Critic Reviews for Examined Life
You can't help but feel that director Astra Taylor fails at her own challenge of making an academic subject come truly alive as cinema.
Taylor's stimulating film, enlivened by creative location shooting, will surely find an appreciative audience among highbrow cinephiles.
Director-writer Astra Taylor wisely avoids turning this talk fest into a talking heads fest by filming these effusive intellectuals in a variety of visually diverting, real-world environments.
There's plenty of food for thought here, though the movie is more a buffet than a meal.
To [director Astra] Taylor's credit it's as inviting and accessible as a smart conversation with fascinating friends.
Illuminating, even moving.
