'Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?' (2013) (Trailer below)


"An animated conversation with Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Noam Chomsky.  A series of interviews featuring linguist, philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky done in hand-drawn animation. Incorrigibly imaginative, Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) conducted a series of audio-only interviews with philosopher-king Noam Chomsky over several months and then (light bulb) decided to animate their lively discussions."

“These two very smart people share an odd but genuine chemistry.” -David Lewis, SF Gate.

    Excellent documentary. All the topics presented by the interview could be used as an index for further research in the realm of linguistic and cognitive development. Got to own it!

    AS I indicated, I was very tired, but I did catch enough of the movie to say the content was very deep. It really is a counter argument to rationalism, not that he did not believe in reason, but that reason is the the all Encompassing panacea that rationalist makes it out to be.

    Hope everyone's having a great weekend!

    Parking Info:
    Not much info to give for this theater except the area is mostly all street parking. So give yourself a little extra time to find a spot.

    See you in a bit!
