Description Bill Genovese's decade-long journey to unravel the truth about the mythic death and little-known life of his sister, Kitty, who was reportedly stabbed in front of 38 witnesses and became the face of urban apathy. THE WITNESS begins in 2004 when The Times questions its original story: the number of witnesses, what they observed, the number of attacks. None was more affected by the story than Bill. He vowed not to be like the 38, volunteered for Vietnam, and lost both legs. What if Kitty's mythic story is an urban myth? Breaking his family's half-century of silence, Bill seeks to find the truth confronting the witnesses, the killer, their families and his own. THE WITNESS is about bearing witness, loss and forgiveness, and what we owe each other.

This is one of those movies that was a total mess in the previews and didn't do well at the box office. A few months later it was getting released in the US and, quite surprisingly, it is really good. It is a hard-hitting film and it is even more disturbing in the way it portrays the lack of character development in the murders. As a result the viewer has a greater understanding of the murders than they would have before watching it. The book was supposed to be more gripping and more emotionally manipulative. The character development is more difficult and the filmmakers were smart to give us a good deal of the other characters, both of the family and the boyfriend's. Some of the more intense moments, like when the killer rapes his little sister, are well filmed, although they are not really necessary. It is more an "above-the-law" film. While we understand the motivation for the killings, we never get a sense of the trauma that the families are going through. It is hard to believe that there could be such a thing as a family without a sexual dimension. It is also interesting to see the relationship between the killer and the sister in a better light. The acting is good throughout. The young boy is a good actor. I really did like the little boy. He has that kind of emotional edge to him. The director does a good job of making the audience feel what it is like to be on the side of the family and what it would be like to have the murder take place. It is a very disturbing film. I thought it was very well done. The camera work is fine. There is some well done tension in the beginning of the film and some great editing and camera work. The plot is very well done. While the film does lose some steam after the first half hour, it is very compelling. Overall, a really good film.

I'm not sure why this film is being rated so highly. It is an interesting, enjoyable documentary but it doesn't really deserve an Oscar. The main problem I had with it was the lack of plot. The film moves forward and backward in time but it never really explains why. It starts with Arbib's interrogation and ends with the trial. For the rest of the film we're just expected to accept that he was guilty of killing his wife and her lover, but there's no justification for that. Then there's this guy that Arbib had a close relationship with in the late 60s, but he only became friends with him because he was suffering from bipolar disorder. I guess that explains his illogical, emotional breakdown but it doesn't explain why he decided to become a victim of the war. The reason that he's not acting like a psychopath is because he's suffering from depression, which he had no idea he had, but that's not explained in this documentary. He also doesn't tell us anything about his personality change. There's a few good points about the film. For one thing, it's interesting to see how people lived back in the 60s and 70s. Many of them are working in military bases. I really like the footage of these men during training. The film shows how men trained to be assassins and spies. One of the things that I liked the most about the documentary was the last scene. It's really great because it shows how the years and the war changed these men, and how they got to see how wrong they had been and how it actually made them stronger. But the film just falls flat because it doesn't explain why these men went insane, what happened to them, or why they did what they did. In the end, this documentary is an interesting story that's worth seeing, but it just doesn't get the credit it deserves.

Most movies that come out of the European Union end up as screenplays. Few will end up as compelling as 'The Witness'. You'll either love it or hate it. Personally I am a fan of this movie and am recommending it to friends. Why? Because it is so well done. This is what happens when a first-rate filmmaker makes an interesting film. This movie was so interesting that I decided to research its director. I found out that this director was Janusz Kaminski. He was a Polish writer and director who's movies are generally disturbing. And disturbing they were, but also very interesting. 'The Witness' has a strong plot. It's about a young woman named Louise Eris who is being kidnapped by some men who want her for a big 'money-spilling' sheist. As you can see, I am very biased about this movie because it's a fine piece of work and I like the story. I even mentioned it when I wrote my first review for this movie because I didn't like the fact that it didn't have a beginning or an end. It's like the story starts with a beginning and a middle. It's a very interesting story that isn't easy to watch. It was very interesting to me that this story was told from the beginning and then the end. It's not an easy story to watch because you don't know when it's going to end. But it's also not an easy story to write. And a good story is something that must be told. 'The Witness' is a good story. You have to keep on your seat to the end. The acting is not so good in some parts. But it doesn't matter. It's an interesting movie that you have to watch. I give this movie a 8/10. I hope you watch it and see it as a good movie.

I'd give the movie a 9, but I'm going to give it an 8 because the movie wasn't perfect. It's too dark, there are too many characters, the story could have been a little better, but overall it's an interesting, interesting documentary that I would recommend to anyone who has an interest in the drug war. The movie is so depressing, I'm not sure if it would be appropriate for anyone younger than 13, but it does have a lot of good points, including the few interviews with people who have been in prison for long periods of time. I'm guessing that the movie would not be a very good piece of propaganda because it's the drug war, and drug war advocates usually do not want to be portrayed as evil. But the movie is entertaining, and the documentary has some interesting points, including a guy who was originally arrested and convicted of murder, but was convicted of something different. It's hard to say whether or not the movie is about the drug war, the war in general, or just about drug addiction, but I guess I'd say it's about the drug war. I can't really say whether or not it's better than documentaries like "War on Drugs" or "Inside Job", but it's very interesting and it's very important to me, because I've had my own experiences with drugs, both as a child and as an adult, and I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't be as disturbed by it as some people who were in the military or the armed forces. I think a lot of people in the military have experienced some kind of drug addiction, and it's pretty easy for them to use drugs because they're not supposed to be doing anything else. So there are people in the military who are going to be exposed to a lot of drugs in their lifetime. There are some people in the armed forces who are going to be exposed to a lot of drugs in their lifetime. It's important to keep in mind that some of these people may have been exposed to drugs when they were in the armed forces. It's not that the military is making a propaganda film about drug use. But people have had experiences with drugs, and they would like to have something to remember. If you've been on a drug, if you've had some kind of experience with drugs, then I think it's very important that you remember these things. I think the movie is a good representation of what the drug war looks like, and that's it's very depressing

The book is a very powerful, dark, and disturbing experience that has to be experienced. Its effect on me was more than just a few moments of empathy for the characters and their torment. The film is meant to be dramatic. As an adaption, I found that much of the effect of the film was taken away. The film was brutal in its tone. The film had the advantage of the majority of its scenes happening in black and white. It felt like I was watching a black and white film in a saturated color film. But if I were to go into the book, I found that it had more style. The difference between the book and the film is that the book was a beautiful piece of art. The film had a rough rough, disturbing, and dark, color, harsh tone, that just felt like I was watching a much worse movie than the book. For me, I can't find that enough. I will say that there was some dialogue in the book that the film missed. It was funny, and then the next line, it would have been hilarious. But it didn't come across that way. Also, it didn't come across that the dialogue was in some terrible voice-over. It didn't feel forced. The film didn't capture the mood and feel of the book. It lacked the dramatic quality of the book. This was not a perfect adaptation. I did find the book to be a little too dark. I do believe that this film was a good effort. It did capture the tone of the book and the first chapter, but I believe it didn't capture the whole story. The actors did an admirable job of acting. I did believe that the film did capture some scenes in the book. But for me, it wasn't enough.

A harrowing, suspenseful, thoroughly fascinating account of how the world's leading scientist, Carl Sagan, failed to come to the aid of an innocent man from the very beginning of his research career. The information he gave them for a book he was writing on the most advanced known aspects of the human mind is enough to make anyone skeptical of what he was actually doing. What we are given in the movie is the very disturbing and difficult, almost painful, case of Dr. Robert May, who is wrongly accused of being a child molester and is essentially locked up for 27 years in an insane asylum. It is a most disturbing and inhumane story of a man whose life has been destroyed and yet who still has the ability to write, just to keep his sanity and to keep his memory alive. He goes through a long, torturous torture and emotional attack that is at times so painful and so sad that it is almost a miracle that he survives and it is a miracle that he can write. To many people it might appear that this man has had his mental health destroyed by the actions of the public and his own government. But for Carl Sagan and those that have known him personally, he has had a very difficult and long, and at times a very painful, life. The movie is so powerful, so disturbing and so painful to watch that we can almost feel the pain in our own souls. For a very few minutes, I was absolutely terrified. I sat there waiting for the news on TV for Dr. May to be released from his insane asylum. I was waiting for the release of his innocent, innocent, innocent, innocent wife, his children, and of course for the release of his baby. We are subjected to the screams of the child as he is killed. The baby's cries have a more powerful effect on me than anything I have ever experienced in a movie. The only reason I gave it an 8 was for the music. It was so intense and moving that it would have been unplayable had it not been for the music. I really have no idea how to review the movie. I feel like I've watched an extremely powerful, sadistic, emotionally intense movie and it will stay with me for a very long time. The movie is so strong and so painful that it will remain with me for a very long time. I'm not even going to talk about the big revelations that Carl Sagan was able to come up with. It's just so graphic and so disturbing that I don't want

There have been too many films about the drug scene and the damage it can have on families, friends and loved ones. This film takes a different angle on the subject. It is a look into a life from the perspective of the main character, a mentally ill man in his 40s. Despite being asked to give his perspective on the drug scene, he chooses to give it a different perspective. What we see is how much is being wasted on drugs. From the perspective of the main character, we see that he is doing what he loves, his art. He is drawing the faces of drug users, shooting the landscapes and writing about the streets. It is an eye-opening film and is at the same time very moving. The camera work is very intriguing as it shows the world through the eyes of the main character. He has a strong sense of perception and this helps him to appreciate and understand the life he lives. The camera work also creates an effective dialogue between him and his mother. It is obvious that this is not the usual mother and son relationship. They talk in the same way and the way that they talk gives the viewer an idea of what they think of the world. The performances by the two leads are very powerful and give the film a realistic feel. These performances are nothing short of outstanding. The way that the main character gives a detailed narration on his own life is very intriguing. He is a very nice guy and shows no malice towards his fellow drug users. It is his only weakness in his life and his loss is hard to bear. Although he is writing about his drug experiences, he is also creating art. In many ways, he is doing what he loves and it is his only outlet in life. The question that I have for the film is this: Why did he choose to do this and not that? The answers given by his mother are very contradictory to the statements he gives on the phone. In the end, I could not help but feel the disappointment in the main character's life. His mother seems to have a difficult time with her relationship with her son and I am sure that many other mothers have a difficult relationship with their sons and daughters. The film is touching and incredibly informative and has a good message. I strongly recommend this film. 8/10.

I had the pleasure of attending a screening of the brilliant Documentary, "The Witness" at the Philadelphia Film Festival last weekend. The film opens with two friends, Nick and Martin, on the road to collect evidence in a murder case in which Nick is convicted. They both knew each other from their high school days and for a while there were almost inseparable. As the years go by, they break up but as the years go by, they begin to look at each other in a different way. What they have that they didn't know each other had is the certainty that everything that goes wrong in their lives, even the smallest things, is a product of choices made by other people. That certainty is what makes this film so powerful. This film will be impossible to forget. The camera work is brilliant and gives us an immersive feeling. This is not just a documentary, but a story that is the journey of a man who felt he could not be alone. He grew to feel that everyone he came in contact with was in some way responsible for his own fate. I didn't see this film as a critical view of the criminal justice system, I saw it as a man who took responsibility for his choices and who wants to be part of the solution. The fact that he wanted to see a conviction overturned and to feel the frustration of not being believed is what made the film so powerful. The Documentary has a beautiful feel to it. I was very impressed with how they set it up, it feels real and comfortable to watch. The film isn't a question of if they will go to prison. The question is what will they do to see that justice is served. This film was shot by a team that is comprised of veterans of the George W. Bush administration and it gives the audience an insight into how the government views the criminal justice system. For someone that isn't familiar with the criminal justice system, this film will show how flawed it is and how it can often be used as a tool to "enforce the law." This film shows how far down the line the criminal justice system can go when it tries to change the way we think about it. The documentary is extremely strong in its opinion of the criminal justice system and I urge anyone who is planning on seeing this film to not be scared. The fact that this film is about a man who took responsibility for his choices and the decisions that he has made in his life, it shows that what we see and believe is not always what is true
