I can´t believe that so many people are placing blame on the homeowners as if they had any responsibility about this.
As the documentary correctly points out. For 40 years after The Great Depression, were no global crisis like this one. With all the Government regulation that was placed, banks made responsible loans to people that could afford them. If they didn´t, the loans were not given. Pure and simple.
After deregulation, the financial system began this complex loan system that many of them did not quite understand and started granting loans to people they knew could not afford.
But how could the average joe know? For decades, we always thought that banks would not give loans to people that could not afford it. The banks, accountants and economic advisers are the ones who have the "know-how" about it, not the average joe.
The documentary did not blame homeowners because:
1. They did not benefit from this like the people in Wallstreet
2. They were duped by those with knowledge.
Pure and simple.
Excellent documentary series that covers a deep wealth of information about the reality we as humans have managed to comprehend over the centuries. I really enjoyed the first episode but the second one is especially good since it delves right into some of the modern defining moments of our understanding of the cosmos, for example the Dirac equation, its monumental connection between Einsteins law of relativity and quantum mechanics the likes of which are intensely difficult to truly understand.
The only problem with this fantastically produced and well researched series by Jim Al-Khalili is that fitting all the information (almost (by a long stretch)) we know about the universe into a 2 hour series has proven a difficult task, and for a viewer who is just being introduced to the stepping stones upon our knowledge could well end up delirious.
A very fluent documentary exploring how we have gained our current knowledge of everything and nothing.
To all the netflix Buffs.
The reason that most movie buffs haven't heard of Peter Davis' "Hearts and Minds" is that it is a film not a movie. By which I mean that it is not a film made for entertainment's sake but a serious documentary and thus it isn't listed in any of the classic movie guides like Halliwell's, etc.
In addition, "Hearts and Minds" was shown 40 years ago (1974) at a time when most Americans wanted to ignore its subject matter. When America withrew from active military fighting in Vietnam in 1973 most Americans wanted to forget about the Vietnam war and put it past them.
And let's face it, outside of major metropolitan centes, documentaries are not shown in many theaters because distributors know that the vast majority of the American people are not interested in documentary films. Of course the vast majority of Americans are brain dead but that is a separate issue although it does explain their disinterest in serious dccumentary films.
Finally, one cannot ignore the controversy surrounding the film which led to its withdrawal from distribution when one of the interviewees in the film, Walt Rostow, complained about his portrayal in it and demanded that the two minutes featuring him on-camera be deleted.
Fortunately, thirty years, exactly one generation, later, this extraordinary documentary film has finally gotten the treatment and restoration it so richly deserves.
Bottom line: "Must see" is an overused cliche, but this film is too important NOT to be seen.
This documentary to me was a real eye opener when it comes to drugs and what he says is completely true! It's crazy how a synthetic drug with so many harmful chemicals in which we have no clue what chemicals they are can be legalized and the likes of heroin and crack are all illegal yet these drugs are less addictive and you can get treatment if you are a heavy user!!!
In my eyes I see all these legal highs as class a drugs and to my knowledge they have cracked down on these now and made them illegal. The things is though with these synthetic drugs being illegal it does not mean that you will not be able to buy them, it just means they will be more costly due to the risks of imprisonment and so on.
The guy which you see in the picture I actually felt sorry for he's had such a hard life and he's done heroin ect but he just can not get off smoking black mamba as it is so addictive but yet he advises you throughout the documentary to basically stay away from it due to it ruining lives and he's not wrong, he's living the homeless life on the streets with the same day to day struggles.
He describes it to be a very strong high and it almost acts as an antidepressant in a sense as it allows him to forget the life he's living and just be in a world of his own basically but you have to give it him as you will see in the documentary he really is trying to change his life around and be a great father to his kids.
There is one particular person though I want to talk about which you will see further into the film and he is only 19 or 20 years old if I remember rightly and he has a dog with him, this touched me because you know he is at such a young age and at the stage of his life where he should be entering full time employment and look at settling down ect but he has been through a lot and his past I guess he just wants to forget about. it shows you how he lives and what he lives in and to be honest it is not very pleasant and it really does make you value life more and appreciate the things you have got.
But yeah from the whole jist of things these synthetic drugs are definitely a big no no and I will certainly not be trying it out. If you are into your drugs then this will be right up your street.
This is a really fantastic documentary that throws out some crazy stats; at full throttle the Trent engine cycles 2 tonnes of air per second and each blade of the fan is subjected to 90 tonnes of force. If you are applying for a job at Rolls Royce it would be a good idea to watch this documentary first.Reviewed on April 28, 2016
I think a major problem with any mission like this is going to be government and NASA involvement. The red tape and egos involved will crush any realistic plans for making this happen.
Having said that, this documentary resonated with me enough to have me considering methods of funding a Mars mission outside of government funds. Better yet, I believe I have found the answer.
If the mission science is sound and the people involved are as driven to do it as they seem to be, the only thing missing is money.
I need to hammer out some details, then I need to decide if I want to take on the responsibility and commitment required to provide funding for such a mission.
Right now, I'd love to see this happen... but I don't want to jump into it with my eyes closed.
