This documentary was directed by John Ford, who also directed "The Deer Hunter" and "Roots" as well as "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly." There is a lot of the stuff that is familiar in this movie. There is the slow, deliberate pace, the lack of fireworks. The focus is still on the interviews with the families of those who died in the blazes. But the focus is also on some of the things that were different about the two tragedies, or, more specifically, the things that were different about the victims. Most of the focus is on the horror of the first event, and the sheer insanity of the second event. This is why we have to watch the movie twice because there are some parts that are very difficult to watch. And the family members talk about their loss a lot more than the families of the victims. So it is a lot more difficult to watch. Also, it is interesting to see the fact that a lot of the people interviewed are from the state of Tennessee. The victims are from all over the country, but there is a certain accent that is strong in the state of Tennessee. It's an interesting side note that people often tell you how much they loved the victims and how sad they were for them. I think that the people who were interviewed in the documentary are really good people. They have a lot of compassion for the victims. The movie is not perfect. It could have been better if they had focused more on the interviews with the families of the victims. Some of the interviews are just too painful to watch. For instance, they talk about the FBI's attitude toward the fact that they did not find the perpetrator. This is an issue that still doesn't seem to be solved. It's also a lot more depressing than I thought it was going to be. I have seen people that I know of in similar situations that are happy with the outcome. I think the goal of the documentary was to show the people that are here at this memorial, and the people that loved the victims, that it's not a terrible tragedy that happened. They were just in a different place than most people were at the memorial. They were not at the place where they lost their loved ones. There was a lot of pain and a lot of grief that the victims were experiencing at the time. It's not a horrible thing to be at the place where you lose a loved one. I think that the focus of the documentary was to show the people that lost their loved ones, and show them that it's not a terrible thing to be at that place. That's probably the most important thing to me about this documentary. I think that's why people were so moved by this movie. They felt that this was a story about a terrible tragedy. It's not a good thing to lose your loved ones to a fire. But at the same time, there is a story that is important about that tragedy. It's also important to show that a tragedy like this is not just something that happens once in a lifetime. It happens very often. I think that the documentary was a very good one. It was a very, very good documentary. It was also very well produced. It's not a movie that I would see twice. It's a very good documentary. I think that this was a very important documentary. It was very well done. I don't think it was as good as "The Deer Hunter," but it was still a very good documentary. I think that people should see this documentary at least once. It's worth seeing.

A fascinating documentary, somewhat akin to the grand old tradition of "going underground". The late, great William Randolph Hearst was one of those who saw the light of day on television and made the most of it. One can argue that he was a bit too self-serving, but the fact that he would talk about "the truth" and how important it was, he had to be doing something right. Regardless, the Hearst dynasty is now dead and the "truth" has been replaced by the image of the businessman who was at the top of his game but had to bend to the winds of public opinion. When he started his "independent" newspapers, he was taking the heat and being misunderstood by many of the people who he was supposed to be speaking for. The people of the 60's were left with a huge hole in their pocketbooks, a huge debt to Wall Street and the corporations that were still "out there" on their way up. A huge amount of "good" corporate names were walking away with huge payoffs. It was clear that the Hearst dynasty was in trouble and "independent" journalism, as good as it was, was just a palliative. If only there were some people who knew what was really going on, could lead us to the truth. The long-time director of the Hearst papers, Dick Utz, has done a very interesting job in looking at Hearst's last months. He has collected all the important documents and has given them to a documentary team that are going to do the research and present them in a way that will give the public what they want to hear. It's a good film and deserves to be seen by people who are interested in the Hearst story, but don't need to be told all at once. One of the documentaries I have seen that compares favorably to "The Hottest August" is "The Empire Strikes Back" by Oliver Stone, a good movie that is also about the Hearst empire and the consequences it had on the American public. It is a good movie with a very clear and realistic presentation of the Hearst legacy.
