Description Joseph Pulitzer spoke of "fake news" over 100 years ago and fought the dangers that the suppression of news had for a democracy long before our present threats to press freedom.

I attended this movie at the "Soldiers at War" exhibit at the 2003 Seattle International Film Festival. This is the first "Vacation" of a film festival and the first documentary of its kind in a while. To say that this film is not for everyone would be a little bit of an understatement. It may be too dark and disturbing for some viewers. I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy and care of this movie. There are few films I have seen that have had such a profound effect on me in such a short time. It seems to be a lifelong theme of this film. I found myself in tears about halfway through the film. I could feel myself struggling to remain composed throughout the film. It is hard to describe what the film is about. However, I will say that this film is one of the most honest portrayals I have ever seen on film. The filmmakers of this film have put in a lot of time and effort into this film and it shows. I do not want to give away the film too much as it is an incredible story and I would be a hypocrite if I did. I feel that this film is a wonderful story of how a documentary film maker was able to provide a one of a kind perspective of the Vietnam War. The director and the other filmmakers who attended the film have done a wonderful job. I hope that this film is released on DVD soon. I will be buying the DVD when it is released. I would also like to see this film be available to view in theatres. I know that this film has been overshadowed by the Oscar buzz around "American Beauty." However, this film deserves the attention it has received. I would recommend this film to anyone who has not yet seen it.

The history of the Pulitzer Prize is so varied. It was established in 1880, by the then-unmarried, but then very young Andrew Carnegie, who wanted to use it to award people for the good they do in the community. For the next 40 years, it was usually the writer of a popular novel, or a poet, or a novelist, or a playwright. In the early 1900s, it was mainly the composer of popular songs, or the actor in a famous movie. And, finally, in the 1950s, it was almost exclusively the winner of the Best Picture Oscar, and that's how it's always been. Over the years, the winning songwriter has changed from one decade to the next. And the winning actor has changed from one decade to the next. So, it's not surprising that there were many different types of winners in the '50s and '60s. But, now, there are now three types of winners: the songwriter, the actor, and the Oscar. The Oscar of the last few years, though, has really been about a one-man show. Or, to be more precise, it's about a one-man show in two performances. And, that's what I found to be the most surprising. And that is, that the winner of the Oscar for the Best Song in 2015, an utterly un-musical, self-consciously dramatic, self-penned poem by Christopher Reeves, was actually the most visually rich, brilliant, beautiful, and utterly gripping. The other two were written by the same writer, and the Oscar was handed to Christopher Nolan's spectacularly brilliant Batman film, the Academy Award for Best Picture of 2015, and then it was handed to David O. Russell's impressive The Fighter, the Best Picture of 2015, and then it was handed to the Academy Award for Best Director. But, it was an incredible achievement to win the Oscar for the Best Director. It's a big deal. It's the kind of award you do not only for the person's lifetime achievements, but for the person's entire career. And Christopher Nolan was the winner of the Oscar in 2015. Not for his lifetime achievements, but for his lifetime achievements, for the tremendous body of work that he has created. Nolan has created an epic film. Nolan's Batman film, while having some flaws, is one of the best movies I've ever seen. It's so much fun to watch. Nolan's Batman film is a big success. It's a big success for Nolan and the film industry. It's a huge success for the Academy. And, I'm certain, Nolan is going to win another Oscar for the Best Director in the 2016 election. And, of course, Nolan will be one of the biggest winners of the awards this year. I know that from my first watch of the movie. The Nolan Batman film is one of the most brilliant films I've ever seen. It's one of the best movies I've ever seen. It's the kind of film that makes you think and it makes you think about the issues that
