Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky

Critics Consensus

An unlikely pairing of form and style, Michel Gondry's Is the Tall Man Happy? successfully gives Noam Chomsky's philosophical musings an expressive canvas with a delightfully anarchic animation style.

Movie Info

Director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) applies his playful imagination to animating a series of conversations with the esteemed linguist, philosopher, political commentator and activist Noam Chomsky. At the heart of these talks is Chomsky's theory of the emergence of language. In this intellectual feast, Gondry uses drawings to make complex ideas more accessible and to expand the documentary form.
