Critic Reviews for A Brief History of Time
Few of us can judge Hawking's intellect, but any of us can sense that fire, that insistence of self on self.
Morris. Hawking. Two of my favorite artists together. It couldn't miss, and it didn't.
[The film has] a sophisticated agenda that's more about association than data or personal trivia, and Morris' philosophy takes it to places a conventional documentary could never go.
A really fun ride.
A capable documentary, but the title's misleading. It's more about Hawking himself than the book this docu takes its name from.
Audience Reviews for A Brief History of Time
My favorite filmmaker, Errol Morris, has directed some of the greatest documentaries of all time, and "A Brief History of Time" is no exception. Both a bio pic of Stephen Hawking, and a look at Hawking's mind blowing theories. A must-see for both science fans, and documentary fans.
Having never read the book the material was all new to me. I thought the theories were interesting but a bit beyond me as to how he arrived at them. I found the biographical parts of the movie much more compelling. It made the case that sometimes the most gifted people are the hardest to motivate. While watching it made me wonder how many other Stephen Hawking's are out there but will never be known because the circumstances didn't line up for them to reach their true potential. Overall a good watch.
Plays with your head - in a good way.
