Description Steve McQueen truly is an American Icon. One of America's most endearing and intriguing movie stars, he "is still the King of Cool" according to Esquire Magazine-50 years after the zenith of his career. The strangest thing about him, however, is barely known, despite countless biographies and articles. Steve McQueen was a believer in Jesus Christ. On the surface McQueen had everything he could want-fame, cars, homes, more money than he could spend in a lifetime. An avid fan of the actor (and owner of a replica of McQueen's car in the classic film Bullitt), Pastor Greg Laurie hits the road in his mint Mustang, traveling the country in search of the true, untold story of McQueen's redemption-filled final chapters.

Director John McQueen is a true American icon, who would go on to play the role of Clark Kent in the upcoming sequel to the highly acclaimed "Superman". Along with Johnny Depp and Kate Beckinsale, McQueen created an iconic character that has continued to entertain the masses for decades. "American Icon" is the first feature film from director John McQueen, the man who is considered the single most important voice in the history of film in the world. While he was busy creating characters and plots for the likes of "The Abyss" and "The Matrix", McQueen brought his singular vision to life. This documentary explores McQueen's early beginnings, as a teenager in Germany, when he and his family were forced to leave the country after the Nazis came to power. He went on to become a legendary actor in Hollywood, such as "Casablanca", "Batman", and "Alien", before being fired by studios in order to focus on his art. As McQueen continues to work in Hollywood, he also continues to create his unique signature style, which includes the surrealistic, surrealist elements of "Casablanca", which McQueen actually shot himself. The documentary focuses on the making of "Casablanca" (1941), and it includes the famous use of dream sequences, hallucinatory shots, and the use of actors for the most part. He even speaks about how he has worked with some of the actors he worked with, such as Alec Guinness and Humphrey Bogart, who were also influenced by McQueen's direction. The documentary then shifts to the 1960s, where McQueen began to develop his unique style. He is now a beloved icon, a film legend, and a true American icon, who created the future of film. The documentary ends with the introduction of his personal collection of film, which includes a new work, "L'Etranger", which is based on a true story. McQueen also discusses his recent work, including "The Man With the Iron Heart", which is the first of the story of a painter who lives by the rules of the big cities, only to have his masterpiece stolen by a thug, his rival. The documentary is an excellent documentary, that features some great interviews with McQueen, from the directors of "Casablanca", "The Avengers", "The Avengers 2", "The Avengers 3", and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron", to actor Michael Clarke Duncan, who starred as Jimmy Olsen in "Superman Returns". As a special feature, the documentary also features McQueen's life, including interviews with his sons, and his paintings. "American Icon" is a great documentary about a man who has become the biggest American icon ever. It's an amazing story, and deserves to be a part of our nation's history, and an inspiring film, that deserves to be watched by every person who is looking for an icon.

I am a HUGE fan of Jim McQueen. I am the absolute man that I am not ashamed to say I am, and never have been ashamed of it. My role model to be a true rock star is the man who I am. Jim's energy, charisma, grace, dignity, humor, beauty, and intelligence are undeniable. His story is amazing. I can remember watching every single episode of "Dallas" as a kid, and now as an adult, I can say that it was the most beautifully crafted series I have ever seen. My favorite part of the series is the music. From the beginning, the music was like magic. Jim really had a feel for how to make music. He had all of the correct gear. He just knew how to put the pieces together to create something that was so unique. It was the perfect match. I just love his music. I would also like to point out the amazing credits and the outstanding "Over There" theme song, which is featured in the movie. I just love it. Jim always gave so much to his fans. He didn't want to be known as a rock and roll star, he wanted to be known as a human being. It was so great that he gave it all. And he still does. If you have ever thought about starting up your own business, I can almost guarantee that you will get the exact same boost from Jim McQueen, and that is what a great rock and roll star does. I loved it when I first saw the series. It was the soundtrack of my youth. I watched it so many times I am now addicted to it. I have been listening to it for years. I never listen to music. It is so cool to hear his voice on the radio. I am also so happy to hear his music. Thank you for making a movie about Jim McQueen. It is so much more than just the album. I am so excited that I can now listen to his music again. I am always looking forward to his new music. And so was he. I hope you get the chance to watch "Jim McQueen: American Icon". I can't wait to hear the music. Thank you so much for this awesome movie. It has changed my life. I am so happy I now have the chance to see this movie. Thank you for your time.

For a documentary about the death of a legendary actor, it's kind of odd to hear the filmmaker talk about him as a "realist", a man who lived with his ideals rather than the ideals of others. But McQueen wasn't a realist. He was a man with ideals and ideals of his own. This film is a slice of McQueen's life from his days as a stage actor in a Hollywood play (and he was a great one) to his iconic role in "The Magnificent Seven" to his reclusive death. "American Icon" is a masterful meditation on the end of the career of a man who used the word "hero" as a verb, a man who was an "extremist" in his own right. McQueen was a "realist", but he was not a realist in the literal sense of the word. His character in the film, played by Burt Lancaster, is a "realist". A realist who had dreams and ideals and an awareness of the reality of human life. And that reality was very different from the realities of other people. I felt, for example, that The Magnificent Seven was a study of an artist who at the time of the film's publication had just been fired by the studios for being too fussy and too realistic. I felt that the idea of a strict man with ideals was far from his reality. But, of course, I also felt that the film was very funny and very funny about the "realists". It was interesting to see how even this movie was a study of a man who was a realist and who had values. I also thought that Burt Lancaster did a great job. I was pleasantly surprised. McQueen was a great actor, and he deserves a lot of credit for his last few films. I can't imagine him without this film.

*Spoiler-free* "American Icon" is an amazing documentary that chronicles the life of iconic actor, Martin Scorsese. The film is mainly about how he started, the film he made and the film that still exists today. "American Icon" is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. It is a complete and totally unbiased film. The entire documentary is great, but it is the interviews with Scorsese's co-stars that really make it work. I loved the interview with Christiane Amanpour, a journalist who interviewed Scorsese and his wife in 1990 about their family. It is very well done, you feel you know the couple. You really feel for them. This is because Scorsese is an extraordinary man. "American Icon" is also the film that helps define what it means to be a "actor". I love that he tries to talk to the actors about what it is like to work with a director like Scorsese. "American Icon" is about Scorsese's remarkable work and how he still puts in place the same standards to directors that he once set for himself. It is very inspiring to know how many people around the world respect and admire his work. "American Icon" is a great film and I highly recommend it to anyone. It has everything and I don't know if it would be the same as for example "Hugo", "Titanic", "American Beauty" etc. I do not think that it would be a different movie for me as I would have to mention the director, the films, the actors etc. But all in all, I give it a 10/10. I love this film and will definitely recommend it to people. See it. Enjoy it.

I came to this documentary to find out why everyone at the academy can't get an Oscar nomination. Unfortunately, the film does not reveal the reason for the lack of acceptance, but rather how the academy allowed and encouraged its members to be ditsy and arrogant. The reasons given are bogus, and not worth anything. I think I can say, without spoilers, that a lot of the statements made by McQueen in this movie are false. (If they had been true, they would have caused a lot of controversy.) In addition, the story of "American Beauty" was a fascinating one, and the feeling of isolation was well-realized. The scene where "American Beauty" was being selected for an Academy Award was painful to watch, and I was almost in tears in some parts of the film. When he said, "What was wrong with me that I was just a huge jerk to everybody else?" I found it hard to believe. The things he said about "American Beauty" did not make sense, especially since they were based on facts. For instance, when he said, "The people who liked 'American Beauty' are the same people who liked 'Chicago.'" A major theme of the movie is to show how Oscar winners have not received the recognition they deserve. People like Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, and Gene Hackman were fantastic actors. They gave us some of the greatest movies ever made. There were just some that deserved to be overlooked. I can't find any reason to like their movies. It seems that everyone in the movie agrees that "American Beauty" was a great movie. I can't say the same for "House of Games." This movie was awful, and I thought it was written by a girl. "Rules of Attraction" was good, but not great. It was not memorable, and I did not find any character to like. I think it would have been better to watch "Glitter." Not because it was a good movie, but because it was not a "glitter" movie. The documentary is made interesting by telling the story of how things got started and how it got to the point where these people didn't know what they wanted. I thought this was a good documentary, but I can't recommend it to anyone. If you are a fan of "American Beauty," you may like it. Otherwise, don't bother. 9/10
