I just watched this film on DVD and I absolutely loved it. It was a good movie but I think it needed a little more focus on the person who made the film and what they were trying to accomplish. I think that if they took the time to really understand what the director and director of photography were trying to do with this film, the movie would have been a little more powerful and effective. What I mean is that they probably could have been a little more detailed in the explanations they gave us about what this film was trying to achieve. There were a few reasons I liked this film. The main reason was because I felt that the movie was actually moving me. I know a lot of people don't like documentaries and I can definitely understand why they might feel that way but I thought the story was moving me and it was really great to watch. Another reason I liked the film is because I felt like it was a good representation of how people really felt about the Vietnam War and the people who were in it. It was very good to see how they felt about the war and the people who were in it and how they really tried to accomplish what they were doing. Overall I really liked this movie because it gave me an idea of what it was like to be there and it was really good to see what the people were trying to accomplish. I really do recommend this film and I hope that you guys will get a chance to see it. I would definitely recommend this film to people who don't know what they are missing and who are looking for a good documentary to watch.

I was intrigued by the title of this documentary as I am a lover of the social activist movement and thus was excited to watch it. However, it was far from a "review" of the movement and instead filled in a lot of blanks regarding what happened after the Venceremos and whether or not it affected the general population. While I was somewhat relieved to find out that not all of the people I mentioned as the "missing" were "missing" due to the tragedy, it was also difficult to understand why so many people were so consumed by the topic and how it affected them. I also didn't understand how so many people had so much passion for the movement that they couldn't sit back and see what was happening. It also seemed that many people weren't "missing" but had somehow convinced themselves that they were. While the documentary was well-made and informative, it lacked much. There was much talking about the movement, but very little actually happening. There was even less talk about the movements being focused on. There was no discussion of how the movement had affected other communities and how people were reacting to it. There was a lack of discussion about the causes of the social movements and how they affected people. There was also no discussion of the internal conflict that many activists had to deal with. Instead, there was more talk of how to get involved and how to influence people to get involved. This seemed to be a missed opportunity to cover more of the causes and the movement's effects on the communities. I think that the main reason for this failure was the attempt to use these issues to question the ideology of the movement and its impact on the general population. The goal of the film was to ask "what has the movement actually done?" instead of "how has the movement affected the people it was focused on?" I found this attempt to have been too subtle and to me made the film feel very shallow. Instead, the film should have been more about what the movement did and why it was so successful in terms of the general population and not about what it did to the activists. I would definitely recommend watching this documentary and that it is well-made, but that it would have been more powerful if the film had focused on the cause of the movement instead of trying to use the issue of the movement to question it.
