After watching the excellent doco 'The Bunker' I was quite skeptical of watching this documentary. I saw it, and felt that the director and producer were on a mission to create the 'truth' about the lives of these people. This is not the case. I felt this documentary was very well done. It does a great job of showing the complex and diverse personalities of these people, and giving an idea of what life was like for them. It is important to understand that these people were all very different and had many different lives. For this reason, I believe that the film was very accurate. I really appreciated the depth that was given to the characters. I was also surprised at the fact that I didn't feel like the characters were being completely truthful. I did feel that there were some times where I could have done with a bit more explanation, but I believe this was part of the purpose of the documentary. I was also surprised at the fact that some of the characters had lived in this building for 30 years. I think this is important to show the complexity of the people living in the building. The people in the documentary seemed to have a very open mind and were very open to talking about their lives. I think this is important for viewers to see that people can be complicated. This film is worth watching and is a great way to experience the lives of these people.

A must see. Documentary is excellent in many ways. It is a "Who said it, and who said it not". There are so many stories and many lessons to be learned, but most of all the connection between the past and the present and the future is what makes this documentary great. This is a fantastic documentary that I highly recommend.

Some people will watch this movie just for the message. I watched it for the message, the film itself is well made and the narrative is very engaging. The story is of a Christian woman who seeks to end her suffering with her mother. The story begins in 1978 in Romania when Mary Elizabeth Maguire (who is now a nun) was pregnant. Her mother is dying and in her last days she asks Mary Elizabeth to do a good deed for her. Mary Elizabeth travels to rural Georgia to a woman who works as a caretaker for the house of a young boy, Domini. The boy is a bright young man, whom Mary Elizabeth had met while visiting the country in the 60s. The boy's mother (the caretaker) refuses to allow Mary Elizabeth to be with him. Mary Elizabeth eventually does her good deed, and a wonderful time is had by everyone in the house. This is the reason that the film is called "Burden". It is one of those movies that is worth watching over and over again. I believe that this film is a necessary part of humanity, and even though I have not read the book, I am certain that the movie is well written and well acted. The author of the book is also the author of the movie, and the movie is a story based on the book. I hope that this film will be a success and people will watch it to learn about the trials and tribulations of real people. I don't think that the message of this film is a bad message. It is very true and I believe that it is an accurate representation of what life is like for most of us.

I have just seen this film and found it to be deeply moving and intellectually stimulating. It contains a very comprehensive analysis of the attitudes of the upper middle class of Europe and America towards immigrants. The film also provides some fascinating insights into the life of a typical immigrant and his struggle to integrate into the world he has come to love and respect. The film was well worth seeing and is highly recommended.

The story of Kader Khan, a Pakistani boy who was a victim of rape in his country of birth, is the film's highlight. The pain, anger and determination of the boy, who was finally able to have his name changed after the incident, is remarkable. The realisation that he would never be able to hold a job, has not only taken him to the point of total despair but has also forced him to take up an alternative route to a life he has wanted. For many people who are used to their jobs and their country, the idea of leaving their homeland can be daunting. This film shows the impact this can have on a young man who has little or no access to education, and who has to rely on other people for food and other necessities. This is also true for Kader Khan's family, who are still struggling to recover from the trauma. I do not want to give away too much of the film but I do want to say that it is not only a story of a young man's journey but also an example of what can happen when young people are forced to leave their home. The truth about this issue is far too often overlooked. It is not just a story about a girl whose father is missing, it is also a story about a young boy who has no one to turn to. The film's message is that you are not alone in the world. You do not have to hide your pain or suffer the consequences of your actions in order to gain support. There are many people who are here to help you. There is no need to hide the pain. Everyone deserves to live in a safe place where they can live their lives and learn about themselves. You do not have to choose between what is right and what is wrong. There is no right or wrong. All you have to do is do the right thing.

Piece is so heartfelt, even tho the end is so depressing. The only one I didn't like was the voice-over in the end. If you're open-minded, you will laugh, and even though it is very sad and depressing, the director really shows you his heart. You really feel like you have to understand what he's going through and all of his struggles and problems. And for me, it was a pretty good movie, but it's not the kind of movie that I would ever want to watch again. It was too depressing. I mean, you can't have a happy ending in a movie like this. And yeah, it is really sad. I think this was a really good movie. But for me, it's not the kind of movie I'd watch again. I think it was a little too depressing for me.

I found this film to be very enlightening. The main purpose of the documentary was to help the viewer to develop a better understanding of the actual numbers of people that have died in this incident. I believe that this documentary, while being a well-done piece of work, was a bit over-simplified. The film is basically a compilation of photos and footage taken by the first responders, and also includes interviews with people who were interviewed for the documentary. One of the questions I had after watching this film was, "Why are the firefighters depicted in this documentary, all being portrayed as heroic and "good guys" to the extent that they are willing to risk their lives to save people, only to be demoted for good behavior? And when one of the firefighters in the film is not seen in action, why not show that his fellow firefighter was demoted? Why not show that the firefighter was demoted for using excessive force and using excessive force on people? One of the many questions that were asked in the film was, "Why do the firefighters portray themselves as heroes?" Another question I have is, "Why do they paint themselves as heroes?" One of the most interesting parts of the film was when the firefighter who was demoted had his statement to the mayor of Boston and the mayor said, "You are not only taking the city of Boston down, but you are taking the city of Boston down. The firefighters that I have been in touch with have told me that they have been frustrated, disgusted, and offended by what I am doing." It was also interesting to hear that a firefighter that had taken part in the attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, told the cameraman of the documentary, "The firefighters were there to save people. The firefighters are not there to make people happy." I believe that this film will be helpful to anyone who is interested in the firefighters and their role in the tragedy of September 11th. It will also be helpful to anyone who is interested in how to create a safer world and bring peace to the world.

This film is about a gifted young man who suffers from a severe brain injury. The subject of the film is his struggle with his disability and with the people around him. It is a great insight into a man who is somewhat shy and reluctant to talk to others about his disability. He has difficulty thinking clearly and his speech is extremely slurred. He is even capable of signing the "Obey Me" pledge, but he prefers to let others dictate to him. The film is very well done and informative. The interviews are fascinating and bring a sense of wonder and amazement into the viewer. The filmmakers present a man with no family and a mother who has divorced him and had no role in his life. He is a very introvert and self-reliant individual who does not want to spend time with anyone or to talk about his disability. The filmmaker plays a fair bit of clips of his daily life and interviews his mother and other family members who have seen the film. This film is not for everyone, but I think that it is a great way to learn more about a disabled person and what it is like to live with one.

I knew about this documentary for a while, and I was eager to see it. I had the impression that it was going to be a good documentary, but I wasn't sure what the subject would be, so I didn't see it until the end. This is definitely a documentary that anyone who enjoys movies or documentaries should watch. I thought that it was a bit too long, but I do think that it would be great to have a lot of scenes that would make you want to watch it over and over again. I liked the way that the movie ended, and that the director didn't try to put in too many big shots. I also liked the way that the movie ended, and the way that it started, and that the music was in the right place. Overall, I thought that this movie was very good. I really liked the way that it ended, and I think that the director did a very good job. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes documentaries. I also recommend it to anyone who likes movies or documentaries. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I am always very grateful to my wife for sitting through all the crap that is usually shoved in front of me. I think that the movie is very well made and it is very well made. I never thought that the world would end but I'm glad it did. I was very happy to see a little kid in the movie, I wish there were more movies that showed children. The movie is about how people cope with the fact that the world is ending. I think that it is very important to talk about this topic because it will bring up questions and it will raise awareness. I think that the movie is very well done. The movie is based on a book by David Ray Griffin called "End of the World." Griffin has said that he will not do a sequel to the book but that he does not know if he will do a sequel to the movie. If there is a sequel to this movie I would definitely be interested in it. If you are a Christian or a believer that is struggling with the fact that the world is ending you should watch this movie. It will open your eyes and will bring up some new questions that you may not have been thinking about.

First, I don't know what I expected from this documentary. I don't think it's possible to come across a documentary about the African-American prison system that wasn't completely depressing. There are many instances of violent behavior and stupidity by the guards and staff. The worst was when a mentally-ill man was chained up in the infirmary and a group of guards tried to rape him. After the assault, the guards left the room and walked away while the patient was still there. In fact, this could have been prevented. This is a shocking incident, and it is the reason the documentary is so depressing. We all know how often the guards act violently in prisons. But what's even more surprising is the indifference of the other guards and the medical staff. There was one guard who was reprimanded for being rude to another guard, but he didn't even bother to talk to him. The same guard appeared to be involved in the rape and assault of the patient, but he didn't even try to do anything to stop the assault. He simply walked away and left the scene. Other guards also did nothing to help the patient. One guard took a guy out of the infirmary and left him there, but when the patient was finally let out of the prison, he didn't even bother to try to take him to the hospital or even call the police. This is just one example of many, but there are many more. This is the reality of prison life for many African-Americans, and it is also the reality of the prison system for many other people. For a documentary about the prison system, it is very well done. It makes you feel very sorry for the people that are incarcerated. But what this documentary also shows is that there are many good things about prison life. I know that the documentary says that the guards and staff are the most violent and racist, but it's not the case. I have known many guards and staff who have behaved like that. I have also known a couple of guards who have been raped by inmates. I know that there are guards and staff who are as racist and violent as the guards. This documentary doesn't say that this is the case, but it's still pretty bad. However, it is certainly possible that the guards and staff are not that bad. It is also possible that some guards are as bad as the guards. We don't know that for sure, but the documentary clearly shows that it is possible.

When I first saw the trailer for "Burden" and heard that a documentary was to follow, I was excited and thought it was going to be really great. I was very wrong. After the film ended, I felt as if I just wasted 2 hours of my life. I just wanted to hit the pause button and walk away. The whole time I was thinking to myself, "What was that all about?" I was very disappointed. "Burden" was a really good documentary. I enjoyed every minute of it. The film did a great job of following the victims of this horrendous crime and it was very well done. The movie was very powerful and it really put the lives of these victims in perspective. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in how an act of violence can have such a devastating effect on a family. There are so many things that you can learn from this movie. I would recommend it to anyone who likes documentaries.

I loved this documentary because it shows the struggle of Michael Brown Sr. in a very clear way. He had to come to terms with the fact that he is a part of a great tragedy. The documentary does not focus on the man who actually shot him, but on his son and the way he tried to help him. The director has shown great restraint in showing the police officers who defended him. You don't see any of the police officers' faces, but you see the man in the street, and you see his angry face. You also see the relationship between his son and the police officers, who had to protect him, and were afraid of him. I liked this movie because it shows a human side to the tragedy of Michael Brown Sr. I also liked that it showed that Michael Brown Sr. was not a thug, but a peaceful man who just wanted to be treated with respect. That's why I loved this documentary so much. I wish I had known more about the family, because I would have appreciated it even more. Michael Brown Sr. is a man who should be in the spotlight more than he was. I think that he was only remembered because he is black. But I think that this movie could have been more about him, and it's impact on society. It would have been more realistic, because we don't really know much about his family. I think that his son is a good man, and he is trying to do the right thing by him and his family, and that's why he is fighting so hard. It is sad that we don't know much about the Brown family. I hope that the family gets the support that they need. I also think that the police officers that defended him are heroes, because they did what they had to do to protect him. I hope that they get the support that they need, because they deserve it. I also hope that we see more movies like this one. It really does change things, because it shows what people really feel. We can all learn something from this movie. I am still angry about the way that it was portrayed. I am also still angry about the way that the police officers treated him. But I am also angry at how the police officers treated the protesters, because they treated them like animals. This movie really shows the truth about the situation in Ferguson. It shows that we have to change the system and get a police officer in every neighborhood, because we don't need that anymore.

I remember the days of the Manson family. They were known for their crazy murders and there was a group of people that believed them. We were all fascinated with them. When this documentary comes out, I don't think I will forget the whole thing. I think it will stay in my mind. I was too young to understand what was happening. I still do not know what Manson was going for. I have watched a few documentaries on him but this is probably the best one. I think the main thing I have learned is that he had to go through a lot of horrible things. The victims are too many to count. We know how they died and the men were usually burned alive or had their throats slit. The government killed them and now they want to keep it all secret. They have even talked about killing off the Manson Family. This documentary shows the life of this family and how it affected a lot of people. I think it should be shown in schools. The kids will understand what it was like and be inspired. This is the best documentary I have ever seen on a subject that I think many people should know about. I have seen many documentaries on other subjects but this one is the best. I think I will watch it again and I would recommend it to anyone. It is a must-see.

An incredible and emotional documentary about the tragic death of 16-year-old Sarah Hansen, who was raped and murdered in New York City in 1989. Hansen's mother, now deceased, was one of the people in the crime unit of the New York City police department, and was forced to leave her job as a school psychologist after her death. Her father was a police officer, and was one of the police officers who found and arrested the main suspect, Paul Kersey, a mentally disturbed young man. The parents of the two children who were raped and murdered, had made a big deal of Kersey's arrest, and he spent many years in prison for raping and killing the children. The documentary is based on an oral history interview, which I found very powerful. It was well done, and had a good pace, and a good amount of interesting and emotional material. I found the documentary to be very personal, as the Hansen's family dealt with the loss of their daughter. The Hansen's fought for justice, but Kersey's trial was much more difficult, because he was mentally unstable. In my opinion, Kersey's case should have been a textbook case for the rest of the country, but the result was very different. I'm glad to see that a documentary about Kersey was made, and I'm glad that the public was made aware of this story, and it was a very emotional topic to deal with. This was a film that I highly recommend to all who are interested in this story.

There are not many documentaries that I watch at all. But this one was a must-see. The raw, unedited, unedited style of the film is really amazing. You really can't get any of the details of what it was like to be a gay man in those days, but you can see how people lived, and how those times were quite horrifying. This film is very interesting to watch, and there are a few people in the film that you would never expect to talk about this kind of thing. I had no idea that Mike Tyson was in it, but his face is always on the screen, and he is a very important part of the story. The stories are told in such a raw way, but it is so touching and so funny, you really have to see this film. I'm sure it will be a huge success, and I am really looking forward to what the future brings.

I was fortunate enough to attend the screening of this documentary. It is about the "Burden" campaign, which was launched by President Bill Clinton in 1994. The documentary is divided into several chapters, and features interviews with various prominent people in the country and the world about their own experiences with AIDS and their concerns about the future of the planet. Some of the things that struck me about the film were how clearly it was addressing the personal experiences of the people interviewed and how it was able to convey a sense of hope and hope for the future. The way in which the documentary was edited was amazing. In some chapters, there were short interviews that were very important and of great importance to the people that were interviewed. In other chapters, there were interviews that were brief, but when they were in the same place, it was very important to the people that were interviewed. In this way, the documentary helped bring out the personal stories of the people interviewed. One example of this is the chapter about the president of India, who is interviewed in one of the chapters and tells his story of being the victim of the "Monsanto virus." There are several other examples of this. Also, the documentary was very effective in showing how the "Burden" campaign had been abused and misrepresented in the media. I would have liked to see a lot more of the footage of people having their private health information stolen by the media. It would have been interesting to see what people said to each other about the campaign, and how it affected them personally. This documentary is also a great example of how different groups of people and different cultures, faiths, and beliefs have come together to help a sick society. There are many examples of this, but it is clear that many different groups have come together to help the world heal. I hope that people will see the film and see that they can't help what they can't see. We are all in this together.

I really like this documentary. Not only because it is a lot of fun to watch, but also because it makes you think about the world we live in. The movies we watch have become a major part of our life, and one could be forgiven for thinking that the world is in general run by, or for, people. This documentary however, shows us a different side of things. When you look at the lives of the people who live in our world, you see that there is a great variety of stories, and it is not all the same. You find that not everyone can be treated the same, and even when you look at the world from this perspective, it is still not always the same. This is what makes it so interesting, and it also makes it so interesting to watch.

It's hard to believe that this documentary could be made in 2013, when we are still struggling with an epidemic of HIV, and the very idea that a small percentage of us could contract the disease and live to see the age of 70 is terrifying. The film does an excellent job of telling the story of the British gay and bi community in the 1970s, while it explores the reasons why people with AIDS could be so readily attracted to their peers. The portrayal of the AIDS epidemic, the "gay mafia" and the "gay club scene" are especially well-done. Many of the scenes are dramatized, like when John Prine's character tries to kill himself and his lover in a toilet, and we hear many of the many stories that are presented. There is an equally powerful depiction of the hopelessness of many of the gay men, and the heartbreaking look of the other people in the world who were not as fortunate as the people they knew. Many of the themes in this film, including the links between the AIDS epidemic and sex, the homophobia of the time, the "bond" between lovers, and the memories of the gay and bi community, are really important. This film is a must-see for any student of human sexuality.

This film has more heart and emotion than the typical movie. It takes you back to a time when America was young and still had the same values that make America so special. I recommend it to all who have seen the movie and have become passionate about a country and a history. This film is very emotional and powerful. It tells the story of how a young boy named Bobby McPherson was murdered and never told the truth about what happened. It tells the story of a young girl named Mary "Sally" Clark who saw Bobby McPherson's murdered body and became obsessed with finding the murderer. I will say that some parts of the film are a little confusing but if you don't have too much to think about, the movie is quite interesting and well worth seeing.

I liked this movie a lot. The subject matter is extremely serious and important. Unfortunately, many of us take it lightly, because we don't really think about the problems the world is facing. The fact is, almost every country has a problem, or has problems. This movie shows us the differences and similarities between the various cultures and countries. I was surprised that almost all the people interviewed are Americans. It shows how far apart we are. This is a good movie to show to your children, or to your friends. It makes us realize how far apart we really are. We still have a long way to go, but the change is happening.

There is a young woman in the Los Angeles area who has lived in the house where she was murdered for nearly four decades. I saw this documentary at a press screening and I thought the film was well done. It was a bit slow in parts, but it was worth watching. The young woman who owned the house that was used as the murder scene has an interesting story about her involvement with the crime. As the film shows, there are other people in the area that were in the house when it was occupied by the family. The story was told in a manner that is in keeping with the history of the house. The film also is accompanied by a very good audio commentary track. I'm glad I found this documentary. I plan to watch it again.
