In every corner of the world, at any given moment, random people post personal video clips online. They are their virtual messages in a bottle, tossed into the boundless sea that is the Internet. Most of these posts flounder in a sad limbo of indifference and anonymity-unless your YouTube handle happens to be Princess Shaw. Samantha Montgomery, 38, lives alone in one of New Orleans' toughest neighborhoods. By day she works as a caregiver for the elderly; at night she transforms into Princess Shaw, belting out soulful originals at sparsely attended open mic nights and posting homemade a cappella clips on YouTube, usually reaching just a handful of viewers. One of her followers happens to be Kutiman, a.k.a. Ophir Kutiel, an Israeli musician living on a kibbutz outside Tel Aviv, who mashes up YouTube videos from all over the world to create new musical pieces. Princess Shaw has no idea that he has found hers. A rousing documentary crowd-pleaser about a star-crossed singer-songwriter and her crafty secret admirer, Thru You Princess examines loneliness, anonymity and connectivity in the Internet age, where showbiz dreams remain but a mouse-click away for even the most hardscrabble striver.

Movies are only as good as the story they tell. This film succeeds at bringing you into the world of a great jazz musician in a very interesting and well-done documentary. The movie takes you inside of Shaw's head in a fascinating way. You get to see the great music he makes, and you get to see the great man and the great music he makes. This is a movie that can be watched over and over again with great music, great music, great music, and great music. It will be remembered as one of the greatest movies in history.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I have heard many great things about this documentary, and finally watched it for myself. It is a great documentary of the making of one of the most enduring rock songs of all time. I can't say enough good things about it. This is one of those rare documentaries that you want to see. It is a must see for everyone. There is no weak link. The documentary is about Rock and Roll, specifically about the making of the "Wild Thing" album. It is all about what made that album an instant success. And how their success and "Wild Thing" albums are just like any other successful albums. And how it is all about the people who work on them. And about the people that have worked on them, especially George Harrison. Harrison was the main focus of the documentary. He is in it. This documentary is really an incredible look at this legend and all the other people involved with making the "Wild Thing" album. It is very inspiring, and very fun. It is also one of those documentaries that will really make you think. The documentary does a great job of taking a look at the artists, the record label, the fans, the people that work on the album, the people that worked on it before, and the people who worked on it after it came out. It really is a great documentary. It is really a great look at a great rock band. And it is a great look at the people who worked on it. Great Documentary, Great Performances, Great Documentary! I highly recommend that everyone see this documentary. It really is a must see!

Princess Shaw is a very powerful and moving documentary about a person who has had her talents taken from her by the arts world. She was a great singer, composer, dancer, performer and when she went to New York, she took her music and her life and put it out there. She made it her mission to help all of the kids she met in her youth, to help all of them that she met in her adult life. The film was made with no budget and had to raise money in order to be released. However, we are really impressed with the quality of the film. She did a fantastic job and even gave us her personal story and experience that she had, but, also we can see the care and the love she put into the films. We can also see that she is going to live on, and we can see how important she is to our world. There were a lot of people in the audience who were touched by this film. We all have our life experiences that we would like to share with the world and Princess Shaw was an example of a person who was willing to share her story. It was a lot of hard work and we are thankful that she had the courage to do that.

The King Of Pop was a music superstar. His music was the soundtrack for the whole of the 1970's. Even his fans could not imagine that he was only 27, and that he had the kind of charisma and talent that could have resulted in him becoming the most powerful man in the world. So why do people love him? I believe that the people love him because he is charismatic and he has the ability to get people to go to see a concert, so they can go and see a musical performance. His music is so powerful that it can take your breath away and it can make you feel good. When I first saw "Shaw" the first time in 1979, I had never heard of the song and I was like "Oh! It's a funk song! What a funky tune!" I have since seen it countless times and every time I hear it I feel as if I have seen it the first time. I also find it very interesting that so many people love him because his music is so unique and unique. It also has the ability to make you feel good when you hear it and it can make you feel sad when you hear it. So many people like him because they are looking for something to say, something to feel. This movie was so well made, and I think that it was done so well. The best part of this movie is that it shows the power of music and shows the kind of personality that is able to achieve such great success in a young man. It also shows the power of celebrity and how we are affected by what we do and how we are able to create a perception of someone based on our own standards and our own preconceived notions. I would recommend this movie to anyone, not just to musicians. Anybody would enjoy this movie. I also have two nieces who are fans of the King Of Pop and they both love it. I would recommend this movie to anyone. This movie is a must see, and I would definitely see it again.

I found this documentary a very interesting and thought provoking documentary, that gives a deeper look into the people and their work. The film concentrates on the music of the Beatles. The documentary was very well done and the film was shot very well. As well as the music it also focusses on the story of the Beatles and the people that they were and the people that they went out to meet, see and discuss the music. The film shows the Beatles as a group of incredibly creative people who were always open to discussing ideas and the music. I have to say that this is the first documentary that I have watched that focuses on the music of the Beatles as a group of musicians. I would recommend this documentary to people that enjoy music, especially the Beatles. I would definitely recommend this documentary to any Beatles fan. I would recommend this documentary to people that have a musical interest. 9/10

I was interested to see Princess Shaw since I am a fan of Anne Lamott and of her books. I was not disappointed. It is a beautiful film about one of my favorite books. The cast was very well chosen and the story was very engrossing. I was especially impressed with the beautiful soundtrack. I will be recommending this film to friends and family and to watch it again when I have time.

In the early days of The Cure, they gave us a good enough record to know that there was a lot of experimentation going on. This film is about the way they approached what was probably their most important album. It's also about how they dealt with the death of their lead singer, who had a heart attack at home. They made a statement in order to avoid the stigma that followed the band's deaths. Unfortunately the film doesn't show the good times, as well as the bad. I would recommend this film as a must-see.

I must confess, I was a bit of a fan of "The Cure" before I saw this documentary. I was fascinated with the visuals, and especially the live performances, of this band. But now I've seen it, I can honestly say that this documentary makes "The Cure" look like a rock opera. I mean, this documentary is made from interviews, almost all of which are in the form of a documentary, and then the interviewees narrate their stories, in this case with a movie camera. There is not a single interview that has a voice-over. It's all in the form of interviews. The interviews range from talk to music, to details about the band members, to "personal moments" with the band. It's all very candid, with no back stories, no quotes, no character development. It's all just straight-forward interviews. And the documentary is told in an entirely different way than "The Cure" or "U2: The Ultimate Experience." There is a great deal of archival footage, from a time when this band was still alive and active, and it is very evident that a lot of time and effort was put into making this film. "The Cure" was a true and true love affair, and there is no doubt in my mind that this documentary shows the love, the affection, and the devotion that the band had for each other, for their fans, and for each other. I could go on and on about this documentary. But I think I'll stop here, because the information is so much more interesting than I could possibly say. The interviewees have really brought this story to life, and I would highly recommend this documentary for everyone. It is quite fascinating and entertaining. 9/10

The story of Princess Shaw is a classic tale of finding your place in life and making the most of it. The power of the message is just plain amazing. The director is an artist and his job is to tell a story, and he does a fabulous job of that. Princess Shaw's life is filled with happiness, loss, life lessons, and even a little bit of danger. It is a wonderful story that will move you to a place of your own. The music by the director is a joy to listen to and it is a great soundtrack to this movie. The acting is not amazing but it does not matter. The message of the film is what matters and it is an important message to be heard and it is one of the best films of the year.

This is a perfect tribute to a great artist, Princess Shaw, and to the music that she made, from the time she was a little girl. If you are a fan of music, and have a fondness for the more independent and avant-garde music, you will love this film. It takes you into the life of a little girl who could've been anywhere, and her musical life, through an incredible documentary. I have to give it 10 stars simply for the acting by the director and the team, and because this is a great tribute to a great artist and her music. I hope you will watch it.

Princess Shaw is one of the most celebrated rock and roll bands in the history of rock and roll. It's been over thirty years since they formed but the band has never really disappeared. As it is always the case with these groups, they are able to bring it all back to their former glory. In this documentary, director Christopher Hume interviews the band members and gives them the opportunity to reveal the truth about their past. From the day they started their career to the day they played their first show. This documentary is one of the best and most comprehensive you will find in this genre. It gives you all the information you need to know about the band and their history. It also looks at the life of the band, their struggles with their critics and the conflicts that they had with their contemporaries. The documentary is pretty good, but the one thing that really disappointed me was the interviews with the band members. They are really good and informative but they seemed like an interrogation to the band. For example, when they were asked about their favorite song, they answered "The Boxer" as their favorite song, but when asked about their favorite lyric, they were pretty much "I'm here to do my thing". The interviews weren't the only thing that was poor though. There are some issues with the documentary as well. The documentary is over an hour long and it felt like it was too long. In my opinion, the only reason the documentary was even worth the time was because the band members were really good. But if you're just looking for the facts about the band, this documentary is a good one.

To a lot of people this film is the best film about the famous singer of The Beatles. The film also describes her life and shows the influences and influences on her. The documentary is a mixture of interviews and actually all about her life. The film is simply a well made film that shows the life of Princess Shaw. The story is told in a really interesting way. The film itself is about everything you would expect from a documentary. There are various interviews with her friends and family, her band and songs, her work with The Beatles, and her personal life. You just follow her throughout her whole life. It's interesting and you can see how she is still affecting people today. Her music is really something that her fans love, and she is still relevant even to people who don't like her music. I really liked the way the film was made. It was kind of a documentary-style style, so it was really great to see that there was no interview where the person wasn't interested in telling their story. The film really focuses on just her life, and that's great. The film is kind of difficult to watch. You can't really expect everything to be shown, so it's kind of hard to tell everything, especially with the way the interview is. If you don't like Princess Shaw, you won't like the film. She really made it for a lot of people, and it shows that she really cared about all the people she worked with and how the film portrayed her. The film is really good, and it's a documentary-style documentary that shows the life of Princess Shaw.

I am not a big fan of punk, I am also not into metal. I am a music lover and I'm not into the movie scene either. I'm a big fan of Rush and this documentary is a MUST SEE for everyone who is a fan of their music. The documentary is a great look into the life and work of band Rush, who are one of the greatest rock bands in the world. The best part of the documentary is the interviews with some of the members of Rush. It's really great to hear how Rush changed and grew as a band. I loved how the documentary was able to take the time to discuss the band's influences and then talk about the songs themselves. I loved this documentary, I feel like it was a MUST SEE. If you are a fan of Rush, you should definitely check out this documentary. I'm looking forward to seeing this documentary again!

To be fair, I have never been a fan of American Pie. I thought the film was so incredibly dumb that I was a little annoyed I even bothered watching it. But after seeing this film I know that I would not have liked it if I had watched it during high school. This is one of the best films I have ever seen. It is definitely the best film ever made in my opinion, and it is not a one off either. This film is a classic in every sense of the word. From the beautiful shots, to the very unique characters, to the fantastic soundtrack. This film will be talked about for years to come. What a shame that it is not on DVD or streaming. You will not be disappointed.

The documentary film Princess Shaw is a great exploration of a musical legend's life. The film starts out with Shaw's childhood and adolescence, and then it goes into her life during and after her death. The documentary dives deep into the career of Shaw and her influence on the world. It also features interviews with her family, former bandmates, and many others. It is a must see for anyone who loves music. - MERK

I think this film was very well done, and very emotional. I thought the message was clear, but the way it was delivered and the way it was presented made me think very deeply about it, and I think that the message is very important, and what matters most is the message itself. The way I see it, Princess Shaw was a symbol of the love that each one of us carries around in us. Every time one of us dies, it reminds us of how we love each other. She was beautiful, and had a wonderful, wonderful life. What mattered was the message of how much love one has for each other, and how each of us can't leave a part of ourselves behind in the process of our dying. I loved the way that each of the directors put each of the photos and words to the film, because each of them told a different story, and it made each of the film's parts unique and significant. I think that the point of the film is to tell us that we all have different stories, and that we can't leave each other behind in our lives. And that's what I think Princess Shaw was trying to tell us, that we all love each other, and we can't leave each other behind. The actors and actresses were all great in their roles, and each one of them really made us think about our own lives. The emotion that each one of them was able to bring out was incredible, and their messages were very clear, and so very very powerful.

First of all, I have to say that I am not a huge fan of Damien Rice, as I didn't think he could be a good writer or musician, but he is, by far, the most talented person I know about musicals, and that's the reason I love this movie so much. I've seen this movie twice already, the first time as a tribute to a musician who died years ago and I really loved it. The second time as a music fan. And the second time, I had to listen to this one so I could appreciate it even more. I recommend you do the same, because it's one of the most beautiful, touching and just great films I've seen in a long time. Not only is it visually stunning, but it's very emotional and I didn't feel so bad afterwards. It makes you feel like you are there with these people, and that's a great feeling. And it's also an amazing story. The main character is a musician who makes his own music, and he has a love for his father, who is an alcoholic and abusive. But despite the things he has to go through, he stays with his father, and it's one of the most beautiful moments I've seen in a long time. The other actors, like the lead singer and the guitarist, are great too. Even the second lead, who plays the main character's girlfriend, is excellent, and she's so beautiful. And the visuals are amazing. You won't find better music videos than this one. All the music is amazing, and the soundtrack is also very great. I don't know, maybe I don't like Damien Rice as much as I did before, but I definitely love this movie. I think it's one of the best movies of the year, and if you don't know what it is about, then you should definitely go see it now. I would give it a 10/10, but I have to add that I'm only 13, and I don't know how good movies can really be in my case.

I am a huge fan of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.2, and I have loved watching it many times. A film version of it was made in the 1920s by Louis LeFevre. I am not familiar with the original, but I must say that it is a fascinating film. It gives you a great understanding of the epic and complex plot of the symphony, with great music, especially the opening and closing. I thought the way the film was filmed, with great camera angles and fantastic scenic shots, was very effective. It's a must-see for music fans, and it will be a great addition to the Tchaikovsky collection.

I was very excited to watch this documentary since I am a great fan of these iconic singers. It was very enlightening, inspiring and inspirational. The performances were amazing and the stories of the songs and singers were very relatable. I really felt like this documentary could never get much better and it did! I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of these great artists. It is truly amazing!

At some point in your life, you will become what you fear the most. This documentary explores the relationship between the "Demon of Pop" and the "Princess Shaw" to see if the relationship is what it seems to be. The documentary shows us what is going on behind the scenes when the pop princess Shaw (a former adult performer) is playing her "Piano Man" on stage with a bunch of boys. While trying to sing her way to the top, she finds that she has been left behind and must find a way to start anew. This documentary is very interesting because it shows us that the relationships that we share with others are more than just friends. We can be lovers, siblings, brothers, mothers and sisters. These are just a few examples of relationships that our human mind is capable of creating. This is a very deep documentary that is very enlightening. It is also very realistic and makes you question how people feel when you are sick and have to give up your freedom. In the end, the documentary is very inspiring. It shows you that people are very much alike and there is no real difference between you and the people that you are close to.

I know, I know, "The Princess Shaw Story" is a pretty lame plot to begin with, but it's a damn good one! If you're looking for a film to watch and enjoy, this is it! If you want to make fun of Beyonce's singing and want to see her read off a stack of paper or play a musical instrument, this is your film. It's definitely one to make fun of and it's a great way to get your laugh from the year 2015!
