Respected photographer, artist and set designer, Cecil Beaton. was best known for his Academy Award-winning work, designing for such award-winning films such as Gigi (1958) and My Fair Lady (1964). The film features archive footage and interviews with various models, artists and filmmakers who worked closely with Beaton during his illustrious career. Beaton was not only a dazzling chronicler of his time, but a supreme arbiter of its tastes. From the Bright Young Things, to the front lines of World War II, and from the international belle monde and the pages of Vogue to a role as the Queen's official photographer, Beaton embodied the cultural and political schisms of the twentieth century. In this warm - though critical - portrait, which blends archival footage and photographs with voice over from Beaton's famed diaries to capture his legacy as a complex and unique creative force. Dynamic and lyrical, Love, Cecil (2017) is an examination of Beaton's singular sense of the visual, which dictated a style and set standards of creativity that continue to resonate and inspire today.

I loved this documentary and it was just the right amount of heart wrenching and funny. The stories of a man and his dogs and how he can't deal with it is so funny. He actually gets a lot of sympathy from his own family because he is such a great man. The story is even more moving when you realize that he is dying. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who has lost a pet or is thinking about losing a pet. This is a great film and I think everyone should see it.

An intriguing but depressing look at a lost artist, Cecil Sharp, with the all too familiar story of a film making career. Sharp is a musician who was on the brink of being a big time movie star in the 70s. When his musical group was disbanded, he embarked on a life of record collection and small theater productions. But his life was cut short by a heart attack and the film crew that were following him to his "last" show. Cecil Sharp's life was a constant battle with the negative emotions of depression, anger, and confusion. This film provides a good insight into the life of a musician. Sharp has a great voice, and the story is told in a way that makes it clear he had an ability to tell stories that are interesting, interesting, interesting, but not a story that would go down in history as "the greatest film". Cecil Sharp is not the greatest film ever made. Sharp is not even the greatest film made in the last 40 years. It is, however, a story worth telling.

In the final years of the Roman Empire, under the rule of emperor Nero, Nero's servant Cassius is publicly crucified, and the people of Rome are stunned and horrified. The pain and suffering of his friends and family is erased by his act. The next morning, the body is removed from the grounds of the Coliseum and given to Nero's slave Raeburn, and placed on a public display. In his turn, Cassius is given a public funeral and his friends are expected to pay their respects at the tomb of their former leader. However, a number of them turn up for the funeral, each with their own reasons for not attending. The question of who was really the real Cassius, and who was really the real Nero, is raised. We learn the story through Cassius's wife, Cleopatra, and a series of interviews with historians, and then some. The question is never really answered, but the audience is left with the impression that it was quite possible that Cassius was Nero. We see Nero's dislike for the Roman senate, the shame of his wife, the fear that he had caused for the people of Rome, and the violence that drove his armies to war. Cassius was a slave who loved his master, and as the movie progresses, we see Cassius going through the agonising torment of his last hours, but we never know why he did what he did, and there is no explanation for his actions. We see Nero make promises to the people of Rome, promising to protect them, but the power that Nero wielded over the senate was never questioned. Cassius was the person that could have saved Nero, but he never gave in to Nero's demands. Cassius's name is never mentioned in the end credits, and we do not see the last moments of his life, which would have made it more dramatic. The audience is left with a series of questions, but not answers. It is a film that shows us the emotions that we all feel, but it leaves us with no real answers. It is a powerful film, but it leaves many unanswered questions.

After watching the movie, I was at a loss for words. This movie has a very strong message that everyone should know. This movie reminds me of the events of 9/11. Everyone should be aware of this movie. It is a very powerful movie, which is a must see. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has ever been in a situation where they have had to "run from your fear" and that fear is something that will consume you. This movie is a must see. It shows you what you could be dealing with if you have to run from your fear and what it does to you. I highly recommend this movie. I think everyone should see this movie.

I was a fan of Caron's books and for me it was an experience of a lifetime. This documentary shows the daily struggles that are the greatest challenge to her as a person. I was worried that it would just be about her, but it really is more about her, her husband, and her children. She's all in this family, her husband is just the secretary, her kids are just her family and the people in her community. I was surprised at how tough this documentary is, I thought it would be a movie about the children, but there's a lot of stories, and it really is a family. It is very difficult to live this life, but she's doing everything she can to make sure that her kids live it. I have no doubt that she'll continue to do this, and I hope that she can continue to make a difference.

The film is very difficult to watch at times, because it's like a very small slice of the life of Cecil Dean "Cecil" Smith, a famed and notorious figure in history. He was an inventor who invented the first atomic bomb and was arrested on federal charges of treason for making the bomb. He died in prison, and for the rest of his life, he kept himself in hiding. I'm not going to go into any detail about the film, as there are many other sources on this. The film focuses on the way Smith felt about the government, especially when he was arrested and charged with treason, and then the way he dealt with the ensuing court proceedings. The film was filmed with the aid of footage that was confiscated from the FBI and the CIA. The material includes several tapes, and a letter written by Smith to the author of the film, Erich Von Daniken. This was a particularly important part of the film, because it shows Smith as an innocent man who simply made a mistake. While Smith was being interrogated by the FBI and the CIA, the government attorney appeared to be trying to justify the FBI's actions. Smith's response is priceless: "It's all on a world-wide scale." He also said that the evidence was very weak. In the film, there are several moments that were supposed to be dramatic and shocking, but were quite dull and slow. The editing in the film is very good. The film does suffer from some continuity problems, especially at the end, but the rest of the film is very good. As with any documentary, the film should be seen on its own merits, not as a part of a larger film. This is a film that should be watched, not for the details. It's a good, but not great film. I give the film an 8 out of 10.

I thought that this was a wonderful film that does not just tell a story, but tells a story in such a way that the audience is interested in the process of the film. The camera is not just a means to an end, it's also a means to tell the story of one man's journey to try to see his son. I loved how they did not show just a single shot of the father, but showed his journey through the relationship between his wife and son, and how the son's reaction to the father's feelings and thoughts is the subject of the film. This was a great film that I would recommend to anyone, especially those that are going through a divorce, or have a difficult relationship with a partner. It is important to show a relationship between parents and children in a different way, but in the end it is the child that is the most important part of the relationship, and the relationship between a father and a son should be the most important part of a relationship. This film is a must see, and I hope that more people watch it.

A delightful documentary that begins with interviews with the main players, but then focuses on the real people behind the scenes. The heart-warming nature of the film is not in what the filmmakers discover or interview, but rather how they are able to connect with the people who have been affected by the scandals. They are able to see what people have gone through, and the impact it has had on their lives, and what they can do to help. They do this by using various interviews with a wide range of people and their families, as well as individuals. Some of the interviews are done in an understated manner, while others are over the top. The footage is usually interesting and interesting, and the film certainly provides a range of insight into the people who were involved. While some of the interviewees are known, there are many others who have not been so well-known. I think the film gives a much more complete and thorough portrait of some of the people than I would have guessed from the trailer. One thing I have learned from watching this is that the original interviews of the original scandal in the early 1970's were edited by a man named Michael Stein, who was known for his documentary style, and who also did the original interviews. After the story broke, Michael Stein was asked to go back and interview as many people involved in the scandal as he could, and he used a new technique. He began by talking to a family member of one of the people who was involved, and then he began talking to the family of another person, and then to the person he knew. I would say that this method worked very well, because by focusing on people and the stories they were telling, he was able to get a much more complete picture of what was going on. One thing that the film does not do is focus on the scandal itself. This is a very interesting and important story, and there are a number of documentaries that have focused on it. I think that this film does a much better job at this than any of the others, because it does not focus on the scandal itself. I think this was very important, because it would have been extremely difficult to produce a documentary about this without focusing on the scandal. The film does this by focusing on the effect the scandal had on the people involved, and how they have dealt with it, and the impact it has had on their lives. I think that this approach does a very good job of giving the viewer a more complete picture of the scandal, as well as how the people involved have dealt with it. I would recommend this film to anyone, and I would recommend it to people who want to learn more about the scandal and the people who were involved. Overall, I would say that this film was very good. I would rate it a 7/10, but I would probably give it a higher rating if I had the chance to.

I'm a movie critic, and I've read the reviews here for this film. I must say, I disagree with the reviewers. While this movie is a real mess, and has a lot of issues, it is an interesting, and sometimes funny, look at the early 70's. I've never been to Los Angeles, but I could imagine the madness that came with this film. It's a great film for the eyes, but not necessarily for the ears. I agree with the people who say that the soundtrack is awful. The music in the film is terrible. The music in the film is horrible. I agree with the people who say that the film is a mess. It's too long, and sometimes it's just too slow. It's a movie about a time in history, but there are so many holes, so many mistakes, that it's hard to really understand what is going on. In the end, I really liked this movie, because it shows the turmoil of a time in history, and I'm a movie critic. It's a good movie for the eyes, but not necessarily for the ears.

This documentary is a wonderful depiction of the life and times of the man Cecil Rothchild, a real-life story about a man who made his mark on the world in the early 1900's. I was never particularly interested in the story of Cecil Rothchild. I did find it amusing that he was so happy, yet also determined to make a difference in the world, despite his age and reputation. This documentary does a great job of explaining why he made his mark, and how he did it. This documentary is worth seeing for the characters, the history, and for the message it brings. The real Cecil Rothchild is a fascinating character, and this documentary captures his life, personality, and personality, as well as his message about helping people. A must see.

Cecil B. DeMented is an American comedian, known for his politically incorrect humor and the use of racial stereotypes. In the early 1990s, his act was a big hit, so much so that his stand-up comedy was a TV show. He was even known for his raunchy jokes. He has been known for his sexually explicit humor. He is a white supremacist, with an antisemitic past. The documentary "Cecil B. DeMented: An American Tragedy" (2017) tells the story of a man who used to be a big star in America, but has now become a social pariah. The film reveals the strange world of DeMented, who is a drunk, rude, racist, homosexual, and generally bad guy. He's also a white supremacist, although he denies it. This is a bizarre story, but it's important. We need to see this because white supremacy is a big problem in the United States today. People who are racist are still dangerous and should be brought to justice. If DeMented is not convicted of a crime, he'll face a very harsh sentence. The documentary is interesting, and it's also revealing. There are also some funny moments. It's not the best documentary I've ever seen, but it's good. The main problem is that DeMented is really strange. It's very difficult to watch, and there are some scenes that are not really funny. There are also some moments that don't really fit the story, and they don't really fit in the context of the film. But, that doesn't matter. The director, Carl Bernstein, has done a great job. The film is very detailed and very interesting. It's very clear, and it doesn't drag or bore. It's an interesting story, and I think that it's worth watching.

I didn't really expect much out of this film, given that it is a docudrama. But I was wrong. It was excellent. I have never been a big fan of Michael Moore. He's always been one of those "interesting" documentaries, which have a tendency to glorify or glorify their subjects. But this is an exception. This film is well-written and excellent. It was very informative, and made me question how people actually behave in the real world. It's very well-produced, and most of the time, it's funny, if a little crude. I especially liked the scenes with Michael Moore and George W. Bush. It was extremely funny. And there were some very good music choices. I was very surprised to see that this film was nominated for several Oscars. It was very well-produced, and the acting was great. I'm a fan of Edward Norton, and I think he did an amazing job in this film. He's not the typical Michael Moore actor, but he was very good in this film. He was also very funny in this film. But what really stood out to me was the music. The music was very good. I recommend this film to anyone who likes documentaries, and anyone who has an interest in the world. I think this film will stand the test of time well. 8/10

It's only appropriate to have a documentary about one of our greatest humanists. It's only appropriate that we should have a film about a man who made so many things happen in our life, that many people would have died to help. It's only appropriate that this is about the son of a minister, whose contributions are so far-reaching and significant. It's only appropriate that this is a documentary about his son. I think it's important for all of us to understand what a man like Cecil Lutcher would have done in his life and what a man like Johnny Depp could do today, given the right circumstances. This is a film that is both informative and inspirational, and it's very well-done.

I have never been a particularly big fan of wildlife documentaries, but I was so moved by this documentary, I have watched it a few times since. I could not help but think of this film as a children's book, except that the children in this film are teenagers, and in this case, teenagers are not as stupid as they are portrayed. The story is about the life of Cecil the Lion, who was killed in Zimbabwe by an American dentist named Walter Palmer. I would also like to say that the movie is great, because it is an entertaining story, and you should be entertained. And in conclusion, it's a great story, and one that everyone should watch.

In its own way, Cecil's compelling exploration of the pervasiveness of family violence in the United States serves as a stark reminder that we as a society have an obligation to look out for and to protect vulnerable people who, no matter how we treat them, will continue to pose a threat to us all. With such a powerful movie on its hands, it's hard not to get caught up in its message. However, Cecil is not without its flaws. For one thing, it is a bit slow moving at times. Moreover, some of the interviewees are just plain annoying. The problem with this film is that its message and its message alone is a bit too heavy. To truly appreciate it, one needs to have the courage to view it with an open mind, and to believe that there are still plenty of people out there who care enough to make this movie come to life. Also, there are some obvious points of controversy in Cecil that keep it from reaching the "great" status it should have had. For example, I found it to be quite shocking to see an entire town of teenagers run riot when the young man in question was accused of raping a minor. Of course, it's possible that these people are just not very bright. However, I also found it somewhat offensive that Cecil (in one of its many ironic scenes) describes a female friend of the accused as a "kiddie-poo". To me, this was just plain sexist. I also found the scene in which Cecil tries to calm a crying child in front of a camera to be a little too "progressive" for my taste. The way Cecil portrays the plight of the boy is more "harmless" than the behavior that the boy must have been subjected to. It's also quite strange that Cecil's main focus seems to be the abuse of a child. I can't help but wonder what the director's intention was. The last thing I want to say is that the main character of Cecil (played by Adam Gierasch) is a real character. He is a young man with a lot of love and support, who is so strong that he can do what many in his situation cannot do: raise a child from a rape conviction. I would recommend Cecil to anyone who has ever suffered from family violence, or to anyone who has ever been a victim of domestic violence. I have never seen a documentary that so effectively and effectively conveyed the power of family violence to its victims.

I watched this movie on the first night it was shown. I was really impressed with how it was put together. The film was very much like the one that was shown in The PBS show "Wet Hot American Summer". It was very funny. The acting was very good. The scenes with the guys at the gas station and the fact that they were giving out candy was pretty great. I recommend this movie to anyone who is into their music, culture, or the movie genre. It is a great way to introduce someone to a group or to someone who has never heard of any of the artists on the band. The documentary is great and I highly recommend it.

The best thing about this film is how it shows the child's reactions to the various physical and mental challenges. It's really remarkable to see how a young child can go from a happy, jovial child to a worrying, anxious, and disoriented child. Although the father, who is also an expert in psychology, tries to put his finger on why the child is exhibiting such bizarre behavior, his explanations are as impossible as they are disturbing. It's really like watching a live demonstration of a child's psychological problems. It's hard to tell what's real and what's not. To add insult to injury, the father is so annoyed with the child that he takes it upon himself to try to help the child learn to cope with the experience. How on earth is this even possible? I'm really at a loss here. This documentary should be watched by parents, because it's a warning for them.

David Byrne is a well-known comic artist, so I have a good familiarity with his work. His story about the "Love, Cecil" web series was interesting to me, as it was based on the real-life story of an unfortunate, but extremely successful comic book artist, who was left to suffer in a mental hospital for nearly five years after an attempted suicide. While I didn't find the documentary on the web site very informative, it did give some background information about the man who created the web series and the people who helped him. For example, he was a real-life character, and the web series was not autobiographical. He wasn't making the web series to cash in on his fame, and it's quite possible that the web series didn't gain as much attention as some of his other comics. In addition, it was very interesting to hear the different people who worked on the web series tell their stories. The other person I thought was really interesting was the man who wrote the comic book adaptation. Although the film doesn't offer a lot of insight into the process of adapting the web series for the screen, it did give insight into the process of the actual comic book adaptation. The film did provide some background information about the web series, but it did not go into great detail about how the adaptation was made, as it's something that would have been quite a task to do. While it's certainly a worthwhile documentary, it's also quite a difficult one to watch. Some people will find it boring, and some will find it very informative. The documentary itself is quite interesting, but it does take a little bit of time to get into. Although the documentary did do a good job of telling the story, it does seem to go on forever. While I appreciate a good documentary, I think the movie could have been longer, and it does leave a lot of questions unanswered. While the film is certainly a good documentary, it definitely isn't something that I would recommend watching on a regular basis.

With the entire span of history in our lives, including our past and present, there are many things that we forget and take for granted. This documentary "The 5th of November" focuses on a little known, yet influential, aspect of the Christmas season that may be hard to get around: The Five Points Massacre. It is a brutal and brutalizing event in New York City that is told in a very slow and deliberate manner. The film starts with a non-descript back story of the Five Points Massacre, and then we are transported into the gritty and dramatic real-life details of the event. Through the incredible experiences of five men, we get a clear sense of what a horrible event it was. The film is not at all overly sentimental or political. It is truly a story about a group of people who were deeply affected by this tragedy. The film is also surprisingly well-done and professionally produced. The performances are not outstanding, but they are certainly believable. The story itself is a story of the horrors of the war, but the film is really a story about the individuals who witnessed it and the impact it had on their lives. I found the first part of the film to be particularly gripping and compelling. The second part of the film was slow, and there were some moments of almost boring silence, but the story was still captivating. I was particularly struck by the performances of Richard Williams, George Segal, and Richard Chamberlain, who all contributed extremely well to the movie. They were all extremely well-acted, and it is hard not to care about their story and their characters. This was a story about one man, the people who knew him, and the events that he was involved in. This movie is a must-see for any film-lover.

I saw this documentary as a single man, after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, with a disability and that alone was enough for me to turn off the TV. But I was shocked by the depth of the issue. The subject of MS has been pretty much ignored in the mainstream media and in society. It's not a simple medical disease but a hard to treat neurological disorder that can cause loss of the use of your body, thinking, and vision. The documentary was told from the point of view of MS patients, doctors and family members and it was refreshing to see someone who really understood and was willing to be as candid as possible. The documentary is very compelling and the people are easy to identify with. The whole documentary is very uplifting and inspiring. I am glad I saw it and will definitely see it again.

Cecil B. DeMille's 1897 classic, "The Ten Commandments", is so powerful that it has been deemed the perfect film for telling the story of Moses. The film was made before the time of cellphones, but it is still a wonderful and poignant film to watch. The movie shows how an ancient and holy man was transformed by his mission to the God of the Bible. However, the movie shows how the journey of Moses was often hard and harsh. Even after his ascension, he was often a man who had to leave behind his God and his friends, and move on with his life. The movie shows the daily life of Moses and his companions. He is frequently followed by his close friends and confidants, and his experiences are never the same as they were in the original version. The film also gives the viewer a sense of pride for Moses. The filmmakers show the people of ancient Egypt as if they were living in the modern day. There is a great sense of awe and reverence that the people in Egypt are shown as they would be if they were living in the present. The story of Moses is shown in a way that makes it seem very realistic. The filmmakers also show the story of the Exodus, and how Moses was in charge of the Exodus. They also show how he grew into the role of a strong leader. The film also shows that God is still very much present in Egypt. This film is extremely well made and very well told. The filming is very well done. The actors all give great performances. The camera work is also very well done. The music is also very good, and at times makes the movie even more emotional. The movie also gives the viewer a sense of awe and reverence. I highly recommend this movie.

Every once in a while you stumble upon a documentary that really is something special. I don't know what it is, but it's rare and I enjoyed this one very much. I don't know how to describe it, but it was a very positive and enlightening film. It was also very fun to watch. It's not a story of the night before Christmas but a story of how we, as a society, deal with that time of the year. We like to celebrate the season but it is also about the death of loved ones. The film focuses on the many families of those who died during this time of the year. It shows how they cope and how they find ways to cope. You can understand their pain and how they deal with it. It shows how they have to make the most of their day but also how they feel that they are constantly losing hope. I have seen many documentaries that are on this subject and they all show the same thing, a person goes through this cycle. It's not just about the death of a loved one but also the mourning period. The way that we deal with it is very different from the person who has lost a loved one. In this film it is the everyday people who have lost a loved one. I think that the documentary was really well done and I really enjoyed it. I think it was very important to show the way that people cope with this time of the year. I don't know what it is but it's very special. I recommend this film to everyone who enjoys documentaries and especially to those who are sad and depressed.
