Truly stunning, moving, inspirational. Every moment of this documentary is more than enough. For me, this is the best documentary I've ever seen. I haven't seen a documentary quite like it, and I've seen most of them. The documentary works as a mixture of memoir, interviews, and real-life drama. You get the sense that the main characters are at the age they're supposed to be, and then suddenly all the events and personalities behind their age change. All you need to know is that, no matter how much time you've been away, there's always a chance that you could be there next week. I was also inspired to go to India. This documentary is not only about Africa, it's about the whole world. It's the story of two cultures and their differences, about culture and politics and greed. It's a story of a part of the world that I can't go to and can't return. I hope you will see this documentary as much as I did.

I was truly impressed. This is the first time I have watched a film that really resonates with me. It is a film that I will recommend to others, even though I know it will not make a big impact. The point of this film is the real life story of "Jay Z." Jay Z and T.I. have been friends for years, and T.I. was Jay's advisor in the recording studio. It is very interesting to watch Jay's rise to fame and to see his journey through life. I was impressed with the diversity of T.I. He is a very diverse man, and has a very diverse personality. I do not know if it was meant to be, but Jay was perceived to be a gangster at the time of this documentary. This documentary does a wonderful job of showing how gangsters were very diverse, and how people thought Jay was a gangster in this society. I highly recommend this film to anyone, because it really is a great eye opener to what gangs have been and how their life has been on the streets.

I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this movie. It is a great example of documentary filmmaking. I think it is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. The camera was actually shaky for the whole movie and I was terrified of the shots and the music! I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a great documentary. Great cinematography, great music, and great story telling. A great story. If you haven't seen this movie, you will be very disappointed.

I first heard about this film when a friend of mine who saw it on the movie channel asked me to take a look. I agreed and for about 2 hours I was amazed at the film. I found myself unable to sleep for about an hour after I saw it. After seeing the film, I was totally sucked in. This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I would recommend it to anyone who is in the mood for a good documentary. You will laugh, you will cry and most of all you will be inspired. I am not a big musical aficionado, but the music and the songs in this film are incredible. The first time I heard the songs I fell in love with the songs. I have heard them over and over and still have them in my head. The performances in the film are phenomenal and it will take a big guy like me to truly appreciate the performances in this film. All in all I would give this film 10 stars. If it wasn't for the amazing music I would give this film a 1. There are two main reasons for this: 1) If you love music, you will love this film. 2) If you are into musicians, this is a must see. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who loves music and anyone who is into a good documentary.

As a music producer and writer, i felt a real sense of awe and wonder watching this movie. I loved the way the movie presented its music and the flow of the lyrics. It is a MUST WATCH. I will watch it over and over again! It has a few famous stars like Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Snoop Dogg, Usher, and many more. If you want to be shocked and aweed, this movie is for you. I am going to go to the theater again and purchase the DVD!

I know this movie is controversial and will make many people mad. It is not meant to be a good documentary. I will not call it the best documentary of all time, but it is pretty darn good and very good at making people mad. Some of the topics that get covered in this documentary, but a lot of it is being ignored. So, this documentary is not perfect, but it is pretty damn good. I recommend this movie to anyone that likes their movies bad. It is definitely not a piece of garbage. I think that people have been given the wrong impression from the media. It is not meant to be a documentary about American music, it is a documentary about international music. And even though they are making a documentary about US music, it is not about US music, but it is about international music. I think that they should have titled it something like the "Masters Of Ceremonies". And I think that this film is going to be controversial because of the issues that the American Music industry is facing. This is one of the documentaries that I wish would have been more known, but because of the controversy, I can't wait to see it again. I also heard that there are two additional documentaries about this music history that will be out soon. I think that if there are more documentaries that get released, then we will get more documentaries on this music history that we have not gotten. And that is what I want to see. My score: 10/10

This is the most exciting and honest documentary I have ever seen. By the end of the documentary, the people were fully engaged with the film and the overall theme of it. All of the people who have taken the time to speak were truly emotional and grateful for their life experience. The message of this documentary is that there is more to the human experience than just the individual. The people of this film are human. The message is that the power of life is in the relationships between people. For people who have experienced a life changing experience, this film will be a life changer. In conclusion, this is a great film. It is well-written, directed, and shot. It is beautifully edited, and it's a great story. It is sad and inspiring. There is something very profound about the message of this film. It is amazing that people have the ability to really put themselves in situations and see the results. The power of love and connection and connection between people and the power of human relationships are tremendous. This is a film that will touch you deeply. It will touch you profoundly.

This is a highly recommended documentary. This is a very personal film. This is a film about the history of drugs in Jamaica. This is a film about a generation that can be known as the "dot-com generation". The documentary contains very intimate and in-depth interviews with both the person who invented Jamaica's first real internet service, the men who brought the drug, and of course the drugs themselves. The documentary also contains interviews with Jamaicans who were either directly involved with the drug trade or in it's early stages. This documentary is very well done and I highly recommend it. It is a very long film, it contains a lot of graphic images of the drug trade, drugs, and the reality of drug dealing in Jamaica. The movie ends with the documentary showing a very interesting scene from the drug industry's own film. If you want to learn more about the history of the drug trade in Jamaica, or to see an intriguing film about drug trafficking in Jamaica, then this documentary is a must see. I highly recommend it.

This is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. The story is based on a true story and shows the changing world of M.I.A. When the music video, "Runaway" was released, the music industry was left behind by the hip-hop generation. M.I.A. is now an international star, a superstar, who won the Grammy award for the best rap song, and who has become an advocate for education, health, and a woman's right to choose. However, her story is just beginning. She was born in 1979, and in 2003, she was arrested and charged with a major felony, for having sex with a 14-year-old boy, "boyfriend", without his consent. She was sentenced to three years in prison and three years of probation, and the amount of time she had to serve was reduced to one year. At the time, M.I.A. was 20 years old. When she is released from prison, she and her family start an effort to start a nonprofit, "Save M.I.A. - a music education charity organization". In 2003, she begins to change her life. She starts a new job, goes to school, and takes care of her parents. She writes songs for her fans, and gets involved in the arts. "Runaway" was the first album by M.I.A. and she has had many hits, including "Gangnam Style" and "Gangnam Style" is the name of her song. This is a true story, and M.I.A. is a true inspiration to people who have had similar experiences. I highly recommend this documentary. It is a must see.

I'm not sure why so many have reacted to this movie with so much hostility. It is an important film, I suppose. I found it a disturbing documentary of a lot of young girls in a range of different cultures who live in poor circumstances. It is about the lasting consequences of that poverty, especially the consequences for girls. For me, it was a positive film, so maybe that's why some people didn't like it. But I think it has enough points to be a good film, and that is what I take from it. I recommend this film to anyone, it is a very important film and should be seen by all.

My mother, daughter and I all loved this film. My mother ( who had to force her way through to see it ) kept on asking me about it after the screening. The music was excellent and the imagery was intense. People were moved and understood that the sacrifices that people go through to make this world a better place. I will never forget the scene in which she plays a country song. It was so powerful. The movie also captured the vulnerability and the violence that was too often the reality of our lives. We can always find a way to put a smile on someone's face, but we cannot erase a tragedy that has been visited upon us. It is a sad truth that is often hidden from us and does not seem to be any different from a person's past. As a parent I can attest to the difficult choices and the choices that are made for the sake of our children. That is why we love them so much. I also appreciate the documentary's ability to hold a thought provoking discussion about our love of music, why it is important and how it is all intertwined. I'm glad to see that this documentary is gaining popularity. If you haven't seen it, please do. You won't regret it.

The energy and pathos of this film make it that much more powerful. People are more open to a powerful film like this one. I can't say enough good things about this film. It's a masterpiece, well directed, and extremely well acted. It is a perfect movie, no matter what your opinion about it. See it. See it now.

I absolutely loved this movie! I went with a friend and the first 15 minutes were a little boring but once the main character (Johnny) was introduced I knew this movie was going to be awesome. I saw it in 1 weekend on a theater showing in Indonesia. It was packed. I loved the way Johnny talked, the passion he had for the music and he really was like a true "Prince of Darkness" - no wonder why he was so successful. I felt it was important to see and I am glad I had the opportunity to do so. It was amazing to see this man evolve from a kid into a major star. To see how his life and his music and his life experiences were actually guided by God (as told by his father) - that was inspiring. To see him really go through his journey was really important. I am a fan of his music and really hope to see more movies about music - so he can go on to become a "Prince of Darkness" - and he could also become a "Prince of Soul" - a "Prince of New York".

One of the best music documentaries I have ever seen, from the 1970s. Beautiful song choices, the interviews, the music, everything. Brilliant.

In this beautifully photographed documentary, acclaimed director Jeremy Paul Wilson examines the history of an elusive group of musicians who brought Africa and the world a cultural revolution in the 1970s. Through his own journey through the country and interviews with those who knew the musicians, Wilson shows us how their music was a way of life for millions of people who simply wanted to feel alive and alive. Whether you're a fan of the music or not, you'll be glued to the screen for the entire run-time. Much of the film is done with live footage from the albums, concert performances and recordings of the group, so if you're a fan of the music, this documentary is for you. The interviews with the musicians are truly remarkable and give the viewer a better understanding of their lives and music. The film features incredible performances from the band, with some of the best music being played on screen. It is just so well done. This film is a must-see for anyone who is interested in music and the cultures that have influenced it. If you are a fan of Africa, then this film is a must-see for you. This film was highly recommended by critics and fans alike and it deserves to be seen.

One of the few films to fully exploit the music of Paul McCartney. If you haven't heard of the man, you should see this movie. If you do, you'll learn how much this man has impacted the music industry and the world of music. Not only has this film portrayed the great music of the 60s and 70s, but it has also explored the great music of today's world. The film is great on many levels, but I think the best is its approach to the story. The first thing I would like to say is that I had read the reviews for this film and, like most people, found them to be quite a bit of a let down. Some of the reviews were pretty negative, but I think there is something to be said for what people are saying. It was true that some of the editing was a bit odd and the music was a little hard to grasp, but if you pay attention to the details, you'll be able to get the most out of this film. One thing I was concerned about, and it was a very serious one, was the fact that this film had not been released in America yet. Some people, especially if they are new to the Beatles, might not know who they are or what they are about. However, I think this film was a great opportunity to educate a new audience on the music and the world of music. The world of music, however, will never be the same after seeing this film.

An unforgettable cinematic experience, following the often-troubled life of hermit sheik al-Kasai. From his early teenage years, al-Kasai was drawn into the world of music and music performing, eventually leading to his own solo act. The sheik's unique spiritual outlook is not only expressed through his life's experiences, but his philosophy is also interpreted by his followers through songs and chants. The entire film is actually sung, filmed and edited by al-Kasai himself, and is an incredibly captivating and mesmerizing journey of al-Kasai's fascinating life.

This is a film for everyone. It's a film about being an independent artist, about being a woman, about being an artist. The film is both beautiful and powerful. If you haven't seen it, see it now. The film shows how Maya and M.I.A. actually met and how Maya started writing songs for M.I.A. It's inspiring to watch this film, but it's also funny, sad, and so much more. This is a film that I would highly recommend to everyone.

This is an amazing documentary. It shows the transformation of Maya from her childhood in a concentration camp to her schoolboy days in Burma. In Burma, she was treated like a prostitute, and then a great jazz singer in a huge concert hall, before getting married to a wealthy couple. And she has this amazing way of looking at the world through her eyes, even though she has a very serious personality. And her music is so beautiful, that is something I think everyone should know about.
