I was moved to watch this film after reading a review in a local newspaper about how this film was "just like being on the front lines in the Vietnam War" and how "the film captures the humanity and the values of the people who fight for their country." I was thinking that those words were to the point, but this film, this documentary, really reminded me of a war veteran who made a sacrifice that he could never repay. If you know someone who is currently serving in the military, you may be able to relate to his or her feelings about this film. This film is very well made and you feel like you're there with the people in the trenches. It's really difficult to watch, but it really shows the atrocities and violence of war. As the film ends, you feel like you're watching it again. The subjects are speaking very clearly and honestly about what it's like to fight for their country and what sacrifices they've made. You can tell that the soldiers who make the film didn't want to glamorize war, but they wanted to capture the horror of what it's like to be a soldier in combat. It's difficult to watch, but you can't help but feel for the men who fight for their country. You can't help but feel for the people who have sacrificed so much for their country. It's a difficult film, but it's an important film. It makes you think and it makes you feel. I hope that everyone who sees this film will share it with their friends and families, because I think that if everyone did that, it would help make the world a better place.

For those of you who enjoy reading a review before watching a movie, please note that this movie is quite long and contains many self-congratulatory reviews. If you want to see a movie that has some substance and the viewer doesn't have to be either sucked in or have their brains smashed into a pulp by a poorly edited montage of commercials, this movie is the perfect film for you. It is filled with people talking about their childhood and dreams, and discussing the virtues of their families, all while they are in the midst of making a movie about their lives. It is almost impossible to talk about this movie without including something about your own childhood, so be prepared for that. The film is split into two parts, and the first half is about one man's journey to making a movie. The second half is about the actors, and how they spent the two years after the film was completed. The actors are shown in scenes where they talk about their childhood and their hopes for the future, and how they have been impacted by their lives. It is a very moving documentary, and the reason I enjoyed it so much is because I am an actor myself. As a matter of fact, I am one of the most under-appreciated people in the world. In all honesty, I am probably the biggest under-appreciated actor in the world, and the only reason I'm going to watch this movie is because I love Kevin Smith. It is a testament to him that I have such a high rating on IMDb for this movie. I'm glad that people like me have an opportunity to see this movie, and that people like me can see it. I've always been someone who looks at my life and sees everything that I could possibly want. It is a very powerful movie, and I am very thankful for having the opportunity to see it.
