Having grown up with the old style of film, I was particularly curious to see the film that David Cronenberg and his team had made, and it was a relief to see that it was at least a great film, as opposed to the mediocre ones that have been in the past. The film was made in 2001, but it shows the true "rise and fall" of a great film in the 1980s. In addition, I also noticed that the film was a little shorter than it should have been, as the film was actually about 80 minutes long, but the editing was not consistent throughout. However, the editing was a good decision and it allowed the film to be more consistent. This was also a great benefit to the film as it allowed the audience to see the story in a different way than they had seen it before. The story was also very well done, and the cinematography was beautiful. The film was also very well made, and the performances were all very good. However, the film was a little slow at times and was not as well made as I would have liked it to be. However, I still recommend this film to anyone who has a great love for cinema.

The director of this film, Jeff Winter, does a good job at keeping the viewer interested in the documentary and the various people and institutions that were involved in it. I was very impressed by the people that were interviewed. It is a great film to see.

This is a great documentary. As a student of film and sound, I was impressed with the amount of work that was put into this. I enjoyed the film and I would recommend it to anyone interested in film or sound.

I recently saw a preview screening of "The Sound of Music" at a festival and I was blown away. I went to see this film on the strength of the posters, but I was more impressed with the film itself. The acting is superb, the direction is sharp and the editing is at the same time playful and breathtaking. This film has a lot to offer, but it doesn't let itself down. I'd say it's worth seeing if you're a fan of musicals and you like the idea of a movie that goes back to the roots of film making. This is a very personal film and I would recommend watching it before you read my review. If you enjoy films that go back to the roots of film making and aren't afraid to go back and look at what you loved in films of the past, you'll love this film. 7.5/10

If you have seen "Swingers", "Thelma & Louise", "The Way of the Gun" and "The Firm", then you have seen the art of sound in movies. "Waves" is a documentary about sound design in movies, in particular. This is the second of a three-part series about sound design in movies, and it is an excellent documentary. It tells the story of the sound design process, and how movies are designed to create a sense of atmosphere and a feeling of reality. I was especially impressed by the documentary's use of interviews with many people involved in the film's production. In particular, I liked the way that the filmmakers were able to get all of the people involved with making this movie to talk about their work. I think that is very valuable, because you can tell that all of them have a great deal of respect for what they do. Another thing that impressed me about the documentary is that they made it all look so easy, and the people involved in making movies don't seem like the people you would expect to work on a project like this. I think that that is a great asset, because it makes the movie seem like a documentary, and not like a movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves movies, and especially to anyone who loves movies that are good. "Waves" is a must-see.

This is a good documentary, focusing on the "art of sound" - specifically the sound used in motion picture soundtracks. Although there are lots of other sound artists that are just as good as John Williams, the film doesn't take a side - which is a nice touch. But it does point out the obvious, which is that the best soundtracks are made by those who don't have a big budget. The director even notes that, at one point, John Williams was offered a small amount of money to produce a score for the movie "Blade Runner". The film is actually quite entertaining. I recommend it.

The documentary takes a look at the history of sound editing, the mechanics behind it, the tricks and techniques used in making films sound great, and the people who are involved in the process. It is a good look into the world of editing and how it has evolved over the years, and it shows how it was very important for the film-makers to bring in the technicians who were involved in the process. There are a lot of interviews with people involved in the field of editing and sound, and the film has a great look at the history of the art form, and the people who were involved in it. It is a very good look into the world of editing and sound, and it is definitely worth watching.

I watched this film on DVD. It is a good film. The cinematography is great and the actors are excellent. The problem is that there is a lot of political talk. It was so much so that I had to fast forward through it. I think the DVD should have a separate section for the political talk. It could have been a better film. This is a great film. I would recommend it to anyone.

A very interesting documentary about how the music industry is changing. It's interesting to see how this new generation of directors and producers are taking this technology and making it their own. The interviews with various people from the music industry are really interesting and they give a good sense of the new technology. I'm not sure if I would like the film more than a few times but I think it's definitely worth watching.

The director of the International Association of Sound Engineers (IASE) documentary (which is available on DVD) does an excellent job of portraying the art of sound in the entertainment industry. This is an educational documentary for those who have not seen this, as well as for those who have seen it and enjoyed it. There is a lot of good information about sound, and of course, it is very entertaining. The documentary is also well written, which makes it easy to follow. As an added bonus, there are a number of interviews with directors, actors, producers, technicians, and other "expert" actors. There is a very good amount of sound clips from film and television productions. One could see some of the "real" sound of the film. In addition, the film has an informative section at the beginning of the documentary, which explains what the documentary is about. If you are interested in this subject, I would recommend that you check it out. The DVD is a very good value.

I watched this film as part of the The Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound festival, in conjunction with the Cannes Film Festival. I was excited to see this documentary, as it was at the forefront of a lot of new documentary-making in the last few years. As a student of cinema, I am always interested in how documentaries are made. I am not a fan of the subject of the film, but I am more interested in the documentary-makers. The documentary is just as interesting and interesting to me as the director's commentary, which I found fascinating. I enjoyed seeing the documentary-makers in a different light, as they explained their ideas and motivations. I also found the discussion about the documentary interesting. The film is a great introduction to documentary-making, as it provides information about all aspects of the making of the film, and the process of filming it. This documentary is definitely worth watching.

I've watched this film in two different places, and while it is not a "must-see" film, it is still worth watching. What makes this film so special is that it's the first film I've ever seen that examines the movie sound process, and the technical aspects of movie sound. This film also does a great job of describing how sound is used in a movie, and how it is produced. The only reason I don't give it a 10 is that it is more focused on the technical aspects of movie sound than on the subjects of movie sound itself. However, it's a great film that I hope everyone will watch.

I read a few of the reviews here, and the one I liked was that the story was very compelling. I agree with that. But then I realized that the story is pretty thin, and there is no connection between the two main characters. The two main characters are both very much in love with each other, but they have no reason to be in love. The main character is a successful woman, but she has no reason to be in love with this guy. I also didn't really get the connection between the two main characters. If I had been a rich man, and I wanted a rich girl, I would have been very open to such a relationship. But, I am not a rich man. I'm not a successful man, and I don't want to be. So, I don't know why the two main characters were in love with each other. And that's the only thing I can really connect with. If you're a guy, and you want a rich girl, go ahead, but don't make a huge deal about it. If you are a guy, and you want a rich girl, don't make a big deal about it. I think the movie is a good way to learn about the history of cinematography, but I don't think that's the main point of the movie.

I first saw this documentary in the theatre, and I loved it. It was informative, well shot, and thought provoking. I went to see it again last week at the local movie theater, and I was so pleased with the quality of the film that I went out and bought it. It is truly a must see. I think it would be a good idea to get the documentary on DVD. It is a must see for anyone who likes to think about how we use sound in movies. I think it is a good idea to re-release the film on DVD. I would like to see it on DVD with the audio commentary added. This is a very interesting and well done documentary. I highly recommend it.

I don't want to say much about the movie, since it is really not much of a movie. So I will just say that the movie is about the creation of sound in cinema. As a filmmaker myself, I can understand the difficulties involved in this process, which is why I believe that the movie was so much better than I expected it to be. The way the movie was shot, the way the movie was edited, the way the actors were used, and the way the actors were used, were all extremely successful. The movie was shot with a great care, the sound was used to its best effect, and the story was told to the best of it's ability. The movie really showed the lengths that some of the studios will go to to make a movie, and the amount of money that they spend to get a movie made. All in all, I would definitely recommend this movie to any film student or anyone who has ever worked in a movie studio.

I didn't know much about film sound at the time I watched this documentary, but I'm glad I did. It was interesting to see the artists and the filmmakers interviewed and the sound effects used. The concept was good, and it was interesting to see how different people in the film industry thought of sound effects. Some of the technical aspects of sound effects were very well explained. There was no "saying it was done" or "it was done well" that was found in other documentaries on the subject. There were many people who were involved in the film sound, so it was good to hear from people who were involved in the film sound, but the interviews were mostly from the "people who work with sound" and I don't think there was a single person interviewed who was involved in sound design or sound effects. The stories were also interesting, but I think it would have been better if the interviews were a little more in depth. Overall, I would recommend this film to anyone interested in sound effects or film sound.

A documentary that seems to have been filmed by the crew of the 1974 film 'In The Company Of Men', this documentary is about the state of cinematographic sound at the time. This documentary covers a number of topics, and gives a little insight into what was happening at the time. Most of the discussions revolve around the relationship between the sound team and the filmmakers. As a sound engineer myself, I can say that the sound is a very important element of any movie. For a good example, I will point out that the fight scene in 'Shakespeare in Love' is in fact made by the sound team, which is a very impressive achievement. The problem with this documentary is that the sound team seems to be portrayed as the 'good guys' in the film. This is completely incorrect. The sound team was almost completely under the control of the director, and his assistant was the 'bad guy'. This seems very unfair. It also seems to imply that the sound team is responsible for the majority of the problems that plagued the film. It is not. The problem with the documentary is that it's not very detailed. It doesn't seem to be very well structured. It seems to have an incomplete structure. It seems to have an incomplete plot. In my opinion, this is very unfortunate, because it makes it hard to know what to focus on. This documentary is a good example of why you should not watch a documentary on sound. It is very incomplete, and the lack of structure makes it difficult to know what to focus on. The documentaries on sound in general tend to be more thorough and are much better structured than this one.

This is a great documentary on the world of movie sound. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sound. There was no question that the sound crew was working with very low budget. I thought the sound and the editing was very well done. The cast was very impressive, especially Kevin Spacey. The film was well made, and it is very informative. The interviews were very insightful. It was nice to see the historical background of the movie sound. If you are interested in the world of movie sound, this is a great documentary. I highly recommend this film.

The story of a group of Hollywood film makers who have been involved in the making of several classic films. The movie seems to have more to do with the history of film making than the technical side of filmmaking. It also seems to be a story of Hollywood filmmaking, rather than a story about film making. However, I liked the movie, and I liked the way the documentary makers went about documenting the film making process.

A very interesting and informative documentary. There are some brilliant interviews with those involved in the making of the film, and the general public and film-going public alike. The film is almost entirely in English, but this makes it much more accessible to the general public. The film itself is an interesting look at the making of this film. It is a very difficult film to make, and the filmmakers do a good job of it. The film also has some very interesting interviews with the film-makers, including one with the director himself, about the making of the film. There are some interesting moments with the directors of the original film, and the makers of this film. Overall, a very interesting and insightful documentary.
