A moving documentary about Toni Morrison. The movie is set in a variety of settings, but focuses on one location, which is the Morrison home. It is a very touching, very powerful film, and is very well-done.

This documentary is about Toni Morrison's childhood, her early twenties and her later life. It's a portrait of a complex woman who can be both a troubled and a sweet woman. There is so much to be learned from this film, but one thing I loved is the subtlety of the filmmakers, showing us just how deeply she was involved in her own self-destructive behavior. It was incredible to see how much she struggled with her depression and how much her mother loved her. Toni Morrison's own mother was a major influence on her, and she grew up in a household where she learned how to be vulnerable and to be open to others. She never wanted her daughter to feel ashamed about her own life, and her own mother was always there to support her. This film shows that the power of her mother's love, both physical and spiritual, was an invaluable asset to her own life. It's a beautiful story, and I highly recommend seeing it.

I have seen this film and am so moved. It is wonderful to see how the actors have been so taken with this film. This film should be viewed by all. It is also very enlightening and shows us that sometimes the people we most admire and fear are actually the most sympathetic and the most worthy. I am now watching this film again as I write this.

I love this movie, I wish I could have seen it at the cinema when it first came out in the late 80's and I was able to get hold of it at the time. It is an amazing story of love and how two people can be totally different yet find each other in the end. The actors all have wonderful stories, but I would say Tim Roth is especially memorable for his story. I wish I could see it again!

I have just watched Toni Morrison: The Pieces I am, a wonderful and inspiring documentary. The director, Roddy St. John, and his team have captured the essence of Morrison's life in a way that is both moving and inspiring. The interviews are insightful and the photography is striking. I can't recommend this film enough. It is a film that everyone should see. It is not just for the artsy types, but for anyone who loves stories about the power of words to change lives.

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am is an exploration of the life and work of Toni Morrison. We follow the career of Morrison from her teenage years to her early death at the age of 57. We learn about her tumultuous marriage, her love for her daughter and her relationships with her close friends. We see her transformation from a vulnerable, vulnerable young woman to an influential, demanding writer, and we see the influence she had on her daughter, and how she changed the world of literature. I was amazed to see how much Morrison has influenced the world of literature. I am not surprised that people still refer to her as a poet. Her works are very important and many people do not realize how much of the world's literature was influenced by her. She is a wonderful example of the human spirit and what it is capable of. The pieces I am are part of her legacy. They tell her life story and she is honored by being included in her work. The pieces are not always beautiful and are also sometimes sad. I do not know if she ever intended to include them in the book, but they tell her story and are beautiful to look at. This documentary is a must see for anyone interested in Toni Morrison. It is a great story of an extraordinary woman and her life.

The best book I have ever read was The Ocean At The End Of The Lane, and I have read it a few times since. I thought this was going to be a really good documentary, but it was just the opposite. The documentary was way too slow. The only reason I gave it a 10 is because the music was so good. I would've given it a 6 if it wasn't for the slow pace. It was very difficult to follow, and I would've rather been able to see it in a theater. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has read the book or is interested in reading it.

I am so happy to see that Toni Morrison has been able to get a good release for her autobiography. I can't wait for the DVD release. It is a beautiful film. Toni is a very interesting person, and I'm glad that her story has been told.

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am is a truly unique documentary. It covers a lot of ground, but does so in a way that most documentaries fail to do. The characters, the subject matter, and the way it was done all contributed to the success of this film. I believe that the best documentary of the year is not one that has a great narrative or a great story, but one that is very well done. This is a great documentary.

I really loved this documentary. I've seen it a few times and it is a great addition to my collection. It is a great compilation of interviews with people who have been involved with Morrison's writing, the music and the film. It is very interesting to hear from some of the people who have been the ones who have inspired and inspired Morrison's writing. The interviews are interesting, and the film is interesting and enlightening. It is one of those documentaries that you can watch again and again and it will remain with you. I hope that you find this documentary as interesting as I did.

The best documentary ever made about the life of Toni Morrison. Watch it and you will be amazed by her life, her writing, her music, her imagination. It is an extraordinary movie, based on an incredible book.

I loved this film and was very disappointed that I had to leave the cinema without hearing Toni Morrison speak.

I am a big fan of Toni Morrison and I really appreciate her work. So I was quite surprised when I found out that she was going to make a film about her life. I am a big fan of this film, and it is a shame that she was not even interviewed by the director. That's the only reason I can think of for the omission. She is a very talented writer and artist and her words are a treasure. The interview with the director is priceless. The director also interviews her daughter, and the daughter was very sweet and understanding of the interview. The interview is informative, humorous and moving. There are many wonderful moments in the film. The use of imagery is fantastic. The story is very inspirational and I was moved. The acting is superb. I really liked it. It is a great film.

I really loved the film and was not disappointed. It was an enlightening look at the relationship between art and the human experience. I feel that art and art history has been a subject that has been neglected. I think this film will give people insight into the past, and hopefully give them a better understanding of what they have been missing.

I am always fascinated by the ways in which artists express themselves. Toni Morrison is one of the greatest living artists and is an inspiration for many artists who take inspiration from her work. I am currently studying her work and I am overwhelmed by the genius of her writing. This documentary shows the art of Morrison's writing, the characters and the story. It is not just about writing, but about writing, about writing, about writing. Toni Morrison is a writer of profound importance, and her writing is one of the most profound documents of our time. This is a great documentary. It will be a huge influence on the future of film.

I just watched the documentary and it is amazing. I had heard of Toni Morrison before but never read her books or read the interviews she did with her fans. When I heard that Toni was going to be talking about her books and her life and how she's survived cancer, it was exciting. I had never heard of Toni and was interested in seeing her life. The documentary is amazing and you learn about the pain she had, how she's survived cancer and how her fans were very supportive of her. I am so glad she was able to do this. She's a very inspirational person and her fans were very supportive of her and that was amazing. It was also very interesting to see how she was able to take control of her life and not let anything or anyone ruin it. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone that wants to learn more about Toni Morrison.

I have always been a great admirer of Toni Morrison, and I've always been fascinated by her writing. This film is a brilliant piece of work and the entire thing is truly breathtaking. I have been a fan of Toni Morrison's since I first saw the film "A Doll's House", and I was really excited to see this new work. The film is about Toni Morrison and her writing career, and it covers a lot of information. It is very good in my opinion, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the subject matter. I also recommend it to people who love Toni Morrison's writing and have never seen the film "A Doll's House". This is a very good film.

I'm a bit biased because I've read the book many times. So I'm always in the mood to read the book again and again and again. And this movie is just so well done. The acting is superb. The production is excellent. It's a "must see" for everyone who reads the book. The narration is the only part that doesn't make much sense to me, but that's the way it's written. It's not really a good movie. It's a good book, but it's not a good movie.

I am a filmmaker myself, and have the privilege of sharing some of my work with the world. I am very happy to share this film with you. I will not say much more. Suffice it to say that I'm not sure where to begin. The film is a tour de force. The subject matter is complex, the characters are human, and the camera work is amazing. My god, the cinematography is the stuff of legend. I know I'm in the minority, but this film is on par with "The Truman Show" in the scope and quality of film-making. I can't think of another film that has been this powerful and so deeply affecting. This film makes you think, and it makes you think about life and death. It is also a great film to share with a loved one, or to watch with the whole family. It is an emotional roller-coaster. You have to see it. It will change your perspective on life and death. You may want to turn it off after the first few minutes. It is definitely worth the price of a ticket. I will see it again and again.

Toni is a remarkable woman. She is the only person to have a story as good as hers. She has the courage to be herself and to share her story. She has the courage to tell the story of how she came to be the woman she is today. Her story is a tribute to the triumph of a woman over the odds. It is a tribute to the triumph of all of us, as a people, to do what is right. This is a beautiful movie, and one that you will want to see again and again.

I have to admit that I was skeptical going into this movie. I thought it would be like a "Mr. Rogers" movie with a few more cultural references, but after the first few minutes I realized it was not like that at all. The first hour of this movie was very interesting and there were some great interviews with actors and actresses. The whole movie was very informative, informative, informative. It also had a lot of "in your face" social commentary, but I thought it was very well done and very well researched. The acting was great and it was interesting to see some actors from the past (even people I didn't know were in it) like Toni Morrison, Robert Redford, Sean Penn, Jim Carrey, etc. The film itself was very well made. It was interesting and informative. It was like the documentary equivalent of a 30 minute television episode. I think this is a very important film to be made and I hope more people see it.

I went to see this film with no idea of what it was about. I have to say, it was a wonderful experience. I was expecting it to be about the old Tromaville and it was. I was surprised to see a very unique point of view on Tromaville and the film was great. I am not the most political person but I found this film interesting and well put together. It is a beautiful film and I highly recommend seeing it. If you are a Tromaville fan, you will like this film. If you are not a Tromaville fan, you will enjoy this film. This is not a film to watch if you are tired and don't want to be interrupted. It is a very well made film and one of the best films I have seen. I give this film a 10/10.

I've read a lot of reviews about this documentary and I can't understand how it could be a bad thing. It's amazing how the mind of Toni Morrison, one of the greatest writers of all time, is so finely woven into the fabric of this documentary. The interview with her son, Eric, is both fascinating and sad. Morrison had a lot of secrets to hide, but when he was able to share them with the people closest to him, it was deeply moving. He died in 1991, and I hope the film makes people feel more sympathetic toward his wife and children. "The Pieces I am" is a beautiful, deeply moving film about a man who was misunderstood, but also who was able to share his secrets with his family. The film also shows the artists who helped him create his final work, and how his work, in its entirety, can be experienced through the eyes of those who know him best. One of the best documentaries I've seen this year.

I am one of those people who, after a certain amount of time, just feels like the world is against me, even if I have the best of intentions. I have been trying to go back to college for years, to complete my degree and to find a job, but all my efforts to get the right direction, have failed, so I have given up. I am an incredibly talented artist, but have always been scared to follow my dreams, because I know that they will not go so well for me. I have been hoping that this documentary would finally give me the inspiration to do the impossible, but sadly, I was not surprised that the documentary was a little too slow for me. I have always been a person that has a great deal of faith in myself, but unfortunately, it does not seem to be enough for me to get a new start, and I think I will be left feeling like a failure for not doing the impossible, which is the last thing I need. However, I do hope that the documentary can inspire me to take action to become a better person, because I think that this is one of the most important things I have ever done. If you want to feel a little bit better, watch this documentary. It may give you the confidence to follow your dreams, or at least it may inspire you to find the courage to start the road to your goals.

In a world where political correctness rules everything, the work of Toni Morrison is almost forgotten. The work of this fine writer and poet is full of wisdom and insight. When she was alive, the book that she published was called "The Bluest Eye". It was an incredible book, and it inspired me to write a book. The Bluest Eye is a collection of stories, that was inspired by the life of Toni Morrison, and it was also inspired by her writings, the work of her fellow poets, and her personal life. I recommend this film to anyone who loves books, and Toni Morrison. It is one of those films that everyone should see. It is a great way to see Toni Morrison, and to see what a great writer she was. This film is a great tribute to the work of a great writer. A great movie.

Toni's story is one of the most inspiring I have ever heard. It is the story of a man who is totally unafraid of anything, he doesn't even care about being an artist or having a career. He just wants to make art. He is a genius. This documentary is a great story of a man who is so unafraid of life, he is willing to do anything to achieve his goals. He is a true inspiration to artists and to all of us.

This is a great documentary. It is a must see for anyone who is interested in this kind of thing. The story of Toni Morrison is interesting, and the characters are interesting. I don't want to give too much away, but the film is very well done. It is very well shot, with great editing. The music is also great. The film is very well done. I don't think anyone can see the film without seeing it. The people who made this film have a lot of talent, and this is the best documentary I've seen.
