6. Did the documentary leave you with any unanswered questions? If so, what were they?
We the people live in a world filled with ominous and perplexing events that make us question if the world we live in is actually as transparent as we perceive it. In the documentary, Ethos: Time to Unslave Humanity, we get an interpretation of America’s political, economical, and social being
This documentary is biased and its authenticity is questioned as to whether the facts presented are disputable or not.
4. What do you do when you don’t understand a concept immediately? I feel excited and accomplished. In the podcast it mentions that in western culture we associate understanding something immediately with being smart, and personally, this is very true.

I eventually thought, however, that I don’t think documentaries can truly show us objective reality, so that shouldn’t matter. I also thought it didn’t matter what was real footage and reconstructions because regardless the talent displayed in these segments actually happened and is impressive. Despite these conclusions, I still found myself pulled out of the movie when I couldn’t deduce if the images onscreen were archival footage or
According to Reel News Daily, on average, there are 57 movies released every month or 684 movies each year. That’s way more movies than the average person watches in a given year. So, how do we decide what movies to go see and what not to see? What’s good and what’s bad? Fortunately, we have critics who watch most of these movies and write reviews to help narrow down what movies to go see and what movies not to see. One of these critics is Robert Ebert. Robert Elbert is a honorable critic to base judgments off of because he does an exceptional job summarizing the plot, stating his personal opinions, and speaking about the actors/director’s roles in the film.
‘I AM’: In the film “I AM” Tom Shadyac explores the idea “what is wrong with our world? What can we do about it?” This can be connected to political and sociocultural aspects of our lives in Australia, and the World.

This is linked back to Humanity’ s spiritual and religious connection with themselves and others. Society is and always has been, a community and this community has always been ever changing with different leaders, contributors and ways of socialising. Tom told a story of a tribe

I have sat down about five different times to write this post, and each time I can't bring myself to do it. Not because I am ashamed, but because I don't want it to be real. I have been fighting this reality for the past few weeks. Because it is a part of my life that I have not wanted to give up, I honestly am having a hard time saying, "Jesus I give this to you"... As you read this I am sure that you are becoming a little worried as to what I am talking about, but I assure you when I tell you... You might laugh, because it is so selfish of me...

After reading different reviews from this film, I’ve chosen two different reviews one from the Washington Post and the other from Variety. Each review gives the movie at least 3 out of 4 stars but for different reasons. Firstly the WashingtonPost.com, they gave the movie 3 out of 4 starts, but open the review with a very negative view of the advertisements for the movie “There's been something off-putting about the ad campaign for "The Blind Side," a drama about a white woman who adopts an African American high school student, from trailers
