This film is interesting to me for many reasons. For one thing, I am not a great fan of the term 'democracy'. It is a term used to refer to a system in which a majority vote for a government to govern. When I see the term in reference to a documentary about some western democracy, I tend to think of this movie's title. The documentary is called 'Democracy: 100 Years of Change' and the title was chosen for a reason. As I mentioned earlier, I am not a great fan of democracy. I am more concerned with the issue of how much of our freedoms are subject to the control of a few and how much is left to us. In other words, I am not very interested in the idea of democracy because I am not too keen on the idea. I am very interested in what a democracy is supposed to do and how it has evolved in the past and how it has evolved in the future. If a democracy does not work, the idea of it is not very good. For that reason, this film is very interesting to me because it gives a very clear view of the history of democracy, which has been the foundation of many other forms of government. The documentary is edited very well. The images are well-filmed and there is an overall feeling that the viewers are in control of the events. The movie is also very well-edited and the material is well-presented. I do not think that it is necessary to watch this movie in a classroom. It is a good idea to watch it in a large auditorium and have a discussion afterwards. I will watch this movie again.
