Fascinating, powerful and genuinely moving film about Haiti, a land of mystery that is steeped in superstition and horror. The real estate developer, Ronald Pereira, along with his family and friends, are investigated for high treason after the discovery of a company contract to build homes in the French Quarter. This documentary examines the history of Haitian Americans, the roots of their independence, their involvement in the uprising against the former French colonial government, and the rise of the famous party "the Project." It is a journey into a hidden world that has shaped our country and our region. The cast is superb, especially Richard Farnsworth, in a powerful performance as Pereira's father and former mayor of New York City. By far one of the best movies I have seen in recent years. Fantastic and unforgettable.

I'm not a big fan of the Iraq war but I was looking for a documentary about the Iraq war and this film really made me think about it. It was a really good film that showed the suffering of the Iraqi people. I think that it is important to show the suffering of the Iraqi people and not only the Iraqis. This film also showed the suffering of the US soldiers in Iraq and they should be ashamed. I'm not sure if this film was supposed to be about the Iraq war but it is a good film and I recommend it to people who want to know more about the Iraq war.

This movie has to be one of the best documentaries of all time. I was concerned at the first glance, that there wasn't enough information on the subject, but no problem. It didn't matter. This movie tells the tale of the 1919 Paris Commune, and how it was captured by the police and sent to the Viceroy of War. Everything that they captured was read as a declaration of war, by all sides. The Socialist (sometimes called Communist) Party was denounced as traitors, but in reality they were taking the guns of soldiers and giving them to those who needed them. The propaganda machine that had built up to this was removed. No surprise to anyone that a movie such as this could be made. From the moment they set foot on that field, and the town was evacuated and people were taken to jail, it was clear that this was not about a commune that was ever created, but rather a situation where the "veiled enemy" had a certain amount of power. All the propaganda could be removed. Only a few words were read as warning. The fact that the Commune was captured, and the movie shows that the person who says "The Commune won" is being more deceitful than any person I've ever known. This is an important movie, I could go on forever about it, but I won't. What I will say is that if you take your family to see it, then you are more than welcome to see it. If you see it alone, then you are a bit of a nut. But if you don't have family, then I would also strongly recommend that you see it.

It is not often that I see a documentary about the Nazis, and it is a rarer when they are one of the most prominent ideologies in a Western society, from which a documentary like 'Restraint of the Tiger' is supposed to come. But this is one of those documentaries, filmed in an apparently neutral country, that is one of the best works of its kind I have seen. We can read the historical background on this documentary on the DVD, and I think it does indeed add to the stories told here. But at the same time, the documentary does not force the issue on the viewer, neither exaggerates the historical context. As a result, this is a fascinating documentary that is fascinating because it is very good. Yes, it is not without flaws: it leaves out some information that might be important, and it is not so long that it becomes unendurable. Nevertheless, as a documentary, it is very good. Not as an experience to see the Nazis, but as an experience to see the changing perspectives of a totalitarian society, as the dominant ideology of the German and Western society, towards the end of the Second World War.

In 2007, Al Jazeera aired the "Arok" documentary about one man who made a huge amount of money through real estate investments, but it was the worst film of the year, and one of the worst that I have ever seen. Unfortunately, the film was not released to DVD until 2015, but one can't avoid the first viewing when you go to see a film. I, unfortunately, couldn't see the film until now, and I am extremely glad I did. The film is based on the history of Iceland, and a friend of mine said that Iceland will be the next Israel. Although a short film, the documentary is mesmerizing and gives you an insight about the country that it has made. I really can't praise this film enough, I have seen it 4 times since it came out, and I'll be sure to buy it on DVD as soon as it is released. I highly recommend seeing this film, it is definitely not the worst film ever. If you haven't seen it, you need to!

The movie is very moving. It is not like other documentaries that show a wrong decision or a bad behaviour. The story is based on the present war. It shows you from the early days of the war to the present days of the conflict. The director of the documentary, DaSilva, has brought together some very important people who dealt with the Yugoslav conflict during the time and still exist today. The reporter from Europe1 interviewed many experts, like Belgrade city mayor, a former political leader from Slobodan Milosevic's Yugoslavia and political analyst, journalist and former student of Slobodan Milosevic's politics. The director also interviewed people from Serbia who have been involved in the conflict. The film is about two camps - one in Sarajevo and one in Belgrade. The documentary shows us all of the important moments in the two camps and the story behind them. It also shows us the war from the inside of both camps. For instance the time of the Second Siege, the three stories of the refugees, the journalist and the activist from the Netherlands, who was involved in the Bosnian civil war, or the student in Serbia, who saw all the war happening in the Balkans at the time of the war and then became a journalist. It is a very powerful film. The only problem is the slow pace in the film. Some parts are boring. We have to wait for the next story. But it is a great documentary and it is a must watch.

This is a film that I have seen several times in the past and it never fails to grab me in a big way. It deals with one of the most powerful, and unknown issues that you would not know about and has the guts to deal with it in a mature manner. For the most part, it does a great job of bringing the topic to life. For a film on an under-reported issue, it talks about it in a very realistic manner. The questions the film poses are true, even if they are never directly answered. It is heartbreaking to watch these people, their dreams and their hardships, and the realisation that they are not alone. The acting is brilliant, and the relationship between the protagonist and the main antagonist is very, very interesting. This film is one that I can watch over and over again and will never tire of. It is the first movie to make me cry so hard I could not even cry, and the final scenes leave you feeling as if you have just been swept away and so badly wants to be there with them. They will stay in your mind for a long time.

This is one of those documentaries that, once you see it, you want to watch it over and over again. Sure it is not a perfect film, but it is great. It is hard to criticize a film for having one or two flaws. Especially when it is so well produced and directed. I had high expectations for this movie, and I couldn't have been more disappointed. I give it a 10 out of 10 because I really enjoyed it. I saw it at the San Francisco International Film Festival. I went to see the film at their booth and enjoyed it because of the great attention to detail, and the fact that the screening was open to the public. It is an amazing, well-directed, funny, insightful, and emotional film that, once you see it, you want to watch it over and over again.

I went to see this movie with a friend and he is a huge movie buff and he was not disappointed. This is the first time I have ever gone to a movie and been bored, this movie kept me glued to my seat and it was great. This is not a movie for everyone but if you want to see a movie that is entertaining and has a good story to it this is the movie for you. I give it an 8/10. I was surprised at the amount of bad reviews this movie received. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a good story that is not over the top. The cast was good and I think they did a great job in telling the story. I hope that this movie gets a lot of attention because I think it is a great movie.

This documentary takes a look at the life of a child molester, a child molester who is caught in a scandal that has rocked the world. What the film does not do is focus on the actual crimes. Instead, the film focuses on the corruption that surrounds the child molester, and how it affects the people around him. It is a very powerful documentary that is well worth seeing.

I guess this is what you could call a personal life movie. This movie is quite sad and quite depressing but it shows you what happened to Palestinians. There is no crime in it, but what happened is this: The Israeli army started its siege on the Al-Aqsa Mosque which is forbidden. They smashed all the windows and doors, from the Shuhada Market, to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and destroyed all the buildings in the Palestinian territory. All those buildings are now occupied by the Israeli army. So we saw that people inside the mosque were getting killed. And what did they do to get killed, they got beaten, and they were left to die. And it wasn't that Israeli soldiers that killed people, they were killed by Palestinians and some of them were still alive. Palestinians are out on the streets against the Israeli occupation and they are doing it openly and with aggression. The movie depicts very well the lives of Palestinians, and I think that people who have seen it will find it interesting. I recommend to people to see it, because it is quite upsetting, but that's what a documentary should be about.

It is easy to see why this film is so polarizing. Everyone either likes it or hates it. There is no middle ground, so to speak. If you like documentaries, this one will blow your mind, but you must be a passionate fan of the subject to get the full effect. If you're a filmmaker, you won't care. It is still worth seeing, but you must understand the political subtext to fully appreciate it. It is hard to describe in words, and that is what makes this film so powerful. As if from a shadow, almost magical, a great movement has emerged in its native land: a growing group of people, fighting for the survival of their way of life. If you don't believe it, just watch the scenes. You'll see how the current political situation mirrors those in the past, from the freedom of speech to the censorship and the freedom of religion. As well as the wild resistance to government oppression. It is this group of people who led to a democratic revolution, and as the movie shows, it is the only reason the government is working on halting the modernization of their country. They represent the true hope for the future, a perfect democracy in the land of the rising sun. This movie has a great voice to work with, and a solid and informative content that shouldn't be overlooked. I rate it 9/10.

Rainer Maria (Dr. Jorge Maldonado) who is in control of the State of Catalonia in the Iberian Peninsula, the most important of the many autonomous regions, has been forced to resign the positions of a number of ministers of the government and he wants to put a negative image about the social policies of the Catalan Government. Of course, Dr. Maldonado is not the first person to do this, the most important of them is the President of Catalonia and the people who he represents. This film shows the politics of the Catalan Government, their alliances with conservative parties, the military actions against the workers' councils, and their reaction to the events. What follows is an excellent analysis of how the political campaign and the brutal rule of the 'Government' can lead to people's terror and complete destruction. I believe that it is necessary for the people of Catalonia to know that their government, with their current leaders, are opposed to democratic principles and to the goals of the people. The message is very important, as is the analysis, and because of this it is the best political film that I have seen, and I am sure that it will be in the minds of a lot of people, who in the near future may even become involved in the processes that will lead to a change of power. The news of violence against the police in Barcelona is no doubt a concern for people, even though we are probably not aware of all the details. But there is not one important thing that is written here, because the truth is in the viewer's hands. It is all the information that the film gives us, and even the fact that Dr. Maldonado is an opponent of the Republic of Catalonia. But that is not enough to allow the viewer to make up his or her mind.

When I watched the film "There is no Russia" I expected to find a documentary about the Soviet Union. I expected to see pictures of the Gulag, the gulag workers, or the gulag prison. Instead, I got a film about the genocide of the Bosnian Serbs, the United States, and the destruction of Bosnia. This is not an adequate picture of the Soviet Union, and it is not an adequate picture of the Bosnian Serbs. I left the theater with more questions than answers, but I leave with the feeling that this film has much more to say about the events of the Bosnian War than I thought. I won't answer the many questions this film raises, but I'll try to add a few things to my own answer. This film portrays the atrocities of the Bosnian War as if they were just another war. It shows the US and the NATO nations as heroes, yet no one appears to have asked why they were so eager to bomb those countries. Instead, we are shown the destruction and panic that takes place when the weapons are dropped, but no one seems to have wondered how many people the war has killed. The only question that is asked of the people in this film is why the Russians are helping the Bosnian Serbs. The CIA and the State Department appear to be helping the Serbs, yet the Russians aren't even asked how they are helping the Serbs. Instead, they are shown as outright aggressors, and the people are expected to call the Serbs "murderers" because of what they have done. The Serbs are shown as the "bad guys" in the war, and the Russians are the "good guys" in the war. By this sort of thinking, the conflict was about good, the Soviets, the West, and Russia. The Serbs were shown as the aggressors and the Americans were the victims. In one scene, a young man accuses the Serbs of the "war crimes" committed in Bosnia. After this statement is made, the camera shows a picture of the Bosnian Serbs in a bar, and another man accuses the Serbs of killing 8,000 people. At the end of the film, the young man says, "I don't know who the Russians are." The young man says, "I don't know who the Serbs are." I think that the question asked of the film is why are they not clear about who the Serbs are and who the Serbs are not? I think it is a question of what it means to be an aggressor and what it means to be a victim. I think the whole point of the movie is to make the US and NATO look evil by calling the Serbs "murderers." However, the movie is based on a simple fact, which is that both the US and NATO would have supported a Bosnian state. When asked to explain this, the interviewees at the end of the film point out that they would have helped to save Bosnia. I think the point the film was trying to make was that this is not a good example to teach history to the world, but it is a good example of

A few years ago I saw this film at the New York Film Festival. It was an award winning film that changed my life. It was about the Rohingya of Myanmar (Burma) who suffer atrocities. The story unfolds at the same time as a US Senate hearing on terrorism in this same country. This is where I have learned more about the Rohingya than any movie I have seen, and it brings me to tears. The director was a friend of mine, and we are like brothers. We all took our own turns telling the story and looking at the faces of the Rohingya. When I first saw the movie, I could not take my eyes off the screen. The people were so honest. I began to understand that people don't seem to care about other people's lives. They care only about themselves. I started to look into this story for myself. We see the inhumanity and exploitation of the Rohingya. We see the pride and self-respect that the Rohingya have in the face of the Muslim persecution. We see the potential for a new generation of brave Rohingya. It is a story about people. It is not a story about politics, not a story about religion, not about religion and not about government. The people of the world have to change and protect this beautiful nation. This is a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone.

Rent this movie and see for yourself what it's all about. A group of Afghans who defected from the Taliban have made a documentary about their experience and how the US is to blame for everything. Overall, this is a great documentary that you can watch with the family or a friend, and enjoy the ups and downs, which is no easy task. What the filmmakers have managed to achieve here is an intelligent and penetrating look at what life on the battlefield for these young men has been like. While this film has been lauded in many areas, it hasn't been that well-received by the general American public. Perhaps that is because its directors and other crewmembers have a black background and many do not have much education or experience in the field. As someone who spent some time in Afghanistan, I can say that the film is factual and shows the truth of what these young men have been through. It's a good movie and worth seeing if you get the chance to see it.

Given the reputation of Pulitzer Prize winner Marshall McLuhan, you would think that a movie about him would be a pure thriller, a film about his life and mind. Instead it was a movie about the impact of the ideas behind him on people. With a topic like this, there are bound to be some somewhat controversial subjects that need to be investigated. While most of the time the subject matter is not important (like the occult or the politics of the 60s), the movie is definitely a treat for McLuhan fans, who were forced to sit through "Prozac Nation" or "Million Dollar Baby" when they had nothing else to do. There is no doubt in my mind that the people in this movie are the greatest McLuhan fans on the planet. When they made this movie, I wasn't sure about the subject matter or whether or not the movie would be about McLuhan. After watching it, I found out that it's more than a movie about McLuhan, it's an engaging story about the impact of his ideas on the people in the world. McLuhan is not just a movie, it's a full time job of being a collector of his work and the people who came after him.

I was in awe of this documentary. It was so much more than I could have imagined. It was so powerful and beautifully done. It covered so much that most documentaries don't seem to. The use of voice-over told me so much and gave me a sense of perspective on things that were previously glossed over. The cinematography was just perfect. When you are watching, you can't help but be in the moment, and that is exactly what the film does. You can't help but be. I recommend this movie to anyone, and especially to anyone who works in a service profession or has a connection to any person who has ever been affected by something like World War II. It is so much more than just a history lesson. I highly recommend it, and I hope the film goes far and wide. It is a fascinating look at a very controversial period in history, and a personal connection to a very personal time in the history of the human race.

This is a great documentary on the subject of Kenya's 2009/10 Freedom Charter, enacted by the Kenyan parliament. The story starts with the National Assembly of Kenya's 2008 election. Then, we see the government being brought to the wall by the opposition. Then, we see the party of President Uhuru Kenyatta go to war with the opposition and the country in general. For a non-Kenyan, this would seem to be a very familiar story. For Kenyans, the government is a highly controversial issue. Both Kenyans, and international observers, will not be fond of the ways of the military. This is a movie that shows just how terrible and dangerous the military has become, both for the people of Kenya and the world. The violence, which started with the 2011 elections, continues unabated. The question is: How can a government get away with such a gross violation of its people's human rights? By the time of the 2009/10 elections, people were not interested in voting. When the military came to power, one would not have thought that the authorities would be treated like this. This is a story about politics, about the nature of leadership, about the warring factions that a democracy cannot afford to tolerate. The Movie itself is well-made. The directing is good, the performances are solid, and the cinematography is also very good. The most touching scene in the film is the husband-wife dance at the wedding. The movie itself is well-produced. There are scenes that are difficult to watch. But, it is worth it. It is good to see this film again, with fresh eyes.

I thought that this film was very well made and very interesting. I am not an expert on the conflict in Kosovo but I thought that it was very well done. I thought that it was very moving and the film was very informative. I thought that the actors were very good and very believable in their roles. I thought that the film was very well made. It is not the best film I have ever seen but it is a very good film. I think that it is a very good film and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the conflict in Kosovo.

The issues of the Ukraine crisis are complex and are still not resolved. The US and the EU signed a new bailout deal for the country. President Obama could not get the difference he wanted. Russia has moved troops into its exclave of Kaliningrad and threatens an invasion of Ukraine. NATO is deployed in Europe and President Obama has promised to send 100,000 ground troops. The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, claimed he had nothing to do with the "armed" protests in Ukraine. It is clear that these protests are in support of the current government. These are not pro-Russian but there is some concern about the situation. What is the logic of a government which seems to be loosing its grip on power and in which political and security experts say it is no longer able to hold its government and the country together? Can the government maintain its grip? An international tribunal is expected to hand down its verdict in the next few weeks and most experts agree that it is likely to be disappointing. The protests in Kiev, in particular, do not seem to have been coordinated. It is difficult to understand what effect they have had on the country's authorities. This documentary is worth viewing if only to see the power struggles between politicians. The usual suspects are in the center of it, even if they are not on the agenda. The candidates are able to play the role of representative, but their personalities are both unique and are made up of individual qualities. The people behind these candidates are not first-rate politicians. The film focuses on one of the key contenders, an obscure politician whose party is the most popular in Ukraine. The film also focuses on the personal relationships between various political figures, although the political personalities are a little well-known. All in all, this is a good film about the politics of Ukraine. One would have expected that the US and Europe would have been all that was needed to carry out a coup and a new government, but in the end the Ukrainian people acted rather quietly and at first they had no intention of following the will of the country's leaders. The process was revealed to be a coup. It is an unfortunate way to get rid of a government. It is not fair to expect the people of the country to act with total honesty and coordination. Ukraine, however, was not able to overcome its problems and now it seems to be heading for bankruptcy. President Obama has not helped, but there is a chance that he will help. He has moved to a new process and the US government will probably not be willing to pay for the loans it has to take out. US foreign policy is much the same as when President Nixon pulled out of Vietnam in 1968. At least Nixon had the courage to go to the United Nations in the UN. President Obama is not in that category. He must take into consideration the opinions of Americans and US interests.

I have not seen this movie in quite some time but I remember it being on TV one day and I remember being really impressed with it. I have watched it a few times since and I really do not know what to make of it. It seems like a very long movie that is kind of dull and there are some parts where it just seems like a different movie. I think I will give it a chance when it comes to DVD. I think it is a very good movie but I think it could be a little better. I am not sure if it is just the time I watched it, or if it is the movie itself that is not quite as good as it could be.

This film is a wonderful example of what a good documentary should be like. I was impressed with the cast, the editing, the interesting use of music, and the new footage. The story is moving, and inspiring. Each time we see a new clip, we can see something new and interesting about the events that happened in Vietnam. The editing is excellent and keeps the story flowing. In short, I truly recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn about the event in Vietnam.

It is a great documentary. It is inspirational and also reminds us of how we have to face the problems. We can't ignore this problem because it is very much real. We have to live with it. I recommend this movie to people who are active in the struggle of the people in Gaza. It is the documentary of the struggle of the people who are fighting for freedom. They are fighting for their children, they are fighting for their freedom. This documentary tells us the story of Gaza. We can not ignore it because it is very real. I love this movie because it shows us what the people are doing.

I first saw the documentary I Knew I was in love when I was in 12th grade. I thought it was well made, even if it did have some flaws in the editing. I saw I Knew I was in love again recently and thought it was better than the first film. It starts out in a real place in Wyoming, that is a part of the US. I have the audio of the documentary, and it sounds great. I had the chance to see it at the San Diego International Film Festival and it did not disappoint. There was not a single part that was filmed incorrectly, which was a plus. The weather was very good, so was the music. I was reminded of a theme song, but the lyrics of the song are not the same as in the first film. They did make a point that they felt the first film could have contained content that was more explicit, and it could have been avoided. This is especially true because it is a longer movie, but I was not thinking of the movie as a whole, but about a few sequences. There were several scenes that I could not get through. The mood and the style of the music is very different from the first film. It is very different from American Pie. But again, I was thinking of the movie as a whole, and not about a few scenes. The music is still very good. Overall, I was very impressed with this movie. The first movie was completely different from the original and I did not understand what was missing, because it was a good story. The second one did not give as much depth and it did not have the same way of putting the story out in the public to address issues. It did feel rushed and not the same. The third one felt rushed, and I did not enjoy it as much as the first two. I thought this was a great way to change the story line. I was not a big fan of the first film, and this movie had me rethinking my opinions. It was very hard to get through this. I have a tendency to not watch movies as long as I can go, but this one was very, very hard to get through. I was bored during parts, but the only thing that I was not bored by was the music. It was a nice change of pace. I loved the movie, and I think it is a better way to view the first film. I like how this film did not focus on the Christian-Islamic war, but was just about a very normal couple going through the exact same things. The conflict between Muslims and Christians is a very sad part of the world and the world in general. I hope this film was able to change the way you see this part of the world. If you do not like this film, I would suggest you view the first film because the second film is much more interesting.

Watch this movie without knowing anything about it. It's a decent movie but with so many plot lines to follow. It could have been a movie of the year contender but it turned out to be just OK. It was so low on the political agenda as well. It was like watching 9/11 all over again. Like watching one of those protests all over again.

While the topic of the film is not as controversial as the subject of the film itself, it is still very well done. The film gives an accurate portrayal of what happened during the WWII and how the government and the people of America reacted to the situation. The film also has a very good story line and is well worth watching. I enjoyed this film and would recommend it to everyone.

I remember the first time I saw this movie. I was about 12 and I had never seen a movie in a theater before, so I watched it on the TV. It was a great movie for that age. I loved it then, and I love it now. It's a great story of love and the people who love it. I love it. I think it's great.

I really liked this film. The way it was filmed and the way the story was told was excellent. I have to say that I am not a fan of the news media and that was the main thing that made me think about the film. I have to say that the way that the story was told made it even more realistic. I don't know how they did that but it was awesome. It was a very good film. It was very good that they did not show the real thing, but the way they did it was amazing. I would recommend this film to everyone who is interested in seeing it. It was very good.
