Storyline

The summary of this plot holds true today for 2019 and beyond. The fact that the original summary noted the scientist as psychotic and out for revenge speaks to a long standing bias against the truth in history. There is no psychosis or revenge in this story. Listen and learn from history.

I love this movie
10 December 2001 | by PIST-OFFSee all my reviews

To watch this film you must abandon conventional wisdom about movies. This is not a film for people who watch Duece Bigalow and Armageddon. Not only is the movie an intelligent exploration into the human mind and science, politics, and poetry. But it is also an exploration into the mechanics of conversation and the meaning of life. The addition in the title of A Film For Passionate Thinkers rings completely true. The musical score is a relaxing piece. The conversation flows naturally from topic to topic, point to point person to person. I really like this movie.
