I really enjoyed this film. The cinematography was amazing and the sound mixing was superb. The editing was perfect and the story flowed perfectly. This is one of my favorite films. I can watch it over and over. I never tire of it.

This movie is definitely not for the weak of heart, it has a storyline that is difficult for most viewers to comprehend, but the intense story telling by the director make you feel a part of the film. I think the most difficult aspect of this movie is that I could not relate with it to one person. As a skeptic I found this movie to be very compelling, but I am not a believer of the 'I don't believe it' thing. I was entertained throughout the movie and very encouraged to 'take it for what it is' rather than trying to figure it out. I will be viewing this movie again and will make my own assessment. This movie is not for everyone, but is worth a watch. I rate this movie a 7/10

In this documentary, Steven E. McQueen, author of "Waking Life: Adventures in the Science of Sleep", tells us about his research into the science of sleep. He describes the work of Luis Alvarez as well as Dr. G.V. Molyneux, among others. What he describes as his own bizarre experiments seem to be the most bizarre things anyone has done for centuries. However, his testing of various sleep devices, most notably, the cocoon, seems to be more of a gimmick than a legitimate experiment. While the cocoon's success as a therapeutic treatment seems to be based on luck, it appears that the cocoon's purported effectiveness is more based on luck than on actual sleep research. Overall, it is a great movie. The best part is its way of showing the power of sleep and how it can be used to heal, or even restore, the mind.

When I first saw the DVD cover of "About A Boy" I was immediately intrigued by the looks of the film, but I was never given a chance to see it. I started to watch it though and I was intrigued. The movie focuses on the life of a young boy who lives in a small town in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The boy has some special needs, as he is on the spectrum of Asperger's Syndrome. But all in all, the boy works hard to fulfill his dream of becoming a man, and also helping others with his special needs. There is an aspect to the film that is used a lot, and that aspect is the boy's mother. She is very strong, and just being around her helps his mother feel better. This is very important to me, because I have had a similar type of situation. But the mother has been with me since I was a child, and I have been through a lot myself, so I have learned from her to appreciate the things that she does. Although it is a very common life for people with disabilities, this film does help you to see that the world isn't all sunshine and rainbows. It is hard to be a person with disabilities. And there are still many people who are afraid to embrace their disabilities. That is what this film is about. If you have a disability, I suggest you watch this film. If you have a friend or relative who has a disability, watch this film. It is for all of us.

Sometimes I wonder why the world needs a documentary so much. It is simply the simplest, most effective way to show what the world is like. But most of the time documentaries about the consequences of modern society do not go anywhere but to reveal its flaws. This documentary on addiction is no exception. It highlights the history of addiction to various things that have become a part of life in the U.S. over the past 100 years. It explains that while we are slowly falling into addiction we are not sure why. It is a confusing topic. But this documentary does not go into this question in the usual way. It looks at the psychology of the problem and how it is being dealt with by different people. Each person is given a position of authority and is asked to respond to various situations. It is interesting to see how many of these people are chosen to be in charge of an area they do not understand. The question that I ask myself is why these people are chosen to be in charge of these difficult problems? The answer to this question is that they are there to show people how to deal with their problems. The whole documentary is fascinating. The question of why the problem has been dealt with the way it has is not really addressed. And the psychological effects of this are presented in a very interesting way. The documentary points out that addiction is a social problem and that the problem is not really being dealt with in a simple way. If it were I would have liked it more. But I also believe that this documentary is not a waste of time. It does not pretend to explain the motives of the people involved. It just points out that there is a problem and does not ask the question of what the right way to deal with it should be. In other words, it is very informative but does not really try to explain anything. It simply shows what happens. And it makes the problem look easy. It does this because it is convincing to see what happens. So I give this documentary 7 out of 10 stars.

The film, "HIV/AIDS", is a very entertaining piece, so I can't quite call it a documentary. However, the film tells a very important story. It covers the rise of HIV and how it was eventually taken as a disease. It also shows how HIV affected the lives of people who were willing to change their lifestyle. I found the information presented in the film to be very well-done. I am a big fan of AIDS awareness and understanding, so I was very pleased that the filmmakers did a good job of portraying the problem in an accurate manner. The director does a good job in presenting the details of what was happening in the 1980's. Although some of the details that were given did not accurately reflect the reality in 1985, it was still very enlightening. I also liked the fact that the film does not assume that people who were already infected with HIV can change their life by changing their lifestyles. Instead, it shows how AIDS affected people who were willing to change their lifestyle and how the struggle to find and maintain their own healthcare became very difficult. I believe the film does an excellent job of showing the effects of HIV/AIDS and the increase in stigma around HIV/AIDS. I think that it is extremely important to show the problems of HIV/AIDS in a realistic manner and in a very entertaining manner. I believe that the film is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to learn more about AIDS. It is definitely worth watching.

Finally, a documentary to celebrate AIDS awareness and to help shape the debate around the issue. The documentary is held at a San Francisco venue that is far from the usual places for a film, having been re-purposed by the filmmakers for that purpose. In this respect, the documentary is about the not-so-private lives of several people who live in a different part of the country. People who are not exactly the norm, because they live life in ways that most people would not expect. A bit like being in the same room as a water jet, but without the water, and the usual worries. These individuals are confronted with the difficult decision of making this world a better place for themselves and their loved ones. But with a terrible fate to endure. Several people turn to alternative measures to deal with their fear and embarrassment. They go to therapy to help them learn to deal with their fear and the situation. Some become wary of things they previously took for granted, to seek out and learn about their old friends and family. Others take control of their own destinies, and their own lives. A very personal, and well done documentary. Some will argue that people have been "loose with health" for a long time, but we shouldn't use fear as an excuse to have no-one's health. Not everyone has AIDS. Some people don't have any. Others might have one, or even several. Many HIV positive people know their status, but do not know the exact number. This documentary lets the viewer know what it is like to have HIV and the effects it has on them, and it gives them the option of having no choice but to take a course of treatment. I felt that many of the people in this documentary were incredibly brave, and did not want the film to end. They all spoke about how important the documentary was. This documentary could have been edited and put together in a more logical way. I don't know how much of the film was kept private, but I know that this film is not just a documentary, but an important piece of American history that should be remembered.

In general, I would say that this is the best "documentary" about religion or religion in general. It does not have the agenda of the religious groups and yet at the same time does show the fundamentalists point of view. That is very rare. I'm glad that they took a stand to condemn this perversion of Christianity. They did it right in my opinion. Overall, this was a great film and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in religion.

I never got to see the original movie, but I still enjoyed this film. I was mostly interested in how they did the actors and their dialogue and how the directors handled their film. They did a great job of making the film interesting and unpredictable. It's funny and creepy. I don't think it's for kids, but it would be a good film for them to watch. It's good for the mind and not only for the eyes. I recommend it.

I was very excited to see this movie.I like Emily,and like most people I think that the movie was an excellent representation of the 80's and has many themes we can all identify with. I was worried that it might be a bit too one sided because she was a real woman and people tend to say,and I am sure you have heard, "you are projecting your emotions onto this movie." The movie does not advocate for her. It makes a good case that the teenage suicide epidemic in America is due to kids just not being taught the right things. It does make a case for the importance of avoiding drugs and alcohol. I could see this movie as an example of how to fight the epidemic, though.It is not perfect, but it is a good attempt to help the next generation.I think that the movie and the cause of suicide are very powerful.

This was a fantastic documentary. It is a very raw look at the struggles of homeless people, and is very informative. I felt that it was a better film than it had a right to be. However, it is very over dramatized at times. I did not feel that it was necessary to show every single emotional moment of each person. I felt it was necessary to show the hard times in detail to keep the viewer on their toes. The film did a good job at showing the true life story of one woman who went on to become a nurse. It was a very honest film, but at the end, I felt that it could have been made much more as it needed to be. The heart of this film was not too much over dramatized. It was a very accurate story of one individual. I would highly recommend this documentary to anyone.

An often refreshing change from the usual pro-abortion propaganda of the mainstream media. Here, we are allowed to see the actual feelings of the "pro-choice" women in the abortion clinic and their conflict with the doctors who are representing their pro-choice values. One woman discusses how it feels to be constantly groped by her "patients", and what it's like for her to be forced to listen to her patients talk about sex and contraception. Another discusses how hard it is to get her insurance coverage for the abortion procedures and contraception -and what it's like to be told she can't afford it. A mother tries to be more educated about her son's pro-life feelings - he is an "activist", he wants to start an "action group" that will support abortion rights and are heavily involved in the anti-choice movement. A woman talks about her son and the troubles with her marriage. Another woman talks about her son's relationship with his daughter. The director, who is a mother of a child who is now an adult, has an informative interview with the mother and son's mother - the mother's daughter is very articulate and articulate. She tells her story - the pain of not being able to have her daughter, who is now an adult, have the right to have an abortion, and how her daughter's doctor threatened to terminate her daughter's "virginity" if she didn't have the abortion. She tells her story of having to pretend to be a virgin for weeks and weeks. She is happy to see her daughter, but her daughter has found out and isn't too happy about it. She has found her own means of getting an abortion, and she does it with a friend. Her daughter is happy, too, and after watching the movie I felt bad for the mother, who probably has to deal with it every day. It's a really good movie. I recommend it to anyone who cares about the rights of women to choose what they do with their bodies.

The movie follows Dave Arne Duncan (composer of Disney's "The Lion King"), a man who sees a difference in his life when he sees animals giving birth to babies. Duncan started as a pilot with the Army, but his career went into a tailspin, and he turned to being a fixer for the very people he had made his career for. He then moved to the Midwest, where he was attacked by a cow. After being forced to stay with his foster family, Duncan takes in a baby, a human baby. Duncan meets the girl's parents and tries to teach her about love, and animals, while also trying to save the animal from a plane crash. Duncan, the animal lover, refuses to accept that the baby, he took in, is no longer a human baby. This movie could have been more realistic, if it wasn't for the sound of the plane crashing. With a crash that sounds like a hand grenade, it is hard to tell where the hell the child is. A lot of movies that deal with animal issues have high action and suspense, but this movie is just too grim to make you happy. The sound of the plane crashing is the only time that makes you feel anything at all. I am trying not to give this movie any more of a negative review than it already deserves. It is not even worth giving a 5/10.

This documentary is about Dr. Albert Schweitzer, the man that coined the term 'free health care' which included a U.S. government rebate system for medical care (an idea that later came to be known as Medicare). Dr. Schweitzer's work was done through the same system he was so inspired by. It's interesting that the movie compares the two men in the same place at the same time. It seems to me that the main point of the movie is how Schweitzer got funding to get his ideas out in the first place. I thought the movie was a good overview of a man whose ideas were inspired by the same system he helped to write the book about. I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in all the things that go into making a movie about a very influential and kind person.

It's a real shame that the majority of the people who get referred to here don't have the ability to comprehend, let alone appreciate, the complexity of how global food systems work, particularly when considering the food we do eat. In a sense, this is a work of fiction, but the director is kind enough to make sure the information presented here is valid. Yes, it's simple enough for a first time viewer to get what is happening, and I would encourage anyone to watch this and perhaps learn more about how the food system works in the world and what effect it has on humanity and the environment.

The history of the Holocaust is explored in this documentary by Rita Rubin, with additional details provided by Michael Deutsch, co-founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. The Nazis made a pact with the Jews to exterminate them. The US encouraged them to do it by permitting them to build camps in South America. The world leaders were either very ignorant or made deals with them. They simply didn't care. The last thing the world leaders should have done was tolerate the holocaust. There is a long list of other history lessons included in this film and much more information is provided at the website of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. I hope they become available for people to find on the Internet.

Very interesting, very fast-paced documentary film that builds up to an interesting closing. The pace of the film is much faster than the subject matter, which is the neurosurgeon whose neurosurgery surgery is sometimes more painful than the surgery itself. It is the story of some patients, where his treatment would be more painful than any of the patients' pain. I like the idea of focusing on the surgery itself, but the doctor is probably more important than the patient. This would make the subject a bit more accessible for a wider audience. This movie is definitely worth watching.

The film focuses on the biggest social problem of our time: drug addiction. It focuses on the battle between prohibition and the war on drugs, and it does a very good job of combining it with the war on terror. The greatest tragedy of all is that the battle is not going our way. The worst part of all is that some people have decided to fight it, and that these are the people who should be fighting it. I hope that when these people go to prison, the government will use this film as an example of what they should do when they are released. The government should have used this as an example of what they should do when they release people who have no moral or financial resources. When they are released, they should do whatever they need to do to keep the system going, no matter what the cost. These are people who have no capacity for good. When they get out, they should begin to do something about it, because the cost of it has already been paid. This film is a very good attempt to end the drug war.

Over-used arguments about the Holocaust have been put together in this film. Although you will find the Holocaust interesting, most of the people shown here are not that interesting to me. They don't come across as realistic or at least as interesting. I believe these people are either out of their depth or they don't think they are. They show no remorse for the Holocaust as they appear to have no understanding of how it took place, or that any man, woman or child could ever suffer the way it was endured. If you want to see how a horror movie is made then look elsewhere, but if you want to see how people who have suffered the Holocaust are shown, I would suggest starting with Michael Moore and finding some quality docudrama. By the way, this is not a bad film. It is a good, although not great, film, in which we get to see a group of human beings who have undergone a great deal of pain and trauma and their attempts to deal with it. It is not an easy film, but it does have great images and it does show the humanity of these people. I am not saying this is the ultimate documentary. It is far from it. I also feel that the film leaves out important details. We are never given any reason why these people should have survived and what they were doing when they had the idea of what they were going to do with the rest of their lives. But we do get to see the German Army marching through Poland and the scenes of Jews being shot. I do not blame the film for this. I believe it shows these people. They are being shown for the people that they were and that is all that matters. That is what it should be doing. But I think the film leaves out important details, particularly about the events that led up to the Holocaust. I understand that this film was made in the early 90's and that there is no new information to share. But I am sorry to say that the film leaves out the most important part of the Holocaust. The Jews were being bombed by the Germans as well as by the Russians and the French. They were being shot by the Nazis as well as by the Allies. I don't know what the Nazis would have done if they knew that the Jews were being put into gas chambers. I think they would have had a field day with this. But the film is still good. It shows the suffering of these people who are suffering as much as anyone else. It is a very good film. And I would recommend it. I am just trying to show that this is not a terrible film and is not the best of its kind. It is better than it could have been and shows the humanity of the people. I am just trying to show that this film does not include the Holocaust as it should have been presented and would have been better if there were not any facts included. I would have liked to have seen more information on the actions of the SS and the Nazi Party.

Despite the "Lifetime" (unseen?) ending, this is a solid documentary film. It takes a look at a small town of California in the mid-1970s. Many people lost their lives from heart attacks, suicides and accidents. It's an eye opening film. I was actually expecting this to be a depressing documentary about the effects of heart attacks and other health issues on the town, but was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. For one, the town actually seemed happy and cheerful. People seemed to be having a good time. It was refreshing to see a film about a small town that was so vibrant and vibrant. The other major theme of the film was about women's rights and what it's like to have to deal with these issues in a more than one way. I was able to see that women were often in control of their own lives. They could chose what to do, and the choices they made were good ones. It was refreshing to see a film that presented both the good and the bad points of women's rights. Some viewers may be surprised that there are actually two stories told in this film. I found the conclusion to be quite interesting and quite a few more facts were presented. For instance, the doctor in the film who is accused of having an affair with his patients' mother-in-law is actually a very well respected doctor in the town. He actually did his job very well, and was highly respected. In the end, he found that he was not working at the right time. I think it's important to make that distinction. Also, it's interesting to note that the doctor was the only one to actually do his job. Another interesting fact was that all of the deaths in the town were suicides. Again, that's not necessarily a bad thing because it means that the health care system works well. If people were all killed by a heart attack, that's not the best way to run the health care system. All in all, a good documentary film, that provides a good glimpse into what life was like for these women in the mid-1970s. I give it a 7 out of 10.
