The documentary "Going Clear: Scientology & The Prison Of Belief" is a very entertaining and educational documentary. The film was very well made. The film covers many different aspects of the documentary. These include the rise of Scientology, its critics, the organization's policy of "disconnection" from the rest of the world, its beliefs, and its treatment of its followers. The documentary also addresses the "disconnection" process, and the fact that the Church of Scientology is actually being sued by the Church of Scientology members, in the United States, for a class action lawsuit. One of the most interesting parts of the documentary is its look at Scientology's practice of "auditing." In an interview with the producer, Scientology's founder L. Ron Hubbard said that, in his view, auditing is a form of "rehabilitation," and a means to "cleanse" the mind of negative emotions. It is said that during an "auditing session," the subject is told to write down everything that is going through their minds, and to use it as a "control" to put things in order. These ideas are shown in the film as part of the process of "cleansing" the mind of negative emotions. These ideas are very reminiscent of the mind control theories that were promoted in the past by the CIA and by Hollywood. Another topic addressed in the film is the "tech" of Scientology. Many of the scientists involved in Scientology say that they have never been able to see the tech on film, so they can only tell us what they've seen in person. They also say that they believe that they have never seen a Tech that isn't a part of Scientology. In a later interview with the producer, a Scientology expert says that they have a saying for "tech," "They can't control me." That line also comes up in the film. In one of the interviews with L. Ron Hubbard, a former Scientologist, he explains that "tech" is the company's name for the technology that goes into making a Scientologist a "practical Scientologist." Many of the scientists involved in Scientology believe that they have never seen a Tech that isn't a part of Scientology. One of the most interesting interviews in the film is with L. Ron Hubbard, who discusses Scientology with his grandson, Brad Johnson. The documentary also covers his friendship with Joe Zawistowski, one of the most well known Scientologists in the United States. It also includes interviews with other former Scientologists, former members of the Church of Scientology, and an ex-Scientologist who has now left Scientology. In many cases, the interviews are very personal and very revealing. The final part of the film is a discussion of Scientology's policy of "disconnection." This policy is almost like a pledge of secrecy, because the Church of Scientology keeps all information about its practices from the rest of the world. The most controversial part of this policy is the fact that the Church of Scientology has been able to keep its members from getting any sort of legal protection, as long as they agree to stop criticizing Scientology. This policy was stated by Hubbard in a very disturbing way, and it is very unsettling to hear it from the mouth of a man who himself went through Scientology himself. Another very interesting part of the film is its examination of the Church of Scientology's policy on "disconnection." The director interviews L. Ron Hubbard

I grew up in San Francisco. I remember eating oysters and salmon with my dad in the lunchroom. He was always on about the "second best sandwich on earth" - Oysters and a salmon and no onions. The Oyster shop and the sandwich shop were the only two places that had fresh oysters. All the other places only served fried oysters. But I think that was the first real hook for the documentary. I was a teenager when the war in Vietnam started. I was an animal lover. I liked the film. The food scene was great. I remember eating on weekends with my dad. We didn't have a lot of money, but I always had a beer and a plate of salmon or oysters, usually with the big dog of choice - wild Alaskan salmon. I didn't know it then, but for the next few years, I saw a steady increase in the number of young people leaving the San Francisco area, including myself. There are a lot of good documentaries that came out in the last few years about the war in Vietnam. The most recent was "Hap and Leonard" - which I liked very much. If you haven't seen it, watch it. It's about a doctor who went to Vietnam to help medics and find treatment for their wounds. It's very raw, very real. The way the film was made is very powerful. I always love to hear the voices of people who served in the military. It really brings you back to where you were. I remember a fellow who went to basic training at age 17 and served only a few weeks. He had been on a mission to Saigon for a few months and felt that he was getting close to where he wanted to be. He got a good kick out of seeing the Vietnamese people and the way they spoke. He felt that he was getting close to being a hero. He told me that he felt that the Vietnamese people had given him back a sense of purpose, and that it would be a long time before he could go back home. He wanted to go to college but didn't want to get married. He also wanted to do a Ph.D. in pharmacy - I didn't know what that was about. So the whole movie was very real. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in the war in Vietnam. It's very compelling, and the acting is wonderful.

I have no doubt that the founders of this excellent documentary would be proud of this piece. It is remarkable how self-serving the so-called "thinkers" are. But the story is not over yet. It needs more funding to actually make this story of the myth of a good man, the man who led the free world into the internet, into the information age, into the lives of the people he took from the jaws of hell. The story is all about a man whose life was utterly shaped by the internet. It is also about the power of information. His life and his company will be read by hundreds of thousands of people, but that only tells us about the information in the minds of the people that have not seen this story. There are too many stories of people like him, all speaking in their own languages and telling stories of people with whom they have had close relationships. This documentary also tells us about a part of our history that should be told and learned, but has been ignored. The importance of the internet and the web, a part of human history, a part that many people take for granted. All that the internet has done for humanity, all that it has brought about, is to make the world a more interconnected place. It is all that has kept the human race human, a part of the modern world that deserves to be told. And that's why I'm not going to lie, I loved it. It's not just good. It's not just good, but it's one of the most important documentaries ever made. If you don't like documentaries about the internet, you shouldn't watch this one. If you like documentaries about the internet, you should never watch this one.

While the subject matter of this documentary is something you shouldn't really think about, it is hard to avoid feeling that it's just plain, plain depressing and that it would've been more effective to have a happy ending. I've been studying Zen for over two decades, and while this movie is definitely not the pinnacle of Zen cinema, it is definitely worth a watch if you are curious about the topic. The documentary follows three different people (representing various levels of insight) through their insights on the nature of mind and experience. One of the main characters, a Zen master (played by Renee Zellweger) is initially hesitant to talk about the meditation practice and the benefits it can have on the mind. She is visited by a young Zen monk (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) and told that she needs to be open to letting go and find the practice. This causes her to experience a huge shift in her perspective and she then decides that she is "open to the practice". After this point the movie gradually takes a less depressing tone, with each person beginning to discuss what their experience was like while meditating. It is interesting to see a Zen master put so much thought into meditation practice and then to witness this incredible transformation. The movie also highlights the intense feeling of calmness and detachment that one might feel during meditation and how the loss of this calmness can have an effect on the mind. It is very interesting to see how people can experience this great difference between the calm and calmness of meditation and the sudden, violent feelings one experiences during it. I must admit that while watching the documentary I felt that I was watching a documentary about Zen. But if you are interested in meditation then the documentary is definitely a good one to watch.

The story is about a group of people who went to the South Pole to make a record and wound up at the North Pole. They ended up getting stranded there and after a while they realized that they are not where they thought they were. So now what they are is separated from the other humans. And after that they had to be re-united with their family and everyone wanted them to survive. The movie begins with a very intense action sequence. The only problem is that it's all over the place. It's not like you're in a movie that has to be in one place all the time. But then they decided to do a very cold action sequence and it was all over the place. It was a very confusing film. The second one was very good. This one was not. But that was not the case for the third one. I'm not a big fan of action scenes that are too long and full of things that are not that important to the plot. But in this movie they did an excellent job at that. There were more than one action scene that was long and had nothing to do with the plot. It was just too much. But the good thing is that there were more than one scene in this movie that was a little bit confusing. And there were a few more scenes that were just good. Some of them were really good. And some of them were really bad. But all in all it was a good movie. So if you are into the film that is more about the science and the documentary science. You'll like this movie. And if you're into the film that has action and special effects then you'll like this movie. And if you're just into the movie that is just about the science and the science-fiction films then you might like this movie. 8/10.

Although his intent is to keep the film simple, the director emphasizes how his ancestors had a strong, if not exclusive, influence on the way he perceives the world and the way he wants to live. It's a beautiful documentary and worth watching. The family patriarch explains that he felt the need to own the land and the car because he wanted to have a stable existence and did not want to move around too much. When he died, the children inherited a piece of land which had been the inheritance of his father. His daughter knew it was theirs, but did not know the significance until she went on a road trip with her boyfriend and she saw the house that the patriarch had built on the riverbank. Her boyfriend tells her that it was his father's place. She realizes how valuable that piece of land is and she brings it back to the family. In a scene where her boyfriend tells her about the history of the land, she tells him that he was just a young man who grew up on the farm and bought the piece of land. "That is how I feel." I also liked the way the patriarch was depicted. He is a very nice and humble man. He is not as hard and demanding as the patriarch, but he is not a happy man either. The patriarch always wants to keep up the family name. He will not say to the other patriarch that he is his nephew. He always asks the patriarch for a piece of land and then sells it to him. He never wants to leave the family, and he thinks that the only way he can get the land back is to do it in his own way. It's not that the patriarch is an evil person, but he does not want to be left alone. I really liked how he reflected how he feels in his family and how he sees his relationship with his son and daughter. His attitude is like a "don't look at me" and "let me do what I want" and "I want to be a good father and not a bad one." I think this is a powerful family documentary.

George W. Bush is the Man. With "George W." being a descriptor for almost every one of his public appearances, it should come as no surprise that a documentary on his life would be coming out soon. I can't imagine why they wouldn't just call it "George W." since it will be easy enough for the public to remember his name, but then why not simply call it "Bush" or something equally "important"? I find it odd that the director/writer/star of this movie is none other than George W. Bush. I would like to say that this is not the first time that the name George W. Bush has been attached to something that doesn't even remotely involve the man himself. Back in 1994, "Bush" was a film that was released under the title "Risky Business" by the title of "The Gulf War." Also, there was a film titled "Bush 43" which was a film that was released in 1996, but was more of a TV pilot titled "The Bush Bunch." The director of both of these films was Jack Anderson. You can even find a documentary about the projects of Anderson, titled "Bush 43," which was an hour and a half documentary that was narrated by the actor Donald Sutherland. That said, this film was actually much better than most documentaries that have come out of Hollywood. I'll give the film credit for actually getting the man himself, George W. Bush, to speak, and that was something that was certainly needed. But the whole documentary was really fun to watch, because it was real and not like the movie "Risky Business." I really liked the way the movie was filmed. I thought the camera angles were great. The documentary starts off with George W. Bush talking to the camera about the George W. Bush presidency, and then it ends with his son Jeb Bush talking about his father's presidency. In order to properly describe the film, I should point out that it is actually kind of informative and actually tells a lot about how George W. Bush lived his life and the things that he worked on. But it's also a lot of fun to watch. For the most part, it's just a fascinating look into the life of George W. Bush. What's interesting about the film is that it is actually kind of funny. Most of it is actually very serious. It's very humorous. When George W. Bush talked about his work with the CIA in the mid-90s, it was actually very funny. It was like they were mocking the guy and it was actually very funny. He had the CIA saying to him, "You should stay in the White House, the CIA is going to kill you." And then the joke was that he was going to be the President and he was saying to the CIA, "No, I'm going to go back to the White House and be President." Then he went to work for the CIA and they were saying, "You should stay in the White House, the CIA is going to kill you." And then he said to the CIA, "No, I'm going to go back to the White House and be President." It's a very funny documentary. I don't think the title of the film itself should come from the fact that it's about George W. Bush, but the title could have been the name of the film itself
