I really enjoyed this film, it is not one of the best films ever made but it is certainly one of the best documentaries I have seen. I have seen a lot of documentaries and this one definitely is among the best. The film is not perfect, some of the points are a little exaggerated but that is what makes it so interesting. I am still trying to understand why this film was not nominated for an Oscar. The documentary is not made by a human being, it is a documentary about a whale, and it is based on actual facts. It is interesting that the director is an animal lover and it is a shame that he did not win the Oscar. Overall, I would highly recommend this film to anyone, it is not for everyone but it is definitely worth watching.

I think that this is one of the most important documentaries I have ever seen. I am in the process of reading the book. The book is so beautifully written. The movie is just as beautiful. I think that this is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I can't wait to see the movie!

I was skeptical about watching this movie because of the hype. I was wrong. The documentary is very informative and very well done. The cinematography was beautiful, as well. The story of the slaughter of the dolphins is told very well. The footage of the whale is also extremely disturbing and sad. The music and the visuals make this movie something that you must see.

I really enjoyed this film. It was an amazing experience and I am glad I watched it. The content is something that we don't hear about in school. I would recommend this film to anyone who has ever had a friend die. I would love to see more films like this, especially documentaries. I would also like to see more movies that can make you laugh, cry, or feel something. It really made me feel so many emotions. I'm not saying this movie is going to change your life, but it will make you feel better about yourself. I recommend this film to everyone who has ever been touched by a loss.

This film is a tour de force for the director, cinematographer and all involved. I was a bit skeptical when I first saw the trailer for this movie. The movie was supposed to be a documentary. I didn't know if I wanted to see a documentary or a film. But I was totally blown away by the film. It's so insightful and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope the director makes more films. I have been a fan of his since "The Grudge" and this is the best film I have seen from him in a while.

I was a college student in the late 70's, and it was my first year of college, and we had a big party, and I was going to get a degree. So, I went to see this movie, and I saw it. I thought it was just a little stupid, but I thought, "Hey, that's a good movie, and I will do that thing I always do, and I will go see it again." I was right. And I did. And I still do. I think it's a great movie, and I think it's important. I think that if we want to make a difference in the world, and we want to have a better future, we need to know what we are doing. We need to know that we are not just throwing up our hands, and saying, "Oh, that's not good enough." We need to know that we have a responsibility, and we can do something about it. We can't just turn our heads and say, "Well, that's not good enough." It's too late. I think that we need to do this thing, and we can't wait until the end of the world. We need to do this thing. And I think that is the point of the movie. It's not about the ending of the world, it's about the responsibility that we have. It's about being responsible.

I saw this film for the first time a few weeks ago. I had to wait until I was home for a couple of hours to see it. I have seen this movie several times since. It is a masterpiece. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in a film that explores the deep emotions of love. It is not only about a couple of lovers, but about the people involved in their relationship. The characters are well developed, and the story is extremely moving. The ending was so powerful and emotional that I could not look away. The director has done a wonderful job of showing the audience the real reasons for the tragedy that befell these two people. It is a story of a person who has lost someone close to them and is in a terrible state of mind. The people involved in the film are portrayed with great detail and the emotions they are experiencing are brought to the screen in a way that is both touching and powerful. The film is not just about the two lovers, but about the people who were close to them and the people who were not. The director has taken the time to show the relationship between these people and their friends and family. This film will not be to everyone's taste, but it is definitely worth seeing.

WOW. How did this film get such a low rating? I'm guessing it was from people who only like a certain type of film. I'm a lover of both the genre, and I love documentaries. I also know a lot of people who have lost loved ones, and this film is very realistic. It's not a 100% documentary, but it does show the true facts about what happened. It shows how the media and the police reacted to the tragedy. It shows the local community's reactions, and how the families and friends of the victims tried to deal with the aftermath. I have to admit, I was disappointed with the film. But I think that the film was well-made, and it did a good job at portraying the facts about the tragedy. If you liked this film, you should definitely watch "The Thin Blue Line" or "The Truth About Cats & Dogs". They are also true to life stories. They are about a group of police officers who were involved in the killing of a suspect. These films are also very realistic. It's not all about the film, it's about the people involved, and it shows that it was a very difficult time for them.

I am a sucker for films that deal with the negative side of human life and the difficulty of changing it. This film does that beautifully. The themes and messages are universal. The humor and insight into the struggles of people is stunning. I was in tears at the end. I was moved. I was impressed. I was touched. This film is a must see. It is a must see for people who have been affected by the problems and issues of our times.

This is an extremely well-made film. I went into the theater not expecting to like it, but I really liked it. The fact that it was made by an actual artist, who is actually an artist, is amazing. The actors and actresses are all great, the story is touching, and the cinematography is wonderful. This is a film you should see if you can. I am not a huge fan of the great films of the past, but this is one of the best I have ever seen. The film does a great job of getting you involved in the story and getting you to feel like you know the characters. The acting was really good, and the story was powerful. I recommend this film to everyone, regardless of age, race, or religion. I highly recommend it.

I can't believe this film got such a low rating. What a wonderful film. The documentary on the Alaskan fishing trawlers is really interesting. It's a shame that this documentary has not been made available on DVD. I hope the film is on DVD soon. This film is very well made. I love this film. It's not the greatest film ever, but it's certainly the best documentary on Alaska fishing. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in Alaska fishing, or the Alaskan fishing industry. This film is really well done and worth seeing. It's not just a documentary on Alaskan fishing, but it's really about the people who live and work on the Alaskan fishing trawlers. If you're looking for a documentary on the Alaskan fishing industry, this is the one. I really liked this film. If you are a fisherman, or a fisherman's fan, this is the film you want to see. I don't think you will be disappointed.

This documentary is not only about the whales, but about the people who care about them. I am an amateur photographer, and I was privileged to be invited to the Sea World (my hometown) in Orlando to document the behavior of the killer whales. I was able to take photos of killer whales, whales and dolphins, and a lot of other things. This film, in my opinion, was the most important film I have ever seen, because it was about the whales, and it was about the people who care about them. I would recommend it to everyone, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in nature, or who cares about nature. It is a beautiful film, and I hope everyone will see it. Thank you, Carl

I am not a huge fan of marine science. But this movie is awesome. It is very funny and educational. I recommend it to all people who want to learn more about the oceans and whales. I can't wait to see what will happen next. I'm really happy for all the people who worked on this project.

I am not a big fan of documentaries, and this was not a documentary. It was a journey into the mind of a man who had a rare condition and that of his family. The film is simply amazing. I do not want to give away the entire film, because I would like to hear from others who have been affected by this disease. The documentary was done very well, with a lot of emotion and a great performance from Michael Sheen. It is a very well done documentary that will stay with you long after it is over. I highly recommend it.

A Whale of a Tale is a documentary that is very informative and you will be very interested in the journey of this particular whale. The people who are involved in the project have done an excellent job in capturing the humanity and humor of the whale and the people who live with it. The documentary is a true story and a must watch. The crew that made this film is the people who helped this whale get where it is today and I'm sure they have a lot of friends and family in the industry. I would recommend this documentary to everyone. I think it's a great example of how people can take a journey to help a species that is at a very low population level. I hope you enjoy this film as much as I did. I hope to see more of this kind of film.

In my opinion, this is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is both inspiring and instructive, and does not shy away from the difficult subjects that the documentary focuses on. In the movie, we are shown the different perspectives and the perspectives of those who have a lot to say, and the movie does not give us any kind of standard to judge. I think this movie is a must-see, and if you are in the mood for something a little different, then I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.

I don't want to say too much about the film because it would ruin it for people. But this film is an incredible insight into how the Jewish people experienced the Holocaust and how they did what they had to do to survive. It shows the cruelty and the madness of the Germans, who were ruthless and dehumanized the Jewish people. The film is narrated by two brothers, one of them a German Jew and the other a Jewish Pole. Both brothers had to fend for themselves during the Holocaust. The brothers made a pact with God and God told them to kill anyone they could, no matter how much it cost. The brothers learned how to kill Jews in a very brutal way. They didn't use guns, but they did use knives and axes. The brothers were incredibly cruel and it is incredible to watch them. The brothers were not all like that, some were actually religious and wanted to make a difference in the world. The film is incredibly powerful and has a lot of meaning. It also shows how important it was to remember and to teach about the Holocaust. It is a must see for everyone.

This movie was very interesting. It really made me think about my life. I am a college student. I do not have a job, I am not married, I do not have kids. I have just recently moved out of the city. I have never really done any traveling. I like to see the world. I like to be a part of something bigger than myself. I think this movie really changed my life. I can't believe that it has been that long since I have seen this movie. I am really glad that I went to see it. I think that this movie is important. I have to see it again. I can't wait to see it again.

This is a must-see for anyone who has ever loved a dog, a cat, a horse, or a horse, or anyone who has ever cared for any of those animals. It is a movie that you can watch over and over again and still feel that you have been in their world. I have to admit that I have not seen the TV series, but I would recommend it to anyone who has. I am so glad I watched this movie.

I watched this movie in my college history class, and we just talked about it. It was really interesting, because it gave a look into how the early church was, and how the world of the early church was. I thought it was a great movie. It was a little long, but I think it was important to have a movie about the early church, because there was a lot of knowledge about the early church, but the church itself wasn't well-known. This movie is really about the church, and it's history. I really liked the movie, and it made me think about what I was studying. I think it's a great movie, and it's definitely worth seeing.
