1. So powerful. People then are just like people today.

We must be vigilant today.
The wealthy and the authoritarians are using propaganda to accumulate power and wealth, and putting our world at risk, just as 100 years ago. We must be vigilant.

6. I can understand how some cultures believe that pictures taking can take a bit of one's soul ...

away. Its amazing what a difference sound makes and how immediate the restoration makes the whole piece of film seem.

7. I know what you mean.

I'm really impressed with the sound effects. Someone really thought about it and synchronized them to what we're seeing on screen. Clip clops, motors, children laughing, workers, bells clanging... it's all done very well and it really helps to set the mood and take you there.

I watch ALL of these in full screen mode... just to immerse myself.
