    It works at moments but some parts were weaker. Cornel West is really good here.

    Excellent primer to 'Thinking' . Covers a broad range of real world challenges and provides insight on how to define those in our mental models ...highly recommended watching for anyone interested in learning to think and be curious about the world..

    Interesting movie. Wish they would have interviewed philosophers with a more conservative perspective just for the sake of balance. Although in order to balance out Avital Ronell they would have had to interview Thomas Aquinas himself.

    Makes for an intriguing film. At times funny, and at its best, insightful.

    With the exception of two segments featuring Cornel West and Michael Hardt, this is a profoundly insipid documentary about the state of academic philosophy today. The "going-for-a-walk" format of each segment is gimmicky, and the "insights" of several interviewees -- notably Peter Singer and Martha Nussbaum -- are shockingly dim. I didn't like Taylor's documentary on Zizek, and this one proves to be just as fawning and banal.
