Films like this are the best thing to come out of Hollywood since the late '60s, when the audience was actually allowed to laugh at itself and not at the grandiose, ludicrous and overblown productions of the pre-Def Jam days. This is the story of Stanley Kubrick's attempt to make a horror film that would actually scare his audience. It's a big and ambitious film that was made for no other reason than to make money. The result is a film that is as big, flashy and "interesting" as Kubrick's own ideas and concepts are thought provoking. One that is also very interesting to discuss, because the film is full of discussions of the key points of the film. Like it or not, the film has more meaning than any other movie I've seen in recent memory. Kubrick's name is behind it, and we can only hope that the film will be better than it already is. For me, I'd say this is his best film. The acting is excellent. I loved the French actress that played the mom and I loved the role of the young man that Kubrick is fond of. His direction is outstanding and his techniques are effective. The film is full of fascinating ideas and Kubrick is able to keep the film moving at a high pace, while the ideas keep getting interesting. Kubrick has always been interesting and this film is no different. I think this film is a classic. I would not mind seeing this film again, and I hope I see it again in the future. 7/10

This film is an inside look at the life of an accomplished art gallery owner who spends most of his life immersed in the art world and all that it entails. Many of the major characters are still active, such as Roger Federer, Michael Wachowski, Tony D'Amato, and especially the great Arnold Schoeller, but others have departed. The main story line is of life in the art world and the battles that go on between the art world and the art world. The film is a fascinating look into the lives of all these artists. We are treated to a wide range of artistic styles, both of which are represented by their own personalities. Each has a different sense of humor, different tastes in music, and an overall aesthetic of their own. The film is split into four segments. The first focuses on Andy Warhol, who lives his life as an artist with the help of a psychiatrist and his beautiful wife. It is interesting to see how Andy tries to balance his work and life. The second segment is an interview with Tony D'Amato, who has taken a few years off from his work to focus on his kids. This segment is worth watching because of the excellent dialogue and the great insights that D'Amato has to offer. The third segment shows the relationship between Walter Kirn, the late artist, and his wife Anna. The film does a good job of keeping the viewer interested in the relationship between these two men and the dynamics that they have with each other. The fourth segment, a profile of Michael Wachowski, is very interesting because of how his own career has changed over the years. Wachowski is a well-known creative director and also has a particular interest in design, which is the type of work that he does with his clients. The film is also notable for the way that it portrays Wachowski's "family" in a positive light. This section is worth watching because of the insight that the director gives to viewers. It is also a wonderful portrait of the art world. All in all, this film is worth watching for it's great insight into the art world.

The truly remarkable thing about this documentary is that it's so easy to look past the glaring shortcomings and enjoy this truly incredible journey into the heart of an influential film director. It's also an incredible document of his amazing and very public life. The documentary is set to a soundtrack of his films and his own voice is so inspiring. Most of it is very very long and over the top but that's how he would want it to be. So the footage is so rich and so interesting that it's worth it. All the interviews are very detailed and raw. It's also very interesting to see him get older and his place in the industry as well as his real life. It's really interesting to see how he did all that. The final conclusion is the obvious and very satisfying conclusion. It's not the biggest surprise but it's very well done. You should watch this documentary to see what a great person he was.

I was not expecting this to be a documentary but I was still a bit amazed by the way it unfolded. The film starts out in order to give a bit of background to what caused all the unrest in Egypt and why the protests were so huge. We then meet the various people who are in the forefront of the protests. The majority of the movie is spent showing some of the people who have a major role in the protests. There are also interviews with a lot of the protesters who were actually arrested or beaten by the police and there is even some video footage of some of the protests themselves. The whole documentary ends with some of the main people and their reactions. This is an impressive film and I recommend it to people who want to know more about what happened in Egypt during the last few months of Mubarak's rule. I do not know why they decided to cut it off at the end but I think it was necessary because it really brought out the truth of what happened and all the issues that were around.

One of the most frustrating things about a documentary is that they never reveal exactly what you are supposed to be seeing. So this is one of those documentaries that is not really a documentary, but a collection of interviews of a former male stripper. He tells a very interesting story of how he was once an extremely popular man in LA, and then is now completely broke, and after a few months he realizes that he has no money to pay his bills. He goes on to tell how the prostitutes that he used to work with made money by putting in the promises that they would get him into big fights or car crashes. The rest of the stories are very interesting, and it is also an interesting look into the world of prostitution. This documentary is very well made, and it shows all the things that happen behind the scenes. It also has interviews with former clients of Mr. Ronn, and his story is also very interesting. Overall, I recommend this documentary.

This film explores the subject of The Museum of Modern Art, one of the most important museums in the world. I saw it a few days ago and I still find myself asking questions about it. The museum, in the form of a real-time media, which is continuously updated through public airwaves and television, not only has a wealth of information about the artists and the art world, but also the history of the museum, which is based on documents that were donated to the museum by the artists themselves. Most of these documents were made over the years by the artists themselves, but some are written by the museum's director. Therefore, the film explores the process of finding out the history of the museum, the art world, and the artist's life, which was based on interviews with the artists. It is a fascinating look at a museum whose main goal is to promote art, but whose main goal is to fulfill the artist's wish to see the world. In other words, The Museum of Modern Art is neither a museum for a particular historical era or an art museum for a specific population, but a museum for everyone. The main message of the film is that art does not have to be about people. It's not the people that make art, it's the art. In the end, it's the artists that are the ones who are the most important. Not everybody can be a great artist, but the most important thing is that everyone can be an artist.

This documentary is about the life and times of Bill Hicks. I haven't seen the film, but it is one of the most entertaining documentaries I have ever seen. The film follows Hicks around from 1966 to 1976. It starts in New York City and ends in 1966. Hicks tells us his childhood, his college years, his career in the New York theater and his retirement from the theater. The film also tells us some of the things that made Hicks an icon, such as his writing, his commentary on movies, and his love for family. Hicks is a fascinating person. He is brilliant, but also somewhat insane. He talks about his experiences, his writing, and his music. There are several segments of the documentary that I didn't care for, but I thought they were very entertaining. The one segment I was very fond of was when Hicks talks about the Grammys. His excitement for the awards ceremony is so intense and hilarious. It was so entertaining to watch Hicks with all the other movie and TV stars. It was great to see actor Jim Belushi and comedian John Candy in this film. They did a great job with their roles. There are a few segments that I found to be boring. The one about Hicks' personal life was really boring and repetitive. I also found the one about his sex life to be boring and unnecessary. The one about the making of Star Wars was pretty boring. The documentary didn't really focus on any of the other important things that made Hicks so famous. Like his music, his acting, or his writing. I think that the film was very interesting, but not the most entertaining thing I've seen. I think this documentary is worth seeing, but I'm sure it is not going to be the most interesting thing that you've seen.

I'm not sure why this film received such low ratings, but it's the only film that I've seen that was very good and at least somewhat sympathetic to the subjects of its subjects. However, I have some issues with the documentary style. The editing could have used some improvement, and the film could have been better balanced. But it was quite good in it's own right and I recommend watching it.

An eye-opening look into the lives of the poorest among us and the extraordinary achievements that these people have made. The documentary opens with a short, yet informative history lesson of one of the poorest countries in the world, Bangladesh, from the perspective of the country's elite, the royal family. The documentary does not attempt to present a biased view of Bangladesh's poor, but instead presents the humanitarian aspects of the country, highlighting the efforts by the military to distribute food to the poor. In addition, the documentary is not about "poor" people in general, but instead presents the people who have actually helped the country, giving up their own lives to give food to the hungry. I especially enjoyed the following: The first person interviewed is a famous Bangladeshi rapper called Mohan. He has been raising funds for the poor, but was fired because of his controversial comments on rape. This tells us something about the system, and shows that "poor" people have no voice, no voice, no voice. The second person interviewed is a homeless man named Eshwar. He has spent his life in the street and is homeless now, but he is still trying to help people. This shows the absurdity of the "poor" people, and how they are not only exploited by the rich but actually have no voice, no voice, no voice. The final person interviewed is a real-life humanitarian, a man named Sheikh Abdullah. He is a political prisoner. Sheikh Abdullah was arrested for the most part of his life. He is one of the rare, but influential, religious leaders in the country. The documentary does not try to preach against the people or say the government has no responsibility for the poor. Instead, it uses footage of the top officials to show how much money is wasted on the rich. The people are not told how the money is spent or how the money is distributed, but rather how much money is wasted and how it is spent. There is a deep sense of frustration and sadness that permeates through this documentary. This is the most interesting part of the documentary. The only reason I wanted to see this documentary was because of the actor who I have known since the beginning of his career, Mohammed Javed Sheikh. I liked his performance in "Cooler Than Cool", and I was anxious to see what he would do next. It is interesting to see how many people he has influenced throughout the years, including some of his own children, including a 4 year old girl. It is very clear that he does not have any issue with these people and does not hold them responsible for the lives of others. This shows that these people are not any different than anyone else. The people who were arrested and imprisoned and died were not criminals, but rather people who were wrongfully accused. The government should not have turned them into criminals. Instead, the government should have considered their crimes as minor violations of law. Instead, the government should have realized that there was a war going

I saw this documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival and it was surprisingly moving. This film follows the same theme as other "dear" documentaries like C.T.I.'s "Somebody Made Me Do It" and "Scars of War" but instead of being a "dear" documentary it is about the true effect of war on the human psyche. This documentary is not a love story. This is not a "dear" documentary about the war in Iraq. The story is about an Iraqi refugee, Najwa, who helps the American soldiers in the war, which is extremely difficult for her. She also helps American soldiers as a member of the Iraqi Liberation Army. The film is a visual representation of what war does to a person's mind and soul. I highly recommend it.

Not the greatest movie ever made, but it was pretty good. I think it's worth watching for sure.

This is a documentary about the life of a musician, James Taylor. The film looks at the life of a legendary musician from the 1950s to the 1970s. It is quite fascinating to see how much Taylor has changed from one generation to the next. There are many clips from the lives of some of his fans. And, it's interesting to see how Taylor has changed as an artist over the years. I think the film could have been better. It has some good clips from the past, but it really didn't have anything to offer that the film doesn't already have. I think it could have been more informative. Overall, I thought it was interesting, but it didn't have anything to offer. It's a good documentary, but I think it could have been better. Overall, I gave it a 7/10.

I have recently seen this documentary, and as a moviegoer, I was really shocked at how bad the special effects were. I would have been less surprised if the special effects were all CGI, and this movie is very well made and has some very good actors in it. However, the special effects are not the main issue with this movie. The main issue is the director's script. It is very badly written. Every other word is a term that indicates that this movie is about this man and not about the universe. The director doesn't seem to care about the universe as much as he does the man. This movie is definitely not a must see.

David Brady is a well-known personality and he does a wonderful job of speaking in a clear way that is easy to understand. I would like to see more of this man and how he manages to get the media to accept him. As I said, this is a difficult interview, as he has been ridiculed by many and treated in a very hostile way by the majority of the media, but it is so easy to see the positive attitude in his face and to get into his situation. He does a great job of presenting his story and of allowing his story to be told. It is not easy to do this and to be ridiculed in this way, but he does it with dignity and an honesty that is rare. I highly recommend this documentary for anyone who wants to learn about the creation of a 'movement' and what the media does with the information it receives.

This is an excellent documentary about the making of "Titanic" and the crew of the film. It also covers the making of the film's sequel "Titanic: The Life and Deaths of a Legend", which was also critically acclaimed, and the ensuing controversy regarding the film's appropriateness. It is also informative about the production of other movies that did not reach the great heights of "Titanic". As a result, it has the virtue of being somewhat entertaining. While the documentary covers the making of both films, it does so more superficially than those documentaries, as if the subject matter would have been much more interesting if the focus were on one film.

The idea that a Russian-born American can come to Moscow and become a major diplomat is an interesting one and one that can be compared to the film, "Dirty Dancing", about a Russian-born American who travels to Paris and becomes a great dancer. It is interesting to see a documentary about how American and Russian diplomats interact, and the movie can be thought of as a documentary about the importance of diplomacy and relationships, as well as a film about friendship. The film is of course a little long and some scenes are hard to watch. Still, the documentary does have its moments. I think it is worth seeing, even if it is hard to understand and you don't understand the Russian language. I can't say that this is one of the best documentaries ever made, but it is one of the most interesting ones I have seen.

Somewhat lost in the sand of the internet, this documentary is actually very good. It is well-made, with a couple of laughs here and there. The issue is not so much the film, but the way it is made. It is not slick, nor over-edited. Instead, it is much more natural and natural, with many many interviews with those involved. It is edited well, with some nice transitions. It is well done, and very enjoyable to watch.

After reading many reviews of this film, it seems many have seen it as a lazy but realistic film, and missed the point entirely. It is the case that many of the countries shown have issues, and this film aims to illustrate that and what can be done about it. The subject is of course the desperate fight against drug abuse, but the film also shows the many problems facing society in general. A film for which many had criticisms, but which I have found very insightful. Anyone who feels that the film is full of cliches is wrong. If anything, it shows many different aspects of the UK and the problems facing it.

I'm a fairly tech-savvy guy, so this is a pretty good read for me. The reason this film is good is because it doesn't glorify, point out, or point out in any way what's wrong with the status quo. The problem is that a lot of people are fooled by the media and certain bloggers and even some mainstream media outlets. What you see here is what you see here, and some of the more extreme views are probably on the right-wing fringe. In general, it's the mainstream media that provides the mainstream media, and some of the more extreme views are also on the right-wing fringe. This is not an attack on the mainstream media. They do a great job, and they have done an excellent job for decades. However, I feel like this film actually points out some really important and non-nuanced points about why things are the way they are, and in the process it challenges the overall cultural and political structure of the country. At the end, I left feeling that I didn't have the answers to any of the questions it raised, and I don't think I ever will. But it was still worth the watch, and I think it would be worth the watch for those of you who like to learn more about the problems in this country.

Cameraman has a sound, clear voice. Interviewer, does. Cinematographer, does. There is, however, a glaring omission from all of the above. Dialogue. Not a single line is delivered in English. A top director would be shocked by this, especially with that state of mind. Film editor has a simple but outstanding job, but he is so slow that you can hardly tell what he is doing. Cinematographer does an excellent job. On the whole, a solid documentary. 7/10

I am a "big fan" of James Franco's. I was pleased to see that he did a "behind the scenes" documentary on the making of the movie. It was well done and in my opinion was probably the most helpful, entertaining and insightful documentary I've ever seen. If you are a fan of Franco, you will want to see this, as well. I think it's important to see Franco in the media. He is so versatile. He has a strong ability to hold the camera, and he uses it effectively in every interview he gives. I can't really say anything bad about the documentary. I think it was informative and entertaining. I will definitely watch it again. I didn't find it a complete "horror" film, but it certainly was interesting.

I'm a big fan of the documentary series, Being John Malkovich, and this movie was on the second DVD in the series. It was definitely worth the watch. It took me back to the 80's. (I live in NYC) I'm definitely going to watch it again. I don't think I've ever seen the movie so many times in one sitting before, but this one is even better. There are some important interviews with people who have contributed to the creation of the movie, as well as some who weren't involved with it at all, like Mark Twain and Martin Luther King Jr. The movie is very funny and it's definitely worth a watch.
