There are only a handful of documentaries I can recall that left me scratching my head. This was one of them. The movie was great, as it should have been. It doesn't leave you wondering what you just saw, it just leaves you thinking. I have never felt so conflicted and depressed after seeing a movie. That's what this movie is about. Heartbreak. It wasn't a comedy, nor did it feature a comedic or romantic subplot. It was something you didn't really expect at all. If you have seen the movie, you will see it for what it is. But if you didn't, don't bother. Because that's not it. It's something else. A compelling story that is painful to watch. You can't explain it to anyone because it's something that you will never be able to explain. One thing that surprised me about this movie was how much it went into detail about the band, and the performance of them in that particular concert. And by that I mean how it played through most of the songs, almost from start to finish. Very interesting stuff. Also interesting was the way the band's manager worked, and how he took his band into the studio. Even with all of this material, the story went too slow. There were a couple of points where I started to roll my eyes. It was like you knew where it was going, and you thought it was going to end, but it just kept going, and it kept going. I didn't find the story to be in any way the least bit realistic. This is just something you can't explain, and you can't explain it. It's just like the stories you can't explain, so you can't explain it either. However, I did like the way it ended. You know what, I think they're all going to die anyway. Maybe, just maybe, they'll all end up dead because of the way life is, and they'll all just die together. This isn't something that you can explain, and you can't explain it, but that's what I think is going to happen. I was expecting it to be more shocking, and I'm glad they didn't get that "Oscar Winning" ending. That's probably going to be my only complaint about this movie. I think that I will watch this again in a year or two to see if I still understand what I just saw. I did watch it once and it was terrible, so maybe I'll just leave this here for another year, and that'll be that.

Absolutely astonishing. Brilliant. How can you not love this doc? What a well made film. I can't believe anyone could call this a "doc", or a "doc-essay". To be called that, I am truly grateful. I've heard about this documentary so much, and the one I am most excited about is the one on the McLaren F1. However, this is a great film on so many levels, and it is only the beginning. From the very first moments, it starts with a really deep narrative that will keep you on your toes. It also is a great story about what it was like to be a part of this amazing race. It was truly incredible. But, it was only the beginning. A lot of this story is incredibly deep, and the fact that it is told with such a casual tone, makes it seem a lot more realistic and realistic than you would expect. Very well done. But, it is not only a story about what was going on, it's also about the people involved in it. I think that's one of the greatest aspects of the film. And the way the interviewees spoke about their memories of the McLaren F1, it really shows the way that it really was like to be a part of it. I think the last 15 minutes were very interesting. This is the part of the film that really excites me. It shows what really went down at Le Mans, and what really happened on the race track. I think it was a great film and I think it was very well done. I really hope that it is shown on PBS some day, and it's also very interesting to see how the new people are starting to be involved in this story. If you are into cars, or racing, this film is definitely a must-see. I would suggest that if you are looking for something that will keep you entertained and keep you intrigued, then you should definitely check out this film. It really is a must see.

It's not often you come across a film that truly leaves you in awe. For sure, anyone who has seen in the last few months of documentaries and reads more about life will know that the main goal of this film is to inspire you. I believe it's a really good film. There are many good points to it, the main ones are: How we look at people. What we want to know. What we want to know about ourselves. And the world in general. The facts. The true, the not-so-true. How to react to things. The emotions. The need to reach. What we want to do. How to reach it. How to make it. The ways we can reach it. The ways we don't reach it. How to get there. And more. You have to keep in mind that this film is a real journey that we all take and every one of us has to learn how to reach it. If you are not used to it, you'll find a lot of points that are obvious but still important to know. It's good to have a background in many different things. So it makes it easier to absorb this film. I personally think that it's a very good way to learn and be a better person. It really is, especially if you think about it. I was also really surprised to see this film received so many positive comments from people. Even more surprising was the response from my friends. They thought the same thing. I also think it's a very good film to share with others. You don't need to have a clear idea of what you're about to see. You can easily see that a lot of people think the same thing. It's also very easy to get lost in this film and forget the fact that you're watching a documentary. It's actually quite pleasant, in the end. It's actually one of the few films that makes you want to move forward. One of the best ones I've seen in a long time.

The self-styled comic book editor, Jerry, who is trying to make his way in Hollywood, has produced three critically-acclaimed movies: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon, Help!, and Identity. In addition to their technical merits, the movies are examples of his artistry. Jerry is a fascinating man, who would be happy to collaborate with a professional editor or director. However, he cannot be moved to do so because he is so immersed in his own creation. When Jerry's latest movie, "Zach Galligan," comes out on September 21, the film will be screening at the Cinemagic conference in Chicago. He is speaking with Director Rob Goodman (AKA JJ Pettit), Screenwriter Billy Martin, and Producer Tracy Davis. It was clear that Jerry was ready to discuss his stories. His story of a future soap opera turned into a movie, "Shallow Hal," had its premiere in the New York Film Festival. In addition to being a memorable film, it is a true story about an innovative director who uses documentary as a tool to tell a story. Jerry sees how documentary film makers have the opportunity to tell stories that transcend the television screen. This movie will be screening in a specially designated area at the Chicago Cinemagic Conference on September 21. Anyone is welcome to attend the screening. If you would like to discuss your experiences with Jerry and his work, please email him. Jerry and his supporters will be in attendance at the screening. Please bring chairs.

A documentary on the man of the hour, Orville Redenbacher. Orville Redenbacher (1907-1980) was a world-class sportsman of the 1920s and 30s, a huge figure in American society and also a prominent figure in Nazi Germany. He was a Nazi sympathizer and Nazi sympathizers like himself were also well-educated and well-connected in both business and politics. In all, he was the largest and most important of the few dozen or so professional Nazi athletes to enter the U.S. during the 1920s. Many of these athletes became very successful in their careers, but Redenbacher was still a small-time hustler, mainly in a single-minded pursuit of his (and his mother's) favorite sport, football. The story of Redenbacher, as told by special project director Allan Alexander, is a fascinating one, and it is a pleasure to see Mr. Redenbacher in all of his glory, including his high school and college years, and also his close encounters with Hitler, Heinrich Himmler and the Nazi Party. The movie has plenty of clips from his early playing and his World War I sportscasting appearances, and also some of the key moments of his life, like the story of his father's conversion to Judaism. But the real strength of this documentary comes from the fact that it is a deeply human story of a man whose entire career was dedicated to the highest ideals of Nazi Germany and whose life was dominated by the Nazi Party. The most poignant and moving moments are also when Redenbacher's love of his football game is contrasted with his intense hatred of Jews. It is a beautifully written and made film, but also a powerful reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust. As with any good film, the telling of the story needs to be woven with the story of the people who lived it. Alexander does a very fine job of showing the reverence with which Redenbacher and others in his circle, like Dietrich Bichinger, his sister Elizabeth, his father, and others, adored their favorite sport. And he does a terrific job of showing the racial and religious bigotry that was endemic to Nazi Germany. And he also does a fine job of showing how Redenbacher's determination and courage were overwhelmed by his loss of the Jewish faith. I'm not sure I can ever truly appreciate a film without a strong story, but this documentary is particularly compelling because of its very strong, natural narrative. And Alexander does a wonderful job of taking his subject on his own personal journey of discovery and redemption. I have read a lot of criticism of this documentary. That is understandable. But I really do think that the film is very much worth watching, especially if you enjoy documentaries or sports films. I will watch it again.
