I saw this movie at a screening last night, and I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the film was actually quite good. I don't usually like documentaries, but I found this movie to be fairly interesting. It is basically a very in depth look at the history of the film industry. The film has interviews with many of the major players in the industry, and it has plenty of interesting information. The main story is about the release of Citizen Jane, and how it was cut down to a 2 hour movie. The film is very informative, and it does not shy away from showing the negative aspects of the film, which is a shame, because it was an excellent film. I would recommend this film to anyone interested in the history of the film industry. I would also recommend that anyone who is a fan of the film industry watch this film.

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City is a documentary about the women who led the Women's Movement in the 60s. It chronicles the rise of the Women's Liberation Movement and the first major wave of women's suffrage. It includes interviews with some of the women who fought for the right to vote, who were beaten and raped by police officers, and who were imprisoned for their beliefs. It is a very moving documentary and I highly recommend it.

As a parent, I have often wondered what my child's generation would do in an emergency situation. In a time of extreme terrorism and other threats, I have wondered whether our generation would be prepared to make decisions and respond in a timely manner. We are trained to fight and survive, but our skills and knowledge are not always what we need to respond in an emergency situation. I found the film "Citizen Jane" to be an excellent and thought provoking film about the importance of keeping your child safe and how a parent should be prepared to make decisions that will make their child safe in a time of crisis. The film does a great job of showing the importance of preparation, but also the importance of a parent being prepared to make decisions that will help their child survive. It is a very powerful film that can be very motivating for parents. I highly recommend that parents watch this film.

This is the second documentary I've seen about the history of the federal government and the history of women in it. The first documentary I saw was "The Trenches" by Tom Bevans, which was about women and the Civil War. This documentary is about women and the United States government. It's an interesting look at how the women were treated in the US government. I think the best part of the documentary is the discussion of the "underground" movement that was going on during the first half of the 20th century. The women were fighting for their rights, but were also fighting for their rights to vote, to have a voice in government, and to have a seat at the table in the government. That underground movement was a powerful force for women and women's rights. If you want to know more about the history of the women's rights movement, I highly recommend watching "The Trenches."

I agree with the previous reviewer who said that this is not a documentary but a documentary of a documentary. I agree that the director did not have the best of intentions and the film is slow at times but I liked the overall message and the film is a must see for anyone who has ever worked in a city council office. The first 45 minutes is a great introduction to what makes a city council office tick and I think that is what makes the film so great. It shows you that working on a council office can be fun but it also teaches you how to handle conflicts with your fellow council members. It also shows how city employees behave and interact with one another. The filming was amazing, the editing was superb and I was totally surprised by the quality of the film. I can't wait for the DVD release so I can watch it over and over again. I would give this a 10 out of 10 because I really enjoyed the film and would recommend it to anyone. I give it a 9 out of 10 because I think it is a bit long but I will have to see how the director does it next time. I also liked the fact that there were no highlights. I was very impressed with the editing and I think that the director did a great job of getting the film to the point.

I was a bit skeptical about this documentary after watching the trailer. It seemed like the "confession" from the mayor was very strange. But I thought it was good and very insightful. It's definitely worth watching and you will get to know more about the mayor and the relationship between him and the people of the city.

As a Brit, I was surprised by this film. I had heard that it was anti-war and anti-US, but I was not expecting it to be this much. It really gets into the heads of the people involved and gives you a sense of what it must have been like for them to be in a position where they had to make decisions on behalf of the country. It's a very well made film, with excellent music and some very moving moments. I also found the film to be very informative and informative at the same time. It's not just about the war, but about the people involved. It's a really moving and emotional film, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has not seen it. It's well worth seeing.

I saw this film when it first came out in theaters. It was an incredibly moving film, with some very touching moments. I saw this film in a theater with only a few people in the audience. I was surprised at how many people came out of the film to say that they had never known that they could support the film. It was the kind of film that a film student would want to see. I thought that it was a great film, and I would recommend it to anyone. It is a film that has a lot of powerful messages and could be used by anyone. I think that it is one of the most important films of the year, and it is a very important film that should be seen by everyone.

I didn't know what to expect going into this film, and I was pleasantly surprised. It's a documentary about the life of a woman who was a young woman in the 1940s and early 1950s and is now a woman in her 70s. She has a heart of gold and is a very, very funny woman. She talks about the battles of her youth and how she was a big supporter of the women's movement. She talks about her childhood, her husband, her kids, her daughter, her sister, her brother. I loved every minute of this documentary. I have a feeling that most people who watch this film will also have a great sense of history. There are so many things about this film that I like and that are also well documented. The film was so well done that I was glad that I was able to sit down and watch it. I loved this film and I hope that you will too. This is a must see.

I am a fan of the classic movies of the 70's, but I am not a huge fan of the American remake of the classic "Spartacus". I really enjoyed this movie, and I am glad I saw it, even though it is not a "Spartacus" movie. The film is about a reporter named "Jane Fonda", who is a part of the "Spartacus" documentary crew, and she and her husband are going to go to the "Spartacus" premiere of a documentary about the slave trade. They are going to take a boat ride with the slave traders. The slave traders are angry that they are not going to see the movie, and they want to kill them. However, Jane Fonda and her husband are not going to kill them. They are going to save the slave traders, and they will not kill them. I really liked this film, and I will recommend it to anyone who likes the classic "Spartacus" movies. I really enjoyed this movie, and I think everyone should watch it. I think that if you are a fan of the classic "Spartacus" movies, you will really like this movie.

I loved this documentary, because it is so well-done. It is a very long documentary, but it is very well-made. It is a bit sad that we are seeing more and more documentaries that are made for the purpose of attacking the current government. I can't remember the last time I saw a documentary that was so objective about a specific government, and the most objective documentary I have seen was "The Search for Osama Bin Laden". I think the documentary is a great resource for those who wish to learn more about the people who are currently in power. It is very well-made and I highly recommend it.

I have never been a huge fan of Angela Davis. She is one of the most hated and vilified of all feminists in our society. I saw her documentary on the Discovery Channel in 1999, and I was very impressed. I liked it so much, that I decided to get the DVD and watch it again. And I was very disappointed. I have to say that the film is very interesting, and if you really want to learn about feminism and the suffragettes, this documentary is a must. But the one thing that really annoyed me about this documentary is the fact that it shows all of the suffragettes as white, and only one black woman, Mrs. Elton (Anna Paquin). If you are a white person, you would never see a black woman, or a black man, in a documentary. I thought it was very racist, and not just because of the fact that Mrs. Elton is black. It was also racist because the documentary showed the black women as some kind of heroes, and the suffragettes as some kind of inferior people. It is a very racist documentary, and not to mention that it is racist. However, I still think that this documentary is very interesting, and I think that it is worth watching. It is a very important documentary, and you should definitely see it.

This documentary is very well done and very well researched. It shows the struggles and difficulties that people face in getting involved in an election. I think the movie should be watched by everyone and anyone who wants to learn about the history of this country. It is an inspiring story about what a woman has to go through to be an American citizen. I think the movie could have been a little bit longer, but I still think it was worth the watch.

A well-rounded documentary, this documentary takes a look at a series of battles in Chicago that took place between the 1800's and the 1920's. The documentary follows the movements of the politicians and the citizens in the city and their motivations. This documentary gives a good insight into the politics of the time. It is not a political documentary, it is more of an historical documentary. The documentary is a bit overlong, but it is well worth watching.
