Description Known as a raucous, entertaining raconteur, Chavela chose the stories she liked best, breathed life into them and made them manifest. In her amazing journey from a 14-year-old rejected runaway from Costa Rica to world renowned, Grammy winning Mexican icon, this dream weaver took bits and pieces of who she was and who she wanted to be and wove them into reality. Although she didn't officially "come out" until she was 81 years old, Chavela carefully crafted a public persona as a powerful, rebellious, free spirited outsider, a sexy sexual outlaw who blazed her own unique trail until she left the physical plane at the tender age of 93.

At first glance, the film is a strange tale. When Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan stars in an independent documentary about C-IVA, it looks like a self-important director will star in a movie about the importance of C-IVA, and he certainly did, but instead, he basically admits that he "thought of" a screenplay about the C-IVA, which in fact was written by Karan Johar. And because Johar has been credited with helping make Khan an icon in Bollywood, his role in this documentary is almost negligible, as he is replaced by Kangana Ranaut. In fact, Johar is not even mentioned at all. The film itself seems very amateurish. The documentary contains only a very minimal amount of C-IVA memorabilia, and even that is almost irrelevant. The entire thing feels too scripted, with the camera positions practically every second, to allow us to truly feel the glory of the C-IVA. But because the main story of the C-IVA is irrelevant, it becomes quite boring. The real reason the C-IVA was made is about a great civil rights movement and the activities of Mahatma Gandhi, and why the C-IVA was called the Mahatma Mahanavati. I'd say it's a very average Bollywood movie about the importance of C-IVA. But what made the C-IVA great is the multi-racial population of India, and the strength of Mahatma Gandhi's ideas. It was a very important time in India, where India's diversity was very strong. So, what we have here is a kind of patriotic documentary. The C-IVA is a symbol of Indian diversity and a very important civil rights movement, but it seems like this documentary was just made to bring back to life a movie that was made at the wrong time. Overall, this is a very amateurish Bollywood movie. The only reason I give it a 7/10, is because it contains some good footage of the C-IVA.

Yash Chopra is well known for his work with children's films. The power of the kids is seen in many of his films, from films such as Superstars, My Name is Khan to Kal Ho Naa Ho to Animal. In Raisin in the Sun, the youngest child's version of Calcutta has become a sensation of Indian cinema and is sure to be celebrated by the Indian diaspora. It is an artfully crafted film, featuring memorable characters, funny scenarios, and, most importantly, a lesson in humanity. At its core, the film is about the desperate desire to survive. It is narrated through the voice of the protagonist, Shashank, who tries to bring him back to his village from a job. He tells us of his love of music and the resentment of his caste when he returns home to a dreary, dead of the street, caste-ridden town. The film is about hope, despite the many difficulties facing a child in a country like India. The film is about the irrational desire to change the conditions that have made their lives unbearable. The film features the work of almost all the actors. Though, the soundtrack has been a pivotal component in the film, it is the performances of the children that make it a memorable experience. The young actors, whether young or old, do an incredible job of conveying the emotion of the characters. One could question the motivation behind the actions of the child's - but, the boys are especially good in conveying that emotion of hope and rebellion. The animation of the children's faces also helps create a sense of reality. The film takes an interesting path in its narration. It is a musical film, and the voices of the children are recorded with some more extreme measures that would make it very hard for them to speak. The film relies on music and does a good job of holding it together, even when they are at odds with one another. This is in sharp contrast to the other films of Chopra and his style. Overall, a nice and inspirational film that deserves to be watched by everyone. Recommended.

A documentary which looks into the lives of the people from the areas where Ramgopal's 4 train incident took place. The documentary is narrated by a person who was there, and his views on the incident and aftermath, being the closest person who was there. While this is a very personal documentary, it has its moments where it is an eye-opener to see what the people had to go through. One thing that is never really explored is how Ramgopal and his family came to the decision to take the train. The documentary really comes to an end with the character of Vidya (Rani Mukherjee), a woman who lost her daughter in the incident and made her a promise to take the train at all costs. While watching the documentary I was reminded of the documentary 'India and the World'. This was because of the voice-over narration and the documentary itself being a joint venture between the BBC, BBC World Service and the Indian government. While some of the documentary footage looks a bit outdated, I did appreciate the beauty of the countryside of India, which gives a real sense of place. I do think it is interesting to see how India has evolved over the years, with all the change that has taken place in the country since independence. While it is not a documentary of a day in the life of the victims, the documentary does give the viewer a good look at what it is like for the families of the deceased. I would recommend this documentary to anybody who is interested in India, or any other country for that matter.

How do you get to be one of the most prominent figures of the gay and lesbian community without dying a homosexual's death? You don't, you just get an influence, which is something you don't even need. You can get an influence by having money, fame, women, good friends, social status, or even an unshakable affection for the people you love. In other words, you just "get to be a gay". In other words, no one can make a difference without the gay community. There are many reasons for this, including being born gay, having someone you love, being raised by friends, or being in an "elite" organization where you are given special status. But it's the media that is doing it. The lesbian community is a conglomerate of people, organizations, and culture, and the media takes advantage of this by using certain social groups for sensationalizing their existence. There are homosexuals that are either "mentally retarded" or are even born with a physical handicap. However, it is a very small group of people. A gay man is not a homosexual and never will be, period. This documentary shows this reality in a humorous and real way. The film follows the life of two brothers in the gay community, Will and Brad. The brothers are in their early 30's and have been together since childhood. They have been together through thick and thin, and their lives have been extraordinary. The documentary tells their story through a series of interviews and recreations of their old times. Will is the elder, with an average IQ of about 75, and Brad is the younger, with a 30 IQ. They are married and have children. This documentary shows how all three of them came to the same conclusion: "You are not the same." They don't really agree on anything. They just are. Will tries to be the guy that has everything and Brad wants nothing, and they both need something to remind themselves of what they love. This is the crux of the film. They need someone to care for them, someone to hold the important things in their life, something that is special, and that can be cherished and valued. The problem is that they don't really love anyone. They love themselves. This is not a simple way to feel love, but it is the way that they feel love. If they didn't need someone to hold their life together, they wouldn't be together. So, the brothers get some sort of "helper", but instead of one individual, they get two. This is where the documentary falls apart. They are not married, and each of them has their own room. The roommates are not married,

I must say I was not expecting much from this documentary as there were many documentaries that I have seen in the past that were actually very good, but I wasn't expecting it to be this good. I really enjoyed the interviews with the actual writers of the song. It was interesting to hear some of the background story on the songs and who they were supposed to be from. It was also nice to hear some old interviews of other people who were involved in the making of the movie. The songs themselves were very interesting to listen to as they were actually written and recorded while the movie was still in production. I thought it was interesting to see how different the writers of the song felt about the song and the film as a whole. I also thought it was interesting to hear the stories behind some of the other songs that were featured in the movie. The only song that I felt could have been cut from the movie was "We Are Young". The entire scene with the children singing "We Are Young" was really boring and unnecessary. However, the rest of the scenes and song were very enjoyable. The other songs are all very good and very appropriate for the movie, such as the Venerable song "Hey Ronda" which is also from the film. The actors who were featured in the movie were also very good in their roles. I feel that the actors who were featured were also part of the reason why this movie is so good. Overall, I really enjoyed this documentary. It was very interesting and entertaining to hear their stories and the music that was used to create the song. If you want to learn about the making of "Saving Grace", I would highly recommend this documentary.

I thought it was very interesting to hear the reactions of real people to the images shown here. It's not surprising to hear the naysayers, but it was worth hearing people's thoughts. A few remarks about the people interviewed: I know a few of the people in the movie, but I would have loved to have been the one to interview them. I know several people who did not want to appear in the film, and I'm sorry to say that I am one of them. I knew it would be controversial to include people in the film, and I even wanted to be included in it, but I just did not want to stand out. I'm very glad that the movie's makers did not, as I had a hard time seeing any negative reactions to my work. So, I did not want to be the one to be named as a naysayer. I think I'm more qualified than most to judge the film, as I do a lot of research in my life to understand different cultures, and the world in which I live. So, I was a bit hesitant when I heard of the protests of real people against the movie, but after hearing from them, and realizing that I am one of them, I really wanted to be included in the film, which is what the film wanted me to do. A few comments about the images used in the film: I love to see how different countries and cultures look at one another and the relationship between the two. I love it. I thought that the film included a lot of the real people who were involved in the protests, which was interesting. I saw a lot of pictures of U.S. military bases, and I was interested to see what it looked like. I was also interested to see what a young American soldier did in Rwanda. I saw many of the images as references, as I have studied African history, and I think that is what it was about. I saw a lot of pictures of French soldiers, and they were really interesting. I was also fascinated to see what happened when the French troops left the country. The pictures were quite interesting, as they showed what happened in the cities after the French left. I liked the very nice photography. The photographs were very well selected. I would have loved to have been the one to interview more of them. My thanks to the film makers and the crew. It's a good movie. It's like what the movie "Life is Beautiful" was like: it was very nice. Thank you for listening. Thank you for being there for me.

The real problem with Dirty Dancing is that it's not a musical in the classical sense. It has many songs, some of them being catchy, but they're not the driving force of the story. It's not an opera either. I've never seen the film itself, but if it was an opera, it would have to have a longer opera title song. The thing is, though, if this is a musical, the songs should be the driving force. I can imagine that a lot of people who like Dirty Dancing might be put off by the fact that the songs don't fit well with the film. I can imagine a lot of people in America are put off by the fact that the songs are dubbed. However, the one thing that everyone can agree on is that all the songs are excellent. I was especially impressed by the title song "In My Dreams". It's a beautiful song, one of the best songs of the 90's and one of my favorite songs in the world. While it's just a tune, it's more than just a tune. It's more than just a tune that has no real purpose in the film. The lyrics are also great. It's sung by Mariah Carey and it's a very lyrical song. Even though the song is sung with the voice of Mariah Carey, the lyric is still about her. It's very emotional and I think it should get a lot more recognition. The problem is, though, the lyrics are translated into Spanish and that's hard to understand. So people who speak Spanish have to put up with songs that are in English but aren't anything more than a catchy song. While this might be an aspect of the film, it doesn't affect the film as a whole as much as people are put off by the dubbed versions. But overall, this is an excellent movie that makes for a great soundtrack. This is a perfect film for someone who's looking for something that they can get into and dance to. I know that I'm a fan of the film and I like it very much.
