This film is great. I am a liberal and was interested in the film. I am a supporter of the Occupy movement. This film is a documentary that is very accurate and makes me think about the world we live in. I am very disappointed that the film has been nominated for a few Academy Awards. I would have preferred a film about the Occupy movement. It was the most important movement of our time and the film should have been about that. I do not think it was a perfect film but it was a good film. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to learn more about the Occupy movement. I hope they make another film about Occupy.

A great documentary, I agree with the sentiment that it is an important issue, but I found it a bit slow and a bit too much in the long run. Still, it is an important documentary and worth watching. However, it does seem to be a bit too long in some parts. It could have been a bit shorter and shorter. The movie was quite nice, but not as great as I would have liked. Still, I am glad I saw it, and it is worth seeing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I found this documentary to be very enlightening. I find the way that the documentary is filmed to be a great way to show what is going on in the world today. I feel that the documentary shows the "growing awareness" of the way that the world is going, and the way that people are trying to find a way to make things better. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in learning more about the ways in which we are trying to make our world better. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to learn more about the world around us.

I had the privilege of watching this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. The filmmakers were very interested in getting the story out there, and I believe they succeeded. It is not a movie for everyone, but it is a very important story, and I think anyone who wants to learn about the past should watch this movie.

I saw this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival and it was so well done. It is a great piece of art. The political director and writer is excellent, and the story of the movie is so powerful. The film is set in the last few years of the first Bush administration, and focuses on the effects of the war in Iraq on the United States. The film is not about the war itself, but the impact it had on the country. The director, Michael Moore, is a brilliant film maker and he did a great job. The audience I saw the movie with was so engaged and involved. The audience was so shocked by the movie and by the people's answers to the questions posed. The audience was not "supporting" the film, but rather being completely engrossed in the story. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn more about the state of the world today. The film is powerful, and you will not be disappointed. I was especially impressed with the director's use of music in the movie. I have been a fan of Michael Moore for many years and I have been a big fan of his work for many years. The music in this movie is great, and the sound track is also great. The director also used a lot of visual images in the film. The cinematography in this movie is great. I think this is the best movie I have ever seen. It was a great movie and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the world today. I highly recommend it.

The movie has a rather familiar theme, but the approach is different and interesting. The film explores the human condition from a different angle, and I am always interested in that. I was particularly impressed with the way the filmmakers focused on a subject that is so important to the majority of people. I don't think that the filmmaker was trying to make a statement about what democracy is or what it should be like. It was a rather interesting take on the subject. The movie is really about a few people, and the way that they are brought together. The film explores how people get involved in politics and what role they have in politics. It is interesting to see how different people in different countries can have different views on the topic. The movie is quite well made, and the use of music was a good touch. I recommend it.

This documentary takes a close look at the historical debate over whether the American colonies were truly free, and whether the constitution of the United States was truly written by a representative of the people. It then examines the relationship between the colonies and the British government, and the subsequent legal battles that ensued. As the documentary concludes, the idea of a "commonwealth" was essentially meaningless, and that the colonists had no more right to hold onto the rights of "the people" than the British did. The documentary was well-produced and edited. The film is informative, and does a good job of telling a story that is interesting and informative. It is one of the few documentaries that addresses the history of the American colonies without the use of heavy-handed propaganda. While it is certainly not a documentary that everyone will agree with, it is definitely a documentary that can be enjoyed by those who are interested in the history of the United States. My rating: 8/10.

This documentary is one of the most interesting I have seen. It's the story of a bunch of people who fought against the Vietnam War. They lived in a small town and were against the war from the beginning. They were willing to risk their lives and put their bodies on the line for their beliefs. The documentary is about them. It's very interesting and well-done. The film is a mixture of interviews, news clips and old footage. I really enjoyed this film. It was a great addition to my DVD collection.
