Many of the comments that have been posted here have been highly critical of the subject matter. I thought this movie would be great to watch as a bunch of people who had been involved in the subject. The good thing about this film is that it takes the viewer on a tour of many different times in the life of Fred Astaire. We get to see what he was like as a child, how he went on to become a star, and his relationship with the actress that played Nell. The interesting thing about this movie is that the stories we see are not related in a linear fashion, but in a rather kaleidoscopic way. We see him traveling to different cities as a child, being the star of the Broadway show, traveling to Europe as an adult, having a short romance with Julie Andrews, and then all of a sudden he's a married man in a time warp, and we see how his career changed with the arrival of Broadway. Many of the stories were told in a very compressed way, and some of them are rather funny. My only complaint is that some of the footage was edited in a way that it was hard to follow the narrative. This is a minor complaint, though, because it was a well done documentary. I recommend this film to anyone who has had a role in the industry or who wants to know more about the film industry. I was always interested in how all of the different actors came together to make a movie, and I was glad to see that this film gave me an overview of how it was done.

Although I'd never heard of the legendary Chilean director "Antonio Lopez" until seeing the work of this documentary on Netflix, I thought this was a very interesting look at his career. The interviewees are all from different countries but they all come from his most prolific and successful period: in the early 1960s and early 1970s, he was at the top of his game, helming a slew of successful, high-profile films in Spain, the US, and Australia. The film is essentially an anthology of interviews, from directors and writers, film critics, and other important players in the history of cinema, with one conversation about how some of the most famous film makers today (Michael Bay, Martin Scorsese) are just as influential in their own countries as Lopez was in Chile. It's also interesting to see the perspectives of those who loved and disliked Lopez, his relationships with his family and his friends. The film is divided into segments, and there are a lot of interviews, so you won't be able to see everything. But the segments are entertaining and interesting, and I think it's an interesting look at his early career.

This documentary is the story of two young women, an 18 year old and a 30 year old. They are taking part in an oral history project on their youth and have formed a band called Cassanova which they perform live on stage. One of the girls has been told by her mother that she has died, the other has told the same to her sister. Both girls share how they became involved with the life of the band, how they feel about their elders and how their music influences the lives of the older generation. One thing that struck me most is the emotional abuse the women are subjected to by their parents. The other thing that struck me is how much of the footage was spent with the older women, their sister and their mother, as opposed to the younger women, who all seem to have a much more positive view of their elders and how they feel about them. I am impressed that a documentary of this nature was able to raise this question and produce such an interesting outcome. Also interesting to note is how the women's music influences the older generation's views of their elders, as opposed to their own opinions. For the most part the women in this film were excellent. They did a fantastic job of documenting their youth, their music, their experiences, their feelings, their dreams and how they felt about them. I also appreciated the strong message of the film that it was impossible for any young person to lead a life like the two women did. I am always impressed that documentaries such as this can get such a positive outcome, especially when the subject is as emotional as this film is. It's not all happy. I think this film is a great documentary and I highly recommend it. It really gets the point across.

The blackness of the BBC archive collection is immediately apparent. This is a documentary about Italian sex and fashion photographers, but in the 1970s, at the height of the Italian-American war, this was something very different. There was nothing glamorous about this topic, and the subject was of no interest to anyone. The sexual revolution of the 60s, with its emphasis on sex, nudity, and sexual experimentation, was only beginning. "Sex Fashion & Disco" tells the story of two photographers (Giulio Coracci and Anna Appia), whose careers were basically destroyed by their shared interest in eroticism. Coracci's focus was on the nude models he photographed for fashion magazines, while Appia photographed both men and women. The interest is very personal, as both men (both men, in fact) were in relationships with their wives, and Appia's interest is more personal, as she was a personal friend of Coracci. Their interest in both physical and visual images of sex is somewhat hypocritical. The very time when they became famous was a time when pornographers were using pornographic photographs to attract the attention of an audience. While they were also doing this to appeal to an audience of fashion photographers, they could not have known that their technique would be used by pornographers. In any case, this is an interesting story, though I feel that Coracci and Appia, who are both very good photographers, were somewhat overshadowed by the amazing photography of Alberto Giacometti. Overall, I was not impressed by this documentary, but it is an interesting story and the acting is very good.

I remember that film coming out in 1987, the day that I was twelve years old, and when I saw it I thought that it was really cool and I was excited to see that it was being made and so I rented it and watched it. I had never heard about it but I had heard that it was really cool so I decided to buy it. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had heard that it was really good, so I figured that I would give it a try. What I saw was really cool, the interviews were really funny and it was really touching. So I decided to buy it and I watched it and I was really shocked and I was like, oh my god, it was really good! And that's what I'm trying to say that I really really really liked it and I really really liked it because it really really showed me that life really doesn't matter, you just need to have fun and you need to have fun and you need to be happy and you need to just have fun and that's what it really showed me. I think that if people see it and it really really really did help them to see that life really doesn't matter and it really doesn't matter how old you are, you don't need to be really old to be happy. I think that was really good and I really really really liked it. It was really really good.

This documentary on sex and fashion is a bit outdated. It focuses more on the art of sex than the industry of sex. There are a lot of stories of fashion but most are pretty sad. The film is also a little too long. It feels like it runs for two hours and 15 minutes. I really don't want to criticize this documentary because it is a good one, but it does drag a little bit.

What's the matter with the Academy? The movie of his is "Rocky," the sequel to "Rocky Balboa" which was made three years after "Rocky V." The story is about the funeral of Rocky's beloved wife. There's a terrific performance by Sylvester Stallone. But not a great one. It's too dark, too much about losing your spouse, and too much about drugs. What's good about the film is the cinematography. I love the shots of New York City, but the other shots are way too dark. The soundtrack is also great. But all in all, it's too much about sex and too much about drugs. "Sex and the City" is the best show on TV.

I must admit that this is not the movie that I expected, and yet, I still enjoyed it. It has a lot of depth and a lot of detail about the fashion industry. It shows the people and the work that goes into making clothes. It also has some great interviews with the designers and other people in the industry. It also gives some insight to the fashion industry itself, such as why it has become what it is and what it means to the people that work in it. This is a very interesting documentary, and I think it is a great follow-up to Fashion Police. Another excellent documentary about fashion is What The F*ck, and it is also a good follow-up to Fashion Police.

Hair styles were an important aspect of the disco movement. In this documentary director Walter Brown spends the better part of two hours documenting the styles of these famous disco artists, who were mainly black, but included Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, African Americans, and people of all nationalities. It's a fascinating look at the era and the artistry of these artists. The interviews with music executives and stylists, photographers, musicians, and singers are illuminating. Brown uses clips from several movies, as well as rare music videos, to bring the style of the era to life. Overall, I found this a fascinating look at a very important part of the pop culture history. It's well worth seeing.

I was fortunate to see this documentary in a screening at the Seattle Film Festival. While the story is true, the reporting is not and the narrator's comments are not always the most accurate, but it was a powerful and powerful documentary. It's hard to summarize in one short paragraph but the point is that the fashion industry was always changing. The changes were visible and were not easily seen. It was an important point to show. We were all trying to be what the people wanted to be. This was not necessarily a negative thing. The clothes we wear are an expression of who we are and who we want to be. So yes, it was true that the fashion industry was changing. However, it is not something to be proud of. This is a discussion about what's wrong with the fashion industry and how we can change it.

Fantastic documentary about this style of music. The style is intriguing and complex, the musicians are varied and talented, the subject matter is interesting, but the execution is what makes this a great film. Director Tom Huizenga has done a great job of recreating the sound and the feeling of the 60s. But he could have been more accurate with the music and his narration. He doesn't even mention "Disco Revolution" by Elton John, which was the first song he saw. The producer was one of the best in the business and he was able to capture the energy and the passion of the musicians. But, the editing and the narration are terrible. The music and the pictures are amazing. The film is worth seeing, but it could have been better.

I really enjoyed this documentary about one of the pioneers of contemporary New York dance music, Tony Cox. I had never heard of him until this film came out. It was amazing to see the documentary on the BBC. It was very inspiring and I feel it is a great film to learn about the history of this music. He was a pioneer in music and his music influenced people all over the world. I think he is one of the most important people in music history. I loved the documentary. I also really enjoyed hearing clips from his concerts. There was a lot of video footage of him playing on stage and in clubs and I loved the way that they showed clips from those concerts. It really showed the passion that he had for music. It was interesting to see clips of his famous disco songs from the early 1970's. I also liked that he had some really funny and touching stories about his experiences with drugs and sex. I also really liked the way that the film was shot and how the footage was shown. I think it was really great how the footage was presented and the way that the clips were shown. It was really entertaining and interesting. The acting was also really good. I really enjoyed seeing the stories of the dancers who had appeared in the videos. It was really inspiring to see the dancers who had appeared in the videos. I also thought the music was really great and that it really showed what a great influence Tony Cox had on New York music. I really thought that this documentary was really good. I highly recommend this film.

The Duke of Westminster would be proud of this portrait of London in the 1950s. Despite the late 1970s fashion, this movie shows the back-to-back swinging 60s to 60s to the swinging 70s. The movie is not as boring as it might have been, but it does not do anything new. It's just another story about a Duke of Westminster and his visit to London. The movie was a hit in the UK, but it was more of a "Kazoo" type film. It was shown on many TV channels in the UK. It was just a regular movie. This movie does not show us that the Duke of Westminster was a friend of Fanny Lou Bloom, although he might have known Bloom when Bloom was a beautiful woman. Bloom was a very popular woman in the 60s. The movie does not show that the Duke was friend of Joan Crawford, although he might have known her at the time. The movie is very entertaining, and it is not boring. It shows us that the Duke of Westminster was a very popular man. I enjoyed this movie.

I was extremely surprised to learn that this documentary was only on DVD for a month before it was withdrawn from distribution. What a shame, because it was so good and so important. I thought that it was going to be just another black and white documentary about disco and how it affects the lives of women and children, but it turned out to be much more. It was refreshing to hear from both women and men who had lived in the same areas as the women and saw what happened. One of the women was told she was about to get pregnant when she was just nine, but she was able to have the baby on the day she had been told, because her friend was able to take the child home from a hospital. There was also talk of how young girls had sex for the first time with the same old guy. The mother of one of the girls was able to use her own money to go to the abortion clinic. This woman was able to go to the clinic because she had a doctor who could see that she was getting pregnant and only had to pay a small fee. The movie was also very touching. One of the women talked about the war in Vietnam. The women who were there saw what was going on and they were shocked by the things that were going on in the world. The best thing in the film is when the mother of the girl talks about the abuse she received from her husband. The father was not able to listen to what her daughter was saying because he was also talking on the phone. She could not tell him what was happening because the phone was not working. This woman was the mother of three kids and the most powerful woman in her family. It was very powerful to hear her talk about her experiences and the effects that her daughter had on her and the others around her. She said that the girl was still being abused by her husband and that she felt that her daughter was being neglected by her family. She said that she felt like a burden to her daughter and felt that she was the only person who could help her daughter. Her daughter was also able to have a new baby that was born after the war. I highly recommend this documentary and will always remember it.

Fashion icon Giorgio Armani is interviewed by German film maker and dance historian Lutz Bachmann about his art, his private life, his obsessive behaviors and his dreams. We learn about Armani's stardom, his best selling work, and his public persona. It's a fascinating look at the man, and the art that he created. I found the interview with the fashion designer and his young protege (who goes by the name "Lance"), quite interesting. This documentary is a bit boring and it's too slow to really make an impact on you. The editing is choppy and it's a bit slow. I recommend this documentary only for fans of Armani. The interviews are not really interesting. But the film does a good job at capturing the personality and aura of the man.

The cinematic legacy of Salvador Dali is a source of fascination for all of us. Some of us find the movie that chronicles the life of this gifted artist to be somewhat boring, but others find it to be the most important film of our time. Dali's work is some of the most magical ever produced, and, in a sense, we are stuck with the mystery that surrounds this man. What we see on screen is what we believe Dali must have seen on screen. There is an undeniable perfection to his art, which we are stuck with, waiting to see on film. It's a documentary, though, which is of its time and place. Dali's extraordinary work is celebrated in a way that is both beautiful and painful. For the most part, the documentary remains static, with a good deal of editing, and with a lot of stuff getting cut out. Some of the most stunning pieces of Dali's work, like his cat-eye glass or his use of film as a medium, are inexplicably left out. This is because it is not just a documentary, it's a look into the life of a legend. So much of Dali's work was controversial, and a lot of it left a lot of us cold. Most of us are better off not knowing the truth about him. It is only the memory of his genius that holds such power for some people. This documentary attempts to look at some of the most controversial aspects of Dali's life, but it doesn't cover everything, which makes it seem less complete. We don't learn the reason for Dali's fame, the real reason why his work is so special, the reasons behind his obsessions with Nazism and the occult, and the reasons behind his suicide. The documentary seems incomplete, because we don't see everything. It is only partially told, and the rest of the film is left unfinished. This is the only flaw that I found in the film. In the documentary, we learn that the reason for Dali's popularity was largely due to his charm. As a man of a certain age, I can definitely identify with this. There are certain people I have known who are very gifted and can talk to anyone they want, and I believe that in some ways, Dali was the same way. When he spoke, it was with a smile on his face, and his gestures were usually just great. I love his music, and I love his works, but I still can't understand why he is so loved. What was it about him that drew so many people to him? The answer to this is the problem. Dali was also a very mysterious person, and the more we know about him, the less we know about his personality. The film does a good job in building up his legacy, but there are many things that don't get explained. Most of the time, it's because they don't want to explain them. We learn about the religious beliefs of his family, about his father, but nothing else about Dali. In the film, we do learn a little about his experiences with religion, but he was not a religious man. He was a liberal, and if you didn't like his style, well, he

This is a great film to show students. it focuses on fashion and Disco. Not a very good movie but definitely worth a watch. Its an interesting look at the history of Fashion. A few very brief clips are shown from both sides of the cultural and economic divide. The history of Fashion was very interesting. It was an interesting look at what we consider to be fashion in the United States. This movie should be mandatory viewing for students in history and art classes. A great movie.

The documentary on Anthony Lopez's movie, "The Good Earth" explores the genesis of the movie's visual motifs. The viewer is informed of the origins of many of the shots and influences that would culminate in the final result. From its inception, the film is a visual representation of an idealized universe. The film is divided into three segments. The first part (the "masterpiece") explores the origins of the subject matter. The second segment (the "opening sequence") highlights the production process of the film. The final segment (the "final reel") features the finished product. While this segment is far from being a cinematic masterpiece, it does provide a great deal of insight into the workings of the production process. While the film is relatively technical in nature, it is nothing more than a visual guide to the film. One should not be expecting much in terms of acting or character development. The film, on the other hand, is a look into a creative mind that deserves recognition. Without question, the cinematography is the best part of the film.

The male-dominated film industry has a long history of withholding the performances of those who make up the majority of its workforce. The history of male-dominated film industry is littered with filmmakers who could not match the talent of their female counterparts. From the 1960s to the 1980s, the majority of male directors were predominantly non-professional writers and non-professional film critics. As such, they could not fill the niche of an aspiring female director or film critic. Over time, more and more women have become directors and film critics, but in a male-dominated industry, it is unlikely that they will succeed. The advent of more female directors and film critics is due to the influence of women in the mainstream media and social media. This film attempts to cover the story of Anita Campbell and her first and last female directorial debut. Anita Campbell grew up in a household where women were expected to act in traditionally feminine roles. It was only in the early 1980s that Anita Campbell decided to break the gender barrier in film, first by working with renowned director Peter Bogdanovich (Gone with the Wind) and then by co-directing with Gary Winick (The Color Purple). Campbell's career trajectory from independent director to female film critic is a fascinating and informative look into the women who have made it into the film industry and why they made the decision to break the gender barrier in the industry. Anita Campbell is a very interesting woman. She had a very high sex drive and was not afraid to make her husband (played by Jack Nicholson) jealous by taking off her clothes and performing in her underwear. She also learned the art of the 'freetime' and is remembered as a kind and loving woman who was very difficult to work with. She always wanted to have sex with the crew and wanted to take the responsibility of directing. She had a very intelligent and honest personality and had a tremendous passion for cinema. But she also knew that there were other women who were capable of being great directors. However, it was her husband that kept her from making her dreams a reality. She was always jealous and resentful of her husband's obsession with the movies and his insistence on working more and more hours. Anita Campbell was never shy to criticize her husband and make fun of him for being so obsessed with the movies. Anita Campbell became the first female director in the 1970s, and this film documents her rise to stardom. The film explores the ways in which the film industry has changed and the attitudes of those who work in the film industry. We learn about the women who were willing to be alone with their passions and then faced rejection from their families and the film industry. We also learn about the actresses who used sex to their advantage and did not have to work to gain any sort of success in the film industry. It also explores the attitudes of those who worked in the film industry as well as the creative process and how the film industry changed over time. The film is not perfect and it is a bit episodic, but the film is very informative and fascinating. The film is definitely worth seeing.

The documentary "Sex Fashion & Disco" is a slow paced, dry documentary about fashion and the people who have made it. It is very important to mention the style that has made many people famous. The style is the backdrop for the doc. They touch on fashion and style in an honest and unbiased way. I thought the documentary was very good. I highly recommend watching this documentary. If you're interested in fashion, or are a fashion lover, you should watch this. I thought the fashion was realistic and interesting. I found it interesting to watch how fashion trends changed over time. It made the style much more interesting. The style has definitely changed over time. Fashion has changed over time, but it has also evolved. I think this documentary is good for any fan of fashion, or a fashion lover. The fashion shown in this documentary is the trend in fashion over time.

It's very strange how the camera captures this subject, this time, because no real situation is covered, and what's happening is shown, and shown in this way. It's like we are witnessing an actual, happening. You will feel the pain of each person and the pain of the people who used to support them. If you are curious, and have a strong sense of aesthetics, you should see it. I was very impressed with how talented the director is. I can't believe he actually took the camera, when he is doing so much good. The only other thing I can think of is that some of the clips are taken from the movie "Manualer", which also covers this subject, but without the director being the one who made the movie. In that case, the people who make the movie would not have the resources to go to the big screen. Anyway, I would recommend to watch this movie. I can't recommend it more than 7 stars, because it's not a documentary, but it's not boring either.

I am not a fan of either of the directors, but I thought that this documentary was well made and well presented. The interviewees were real, and they were not all talking about sex. They were talking about a life and a culture, both in Mexico and in the United States. I was struck by the observation that people who worked in the porn industry had no desire to "sell out" for money. They were honest and genuine about what they did, and they were not looking for the money. I loved that the subjects themselves gave insight into their lives. They described the emotional and physical toll they took on their bodies, and I think it is a testament to how much these people loved what they were doing. I think the emphasis of the film should have been more on the political and cultural issues raised, as this is a documentary, not a lecture. The subject matter was important, and there was no point to presenting a documentary on this subject matter. However, I think that if a viewer is already knowledgeable about the subject matter, the documentary should not be a waste of time. The film itself was good, and I would recommend it.

I first saw the "Sex Fashion & Disco" documentary last year and it was really good. I think it's about time that they put out a video. I know a lot of people don't like the documentary because it's the same as other documentaries but I think that it's an amazing and honest look into the world of fashion. Sure the nudity and the language in the beginning is a little creepy but then it gets better. The interviews are all good and I loved the part with actress Steve Irwin and his '60s TV show "Dirty Work". The fact that his wife was a model and he wanted to be one was really fascinating and I liked that. The documentary is interesting and shows you what goes on behind the scenes in the fashion industry. It's a good documentary that you should check out.

This is a documentary which is actually quite well done, with most of the stories being about the fashion industry. But at the end of the day, it's not about fashion. It's about the social issues surrounding fashion. It focuses on the fashion industry as it is currently and how it is currently, and the effects that it has on the human being and society. It also looks at the recent scandals in the fashion industry. One of the things that you'll notice here is the style of the documentary. It's often quite black and white, with very few color scenes. It's mainly footage from a variety of interviews with people in the fashion industry, with the only real exception being a scene with the widow of the designer of a "Big Sexy" and the designer of a "Jasmine" dress. While the style of the documentary may not appeal to everyone, the overall message of it is to look at the clothing industry and its issues. What I love about this documentary is that it does not try to make the fashion industry look like some kind of "great evil empire", but instead tries to show the issues that the fashion industry has to deal with and how it affects the society. It also shows the way that the fashion industry deals with that. It also shows that the fashion industry has been a part of society for decades. I give this a 7 out of 10. It's a good documentary, but it's not a great documentary. It does have its flaws, like some of the interviews aren't very good. There is also a few instances where you just want to cut the footage. Overall, I would recommend this documentary to anyone interested in the fashion industry. It's not really about fashion, but it is about the issues surrounding the fashion industry.
