Description In 1973, five men and six women drifted across the Atlantic on a raft as part of a scientific experiment studying the sociology of violence, aggression and sexual attraction in human behavior. Although the project became known in the press as 'The Sex Raft', nobody expected what ultimately took place on that three month journey. Through extraordinary archive material and a reunion of the surviving members of the expedition on a full scale replica of the raft, this film tells the hidden story behind what has been described as 'one of the strangest group experiments of all time.'

I'm not an expert on pirates but I'll try to give some context. First off, I saw this film at the Cannes Film Festival. The film was well received by the audience, but when I watched the film, I thought it was so disappointing. The movie itself was shot on video and the video was labeled as having been shot by Robert Pardo. So I was wondering if the movie was actually filmed by Robert Pardo. It was. I saw the trailer to this film and I thought "they can't film a movie on the road on video." It was actually shot on the road and it looked like a documentary film. Also, some people on the streets were walking around and all they did was talk. It looked like they were not following the point of the film. The only interesting thing was that the "episodes" in this film were shot in Morocco and Italy. Most of the time the desert was around. There were several parts where I thought the desert was about 20 miles away from where the film was being filmed. The music was also played by the crew. I saw it was recorded by the crew. That is always a good sign. I also thought the musical number was not very good. It was supposed to be very moving and I think it was because the acting wasn't really good. At least it wasn't particularly amazing. They kept looking for ways to put something "artsy" in this film but it didn't really work. Overall, I just thought the film was disappointing. There was a lot of interesting stuff on the web about Robert Pardo, but it was not the best film. I think the directors were trying to recreate the excitement of "Pirates of the Caribbean." However, they failed. It looked like they were trying to put in "Pirates" on purpose. At least it is a good film. There are some decent interviews with Pardo and I think they are doing a good job trying to recreate the excitement of "Pirates." They just didn't succeed.

My husband and I went to see this movie on a blizzard night, as we are a couple who enjoy seeing movies. We were treated to two very informative films and a couple of laughs. This was a thought provoking movie, that included the usual fairy tale characters of Cinderella, Snow White, Prince Charming and all. What I found very intriguing was the very interesting idea of an American, British, German, Chinese woman who did a survey on the Chinese community in America, as they were unaware that there were Chinese in America. The questions they asked were questions that were never asked, which made them very interesting. It was surprising that so many American based cultural traits were shown, such as Chinese parents giving their children to be raised in private homes, while they could always see the parents and other members of the family, so they could understand what their children were thinking. This led to a very interesting question of, "if our children had gone to private school, would they have adopted American culture?". The movie also shows how children can be raised without traditional values. This leads to a question about why are children so critical of the things they see in the media, but have no idea what is happening in the real world. I found the whole concept of public vs private education to be very interesting, but I thought the teachers/parents of the children were very good and informative. The movie also showed a good example of the first flush of Asian immigrants coming to America. There were some very nice views of the Chinese community, and of course, the people who showed up to this film. One thing that I was curious about, was how was the food cooked, the cooking seemed to be very sophisticated and professional. One of the big issues was that the only female cook was at the beginning of the movie, with a lot of negative reviews. We were not able to find any information about that, and the issue was never explained. In conclusion, I thought this was a very interesting movie, that shows the different aspects of American culture and values, and also the inner struggles of a Chinese immigrant family. I was extremely impressed by the way the movie was done, and I recommend this movie to everyone.

This is the first part of an excellent series on the privatization of the oil industry that will culminate in a conference. The Nanny State approach to regulation is still being implemented, to varying degrees, all over the world. Here is a clear indictment of this approach. The oil industry's history of deception is indisputable. But the way in which the Nanny State handles the industry is completely different. The audience is not fooled into thinking that there are no consequences. The nanny is far more powerful than anyone else, and she can accomplish what she wants with no thought, and in many cases no questions being asked. Some of the key moments in this film are clear "tells". But as the audience watches it, we see that the Nanny is not the "truth." She is a resourceful, cunning manipulator, a trickster with a devastating mind of her own. But she is not honest, or even truthful. She is "allegedly" the "truth" as her own company explains, and this company and its "truths" are constantly being contradicted by a host of "researchers" and "experts." While watching, we realize that no matter who the nanny is, and no matter who is making the "facts," what she is doing is extremely unethical. The sad truth is that people are manipulated to do what the Nanny wants. She can manipulate people by telling them what to do, and who to do it with, and how to do it. But she cannot manipulate them by telling them the truth. We are presented with the actual film, the films that are being produced, that shows the real story of the people and the corporations. This film is a powerful indictment of the Nanny State's influence in the world of oil, and of how it is influencing people's lives. I recommend this film to everyone who wants to know more about the Nanny State, or want to see a film that explains how the Nanny State is working to make the world more like the US. This is a must see film, and a very important one.

Yes, the film is 'emotional'. Yes, there are some powerful scenes. But it's almost as if no one involved in the making of this movie cared, or cared to see what the film was about. Its obviously a documentary about Frank and his 'confessions' and his decision to end his life. But it's not so much a documentary as it is a film about the extreme loneliness and despair of a man. But instead of finding empathy for Frank, the filmmakers are trying to make him look like a saint. And in that respect, this is the most interesting thing about the film. Frank is a pathetic character, the movie seems to say. He's lost his mind. And he's convinced it's his decision, not the decision of anyone else. Instead of trying to make you care for Frank, you're supposed to root for him. The only real value of the film is that it is actually about Frank and his suicide attempt. It's not about him. He's in the same boat as anyone else. His whole life is pathetic, it's not his fault. And it's his story, and it's his choice. The guy is sad and his family is all but destroyed. He's lost his sanity. So how does he become a saint? How is this documentary really about him? I don't think so. The only way the film makers made me care about Frank, or even feel empathy for him, is by showing the majority of people in Germany who knew him and still think of him as a saint. That is the only way you'd get that much empathy. But even that feels like it's more of an attitude than a reason to care for him. That's the film's biggest flaw. And it's not an attitude. It's an attitude. It's like someone who's been a cop for 20 years gets a chance to talk to his old mentor. He just seems to say, 'he's a saint, I'm glad he chose that path.' And that attitude shows through in the film. It's not an attitude that the film makers are trying to make you feel. It's an attitude that we don't feel. It's not a documentary about Frank. It's an attitude that shows through the film. And that attitude is completely unfunny. It's just like what you'd expect to see from a 21 year old filmmaker who's just been to the desert and now, is in Afghanistan and wants to get shot at. But it's unfunny because it's unfunny.

Few people are aware of the true costs of war. In the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the United States and Britain have depleted the uranium ore which is an important source of fuel for the nuclear power plants. In Iraq, U.S. troops have depleted the oil wells which supply the country with bread. "There's a lot of water in the Middle East. It is an essential part of the natural flow of the Earth," Professor Adrian Harfou, of the University of Oxford in England, told me. Harfou says the money being spent to fight terrorism and fight the war on drugs could be better spent. In the Middle East, the drug problem is growing and the food supply is being depleted. Harfou estimates the money spent on the two wars could be spent on programs that benefit the poorest people. This could include a food bank, medical facilities, and other services for the underprivileged. People can be helped without risking the lives of Americans and British troops. The film, "War is Not the Answer," tells the story of one of those programs. In the Middle East, Iran is growing stronger and better armed than ever before. The U.S. has not been able to stop the advance. "We have said the only way to prevent it is to buy them off. To keep them in check. To drive them into the arms of the bad guys," Michael Houghton, of the University of Central Missouri in Central America, told me. I asked Houghton if Iran is actually becoming better armed than the United States. "The U.S. is trying to control all the Iranian oil companies, the U.S. government owns all the energy. So they have the power to make Iran worse off than it is today," Houghton said. In the movie, Houghton shows how Iran's main economic support, oil, is being taken away from them. A couple of scenes in the film show the destruction that their energy companies have done. The real damage is done when they ship the crude oil abroad. Houghton had traveled to Iran in 1998 to help Iranians protect themselves against their oil industry being taken away. In some cases, he says they have been fired by the companies for being too friendly. Iranians used to rely on wood for cooking and heating. They can no longer do that. Iran now relies on high-octane diesel. It is now so pumped up that the gas companies can't get it to the city. The final scene in the film shows the destruction caused by the Iranian oil industry. Houghton says the oil companies have done a great injustice. "I wish the U.S. government would get its act together and help us, not the U.S. company," Houghton said. The film is a good example of what we can do to help people in the Middle East and to stop the Middle East from becoming a failed state. Iran has the ability to get its oil from the United States and Europe. The best way to do that is to ship it abroad, not in the middle of Iran. When I heard the story of the film, I wondered how much money it
