I was fortunate to see this documentary on the CBS Television Network. It was shot in and around Boston, MA, and was very informative. It was fascinating to hear the stories of the various artists, including one who grew up in a very troubled environment. I was shocked that it was only $4.00 for the film and that it was available at a local theater. It was well worth the purchase. I recommend it to everyone who loves to hear the stories of those who lived through the civil rights era.

I never had a chance to see this when it was released on video, but I can remember liking it, and I've been searching for it ever since. I'm not a great movie buff, and I have to say I've never seen a documentary like this. But if you've ever thought about this film, you'll probably see how much the people involved have suffered as a result. The real shockers are the interviews with the people who went before them, and the friends and family of the actors and the other actors who were involved in the production. It's a good thing to see that even those involved were impressed with what they did, and that it was made by people who had no idea that what they did would be used against them. It's a sad, sad story.

I have never felt the need to watch a documentary on a film, but I decided to watch this one after reading a lot of reviews on this film. I didn't know that this film had an enormous amount of critics but I am happy that I got to watch it. I can't see what's so bad about this movie. I was shocked to see how bad the acting is. The "cast" was made by three film school graduates who spent a year filming their own documentary. The four of them all have very good ideas, but are lacking in acting ability. I can't say that I'm a fan of the actors but I was still interested in the film. If you have a chance to see this, I recommend you do. It's a must-see. Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You is a must-see.

After watching the documentary "Just Another Version of You" on PBS, I decided to watch the documentary on Netflix. I was not disappointed. It's a very honest look at the life of Norman Lear, the creator of "All in the Family." I found that it was a very compelling look at the life of a very talented man, and a fascinating look at the history of television in America. I felt that it was very informative, even though I know very little about Norman Lear. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in television and television history. I rate this documentary a 9/10.

I recently saw this film at the San Francisco Film Festival and was very moved by the portrayal of the film. I was also pleased to see some of the work of other artists who have contributed to this project. The film has an unusual focus, but is primarily a portrait of the two filmmakers. I think it is the director's intention to show how the filmmakers worked and what they were trying to accomplish. One of the best aspects of the film is the fact that it seems to be a documentary, but is also a work of fiction. There is a very interesting video showing what the film is about and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the work of Richard Burton. It is not too long, and provides a very informative account of the film.

First off, I love the characters and the family. My dad is a detective who loves to investigate crimes and is a very good detective, and my mom is a psychiatrist. So we loved the movie. The first two hours of the movie were very gripping and it was like you were watching the true story. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire movie and I was very pleased with the ending. The interview with the brothers was good and I loved that they showed the actual video tapes of the events that happened in the beginning of the movie. I liked that they said the brothers had no memory of what happened the night they were found. It was interesting to see how they felt and how they were coping with the situation. I thought the interviews were very touching and I liked the fact that they said the brothers were getting along and there was no issues between them. I was glad to hear they had no memory of the night they were found. I thought they showed how the brothers loved each other very much. They told how the brothers were very understanding and even how they had given the brothers their first kiss. I thought it was very good and it was really sad that they didn't remember. I was very satisfied with the ending of the movie. It was a good movie and I would recommend it to everyone.

A TV-newsman with a heart for the people, Norman Lear is a man of many talents. He is a writer, comedian, and commentator. He is the creator of the Lear Network, which broadcasts his TV talk show. The documentary is a must see. It is very informative and funny. Lear's interviews are funny and interesting. It also shows Lear's love for his hometown of Montclair, NJ. I am glad I watched this documentary.

I am glad that I did not feel like I was just going to have to endure a whole movie. It was worth it. The memories that were brought back from the films I have seen are many. I also want to point out that I have seen quite a few documentaries about the Holocaust. I have always felt that a documentary should be about the subject at hand and not just a retelling of events. But I have to say that this was a great movie. It was able to convey the message that any one who is alive today who knows anything about the Holocaust is responsible for the atrocities that took place. I loved the idea of the way that people were affected by the Nazis. I felt that the people who suffered were not always found to be 'bad people' in the film. In fact, I found that the victims of the Nazis were often far from evil. I think that a person can be a good person, even if they were born into a bad situation. I think that the only reason that the Holocaust took place was because of greed, not the lack of hope. People should not forget that the Jews suffered for something that they never had any control over. They were not 'just another people'. I think that the ending of the movie was very emotional. I felt that the viewers understood the Holocaust in a way that they could understand the pain of the people in the film. It was very powerful. This was a great movie.

This is a moving and honest account of one man's struggle with the AIDS epidemic. Richard Dawkins (who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1985) talks with his doctor, Dr. Anne McEwen (who was diagnosed in 1991) about the life and times of this great man and the impact he had on his students and colleagues. He also talks with his wife, Jane (who died of AIDS in 1993), and his other children. The film shows Dawkins' work in Africa and his work in various scientific journals, and how he impacted the world in which he lived. It also shows how his work was misinterpreted and misunderstood by the scientific community, especially the scientists in the field of virology. It also shows how his work was attacked by the religious community because he was gay and because he was outspoken about the dangers of the disease. The film is very well done and very inspiring. The subject of the film is very touching and moving, and I think it is one of the best documentaries ever made. This is a must-see for anyone who wants to know more about the man, the AIDS epidemic, and the science that drove him to this point.

This is a compelling film, that will resonate with people of all ages. It's really hard to watch the lengths to which Lear tried to deny the validity of his own life, and the lengths to which he attempted to make up for it by claiming to be "the greatest living writer". This is a very sad and sad film. Lear must be rolling over in his grave.
