In recent years there have been a number of documentaries that have attempted to put together a detailed chronicle of the major issues facing the African American community, and a number of those have produced notable films. The result is that a number of these documentaries are very good and well worth watching. The problem is that there have been some films that are poor and fall short of their potential. Last year, there was "The Hurricane" which, in my opinion, was terrible. But, of course, this was by far the worst of the bunch. This year, there has been "The People's Court" and the answer to my question as to which of the two, I liked better, is a resounding NO. It is simply that the films did not delve into the larger issues of the time and were not very informative. The People's Court, on the other hand, examines issues from the perspective of the Black political community. There are many issues that are addressed but not discussed. The film focuses on how Black political and civil rights organizations, for example, were able to get an injunction against the use of the F-word in public schools. However, this injunction is completely ignored by the film. The film spends a great deal of time on the case of the Reverend Willie Wilson and his son. Willie Wilson was accused of murdering a police officer. The police officer, by his own admission, was a "nut job." The testimony from the policeman and the family of the deceased, including Willie Wilson, proved the officer's innocence. The story of Willie Wilson, which is the heart of the documentary, is discussed in great detail and yet the film does not go into detail about how this case was handled. Also, the film spends very little time on the question of whether the civil rights of the Blacks were being systematically violated. The film does, however, make some interesting statements about how Black politicians have been doing their best to create a majority White population. However, this discussion is never explored. The film did do a good job of examining the way the Black community has become more integrated into the public sphere, but I did not understand why the Black political community had become so political. The political leaders, like Martin Luther King, are given very little to do and are left to handle the job of political activism themselves. It seems that there is a concerted effort to reach out to the White community and force the Black community to choose sides. As a result, many Black political leaders are now making statements that are highly questionable. As I said, this is a very weak documentary. Although it was very well done, the film was a little weak in the way it was handled. I would recommend that people watch "The People's Court" instead of "The Hurricane."

In a quiet little town in Illinois, a group of boys are still having trouble with their female teachers. Although the boys have been acting like whiny brats, one of them, Bob, is actually a really nice kid. He doesn't have many friends, but he does hang out with other kids his age, and that's where his love of books comes in. He starts reading and writing about books like 'The Catcher in the Rye', 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', 'The Emperor's New Clothes', and 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'. His friends start talking about what books he should read. When he's asked to read one of his favorite books, 'American History X', he doesn't have any interest. However, when his friend Kevin takes him to read 'Lolita' by Vladimir Nabokov, he has the urge to read the book. The reason for his desire to read the book is that he was raised in a middle-class family, with a loving mother and an older sister. He feels that he must try to understand what it was like to live in that environment. After reading the book, he begins to get a sense of the family dynamics. He is deeply affected by his experiences with his father, and how his family treated him, and what he learned from reading the book. 'American History X' is one of those books that is really important for the young men and women who read it. The book is part of an art history class at school. In the book, Marilyn Monroe writes about her relationship with her father, and what happened between the two of them. One of the key themes of the book is the idea that the family structure matters. The book deals with the idea that a strong family is the most important thing in life. Because in a strong family, there are rules, and the people know how to live together. It also deals with the idea that love and relationship are everything. One of the biggest themes of the book is that one shouldn't hide behind others' opinions. He should defend his own opinions, and should keep himself open to all opinions, even those that he doesn't like. He should not think of others as being out of his league. He should think of himself as being able to defend himself, because he has the power to do so. He should be able to convince other people of his views. In the book, Marilyn Monroe uses the idea that the family structure is more important than his own opinions. He should be able to have the support of his father, his mother, and his sister, and should be able to defend himself. It is one of the greatest books I have ever read. I highly recommend reading the book.

I agree with most of the reviews, that this is one of the greatest documentaries ever made. It's not just the amazing story of gun-ownership, it's the story of gun control. This is a documentary about how "the gun lobby" has infiltrated all levels of government and has managed to institute gun control laws that are absolutely ridiculous and entirely irrelevant to protecting the safety of Americans. The film begins in 1969 with the introduction of the AR-15 rifle. During the 1980's, the AR-15 was redesigned and introduced as the "modern" rifle for use in the new millennium. Throughout the 80's, the AR-15 was not used for killing, but was instead used in suicide missions to "avoid capture". The rifle is finally re-designated as the "modern" assault rifle for use in the new millennium. The AR-15 is used by millions of Americans every day for killing and injuring people. Even today, it is used by people who do not live in rural areas. This is the story of a powerful lobby that has convinced the American people that the "modern" assault rifle is the answer to everything, and the story of the many politicians who have bought into it. The film goes through the history of the AR-15, its introduction, its popularity and its decline. The movie covers both sides of the argument. It is not one sided. If you are interested in gun control, or if you are interested in how powerful the lobby has become, then you should see this movie. Otherwise, this is a great documentary.

I've read the book, "The Last Days of Gloria Vanderbilt," but I've never seen the movie. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed this documentary. At one point, one of the main characters - a painter named Bruce - says something along the lines of, "The only reason I stayed in the U.S.A. was because my wife and I could all take vacations." This quote is also the first one in the movie. This was the only time I saw the movie that this quote was used. It was a very entertaining movie. The director, Anneka, did an excellent job of showing the effect that the aftermath of the 1950s Depression had on the lives of the Vanderbilt family, and how the business went down the drain. The movie's focus was on the Vanderbilt's long distance relationship, which was quite intense, as it could be with any couple who had a long distance relationship. I thought that the way the movie was made, it gave the movie a much more personal feel than many other documentaries. Anneka's documentary showed her as someone who was very caring and honest, and she even took some risks. She had the courage to show her true colors in this documentary. She also showed her life with some tears in her eyes, as she looked at the life of the Vanderbilt's. I thought the actors and actresses in the movie did a great job in portraying their characters. In particular, Amanda Neuwirth was very good as Patricia. She showed how this woman was brought up in a strict household, and how she was raised to believe that she was the one to do the dishes. Her performance was very believable, as she showed how she really felt. After watching this movie, I think that it's quite possible that Patricia Vanderbilt would have made the transition to the point where she could have married someone other than Bruce. Patricia Vanderbilt was not as charitable as she wanted to be, and I think she could have had her own career after the divorce. I think that it was great to see how the people involved with the movie have dealt with their experiences. They've gone on to become successful. They've gone on to have relationships with their children. One of the main characters, Pamela, changed careers, but it was not because of the divorce, but because she couldn't afford to take care of her child. I think that it was a great movie, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in this topic. It's a great way to get a deeper look into the life of Patricia Vanderbilt.
