The man in the movie who wrote the book that inspired this film is a distinguished director, a good friend of Mr. George Lucas, a creator of a genre, "Star Wars" and a mentor to actors like John Hurt. The man behind the camera is a self-taught cameraman, and his skills are the stuff of which film making is made. So, I was intrigued to see what he had to say about the making of the film, about the dynamics of the relationship between Mr. Lucas and the actors, about the art and craft of film making. The answers were fascinating. George Lucas was there to say thanks. The first interview, on the "Dr. Relativity" talk show, is very funny and informative. It's great that Lucas says thank you for the film, for the work, the hard work, the passion, and the money, but he's not saying thank you to anybody. There's no need. He said the film will be "vital for a generation" and that "I would never make a film that isn't original." The second interview is with a legend himself, J.J. Abrams. He is a very seasoned director, a skilled scriptwriter and an excellent interviewer. He knows when to say "thank you" and when to let a guy do his job. He is also an avid student of film history and the culture of the genre. The third interview is with the man who inspired the film, Lawrence Kasdan. He is someone who has done a lot of writing, and he was eager to share what he had learned. He doesn't seem much like an interviewer but he has that good sense of humor, the very work ethic that the great George Lucas and his staff, the people who worked with him, and the people who worked at Lucasfilm had. The fourth interview is with someone who was there. The director of photography, Cameron Crowe. He is a very respected cinematographer, and he is knowledgeable, insightful and knowledgeable. He says that he used to work in New York. He is also very passionate about film. He does say that he wanted to do the film the way the Lucas wanted it to be made. He did not want to make a film where he has to worry about script problems. He said the script was changed about three times, and the actors were happy about that. He also says that he was happy that he did not have to make a film on location. That he was only working in the movie theaters. He had a particular day on the set of "The Empire Strikes Back" where he had to make the special effects on the Millennium

With his documentary film, "The Great Buster," Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney takes us on an insightful look at the history of the Battle of Iwo Jima in WWII. The film is both dramatic and fascinating, and it delves into the personal stories of many of the Iwo Jima survivors and the general public who saw the film. The only surprise is that I would have expected to see more footage of a relative named Edward Hubbard (whose name appears on the DVD cover), but the film does take an in-depth look at his life in the 1930s and 40s, including several short interviews. The film's most fascinating interview is with comedian Frank Gifford, who tells of the long-standing feud between the Japanese and the Americans that led to the attack. Gifford recounts several incidents, including the conversation of the Japanese commanding officer who revealed that they had purchased a large shipment of "unintelligible" Japanese telegrams in order to decipher them. Gifford tells how he and the Japanese agreed that he would return them to Japan before the Americans did. Gifford was then invited to Tokyo and informed by a reporter that the Japanese had refused to pay him. "I don't want to talk to them," he said. "I don't want to talk to them!" Gifford was the first American POW to be allowed to return to the U.S. with a Japanese escort. We follow Gifford's story in Tokyo, and at home in Hawaii, where his wife has recently passed away. Some of the most compelling scenes are those with Japan-born actor Nakano Sato (who was the son of a Japanese family who were deported to Japan in the 1930s) and his parents who lived in Hawaii. The film's ending, where it reports the fate of Japanese military troops who were attempting to capture a U.S. Army plane, is extremely moving. The history of Iwo Jima is one of the most significant battles in American history, and the film is well-done and informative, but it is not an easily-accessible film. However, I highly recommend it, especially to those who are interested in the battle and the WWII history. 8/10

A history of the movie genre is to the film industry as one of those long, intricate studies of the ancient world of ancient India is to the ancient Roman Empire. Buster Keaton was always a 'producer', who operated like a big studio: he hired the actors, wrote and directed the scripts, produced the action and special effects, made the music, produced the music videos, all those things. And for many years it was all very pleasant. But then came the new directors, new actors, new music, new media. Then came the new machinery. And now it's all a lot less pleasant, especially when one of the great artists of Hollywood (and therefore the world) has to perform for you a "new" version of a classic story, one of the greatest stories ever told. In the 1940s and 50s, Buster Keaton was perhaps one of the most successful producers and/or directors in Hollywood. Then came the big studio: Paramount, where he was the center of everything. He worked on a movie with a budget of hundreds of millions, and made it a commercial success. His movies were major blockbusters, his scripts were bought by big studios. And now, like a changed man, he has to work with lesser budgets and to make movies for less audiences. This documentary shows us the world of the movie of that time, the studios and producers and actors, the movies and the fan bases. What it shows is not really new news: just enough new stuff to make it interesting, but nothing new. And that is what I have to say about it: it's just enough stuff to make it interesting. But it is all made more interesting when we see the little bits that are new. It is also important to note that the film is in Spanish with English subtitles. It is really a good idea, one that works. We learn about the cast and the actors. We see the background of the producer and the director. And we also see the actors and their story, the real story of the movie. We also see that movie fans and fans of the actors themselves are a very important part of the movie industry, and are a lot more important than anyone would believe. In short: it's good, it's entertaining, and it's interesting to see the world of the movie industry from the perspective of a history of cinema. It's a movie that I wish more people would have seen. And I think that's the goal of this film: it's to make a real history of the film industry, to show the small bits of information that are really interesting, to show the people who are really the real heroes

This documentary-like documentary is a fascinating look at a few of the most fascinating real-life events in history. "Buster" got a lot of publicity, but the real story was actually much more interesting and far more important than anything that got made into a movie. The true story was told in the documentary and is now available for the first time on DVD. (I own it and use it in my home library) The director, Robert Knott, did a wonderful job with the material, and it shows his talent for documentaries. The film is more than just a look at what happened to Buster. It is a look at what made him. The narrative is very interesting, and the film includes interviews with a lot of people who have had a hand in making this documentary. There are also clips from real historical documents and footage from the Buster/Man-Thing movie. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the film is based on fact, not fictional reporting. The factual aspects are crucial to the film. The fact that the documentary focuses on the real events rather than the movie "Buster" is important. There are two reasons for this. First, the movie does not exist. The Buster movie was shown on TV and had no connection to Buster's life. The documentary doesn't seem to have any connection to the Buster movie. Second, the real Buster did not enjoy public attention. He was a very private person who did not like the attention that came his way. He did not see it as a problem, in fact, he thought it was a great thing. The documentary also includes interviews with people who have known Buster and Buster's mother, who told how they were devastated when their son died. Although Buster did not like being brought up as a boy, his mother was very protective. The real Buster did not like having people talking about him. He thought it was very bad. I think this is the reason he was so unhappy. This documentary tells the real story, and it is very interesting. It is fascinating to learn about what happened to him, and it is fascinating to see a documentary that is based on the real facts. I highly recommend it. 8/10

It's easy to see why people like this. The whole world is living in the same shoes as the kids. This is one of those documentaries you see and think, "Hey, that's not all that's going on" (or "That's not really happening") and then it gets interesting. The first documentary by Howard Zinn about the Vietnam War was really interesting and thought provoking. Then you think about it and wonder, "Oh yeah, I know that was a horrible time." A lot of people were over-educated in the 1970's and have had no reason to change. The documentary follows three girls as they grow up in Vietnam. One of them is just about as messed up as can be and makes a huge deal of being mistreated by the camp. That alone is very interesting. A lot of the time, the girls don't seem to notice or notice that they are mistreated. One of them even says that she hates it. But they do make a big deal out of it and eventually the girls learn to let things go and eventually everything changes. The documentary has a lot of great things about it. For example, the one that made me laugh the most was the little girl who can't read. She just doesn't have the talent or the language to tell jokes or to tell stories. She reads them off of a piece of paper. And it makes me laugh because the only reason she can't read is because she doesn't have the language or intelligence to tell it off of a piece of paper. It's a really interesting documentary that does a good job of showing the kind of things people have a hard time understanding. The first one was about the Vietnam War. And the second one was about the Gap. But this one is more about the idea of learning and how things are coming to be and you can't even figure out what it means to "act like a man" anymore.

The film "Buster", which deals with the war in Vietnam, is certainly one of the most important documentaries ever made about the war in that region. Although it is rather well known and well publicized, and there is a new film with a similar theme, the film is more of a "personality profile" on Buster. Buster is one of the more interesting characters that one could discover while researching this film, because he was almost entirely a "nerd". His life in Vietnam was relatively short, and he did not have any particular reason to continue his "mission". Buster is the most intelligent person that I have ever seen in this documentary, and that was one of the main reasons that I got interested in the film. Buster was not an easy character to like, because he seemed very naive and "amateurish", and also, his role in the war was a rather insignificant one. After all, it was an American soldier that started the war in Vietnam. In the end, I do not feel that Buster was much of a hero, and this is the reason why I found the film interesting. The film does not present an accurate picture of what happened during the war. Nevertheless, the film is very interesting, because it gives a very good understanding of what the war was like, and shows the impact that it had on Buster. Also, the film was shot in a way that was not "traditional", and that is one of the main reasons why I liked the film. Overall, I do not feel that this film was very well made, but nevertheless, it is an interesting film that is very well done, and I think that it is a film that is worth watching.

I have a few problems with this documentary. First, I had no idea this story was coming. After seeing the infamous "Ugandas" scene, a couple friends and I made plans to go to the set of "Ugandas" the same day. While waiting for the other movie to be completed, we spoke with the filmmakers and they were kind enough to show us the set. And so it was that I caught the director's commentary and heard their explanation of how they made the scenes. So, the first problem, this is a first-hand account of the making of the film. Second, I don't want to speculate that this film is inspired by true events. I think that it is more likely that the film was made to cater to a different kind of audience. It's just that I just thought it would be nice to see the look and feel of a real film, and not have to go into the history of the particular period (or the race) to get it. I've read reviews that are mostly positive and I wasn't too disappointed with the film's visual effects. The cinematography was excellent. For me, it was a good blend of fantasy and documentary. Third, the analysis of the 'circles of life' and the places in which they existed, their relationships, how the personalities were linked, the cultural influence on the members of the group and the pros and cons of each individual. I'd like to know more about these people and their thoughts and feelings as well as the stories that they tell. I would have been interested to hear their stories but I suppose that's just me being out of place. Bottom line, there are some things that were not explained in this film, but other than that, I really liked this film. I don't think that it would be realistic for me to make a documentary about this period, but I think it is a worthwhile effort. I would also like to know more about the overall impact of this film and how it impacted the people that were involved with it. This is one of those things that might be worth my while to research and to find out more.

This is a documentary about the notorious "busty queen" Marilyn Monroe, whom many people love to hate. For one thing, she was a big slob. She had a very feminine body with extremely large breasts and a curvaceous face. She was thin and had a full head of hair, which was naturally curling and loose at the same time. She also had a long and sinuous nose that went down to her nostrils, and in the age of dental floss she had a toothpick stuck in her gum, which she had pulled out with a pair of scissors. Her hair, which had a very short flowing down to the floor, had straight black hair which was usually brown. She was constantly wearing ridiculous outfits, often a ruffled skirt, blouses, a low-cut blouse, a sexy black leather jacket, etc. So yes, she was an exhibitionist. But not in the way that many people love to hate. Even as a teenager, Marilyn always had her clothes on, and she was always naked in public. But not a lot of people know that Marilyn also did a lot of work with her own time. She was constantly traveling to promote her films, and she did theater work and lectured. She had a fascination with makeup and fashion. Even though it's true, her body was never that big, it was a very small, tight, and curvy, which was fine for Marilyn's cellulite. She had a petite figure. But the bottom line is, she was a beautiful woman with a body that people loved. Her personification in the film is stunning. It's an awesome exhibition of her body. I can't describe the joy of seeing her. This is a great documentary. It's filled with a lot of insight and amazing insights into her life. And I can't believe that there are so many people out there who are still hating on Marilyn Monroe. But I know some people who love her, and I love her, too.

Buster Keaton never got the attention he deserved when his mother committed suicide, but there was no doubt in his mind that he was worth more than most of the movies that appeared in theaters. Keaton got the attention that he deserved from a peculiar man who brought him to the big screen. In the 1940s, Buster Keaton was an average joe with a normal life, who liked to go swimming in the lakes of Wisconsin. As a young man, Buster wanted to be an actor, but he never had a chance to do so, because he was too small to get the roles that he wanted to be in. Instead, he worked as a miner and a foreman at a steel mill. He had a life that was very easy and enjoyable, and he knew that it was good for him. But he wasn't like that, and he didn't like to be reminded of that. So he decided to make a movie to show that he was different than other people. He went to a small town in Wisconsin, and found that the people there liked a different kind of movie. The people that he met there loved his movies, and they had a vision for the future, as they had no desire for the past. One of the movie stars there was John Huston. That was when Buster really decided to become an actor. In the end, Buster realized that his life was what he wanted. He realized that he was an actor, not a miner or a foreman. He realized that he had many more things in his life, that he wasn't satisfied with, and he had the courage to make his living off of them. He never tried to be like anyone else, and he never let anyone tell him that he wasn't good. But he learned that he wasn't going to be able to be satisfied with his life. And as he had a great life, he had an even greater death.
