I only saw this film last week on the Sci-Fi channel and I loved it. The movie has a very good message about how to deal with conflict in the modern world. The story is a bit slow and at times boring but overall I really liked it. The ending left me quite cold, but I don't think that's the point. The film is very good and I will watch it again. I recommend it to people who want a good message about global warming. 9/10.

This is a documentary film that attempts to give a small perspective on the human tragedy of war. It is a very important film, and one that should be seen by people who will not easily accept this type of subject matter. I am not sure if the reason why this film has a low rating on the IMDb is because people are afraid to go into this film, and it is being praised for having the message that is not easily understood. The story of two young Americans who went into Afghanistan and didn't return is a story that has been told many times before, but is still a compelling story that needs to be told. I think the best way to explain this is to let the audience into the country. What do you think? It's pretty depressing to think that some of the most brutal violence that can be experienced by an American citizen can be witnessed by a child. I guess the one thing that I really loved about the movie is that you get to see how the children from the US went through what they went through. It was interesting to see how they became so attached to their mother, and how the child did everything they could to try to find a way to be with her. I loved the way that the mother told her husband that she wanted to send her son to college and make it his only goal in life, but the husband was not willing to accept that. It was also interesting to see how the family also fought for their freedom, but it was not an easy battle. We also learn that the family lost their son in a firefight, and we see the family deal with that loss in a very intimate manner. All in all, I think this is a powerful film, and I would highly recommend it to any viewer.

This film is a remarkable feat in human history. Some film makers have the talent to convey a film's important message with a few frames of film. Michael Moore is one of these. I am sorry to say that it does not seem to be in his films. I understand that Mr Moore wanted to be a filmmaker, but he is not. He has the talent to be a film director, but not the talent. His films, some of which I like, are only touching about his view of human nature. His films are about nothing. It is true that there are good stories in them, but they are not about what Moore wants to convey. They are about things that Mr Moore does not know. I hope Mr Moore will get the better of himself and learn to direct some real films.

I think this movie is absolutely brilliant! The "Road" movie to me is the best because it really shows the hardships of WWII. It shows the horrible conditions soldiers were put into and what they had to go through just to survive. I would recommend this movie to anyone who really appreciates a good history lesson. It is a great movie to see because it shows the true horror of war.

There is a crucial point in the film that many will miss, and that is how to properly place oneself within this catastrophic event. We are all American, and are in some way or another not responsible for what happened. We are not very informed about what happened. However, one person on the Titanic wrote that the reason that they didn't think anyone was on the boat was because they all knew they were on the ship. The problem is that one person can never be responsible for a tragedy of that magnitude. One person can't be blamed for everything that happens. And that is where it is important to place oneself in the situation of the Titanic and the people who were on the Titanic. The rest of the film is about the way that we all feel about it, and the more you know about it, the more you will like it. To get to that point, the film uses a lot of different angles and footage to get the point across, all in a way that most people won't understand. One of the best parts of the film is the way that they showed the horror of the situation, but also the horror of being a part of it. The fact that we are not part of this and have no idea what was happening was a major point in the film, as it was the fact that we were not in the boat that caused the disaster. We were all just a part of it, and we were all responsible for it. This is also shown in the way that it was important that the whole incident was filmed by the one person who was on the boat, not by the crew who worked on the ship. That was the one person who captured the horror of what was happening. It is also the point in the film when they showed the fact that everyone knew it was a "rogue" ship. It was known that the ship was unsafe, but it was very easy for people to say that it was just another storm. All that was necessary to convey the message that "this isn't something that we will be able to fix."

It was a sad day to lose an interesting, a great film, and a great human story. And it's just too bad that it would have to be with such an atrocious film.

I can't say much about this film. It is the first time I've seen it and I don't think it would be possible to find it, like most things that are interesting to me. I guess the best way to describe the film would be like a collage of scenes and ideas which I've learned from 'Life on Mars.' It's like a mosaic of the most intriguing images from the film and I think I'm going to look at the images a few times each day for the rest of my life. It's a fascinating journey of a writer and an artist who have gone to space on the most dangerous mission ever conceived, but who have had to deal with all kinds of things they don't understand, who have met with some of the most dangerous people on the face of the earth, who've experienced the extreme extremes of life on the planet, and who've been thrown into the biggest adventure and they have to live through the same difficulties that they've already been through. It is not a documentary, but it has a documentary feel to it. If you like the movie, or if you just want to see what the people involved in this project have been through, it's definitely worth the money. I haven't been this surprised by a film in a long time. Thank you.

In late-90s/early-00s Iraq and Afghanistan I served in a unit in the U.S. Marine Corps tasked with keeping track of insurgents. We were to form up and run on the radio, alert the local commanders, then radio back home. Because we were small-unit commanders, we were expected to have a great deal of authority over the military. This in itself is the greatest task a U.S. soldier can take on. This in turn means that we are in charge of making sure our commander is able to do his job. There are several rules we follow: Don't listen to anything you don't know, don't talk to anyone who can't talk to you, follow your chain of command, and even "speak English" if you don't know what that is. For those who have never served, one of the most important things you need to know is to listen to the commanding officer when he/she gives the order. In my unit, I knew that once we got to the base, the team commander would tell us to find the enemy snipers and shoot them dead. If we found them, the soldiers would be going back to the base for further instruction. Once we got back to the base, I would instruct the soldiers to go back and get the sniper operators. Once they were ready to go, I would instruct the commanders to go back and get the soldiers. If you want to do this, you need to make sure that the commander is in charge and that all the soldiers know what they are doing and are trained to do it. What I like about this movie is that I saw it on the internet so I can't even find it online. I'm sure if I watched it online I could find it and watch it again. I'm glad I saw this movie because it has many good things to teach me about what it means to be a military man. I have a friend who is a Marine and is a sniper. I see that he has told some of his team about his experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. He says that the soldiers who were not in combat were the ones who were the most traumatized. He says the soldiers were afraid of dying and that the first few months after returning were not easy. The soldiers were sometimes very emotional. One guy was really sad that his unit was leaving. I think what makes the movie good is that he said that he was looking forward to his first deployment. That's what the movie is really about. You have to take your mission seriously, even when you have a lot of other things going on. When you come back, the soldier should be able to start doing things like running his unit again. He should be able to take on new responsibilities and be able to follow the command of the unit without having to be the same person he was. That is what the movie is really about. If you haven't served, don't watch this movie. It's a good movie and it should be seen by anyone who wants to know what it means to be a military man.

This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. The work is completely above board. The movie gives an accurate depiction of what the Iranian army is like and what the U.S. government has been doing to help them. The movie is a must see and shows a lot of what is going on in Iran. It makes you question what you think you know about the Middle East and what you think the world needs to know about the region. The movie does a very good job of showing the Iranian army as a unified entity. It shows the ability of the Iranian army to move around the country and that it is not like a group of bands of rebels and is a cohesive unit. It shows that the U.S. government has been manipulating the media to show that Iran is a horrible country and the Iranians are horrible people. There are people in the media that seem to think that they can sell it to the American public. I don't understand why the U.S. would do such a thing. It is my opinion that the U.S. has been wrong about the Iranians. They have been wrong about Saddam Hussein, and they are wrong about the people of Iran. The U.S. has been wrong about the Iranians and it is my opinion that Iran is the one that has the ability to take America down. The people of Iran have the ability to take America down. We can look to history for a few examples of how it might be possible. One of the best films I have seen this year was "Citizenfour." I was very impressed with that film because it showed the nature of the problem, it gave you an honest look at the situation and gave you an opportunity to think about what you would do if that situation were to occur. I hope people will see this film and get a little more information than they thought they would. This film is a must see and is very important. It shows the war going on in Iran and the people that are being held by the Iranian army.

I was a bit skeptical about watching this movie because I felt that I had already seen the "truth" of the events surrounding the attacks, and that these war films like this were simply glorifying the actions and actions of the soldiers and these men did not even have a chance to prove their story. After watching the movie, I felt that I had learned more. This movie was very well done and it tells the truth of what the soldiers were trying to do, and what happened. This movie has shown the real experience of these soldiers. I think that the movie is important for the way that it portrays the events surrounding the attacks. The images are quite shocking and also shocking because of the truth of what was shown. The emotions of these soldiers were captured by the camera, the emotions of the other soldiers were captured in the way that they acted, and the emotions of the cameraman were captured by the sound of the shots, and the emotion of the other cameraman were captured by the reactions of the other soldiers. I feel that this movie has a very important message that many people will not see and that is that these actions are not justified, and that the soldiers who took part in the attack were guilty of their actions, that they were violent, and that they were inhumane. This movie can also show the truth of why these things happened, why the two towers were attacked, and why it was necessary to destroy the building, and it also show the type of damage that it did to the people who lived in the area. I hope that you will watch this movie, because it is very good.

I can't believe I didn't see this movie before. I was surprised at how devastating the war had been for the Iraqi people and what the United States had done to them. I am not a United States citizen and I only recently got to know the true facts about the war. I am shocked at how much worse the war was than the people who were there. I'm sorry, but the government and the military lied to the public. I can't believe that our government had so many friends in the Arab world when we are helping them take over the world. I think that the government should apologize to the people of Iraq and to the people of Afghanistan because there were people there who needed to hear the truth. This movie does a good job of showing the truth and letting people know what is happening. I recommend it to people of all ages, I can't think of anyone under the age of 13 who wouldn't like this movie. Everyone should see it.

This is a good documentary on the mission to save the only American POW's of the Vietnam War. The film is very well made, and the interviews with several POW's were very good. The movie also makes a very good point about the propaganda of the American government during the war, that made the United States look to be a great nation in the world. However, some of the interviews are a little hard to follow, but that does not make it a bad documentary.

One of the most disturbing documentaries I've ever seen about a war crime. Also, one of the most disturbing war crimes and the most disturbing people who have spoken out against them. The film is about how a group of soldiers and their families were forced to participate in the second half of the Second World War and after the war. Many of the interviews are extremely disturbing and some of them are very graphic, and yet they're not there for shock value. They're there for the purpose of educating, because in most of the interviews, the narrator does not like the people involved and the soldier's families. So, the interviewees are forced to speak out against the war and they're forced to confront the horrors that they suffered at the hands of the German soldiers. If you don't want to watch this film, don't. If you do watch it, try to see it in a theater. The movie is very graphic and disturbing, and it's probably the most shocking and disturbing war crime documentary I've ever seen.

It's true, you can argue this movie was made as a joke, but we have to have a movie to make us laugh. I did watch it for a long time, in order to laugh. If you don't laugh, you might as well watch a movie, or not watch a movie, it's your decision. I think it's a great movie, the only problem is it's not that funny. I think it's very well made. The acting is very well done, and the director and writer also did a very good job, the movie is well made, and I recommend you see it. It's definitely a good movie. I mean, the only thing it is not is funny. I'm sure that the movie is rated very high, and I'm sure the critics will love it, but it's not that funny. If you don't like it, or you don't find it funny, you don't have to watch it, don't waste your time, don't feel bad, and please do not be a critic, just go see a movie like that one!

I have always loved the "world war II drama" genre and this is a really good example of a similar kind of film. It tells the story of a Japanese pilot who decides to abandon his plane, fly to England, and take the only plane available to him. This film is very interesting because it's very intelligent. It's not just a war movie, although it's a bit war-like, but it also tells a story of a person who tries to make sense of his life and his fate. It's not a film for everybody, but it's a really good film and the most of people will love it. There's no real hero or heroines in the film, but the characters are very well developed, the plot is very smart, and the acting is very good. This is definitely a film that should be seen.

I just got back from seeing this film. It is an absolutely wonderful piece of art. I loved every second of it. I was reminded of my childhood through this. It is something I remember all my life. The end was very touching. I was very touched by this film and so was the entire audience. I'm not sure what it was but I felt an emotional connection to all the people in the theater. It is truly one of the greatest pieces of art I have ever seen. I can't wait to see it again. I hope you don't take it seriously. The whole idea behind this film is brilliant. Just sit back, watch and enjoy.

I read this book a while back and thought it was amazing. I have since seen the movie and loved it. After reading the book, I decided to check out the movie as well. Well, it's good. Maybe not great, but it's good. I thought the acting was good, the movie itself was good, and the story was pretty good. There are a few things in this movie that could have been better, but overall, I thought this movie was worth seeing.

I'm sitting here in the history department of a university trying to come up with something to say about this film, which is so awesome, so inspirational, so well put together. For me, it's the perfect balance between documentary and fiction. As the student interviewed says in the beginning, it's not like the film is based on history, it's based on the experiences of people who, to a degree, weren't able to access history due to war and suffering. The incredible documentary and editing technique, coupled with the amazing music and lyrics, helps to bring out the genuine human feelings and beliefs of the narrator. I think that this is a very powerful film that will only take the viewer so far. But, I give the filmmakers kudos for having the courage to go and make this film. It's also a rare example of a film that was made without the producer, without the director, without a single star attached to the title. As the interviewer says at the beginning, 'this is not a movie about Palestine. This is a movie about the people who lived and died there, about their struggles and how they suffered and how they overcame.' This is a documentary about people, and this is a documentary that can inspire anyone to think about things that are beyond the reach of all of us.

It is very easy to see why the picture was nominated for an Oscar for best documentary feature, the strength of the story and how it was done. It's one of those movies that comes along once in a while that makes you think about what we are doing and how we are doing it. It reminded me of how it was done before, in my opinion. That is why it got me thinking.

First off, I'd like to say that I love documentaries and I'm always a sucker for that. I loved this film. I was involved in making it. It's all just so heartwarming and powerful. I don't have any complaints about it. I can't say I wasn't happy to have been part of it. I'm not even a major political or military type of person, but I really feel that the film touches on these important issues. It touches on things that you and I know are really important, but most of us don't know. Like wars and politics and death and destruction. It's a must-see for everyone, as a sure-fire little education. It's also a great film to make your friends watch, as a way to remember what life is really like. It's such a great lesson in human nature and what we're all really made of. The other thing I'd like to say is that I really enjoyed the music. I've got a lot of it. It's just a great soundtrack for the film. It's got a really cool, dark and powerful sound. I liked that. It also has the really sad, depressing lyrics. It really brought me back to the time in my life when I was just about to start my whole life over and all the people that were just kinda there. I'm glad I did watch this film. It was very well done. I really hope that people appreciate it and that there are more movies like this to come out. I really hope this is the beginning of more great films like this. It's really powerful. Definitely see this movie. You should. It's really important.

A nice story of how some brave people of a war torn city find a way to survive. Amazing to see how the young boys and men fought on, without the help of their fathers, or the mothers, or the men, or the mothers. Thank you, David, for putting your life out there and showing us how brave men and women can be in the world of war and all of its evils. Great film. 10/10

One of the most thoughtful, considerate documentaries I've ever seen. This is a must see film for all who are interested in the history of the Middle East. I was absolutely moved by it. If you are not a historian and have never heard of the conflict that has characterized the region for the past 2 decades, I think this film will be enlightening. I also think that if you are a historian, you will be able to grasp the historical perspective of this film. It does not try to be too 'smart' or 'deep', but it is a very clever film about the larger context of the region. A very good film.

I had heard a lot about this movie, but I never got to see it. A lot of people were unhappy with the ending, and I was very upset when I saw the ending. I would highly recommend seeing it, but I still don't understand why everyone has been so mad at it. If you're going to see it, I highly recommend that you see it in IMAX. I didn't even know this was possible until I saw the movie. But I'll tell you, this movie is so much more powerful than it seems at first. I have never been to Iraq, but I have seen a lot of things in my lifetime that I have to wonder about. If you have been to Iraq, you have seen things that are very real and have taken part in what I believe to be a war that we have done nothing to help. I think this movie was more powerful than what most people are saying about it. It's a good movie, but it's not for everyone. Just be aware of what you're seeing, and understand that it's not really like what you've seen. If you're in a hurry to see it, I recommend it, but I'm going to wait until it comes out on DVD to see it.

This is an inspirational documentary about two war veterans from Afghanistan, one German and one American. The filmmaker spent three years documenting the life of the two men who risked their lives to come to America in order to be able to recover their memories and make a better life for their families back in their homeland. They were once normal middle class people in the country, but now they are faced with one of the most traumatic experiences in their lives. The Germans soldier has PTSD, a debilitating brain disorder caused by combat. The American has a mental disorder that results from his experience in the war, where he was exposed to constant, hostile American soldiers. Their story and their lives are both sad and uplifting. This film is extremely well-made and very emotional, and is certainly a must see for anyone who has ever experienced this kind of trauma. The characters are very real and you find yourself deeply caring about their personal lives and the consequences of their experiences. This is a fantastic film, and one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.
