of the Big Bang theory and the history of science. This is a documentary that is definitely worth seeing. It was a great documentary and I would definitely recommend it to others.

A documentary film by filmmaker Frank Marshall, on the work of legendary actor Marlon Brando. It's the story of how Brando's career was impacted by the Vietnam War. The movie, in which Brando gives a number of interviews, gives a rather unusual insight into the life of this great actor. It's mostly about his relationship with his father, who was a Vietnam vet, and how Brando, in the 1970s, came to resent him for this. It also tells the story of how Brando became a symbol of anti-war activism. Brando's relationships with other stars were also examined. This documentary has a number of interesting facts and figures, such as the number of times Brando has been offered a role, and the number of times he has declined. This documentary is very much worth seeing. It's a bit slow moving at times, but it does have a great message, and is an excellent portrait of a great actor. Recommended.

I've been watching this film for years. I've seen it at least three times. I can't get enough of it. I've never seen it as part of a series. I don't know why I like it so much. I think the main thing is the narrative. It's really simple and straight forward. There's no complex dialogue. It's not a long, thought-provoking film. It's just a simple story. It's also, to me, very uplifting. I have a feeling that if I were a kid I'd really like this film. I don't know why I don't like it. I'm just really enamored by it. I've watched it a lot. It's just one of those films that I watch a lot. It's not really an important film, but it's just a good film. It's not the most important film. It's just a good film.

Cinematic documentaries are a dime a dozen, but this one is the best of the bunch. It has a certain mystique about it, the way it relates to the subject matter. It's a bit different than the usual documentaries, and it's a bit different than the usual Moynihan films. The film is not a love story. The love story is not even discussed. There are no exchanges of words, and it doesn't seem to be the focus of the film. The focus is on the documentary. The film is fascinating, it's an interesting story, it's worth watching, and the film makers do a good job of documenting the story. It's an interesting story about a man who's lived through a lot, and he has given up a lot to give his story to the world. His life has been torn apart by his father, and by his mother's death. And he hasn't made the best of it. The film does a good job of showing the problems he has faced and the sacrifices he has made. His story is interesting, and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see a story about a man who's lived through a lot, and who has given up a lot to tell his story.

I liked this film because it was about one of the most important events of our time, the creation of the Federal Reserve, the mechanism that the government uses to lend money to the public. It was a very well done documentary, and the documentary maker was very well-versed in the subject matter. However, it was a bit long, and the film could have been shorter, but the film was well-done.

After reading the book I had a great time watching this documentary. It was so fun to watch the movie and then see the documentary. It was a really great time. The documentary was really fun to watch and the stories they told were so entertaining. This documentary is so fun to watch and shows you the true story of how a real life hero went from being a kid to a superhero. There are some really funny parts in this documentary. Overall this documentary is really entertaining and a really great time.

I don't know why the big budget Hollywood film-making companies would do a documentary on their favorite filmmaker, David Lean. Not only did he make a documentary about himself, he also made a documentary about his favourite filmmaker, Kurosawa. But that's just the beginning of the story. For starters, David is obsessed with Kurosawa. He's convinced that Kurosawa was the greatest director of all time. He uses his voice and his voiceover to tell you about his favorite films. He's a bit of a hippie and a little bit of a feminist. He doesn't think that films should be made for the entertainment of the audience. His favorite films are all about "invisible men". And the only films that he didn't like were "about the invisible men". It's a great story about his life and his thoughts on cinema. And about the filmmaker who inspired him. And about his relationship with the director. And about the woman he loves. And about a great film, "Ichi The Killer". It's a really great film. You should watch it. And you should watch it. It's a great film.

I saw this movie on HBO, and it was interesting. It was a good overview of how the movie industry works, and it was informative. It was a very informative overview, however, I felt it was too long. It was like two hours, and the movie just seemed to go on and on. It was not the greatest movie ever, but it was a good movie to see. I would recommend this movie, but I would only recommend it to those who have seen the movie, and know what to expect. 7/10

I watched this on HBO, and as soon as I heard that it was from Steven Spielberg, I knew I would like it. But I have to say that I am very impressed. I really liked it. I like a lot of documentaries, especially about history and science. I am especially impressed by the way he got the information from historical records. It is very interesting to see how the knowledge has changed over the years. I was not expecting that much, but I thought the movie was very good. I also liked the way it was presented. I liked that it was very structured, not that it was random, but it was very well put together. I liked that it did not make me feel like I was watching a documentary, but more like a history lesson. It is a really interesting movie, I would recommend it to anyone who likes documentaries.

I am a big fan of Richard Dreyfuss and he was very good in this film. He was very convincing as a very good father and husband. His daughter was very good as well. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about the meaning of love. I am also a big fan of Tom Hanks and he was very good in this film. I was surprised at how many people loved it. It was a very good film. The special effects were very good. The story was interesting. The people who were in the film were great. This was a very good film.

I didn't expect much from this documentary. I like John Travolta and am familiar with his work, but I've never really had the time to get into the person behind the persona. So I just watched this documentary and it turned out to be one of the most interesting things I've ever watched. John Travolta's extraordinary career is the subject of this documentary, which begins with his days in high school. It follows his rise from a low-level acting job to starring roles in movies like "Pulp Fiction", "Raging Bull" and "The Last Seduction". He also talks about his family, his sexual awakening, his faith and his past. It's an interesting look at a guy who came from nothing to having a great career. I also liked the interviews with his younger brother, who also is a successful actor. Overall, I liked the documentary and I recommend it to anyone who likes John Travolta.

There's something missing in this documentary, but it's not a complaint. It's a complaint about the content. And I have to admit, I thought that the film was somewhat entertaining, especially when I had been listening to the audiobook. But there's nothing in the film that I found very interesting. It's all rather dull. It's a very thin story, and it's all about the people who had made the film. So there's not much to do here. The film is definitely not the best documentary I've ever seen. But I do recommend it for people who are into that sort of thing.

What happens when you combine a film maker with a documentary film maker, and the result is a hybrid of the two? In this case, Martin Scorsese and Robert Redford, the filmmakers behind "The Wolf of Wall Street" (2013), collaborated to make a documentary film about the life and times of famed investment guru Bernie Madoff. The film is entitled "The Insider" and stars David Duchovny and Jonah Hill. The film takes place in the early 1990s and focuses on the life and times of Madoff, a man who has an amazing story to tell, but no one is willing to listen. We see how Madoff's financial affairs are managed, how he develops a relationship with his wife, and how he tries to be a good husband to his family. As the film progresses, we learn a little bit more about Madoff's life and his motivations. Madoff was an intelligent man, but he lacked some qualities to make him successful. While he was successful in business, he was also responsible for the deaths of a lot of people, and for this reason, Madoff is a pariah. However, we learn that Madoff's life is far from a one-dimensional character. He was intelligent, but he also had some kind of moral problems. He was a philanthropist, and he wanted to help people, but he also was a ruthless manipulator. This film is a bit different than the other Scorsese films in that the director's style is different. It is extremely fast-paced, and the focus is on what is happening at the moment, rather than the sequence of events. It is the type of style that Scorsese is known for, and it is used very effectively in this film. The film is also very entertaining, as we see how Madoff's life is portrayed through interviews with people who knew him, people who worked for him, and even people who were his close friends. We see a very different style of film-making, and I think that this is what makes this film work. The movie is very entertaining, and it is quite interesting to see how this man, who was once an investment genius, became a sociopath. In the end, we learn that Madoff was a liar, and he was responsible for the deaths of a lot of people, but we don't see that in this film. I think that this film was very successful because of how it was presented, but it wasn't as successful because it didn't really tell us much about Madoff's life. The film was successful because it was entertaining, but it wasn't successful because it didn't tell us anything about Madoff's life.

This film was a nice introduction to the film of the same name, and to the life of the legendary Robert Moses. I found it a great idea to see Moses as an old man, but also a very interesting way to view the man and the actions he took, and the way he viewed people. There were some aspects of the man that I found hard to accept, but others were a bit more understandable. I do not understand how Moses could have possibly given up so many people, and even more how he could have personally decided not to do anything to help them. There were several parts that I found hard to believe, but at the same time, I was glad to see that Moses did not look at the people that he had to help as a burden, but as a blessing. I felt that he had a very strong heart, and I felt that he had a way of seeing the world that was different than the people that he knew. He was the sort of man that you would never want to meet, but would want to meet if you had the chance. I felt that this film gave a very accurate portrayal of the man, and the actions he took. The documentary was well done, and I felt that I had a lot to learn from it. I do not know if this is really true, but I think that Moses was a good man. I think that he had a heart that was pure, and a sense of decency that was very rare in the people that he knew. I think that the people that Moses cared about, had the same heart, and the same sense of decency.

This is a very well done documentary that tries to give some insight into the life of the late great comedian. The interviewees are mostly a great deal of his peers and friends. They tell their stories and we get to know a bit about the man behind the persona. The documentary was mostly shot on location in New York and I thought it was a great idea to have the interviews shot in that city. The editing was also great. It wasn't too long or too short and it kept me interested and curious. I think the documentary was really well done and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a documentary that gives a lot of insight into the life of a great comedian.

I was a fan of the films of Robert Redford and Martin Scorsese. This documentary is a wonderful snapshot of how the films of both men affected their lives. It tells the story of their friendship, the influence of the films on their lives, and the contributions of the actors who were in them. It is a fascinating look at how two men came to be where they are today. If you're a fan of either of these men, you will love this documentary.

I have never been a great fan of the director's work. After seeing this movie, I am much more interested in his films. I do not understand why he has a bad reputation. He is a great director. The only reason I gave it an 8 was because of the casting of the characters. As an Asian, I have never seen the characters portrayed as Asian. I think that this was an excellent movie and definitely worth watching. It's not for everyone, but it is a good movie to see if you want to see something different.

Director and writer Peter Bogdanovich has put together an excellent documentary on the life and times of Francis Ford Coppola. It is a well crafted film that follows Coppola throughout his rise to stardom, his tumultuous marriage, and his fall into obscurity. It is a fascinating look at a man who has been a part of American cinema for over 40 years, and his unique style, which has brought him fame and fortune. The documentary begins with a fascinating and entertaining interview with Coppola himself. He is a fascinating man, and I found his answers to be very interesting. He is a man who has lived his life to the fullest, and has no regrets. I also enjoyed the way that he spoke of his work, and how he wanted his films to be as good as possible. The film follows Coppola through the stages of his career, and shows us his early successes, his failures, and his rise and fall. The film also gives us a great look at his life, and how he has dealt with his problems, and how he has dealt with his family. The film is well done, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the life of Francis Ford Coppola. 8/10

In some ways, the movie is similar to a documentary, in that it uses interviews with a wide variety of people and events to tell the story of the Holocaust. In this case, however, it is a documentary about the "secret" of the Holocaust, rather than a documentary about the Holocaust itself. That secret is how Jews were able to survive, because they were able to learn to do things such as make fire from burning trash and to write books of poetry. The movie shows that people who are at the bottom of the heap in life have the ability to learn from those who are above them. The same goes for the Holocaust. Many people do not know about the Holocaust because they were not exposed to it until it was too late. This is why the movie is important. It shows that it is possible for people to survive a very horrible experience, but that they can only learn from those who survived it. It is important to remember that the Holocaust was a tragedy that affected the Jewish people and not the other way around.

This is a documentary about the life and times of one of the most important people in the world, the famous actor, James Cagney. I was very impressed with the way the director and the producer were able to get Cagney's life and times, as well as his relationships and life, into a short documentary that is accessible to a wide audience. I'm not sure that there are many films that could get Cagney's life and times into a documentary, so this was a very impressive achievement. The documentary does a good job of showing Cagney's life as well as his relationship with his family, friends, and colleagues. He is a wonderful person, and I think that the film is a very honest look at his life. It's nice to see that the documentary makers did not gloss over his faults, and that they did not gloss over his accomplishments. I also think that the film was very interesting to watch, and that it was very entertaining. It's a good film to watch. It's a little dated, but still a good film.

If you're a science fiction fan, you will love this movie. It's entertaining, and it's informative. The most interesting thing about this movie is how they go about describing how science fiction is being used as a weapon in the Cold War. There are some really interesting points made in this movie, and the dialogue is very well done. Some people may find the movie boring, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's a good way to waste 90 minutes. The acting is very good, and the camerawork is very good. Overall, I would recommend this movie.

I had no idea what to expect, but I ended up really liking this documentary. The director is very talented and the documentary itself is very entertaining and well made. You learn about the art of film-making and the artistic process. But I think that the most interesting part of the film is the process itself. It's very interesting how the director worked with the cast and crew and how he made the film. You can see the tension and the pain the cast felt as they worked together. You can see the stages of the film being made and how they worked together. You can see the different stages of the film being made and how they worked together. The best part is the way the director is able to tell a story from the inside-out. I think that the best part of the film is the interaction between the cast and the director. You can see the pain and the passion that each of them have for making this film and the effort that they put into it. I think that this documentary will be a very important documentary for people to see. The people who are not into art or film or whatever, but want to learn about the process of film-making will really enjoy this documentary. I think that you'll be surprised at how much you learn about film-making and the process of making a film. It's very interesting and entertaining. I think that this documentary is worth watching.

I just want to say that I saw this film because it was on TV and I was so looking forward to it. I was very disappointed. I thought the film was very boring and I could not see anything interesting about it. The characters were not very interesting and were not very likable. The film was very long and boring. I think the film should have been shorter. I would give it a 1 out of 10. The director should have spent more time on the characters. The film should have been shorter.
