As a little girl growing up in Los Angeles, 11 year old Francesca Nicole gave the world one of the most beautiful documentaries about garbage pail kids. Now, over 30 years later, this documentary has become an integral part of Francesca's and her family's lives. Even her now grown daughter, 6 year old Amber, is very influenced by this documentary. It was amazing to see how these kids lived their lives and to have this documentary was one of the most important events in Francesca's life. As Francesca says "This is a very important documentary to the people who grow up in this sort of environment." She gave us a glimpse into what garbage pail kids live with every day. We were treated to Francesca's mother telling her about the food she was forced to eat and the feelings she felt when she was being picky. That part of the film was really heartbreaking and has stuck with me forever. The first thing we learn about Francesca and her father is how much he loves his daughter and treats her the same. He's not some doormat. He's really kind and he's not stupid enough to eat garbage and try to sell it in school. His dad does not have drugs in his home. Francesca tells us how much of a big influence her dad was. He's not some spoiled brat. He is a caring and nurturing father who has not ever treated his daughter badly. Francesca is shown in the beginning of the film trying to find her way. She is not the first person who comes to her father and ask him about his childhood. The first one is someone who was abandoned at birth and is now living with her sister. Francesca does not judge her because she can relate. She gives a nice answer when she hears his story. He also tells her how she was picked on at school because of her dark skin. He wasn't abusive and she didn't feel bullied. He says to her "I can understand that. Sometimes you think it's bad and you don't want to talk about it but this is what happens to these kids and they can't talk about it." Francesca understands. "This is what happens to these kids and they can't talk about it." In addition to this interview we get a lot of interview footage from Francesca's childhood. The film uses a lot of kids from Francesca's hometown in Southern California. We get to see how the people around them treated the kids and how they raised them. One thing I like about this documentary is that we get to see the city of Los Angeles. It's very refreshing to see what is really like living in Los Angeles. We see so many things that are left out in the other documentary. I would say that this is the most detailed documentary about garbage pail kids we have seen. It gives a glimpse into the life of these kids. We learn so much about the different emotions they experienced growing up and how they became who they are today. It is a beautiful film. It's not only about Francesca and her father, but it is also a special documentary about the environment that these kids grew up in. I highly recommend this documentary.

After 9 years of trash children I find myself not wanting to go there anymore. You can never fully appreciate the impact that these kids had on my life. Each one's story is different but they all share the same unspoken fear. The people that make a child believe in something even if it's a negative thing, it's also responsible for their generation. If they do not leave the world a better place, I am willing to bet a parent won't be around for long. These kids are truly scarred. No, not mentally, but emotionally. The impact is so well known that no one is really sure what to do about it. At some point people take it into their own hands, the result of which was actually shocking. It's no secret that these kids are never going to be normal and they are very well suited for what they do. The result of this type of treatment is no surprise, when it's not very noticeable anymore. But their story is so well known, and there are so many people willing to help them and their families, it is no wonder these kids are never going to be normal again. A lot of the kids have formed close relationships with adults, such as their fathers. In some cases it works very well, in others it does not. Even though there is some reason to believe that there is some connection, it still remains a mystery. As of now, most of the boys have been released from the institutions. Some of them seem to be happy with the world, while others are still waiting for their families to pay attention. This is one of those documentaries that I would watch again and again. I will not give it away, but some of the stories that were told made me rethink things I had been thinking about. For those who may not have had these experiences, I think you would enjoy this film. I would strongly suggest that you see it. It's important for everyone.

I am surprised that this is not rated as highly as it should be. It's been a long time since I have seen this movie. As with most documentaries and even television, it is not easy to watch. However, it's very important to see the documentary and you have to be open minded. The movie does go into detail about the making of the movie and how it took nine years for the movie to make it to theaters. I am not the only one to have problems with this movie. I was very disappointed with the film. There were only three things that I liked about the movie. The people that were interviewed are genuine people who cared about the movie and wanted to do the best they could with what they had. The movie was not a political statement and it was not like this was an anti-war movie. It was about the true story of children being taken away from their parents and sent to a landfill. Although the people in the movie are very naive and are definitely suffering from this because of how people are being taken advantage of and treated in the United States. I have to admit that this movie was very important in my opinion. The movie does an excellent job of showing the true story of the children. The director does an excellent job of not showing the children as people and people who are in pain. They show the children as people who are suffering from a terrible situation that the United States has brought on. It is truly heart-wrenching. I have nothing negative to say about the movie. This is not a propaganda movie. The kids were there for good reasons and they were not there for bad reasons. I feel like this movie does a great job of showing the children and their hardships. I hope people will give this movie a chance and watch it. There is much more to this movie than what the director gives us credit for. A great movie that everyone should see. 8/10

Another beautifully, raw story of the Great American trash bomb. Forget the specious alliterations, or lack thereof, this is a true story, told from a child's point of view. The trash bomb, it turns out, was a great American triumph, in terms of the financial and social benefits of providing free food to poor people. How can you not feel for the kids? The parents, too. I do not know if the child who appeared in the beginning of the film actually killed himself because of the effects of the events depicted in the film, but it is true that these children are clearly at a crossroads in their lives. The adult guidance is obvious from the beginning, but the children also offer some surprising advice and experience. Watching the film makes you want to grab yourself and protect yourself. The young boys, especially, talk about their experiences as if they had been there themselves. And of course, the film is a powerful indictment of how destructive our American economic system is, and the fundamental greed that makes some of us believe that the Great Recession is just around the corner. The story of the great American trash bomb is compelling, and shows how we can change the system without resorting to violence or recriminations. The film doesn't take sides, and it doesn't over-do the self-reflection, but I think that is necessary if you are interested in the subject. If you don't want to go into the subject, that is fine, but the film does a great job of presenting the nuances, and the complexities of the subject. The film is only 83 minutes long, but it really keeps you interested. The sound track is awesome. I would have liked to have seen some work by the anti-war activists, but the film is at least making some effort to show some difference of opinion. This is a great documentary. I give it an A-.

This documentary is a very intriguing look at the evolution of a distinct subculture, which is the Garbage Pail Kids. Garbage Pail Kids, or the Pail Kids for short, were just kids who grew up on the streets of the inner city of Detroit. The Pail Kids became popular with the right crowd, being completely immature and ignorant of society. As such, they are not people with common sense, but rather like zombies who exist on a diet of processed food. However, the people who become the Pail Kids are an exceptional group of people who are driven by love of music and who love the Pail Kids, who have nothing more important to them than music and doing well. The documentary is a fascinating look at the development of the Pail Kids and how they became popular. It is interesting to see how they adapt to the world and what happens when the Pail Kids are famous. The Pail Kids had no money, no cars, no social support, and most of all, no love. Despite the fact that the Pail Kids live in a very bleak world, they manage to keep their level of spirituality up. The Pail Kids seemed to use their music and their music became a part of their lives. Through their music, the Pail Kids learn to live the good life, and the Pail Kids use the music as a platform to show the world that there is another way of being. The Pail Kids are inspired by their music and use it as a means to express their feelings. The Pail Kids believe that every song and song has its meaning. Therefore, they ask the public for help in recreating the lyrics and perform them in front of their fans. The Pail Kids believe that if they can live life to the fullest, they will not only have more energy and hope for their future, but will have more meaning in their lives. This documentary is very interesting because it shows a very dark side of life that we cannot understand from the outside world. The Pail Kids were so young, yet so immature and disorganized, that the world and the world's thought leaders looked at them as completely idiots. This documentary shows the Pail Kids as the victims of their world and is an eye opener into the dark world of the Pail Kids. It is a must-see for everyone who wants to understand how intelligent people can be. The Pail Kids are the last of the kids, and like all the other kids, they can't make it. Despite their problem, they have great hope. When they get older, they will see how their lives have gone and hopefully learn from their mistakes.
