The History of a Generation is one of the best films of 2016. I have seen it twice in the past few weeks and each time I have been moved by its inspiring portrayal of the lives of many artists. The subject matter is one that gets mentioned in the conversation of contemporary art, but the main characters and the subjects they deal with are so different. The film begins with the music of John Coltrane, and progresses to Beethoven, Mozart, and Dvorak. The film continues in the same fashion as the story progresses. The film is truly inspiring. The audience is shown the history of music in a way that does not go over the heads of the average viewer. The film includes artists who may not be as well-known as the subject, but they are truly worthy of being shown. The film portrays the struggles of a woman who has had many personal struggles throughout her life. She was treated poorly by the people around her, and the effects of that treatment have been her life. The film does not gloss over the hardships of her life, but the effect of those hardships on her. As she travels the world, she is a beacon of hope for many, and it is these moments of triumph and healing that the audience is so moved by. The film is inspirational because it shows that an artist can change lives in ways that they never could have imagined. This is what the film does best: it educates the audience about the world of music. I will not give away the ending because it is one of the most powerful and dramatic endings I have ever seen. The audience will be so moved by the ending, they will never want to miss it.

A brilliant documentary on the life and work of Gabrielle Carteris, the acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer of '70s electro-pop. You'll be riveted to your seat from start to finish, and you'll never look at your watch the same way again. Gabrielle Carteris was not only a great singer/songwriter, she was a fantastic film maker. Her music video director of "Love Of My Life" (a.k.a. "Pump It Up"), a 1972 video about the release of her single "That's Life", can be seen as a modern day version of the legend she was so closely linked with. This is only one of several movies she produced, and I don't think it's really fair to call them her movies, or to call them her films, because she wrote and directed them. She's more of a musical director. I am not saying this is a bad thing. It's simply that, for all of the good things about her movies, there are a lot of things about her music videos which make them go horribly wrong. For example, the first one she directed, "Stay," a very popular video for "Tonight I'll be Loved" by Marvin Gaye, looks like an excellent montage of songs, but is actually just a montage of shots. I was particularly disappointed by this. When you're a movie director and you're putting together a montage, it's important to be able to identify the song titles, and to actually follow the movement of the camera in relation to the song titles. Otherwise, you are just pulling shots out of the air, and at times, it's very hard to tell what the camera is actually seeing. Gabrielle Carteris, like so many directors before her, didn't seem to know how to tell the difference between shots that were actually meant to be shot at the same time as the song titles, and shots where the camera is moving so quickly the viewer is never really sure what's going on. So instead of being able to tell, Gabrielle made the director look stupid. When she put her name on the end of the "Stay" video, I thought, "Wow, that's the new director!" And that is what I think, she's the new director. I think she is the new director. The other problem with her music videos is that the camera is often at the wrong place in the song titles. For example, "I Am Loving You" is about the sexual relationship between Marvin Gaye and Doris Day, but the song titles for

There's a scene in the movie that should have been shot in black and white. A section of the movie where the family is discussing what their son did in the civil war, and the uncle brings up how the movie "Moves By Days" was a great movie. I thought about it while watching this documentary, and I felt like I was watching a black and white version of that scene. There are other scenes where the camera seems to be rolling all over the place. I felt like the editing was just plain odd. The movie is shot like an old-fashioned movie. The scenes are well shot and the actors are all very good. The music, even though it is performed by different musicians, is very effective. This is not the type of music that I can find anywhere else, and it really helps make the movie stand out. I wish the director would have gotten to the point of explaining more about the history of the Civil War and other world events. I was expecting the movie to be an examination of racism, but I ended up not getting that. I just didn't understand how one man could take a life of another man just because they were black. I also would have liked to know more about why it was that the Union Army didn't want to keep the slaves. I can understand that they were fighting to keep slavery, but the Union soldiers seem to have been fighting to keep the Union intact. I also thought it would have been nice to see the rest of the Civil War, and see how the Union soldiers were fighting for the rights of black Americans. Overall, this is a very interesting movie that should be more widely available to the general public. It is well worth watching.
