Movie recommendation

Obviously F911 is what attracts most of the population these days. But I'm sure there are a lot of people who prefer to wait until it comes out on DVD/VHS. For those, here is a VERY GOOD RECOMMENDATION: City of God! WATCH IT! It is simply awesome. It is a Brazilian movie but very well made. And if you get it on DVD don't miss the special feature with the documentary "News From a Personal War". Almost as good as the movie! This is definitely one of the best Latinamerican movies I have seen. It's about the Favalas in Rio de Janeiro. You won't regret it, I promise!

Is that the story of the Doctor in the prison? If it is it sounds like a powerful story from what I've heard.

It is this one and it is also very powerful and shocking! I have visited Latin America and have seen a lot of slum there and in other places, but this is definitely the most shocking that I've seen! It's just shocking! I think you will like it Dan! And if you rent it, please let me/us know what you thought about it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
