Excellent and interesting documentary. The documentary covers his experiences and musings while he was being himself. The only problem I have with it is the man himself, Taylor is definitely famous enough and gets enough attention to not get so much of the interviews in the documentary. However, this gives the documentary an edge. He talks about the songs, his time in the group, and he does get around a lot in the interviews, and they show him and that band at shows in front of millions of people. What I like about the film is that there are plenty of interviews in the film that are not what I expected, like talking to the rest of the band. I think it's quite accurate how the band ended up, although it does contradict the film at some points and is kind of weird that it ends up with them being so good that they can't live in the studio, but at the same time they talk about how bad they felt about making this and how many other mistakes they made during their time. As you can see from the film it's not the life of Taylor and he's not the guy in the band. He does talk about how much he had to work with and is about to hang up his guitar. So what did I like about the film? Well it had a few major flaws, but the film is such an interesting documentary. I liked how it only gives interviews about what the man was doing, he doesn't say much of what he was thinking about the band, just his thoughts. It gave me a lot of information. Overall I thought the film was really interesting, and I think it's great that it's not what you would expect it to be.

This is what happens when you make a documentary about a pivotal artist. It is brilliant and poetic and it is touching. There is a lot of new information that you would never have thought of. For instance, this film shows how the National Police set up teams of people all over the world to go after people like Andy Warhol. They are all undercover, pretending to be people like Warhol, but they are actually posing as a fellow outsider. So the officers tell him that they are there for a couple of weeks and they want him to come back for a couple of weeks. They promise him the freedom of his son, and they say that the reason they are doing this is that the police need him to investigate the drug operation that he has come to understand the drug laws are making possible. He does the investigation, and he does everything he can to fight the laws, not only against the drug industry, but against the police themselves. He uses the example of one of his targets, David Bowie. Bowie had one of the greatest albums ever made, but he spent most of his time by himself. When his son started getting him involved with drugs, Bowie refused. He was embarrassed by his son's drug problems and he knew it would have nothing to do with him. He would have changed his son if he knew what would happen to him. In the end, this documentary shows how it is not only the problems of the individual, but of society as a whole. It also shows how the police departments are the ones that get more and more aggressive with the drug problem. All the police departments are getting the tools of repression that they need, and they are getting more and more ready to use it. They are changing the mentality of the general population, even more than what the laws themselves are trying to do. This documentary is an excellent documentary for the ages. You should go to a theater or a video store and get it. This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

As a veteran activist in the arts, you can never go wrong with a documentary about American rap music, as it was first about American folk music. In this new documentary, spoken word artist Harry Belafonte, who had, of course, not made it big when he came into the movie industry, now tells his story about growing up in a predominantly black community in Brooklyn, New York, and how he wound up at the recording studio on Sunset Boulevard. The DVD includes interviews with some of the musicians involved in the making of the film. The documentary may be difficult to follow, but, it is well worth watching. Belafonte, who was a longtime star in the movie industry, had become disillusioned with how mainstream films were being made with black actors and didn't see any real promise in Hollywood. He returned to his roots in New York and worked with a series of artists of color, starting with John Coltrane and jazz trumpeter Herbie Hancock. But, one of those artists was the late Puff Daddy. The film was a big hit in its time, but Belafonte himself had a great personal life, and he found that music from people of color had not really progressed as a medium, that the people who had given their lives to jazz were mostly now gone. He began to regard jazz as a subculture, and a lot of it was simply offensive, with racial slurs. He was also struggling with depression and alcoholism. When he first got to the studio in Harlem, he was as badly overqualified for the job as anyone else, so he was fired. This led to the end of his long career. For example, he wasn't able to get people of color who were familiar with jazz to do the record for him, so he and others had to substitute popular stars like Warren G and Mike Meyers. He lived in that same Brooklyn neighborhood with his friends, an area that he thought was full of decadence, poverty and drug dealing. The film is obviously a very personal documentary, but it's also a lot of information on a lot of people who weren't well known at the time.

I don't have any idea what I expected going into this film. I think I was expecting a documentary like "The Run Down of Broadway." However, this film is much more than that. It is an examination of Whitney Houston, who was born in Houston, Texas, but grew up in Texas. At age 7, she and her mom moved to Houston and then later Austin. As she grew up, her life took a turn for the worst. She was dropped by her mother and turned into a child-whore. She was not able to retain much of her education, and was considered the first class. Soon she was locked in a rehab facility, where she was forced to do mindless labor for anyone who could pay her. And of course, she got pregnant and became a prostitute. The documentary also examines the music industry in the late 60's and early 70's. Even though there are not many interviews, it is quite clear that Whitney Houston was able to sell out all of her concerns to the world and sell out the music. She didn't need the money to live the music, and just wanted to play the music. So, her music career is cut short. But it is not all bad news for her. After her time in the rehab facility, she returned to live the music again. Her return to the music was so strong that she was able to make a comeback with the SGT. When her solo album was released, it had huge success. Even though she is considered one of the greatest pop singers of all time, the documentary makes it clear that there is a level of manipulation and confidence to the people that she worked with, especially when she was working with her manager, Erykah Badu, who is a woman that had sex with Houston in her home. It is a brilliant piece of work. The documentary is well done. It tells a story of a woman who was the victim of a lot of manipulation and a lot of lies, but also told a story that she was a victim of some of the greatest musicians of all time. When she did return to the music, it was a very strong return. There is a lot of emotion in this film. Many of the interviews are very moving. One of the things that they do with her is where you can see how much of a pain and a lot of issues were involved in her life. But when we get to the actual story of her, you can tell that she really made a lot of progress and improved a lot over the time she was in rehab. It is hard to watch. One of the things that is really amazing about this film is that they do not really show all of her problems. But there are things that the director does show, especially when they do show the abuse. Even when they do show the abuse, it is very much hidden and hidden behind the veil of drugs, alcohol, and depression. However, when we get to the story of Whitney's death, we get a lot more information and more insight into her. It is almost as if it was meant to be, that she went into a hospital that she believed she would be a success and was forced to a hospital that she thought she would be in to face the accusations against her, which she knew would happen. The people that do the filming do a good job at it. The interviews are very well done. But the directing is the main part that really makes the film. Michael Douglas and Jamie Foxx did a great job. They are not afraid to show the pain and suffering of a

Let me begin with the most important thing that anyone should know about Whitney Houston's music: it's a fucking roller-coaster ride. But it's not just any roller-coaster: it's a roller-coaster that never stops, never slows down, and never stops climbing into its majestic climax. She is the life of her generation. She is the leading edge of the new musical tradition, and she embodies a generation. She is legendary. And when I saw her in a music video with Madonna, it still hit me hard. This is the kind of movie I wanted to see when I was younger: a celebration of someone like Whitney Houston. A girl whose music can make anyone dance to the beat of her song. And it was great. I always had a crush on Whitney Houston. I think she is the greatest female singer of all time, period. And I'm not just talking about those past 3 albums. I'm talking about the moments in her career, and how she changed the world and helped usher in a new musical era. It's also amazing to see how people went on to do amazing things. It's about the people who knew Whitney Houston. I'm a big fan of R&B music. I was always fascinated by the songs she sang in "Boom Boom Pow." And I'm also a huge fan of Justin Bieber. So the movie really got me when I realized that Justin Bieber was in the movie. I could never imagine Justin Bieber in a music video with a girl like Whitney Houston. So I started to worry. I went to see the movie and it was completely different from what I was expecting. And it was amazing. It's a very slow movie, with almost no music in it, but I loved it. I'm not going to say what it is. It's really up to you to decide whether or not you want to see this movie. It's really a great movie, and a very appropriate choice to see with the rest of the holiday season on its way. I can't wait for Whitney Houston to come back and join the festivities. Bravo, Whitney.

I was reluctant to see this documentary until I was not sure it would be an interesting documentary. I thought it was going to be an entertaining documentary about the birth of hip hop. I was shocked by how non-linear this documentary was. You could hardly tell who was saying what and even when they were saying it, you could tell it wasn't real. One part of the documentary showed a recording of two characters in an interview saying they were both 11 years old, and it still seemed so real. It really did put me in the mindset of a kid who actually heard these rap lyrics as a kid. It really did make me feel like I was there. Although, I must admit that this is a very harsh portrayal of hip hop. I can say that this is the most negative view of rap that I have ever seen. I have listened to many rap albums and definitely not even close to the level of the songs in this documentary. I think this documentary really gets to the heart of hip hop, and in my opinion, the success and downfall of a genre. It shows how hard it was to achieve success and how much it takes to win. I can honestly say that I do not know if there is another hip hop documentary that covers this type of topic. This is the most interesting and the most refreshing documentary that I have seen about hip hop. It shows that the most important thing in a hip hop career is your passion and your drive to make music. You can't just stand there and wait for something to happen. It takes a lot of dedication and a lot of hard work to create a masterpiece. I truly recommend that everyone see this documentary. There is nothing boring or easy about it. I can honestly say that it is a documentary that you would want to see at least once in your life.

I'd heard a lot of buzz about this documentary since it premiered, and it was a perfect fit for me. Much of what I heard in the theater was that it was about a woman who was so much more than a jilted lover. The performer is Audrey Hepburn's assistant to the "Hitchcock" productions, the film tells us. But her story is about a man who was so much more than that. This movie doesn't come down in a whole lot of details as to Hepburn's personal life, but we are left with a sense that he was very deeply in love with her and he didn't deserve what happened to him. We never get to know exactly why Audrey was so sexually and romantically jealous of Hugh. We just see her jealousy for him, and it's very painful. This was something Hepburn refused to allow anyone, even his wife, to ever know about, and that is what makes the film such a good listen. The story itself isn't a complicated one, but that's what makes it so tragic. There's a reason Audrey didn't talk about her personal life, it would've just turned off the fans, and it would've also hurt her career. Her career is worth more than a teddy bear. That's why you see Audrey on her "Hitchcock" films, to keep fans from feeling like she let down her fans by not telling their story. Hugh and Audrey are so different, the actor is always great in his role, but Audrey's role is so deeply personal that it takes away from her performance in all but the biggest scenes. This is definitely one of my favorite documentaries and has a great cast, but Hepburn is the star.
