The first hour of this documentary is very interesting. The story of Pat Tillman who was killed in Afghanistan and has become an icon for so many of the young men who came to Afghanistan. He was probably the most iconic player who played in the professional level in the NFL and in the military. The film begins with a brief history of the movie that showed Pat Tillman was actually in a photo at the time he was shot. After the Vietnam War ended, a change in the recruiting policy led to the early suicides of young players. They thought the military was their salvation and what they were doing wasn't right. The film shows how more players got drafted, many of them from the state of North Carolina. Many of the soldiers who were drafted after the war were diagnosed with PTSD. Many of the soldiers in the army and in the Marine Corps ended up with PTSD symptoms. The film goes on to show how more of the recruits died and how the military is still struggling with PTSD. What also amazed me about the film was the testimony from former NFL players and the former athletes who were first made into football players, who were traumatized by the war. They have since been very honest with the film and the filmmakers. The Army ended up closing its door to players suffering from PTSD symptoms. The film ends with a shocking revelation that is so deeply moving. At the end of the documentary, it also ended up showing the current issue of player suicides. I think the military is doing its best to work with its veterans, but it is far from perfect.

What an incredible look into what life is like in a low-income area of Chicago, IL. Truly amazing to see this type of everyday life and experiences with such low-income families. I can't say enough about the effort and the great passion and dedication that is put into this documentary. It was fascinating to see the inner-workings of each family and how they cope with the challenges that they face. There were even a few stories about successful people who were adopted and went on to achieve great things. There was also a number of people who went into poverty after being abandoned by their parents. One woman in particular had to fight her way out of poverty, but still had a pretty good life. The poor families who are featured in this documentary do things just by necessity. There were times in the documentary when the families had to be uprooted, but it wasn't forced on them. They chose to do so and it truly helped them to be stronger and make positive changes. It was truly incredible to see what the poor families do with the money they have and how they manage to make money to support their families. And all of this is just the tip of the iceberg. The documentary highlights some incredible stories of individuals and families who have come from poverty to the middle class and beyond. There are some stories about people who have left there roots and become successful businessmen or teachers. There were even some who have achieved incredible things in their careers, but still live on a tight budget. A number of people have sacrificed so much to make it to where they are. And there are some stories about people who have lost so much that it is almost unbelievable. So much is said, so little is said. I was very moved by this documentary. It was inspirational. It was heart-breaking. It was honest. It was real. I have never seen a documentary that I have been so moved by. It was one of the most memorable documentaries I have ever seen. The people who have made this documentary are so dedicated to their work and they do not stop to rest. I have watched their work more than once. Every single person in this documentary, not only made the documentary but are still active in their work and dedicated to it. I cannot recommend this documentary enough.

I've read a lot of the previous comments posted here and a lot of the negative ones. I think this film should be re-dubbed and given a national theatrical release. I have no problem with people that believe in various philosophies of religion, but I also don't believe in "selfism" or "cosmocentrism." I believe in a Universal God, and I believe in all religions. If you believe in something, it's usually the proper thing to do to tell others about it. The film does a great job of explaining the "people behind the curtain." It also explains the role that the US government has played in it. However, I feel that the government (and the media) have been a little too harsh with some of the subjects. I would have liked to see more of an explanation of the treatments these people have been given in order to keep them quiet. Another example would be the Greek Catholic priest who was a member of the "Adopt a Child" program, and was abused by the government in order to keep him quiet. This information was given at the end of the film. You can see that it is very clear, but I think it should have been given at the beginning. A good documentary should have a very clear, yet comprehensive, explanation of everything. I think that the first half of the film could have been more informative. This is the type of documentary that should be on the "T.V. or Video store" shelf for viewing. But, I think, it is still a good film. The movie leaves you wondering, "Why am I watching this?" I hope this is one that can be watched over and over again. I give it an A+
