This is a film that was being pushed by the State of Mexico. It is about a young man who sets out to try and stay alive in the desert when it is destroyed by a natural disaster. He sets out in search of the only safe place he can find and how he can survive. The idea is that if you are part of a group of survivors who are together and get help from one another, you can build a little society. They call it BOMBAS. This film is part of the docu-drama series called "El Amor del Sur". It has also been made into a movie. It is about a group of three people. One of the people is a young man who has no way to make his way in the world. He is trying to learn how to survive and to make a life for himself. The other is a man who is a doctor but is part of a cult that is trying to keep the young man from leaving the group. And finally there is a man who has never been in the desert and is told that the only way to survive is to be an archaeologist. His dream is to find a lost civilization. And he believes that he has found it. The idea is that if you have the resources and knowledge to build a society, you can build a society of your own and live. This film was being pushed by the Mexican government. It is one of the very few films that talks about how bad things are in the world today. The worst thing that is going on is the pollution and the destruction of the environment. The main character had to go in search of a group of survivors who were looking for help in the desert. That is where he was met by a young woman who believes that the only way to survive is to become a "BOMBAS". I don't know if the film is from Mexico or if it is real or a propaganda film. I am not going to get into that. But the film does show that the world is in dire need of a person who can come up with a plan. And even if he is not in a group of people that have to share everything with each other, he can get the resources he needs to survive. I think that is what this film is about. It is not trying to make a political statement or a comment on the state of the world today. The main character finds out that his best friend has died and that he is leaving the group. He tries to find out what is going to happen to him

I believe this documentary was fascinating. I did not know who the man was, he asked me a few questions and when I learned he was a local boy, it brought tears to my eyes. I appreciated the filmmaker's effort to get the real, human story of his life. The problem I had with this documentary is the filmmaker never delved into the beginning of the boy's life, what he was doing at home, his father and his mom. I am still trying to figure out how the boy's father came to this boy in the first place. I think he was in the U.S. Marines. The boy has been at the center of the story because he has been in a lot of different positions. He was a skilled fisherman who owned a boat, he was an arsonist who killed his mother, he was a killer in the 1980s. Then, as the documentary mentions, he has been in prison for several years. The father was always working and supporting the family, while the mother had a difficult time staying employed. I also think the film would have been better if the boy had grown up to be a fisherman or arsonist. That would have given more insight into the man's life. I did not realize that there were two different stories. The story of the boy as a fireman and his father and the story of the boy as an arsonist. I would have enjoyed this film more if the film had just focused on the boy's life. I was surprised that this film was being produced at all. This documentary will give me some closure and hope, as it has many other people. I have to admit that I had to rewind the documentary a few times to see what I had missed the first time. My husband was excited to watch it and I was not. I am now a little more interested in watching the documentary again. I have seen a few documentaries but this is the first time I have been so engrossed in one. I would recommend it for anyone, as long as you like documentaries. The real, human story of the boy who burned down his own house and killed his parents and his brothers is worth watching. For me, the film was worth the price of admission. It is a great documentary that will make you feel good.

It is very difficult to find any of the more recent, non-mixed batch of art and cinema films being produced today, except a couple of quality documentaries. "La Moqueca" (1998) is a fine example of a mixed documentary, so the subject of this one is very good. It is a story of a few people living on the Mexico-US border and their struggle to make ends meet. One of them, "Cesar" (Francisco Loret de Alva) has been living in Mexico for many years and seems to be doing very well financially. But he has been feeling very uncomfortable in the USA. The story then shifts to a family of three (the youngest is born in the US and the oldest is from Mexico) who live in the border town of Menon and who are also struggling. The story is about their attempts to survive. The film is shot in a rather mysterious way. It seems as if the story is happening right before the camera. It is one of the things I admire about this film. It is a very short film and it is difficult to see what is going on. The way that the story unfolds is very mysterious, but it is very interesting. It is a bit like a dance, with many different actions taking place. There are some very powerful moments and I think the reason why this film is so good is because the subject matter is so difficult to deal with. It is a very good documentary that shows the difficulties of the Mexican people living in the US border. I really recommend it. This film was made by the Mexican director Ricardo Ramirez, who was working on the US-Mexico border documentary "Al Muerto" (2000) and "La Moqueca" is the last film of the trilogy.

This film is an adaptation of a very good novel, and is really worth seeing. It's set in the great American South in the 1950s, a time when the post-war economic depression was still fresh in people's minds. The film follows the life of Ritchie, a man of approximately 80 years old, and his wife, Helen, a nursing home administrator. He is a wiry, taciturn and simply man, and is often seen wandering around a city, looking for jobs, and speaking to homeless people. Helen is a caring woman, but she feels she can not bring herself to be a part of Ritchie's life, and gives him a living allowance. He lives in a kind of shack, and at night he sleeps on the roof of the city. His life is in such good stead, and he does not seem to have a care for himself, and his life seems to be made of a simple plan. However, things change when Helen becomes ill and passes away. When she was not seen, Ritchie begins to become very depressed and in a condition of being constantly on the run, and he keeps moving from place to place, looking for work. He tells his son that he would rather live in a wooden shack than a hospital. Later, the state runs out of money and shuts down the city. When Helen passes away, he is almost deserted and does not know what to do with himself. His life is shattered. His son and daughter go to a local church and turn him away, but he continues on his own. Eventually, he meets up with an old friend, a man called Dan, and tells him about the collapse of the economy and the plight of the people. The next day, he returns home to find his house in ruins. The place is now in the hands of the state, and the street outside is no longer there. He decides to call his friend Dan, who goes to find him. Ritchie, who has never left the shack, is shocked to find his house is now in the hands of the state, and that the whole street is now a wasteland. He wants to know what happened to the people who were in the street, but he is told nothing. He also does not understand the government's reason for this, and he does not know who Dan is. The film does not make much sense in terms of the social structure of the South at the time, but this is not the point. The film does not contain any fantastic imagery, nor does it contain any scenes of fantastic violence, although it does have a number of scenes of violence. The film is extremely well made. It is a lot more pleasant than I expected. The film is clearly an attempt at a "feel good" film, and the film is successful in that respect. It has a very good feel to it, although I do not think it is entirely truthful, because of the way the narrative is constructed. The film does contain a lot of factual errors, but in some cases it does not matter, because of the way the film is constructed. However, the film is not about facts, it is about a man's search for a purpose, and in doing so, it is about the South at the time, and the period in which it was made. I think the film was really well done, and the actors did a very good job, although the acting of Helen was not great. It is difficult to understand why Ritchie would want to leave the shack, as he does not want to be separated from his family. I do not think that the film is accurate, but I do not think it is dishonest. The film is certainly worth seeing, and I would recommend it.

I first saw this film when it first came out in 1991. I didn't know much about it at the time, but I was mesmerized by it. The atmosphere, the characters, the stunning photography, and the soundtrack. I'm happy to finally have seen this film again, and I think I'm better for it. The film is directed by Josh Brolin, who did great work in "The Blind Side" and "Fences." In this film, Brolin uses a lot of documentary style to create a feel for the time period. The overall tone is dark, but the story is focused on the characters, the city, and the photographer. Brolin uses a lot of hand-held shots and slow motion to create an unsettling atmosphere, which is similar to "The Blair Witch Project." I especially like the music, which has an eerie, repetitive feel to it. The film also features a lot of great narration from people that were involved in the photography. As a big fan of the documentary style, I think it's great that the film features some of the people involved. The film does have some shortcomings, but I think it does better than most films I've seen. One thing I noticed about this film is the length. The film is four hours and a half long. The documentary style does drag the film down, but it still stands out as a good documentary film. The characters are engaging, and the movie never becomes dull. I think this is because the movie has a lot of emotional power. Some of the characters are very compelling and the story is powerful. Overall, "El Norte" is a great film, and I think it's the best documentary I've ever seen. 8/10.
