While watching this documentary, I thought it was an interesting look at the modern Hollywood world. Not everyone in Hollywood is a movie producer, and not everyone in Hollywood is a film critic. One interesting point that was brought up was the whole backlash against the critics. The critics are seen as a bunch of low life hack writers and that Hollywood is trying to "whiten out" the critics. This is a very interesting point that I think will be interesting to watch. And the other interesting thing that came up was how much the movie industry has changed over the years. The movie industry used to be very limited and that's where the movie critics got their start. When movies were released they would have a major critic like Roger Ebert or Sam Raimi to review the film. Now they have people like Pauline Kael, Anne Hathaway, or Jane Fonda who are huge movie critics and they are the only ones who review a movie. And of course the biggest of them all is the Academy Awards. While it seems like the Academy Awards are run by Hollywood, it's actually run by the voters of the Academy Awards. There are a few people that will vote for the movie but most of the people will vote for the movie just for the awards. While I was watching the documentary, it felt like there were a lot of places where the movie industry was saying they wanted to go and not many of them were successful. This documentary just showed how the movie industry has changed. I definitely think this movie will appeal to a lot of people, it's very interesting to watch.

When a film is made about the coming of age of an adolescent, it's always a good thing to have a film that presents that aspect of the subject matter, and this film does just that. "The Apple Broog" is a documentary that documents the growth and influence of a teenage girl named Laura (who is, of course, the subject of the film), who in the early 90's was a poster child for the late 90's teen pop culture. It's an interview that is split into two segments, one with her mother and grandmother and the other with her sister and her friends. Laura is an outspoken feminist who's being shunned by her peers for her beliefs, but this is the time when her sister, the object of her adoration, is leaving her mother and moving to a different school. Laura has a long-term crush on her new friend Taylor, and she's determined to win Taylor's affections, which she has the good fortune of obtaining. Taylor is the oldest of her friends, and she has the weight of the world on her shoulders. As the first segment ends, the film ends with Laura talking to her mother about the problems of her peers and the school system and the push she's getting from her grandmother. As the second segment begins, we learn that she's going to be expelled for her beliefs, and her mother is ready to make a decision that will ultimately have a big impact on her daughter's life. It's an interesting documentary about the influence of pop culture on a teenage girl, and it's definitely an interesting film. It's definitely one that's worth watching.

From time to time, I am drawn to documentaries, especially when they are related to my life, and I felt that this one was definitely one of them. I love when filmmakers capture the feelings of the people in a documentary, and for this documentary, I felt that it did exactly that. The subject of the documentary is well-known and has been done to death, so there wasn't much new to tell, except for the one that I mentioned earlier. The problem with most documentaries is that it's hard to tell the story without making the story too long and boring. This is especially true of documentaries where the subjects are known. This one was different because the subjects were strangers to the filmmaker. I think this helped because it was rare to get the feeling of being in a documentary with strangers. I think that I would not have watched this documentary if I had not watched it with people who knew the subjects of the documentary, and that made it all the more powerful. The subjects were very real and I found myself really connecting with them, and that was one of the things that really made the documentary. I really enjoyed this documentary, but I'm sure that if you are a fan of documentaries, you will enjoy it too. I gave this documentary a 7/10, but it was not one of my favorite documentaries. It was definitely worth watching, but it was not one of my favorites. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone who likes documentaries, but it would be best for a person who has never seen a documentary before.
