Description Filmed with vérité intimacy for almost a decade, QUEST is the moving portrait of an American family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, parents Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" Rainey raise a family while navigating the poverty and strife that grips their neighborhood. They nurture a community of artists in their basement home music studio, but even this creative sanctuary can't always keep them safe. Epic in scope, QUEST is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, commitment, healing and hope.

It's a shame this film was made, it would have been a great documentary about the history of the post-war period. It is quite true that in some parts of this film the atmosphere is still somewhat post-war, in that the car people are still driving the same cars, but as a whole it is not a post-war film. This is the point of view of a former President of Japan, who left office as the war was winding down. He is interviewed at length, though the film is not really a documentary. His assessment is fairly accurate, though the truth is not that well documented. He is not as independent as he was, for example, a view that he would have felt obliged to carry out such a war, and was even willing to die in the war. He is a good enough interviewee, and is even an interesting presence on screen. His opinion and experience is very valuable, and the film is a good attempt to reconstruct his life, including his years as a politician, his health problems and his attitude towards the war, the criticism of the Japanese invasion of China and his health problems. It is not a masterpiece, but I would recommend it for those who want to know what the Japanese thought about their war, as well as for those who want to see a documentary that tries to understand what might have made Japan act so badly, and what made the Japanese people think the way they did. The way the film tells it, and the history behind it, are two very different things. The lack of detail is deliberate, but the documentary style also gives the film a certain a self-consciousness. A somewhat pretentious and tedious presentation, and it doesn't quite make a good film.

The movie is a great introduction to the growth of roller derby. I was also impressed with the quickness of the movie and with the fact that it was actually quite easy to follow the story of these girls. Although I know that roller derby is not really about girls and that these girls are far from being the greatest skaters in the world, the story is nonetheless quite relatable to anyone who has seen roller derby, whether they are a fan or not. I also was impressed by the fact that the movie was based on real events rather than a Hollywood-style movie that relies heavily on CGI. The movie was so true to life that I didn't think twice about the fact that the girls actually went to school and paid taxes while they were in the league. My biggest disappointment was the fact that there wasn't any reaction from the audience to see what the reaction of the viewers was. If they would have shown the reaction of the audience to the heroes and the reactions of the audience to the villains, it would have been a much better film. Finally, I was surprised that the movie did not focus much on the supposed "Faulty Bridge" incident. I think that this incident is probably the most well-known part of roller derby, but the movie didn't really focus on it enough. The movie's biggest flaw is the fact that it doesn't do a very good job of showing roller derby at the beginning. I think that the movie should have focused on how the girls came to be in the league, how the league came to be and how the league changed over time, as well as the growth of the league as a whole. The movie also should have shown the villains, especially the one that we all know so well: Tony Hawk, in his famous performances and the reaction to them. The movie should have also shown the reactions of the audience to them. In the end, the movie is a good introduction to roller derby and I am looking forward to seeing it again.

The problems of early American history, especially the Jim Crow South, were better explained in the film "Jim Crow: A True Story" (2000), directed by Garry Marshall, and narrated by Spike Lee. Although the premise of the film (about the rise of segregation in the 1950s) is accurate, it is based on a rather unreliable source: a book written by the lawyer and educator (and one-time civil rights activist) Arthur H. Austin, Jr. (1893-1950), entitled "The Jim Crow Story" (1956). In fact, the book was written in 1940, but there is no evidence that Austin was ever an advocate of racial segregation in the 1950s, when the film was made. Nonetheless, "Jim Crow: A True Story" is a good and informative account of the rise of racial segregation in the U.S., from the end of the Civil War through the early 1950s. The film explores the complex question of whether Jim Crow laws were legal or illegal, and explores the reasons for the onset of segregation in the South. Some of the film's strongest moments involve the subtle ways in which the film highlights the effects of Jim Crow laws on everyday life, such as the use of the "white man's burden" to exclude black people from certain facilities (such as in public schools), and the loss of control of the black community by the "white man's burden." The film also depicts the ways in which Jim Crow laws were passed and enforced. For example, in several states, the governor or a law-making officer (typically the governor of a southern state) could invoke the Jim Crow laws and make a determination that a black person would be denied access to a public school because of his race. As one commentator put it, "It wasn't that a black person had to be sent to a school because he was black, but that he would be denied the right to go to a public school." In one notable episode, the Virginia legislature passed an anti-miscegenation law, as well as an anti-miscegenation law for a minority group (the Irish), and passed both laws unanimously in one day, without debate. Many people, including members of the press, speculated that the result would be an Irish minority in Virginia, and in one notable instance, one of the two bills was rejected by the voters, but the other bill was passed anyway. One of the most important elements of the film, however, is that it shows how Jim Crow laws were implemented, particularly in the South. While the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education (1954) that "separate but equal" was a violation of the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, the court went on to say that the equal protection clause was not a requirement of the 14th Amendment. Moreover, the Supreme Court was overruled in the landmark decision of Davis v. Bandemer (1962) which held that a state could not restrict a person's ability to vote on the basis of race. In all, the film is an excellent account of the history of segregation in

Although this was never intended to be a comprehensive documentary of American wrestling, I'd describe it as "sports-documentary." I can understand why some viewers were confused by it, and I can understand why some felt like it was too slow and overly structured. It's an important topic that I thought the filmmakers did a good job of presenting in an accessible way. Although the film is not overly descriptive, it's definitely not boring, either. I have to say that although I've never been a fan of wrestling, I was always interested in how the pro wrestling world operated, so I was definitely intrigued. While the film has a heavy emphasis on the changing of the NCAA for the national champion, it's a great movie to introduce the concept of college sports. The documentary was also pretty informative and filled with information that wasn't often brought up in a documentary. For example, the NCAA doesn't put a point on the game's record. It just gives the score, the average, and some other numbers. In other words, it doesn't tell you how many points you should have scored, but it tells you how many points you scored in the game. Also, it never shows the actual game, but just shows the scores and a couple of pictures. The documentary also didn't mention how many athletes attend college in order to train for their sports. They just say that it's a growing trend, but doesn't say how many athletes are actually trained. Finally, it didn't mention how many people are involved in the pro wrestling industry. One of the best parts of the documentary was seeing the wrestlers themselves, but the documentary also doesn't do anything to really build up their characters, so I didn't have much of a connection to them. However, the film is still worth watching for its great focus on the pro wrestling world. I can see how this film would make someone want to get into wrestling, and I definitely can see why pro wrestling is such a popular sport. The documentary is great, but I think a better film should have been made on the history and the culture of pro wrestling. Overall, it's a great documentary that I would recommend to anyone.

I went to this movie for the same reason I went to the 1980s: because it is the 90s. That's why I think this movie was an excellent choice. I love the 90s music, I like the 70s clothes, and I also love how this movie portrays the 90s. What really hit me when I saw this movie was the cast. The cast is made up of A-listers from the 90s and is good in their roles. Nicole Kidman is a real talent and delivers a performance that is both credible and entertaining. Her performance is similar to her performance in The Hours, where she is not only believable, but it also allows the audience to see her as a human being. Like The Hours, this movie allows the audience to see how easy it was to be swept up in the 90s. We see a time when everything was at its peak and the music was at its best, and so many people were optimistic about the future. This is what makes this movie fun. And this is the problem I have with this movie. I get that it is a fantasy story, but when I watched the movie, I really didn't think about the story in any way. I think a lot of people were expecting to see a real life story of an actress who had a dream and made it real. The movie was supposed to show how hard it was to be a rock star. I don't think that was the case. The problem I had with the movie is that it just didn't make me believe in the story. It just didn't fit the movie. I thought the movie was good, but it just didn't fit the 90s. I think the movie is a good watch, but I think it should have been a little bit longer. This movie was a little bit too short.

It's hard to say whether this documentary "Tell Me Something Good" is more or less inspirational than the actual "Into the Great Wide Open" (1977). The story is about a legend in the American Indian tradition: An American Indian who travels the world to fight for human rights, especially when it comes to the treatment of Native Americans. There are a number of beautiful images in this film, particularly one shot of a young girl sitting on a rock in the rain, holding her head in her hands, and crying into her little hands. She has just been selected by a child of a tribe, her name is Mimi, and she is about to be sacrificed for the tribe's water supply. Mimi is willing to go to almost any length to bring the treatment of Native Americans to the attention of the world. Mimi has a rather unusual way of speaking. She does not speak very much, but rather, only when she is on the phone or in the presence of other people. But the message of the film is that people should listen to the voice of the girl. Many people may disagree, but for me, this film was about giving a voice to a child who is growing up in a world that is not always fair to her. The film goes a little beyond the normal image of the "Grizzly" (a person who spends all day in the woods, and doesn't communicate with humans), but it's still important to show that sometimes the most important thing is not always about ourselves, but the environment. The great thing about this film is that it is not preachy. The focus is not on Mimi, but on the other women and men who are suffering from conditions such as hunger, or who have lost their children to disease, or who have been forced to leave their lands because of resource extraction. The movie is also about the remarkable stories of those who have not seen this film, but who have found their voice through the work of Mimi. There are two children who have lost their father and who are now living on the streets. One of the children, a girl, says that it is her mother who keeps them going, and that "if I do not feed them, they will die". She has not seen her father for a long time, but she feels that she is the only one who can help her mother. The other child, a boy, is learning to read, and is very passionate about being able to speak. In a sense, he is "grieving" for his father who has died, and is now missing. We see a young boy who is lost in the wilderness, and we learn that his mother has gone out to get food. We also learn about the daughter of a tribe who lost her mother and who is now having to cope with the loss of her daughter. And we learn about Mimi herself, a very isolated young woman who is trying to make a living. I found the story very moving. I hope that the film can spread awareness of the plight of the Indian people, but I also hope that the film will be able to educate people

It seems that this year is the year of the documentary, with a lot of brilliant, insightful and, on occasion, just plain funny ones to look out for. This documentary looks at the life and times of the legendary Jeff Buckley, best known for being the voice of Superman. But here, we see what really happened behind the scenes in the late 70s when he was signed to the record company he co-founded, Capitol Records. It turns out that the band was struggling financially and couldn't pay the bills, so Jeff had to borrow money from his manager, to pay for the band's medical bills and other expenses. And he had to put off his band's long awaited album, due to Capitol's insistence that they have no song written for the album. In the process, he suffered a stroke and a heart attack, which ultimately forced him to go on to form the band New Found Glory. But he didn't have enough money to pay off the debts and he died in a car accident, leaving the band to go on to success. It's a simple story of a man who couldn't pay his debts and had to borrow money from his manager, to help him get by. This documentary is very interesting and informative, but it isn't very funny, at least not in the same way that The Rocky Horror Picture Show was. And that's a shame, because I was pretty entertained by this. It's also not as funny as it could have been, because of the way it presents the stories of other people in the band. It's very like a series of interviews, but not really very funny. But that's okay, because it's a very good documentary, and the interviews are very informative. And of course, this is a great addition to any collection of Bruce Springsteen fan's favorite Bruce Springsteen documentaries. If you like this, you might also like, We're Going to Need a New Brain, A Rock and Roll Nightmare and You're Not Alone. A solid 8/10 from me.
