Like many other reviewers, I'm always skeptical of the validity of life documentaries. The problem is that many of them are really good, and they just don't work for me. Some are totally fascinating, like The Library or Tipping the Velvet, others are just mundane, like the inevitable documentary on the Nirvana tragedy. But this is a truly great film, which goes to show that a good documentary can be made without the usual Hollywood hype and studio backing. Even if it's only making one, it's still great, and we need more of them like this. The film is a remarkable job of working on a topic that people generally don't want to hear about, and the result is an extremely interesting film. Unlike the usual "opinionated" documentaries that try to push a political agenda (with the usual Hollywoodized overtones), this one does not have a message, but instead comes to the viewer with the objective of showing us a story of a musician, his life, his death, and his legacy. The opening sequence is something you don't see often in documentaries, and it's something that I've never seen before. It's a real wonder to see. The following minutes are as captivating as any of the best documentaries. The music is beautiful and powerful, the images amazing, and the overall story is compelling. I would recommend this movie to everyone, but if you're expecting a documentary, I would recommend not to see it. It's far more interesting for someone who knows the story and wants to know how it started, and you don't have to have seen The Last Broadcast. The film is a success.

First I will start off by saying I think that the documentary does a good job of portraying some of the real dark sides of what happened in the 60s. But the story itself is very interesting, if not a bit predictable. I do not think the documentary did a good job of explaining what the main reason was behind the war, but maybe they should have done that, as it was a true story. And I do not think that it did justice to the victims of the war, or even to the survivors, who lived their lives without having to face the consequences of what they did. But it was also a human story about what happens when you hate someone. The thing is that if you hate someone, and you hate them, why do you care about the consequences? It is not like you are so afraid that you will be put in jail or executed or something like that. But there were many who fought for the sake of freedom, who were being killed and tortured and raped by the regime, and the point was made in the documentary that they were not the only ones who had to suffer. And why should they? We can't help but hate people who hate us. The only way that I could see for this film to be successful is to bring out some of the individuals who survived that ordeal, and show their personal stories. I was disappointed that they did not have any interviews with the people who were actually affected by the war. It would have been interesting to know what the families had to endure, and what they were able to do to make their lives better. I don't know the exact details of what happened in Vietnam, but I am sure that a lot of the people who were there died. I know that the film is based on a book, and I believe that the book is a good one. I think that some of the people who have participated in the war would have liked to see their stories told. But the film did not do that, as it had no interview with the people who were actually living with their memories and their anger. The film did have some interesting scenes, but overall it was a great documentary. And I am glad that it was made.
