The Judge is a documentary on Judge Roy Moore's candidacy for the United States Senate in Alabama, on the eve of the first of the Alabama special election for that seat. The film features interviews with women who say that Moore sexually assaulted or harassed them when they were teenagers, Moore's own ex-wife, and his former assistant and staff at the Alabama Supreme Court. The film is done in a serious, factual style, but also in a way that the viewer is just as much in the room as Moore is, and so that he or she feels as if they are there. The film runs almost 2 hours, but it is not overly long. The subject is so serious that it becomes difficult to know how to end it. The movie is a bit slow to begin with, but in the end it is an engrossing and thought-provoking story. It is a story about the real-life real-life events that the characters in this film, including Moore, tell. As much as the film is a story of a bad politician trying to win elections, the film is also a story about how human beings can be both good and bad. The film tells the story of how an Alabama Supreme Court justice, Roy Moore, rose to the top of the Alabama Supreme Court to become a respected and powerful judge. Moore is trying to re-write the state's law as it applies to the state's largest city, Birmingham, to protect the poor and disenfranchised. But he is doing this with the support of powerful people, including Alabama's Governor, Robert Bentley, and a well-funded campaign led by his wife, Kayla Moore. While it is true that Moore was elected to the Alabama Supreme Court on the strength of his conservative views, the film also shows how Moore has become a powerful, divisive figure in Alabama politics. In Alabama, there are only two parties; the GOP and the Democrats. Moore is trying to get elected to the Alabama Supreme Court and to the Governor's office, but he is also being pushed by powerful people and powerful organizations to bring down the state's largest city, Birmingham. Moore is going to force the city to do something that it is not willing to do. In the end, Moore's re-write of the law could change Birmingham in ways that Alabama has not seen in a very long time. However, Moore is doing it at the expense of the rest of the state. Moore is trying to force the state to do something that it is not willing to do. This is not a partisan issue in Alabama. It is a real issue for Alabama citizens, and it is a real issue for Alabama. While Moore is trying to win elections in Alabama, it is also Moore who is trying to be a public figure in Alabama. He has become a public figure in Alabama, and he is not going to let anyone who tries to get him out of the way of his goals succeed. Moore is a man of a deeply-rooted, deeply-rooted, deeply-rooted and deeply-rooted belief system. He is not just a politician who wants to make Alabama great again. He is a man who wants to remake Alabama in a way that he sees fit. The film ends with Moore talking to one of his supporters. Moore tells the supporter that he will not allow the removal of monuments from the Alabama state capitol to take away from the country's strength and greatness. "We're never going to stop fighting," Moore tells the supporter. "We're never going to stop fighting." Moore is a man who is going to continue fighting, and he is not going to be defeated. Alabama voters will have to decide whether or not Moore wins the election.

I've been watching documentaries on this subject for years and have always found it a very difficult subject to cover and I always had a "too many topics to cover" syndrome. However, I did not expect to come away with any real enjoyment from this movie. Instead, I was shocked by what I was watching. I was moved to tears and so was the entire audience. I don't want to spoil any parts of the movie, but it will probably surprise most people to know that I have a background in journalism and worked on several investigative stories on the tobacco industry. I have not worked on a documentary on this subject in many years, but this is by far the most thorough, up-to-date, and fascinating documentary I have ever seen. It is one of the most gripping films I have seen in a long time and it should be required viewing in all journalism courses in the United States. I have been a fan of Michael Moore since he became famous in the late eighties and was immediately impressed by the documentary he did on the Bush Administration's cover-up of the U.S. involvement in the Iraq War. So I was skeptical when I saw that he was going to tackle the topic of the tobacco industry and what it's true effect was on the lives of those who were addicted. However, I was not disappointed. The film is extremely compelling. It is not the type of documentary I will watch repeatedly. However, I will watch it several times because it is such a gripping story. The film does not come out and make the claim that cigarettes are bad for you. It simply presents the scientific evidence that there is a link between smoking and cancer and that this link has been demonstrated over and over again. It also presents evidence that smoking does not lead to cardiovascular disease or diabetes. It simply presents the evidence. What I liked most about this film was that it used very few images. Many of the images were static. These images are very moving and extremely powerful. The strength of the film is in its narration. The way it tells the story is so powerful and compelling that the audience is left with a sense of hope. The "smoking" images, for example, are powerful because they show the effects of the nicotine in the cigarette on the body. One of the most powerful images in the film is a single cigarette burning a hole in the side of a young boy's face. This is not a "scientific" image, but is a true image. We know the truth about smoking, but the depiction of this event as a tragic accident and a miracle of God is powerful. As the film progressed, the narration became more and more powerful as it had more and more images. It was like we were watching a video tape being made. I felt so moved and so strongly convinced of the truth of what I was witnessing. The film does not make a claim or present a solution to the problem of smoking. However, it does suggest that there are some things that can be done to reduce the damage and to reduce the number of people that smoke. This is not a condemnation of cigarettes, but a warning that there is a connection between smoking and many of the negative health effects we have seen in our history. I am not a smoker and I don't think I will ever be a smoker, but I did not find the film too depressing or depressing to watch. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a powerful, moving, and thought-provoking documentary that will help inform them of the effects that smoking has on people and the value of quitting. This is a must-see movie and I can't recommend it enough.
