I love documentaries about real life but some of these docu-dramas are really contrived or look like a prequel to a movie. I thought this was very well done. The audience always had this admiration of Chris Messina, and even though the whole idea is that he is almost obsessive about this girl Christine, he tries to make it as neutral as possible. He was obviously so focused on his case that he didn't want to appear too attached to it or to have Christine's attitude changed. It was very flattering to see the process in which the documentary was being done. The idea that Chris Messina lived almost the whole of his adult life, trying to save Christine, living in the house they lived in and not paying any attention to their daughter was very interesting. They were very open about the relationship with Christine and all the treatments. The idea of this documentary is to give the audience some idea of the process of what it would be like for a scientist to be involved with a child. There were so many questions about the subject that I had to check them out on the Internet to see what was on the Internet. There were also several moments where I felt that the movie was a little bit too documentary. I am sure that Chris Messina was a very nice and open person, but I thought that the audience should be made aware of the sense of responsibility and, for example, how difficult it would be to give up everything and then going through this. It was a little too naive in my opinion. In any case, the movie is very well done and was very important to me. I thought that Chris Messina would have been a great person to do this documentary.

I recently watched the film in Boulder, CO, where I live. I was a bit disappointed that it was billed as a docudrama. It was not a documentary. It was more like an interview with two people on the panel that watched the film. It was a compilation of events that had followed the tragic death of Christine, the director's niece. She was buried as a human on November 13, 2007. In the video she is shown as she is walking, smiling, asking questions. These were the last people that Christine would have seen and met. Christine's mom and her sister were interviewed. There was a clip of Christine walking with her mom as she was saying goodbye. She was done talking and was looking at the sky, the casket of her niece. Her mom was talking to a other person as she is driving away. As they drove away, Christine's mom can be seen on the left side of the road. This was not the mom that we are all familiar with in the U.S. "She is the personification of the miracle of life, the virgin birth, the life of Christ, the final result of his death, and the one who lives to see the resurrection of the human race," says Linda Bethe. The information about the events that followed the death of Christine was not exactly how she would have viewed it. She died an age she never wanted to live. That being said, her death had not been kind to her, and a bit too late. But what makes this documentary more than a film about a tragic event is the people interviewed. Each person felt like a real person, not like a person they knew in the media. For that reason alone, I would give this documentary 9 stars. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know what was in the mind of Christine, her personal tragedy, and what went on at the time of her death. For the first time ever, her entire family and friends gathered in the same place in the U.S. for one of her last days. It is a bit like they are talking to someone you know.

Director and writer Paul Neurath (The People vs. Larry Flynt) brings together one of the most fascinating women in modern history, Elizabeth Short, to tell the story of how a lone, self-made woman from a strict, Biblical family was able to break free from the rigid social norms and ideals of her time and shape her own path. This short documentary is a great movie for anyone who's ever had the privilege of growing up in a strict, religious household, or someone who's ever wondered what it would be like to grow up in a religious environment, or someone who's ever wondered how to change their religious upbringing. Director Neurath clearly shares his faith as well as his love of the past, both of which he uses to draw his characters and the audience in. Elizabeth Short was a pioneer, a determined woman who took on religious dogma and society, and in doing so, changed the way people viewed and treated women. And she didn't have to wait for a man to turn her into a saint. You can't buy it. Although she went the distance, and broke the social barriers for women, one of the biggest lessons she gave to people was that a woman must stay true to herself no matter what, and regardless of what society would do to her or any other woman in that time. Of course, a lot of women still had to "be their own woman" and carry a man's burden. She was the first woman in a century or so who was allowed to break the "taboos" around women's roles in society, and for that she's truly a pioneer. Elizabeth Short was a pioneer, and no man has ever been able to get close to her like this documentary does. Although she had a very strict and religious upbringing, the movie is incredibly well done, well-written, and well-directed. Paul Neurath does a phenomenal job of capturing the attention of the audience, and keeping them interested throughout the film. Elizabeth Short was not the first woman to break social barriers, but she paved the way. She established the "taboos" around women, and allowed women to make their own choices, and as a result, the "taboos" never fully disappeared. And in this case, they got stuck in some weird, outdated mindset. This is a great movie about one of the most fascinating people in modern history. Although her story is also an interesting one, it's the real thing. It's not some totally unrelated documentary about her life, but rather the story of one woman who decided to break the taboos and take on a world of her own. And despite her "mistake" of a husband, the fact remains that she did it by following God, and obeying the command to be a woman. "Why do I have to do that?"

I have to say that I felt left out after seeing this documentary. This isn't a documentary, it is a character study. We watch as Christine, who we follow throughout this film, discovers her sexuality and finds her sexuality through her work. The only times where we don't see Christine is when she is with others, in front of the camera, and in the dark. What this film does is show us that no matter who you are, no matter how you are, you can change your sexual identity and your sexual expression. This film is about a transgender woman who finds her sexual identity and expression through her work. However, I was hoping that this would be the "mark of her career". Unfortunately, it wasn't. What I expected was that she would start using a certain type of cosmetics and begin wearing a certain type of dress. However, it was not. We are not given the opportunity to see Christine in the company of another transgender woman. We are not given the opportunity to see Christine on a date. The only time we see Christine, she is in front of the camera. In an interview, Christine said that her career is a "vibe" rather than a career. Her career was a 'vibe'. This is what makes her character so interesting, the fact that she finds her sexuality through her work. We do not get to see Christine in the company of others, even the "employee" Christine. When you watch the interview with Christine, you will find yourself in a state of shock. Her perspective is very different from that of other interviewees, we see her saying "yeah, I'm a transsexual". I really cannot stress enough that this is not a documentary, it is a character study. It gives you a character study of the transgender person. But, it doesn't explain her background, her culture, her family. You just have to go watch the documentary and see for yourself. I would recommend this to anyone, especially to people who have not seen a documentary before. It is an interesting look into a transgender person's life and it is well worth watching. The question that I ask myself is how can this person be a person, but not be a woman?

There are no images or words that convey much depth or emotion, but this film does. We watch it through the eyes of the cameraman, a professional so-called "journalist" and director, for whom Christine is a raw documentary and kind of a "true" personal portrait. If you can't tell where the film is going, you can hardly discern what the cameraman's role is, why he does what he does, what he will do if it is his last job, or why his family and their difficulties matter. The filmmakers never tell us. It is difficult to relate to Christine as a real person. The documentary is a visual construction. It is a character study of a young woman who, despite having a promising future, found herself at the wrong place at the wrong time. But what matters most is what her performance shows us about her and what is most remarkable about her story. Without a doubt, her performance is remarkable, although the camera-work and her speech are remarkable too. She is not speaking as the "face" of the project, but as a human being, a human being who is continually making decisions that may have real or tragic consequences. Her performance is inspirational and does not show us anything as to what she thought and felt. What is incredible is that all of us can look to her for advice and inspiration when we are in trouble and, if we are, it is always the wrong advice and the wrong advice is always the wrong thing to do. That is what happens to most people at the wrong place at the wrong time. The camera-work, and the filming of the events in question, was great, but what really turned my head was how brilliant and memorable Christine's voice was in these interviews. I think that the ending was excellent too, but it was a bit abrupt and needed to be more emotionally powerful. I loved the parts where the director introduced the people involved in Christine's story, how they all struggled to make a life for themselves in a time of terror, how they told the stories of those who were there and how the world had never heard of these people. The director's script did not tell us much about the cause of the events, what happened to the people involved, and how they all came to be there at the wrong time. Christine was a real life story, and her story mattered a lot to me. It made me think, and even make me think a little. And all of it could have been real. Instead, the directors were satisfied to let us imagine the story and see what happened. That's great filmmaking. It's not like other documentaries where the director just wants to let us see the things and how they happened. When you make a film about real life stories, you have to take the audience for granted and show the same story

I'm not gonna lie, I knew nothing about this movie, not even how to pronounce it, and I didn't even know how to pronounce it either. I went in expecting to see a bunch of boring and somewhat pointless documentaries about the rise and fall of Christine; but no, instead I got to see Christine Elizabeth Brumfitt who got stabbed to death in her bath tub. The documentary is extremely disturbing, but it's worth watching just to get the real story of a tragic life. So it was somewhat understandable that the documentary didn't go into the details of how the case was solved or how the verdict was eventually handed down. All I know is that in the movie, we get to see how Brumfitt, as the defendant, claims that Christine was in her head (although she says "not in her body") when she killed her. She also claims that Christine was in a vegetative state when she killed her, and that Christine was only in her head when she stabbed her, but there are a lot of witnesses who claim that she was not in her head when she killed her. The film, at the end, basically explains what really happened, and you'll get to hear her story again at the end of the documentary to really understand the whole situation. This documentary was very informative and very interesting, but it was definitely not for the casual viewer. The real story of Brumfitt, however, is something that I really can't get out of my head, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes documentaries, because it's a story that I cannot forget. However, I do suggest that you go in expecting that it'll be boring and you might find that you don't enjoy it, so you don't want to waste your time. If you go in, you'll understand why, but I don't recommend it if you don't want to understand it. Rating: *1/2 out of *
