I'm a fan of the late great Richard Pryor, and had the privilege of meeting him one day in the mid-nineties, and he introduced himself to me in the same old-fashioned way: as "Joe The Boss". There was no pretense, and it was all genuine. We spent a few hours together. It was a rare moment of real human interaction, and I found it compelling. Richard Pryor, in my opinion, is one of the most versatile and enjoyable actors in the world. In addition to his acting, Pryor has a tremendous ability to understand the audience and tell a story without words. He understands that the audience can't follow his every move and that he needs to maintain control of the audience through his words and his actions. With his wife, Diane, Pryor has formed a tight-knit family, and he and Diane remain close friends, and share a love of film, music, and poetry. Pryor's success is not only due to his acting. The supporting cast also works well. Dan Aykroyd is a genius. The scene with him and Pryor at the "Ace Hotel" in New York City is so good, it should be a classic. John Belushi is the life of the film. His portrayal of the alcoholic comedian is magical and unforgettable. Alan Arkin has made a career of portraying eccentric people, and this film demonstrates why. Not only does he give a performance that is completely believable, but he is able to bring his own hilarious, quirky, and wonderfully bizarre character to life. I'd say that it is my favorite performance of his that I have seen. Lily Tomlin, who plays Pryor's wife, is fantastic, and I loved her performance. The supporting cast also shows the amazing ability that Pryor has to turn seemingly ordinary people into celebrities. Bill Murray, Belushi, John Turturro, and other actors give incredible performances, but I'll be talking about the supporting cast in a moment. One of the best parts of the film is its music. It's rich and textured. Richard Pryor has a unique ability to transform his songs into memorable movies. The original version of "Ace Hotel" by Don Henley is on the soundtrack, and it's a wonderful rendition of a classic. The song is actually called "Rolling in the Deep", and it's the perfect choice for the song that plays during the climactic scene. The song is also featured on Pryor's album, The Richard Pryor Experience, which is a great collection of his greatest hits. The film is full of powerful messages about tolerance, diversity, and acceptance. Pryor's ability to stay true to himself and the audience is superb, and he and Diane are amazing as a couple. As I mentioned earlier, Pryor is a unique artist, and I look forward to his new film, The Richard Pryor Experience 2.0. Watch it if you haven't seen it already.

What a journey, what a film, what a movie, what a life! How could it be, it was so wonderfully conceived, it was such an incredible experience. The film was beautifully directed and the cinematography was simply flawless. All of the crew, all of the actors, and the entire cast was fantastic. This film will be an inspiration to every person in the world. I want to thank David Boreanaz for making this film. He has truly made an amazing journey, I have seen everything he has ever made, and he is the best!

This film is about a great actor, Roy Cohn, who in his younger years was a gay rights activist who wrote letters to the editor of the New York Times and put pressure on newspapers to change their policies. After a while he quit his activism and married his college sweetheart, who he met at a gay bar. When he was in his 30s, he began to express his homosexuality in public and then he moved to Europe, where he became a journalist, then to Hollywood, and eventually back to the States. Although Cohn never got to be an Oscar winner, he was one of the most important and influential voices in the gay rights movement. The film is an excellent documentary of Roy Cohn, his life and his career. The film is not so much a biography as a celebration of his life, career, and legacy. It is a moving tribute to someone who had a very big impact on American culture and society and who had great personal integrity. I strongly recommend this film.

This movie has some really good moments, but all in all it's a very good movie and worth seeing. If you ever wondered why so many politicians are so corrupt, you will see this movie.

This is a very funny documentary, and very entertaining. All of the interviews are good and insightful, but the real stars are Roy Cohn, President John F. Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon Johnson. All three men had their own personality, and that personality is perfectly captured in this documentary. It is like a tour-de-force of a lifetime, showing the three men's personalities, passions, struggles and triumphs. It's very fun to watch, and the ending is a real treat. Highly recommended!

I just watched this film and I found it extremely interesting. I have seen the documentary before, but never understood the whole story. Now I understand that some people were beaten to death by the KKK and other groups for their beliefs. I wonder if someone could explain the story better. The documentary is excellent, but it doesn't explain the whole story.

This is a wonderful documentary about Roy Cohn and the fight to stop the McCarthy Era. It is a great story and is a must watch for anyone interested in politics and the history of the cold war. The documentary does not have a lot of commentary on the McCarthy era, but it does make a point that McCarthy was using both communists and communists as a tool to attack liberals and Americans who were unpatriotic. It also makes the point that it was a witch hunt and it was done in the name of the people and for the people. It does show that McCarthy was not just a villain but an actual enemy of American liberalism. The documentary does a great job of showing the importance of the McCarthy Era, but it also shows that it was a witch hunt. The documentary is also well-done. It is well-edited, the sound is great and it is well-produced. The only thing that I would have done differently is that the documentary does not have a narrator. I would have loved to hear the back-story of McCarthy and his struggle against the communist witch hunt. I also would have loved to hear from the people who fought against the McCarthy Era. It is an important part of the history of the Cold War, but it is not told enough. However, I would recommend that people watch this documentary because it is a great and great story. I can say that I am glad that I watched it. 10/10

Roy Cohn is an important figure in the history of the American Left. He was a brutal man, and there was no way of stopping him. This is a great documentary about the man, and his struggles. The documentary does an excellent job of showing the crimes of the Communist Party, as well as the lies and slander that it spread. This documentary is a must see for anyone who wants to know the truth about the evils of the Communist Party. Anyone who has ever worked for the Communist Party or who has ever been a member of it should see this film.

I would definitely recommend watching this film. It is extremely funny, and the documentary aspect really does help you to understand the mindset of the participants, and how it was that they came to the conclusion that they were in a conspiracy to make Hitler appear to be a saint. The film gives a lot of information and is very entertaining. I found it entertaining in general, but also very informative. It is definitely worth watching.

This is a real gem. It's one of the few documentaries about the rise and fall of the Soviet Union and it's history. If you have any interest in the Soviet Union then this is a must see. If you don't, then don't bother. But if you like documentaries then this is a must see. It gives you a great perspective of the Soviet Union. As we're approaching the 40th anniversary of the Soviet Union, this is one of the best documentaries ever made about the Soviet Union. It was made in the 1990's, but it's very relevant to the present day. The documentary is pretty much focused on the Soviet Union. It's mostly about the people, their experiences, and how they relate to the world around them. It's also about the Soviet Union's attempts to control their people. People are mostly shown in the Soviet Union, but we also see images from other countries as well. This documentary is also very well researched and has a very good flow. It's a very entertaining documentary and I highly recommend it. It's the best documentary I've ever seen and it's really worth watching.

There are several things I'd like to add to what I wrote about this movie. One of them is the importance of Eric's work in the US. It's true that Eric has a strong presence and reputation in the US, but his work is everywhere. He's been featured in several documentaries about the apartheid era of South Africa. His work on the Mandela 'memorial' has been featured in the press and in several documentaries. The more I think about Eric, the more I appreciate the importance of his work. It's a great shame that a documentary about Eric's work has to be a movie that's just a lot of soundbites and trivia. The truth about Eric was, and still is, a very powerful and important story. We need more films about Eric and his work, not just ones that are a lot of soundbites. It's almost a pity that the film focuses so much on the friends and family of Eric and leaves out what he's been up to in the US, because the documentary is about his work, and not about his friends and family. What I learned from Eric is that he always put people before himself, and he always put the best interests of his own life above any other. That's why he's a hero, even when he was having a very difficult time. His own life was a struggle, and he used his talents to overcome it. This is what I learned from Eric, and that's why I'm grateful for what he did, and why I'm glad he's still around.

What an astonishing and outstanding documentary. I can't think of a film that has made me feel this way about a subject. This is probably the most important film I have ever seen. The story of Roy Cohn was the subject of such vilification by the media and his friends that he never knew what it was like to be a person who believed in non-violent resistance. I felt privileged to have seen this movie. It was touching. I'm sure I will be seeing it again. The viewer is given an inside look at the life of Roy Cohn. He was a man of conviction, of unbreakable faith in the system that made him. The other characters in the movie were also worthy of a great deal of respect. They were both people who saw things differently and understood how unfair things were. I think that the movie should be seen by all. It is a film about a man who was very successful at being a successful businessman, but who was so blinded by his own convictions that he could not see the harm that he was doing to others. I am glad that it has been made available on video. It is a film that must be seen and understood, and I will recommend it to all.

Roy Cohn was a very influential member of the conservative movement, but as a Jew he was more like a devil in this documentary. His worldview was that it was morally wrong for Jews to be in Germany at that time, and that a Jewish state was not only a bad idea, it was a bad idea for Jews. His position is very close to that of Nazism. Many of his ideas are still very much alive in today's politics. This documentary did a great job at showing how the relationship between the American conservative movement and Nazi Germany was quite different. His ideas were held by a minority of the American right, but he made a lot of noise, and he had a lot of influence. As such, he is considered one of the best propagandists of the conservative movement. He was not just an ordinary old man, but a religious zealot, and he was a threat to most of the conservative movement. Overall, it is a very good film about how conservative movements are shaped by many different people, many different ideologies, and many different paths. The documentary is very informative, and it does a great job at showing the relationship between conservatives and Nazis, and how they have come to be. There are a few scenes that are a bit awkward, but overall, it is a very good documentary about how many different groups have come together to form a political movement. It is really informative and entertaining, and it is a good way to see the history of the conservative movement.

This movie should be mandatory viewing in every high school, college and college professor's office. It's a very important and important movie, and has the ability to shake you up and move you to action. It is a must see for all of us who believe in the value of truth and justice. I am going to buy this movie and watch it over and over and over again. There is a lot to learn from this movie. The information about the domestic terrorism that has been going on for the past 15 years is very important, and they just scratched the surface. You need to see this movie to see what is going on in our country today. You will also learn about what is going on in the world today and what is happening to people around the world. You will see the world through the eyes of an innocent American in a world that is being run by a small group of people who have no respect for freedom. It is up to you to help these people, and do whatever you can to help them. The truth will always be found in this movie, and will always be revealed. I'm going to tell my friends to watch this movie. The truth will be revealed in the end, and the truth will always win.

I can't find any part of this film that I didn't like. It's so interesting to see how the late 50's were for the American public. I also was surprised at how different the 50's were from the 50's today. I think that the way the government and the news media treated the public was really different from the way they do today. The way that people think today is very different than it was in the 50's. It's amazing how much the 50's have changed in the last 50 years. I can't wait for the DVD to come out. It should be released soon. I can't wait to see the rest of the documentary.

First of all, I am writing this review after watching this documentary for the first time. I've been following the Donald Trump phenomenon since I first saw him in the early nineties as a sort of Republican version of John Kerry. I have not been a huge fan of Trump's politics, but he is the only political candidate I've seen that is open-minded, and has a mind of his own. While Donald Trump is no longer a Presidential candidate, he has no doubt become one of the most influential personalities in the world. I first saw this documentary as a late-night talk show host at the NBC affiliate in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I wasn't really impressed with it at the time, but watched it again, and was amazed. This documentary is not really a documentary, but more of an hour-long summary of Trump's life and career. It's not a political documentary, but rather a look at Trump's life and career, from the beginning, to the end. It is very well put together, and is a must-see for anyone interested in Trump. The first thing that I thought about was how Trump could possibly become President. At the beginning of the documentary, I thought that Trump could never do it, but he proved me wrong. I think that Trump is a great President, for he's intelligent, successful, and has great knowledge of how to get things done. Trump has had to work hard at everything he does, and he has excelled at it. I don't think that anyone can be more successful in business than Donald Trump. And I think that the reason that he's so successful is because he's always focused on his business. In the beginning of the film, I thought that Trump was arrogant, but then I realized that Trump was just smart. Trump is a successful businessman, and he always works hard to achieve his goals. I don't think that Donald Trump is just a successful businessman, but rather a successful President. Trump is smart, he knows how to get things done, and he knows how to keep his promises. I think that Donald Trump is a President, and I think that he is a very successful President. 10/10

I always found this movie interesting because it is so true to the late 60's and early 70's. The acting was so good, and so many of the scenes were so very touching. I have never been so moved by a film as I was during the final scenes. A very powerful film. I think all people who are either a feminist, a conservative or a moderate should watch this film.

I'm a Democrat who has been a member of the NRA for many years. This documentary shows the NRA's hypocrisy in terms of supporting the use of deadly force against lawbreakers, yet never criticizes the criminal element that perpetrates these crimes. It's amazing that the NRA has done this. It seems to me that the NRA, and the film makers, are saying that the criminal element that perpetrates these crimes is the NRA's enemy. They have taken the NRA's words to heart and have adopted the tactics of the criminal element. I hope they will stop taking NRA propaganda and cease using it.

It's like a rockstar's movie for any ages. The oldies, the newies, the nerds, the geeks, the gamers, and even the white trash, all get a front row seat to the jokes and side bets. Anyone who has ever used the internet, or any social media can relate to the celebrities and the jokes. It was a great movie for a new year's eve. This is definitely a must see for any aspiring filmmaker. A must see for any aspiring comedian.

I saw this film at a screening in Austin, TX, and was very impressed by the film. I would not have been as impressed if I had not been in attendance. The film is about a man named Roy Cohn. It's a film about a man who was known as the 'king of the lawyers' and a man who became a hero for many people who were afraid to speak up for themselves. This is a story about Roy Cohn and the people he brought to the forefront of the civil rights movement. I highly recommend this film, and I can't wait to see it again.

I have been a fan of William F. Buckley since his early years, and have always found his writing and his interviews to be engaging and often revealing. But this documentary is simply wonderful. Although it is set in the early 1970s, it covers the entire period of Buckley's political career, which spans the time from the late 1940s to the early 1970s. The interviews were conducted in his home and office, which were vast and filled with memorabilia. The viewer learns a great deal about Buckley's life, his life before politics, and his life afterward. There are some fascinating insights into the events that led up to his departure from the conservative movement, and the events that led up to his departure from the conservative movement. There is an abundance of wonderful quotes from his interviews. The book he edited is also a wonderful book, and the book contains additional material that was not included in the documentary. Although it is mostly about Buckley's political career, the book is also an account of his life and the ways in which his beliefs and values shaped his life. This is a well-done documentary, with many good quotes from his interviews. I give it an A-
