To this day, I still do not know what to say to the woman that the very moment she speaks, she seems to be all of a sudden so very intelligent. I've always thought that I didn't know her as well as she knew me. The movie had me in tears in places. I was at a loss for words. The few moments that she spoke to me, it was as if she were speaking to the whole world. I knew that she was making it very clear to me that she is a special person, and that I will never understand her more than that. The reason I love this movie so much is that it makes me realize that I can never understand someone as well as I understand myself. I realize now, that to understand someone, you have to see them for who they really are. There are no two ways to love someone. I'm just a different kind of person, but I know that I will always be a mother, because I love my son, and that's enough for me. It's just the way I was born. But, I have learned that I can never know how anyone else would feel if I didn't have my son, so I will always be a mom, and I will always be the wife and the sister that I am. This is the greatest movie that I have ever seen. I think that everyone should see it. And if they don't like it, that's OK, because that's how I feel. I would like to tell people that I'm so proud of my husband and my son for the way they've helped me see life differently. I would like to tell people that I'm going to have a little boy that I will name after him, and I'm going to name him after my mother, because she was my inspiration. I'm going to name him after the man that my husband and I were able to get pregnant and raise a family. I hope that everyone that has ever had a child will see this movie, and I hope that everyone will see this movie, and that they will know that there are no two ways to love someone. This is what we're all fighting for, and it's what I'm fighting for. To the people that have not seen this movie, I hope that they will give it a chance and see it. I think that everyone should see this movie. And I hope that we all will someday get to know the people that we have been blessed to know, and that we will be able to tell the world about them. I hope that we will all be able to find a way to understand them.

The best documentary I have ever seen. I can't believe that this film won Best Documentary at the Academy Awards. It is a must see for anyone who has ever felt that their mother, daughter or sister was wronged by the system. You should see this film. It has the power to bring a tear to your eye, or make you feel so bad for all of the families and children who have been put through this horror of a situation. This documentary should be in every school in America. It is a must see.

I watched this film a week before the election. I was so frustrated by the media coverage of the campaign and how the mainstream media had treated the candidate, but decided to see the film to see how it was going to affect me personally. I left the cinema a different person. I now have a more objective view of the campaign, and I have decided that this was a major factor in my vote. As a former reporter, I can honestly say that I am not sure how people like Andrew Sullivan and Bill Kristol, who helped orchestrate the attack on McCain and the media, had not been tipped off to watch this film. The film does not pretend to be an unbiased portrayal of the media. It is clearly biased towards the media. The media has been instrumental in creating the perception that McCain is a 'warmonger', as this film shows. This perception has caused McCain to be attacked in the press and on the campaign trail. The way the media has treated McCain is totally contrary to the fact that McCain is a liberal who is willing to compromise with Republicans on key issues such as the Iraq war. The media can be a very effective tool in influencing people's opinions, but they should not be used to manipulate voters' minds. This film is proof that it is possible to see the media for what it is and to have the courage to reject the media. The media has a long history of manipulation and I do not believe that the media's portrayal of McCain is correct. The media has treated McCain unfairly in a very dishonest way, and the media should not be trusted. It is an honest attempt to provide an honest portrayal of the media, and a much more accurate portrayal than what we have been given. It is clear that this film will not be a success on the national election trail, but I believe that it will be a major success on the election campaign trail. The media is going to be greatly discredited and I hope that Americans have the courage to challenge the media for the way it has treated McCain and Obama. I urge Americans to see this film and take a stand against the media's treatment of McCain and Obama. The media is manipulating the election and if the media does not stop the way it has treated McCain and Obama, then we will have a very dangerous situation on our hands.

Well, i would like to say that i am in no way a fan of Janet Jackson's music. I would much rather listen to a Rolling Stones album. This documentary is like a must-see. Janet Jackson has given us a much better way to look at the problem of drug addiction. This documentary has given us the people that are close to Janet Jackson to talk about what is going on in their life. This documentary is also good for the people that are more of a "opinion" on the drug problem. This documentary is a must-see. I would recommend that people go out and see this documentary. If you haven't seen it yet, go out and see it. You won't be disappointed.

This movie is a MUST SEE for all of us. I cannot emphasize enough on how much I enjoyed this movie. The subject of this film is an important one. We need to take a stand against the sick and twisted. This film takes a stand against the greed and the hypocrisy of the rich and powerful. We must be very careful about the decisions we make in our personal lives. This movie does a great job of exposing the ugly side of this evil. I feel that the information in this film is very powerful. I recommend this film to all of my friends and family. If you are not ready to take a stand against the world of greed and the darkness of the rich and powerful, you probably will not like this movie. But I guarantee you that this movie will change your life. You will become more conscious of what you are giving away, and what you are giving away. If you are ready to make a stand against the darkness, this movie will make your life a much better place. This movie is an essential part of the fight against the darkness.

This movie was very well done. I'm very interested in the details of the people who were involved in this case. I learned that the family and friends of the victim are still mourning the loss of their daughter and sister. I also learned that the sister was still suffering from her husband's loss. I also learned that the family had no idea that the actual victim was still alive. I was very impressed with the acting of the director. He did a great job of keeping the movie moving. The cinematography was also very good. I really enjoyed this movie. It was very interesting and, I think, a very good documentary. I hope that the movie gets more attention because it's very important.

This film is a gem. It is truly remarkable. I could not get the words to describe how much I loved it. If you have never seen it, please do so. If you have seen it, watch it again. It will be a rewarding experience for you.

I'm sorry, but I just couldn't handle this. I mean, I know that they had the option of making the film a documentary or a fiction. It seemed like they chose the documentary route. The same could be said for the ending. I was so angry when the film ended. I can't believe they made this film and released it in theaters. It was one of the most horrible things I have ever seen. I'm going to go out and buy the DVD, but I'm sure they'll think twice before releasing it.

I am not sure if this is really a documentary or if it's supposed to be. What I know is that this is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It's all about Meryl Streep and it's about how she was wronged by the movie industry in general. There is some commentary from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences about how the Academy should have not nominated Meryl for the Oscar. Meryl Streep is nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress and she gets it, but she doesn't get the Oscar, it goes to Cate Blanchett for "Philomena". The documentary is about the power of the film industry and how it can shape people's lives. It does this through interviews with many of the people in the industry, actors, directors, producers, and writers. Meryl also interviews the actors and writers who said Meryl should have won the Oscar, but it was not because of her work. Meryl's acting is phenomenal, but she should have won for this role. It's a great documentary and Meryl deserves all the awards she gets. 10/10

A tribute to a man that has influenced so many people in my life. His life's work and his legacy will be remembered forever. Although this film has a negative political tone it is balanced with many good points. I do not feel that this film is biased towards the Republican party, but it is not very positive either. It is a very poignant and tragic story of a man who never felt able to do what he wanted, he just felt like he could not make a difference. His legacy will live on forever. I hope his legacy will also be a lesson for us all. Thanks George W. Bush.

I thought this movie was incredibly well done. There were times when I was thinking "Whoa!" I didn't understand the full scope of the whole story until I saw the credits. The film was so detailed that I almost felt like I was there. The focus of the movie is the story, but the style and style of the interviews kept me very interested. The actors really pulled the audience into the story and the interviews were very revealing of their personal stories. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a story and wants to learn a little about a subject that isn't typically talked about. I felt like I had a sense of history and a sense of how a culture has been shaped by a story. I hope to see more from Dan Wilkerson.

This is a really good documentary. I loved it. It was very inspiring to me. It's not just about drugs, it's about the whole life of an addict. It is also about the justice system, and the consequences of that system, and how it can be abused. It shows how the drug dealers can be right in the middle of the justice system, and that's the point where we have to look at what we're doing and not what we're saying. We should really get some kind of help. And I'm also interested in the doctor, Dr. Bob, who I think is a good guy. He did some research and showed how the system is wrong. And the police are wrong too. The system is not working. It's not helping people, it's not helping addicts. We're all in it together. I'm glad this documentary was made. I'm also glad that this documentary was released. I think it's very important. I hope it's seen by more people, and it will make a difference.

This film really changed my life. The film touched me, it was a whole new perspective of things. My wife thought it was good but I thought it was amazing. It gave me a different perspective of things and helped me to realize what I'm doing in my life is bad. I think people are getting a little too hard on this one but I think it's a good film to show how horrible we can be to each other. This film really got me thinking and thinking about what I was doing in my life and how much worse I can go. I felt like I was in prison for about 6 months and now I'm out. It really helped me get a better outlook on life and it also helped me to feel more relaxed in my life. The film is really good and I'm glad I watched it. I don't think anyone else would have seen it because the film is really quiet. I would recommend it to everyone.

I'm not sure where this documentary was filmed but I was so glad that it was. I found this documentary so touching. It was one of the most touching documentaries I have ever seen. The documentary goes into the story of the four women that were involved in the film, and how they had to deal with the events that happened after the movie came out. It tells the story of how the men in their lives were impacted by the events in the film. I don't know if this is something that is going to ever be made into a film but I hope that it is.

A great documentary that does not skimp on details. The cast is incredible, with some hilarious stories that make you laugh out loud. The stories are moving and at times touching. The director is really good at capturing the feelings of the subjects and the cast is amazing. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that this is a must see for anyone who wants to know about the women and men who have survived these atrocities. This documentary is the true story of 9/11 survivors, but it is a story of the human spirit that cannot be ignored or turned away. This documentary has so much depth and will leave you wanting to go to another documentary. This is a must see for anyone who is a true American.

I've been looking for this film for years. It was out of print for years, but I finally found it in a video store in London. It was a "must have" movie. I really wanted to see it. I love Jane and I love history. I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about the time period and culture. I'm not usually into documentaries. I've been getting into them in recent years, especially since I became interested in the film and its maker. So, I finally got around to seeing it. I'm so glad I did. It is beautifully filmed. The music is beautiful. It is well-made. And it is entertaining. The first time I saw it, I found it so moving that I had to rewind it to see what I missed. The second time I watched it, I still felt the same way. I loved it. I was moved to tears, and that was an amazing feeling. I was moved to tears because I am so aware of the history of this country. I am a historian, and I think that many people who saw this film did not understand what it was about. But that is not what the movie is about. It is about history, but it is also about love, and the things we cherish in our lives. I highly recommend this movie. I hope it is available on DVD.

This documentary should be seen by anyone who loves and cares about music. I will never understand the negativity surrounding this movie, it is one of the most beautiful, touching and inspirational movies I have ever seen. No other film will ever be able to capture the emotions that are on display in this film. The music of Jim Henson is the soundtrack of the heart. The magic that has been infused in these songs is mesmerizing. The story of the transformation of Jim Henson from the creator of "The Muppets" to the greatest living storyteller in the world is amazing. It is sad that many of the critics of this film have not seen the special features on the DVD, and they have just assumed that it is just a "baby commercial" which is inaccurate. It is a true masterpiece of art, and it is a sad irony that so many of the most critical critics of this film are the same ones that have attacked the wonderful documentaries "The Life of Brian" and "The Emperor's New Clothes". These two films will forever be with me and will be the basis of my interest in music. The music is the soundtrack of the heart.

This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. As a child, I was a bit of a cynic and had never seen a documentary that focused on the American experience in the mid-seventies. I was fortunate enough to have seen a few documentaries and was impressed with the way the British handled it. I was also interested in seeing a documentary about a young woman who had been pregnant with twins and was at the peak of her pregnancy when she was picked up by the police. I was totally intrigued. The police didn't want to take the twins and instead she was taken to a hospital where she was given drugs to suppress her pregnancy. She had been telling her story for many years. She had never told anyone. I was interested in the story because of the way the British handled it. She told the story to a few people, including me, and had a great experience. The director, Anna Power, made a film that was very different from the usual docu-dramas. She was very sensitive about the situation, but did not have a dogmatic view of the police. She allowed the film to play out without trying to make it a very "correct" view. I think that the film was a very important film. I have never seen anything like it. It made me more interested in women's rights in the U.S. and made me think about the situation in Britain. I will never forget the scene where the doctor had to convince the baby's father to let her go. She was very strong and stubborn. I also liked the documentary that showed how people felt about the police in Britain. I think that they were very different than the way they are today. The British police were really the heroes in this documentary. I think that the film was well done, but I think that there could have been a little more in it. I think that it was very interesting. The scene in the police station was very touching and I think that it would have been better if there had been a little more to it. But I think that there were some good points in the film and I would recommend it to everyone. It was very well done and I think that it was a very good film.

This movie is for all people who care about the impact of fossil fuels on our world. You can tell a lot about a person by their choices and decisions. This movie shows you how it is. It is a documentary on how we are destroying our planet and killing the life on it. This movie is so powerful and it will make you think about your life and your choices. I'm not a scientist but this movie really shows the impact of the fossil fuels on the planet and the effect it has on our planet. It is not only the impact on the environment and the climate but it is also the effect of oil on the environment and the climate. This movie is very strong and so is it will show you how much damage our world is suffering from the use of fossil fuels. This movie is for you if you care about the impact of fossil fuels on our world and the way we are destroying our world.

The year was 2001. The filmmakers were the victims of a series of cyber attacks by a person or persons unknown. They would only reveal the true identity of the person(s) responsible for the attacks when they were ready. The filmmakers were in the process of completing a documentary about an incident involving the U.S. government that occurred in the early 1980's. Unfortunately, the director was killed in a plane crash and the filmmakers were unable to finish the film. This documentary details the events that transpired. The film is not a documentary. There is no narration or narration at all. The filmmakers go about their task with the same professionalism that they would have in a documentary. The director, the reporter, and the editor were all young adults, the same age as the victim. The filmmakers were motivated by a desire to do something about the incident. There are moments of what appears to be some emotional scenes but I was not sure of that. The filmmakers seem to have gotten in touch with their inner child and enjoyed the process. They knew that they were embarking on a difficult and personal journey and the end result of that journey is a documentary. It was a documentary that I wanted to see. I also wanted to know the identity of the person responsible for the attacks. Unfortunately, they did not reveal that information to the filmmakers. I also wanted to see the incident described by the director as it occurred and I would have been very interested in that. This film is not perfect. The film would have been better if it was filmed in a way that the filmmakers would have known that they were making a documentary. There are scenes that could have been shortened or removed. In one scene, the filmmaker is told by the other person who witnessed the attack, that he saw the U.S. president, George W. Bush, in a plane flying to a private island in the Gulf of Mexico. This would have been very interesting to see the crash site and to hear what the filmmaker was able to gather from the other people who were in the area at the time. I would have liked to hear from the survivors of the plane crash about what they saw. It would have been an interesting insight into what had happened. However, these are minor issues. The film is a testament to the importance of an independent filmmaker. The filmmakers were driven by their passion for the project. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys documentaries. The documentary maker made a personal journey and that is what makes this film so worthwhile. I would also recommend this film to anyone who enjoys history or journalism.
