This movie is one of the best documentaries I have seen. I have been following Mr. B-52's work for years, and found it extremely refreshing to see his story, and his personal battles. Mr. B-52's mission was to make a documentary about his son and how they were at the height of their careers. The son in question was then a 4 year old boy, and is now an adult. They had been on a mission for two years, and were flying back home to Cuba on May 5th, 1975. They were assigned to escort the family of an American journalist, and then the mission would be over. However, the mission went awry, and they had to be rescued. They had no choice but to be in a Cuban jail for three years. I have found that a lot of documentaries have a very predictable story line. This movie was not predictable at all, it was more of a true story, and it had a very emotional ending. I highly recommend this film, and it is definitely worth watching. I hope this helps you decide if it is something you would like to watch.

I agree with all of the reviews here, this is a great film and I highly recommend it. Although it is a little long, it is worth it.

I had been looking for this film for months and finally got to see it at the LACMA in Los Angeles. I was really shocked at the ending and the way it ended. I am so glad that this documentary was made because it changed my life. I wanted to know more about this film but I knew nothing about it. I am so glad that this film was made because it made me feel like I was an active part of this documentary. I would love to know more about the reasons why they wanted to make this documentary and how it was made. I would love to hear what people thought of the film and who they thought it should be viewed. I also want to know what people thought of the ending of this film. I was really shocked by the ending of the documentary. I think it was a really good ending and I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in life and how it affects us.

This documentary is a wonderful mix of historical facts, and personal stories of people who had a part in the creation of the epic. The interviews are almost nonstop, and the narrator is terrific. There are many great anecdotes about people who were involved in the project. I was particularly taken with the stories of a young man who was the son of one of the scientists who was burned at the stake and the scientist who died. This documentary is worth watching for all of the people who were involved in the creation of the film.

What a wonderful, inspiring, and thought provoking documentary that I absolutely loved. I could not recommend it more highly.

The worst thing about being a dog lover is having to endure the love and attention from people who have absolutely no understanding of the bond that exists between you and your pet. This documentary does a great job at getting to the bottom of this taboo. It was interesting to hear people's opinions on the subject, but as for the conclusion, it is just plain stupid. This documentary should be a lesson to the people who do not have a clue about the bond between a dog and its owner. The dog lover should have a lot of respect for the dog lovers.

I had the privilege to watch this documentary at the San Francisco International Film Festival, where it won the award for Best Documentary Feature. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to talk with the director and screenwriter, as well as a few other people in the film. They are the kind of people that I wish I had more of the chance to meet and share my thoughts with. I think they were right in their assessment of how our culture is dealing with same-sex relationships and the differences between the ways people perceive them. However, there are many issues in our culture that I think are more important than same-sex relationships. I think the culture of the United States is in a state of crisis. There is a lot of talk about how we should be accepting of people in their relationships, but it is obvious that we have not learned how to accept people without problems. The way we treat people who are gay or lesbian is so much different from how we treat people who are straight. I think this film is a great example of how we can learn to deal with our problems with these differences. I hope that we will be able to find a way to have these kinds of discussions about same-sex relationships in our own culture. I hope that this movie will help us to be more tolerant of people who are different from us.

I'm not sure what to make of this documentary, but I think the main thrust of it is a reassessment of the war in Iraq. And although it's not without controversy, the film is compelling and certainly worth seeing. I agree with the viewer's general verdict that it's too long, but I think it's necessary to get the story of the war out there, and especially if you're going to see the film, you're going to want to know more about what the war is all about.

I really enjoyed this documentary and I think it's important to have the facts and information about animal cruelty in the media. I'm sure there's a lot of misinformation about how to do a good job and how to do animal protection. I hope people who do animal rights and/or veganism watch this documentary and learn from it. It's definitely one of the best documentaries I have seen in a long time. I'm sure there's a lot of misconceptions about veganism and animal rights in the media, so it's good to see this documentary to get that information out. I really enjoyed it. I'm also really glad that animal rights organizations are starting to take notice of this documentary and are starting to change the way they do things. I hope this documentary helps to change some of the misconceptions people have about veganism and animal rights. I think that it's definitely important for people to watch this documentary and learn more about the issues.

I'll be honest I wasn't expecting much from this movie. I was skeptical it would be as good as it was. After all it's a documentary and it's just a guy filming the whole time. But I'm so glad I watched it. It was really great. It's really nice to see people who have had a great impact on their lives and how they deal with death. It's so amazing to see how people handle their last days and how they come to terms with their own mortality. This is a documentary of a very special man. And it's not just about Buddy but about his family. He's a man who was really touched by his son's death. He had a vision that his son would never die. And he wanted to create a memorial that would be beautiful and be able to remember him and his son. And this movie does that. It's very touching. It really is. And I hope you'll watch it and you'll appreciate it as much as I did.

I really like Buddy and I hope that the movie will be made. I know that I am the only person who liked Buddy. I have been a fan of his since his first movie in the 1980s, but I am a complete film nut and have seen all of his films. I loved the first one and was very much looking forward to the second. I was very surprised to hear that there was going to be a third film, and that this was going to be a TV movie. I was very disappointed. I will watch the movie, but I hope that the movie is not ruined by the bad publicity it got. The movie was good, but it could have been better. I also hope that the producers and the cast will be able to do a much better job. There are too many people who are not fans of Buddy. I hope that they will be able to do a better job in the future.

I was fortunate enough to meet and interview the director of this film, and I was not disappointed. He has a brilliant story to tell, and I am truly grateful to be able to witness this and share it with all of you.

I saw this film at the Nuart Festival in San Francisco. It was a great experience seeing the documentary, the words of the leading actor, and the very real reactions of the actors in the movie. I was a big fan of David Bowie and his music. I was very impressed that he had access to actors from this story. He was able to connect with them and let them know what they were going through. He was very thorough with his research and I was very impressed. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in music, or anyone who is curious about the human condition.

This film is great. I don't know where to start. The first 10 minutes is an amazing montage of the day. I didn't know what to expect, I thought it was going to be a long documentary of the day. I was wrong. The best part is when they go to the doctor to get the temperature. This is what I thought. The doctor says, "You need to go to the hospital. You're going to have to go in an hour." I was like "OK, I'll go." My reaction was "this is not going to be good." The doctors and nurses are talking about their babies, talking about the food they're eating, and all the stress and everything else that you would expect. It really feels like the camera was there and they were filming for a whole hour. The documentary is great. The doctors are great. I'm glad I saw this movie. I am so glad I saw this movie. It is great.

I've watched this film over a dozen times, and each time I'm shocked by the sheer clarity and power of it. Not only does it touch upon some of the darkest and most horrific truths about war, but it does so in a way that can be understood by anyone. The viewer can see from the beginning that there is no easy solution to the issues of conflict and peace. The viewer can see that there is no solution in the absence of a common, true sense of unity. This film leaves no one unscathed and I hope that it will be widely distributed, especially in the wake of the current violence in the world.

I have a hard time believing that a documentary about one of the most heinous crimes in American history would have been produced by a mainstream media company. The documentary is extremely well done. I don't know where to begin. The first segment is about the downfall of the legal system in the United States. It is told from a family member's point of view. The documentary is well-balanced, as is the first segment, and is not biased. The second segment is about the truth of the false accusations against the accused. It is told from a victim's point of view. It is balanced, and not biased. I don't think I can recommend this film to anyone. It is not an objective film. It is more like a documentary about a story you have heard a million times. You have heard it, but you have never seen it. I recommend this film to people who are looking for a good documentary. It is well-made, well-edited, and well-acted. This is a must-see film.

The documentary Buddy is the best documentary I have ever seen, not only is the acting of the two leads outstanding but the documentary is also really moving. The documentary is very well thought out and executed, it really gives you the feeling of being in the middle of it all. I've been following Buddy for awhile and was very impressed with it. I've always been a fan of his and the documentary has really made me appreciate him more. The documentary really makes you feel like you are there with Buddy and it's also very realistic. I truly hope you find the documentary and watch it as soon as you can because it is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

This documentary is a must see for anyone who cares about the future of mankind. This documentary is very well done and contains some great interviews with the scientists and celebrities involved. The documentary is informative and entertaining, but it is also very educational as it details the science behind climate change and the impact it will have on our children and future generations. The documentary is well edited, the interviews are interesting and they give great insight to how this is an important issue. It is definitely worth watching, especially for those who are concerned about the impact that global warming is having on the environment.
