The late Phil Donahue was a true artist who showed us that even in a soul-wrenching life, there is still hope. Phil Donahue took a life that was torn apart by abuse and depression and he used that to inspire millions to live their lives with love. Phil Donahue was a true artist, and his life is an inspiration to all who follow him. This film is about a life that changed the lives of many people, and the greatest gift of the film is the images. This film shows us Phil Donahue as a human being with real flaws and human issues. His life was torn apart by his own demons, and he was able to use his voice to help others heal. This film shows the true, raw, truth of Phil Donahue, and what his life and the life of his friends and fans did to his soul. This film was an important part of my life. It helped me to overcome the shame that surrounded me because of my own pain, and to find peace with myself. I also felt the joy of a very talented artist, a true friend, and a true artist, Phil Donahue. I wish I had known him at such a young age, and his story has touched me so deeply.

I was skeptical of this movie, because I thought it would be about the rock n roll, but it really wasn't. It was about life. As someone who has been through every phase of life, I can honestly say that this movie touched me on so many different levels. For one, it showed that everyone is different. From being gay to straight, and from religious to not, and just from a loving mother to a drug addicted mom. I also liked that they showed how your life can change in one day, even if you're not able to make the change yourself. For example, my boyfriend died from a drug overdose, and he took my mom to rehab, and it wasn't the hardest thing in the world for her, and it was a big relief. However, it also showed that we can't just be happy and laugh our way through life. As I've mentioned before, life is tough, and the worst thing is that no one can ever truly know what it's like, because you're always just starting from zero. I don't know how many people are out there that have been through this, but I'm sure it's a lot. When you're young, you think that you'll never have a problem, and you just want to be normal, and be happy. But as you get older, and you realize that you're not the only one out there, it's a lot harder. You realize that you're not the only one who's depressed, or that you can't handle what's going on in your life. You're also able to have a conversation with someone who is struggling, and it's a really powerful and moving experience. This movie really made me think about how different people react to life, and it made me realize that we all have different problems, and that we can all relate to each other. It also made me realize that no matter who you are, and no matter what your background, you're still human. I loved the movie, and I can't wait for the DVD release!

Not a movie for everyone, but a beautiful story and stunning images of the USA. No one can watch it and not understand and appreciate the messages. If you can only understand it, then you've been having a bad day.

What a magnificent film. You can really feel the pain and frustration of the victims of the Roman Catholic Church. The documentary film really shows how you can feel and hear the anguish. The Church is a great subject for a documentary. The documentary shows the past and the present, and also shows the hatred and prejudice which was very prevalent in that time period. It's great that the Church was also treated as a victim. It was a great subject to use as a way to show how much harm they did. I was really impressed with this documentary. The subjects of the Church, especially with regards to the Jews, were really interesting. The story of the Purim massacres is also really interesting and important to the film. Overall, this documentary was great. It really made me appreciate the good things that the Church was doing. The documentary really showed how much they were doing in that time period. I really liked this documentary.

The film is a terrific summary of the human drama of many religions. The film is not necessarily an accurate representation of the beliefs of any particular religious group, but it does give a fair representation of what they believe in, and does so in a way that is accurate and enjoyable for all. The film is well done, has good music, and some outstanding photography of various religions. A must see for all.

A touching movie about an unlikely story. With outstanding visuals and excellent performances by the cast and crew of the film. What I loved most about the movie was the fact that it showed the plight of the African-American community and how the discrimination and racism that is still present in the US today. As an African-American, I felt that this movie really showed what the struggles and discrimination of a young woman who was given the opportunity to be a singer in the very heart of rock and roll. The way that the young woman, Janis Joplin, struggled to find her voice was heartbreaking and very inspiring. It is so sad that the music industry has such a large influence in the lives of so many people in our society. I feel that everyone who has an interest in music should see this movie. It is definitely a must see.

This is one of the most brilliant films I've seen in the past decade. It has all the elements of a great film: the music, the shots, the costumes, the script, the actors, the storyline, the setting, the dialogue. Everything. The music is excellent, but I think the best of it was the music for "Angel of Mercy". I couldn't stop listening to it for days after I watched it. It has the same impact that "The King of Comedy" had on me. I just loved the way that it captured the essence of the era, the society, the music, the society, the people, the films, the music, the camera work, the cinematography. And the film also captures the "war on drugs" and the "war on poverty" and the war on the working class. And the final thing is, the film has a message. "Angel of Mercy" has a message that everyone can get, and that message is "Justice". I just think it's the best film ever made, and it's the best film I've ever seen.

It's a sad day when a documentary like "The Great Gatsby" is made. But here is a wonderful documentary. It's very easy to see why this movie was such a box office hit and so successful at the box office. The film does a great job in showing the wonderful time in history when the world was going crazy for the great people of the world. It shows all the stories of those who came and went and that's what makes it so interesting. This film is great because it gives a little bit of that atmosphere. A very good documentary and definitely recommended.

It's amazing. What I loved about this film was the fact that it was about a black woman who was struggling with a lot of discrimination in America. It's a real story that needed to be told and the fact that she was a strong woman who overcame the negative influences of her family and the man who did not support her made the film even more special. As a child, she was forced to dress like a man, and a woman who was not a good role model, such as a mother who did not allow her daughter to play with dolls, or a father who was also not a role model to her daughter, forced her to have the clothes that were considered "boyish". What a hero. Her brother was also forced to wear a uniform and taught him to think that it was not acceptable to be gay, because he was forced to do so by his father. This is a very difficult subject to be shown and the fact that this is what happens in real life made it even more touching. Her story was not meant to be uplifting, and her story was tragic, but it did bring a lot of light into the way we treat each other. Her story did bring up some very important issues about discrimination in America, and what it means to be a woman in the 21st century. It is one of those documentaries that should be seen by everyone. Not just the ones who are trying to break the stereotype, but all of us. I would recommend this to everyone, especially those who need to get educated on discrimination in America. We need to learn how to recognize these negative influences and how to deal with them in a positive way. It will help us to see that no matter what race, creed, or color we are, we are all human and deserve to be treated the same.

It was a dream come true to see a documentary about my favorite musician. I have always been a huge fan of The Beatles and when I heard that this documentary was being made, I immediately went to see it. When I first saw the documentary, I was totally overwhelmed and I was so impressed by the way they did a thorough job of making it look like the real thing. I mean, if you've ever been to the Disney World theme park and you look at the kids playing with the magic, you know exactly what I mean. The Beatles also are in it. I didn't know that they were involved. They were not in the movie at all. I was also amazed that it was a true documentary, not some edited out piece of footage, but a documentary with many interviews with people who were involved in the making of the movie. They actually made it so that you could hear what the real people in the movie were saying. I think it was a great documentary, and I'm very happy that it was made. I highly recommend this movie, it's one of my all time favorites.

A beautiful documentary that shows what the American Idol TV show was really like. There are many people that are familiar with the show and do not know that it is only a part of their lives. They are the ones that came out of the closet to sing in the streets with the others that were not so lucky. There is no other way to describe this movie. It is a must see for everyone.

One of the best films I have ever seen. This is an incredibly moving story about how a child was separated from his family and brought up in the "Death" club. A true tale of hope, and redemption. This is a truly inspirational film that will touch the hearts of anyone who has a heart. It is absolutely heartbreaking to see the child's struggle to adapt to the American society. And the father's struggle to keep his son's soul from falling into the hands of the "Death" club. This is truly a movie to be seen by everyone. I will definitely be watching this movie over and over again. I cannot recommend this film enough. I cannot recommend it enough.

I went to this movie with a certain amount of apprehension and when it started it was very very slow. I didn't want to be distracted from the pictures, but I was very happy that it was that way. This movie wasn't the one that I had expected, but it was a very well done documentary. The first part of the movie is very slow and I just wanted to go to sleep. But as soon as I left the theater I was impressed. I was so amazed at what this film could have accomplished and I was happy that it had the courage to do that. I don't think anyone will want to go back to this film and I don't think any of us will ever see it again. But it's worth a look.

I must admit I was skeptical when I saw the movie first before it came out. I had read that it was about the pain that was caused by slavery and how it affected the world, but I still had no idea how it would be. Then I went and watched it. And I was blown away. I can honestly say that I was moved and I don't mean to sound that whiny, but I felt so much better about it now than I did at the time. The movie was very powerful and you felt like you were there in the very small moments, just like they were. It's an amazing film, and it was worth my money. This is the movie that shows what it was like to be a slave, and the kind of freedom you can have once you're free. It was done extremely well and the acting was fantastic. There are some real tears in this film, and it is very powerful. I can't really tell you what it's like to be a slave, but it will change you, and you'll never feel that way again. The movie does a great job at showing the brutality and the pain of slavery, and the movie is very good at showing what it was like to be in chains, and how it affected the world. I can't even put into words how great this movie is, but it is a must see. I'm telling you, this is a great movie.

This documentary was an excellent piece of film-making. The subjects of the film are great people and the events of that time were very interesting to me as a student of World War II and as a student of modern and contemporary history. The film also takes a look at the attitudes of those involved in the war and shows the ways in which they reacted to the events that were taking place around them. The film is very well done, well-edited, well-directed, well-acted, and I would recommend it to anyone. I give it a 10 out of 10.

What a great, amazing documentary! I watched it in a small theater, and I thought it was absolutely incredible! I never really felt a connection with the film until I saw it again. I don't think I've ever been in a theater and been completely taken aback by an event like this, or like the reaction of those around me. This documentary is incredibly moving and it goes beyond what I expected. The acting is excellent. It's very realistic and realistic. The storytelling is excellent. I really enjoyed the way the documentary was shot. It was so unique and so different than most documentaries. It's very hard to make a documentary without editing. This documentary has a great, strong voice that never falters, never loses focus, and never lets you feel like the movie is in a hurry. I love it!

This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen, its a must see for anyone who is into the Beatles and/or their music. As a lifelong fan, I can tell you that the documentary was a huge eye opener for me. What I learned, I can't believe I didn't know. The documentary itself is the highlight of the movie, the music is amazing and everything about this film is excellent. The soundtrack is excellent, and the editing is perfect. The actors are superb, especially Andy Garcia. I love the song "A Case of You" sung by a very young John Lennon. I also like how the film didn't show the Beatles' performance on stage, but instead the audience was the main focus. It was like watching a concert. I would highly recommend this documentary to everyone. 10/10

This is a documentary that I never saw before and I have to say, I am amazed at how this film has got such a bad reputation. When I first heard about the film, I had a feeling that I was going to be disappointed. It sounded like an old boring old Catholic Church story. But I decided to watch it anyway, because I was still a Catholic. I was pleasantly surprised. The film is basically about how the Faith has been twisted to make us forget that it is a God that we worship. It's an amazing documentary, the production is very good and the people who make it are also very good. I think that the most important part is not the story itself, but the way the story is presented. I think that if the Church had shown this to be a bad and sad story, people would have been angry about the film and most likely never watched it. That's why I think it is a good film. It does not try to make it a big hit, but more like an eye opener. And that's the point. I can't imagine anyone not watching it.

This is an incredible film that brings back memories of the early '60's. The music was fantastic and the great cast brought a wonderful feel to this film. The characters were absolutely brilliant and well portrayed. The acting by the whole cast was fantastic and the real story behind the great story of "The Mamas and the Papas". A MUST SEE FILM.

This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is all the more impressive in that it is based on actual events and interviews with real people who knew the actual people who were portrayed in the film. The "filmmakers" have also done an excellent job of keeping the historical facts straight, and the "film" within the documentary is also very entertaining. There are many details that I will not disclose in this review, but the film is worth the time to watch. My only criticism is that the music on the CD is so bad, it makes the audio track in the movie difficult to listen to. I wish they had kept the music in the movie, but then they could have made the documentary even better. I think the DVD is a great idea, since it would be a great way to get more people to see the movie. I also hope that this movie will be included on the upcoming DVD of "The Innocents" so people can see the "originals" side of the story, since the movie "The Innocents" will be released next year. I highly recommend this movie. I will be watching it over and over again.
