Description Filmed with vérité intimacy for almost a decade, QUEST is the moving portrait of an American family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, parents Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" Rainey raise a family while navigating the poverty and strife that grips their neighborhood. They nurture a community of artists in their basement home music studio, but even this creative sanctuary can't always keep them safe. Epic in scope, QUEST is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, commitment, healing and hope.

This documentary is definitely worth watching, not only for the great musicians that were involved but for all of the musicians who were also involved. This is an almost historical document of the 1950's and the rise and fall of the Buddy Holly/George Harrison punk band that became the biggest band in the world. The documentary is pretty interesting in how it tells the story of Buddy Holly and George Harrison and how they did what they did to gain fame. There is also a lot of footage of the band being interviewed by the music journalists who interviewed them back then and showing them how they became the band that they were. While the documentary covers the band's history, there is no question that the real story that most people would probably never know is what was going on backstage and how the band really became what they were. The band actually became a big success when they started and went on to be the biggest band in the world. They also had a little bit of fame in the 1950's after releasing a few singles and doing a few songs with the band. Also, they were called the Cool Breeze Band but became the Buddy Holly and George Harrison Band. Of course, they were also known for their songs and videos which is a bit of a downside to the documentary, but they are interesting to see because the band was amazing and still are today. The documentary is worth watching because of the amazing musicians and the history behind the band. They aren't all that well known, but they are all musicians that have played in many bands and are now mostly known for their band. Most of the interviews are with the band members themselves and there is a good amount of stuff about their early days when they were actually doing a few songs. It's not a documentary about the band but a documentary about the band. I really liked the documentaries because it was fascinating to see how it all came to be. I also enjoyed how the documentary was interesting in that it did not focus on just the band's history, but a look at how the band became what they became and how they became the band that they were. I recommend this documentary to anyone that is into music because I think it will be interesting and will probably be interesting to many people. This documentary is definitely a must see.

I just returned from a screening of a documentary on the 50th anniversary of the Battle of The Sexes, which I came away from feeling the need to comment on. "The Battle of The Sexes" has been described as a documentary on tennis, which is accurate, but it really is more of an exploration of the human psyche, where it truly shines. The performances are incredible, the documentary really pushes the story forward, in some ways, through the perspective of the tennis players, and the footage of their personal life is a nice side-note. As a tennis player myself, I really dug the documentary's approach to describing the career and life of Roger Federer, and its presentation of the psychological aspects of his career. As a player, I really loved the story of Federer's life from the point of view of a player, but also as a person. While I'm sure most people can relate to how a player deals with his mental and physical health, this documentary highlights Federer's appreciation for the people he plays for, how the game and the people have effected his life and the way he goes about his business. The people Federer has come to know over the years, from former teammates to current opponents, show him the positive side of his life, which is in sharp contrast to the way he treats his wife, who I find to be just as important to him as the players. While I understand the desire to show the influence a player has on his community, the personal stories and reflections of this documentary really do ring true and will leave you feeling that Federer was a man with a heart of gold, and it's amazing to see how much he cherishes his work as a player and the people he played with. From the interviews to the personal videos, this is a film that will leave you with a stronger understanding of the personality behind the story. It's definitely not the focus of the documentary, but rather the story of the people, their struggles and triumphs, as they give of themselves and let you in on a story about the past, present and future. A must see.

After having some recent exposure to the AIDS crisis and the trial of a young man accused of injecting HIV into the blood of several young people in New York City, I became curious to see what the producers had to say about this and other cases in the United States. For starters, the documentary does not dwell on the specific case of Anthony Hopkins. Instead, it focuses on the epidemic and its impact on the victims and their families. In other words, the filmmakers tried to concentrate on the issues of the epidemic without making it a parade of gruesome images. Some of the shots are very dark and disturbing, but the overall tone is very somber. The production values are high, but the problems are some of the worst I've ever seen in a documentary. At one point the director informs us that this film was shot in black and white and that all the shots were from amateur film. Then he claims that this was a challenge to obtain the exact same tone, and it was an incredible task. There is also anachronisms, such as the use of the word "rampant" to refer to the epidemic in the United States. The documentary is essentially a series of interviews with people who are active in the AIDS community. The interviewees are somewhat familiar to me, as I have lived in New York City and there are several family members in the film. Overall, this is a good, if somewhat repetitive, documentary. I would recommend this to someone who is interested in the AIDS epidemic. It is more important than ever to get involved with organizations that work on the crisis. We have to fight the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS and show that this disease is as scary as the others.

Back in the 1970s, one of the biggest icons of rock 'n roll, The Rolling Stones, would play two sold out shows at London's Hyde Park. The remaining 4 sold out shows were their first ever performances in front of an empty venue and the band left Hyde Park the next morning. One would think the Stones would be overawed by the success of their first shows, but they simply went about their business the next day as if they had never played in London. This documentary takes us behind the scenes of The Stones' pre-record pressings at Warner Brothers studios. We meet the producers, the rock stars, the managers and the band members. The Rolling Stones were a real band and they did their best to make a decent recording album. However, there was something missing from the initial pressings. The Rolling Stones had a nice enough story to tell, but it was never really portrayed properly. You could tell they had a good story to tell. However, due to time constraints the Rolling Stones had to settle for a less than successful album. It could be said that The Rolling Stones never really got into the swing of things and we get to hear a lot of filler material which is simply done to provide a good music track. Even though this film does not actually do the Rolling Stones justice, it does give us a good idea of how they started out as a band. The first recording sessions were fun and entertaining and was the birth of a band. The first rehearsal sessions were a lot more serious and less enjoyable. However, the good things were all gone and the band had to go back to the drawing board. This documentary gives us a look at the first two years of the Rolling Stones. It shows the real-life roller coaster that was their first record contract and their break-up with Gershwin. They also get the behind-the-scenes look at the band's management from the people who had to deal with all of this. The soundtrack has a nice touch of humor in the parts that focus on the backstage antics and the light-hearted atmosphere. Overall, this is a nice documentary. The Rolling Stones went from a joke to a serious band. The movie only covers their first two years, but it is still an enjoyable story. Overall, I would recommend this movie to anyone who is a Rolling Stones fan. However, if you're looking for more, you could also check out The Rolling Stones In Action and The Rolling Stones In The US.
